Re: NHL - January 2011 picks

EventLos Angeles Kings vs. Edmonton Oilers
Selectiondraw
Strength10/10
Date16/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceBet365 @ 4.50
ReasoningLos Angeles Kings were the best homer in nhl twenty days ago with record 13-3 at home, but they are in awful loosing strike at home, their last seven matches were at home and they won just one game and loose six. Kings falled with teams like Nashville, Toronto, St Louis. Kings didn't drew a game already ten matches in a row and they lost too many points. Kings recorded just one draw in last 15 matches and think this strike should stop soon. The Oilers have no draw in last six matches, they also lost many points but last match in the day before yesterday they defeated on the road San JOse Sharks 2-5 win, that was very good match for the Oilers. The last three matches between was at Staples Center in Los Angeles and all that three matches finished after overtime, two won by Oilers and one won by the Kings. It's interesting that total 6 of last 10 matches between are overtime decider and its too possible another overtime today.

Re: NHL - January 2011 picks

EventSan Jose Sharks - St.Louis Blues
Selectiondraw
Strength10/10
Date16/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceLadbrokes @ 4.33
ReasoningSan Jose Sharks are not in good fit, they are not the same team as previous two season, now they are struggeling out of playoff spot with six consecutive loss, five of that matches they played at home. The Blues after six consecutive loss finally they won last match at Kings with 1-3. San Jose have no draw match already 14 games, while St Louis got just one draw in last 14 matches they drew the game at Maple Leafs four matches back. Both team need of points, they didn't do so well and if they drew there will be a points for each team. It's interesting that Sharks won last four games between in regular time, but they are so weak now, while these two teams recorded 7 draw in last 14 matches this is 50% chance for overtime today and I gona back it up.

Re: NHL - January 2011 picks Montreal Canadiens at Buffalo Sabres - Canadiens to win @ 2.20 (Bet 365) With Montreal winning 5 of their last 6 games they now face the Sabres who have been in good form themselves lately but lost their last game to the New York Islanders. The Canadiens have managed to beat the Sabres the last four times they have met, three of them this season. Montreal won two road games 3-2 and 2-1. I think the Montreal defense is good at containing Buffalo's average offense and know how to beat them, and I think they can win this again. Simply put, Montreal are the better team.

EventNew York Islanders vs. Buffalo Sabres
SelectionNew York Islanders (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date23/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 4.30
ReasoningNY Islanders defeated Buffalo three times in a row, all that three matches they played this week. This game between will be third for five days. Islanders won the opening series match 5-3 at home just six days ago, after that they won another match on the road yesterday with 2-5 even easier than previous. Buffalo struggle in the bottom of the table just like Islanders but New York located team is in far better fit at the moment, they make it twice and nothing can stop to make it for the third time in last 6 days. Buffalo will play tonight fourth match in last five days, they will be exausted and this is Islanders chance. Islanders won four of last five matches at home versus this rival, they won two of last three at home with two goals spread so this should be another home win.

EventNew Jersey Devils vs. Florida Panthers
SelectionNew Jersey Devils (-1.5)
Strength10/10
Date23/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceGamebookers @ 3.25
ReasoningNew Jersey won five of last six matches, they defeated top three East conference teams like Flyers, Penguins and twice Tampa, it's interesting that all that five matches they won with two goals or more, but they loose in that strike exactly from this opponent Florida, but on the road 3-2OT win. On the other hand Flordia loose last three matches, they loose few matches on the road, also they loose the last encounter at Devils 2-0, so nothing good waits them tonight. If Devils repeat their game like with Flyers and Penguins this should be an easy win with two or more goals.

