  1. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Vancouver Canucks - Phoenix Coyotes Selection Phoenix Coyotes (+1.0) (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 21/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.86 Reasoning Vancouver is coming off to tonights match with a three game losing streak mostly due to bad defending. Their latest game was a real nightmare as Vancouver hosted Chicago only to end up being the losing side with a 1-7 final score. Of last nine games played the Canucks have allowed atleast three goals in six occasions so it's no wonder the offense can't keep up although scoring 32 goals in last ten games. On home ice they've been good winning six of eight games played outscoring the opponents 27-19. Special teams have been excellent with pp at 27.0% and pk at 86.7%. Luongo is set to start and he has been fairly good with a .907save% and a 2.86GAA during 15 games (the Canucks expect better performances from him, no doubt). Phoenix has been very successful of late winning five straight games. On road they've also posted nice numbers winning five out of ten games played being able to make many of the games tight affairs (five games ended with a one goal difference). Scecial teams have been so-so with pp at 16.9% and pk at 78.7%. Bryzgalov is set to start on goal and he has been solid through 17 games played posting a .918save% and a 2.80GAA. While Vancouver should be concidered a favourite here no doubt they are still going through huge defensive problems. I expect them to come in playing a simple game not trying to make many mistakes after last games fiasko against Chicago. This should suit Phoenix just fine as they like to play it tight on road and it's been working for them so far. So in my opinion this should be a tight affair and Pinnacle's offering on Phoenix +1.0 is more than enough for me to bite and offers nice protection.
  2. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Anaheim Ducks - Edmonton Oilers Selection Anaheim Ducks Strength 10/10 Date 21/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Centrebet @ 1.85 Reasoning Anaheim in coming off to tonights game in a four game losing streak altough they haven't played that bad. Three of those games were on road from which two were resulted in OT (all four games where decided by a one goal difference). They have been good on home ice though winning seven out of ten games played outscoring the opponents 31-26. Special teams have been excellent with pp at 22.2% and pk at 81.9%. Hiller is the probable starter and he has been solid posting a .917save% during 17 games played. Edmonton is going trough a very tough spell right now and they are coming off in to tonights match with a six game losing streak. Their defense has totally fallen apart in many games as a result they've lost eight out of last ten games being outscored 46-24. The defensive problems have been especially visible when playing on road where they've lost eight out of ten games being outscored 47-28. Powerplay has been okey at 15.1% but pk has been dismal at 67.6%. The number one goalie Khabibulin has posted a .879save% with a 4.07GAA in 15 games played and as a result it's probable that the backup goalie Dubnyk will get the nod tonight. Dubnyk has posted a great .924save% although with a 2.93GAA during five games so far. Home advantage should be concidred huge here as Anaheim has been playing much better infront of their fans and on the other hand Edmonton has been regularly falling apart on road. Look for Anaheim to give loads of pressure with physical play to the shaky Oilers defense. This should lead to plenty of scoring chances and with Anaheims powerplay working so well they should have no problem converting against a poor pk when given the chance. Low odds on the home -1.5hc but the win withing regulation has enough juice in the price to give it a try.
  3. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Detroit Red Wings - Calgary Flames Selection Detroit Red Wings Strength 10/10 Date 21/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Expekt @ 1.85 Reasoning Detroit has been great especially on home ice winning eight out of 11 matches and outscoring their opponents 46-29. They are comign off a dissapointing home loss in ot against Minnesota (3-4) although dominating most of the gameplay. Special teams have been a strong suit with pp at 19.7% and pk at 85.3%. Howard is set to start on goal and he has been good on goal with few exceptions like last nights performance (.916save% during 13games). Calgary is in a dismal form losing seven out of last ten games played being outscored 33-37. On road they been able to keep most games tight with good offensive support although losing five of eight played. PP has been okey at 15.5% and pk has been solid at 84.0%. Kiprusoff is set to start on goal and he has been pretty stellar as usual posting a .907save% in16 games played (low numbers for him though). Look for Detroit to dominate the play and with Calgary having defensive problems while even play, it's bad news for the visitors. The home advantage should be concidered big and after last games dissapointment I believe the Red Wings will come on hard to prove a point infront of home fans. No value on -1.5 hc but Detroit to take the points withing regulation priced at 1.85 sounds reasonable concidering the matchup.
