Pick
WIN (-152) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on WINNIPEG. On the surface, this might appear like two teams heading in opposite directions. The Senators, to their credit, have continued to fight hard, despite the fact that they won't be going to the playoffs. In fact, they're 5-2 their last seven games and they picked up a point in one of those two losses. The Jets, on the other hand, have gone through the motions recently and they're 0-6 their last six games. Yes, they're already locked into a spot but I expect the Jets to play with a sense or urgency tonight. They absolutely can't afford to enter the playoffs like this and this is a perfect chance to pick up a win. Sure, the Sens have won two of three. However, those two wins came against a Vancouver team which was also essentially playing out the string and which had recently dealt with the NHL's worst bout of Covid. In their last game against Montreal, the Sens were catching an exhausted Montreal team. Yet, as that game got into the third period, the Habs dominated. Indeed, the Sens are still a bad team and when a superior opponent plays with its top intensity, the Sens are unable to match them. Thats what I expect to be the case tonight. Winnipeg hopes to have Lowry back in the lineup tonight, after he's missed the past four games. He'd be a huge boost but with or without him, Winnipeg is coming to play. The Jets have won four of their last five visits here and they're 8-2 the last 10 meetings in the series overall. The Jets, who have been better on the road than at home this season, are also 3-0 the past three times that they played with two day's rest in between games and 19-10 (+7.5) against teams with a losing record. They stop the bleeding tonight.

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.
