Game Predictions – 2/12/2006

This is the final day of NHL games before the Olympic break and after a 4 for 9 day yesterday hopefully we can end on a positive note by winning 5 or more of today’s 7 games. Yesterdays results have my betting balance at $99.20, just below the $100 mark I started with. I’m pretty dissapointed with that and really want to see it stay above the $100 point. Hopefully today’s game get us there.

Home Team Road Team Predicted Winner Confidence
Edmonton(-340) St. Louis(+270) Edmonton Strong
Los Angeles(+130) Dallas(-150) Dallas Some
Carolina(-170) Buffalo(+150) Carolina Some
Detroit(-185) Colorado(+165) Detroit Some
Phoenix(+150) San Jose(-170) San Jose Some
Anaheim(-300) Chicago(+240) Anaheim Good
Vancouver(-165) Minnesota(+145) Vancouver Some

Generally I can’t really dissagree with any of the predicted winners. All my predictions agree with the betting line favourites. But some of those betting lines are intriguing. Buffalo at +150, Colorado at +165 and St. Louis at +270 all could be interesting bets.

    I had a good day yesterday, going 8 of 9, only missing out on the Islanders’ win against Jersey. I betting balance currently rests roughly around the $170 mark. We could see a couple of surprises today, but the Carolina/Buffalo, Detroit/Colorado, and Dallas/Los Angeles games are must sees. A month ago, the Stars/Kings game would be very intriguing, but LA has only won 4 of their last 12 games, while Dallas has opened up a 12 point lead over the Kings. This is a potential playoff matchup, as the teams would play each other if the playoffs started today.

    Strong: None (still)
    Good: EDM, LA
    Some: MIN, ANH, SJ, DET, CAR

    Minnesota seems like one of the hottest teams… I think the plus money on them is a very good chance also….

    Betting with Los Angeles, Colorado, Buffalo, and Minnesota are good bets because all of those games could go either way.