  4. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Atlanta Trashers - NY Islanders Selection Atlanta Trashers Strength 10/10 Date 21/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Expekt @ 1.90 Reasoning Atlanta hasn't been doing so great winning only three games of last ten matches but they are coming off an impressive 5-0 victory over Washington Capitals. On home ice they've been fairly hard to beat with 28 goals scored and 29 allowed but they've still lost six of ten played there. Powerplay has worked well at 22.3% but pk has been shaky at 77.1%. Pavelec is set to start on goal and he has been superb so far in 10gms played postin a .936save%. The Islanders have totally fallen apart after a good start to the season. They are coming to tonights match with a 12 game losing streak and they've been outscored 11-38 in the last ten games. Powerplay is in good numbers mostly due to excellent start (17.8%) and pk has faired well so far at 82.7%. DiPietro is set to start on goal and he has been shaky posting a .854save% during 7 games. Although both teams are in a poor forms Atlanta is clearly the better team of the two and they should be able to build on their last games great performance. No value on the -1.5 hc but Atlanta to take this one within regulation priced near evens sounds great to me.
  5. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Dallas Stars - Colorado Avalanche Selection Over 5.5 goals Strength 10/10 Date 20/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.80 Reasoning Dallas' has been a force on home ice of late winning all five latest games in a row outscoring opponents 21-10. Goalscoring hasn't been a problem all season so far but the shaky defense has gotten them in trouble in most games as they've allowed 49 goals in 17 matches. PP has been okey at 16.4% but pk has been poor at 76.4%. Lehtonen has been good on goal with a .910save% atlhough also posting 2.83GAA (Dallas allow loads of shots). Colorado is in great form winning seven of last ten matches outscoring their opponents 40-24. Their offense certainly hasn't been a problem but the playstyle has also let them to allowed loads of goals with 29goals allowed in just nine away games so far. PP has been great at 20.6% but pk has been lacking at 76.6%. Goalie Anderson has been good with a .913save% although posting a 2.88GAA. Both teams play offensive style of hockey and as a result play allow the opponents more good scoring chances with oddman rushes and such. The goalies have been good but as the numbers tell you they are facing to many shots per game to keep their GAA in respective range. Also notable that both teams pk has been awful so far and with the offensive talent on ice one should expect pp goals tonight. So pretty much everything points to goals in this matchup and while the price reflects that, it's still good enough to bite.
  6. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Carolina Hurricanes - Nashville Predators Selection Carolina Hurricanes (-1.5) (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 20/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 3.71 Reasoning Carolina has had some success on home ice of late winning four of last five games and in what fashion! In three of those games the Hurricanes have scored seven goals and limited the opponents to two goals or less, latest of which was a 7-1 win against Ottawa Senators. Their pp has faired okey at 15.4% but pk has been shaky at 74.3%. Ward is set to start on goal, he has posted a .912save% during 16 games so far. Nashville has also had success of late winning three games of last four althoug their defense continues to struggle: they've allowed 39 goals in last ten games played. The Predators' speacial teams have been poor so far with pp at 11.1% and pk at 79.1%. Both goalies Rinne and Lindback have played well with save% over .900 . Although Nahville has improved their form of late I rate Carolina's huge home success much higher. This game this suit the home teams' hot offense perfectly as the visitors' defense has been shaky all season. The visitors might also get on the board but it's just to hard to ignore the Hurricanes latests dominant performances on home ice. I think the Predators' shaky poor defense gets way to much respect in this much as -1.5 hc for home win is priced very high.
  7. Re: Finnish SM-league and Mestis - November Sport Ice Hockey Event Tappara - Ilves Selection Over 5.5 goals Strength 10/10 Date 20/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.02 Reasoning Tappara is trying to turn things around as they've won two latest games with fashion: 3-5 against Kärpät and 3-0 against TPS. On home ice they've been okey so far winning six of 11 games and outscoring opponents 27-23. Ilves has lost four of last seven games played mostly thanks to poor defending and goaltending. They've allowed atleast three goals in each of their last seven games (six times it's been actually atleast four goals). I watched their latest efforst and it's no wonder, they allow the opponents plenty of great scorng chances but also turn the puck quickly to get their own. This is a derby match and these teams have met already twice this season. Tappara won the first match 1-5 and Ilves took the points in the latest 5-0. Hard to say how will win but these matches have been high scoring affairs in the past few seasons and once again pretty much everything points to goals. Mostly it's Ilves' playstyle that will force the scoring chances for both ends but also expect Tappara to loosen up a bit, it's a heated rivalry match after all. Pinnacles offer on o5.5 priced over evens sounds great.
