Pick Details

(3) Washington vs. Philadelphia (4) 12:30 PM | Sat, Apr 17 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 6.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1194) - Final Score WAS 6 at PHI 3
1.5 PHI (-199) @ pinnacle

I'm playing PHILADELPHIA on the puckline (+1.5 goals) The Flyers have a score to settle in this one. Not only have the Capitals beaten them four straight times, but the Caps also embarrassed them by a 6-1 score in the most recent meeting. Since that 4/13 beating, the Flyers responded with a 2-1 shootout win over Pittsburgh, the type of win they can build some momentum from. The Caps, on the other hand, check in off an upset loss to lowly Buffalo. While that 5-2 loss marked their third staight "lopsided" result, the Caps had seen four of their previous five decided by a single goal. The Flyers have seen five of their last eight decided by a single goal. I'm expecting another tight one, the revenge minded Flyers bringing their best effort and earning AT LEAST a "puck-line cover." 


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.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
