Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Sweden IceHockey Elitserien HC Linkopings - Djurgardens - Linkopings hasnt won in the last 10 against Djurgardens in the regular time. - Linkopings lost all three games this season with Djurgardens. - In this fixture the away team has won only twice from past 27 encounters. * Home team coming after 7-2 win three days ago over Modo. I believe they wont get swept by Djurgardens in the regular season. My call: Match Winner Linkopings 9/10 1.65 Betsson * including any overtime and shootouts that may be played.

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Denmark IceHockey 19/01/2012 Herning vs Rodovre 20:30 CET Today in Denmark will be another round. Herning on its ice arena «Kvik Hockey Arena» will take in an important match against Rodovre. Face to face meetings: 06.12.11 Rodovre - Herning 4:3 (1:1, 1:0, 2:2) 29.10.11 Rodovre - Herning 2:1 (0:1, 2:0, 0:0) 04.10.11 Rodovre - Herning 2:7 (1:1, 0:5, 1:1) 22.03.11 Herning - Rodovre 4:0 (2:0, 0:0, 2:0) 18.03.11 Rodovre - Herning 0:0 (0:0, 0:0, 0:0) 15.03.11 Herning - Rodovre 4:0 (2:0, 1:0, 1:0) 13.03.11 Rodovre - Herning 1:5 (0:2, 1:2, 0:1) 11.03.11 Herning - Rodovre 3:3 (1:1, 0:1, 2:1) 25.01.11 Herning - Rodovre 6:2 (1:1, 2:0, 3:1) 28.12.10 Herning - Rodovre 6:2 (2:1, 3:1, 1:0) .. ... stats show that a clear advantage to Herning, but the last 2 games this season for two consecutive Herning lost 1:2 and 3:4 to Rodovre. There was another game between the clubs in the curent championship, was stronger Herning, winning 7-2 with confidence. Last game Herning: 13.01.12 Herning - Esbjerg 2:5 (0:1, 1:2, 1:2) 09.01.12 Copenhagen - Herning 1:1 (0:0, 0:1, 1:0) 07.01.12 Herning - Herlev 3:2 (1:2, 1:0, 1:0) 05.01.12 Aalborg - Herning 4-2 (2: 2, 1:0, 1:0) 30.12.11 Herning - Esbjerg 2:5 (1:0, 1:3, 0:2) Last game Rodovre: 13.01. 12 Rodovre - Fredrikshavn 3:0 (0:0, 3:0, 0:0) 05.01.12 Copenhagen - Rodovre 2:4 (2:1, 0:2, 0:1) 30.12. 11 Rodovre - Herlev 3:1 (1:0, 1:0, 1:1) 28.12.11 Aalborg - Rodovre 4:2 (0:0, 2:1, 2:1) 22.12. 11 Rodovre - Esbjerg 1:0 (0:0, 0:0, 1:0) After the World Youth Championship in Canada back in the almost all the leaders of the club: striker Joachim Linnet (13 games, 3 goals) , which, however, returned from injurya, the defender Patrick Madsen (27 games, 2 assists), and of the main striking force of the club this season - the brothers Oliver Björkstrand (27 games, 12 goals + 9 assists) and Patrick Björkstrand (27 games, 6 goals + 20 assists) and also forward Thomas Spelling (24 games, 14 goals + 13 assists). And once Herning won two long-awaited victories in a row in the championship after 4 defeats in row, 3-2 at home Herlev and away 2-1 (OT) in Copenhagen, but in the last game on his «Kvik Hockey Arena "Herning again gave victory to Esbjerg 2:5. Even those two victories over Herlev and Copenhagen turned out heavy and labored, though, and returned to the composition of almost all the leaders of the club. It's time to gain speed and show a strong and effective hockey, since there are not many games, and the struggle for place "under the sun" in Denmark tightens with each round. Reaxed can only be Sonderiyske, which from the 1st place, no one will move, as the gap between the 1st and 2nd places already makes the whole ocean - 20 points. 2nd place with 56 points is Odense, on the 3rd place is situated Herning with 53 points, which comes on the heels of just Rodovre also with 53 points in the asset. A 2nd place, incidentally, has the advantage of the ice right up to the finals of the playoffs. Note that in the frame of the gate Herning returned to their main goalkeeper Lubos Pisar (27 games, 92.29% rescued shots, averaging 2.19 per game puck skipped), who has played in the match against Copenhagen. Not bad joined the team striker Lasse Lassen, whose career had no luck in the Swedish club, Borås. Lasse Lassen, returning to his homeland, in 6 games played already earned 7 points (6 games, 3 goals + 4 assists). But still in the hospital the number of U.S. forward Marty Guerin (16 games, 13 goals + 6 assists), which has aggravated an old injury, forwards Bjørn Østergaard (3 games, 1 transfer), and, as we have noted, Joachim Linnet (13 games , 3 goals) and defender Rasmus Knudsen (18 games). Were added and the Finnish forward Antti Hölli (30 games, 12 goals + 20 assists). In addition, by mutual agreement has been terminated a contract with the Finnish defender Herning Tero Konttinen, which has not been able to start playing as a team and show his level. As Rodovre, the club is suitable for the match against Herning in good high spirits, having won in the past three championship games: at home to a modest Herlev 3:1 and analyzed in recent games Fredrikshavn 3-0, as well as on the road, in principle, the derby in Copenhagen 4-2. Yes, we do not beg Rodovre victories, but the same Herlev, Copenhagen and Fredrikshavn - it's not like Herning, whose composition is much stronger. Of the injured in Rodovre is the lack of striker Mathias Bau (27 games, 3 goals + 7 assists) and an injured hand club's top scorer Jannik Karvinen (30 games, 25 games + 14 assists), who today will be missed "bulls". I believe that Herning to Rodovre stronger in all the lines, it remains only to prove it on the ice. Still, fans of Herning long endure such lessions, as in a cup of Denmark, will not, and too much of in recent games. Today, hockey players should be fully rehabilitated for all the latest injury and properly tune in to this match, because in case of loss of points could seriously hang 2nd place in the championship. Yep, to trust in Herning this season "is terrible and hard" , but even with such a composition Herning today must seek victory. Herning hockey players should be aware that they are current champions in Denmark. Will put on for the victory of Herning for a very decent price. Play: Herning 1x2 [Regular Time] 7/10 1.70 Gamebookers P.S. : I love you Anastasia! :drums

