Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000)
Pick
TB (-145) @ Fanduel

The set-up: Do we really need to overanalyze this pick? This Islanders have great goaltending and they're a very deep and disciplined team. The Lightning have fantastic goaltending and they are filled with talent, especially on the offensive end. The Bolts have been off for a few days healing up though, while the Islanders just went through a gruelling seven game series, one which they held a 3-1 lead at one point. One of these teams is fresh, and the other is dog tired. I think this will play a significant factor in Game 1.

The pick: Note as well that Tampa is 7-2 in its last nine after a victory and playing with three or more days of rest. I think this is going to be a competitive series, but I don't think Game 1 will be. This price is great, the play is Tampa.

The is a 10* GAME OF THE WEEK on the Lightning.

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.
