Ricky's 8* play on Vancouver +1.5.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Canucks are 7-3 in their last 10 games as an underdog.
- The Knights have won six of the last eight meetings, but four of those games were decided by one goal.
- The Canucks rank second in the playoffs on the power play (25.6%).
Verdict: Let us not overreact to the score of Game 1.