Event Kaufbeuren - Bietigheim
Selection Kaufbeuren
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Unibet @ 1.70
Reasoning Although Kaufbeuren lost two of their last three games in the league (both as visitors) the team is still doing really well in their home games. They have ten wins (one after over time) and six defeats at their arena so far this season, but also is on a run of six wins in their last seven home games. Kaufbeuren have only four defeats in their last fifteen games, which is great improvement compared to their form in the first half of the season. The team is on fifth place at the moment, but just three points behind the top three, so a win today will move them even closer to the leaders. Bietigheim is on last position and are seven points behind the next team in front of them, which is quite a margin. The team is playing really bad and have only one win from their last ten games in the league and just eight (one after over time) since the start of the season (played 32 games so far). Kaufbeuren will try to get back quickly on the winning ways after some slip ups in the last rounds. The team is playing really well at home and is scoring a lot of goals at their arena, so today against the worst team in the division they should have no problems to take the three points. The two teams played twice so far this season. Kaufbeuren won as visitors 7:5, but before that lost their home game against this opponent (3:4 after over time).

Event Ravensburg - Bremerhaven
Selection Over 6.0
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 1.83
Reasoning Ravensburg is not doing so well recently, losing five of their last six games and also their last four games in a row. The team is finding it hard to score goals in the last games and today against other team in bad form they could make up for the previous results. The average goals scored in Ravensburg games is 6.78 and the team have 23 overs and nine unders. I'm going for over number fifteen in a row for Bremerhaven. The team continue to play really bad and have no win in regular time in their last eight games. This bad run left the team on seventh position at this moment, while they were fighting for the second spot just a month ago. But even with this bad results Bremerhaven is still making over after over. They have fourteen overs in a row now and just seven unders in the whole season (from 32 games). Well, as I said previously I won't stop betting on over 5.5 goals in the Bremerhaven games until the end of the season. The odds are not that high, but are good enough, especially if they are winning one fourteen times in a row now. The two teams have played twice so far this season and in both games the result was over 5.5 goals. Bremerhaven and Ravensburg also have five overs in their last five meetings.

