Saturday Pix - 4 system plays!!!!
Last night 2-0 +2.00 Units
YTD 174-156-3 +25.86 Units
We got a lot of hockey today with 11 games spread throughout the day on this Saturday! Oilers/Jets should be a great game with 2nd place on the line in the North Division. Edmonton has been off for a week now while Winnipeg returns from a 5 game roadie. Preds/Canes and Florida/TB have the top 4 teams going head to head in the Central Division.
Plenty of other teams need wins badly as they continue to fight for their playoff lives. Montreal, Chicago, Dallas, St. Louis, NYR, Arizona and Philadelphia to name a few! I find lately afternoon games tend to go under the total, especially ones that are in the early afternoon!
**I have started to research teams that come off at least a 5 game road trip and how they fare in their first game back home.** Its 9-7 to date. Play Edmonton and St. Louis tonight!
Scenario #1 – Teams that are rested, either sitting at home or on the road while their opponent plays the night before. 19-9 over the last month of tracking it! The under is 16-11-1 in these spots. Ottawa fits the system tonight.
Scenario #2 – 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 74-49.
Scenario #3 – 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 34-24-2 when teams play on the road back to back nights. NYI/Boston fit the system tonight. SJ/Minny fit the system tonight.
Scenario #4 - 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 95-69 in that situation.
