Pick Details

(25) Columbus vs. Nashville (26) 8:00 PM | Sat, Jan 16 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 7
Over 5.5 (-110) @ Fanduel

The set-up: I had a play on the "over" in these team's game on Thursday night, and while that one came up short in the Predators 3-1 victory, I believe that their second matchup will be a much more wide open affair, as Columbus will be out to push the pace and get a lot more pressure on net. Columbus has in fact seen the total fly "over" the number in eight of its last 11 road games after being held to one or less goals in a road loss in its last outing.

The pick: The Predators offense looked better as the game wore on, so I think the "rust" is now definitely off for both of these talented and deep teams. All signs point to this one flying over sooner, rather than later.

This is a 10* TOTAL COACH'S CORNER on the OVER Jackets/Predators.


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.