Event Poprad - Trencin
Selection Poprad
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Sportingbet @ 1.70
Reasoning All five games in Slovakia today are with clear favorite, but after some thoughts I finally decided to take Poprad. The team is in good form and won six of their last nine games in the league. They are currently on fourth place, but not so much behind the second placed Slovan. Poprad also won eight of their last ten home games and the last three in a row. If they want to challenge the top three teams before the end of the regular season they should take all those games against the teams that are behind them in the table (especially the home one). Trencin is on six place right now, but they are eight points clear of the ninth (top eight get a place for the playoffs at the end of the regular season). The team is not in good form and have only four wins (one after over time) in their last ten games. Trencin won only one of their last four games away from home. Poprad have three wins and one defeat against Trencin this season and eleven of the last fourteen games in the last three seasons.

Event VSV - Znojmo
Selection VSV
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Boylesports @ 1.62
Reasoning VSV is fighting to keep their seventh place before the end of the regular season. This is the last round and according to the rules the teams from places 1-6 and those from 7-11 will be seperated into two different groups for another intermidiate round before the start of the playoffs. For the second group 7-11 the situation is that team number 7 will get three bonus points before the start of the intermidiate round, number 8 will get 2 and number nine - 1. So VSV is currenlty seventh, a points ahead of Vienna Capitals and a win tonight against Znojmo will guarantee them a maximum bonus points. The team won four of their last five games (three of the wins were after over time) and this allowed them to move up in the table at the last moment. Znojmo in other hand will for sure finish at number ten in the table and won't get a bonus points at the start of the intermidiate round, so the team won't be fully motivated. VSV have played at home against Znojmo once so far this season and they won comfortably with 5:0.

Event Karpat - Blues
Selection Karpat
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Ladbrokes @ 1.75
Reasoning Karpat is in great form and the team is now really close to the top six (top six qualify automatically for the playoffs at the end of the season). The team won seven of their last nine games (one win came after over time) and the moral and the self-confidence of the players right now is really high. Karpat is currently just three points behind the sixth Jyp, but the team also have two games in hand. They won seven of their last ten games in the league, which is a quite good achievement for them. Blues is just one position after Karpat, but the team is actually seven points and a game more than their opponent today. They have only six wins in their last eighteen games in the league and now the difference between them and the top six places is very big. Blues have only two wins (both after over time) in their last ten away games and they are the thid worst away team in the league right now. Karpat is not playing so good against Blues over the years, but the team won the last two games (one at home and one as visitors) against this opponent and today will make them three in a row.

Event Nitra - Skalica
Selection Skalica
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Betsafe @ 1.85
Reasoning Skalica should win this one, even when they are not in a very good form recently. The team finally got back on the winning ways (8:2 at home against Trencin). Before this victory Skalica had five straight defeats (four of them away from home), form with which they not only lost their first place of the table, but are third and just two points ahead of the fourth team (Poprad). Skalica have ten wins and eleven defeats away from home, but the team lost their last four games as visitors in a row and today against the worst team in the division they have the chance to finally stop this awful run. Nitra is without any question the worst team in the division. They are last in the ranking and also eighteen points behind the next team in the table. Nitra lost sixteen of their last nineteen games in the league and one of those three wins in this period was exactly against Skalica (4:3 after over time). Skalica have won four of the last five away games against this opponent, so I can easily see another victory for them tonight.

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Another game for Medvecsak in Zagreb Arena. No need to repest myself about the difference beetween the home ice in Dom Sportova and this one. Medvescak have been playing hot and cold lately, but despite that have managed to win 5 from last 7 games, with the total going 5-2 under in the same span. They are safe for the play offs and some rotations will be made by coach Raymond, the same as in last few games. Kristan will be starting in goal, unless there is a last minute change of plan, and his sub 2 GAA means a tough time for the visitors today. Red bull are also safe for the play offs and will be using more of their fringe players in the last few games of regular season. They have been an overs machine lately with 6 straight and 8 from last 10 going over. Both teams posted big wins in the last round, with Medvescak winning 5-2 vs Olimpija while Salzburg won 6-3 vs Graz. I expect a let down effect and bit more cautious play from both teams today. Both teams are hitting 50% o/u home/aways on a larger timeframe and the under is 3-2 when Medvesak are in the Arena so some clear value for me on the under here. Pick: U 5.5 @ 2.25 bet365

