3rd of 3 in triple play Saturday
(NHL) Winnipeg vs. Calgary, 08/01/2020 10:30 PM, Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: 106.00 Winnipeg (Away)
Bookmaker: PinnacleSports
Result: Loss
The Jets top line, including Patrik Laine, is likely to key an opening night win in this best of five playoff series. Calgary's top line, including Johnny Gaudreau, saw it's productivity drop way down this season in comparison with last season. Also, no matter whom the Flames are using in goal, Winnipeg holds the edge between the pipes with Connor Hellebuyck standing up tall this season. Better goaltending and better top line players will be important early in this post-season as teams adjust after the long layoff. That said, in this case the advantage goes to Jets in both key departments and the designated road team in this one is where the value is a small money line underdog. Per the above as well as the simulation report, play WINNIPEG
