Pick Details

(25) Columbus vs. Nashville (26) 8:00 PM | Sat, Jan 16 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1100) - Final Total 7
Under 5.5 (-110) @ pinnacle

T.M. Selection: Jackets/Preds UNDER (10* TOTAL TRADE-MARK).

Columbus lost this game 3-1 on Thursday and I expect a similar hard-fought and lower-scoring affair here as well. Columbus was one of the best defensive teams last year, but it struggled offensively, tied for fourth-fewest in the league. The Jackets had 30 pucks on net in that opening game, but managed only the one goal. Nashville's Juuse Saros stopped 29 of 30 shots for the Predators. While Nashville scored the victory in its opener, note that it's seen the total go under the number in eight of its last 11 home games after holding its previous opponent to one or less goals in a victory. This one has under written all over it!

T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.


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.
