It's the biggest betting edge of the night in the hockey market.
The algorithm targets the total and factors in injuries, matchups, rest, rotations, travel and every other factor associated with tonight's game.
The algorithm provides about a 22% edge in betting value, which indicates the pick has implied odds that are more than 22% higher than the odds available to you in the markets.
