Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 5.0 Evaluation: Loss (-500)
BUF (125) @ Draftkings

Taking the Sabres again for 5* here...

Buffalo has been impressive so far this season despite losing their first two games. They finally got the goals they deserved last game against the Flyers when they put up 6 in an early blowout (on Hart no less). They played great against the Capitals as well but couldn't get anything going on the scoreboard.

The Flyers were the opposite. They got outplayed against the Penguins the first two games but came away with wins. 

The Sabres still have some value here despite dominating last game. They generated 57% of expected goals compared to Philadelphia's 44%. With the Sabres as a decent underdog again this has to be a bet.

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.
