FLA (-149) @ williamhill

T.M. Selection: Panthers (10* BANKROLL BUILDER).

Chicago just got destroyed in two games in Tampa, and now it travels to face a Panthers team which sees its first action of the season. The Blackhawks are dealing with injury issues right now, most notably to Jon Toews, which is obviously big for this overall younger and rebuilding Chicago team. Dallas had a COVID outbreak, so now the Panthers finally get to take the ice. Note that Florida is 5-1 in its last six vs. teams with a winning percentage below .600. The Blackhawks are also just 1-6 in their last seven now as an underdog. Even without top goaltender Sergei Bobrvosky in net, I like the home side to dig deep here and deliver; lay the price!

T.M. Prediction: 4-2 Panthers.

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.
