Chicago Blackhawks vs Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas Golden Knights over Chicago Blackhawks Game 1: Lehner is expected to start for Veg vs. Crawford we get a med adv in goal. Chic would not even be here if not for the revised playoff format. That does not indicate they will roll over however it does point to the gap in these 2 teams. Chic is going to find the going much tougher than facing Edm who plays a similar undisciplined game like Chic. Chic is very weak defensively. Unless Crawford stands on his head this is a mis-match. Veg is also expected to get back Pacioretty providing even more depth.

Washington Nationals vs New York Mets

Washington Nationals over New York Mets: This is a pitching re-match which we won from 08/04. Venue changes circumstances remain value is present. Matz velocity is down. Corbin went 5.6 against Nym last time out he did give up 8 hits but was able to K8 as well limiting the damage. We have a med adv in SP. Although statistically the bullpens are equal Wash sets up better for this one than Nym giving us a small adv here. Wash offense has really underperformed so far while the Nym are where expected.

Detroit Tigers vs Pittsburgh Pirates

Detroit Tigers over Pittsburgh Pirates: Musgrove was due to start for Pitts but a sore ankle will have him sidelined. Brault is expected to be the opener but regardless only specify the Det pitcher or simple bet action. Brault faced Det Fri threw 32 pitches did not get an out. 3 hits 3BB 4ER. He will not go deep and although both bullpens are overused and bad Pitts is in worse shape. Turnbull is decent pitcher on a bad team. Det is much better against LH. Pitts is expected to be without 3baseman Evans one of their better hitters.
