(63) Chicago vs. Florida (64) 7:00 PM | Tue, Jan 19 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score CHI 4 at FLA 5
1.5 CHI (-154) @ pinnacle

I'm playing CHICAGO on the puck-line. (+1.5 goals.) The Hawks are off to an 0-3 start and it may indeed prove to be a long year for them. That said, they're a long way from writing off their season and I expect their very best effort tonight. This is the second of b2b games between these teams. Florida pulled away for a 5-2 win a couple of nights ago. You're going to see a lot of these b2b spots this season. While it doesn't always result in victories, more often than not, the team which lost the opener tends to elevate its effort in the rematch. Desperate to avoid falling to 0-4, we can expect the revenge-minded Hawks to leave it all on the ice tonight. With the Panthers fairly steep favorites on the moneyline, we're able to get an extra +1.5 goals for a relatively reasonable price. I expect AT LEAST a "puck-line cover."


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.
