(51) Montreal vs. Edmonton (52) 9:00 PM | Mon, Jan 18 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-800)
EDM (-100) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on EDMONTON. The Oilers are only playing their fourth game but already they're playing in the "revenge" role for the second time. After losing their opener against the Canucks, the Oilers found themselves facing them again for their second game. Playing with very recent "revenge," they immediately bounced back and salvaged the "split" of the 2-game series. Once again, having lost 5-1 to these same Canadiens, the Oilers find themselves "playing for the split." Once again, I expect them to respond with a huge effort. Even factoring in Montreal's win, the Oilers have still taken two of the last three meetings in the series. Going back further finds Edmonton at 5-2 the past seven meetings and 10-4 the past 14. There's no question that the Habs outplayed and outworked them on Saturday. Hockey's funny though. Expect an entirely different result, as the revenge-minded Oilers bounce back and resume their recent dominance in the series. 


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.
