5-2-13 Hockey thread, picks, info and a whole lot more
Last night didn't have the same excitement as the first nights games. But the Sharks/Nucks was a great game. Niemi showed why he is a cup winning goaltender. Also it was the same ol same ol in the B's and Pens game. Both teams continued their domination of the Leafs and Isles.
If you ignore history you will be defeated by it. Or worse yet, your wallet.
Historically the team that wins game one, wins game two at a .590 clip for the preliminary round.
So the Blues look like a good play from a historical standpoint. Laying -117 you would have to win 53.91% of your wagers to break even. With a historical winning percentage of .590 that is more than enough to roll the dice with the Blues tonight.
Now with the Ducks being -137 faves, you would have to win 57.80% of your wagers to break even. So this isn't really worth the risk. You just have to go with who you think will win the game.
