💎 PITT PENGUINS ML -112 ( 1u )

  • I know this pick might not be sexy or pretty because Pittsburgh is coming off of a very disappointing loss to Boston in their last game and they no longer control their ending in the Wild Card race. But The Penguins do really need to win their last two games and get help from Washington and Detroit to make the postseason at this point. Pittsburgh has played some good hockey over the last few weeks and they are now 22-14-4 at home this year. Nashville is pretty much locked into the first wild card spot in the West, so they don’t have anything to play for. The Predators have won three of their last four games and they are 24-13-3 on the road but they will take very few risk here because they have hopes at a playoff run! These two teams have very similar stats on the season, but I think Pittsburgh has the edge at home. We will roll the dice and Take the Penguins here.