Event Wolfsgurg Grizzlies - Krefeld Pinguine
Selection Wolfsgurg Grizzlies -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 20/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Betway @ 2.40
Reasoning Today I chose a match from the german DEL where we find the "other" Penguins, actually the Penguine of Krefeld going on road to EisArena Wolfsburg to take on the Wolfsburg Grizzlies for the 3rd time this season. In the first two meetings both teams won their home game (KREFELD 4-0, WOLFSBURG 10-2). There is a huge consistancy between the Krefeld of this season and two years ago when they were the revelation of the league, now ranking just 12th with 47 points after 37 games played, coming after a win over Augsburg at home, 5-1. On the other side Wolfsburg has been stable along recent years, now being a team of the upper half of the league, ranking 5th with 63 points with the best defense and 3rd best ofense. Last round they found themselves down against a team of Eisbaren who have been hit by many injuries to lose it in the end by 5-6 and snap a good 4-game winning streak. If we talk of form, recent form, position in the league table Wolfsburg comes on top, the only way Krefeld could pose som threat is that in their last road game (being a little better then on home ice so far) they beat the Adler Mannheim who is 2nd in the league by 3-1 and they got 1 win in 2 meetings against the Grizzlies so far this season (at home but still). I won`t bother with those little advantage of the Pinguine and I will head straight with a clear win for Wolfsburg who is doing a much better job on home ice (then when on road), 12-1-0-5 record, 63:30 goals, here also with the first defense and 3rd best offense, winning their last 4 straight at EisArena Wolfsburg (last 3 in a row by 2 or more goals). Actually as an interesting stat, the Wolfsburg everytime they did win on home ice in regular time 9 times out of 12 were by 2 or more goals. I will make the same prediction here, for the Wolfsburg Grizzlies to win it by 2 or more goals.

Event Olomouc - Litomerice
Selection Olomouc -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 21/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 1.95
Reasoning Today I chose a match from the 2nd ice hockey league of the Czech Republic at Zimní stadion Olomouc where the HC Olomouc will be hosting the Litomerice team. This will be their 4th meeting of the season with so far the Olomouc leading the series by 2-1 overall (last 2 in a row). Olomouc belongs to the upper side of the league table, more exactly 3rd with 80 points, 23-3-5-9 record and 135:90 goals, coming from a loss last tima at Kadan 3-7 which ended a 3-game winning streak. On the other side we have Litomerice a team that currently is ranked 8th, last spot for the playoff, with 53 points, 14-4-3-19 record, snapped a 2-game winning streak last time at home with a win over the Hradek Kralove by 4-2. Despite the fact that Litomerice, a modest team who 4 rounds ago beat Chomutov at home, 5-4 they show not that convincing stats when on road, just 6 wins in 20 games ( from which 12 losses were in regular time) with 42:64 goals, one of the weekest ofense and deffense in that category. In this meeting I will coung on the very strong force of Olomouc on home ice who is very close competing with the best in the league (Usti and Chomutov), now 3rd best with 15-1-3-1 record, 75:27 goals, that is one of the best offense and by far the best defense. So I see a better hosting team winning this as they are on a 7-game winnings streak on home ice. Litomerice has lost 4 of their last 5 games so I think a win by 2 or more goals for Olomouc is good for this match.

Event Plzen - Kometa Brno
Selection Plzen -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 22/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 2.20
Reasoning Today I propose a match from the czech Extraliga where the Plzen "Indians" will be hosting a team against they had surprisingly limited success this season despite the difference in the standings, Kometa Brno. Plzen is now ranking 2nd in the league, 21-6-6-8 record, getting just their 3rd losing streak of the season after in the last round they gave it up on road to the Vitkovice Steel, 3-5. On the other side Brno is only 10th with 13-5-4-18, big difference and despite that they have managed to win 3 of their last 4, last time at home against Trinec by 1-0. Like I said Plzen had limited success this season losing the only meeting here in Plzen to Kometa by a surprising 1-6. Although Kometa has now won 3 out of the last 4, they still remain one of the weekest in the league in road games, 4-2-2-12 facing none other than the best team in the league in home games Plzen who has the best offense by far in this category. My guess will be that in this match Plzen could win it by 2 or more goals and at the same time get payback and snap out of this losing streak. Plzen is +34 in goals on home ice while Brno is -20 when on road so I think there is a good chance.

