Game Predictions – 12/12/2006

We have a full schedule of games tonight and here are the algorithms predictions.
If you are a betting man, definitely be cautious on the St. Louis-Chicago game as often when a team changes coaches they have a short term (3-5 games) surge in their play before falling back to where they were. I think the Blues probably win tonight. Los Angeles is being listed as the small favourite against San Jose which is quite odd. I am not sure I buy that one but the algorithm has proven me wrong before. Most of the other predictions make some sense.
