Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 7
Pick
Over 5 (-110) @ williamhill

I'm playing on Detroit/Columbus OVER the total. Recent Red Wing games have been low-scoring including a 1-0 game the last time these teams met. Those results have worked in our favor by keeping this O/U line nice and low. I believe that it'll prove to be too low. Keep in mind that 16 of the past 17 meetings have had O/U lines of 5.5 or higher. The Wings give up 3.0 goals per game while the Jackets give up 3.3. After facing stingier teams (Columbus played Nashville, while Detroit faced Tampa) both offenses should welcome the chance to face another non-playoff team which allows more scoring chances. Columbus scored four goals last time out, a 4-2 win over the Predators. In their previous game, the Jackets allowed four, a 4-3 loss. The OVER is 9-2 the last 11 times that the Jackets played with one day's rest in between games and 7-1 the Jackets' last eight home games. While there's always a chance of a push, when playing with an O/U line of five, I feel that this one has a greater chance at producing more than five goals than it does less than five.

FAQs

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.