EventTampa Bay Lightning - Atlanta Thrashers
Selectiondraw
Strength10/10
Date23/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceBet365 @ 4.50
ReasoningThe last three Tampa matches finished after overtime, the last three Atlanta matches finished after overtime, also the last three matches between, played in a month back finished after overtime, so too many draw here and this may be an easy draw today. Tampa will play today fourth game in last five days, the last two were on the road so they will be exausted, while Atlanta will be with fresher legs, just two matches in last five days. Tampa are definetly better teamm but they struggle to win last to home matches in regular time 2-5 loss against Devils and a 3-2 OT win against Blue Jackets so this will be another tough match. Atlanta are trying to secure their playoff spot, they will not give up, while Tampa are trying ti secure southeast divison spot with just a point more than Capitals, both teems need of points, and a points here will be very good for these two teams.

Re: NHL - January 2011 picks

EventEdmonton Oilers - Nashville Predators
SelectionPredators (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date24/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceStan James @ 3.00
ReasoningNashville won 14 of last 16 matches against Edmonton, even more Predators won all eight seven matches played at Rexall Place. Predotrs won seven of these eight away matches with two goals or more. Now Oilers are with four consecutive loss, they loose 13 of last 15 matches. The last two Oilers matches were at home two heavy loss with two goals or more against Wild and Stars. On the other hand Nashville are in good winning strike, they won last two matches who were on the road with so big results 2-5 against Coyotes, they stopped 7-games winning Coyotes strike, the other match was even better 1-5 away win against Colorado just two days ago. Oilers are so weak while Predators are so strong, so everytinhg excpet Predators win with two goals or more will be a big surprise here.

EventVancouver Canucks - Dallas Stars
SelectionDallas Stars (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date25/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 5.00
ReasoningThe Stars won eight of last nine matches on the road, after eight consecutive win they were stopped in Calgary in the last match, but at all Stars also got 5 win in last six matches, while Canuck are in a four games loosing strike, they falled in last two matches at home and nothing good expekt tonight against, Richards, Neal, Ericsson. Stars are playing with fast counters, they loose last three with Canucks but it's a time for revenge and this should away win.

EventLos Angeles Kings vs. Boston Bruins
SelectionBoston Bruins (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date25/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 3.60
ReasoningThe Bruins fit goes better and better, they won last three away matches with two goals or more against Penguins, Hurricanes and Avalanche, their last match was in the West 2-6 win against Colorado. On the other hand Kings loose ten of last 13 games, including seven of last nine matches at home, that's so poor strike for the Kings who were with record 13-3 at home now it is 15-10. Boston are the best visitor in the East, now they are plaing in the West against so poor team in last month and this should be an easy one for the Bruins.

EventColorado Avalanche vs. St Louis Blues
SelectionAvalanche -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date25/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 3.45
ReasoningAvalanche loose last two home matches, but before hat they won against Canucks and Rew Wings, the two top placed teams in the West. Blues loose six of last seven away matches, they recorded just two win in last ten matches, their fit is so poor. Colorado won last five matches between all that with two goals or more, they are playing very strong against top placed teams and if they threw out their mental problems and play with poor team like Blues thinking they are strong this should be an easy one for the Avalanche.

EventCalgary Flames vs. Nashville Predators
SelectionCalgary Flames (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date25/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 3.35
ReasoningThe Flames won seven of last nine matches with Predators. Now Predators are better placed sitting on the fourth place, while Flames are in the bottom of the table in West conference, but Calgary won last two matches against two of top three placed teams in the West. They defeated Dallas 7-4 at home and stopped 8-matches Stars winning strike, just a day later they clinche a win against league leader Vanocuver 3-4 on the road, so the Flames are hot right now. Nashville are with three win away in a row, but Flames are just five points behind playoff with few matches in a hand this is their chance to make things better this season. If Calgary play like last two matches this should be their win and they know that, so I expekt tough match with a home win.