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Teams that are set next to each other on the table, played 4 h2hs this season, both won once. But odds for Kladno, despite their bad away record are pretty good, as home team misses quite few of players - important ones: Kempny and Ostril will maybe be on bench, Dlouhy out, Tomas Svoboda, Vašík and Jaroslav Svoboda alll out. That means 4 very imp. players out for Brno, especailly Svobodas are key for them, important for offensive play. At Kladno, defence is clicking well and goalie Chabera is doing excellentlyOdds are value, danger is the fct that Kladno is crap awayKladno +0.5 @ 1.95 bet365

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Sport Ice Hockey Event Sonderjylland - Rodovre Selection Sonderjylland -1.5 (Asian-handicap) Strength 10/10 Date 24/01/2012 Bookmaker/Price Sportingbet @ 1.85 Reasoning With not much time left in the regular season both teams look pretty confortable at the moment meeting now for the 5th time. In the previous four Sonderjylland won 3 times (4-1 and 5-3 at home, 5-2 on road), all in regular time, while Rodovre won once after overtime at home. Despite the fact that both are in the top3 (Soderjylland 1st and Rodovre 3rd) the difference is pretty big, with Sonderjylland being the dominant team in the danish AL-Bank Ligaen for the past 4 years in the regular season and even winning the playoff twice. Sonderjylland is now running on a 8-game winning streak, last time beating the Hvidovre, 3-2OT at home. The situation in the meetings between these two haven`t changed for quite some time now, Sonderjylland winning 15 of the last 18. Counting the fact that (not surprisingly) Sonderjylland is the best in the league in home games with 12-2-0-2 record (that means they lost only 2 times in 16 games played) best offense and best defense in that category, I think they have a good chance of winning it clearly against Rodovre who despite the recent 4-game winning streak, they will have to play much more to get anything out of this. Win by 2 or more goals Sonderjylland is my pick.

Event Linkopings - Lulea
Selection Linkopings -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 25/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 3.20
Reasoning Today in the swedish Elitserien the Lulea will head to Cloetta Center to take on the Linkopings for the 4th time this season after winning 2 of the first 3. Lulea is now ranked 2nd in the league with 71 points, coming from a win, 2nd win in a row, at home against the Frolunda, 2-1. Today they will miss players like Sami Sandell, Mattias Persson, Niclas Wallin, Chris and Cam Abbott. On the other side Linkopings has started something, now ranking 11th in the league with 56 points, on a 3-game winning streak, last time beating the Farjestads on road 3-2. The only one missing in this one from Linkopings will be Mickael Hakanson. Counting the fact the current injuries from both teams I believe that Lulea won`t have that easy mission in this road game against Linkopings who have now won 3 of their last 4 at Cloetta Center, all by 2 or more goals. Linkopings really need points and I think they can profit from the opponents lack of players and win it clearly. Win by 2 or more goals Linkopings is my pick.

Event AIK - Djurgardens
Selection AIK -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 26/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Sportingbet @ 3.75
Reasoning In this round of the swedish Elitserien I chose the match at Hovet Arena where the AIK will be hosting the Djurgardens. This will be the 4th meeting of the season between the two with Djurgardens leading by 2-1 after the first three. AIK is aiming for their 2nd straight year in a row in the playoffs after they came back in the Elitserien last season, now ranking 6th with 59 points, coming from a 2nd straight loss, on road against Timra, 0-1OT. For this match the hosting team will miss Sandberg, Steen and Karlsson. On the other side Djurgardens is having a modest season, 10th in the league right now with 58 points with the worst defense in the league, coming from just their 2nd win in their last 5 games, at home against Farjestads, 2-1OT. For this road game the Djurgardens won`t have players like Tjarnqvust and Zibanejad. One thing is certain the Djurgardens made most of their points on home ice (36 out of 58), where they won their last 2 in a row, but now they will head on road where they are none other then penultimate, 3-5-3-8, 44:65 and last but not least they are on a 3-game losing streak where they were outscored 11-1, that adding to their weekest defense that they have in that category. In the first match here at Hovet, AIK were crushing the Djurgardens by a score of 5-0 and I believe that there is a good chance that that could happen now as well. AIK who are better so far in home games with +14 in goals and won 5 of their last 6 (the last 4 of them by 2 or more goals) will take on Djurgardens who are at their worst so far on road with -21 goals, losing their last 3 in a row, so I think the hosts in this one could win it by 2 or more goals.

