Pick Details

(45) Ottawa vs. Calgary (46) 9:00 PM | Mon, Apr 19 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 6.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1200)
CAL (-200) @ Betamerica

I'm playing on CALGARY. The Sens have actually beaten the Flames the past few meetings. There is no way that Calgary can afford to let it happen again. Two of those three wins were at Ottawa. The Sens are worse on the road and the Flames are better at home. Calgary has still won three of the past four meetings here and 11 of the past 14. The Sens, who are off a 4-0 upset win, are 0-6 the past six times that they were off a win by two or more goals, an ugly 8-32 their last 40 in that situation. Meanwhile, the Flames are 3-0 when playing with two day's rest in between games. Calgary gets some payback and a much-needed two points.


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.
