Pick Details

(29) Vancouver vs. Calgary (30) 10:00 PM | Sat, Jan 16 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 9.0 Evaluation: Win (900)
CAL (-138) @ pinnacle
Calgary comes into this game far more rested than the Canucks, who had to play Connor McDavid twice to open the season. Flames are coming off an overtime loss in which they outplayed the Winnipeg Jets and should have won the game. 
Jakob Markstrom plays his former team for the first time after leaving, and did not look great in his season debut. I expect him to come out with less nerves and more confident play tonight.
Calgary is the play 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.
