(7) NY Islanders vs. Tampa Bay (8) 8:00 PM | Tue, Sep 15 2020
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1370) - Final Total 3
Pick
Over 5 (-137) @ pinnacle

The set-up: New York will have to go on the attack today to stave off elimination. That'll leave it susceptible on the back end to the opportunistic Lightning. I simply can't see how the Islanders can "sit back" and wait for the Lightning to make a mistake, they're going to have to press from start to finish, even if they have the lead. From a situational stand point, this one definitely sets up as a faster-paced affair in my opinion.

The pick: Note as well that the Islanders have seen the total go "over" the number in nine of their last 12 after scoring one goal or less in a three goals or larger loss in their previous outing. This number is a little low.

This is a 10* TOTAL BEST OF THE BEST on the OVER Islanders/Lightning.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
