Money Line: -125.00 Pittsburgh (Home)
New York averages 2.71 GPG, and it allows 2.23.
Pittsburgh averages 3.45 GPG, and it concedes 2.77.
These teams are evenly matched, but I don't think that you can overlook how imporatnt home ice advantage will be in this Game 1.
New York is just 11-13-3-1 on the raod (including just 12-16 on the PUCK LINE away from friendly confines.)
Pittsburgh is 22-4-1-1 at home.
The bottom line is, I don't think the Penguins are getting enough respect from the oddsmakers in this one. This line should be larger to open up this series considering Pittsburgh's clear home ice advantage its enjoyed this season.
I'm laying the price, the play is PITTSBURGH.
Good luck, NP
