Pick Details

(1) Winnipeg vs. Ottawa (2) 7:00 PM | Thu, Jan 21 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 5
Under 6.5 (-110) @ Fanduel

I'm playing on Winnipeg/Ottawa UNDER the total. These teams met a couple of nights ago. The O/U line was six. One had to lay some extra juice to play the 'under.' Now, two nights later, we're working with a 6.5, rather than a six. That may not sound like much, but that extra 1/2 goal could easily prove to be significant. Yes, Tuesday's game finished above the total with seven goals. However, only six of those goals were scored in regulation and the sixth of those came when there was an empty net. Indeed, that game could have easily been lower-scoring. Yet, because of that game, we're working with a higher O/U line. Offensive players Laine for Winnipeg and Stutzle both missed Tuesday and are both questionable again tonight. Prior to Tuesday, the Sens were off a 3-2 game while the Jets were off a 3-1 game. Look for this one to prove lower-scoring than many will be expecting. 


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.
