Home teams are ruling the games lately! We got a huge card today, with 11 games, 9 of them involving games where teams went to head last night or the night before. I missed posting CLB at 2pm as a system play and totally omitted the Habs as a play I loved, I had mentioned the Canucks defense was so banged up and how much I liked them.
Three new angles that I have been tracking that might be something to look at both short and long term are as follows.
Scenario #1 – Teams that are playing each other in back to back games, in which the home team loses the first game, the record of the home team in the second game is 10-3! We have one team that fits this system tonight with Anaheim.
Scenario #2 – Teams playing back to back road games on consecutive nights tend to go under the total in the 2nd game. So far that trend is 4-2 when teams play on the road back to back nights. We have one team that fits this system with LA tonight.
Scenario #3 - One last angle I am tracking that is slightly profitable and similar to Scenario #1, is when any team loses the first game of a back to back against the same team, regardless if it’s on the road or at home, those teams are 11-7 in that situation. Today we have NJ, Buffalo, NYR, Detroit, SJ, Nashville, Vegas, Anaheim and LA.
As for 1st period totals going over, it has taken a huge hit the last few nights. Last night it went 1-4, 28-45 on the season.
Road teams were 1-4 last night. 27-46 on the season. The homeside is the way to go lately!
Game totals going over the total went 5-0 last night, 44-27-2, which is still a very profitable angle.
Gamenotes for today/tonight –
4 afternoon games and the first two could go either way. Detroit and Chicago should be a good battle. Buffalo is playing yet again a depleted star power Caps team.
Leafs/Flames – Calgary has played half the games Toronto has and you gotta think they are a rested team!
Vegas/AZ – 4th straight game these two have against each other. Vegas won the first two, lets see if AZ can get the split!
NYI/NJ – All 4 NYI games have gone under the total, 3 of the 4 games have under the total for NJ.
NYR/Pitt – All 5 Pens games have gone over the total.
LA/STL – 4 of each of their 5 games have gone over the total.
SJ/Minny – SJ plays their 6th straight on the road while Minny continues their hot start.
Preds/Stars – Can the Preds rebound from an embarrassing effort losing 7-0 on Friday night?
Avs/Ducks – Avs playing their 4th game on the road in 6 nights.
Oilers/Jets – Back to back nights at home for the Jets, while the Oilers should be a rested bunch.
Today’s plays –

LA/STL u5.5(1 Unit)System play #2
NYR/Pitt o6.5(-107)(2 Units)
