Game Predictions – 2/2/2006
Well, yesterday wasn’t quite as good a day for predictions as the previous day but I was still 3 for 6 so it wasn’t all bad. With 9 games today I am aiming for 6 or preferably more correct.
My betting total has dropped to $108.04 because I only bet on 4 games since the Rangers and Red Wings odds to win were so bad (-450 for the Rangers and only point spread odds for the Wings). That means I was just 1 for 4 in the games I bet on getting only Dallas correct. Today I have bet on all games so I won’t make that mistake again.

Most of the predictions make sense although surprisingly St. Louis has been playing better recently so it would not surprise me if they defeated the also bad Blackhawks. Columbus might be the best team in the western conference the last several weeks. They defeated a strong Calgary team last night and who knows, maybe they can make it back-to-back Alberta wins tonight. The best odds of the day go to the Minnesota Wild currently have a +135 money line to win at Bowmans. Although I haven’t predicted them to win, the money lines for Montreal (+140) and Philadelphia (+140) might entice some to go against the prediction. Especially so in Montreal’s case.
