Our NHL Free Pick ponders the possibility of the Flyers pulling off a second straight upset in consecutive evenings. They got by the Blues on the road being a +160 range underdog. Now they stroll into Dallas getting over +200 in their effort against the Stars. Is there any value in this or should we examine alternate bets for this one? HRWager will gauge which ways the wind of profit will blow in this one and issue their Free Pick to Profit by.
NHL Free Pick : Attrition
Rest is an undervalued aspect in NHL wagering. The Flyers might be tempted to take the night off as they have already overachieved in this mini two game round trip. Back to back games being the underdog are so hard on the team. This so much so as the Stars have two days of complete rest and were at home having it. Stars blew a four goal lead in the third period at home in an odd trend that they do after road trips that are longer than four games. However in the next game, they are a strong out to wager on.
Dallas Power Play
The struggle appears to be over in terms of Dallas having the man advantage. An o for 11 drought was quenched with two for three against the Hurricanes last time out. When this facet of their already potent offense clicks then they are a force at home. Couple that with the already tired Flyers and we have a puckline to ponder.
Headscratcher as the puckline at – 1 1/2 has moved in the opposite direction from +110 to +130. HRWager is of the opinion that this market move is an error. A ML favorite of near the -230 level with their level of offense should be more towards even money than +130 in the puckline. Too much value to ignore in this one. HRWager’s Free Pick to Plunder is the PL – 1 1/2 on the Stars. Good fortune and we will see you later on today here at the HRW.