EventColumbus Blue Jackets vs. Anaheim Ducks
SelectionDucks (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceGamebookers @ 4.50
ReasoningDucks won this encounter 6-0 just ten days ago, they are showing excellent away fit taking two of last three matches, defeating Ottawa and Montreal, while Blujackets loose two of last four home matches. Ryan Getzlaf will be back for Ducks after one month out with an injury and this is good news for Ducka offence. Perry, Ryan, Sellane are in a great fit, while Hiller is the best goalie so far so this should be another Ducks win.

EventNew York Rangers vs. Florida Panthers
SelectionRangers (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PricePinnacle Sports @ 3.31
ReasoningRangers won last home match against fellow Florida placed Toronto with 7-0, they recorded three win in last four matches. Florida is in a four games loosing strike, the loos four of last five matches with Rangers includin three this season, as three of these four loss were with two goals or more. Rangers alomust fit all their injured players, they are in good fit trying to secure their playoff spot, while Panthers are playing for nothing in bad fit and this should be another home win.
EventPittsburgh Penguins - New York Islanders
SelectionPenguins (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceBwin @ 2.55
ReasoningPenguins won ten of last twelve matches with Islanders. Penguins are trying to reach Flyers for top East conference place nad Atlantic division, they won four of last five matches without Crosby, now Crosby is back he missed last seven matches and was best offence player at nhl before this injury. On the hand ISlanders dropped three of last matches all that with two goals or more, they are playing for nothing and didn't have Penguins motivation for a win. Islanders loose six of last seven matches at Penguins with two pucks or more and nothing better expekt them tonight.

EventOttawa Senators - Buffalo Sabres
SelectionSabres (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PricePinnacle Sports @ 3.31
ReasoningThe Senators loose five in a row, they loose twelve of last 13 matches, and their fit is so weak. Spezza offencive leader at Seantors is out with injury he miss much to Senators offence, the team struggle to score. On the other hand Sabres won three of last four matches all that win on the road, two of these matches were with two goals or more including with their division leader Bruins 2-4 away win just a week ago. Buffalo won last three matches at Scotiabank Place, including two this season, and two with two goals or more. Now Senators are so weak, while Buffalo have not so bad chances to make the playoffs and if they win this will a great chance trying to do it.

EventPhiladelphia Flyers - Montreal Canadiens
SelectionFlyers (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceBoylesports @ 2.70
ReasoningThe Flyers elliminated Canadiens in last season playoffs at East Conference finals, this season Flyers won two of three against Canadiens. The last four matches at Wells Fargo Center finished 3-2, 4-2, 6-0, 3-0 all that Flyers win. The Flyers won four of last matches against teams like Capitals, Blackhawks, Red Wings. On the other hand Montreal loose three of last four in a bad fit, allowing easy goals against Sabres, Ducks. If Flyers win today they will take NHL lead againt, this is too possible to happen after Pronger is back after injury, they got so strong offence like Giroux, Briere, Carter, Richards this seems to be easy one for the Flyers.

EventTampa Bay Lightning vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
SelectionTampa Bay (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceBoylesports @ 2.55
ReasoningTampa started 12 matches home series with an incredible 7-1 win against Trashers who defeated them twice this season. The Lightning showed incredible offence fit with Stamkos, Lecavallie, st Louis, Malone ahead of their attack they are unstoppable if these guys have a good day. Tampa won five of last six matches, while Toronto loose five of last six matches. The last two Maple Leafs away matches finished 6-4, 7-0 loss against Hurricanes and Rangers. Tampa defeated twice of two matches Toronto this season and if they show tha last match home fit this will be so easy bet for me.

EventChicago Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild
SelectionWild (-1.00) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 4.50
ReasoningThe Wild won seven of last ten away matches, incluind six of them with two or more goals. The Wild are in incredible away fit, theyt defeated with handicap Penguins 0-4, Bruins 1-4, Flames 0-6, they almoust reach playoff spot after trailling 7 points and more. On the other hand Balckhawks loose last home matchs 1-4 they are not the same team like last season when they won Stanley Cup, they are struggle to score, while their goaltender Turco is not so good like Niemi was. This season Balckhawks won 1-3 the one encounter between and now it's a time for revenge. If Wild use their fast counters successful this seems to be another win on the road.

