(35) Dallas vs. Vegas (36) 8:00 PM | Tue, Sep 08 2020
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1060) - Final Total 3
Pick
Over 5.5 (-106) @ pinnacle

The set-up: I had a play on the "under" in Game 1, but I expect a much faster-paced and ultimately higher-scoring contest in Game 2. I definitely didn't expect a 1-0 win by Dallas in Game 1 and I defintely don't expect the Knights to be held scoreless here. In fact, clearly it'll add fuel to the fire for this talented Vegas offense, which I expect will answer big time in Game 2. Dallas entered as the highest scoring playoff team in the league with nearly four goals per game, so the Stars have certainly been "adaptable" throughout the playoffs.

The pick: Finally note that both teams have seen the total go "over" the number in this position: Dallas has seen the total go "over" in eight of its last 11 after holding its opponent scoreless in a 1-goal victory, while Las Vegas has seen the total eclipse the posted number in 14 of its last 21 after getting blanked in its previous outing. This number is low.

The is a 10* TOTAL PLAY-BOOK on the OVER Stars/Knights.

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.
