Analyst’s Pick

Milan wins in regulation.

There’s no added value on this pick from the sims, but all signs point to Milan winning this outright. The odds — at 1.84 — indicate there’s a 54 percent chance Milan wins in regulation. They do that in 43 percent of AccuScore sims, quite a bit lower than the odds listed in most books. With that said, though, Milan is playing with a goal in mind, and their opponents are not. Milan winning is a four-star (out of four) AccuScore hot trend.