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Znojmo - Jesenice It's hard to say much about this game. Jesenice have been in trouble the whole season and it's gotten wore recently. after losing many players to money problems, they lost their captain and starting goalie a few days ago. Even with them in squad I would take Znojmo here, like this it should be a blowout. Znojmo have not played well through the season but are are stil figting for a play off spot as they are just 3 points behind and looked good in the win over VSV. This is more of a be against Jesenice than anything else. They are just ina an appaling position on the ice and off it. They are wishing for the end of the season to come as soon as possible and for me have dobtful motivation here. Znojmo will try to score as early possible to put the pressure on the guests as they can defend but once the game opens have no chances at all. Pick: Znojmo -2.5 @ 2.11 pinnacle

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 DEL 19:30 Adler Mannheim - Straubing Tigers Straubing Tigers ML @ 3.00 paddy power 3pts I have to try this one, Straubing Tigers are one of the hottest teams in the leauge for a while now, in last 7 games lost just one time, they score minimum 3 goals in last 4 games. Mannheim allowed 8 in last 3 home games what is alomst 3 per game. Mannheim has a complete squad for this game but squad that beacuse of injries didnt play toghter for a while!

Re: EUROPEAN ICE HOCKEY - JAN 2012 Olimpija - Medvescak This is the other match that cought my eye today. Olimpija are far from their highs from the start of the season. Their form has been pretty bad of late and are coming into this match with a few problems. They have been having trouble both scoring and keeping the puck out of their net and have lost the last 2 games with a 2-8 goal difference. Medvescak are not in their best form either, but are playing far better hockey than the hosts. After losing the last game in the Zagreb Arena where they did not show much, they went on the road and got the wictory i a wild one 5 to 4. With the above mentioned problems for the Slovenian team and the fact they have big problems when facing Medvescak over the last 3 seasons, I see some nice value on the Zagreb team as this is a 45-55 match IMO. Pick: Medvescak -0.5 @ 2.35 bwin

Event Dinamo Riga - CSKA Moscow
Selection Dinamo Riga -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 28/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Gamebookers @ 2.90
Reasoning Today I have a match from the KHL where CSKA Moscow will head to Arena Riga to meet the local team, the Dinamo Riga. This will be the 4th meeting of the two this season with Riga leading 2-1 after the first two. Both teams are close in the Western Conference, Dinamo 7th with 62 points and CSKA 8th with 59. A thing is certain so far this season, Riga has done most of the damage when on road and CSKA was more constant where they were on home ice and what I can tell to make the difference in this one is that Dinamo hasn`t lost this season on home ice against them. Last meeting between Dinamo and CSKA at Arena Riga finished 5-3 in favor of the home side. To straighten somewhat this pick, Dinamo Riga has now won 2 straight at home while CSKA has lost 4 of their last 5 road games. My pick in this one will be for the Dinamo Riga to win it by 2 or more goals against CSKA who has one of the weekest defense in the league on road.

Event Ambri Piotta - Fribourg
Selection Fribourg -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 28/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 2.62
Reasoning Ambri Piotta for the past few season aren`t anything more then a "surprise" team and another example of that we can find in their previous round when they beat Zug (way way better team overall) by 3-2OT, but not that suprising in a way because some teams have a certain weekness against some teams and it looks like this is one of the times because the EVZ have now lost 4 of the 6 meetings against the Ambri Piotta tis season. This time the situation will be different Fribourg is the revelation of this season, now ranking 3rd, 3 points less then the leader Zug, coming from their 2nd loss, at home against Davos, 1-4. In the first three meetings between these two there was only one winner, Fribourg (twice at home and once on road) and I wouldn`t be surprised if they would win it now as well with Ambri losing their last 4 straight home games, adding of course to the weekest record that they allready have in that category. I will pick Fribourg who I think found a good match to end the losing streak and counting the fact that Ambri has lost their last 3 by 2 or more goals, I believe that is possible here as well. Win by 2 or more Fribourg.

