Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 5.0 Evaluation: Win (800)

Taking the Red Wings for 5* here...

Detroit outplayed the Jackets last game pretty significantly but ended up losing. They generated 63% of expected goals last game compared to 37% for Columbus. The Red Wings don't seem to be as bad as they were last season, already grabbing a win against the Hurricanes. I don't think this line should be higher than it was last game considering Detroit played the better game. I watched the game and at least two of the Jackets' goals were off lucky bounces.

This line is way too high considering the Jackets are a mediocre team and the Red Wings were competitive last game.

Good luck!


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.