  8. Re: Finnish SM-league and Mestis - November Sport Ice Hockey Event Jokerit - Ã�ssät Selection Jokerit (-1.0] (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 20/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.43 Reasoning Jokerit haven't impressed so far but they've been pretty solid on home ice winning six games of nine played outscoring their opponents 31-27. Ässät has dropped to 3rd in the league thanks to their plummeting form. They've lost three out of last four games including the last two road games where they were outscored 8-2. I watched the last two Ässät games and I didn't like what I saw. Against Lukko they were totally useless and especially the bad defending caught my eye. In their latest efforst against Ilves they somewhat got their act together but the horrible defending continued. Something is not right with Ässät and if they continue to play like they have of late, they'll be findind themselves way down the league sooner than later. This play is mostly against Ässät's current form. they've been playing awful hockey of late. Now tonight against Jokerit one should expect the home team to have most of the control and give loads of pressure to the visitor's defense. Simply put if Ässät continues (which is probable after wathicng the last two games) to giftwrap goals for opponents they are in for a beat down tonight. Great price on -1.0 hc as in my opinion Ässät gets to much respect in this matchup.
  9. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Detroit Red Wings - Minnesota Wild Selection Detroit Red Wings (-1.5) (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 19/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Betsson @ 2.35 Reasoning Detroit Red wings have been great winning 12 games from 16 played so far. On home ice (as expected) they've been excellent winning eight games (one after regulation) from ten games played outscoring their opponents 43-25. They are currently riding a four game winning streak from which three latest wins have come with atleast two goal difference. Special teams have been good with pp at 19.4% and pk at 84.6%. Howard will start on goal (.921save%). Minnesota has the worst offense in the league with only 40 goals scored during 17games played (2.35goals per game) but they've been able to hold off opponents allowing only 39 goals (tied 1st). This is mostly to great defense ofcourse and you can't give to much credit to Backstrom who has held opponents to 1.91 goals per game with a .938%. Luckily he won't be starting tonight as Theodore will be guarding the net. He has played only three games so far with a 3.02GAA and a .909%. Detroit Red Wings has a clear upperhand in tonights match. They are pretty much a better team in every aspect of the game then the visitors and it's hard to see Wild's defensive-minded gamestyle working tonight. It tells alot that Minnesota is going with their backup goalie tonight (white flag anyone?). Odds are low but this should be a cake walk for the Red Wings.
  10. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Pittsburgh Penguins - Carolina Hurricanes Selection Pittsburgh Penguins o3.5 (inc. OT) Strength 10/10 Date 19/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.20 Reasoning Pittsburgh has done well of late winning four of last six games scoring atleast four goals in four of those games. Their pp is still struggling at 12.8%. Carolina has had a crazy rollercoaster-like run of late. They've won games with scores like 7-1 and 7-2 only to fall to loss on the next round by a similar score line. The defense has been a problem especially on road where they've allowed 40goals in ten games played. Carolinas pk has been awful at 75.00%. Backup goalie Peters is said to start with a .841save%. Pittsburgh should get many, many goals tonight. Their struggling pp is in rout to change sometime anyways with the talent they have and tonight against struggling Carolina pk the Penguins should have plenty of chances. The Hurricanes have been pretty much easy prey on road all season and now with Bernier on goal they just asking for an another beatdown (last two road games ended 7-2 and 7-4). The line is set high but I see the home side having no problem what so ever getting those four goals tongiht.
