Taking the Canadiens for 8 units here...

Montreal did what they often do and blew a 2 goal lead to lose in OT. That was against the Leafs though, who are better than this Oilers team.

In their last 25 regular season games, the Canadiens are 2nd in the league in expected goals percentage, compared to the Oilers in 22nd place. The Oilers also played the Canucks twice and split those games. The Canucks were near the bottom of the league in expected goals as well, so it's not surprising they split the games.

Canadiens are more rested and are the better team. I feel good about their chances to get a win here.

Good luck!


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.
