Pick Details

(19) Philadelphia vs. NY Rangers (20) 7:00 PM | Thu, Apr 22 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1460)
NYR (-146) @ pinnacle
The Rangers have lost consecutive games just once since mid March, and their last consecutive losses included one to these Flyers. They also just got blown out by their in-state rival, the Islanders, on Tuesday night and had a short trip back to Manhattan. They have outscored the Flyers 18-5 in their last 3 matchups, despite having lost the last one in Philly.
-The Flyers will be without Carter Hart, their starting goaltender, for this one, and have started to lose their offensive firepower with their season slipping away, as they’re now 24th in the NHL in xGF/60 L10 games
-The Rangers are just 5 points ahead of the Flyers in the division standings, so this is their chance to pull away for the season. The Rangers have heavily relied on their home offense to win games this year, scoring the 4th most goals per game at home in the NHL. They get the 2nd worst NHL defense on the road to this point in the season, and they get their starting goalie back in net after one of his worst performances of the year. This should be a 5-1 blowout win, with the Rangers securing another offensive explosion here.


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.
