Game Predictions – 1/23/2006
There are 9 games on the schedule today which means a very busy schedule for a Monday. Some good geographic rivalry games too like Philadelphia/Pittsburgh, Ottawa/Toronto, Calgary/Edmonton and Los Angeles/Anaheim plus a very good division rivalry in Detroit/Nashville. It’s too bad we get such a sucky schedule yesterday and then so many good games today. I must say, the schedule has been pretty horrible this year and the NHL really needs to work on it a bit for next season.
I can’t really argue with most of the predictions my algorithm spit out and I can’t see a lot of upsets happening. Maybe Los Angeles/Anaheim could surprise with an Anaheim win but aside from that the predictions seem reasonable and likely.
In the two pick-em games I am going to predict Detroit to win a close game over Nashville, 3-2 and I’ll pick the home team Edmonton to beat Calgary 4-3.
Here are my success rate statistics so far.
Strong: 92 of 127, 72.4%
Good: 134 of 207, 64.7%
Some: 92 of 170, 54.1%
151 games were pick-em games
