Pick Details

(33) Washington vs. Pittsburgh (34) 12:00 PM | Sun, Jan 17 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800)
PIT (-109) @ Draftkings

I'm playing on PITTSBURGH. Caps are 2-0. Pens are 0-2. No-brainer on the Caps, right? Not in my opinion. Crosby and co. are going to be desperate to avoid falling to 0-3. We can absolutely expect their best effort. While the Caps may have held the Sabres to a single goal last time out, they're just 1-8 the past nine times that they allowed two goals or less in their previous game. The Crosby/Ovechkin games are usually good ones. Pittsburgh has taken three of the past five meetings. In this case, playing at home and highly motivated to avoid the 0-3 start, I expect the Pens to have the advantage. 


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.