Event Ingolstadt ERC - Hamburg Freezers
Selection Ingolstadt ERC -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 29/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Betsson @ 2.75
Reasoning The Hamburg Freezers will head to Saturn Arena to meet the Ingolstadt ERC for the 3rd time this seasona after losing the first two. This match doesn`t really find the Freezers in a good "mood", coming from their 4th loss in a row, last time in Dusseldorf against the Metro Stars, 0-4. On the other side Ingolstad is being constant, now ranking 2nd in the league 3 points shy of the leader Eisbaren Berling, snapping a 3-game winning streak last time with a loss in Munchen, 2-3OT. Last time these two met here at Saturn Arena the ERC were winning 4-0 and now they will bring a 8-game winning streak on home ice against Hamburg who is one of the weekest team in the league in road games, 6-1-2-9 record and -21 in goals, losing their last 3 in a row, and that is 3 shutouts, outscored 12 to 0. My pick is for Ingolstadt ERC to win it by 2 or more goals.

Event Brynas - Linkopings
Selection Brynas -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 30/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Paddy Power @ 2.87
Reasoning Even though both teams have quality roster when it comes down to results Brynas is doing a much better job this season, now 3rd in the league, 1 point shy of the 1st place currently occupied by Skelleftea AIK. Previous three enocunters this season all gone Linkopings way but this time I will bet on Brynas who is the 2nd best team in the league in home games, 11-2-1-6, with a 5-game winning streak. Linkoping despite the 4 wins in the last 5 games push for the playoffs they are still very week when on foreign ground, 2nd worst to be exact, with -15 in goals, losing 3 of their last 4. I will pick Brynas for a clear win today.

Event AIK - Vaxjo Lakers
Selection AIK -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 31/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Bet365 @ 2.80
Reasoning The Vaxjo Lakers will head to Hovet Arena to take on the AIK for the 4th time this season and hope for the 3 points in this meeting after winning 2 of the first 3. Faith isn`t really on the Lakers side, to be exact they are on a run for a playoff spot (9th), 1 points shy of 8th position (last for the playoff), now occupied by MODO but they have now lost 3 of their last 4 and will be coming with a very long list of missing players: Nils Andersson, Tom Linder, Marcus Johansson, Robin Dahse, Jan Urbas, Mike Iggulden and Johan Andersson. On the other side AIK is 7th right now but still needing to secure its place, coming from an important win in the Stockholm derby against Djurgarden, 4-3OT and so snapping a 2-game losing streak. For this home game the AIK will have Daniel Bang, Christian Sandberg and David Lilliestrom-Karlsson out. Despite the fact that Vaxjo got 5 points (out of 8) in the first 3 meetings of the season against AIK this doesn`t look that bright for them, coming to this one with 2 straight road losses where they have been outscored 10-4. I will pick AIK for a clear win in this one counting the fact that they are hot lately at Hovet where they have won 5 of the last 6 (4 of them by 2 or more goals) and of course the roster difficulties of the Lakers.

Event Kosice - Skalica
Selection 1
Strength 10/10
Date 31/01/2012
Bookmaker/Price Betsson @ 1.75
Reasoning Today in the slovakian Slovnaft Extraliga the leader HC Kosice will be hosting Skalica at Steel Aréna. In the first four meetings of the season between the two, both won two times, once at home and once on road. This will be an interesting match-up between the 1st place Kosice and 3rd place Skalica, two teams that score many goals per game, actually the 1st and 2nd offense in the league at the moment. Kosice is coming after their 11th win of their last 12 games, on road at Martin by 3-2. On the other side Skalica is rounding some wins after an ugly 5-game losing streak, last time at home against modest Zilina, 6-3, 3rd win of their last 5 games. One thing is certain with Skalica, best offense in the league but when it comes to road games they aren`t that efficient, actually they are on a bad streak right now losing their last 6 in a row. My pick in this match will be for Kosice to win counting the fact that they are 3rd best in the league in home games, winning 5 of their last 6, having to face a team that last time they beat 9-3 (on road), Skalica.