  11. Re: NHL 2010/2011 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Buffalo Sabres - LA Kings Selection Over 5.5 goals Strength 10/10 Date 19/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.10 Reasoning Buffalo has been struggling to get wins but they've improved their form of late winning four of last six games played (though all wins were after regulation). Their scoring is still lacking with only 26 goals scored in last ten games while allowing 36 goals. On home ice they haven't played as expected: they've lost seven out of nine games and have yet to record a win withing regulation. Visiting opponents have outscored Buffalo 30-20. Special teams have been a weak point with pp at 11.5% and pk at 77.3%. All three goalies have been okey but not great with Miller playing 13 games and Enroth and LaLime playing four games a piece. Miller (.905save%) is likely to start. LA has had a great start to the season winning 12 out of 17 games played, though eight of those wins have come on home ice where they've pretty much dominated every opponent. On road it's been an another story as they've split the eight games played getting outscored 23-25. Special teams have done well with pp at 16.7% and pk at 90.1%. The backup goalie Bernier is set to start tonight (.899%). I had a hard time predicting the winner so I opted for the o/u market. Buffalo has had it rough so far but they've been finding the net pretty well of late (sadly the opponents have found it just as well or better). The Kings offense on the other hand is flyin' high scoring atleast three goals in each of last five goals played and on road their defense ain't that good (5/8 times allowed atleast three goals). Also the fact that Bernier is starting for the Kings can't hurt the over and with Miller not certain (he played in the last three games) I'm glad to take the o5.5 with odds over evens.
  12. Re: Swedish Elitserien, HockeyAllsvenskan & division 1 07-30 November Sport Ice Hockey Event Modo - AIK Selection Over 5.0 goals Strength 10/10 Date 18/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.91 Reasoning Modo has had a dissapointing start to the season but their form shows some improvement as they have won four games in a row (three after regulation). During those four games Modo has scored atleast three goals in all of them but their opponents have been able to match that three times showing that the improved offensive numbers have come with a price. Notable that Modo has faired well on home ice so far winning six of nine games played (two after regulation) outscoring their opponents 33-24. They've scored atleast three goals in seven out of those nine games. AIK has one of the best forms in the league winning six straight games withing regulation. During that stretch they've outscored their opponents impressively 24-9 and more recently scoring atleast four goals in all of their last four games. These teams met once this season and AIK took the points with a 4-3 final score. I'm looking forward to an another scoring fest as both teams offenses are hot at the moment and the offensive play style tends to result in some pucks on your own net aswell. Weirdly Pinnacle doesn't seem to think there are many goals in this match as the limit is set at even 5.0 goals but all the more reason for me to bite with a little bit more cover.
  13. Re: Finnish SM-league and Mestis - November Sport Ice Hockey Event Ã�ssät - Ilves Selection Over 5.5 goals Strength 10/10 Date 18/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Bwin @ 1.85 Reasoning Ässät has been maybe the biggest surprise in the league so far as they are 2nd after playing 22 games. On home ice they've won nine out of 11 games played (three after regulation) outscoring their opponents 36-22. Ilves hasn't faired so well and they are 9th in the league so far, mostly due to their bad defense and shaky goaltending. That has been the case especially on road as they've allowed 45 goals in 11 away games though also scoring a nice amount of 31 goals. Ilves has allowed atleast four goals in all of their last six games including their latest outing when they lost 0-7 against bottom team TPS. These teams have already met twice this season. The first meeting was the same fixture and Ässät took a 4-2 win. That was followed by a 3-2ot win by Ilves. Ässät has been a force on home ice scoring 3.27 goals per match and they are favoured to take all the points in this one. Though you can't ignore the fact that Ilves has usually been able to rack up some tallies themselves and might be able to hold on. Still the visitors defense has been awful and the break didn't seem to do them any good. Against a great Ässät offense tonight Ilves is probably in for an another long night. The odds for home win are a bit short for my taste but as I reckon the visitors will get on the board tonight aswell it's very possbile that there will be no shortage of goals and I'll opt for the o5.5.
  14. Re: Finnish SM-league and Mestis - November Thanks mate :) Quite happy with the bets except the Ilves game, didn't see that coming but I guess TPS is really getting their act together. Onwards and upwards (hopefully) I suppose :tongue2
  15. Re: Finnish SM-league and Mestis - November Sport Ice Hockey Event HPK - Pelicans Selection HPK Strength 10/10 Date 16/11/2010 Bookmaker/Price Expekt @ 1.85 Reasoning Shaky defense has been HPK's biggest issue to date but on home ice they've been able to hold off opponents pretty well. They've won six games from ten played at home outscoring their opponents 39-28. Pelicans has been one of the best defensive teams at home but on road it's pretty much the opposite. They've lost all but one road game from 12 played (four after regulation) while being outscored 48-25. Pelicans hasn't scored a goal in their last three games. Should be pretty straight forward. The better team with the home advantage against a poor visiting team going through an awful offensive slump. HPK took the points in the seasons first meeting which ended 2-4.