EventPhoenix Coyotes - Edmonton Oilers
SelectionOilers
Strength10/10
Date26/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceCentrebet @ 3.85
ReasoningOilers loose last five matches, they also loose five matches against Coyotes, but now Coyotes aren't so strong as they were last month. Phoenix loose last three home matches with big goal difference agasint Sharks, Predators and Kings, they got some injuries and this seems to be a tough encounter. Edmonton loose so many matches I think it's not a far the day when they will take any match, maybe this will happen today. It's not so bad like it seems, Oilers are playing with fast counters even at home but their forwards missed lot of good opportunities to score situations like 2 alone with opponent goalie, three on one, kind of that. I hope today they will be more passioned and will use well their chances to score, they have nothing to loose sitting on the bottom of the table, while Coyotes are in poor fit and this is their chance to take this match.

EventAtlanta Thrashers vs. Washington Capitals
SelectionCapitals (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date27/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 3.35
ReasoningTrashers are in so weak fit, they loose last four matches at home recording one of their biggest loss ever 3-9 against not so strong team like Toronto. Trashers loose eight of last ten matches at all, they allowed so many and easy goals, but failled to scored. On the other hand Capitas are doing so well in last few matches, taking last two on the road, also they recodrded six win of last eight matches. Semin is probable to start today if he plays with Ovechkin ahead Trashers will have so many problems in their deffence.

ReasoningBoston won five of last seven matches, more of them with results like 6-0, 7-0 their offence is doing better and better. Panthers lost four in row before last night win against Rangers, but Panthers loose five of last six matches against the Bruins including three loss of three matches this season. Florida seems will be out of playoffs so early in the season they know that, while Boston is going better, they will try to win their division at least, that's why this game should be win.

EventNew York Islanders vs. Carolina Hurricanes
SelectionCarolina (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date27/01/2011
Bookmaker/PriceVictor Chandler @ 3.13
ReasoningCarolina won two of last three matches with big goal spread, they won all three matches against Islanders this season 7-2, 1-3, 4-1, that were so easy matches about this team. Islanders loose four of last five matches including all three at home, they contunie to be so weak team sitting at the bottom of the overall table. Islanders don't like to play with Hurricanes, they have no chances to make the playoffs, while Carolina after trailling 10 points behind playoff spot, now they are sitting with just three points behind but with a game in a hand, so if Carolina take this match they can attack playoff spot. Hurricanes got players like Staal who can decide every game and this should be their night, with this high motivation nothing can stop them.

ReasoningOilers won last night in last minute against Coyotes on the road, that was so nice win who stopped thier loosing strike, while Stars lost their last two matches 7-1 against Canucks, 7-4 against the Flmaes, they are not in so good fit just right now. Dallas won last four matches against Oilers but Oilers always can surprise anyone, I rembember Oilers defeated the champion Chicago twice on the road this season. These two played last week with 3-2 Stars home but Oilers take a 1-2 lead then. Oilers will bet on a fast counters that's their style, and if Stars underestimate this match, Oilers should stop another loosing strike tonight.

EventDetroit Red Wings vs. New Jersey Devils
SelectionDevils (-1.5) (Asian-handicap)
Strength10/10
Date27/01/2011
Bookmaker/Price5Dimes @ 5.00
ReasoningDetroit lost four of last six matches, including three of last four home matches, they are in a bad loosing strike with so many injuries, Holmstrom, Modano, Datsuk, Cleary all that good players are out of today's game. On the other hand Devils won last four matches all that won with two goals or more, two of them on the road taking an easy 1-3 win against league leader Flyers. Kovalchuk is unstopable in last four Devils matches he scored so many points and lead the team. NJ had so many injuries but more of these players are already back in the team and their success came. If Devils show the last week fit this should be another great match for this team.
