Pick Details

(59) Chicago vs. Detroit (60) 7:30 PM | Thu, Apr 15 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1600)
CHI (-160) @ caesars

This is a play on the CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS for our NHL Thursday Breakaway. Chicago has won two straight games following a 1-3 slide and it remains four points behind Nashville for the fourth spot in the NHL Central Division. The Blackhawks are 4-0 in their last four games as a road favorite. Detroit is coming off a pair of huge upset wins over Carolina as +288 and +309 underdogs which puts it in a great go against situation here. The Red wings are 9-9-4 at home so there is no big edge here especially coming off two straight home losses prior to those upset victories. The Red Wings are 5-15 in their last 20 games following a win. Here, we play against teams against the money line with a winning percentage between .300 and .400 off a road win against a division rival, playing a team with a losing record in the second half of the season. This situation is 41-14 (74.5 percent) since 1996. 10* (59) Chicago Blackhawks


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.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
