NHL Preseason Friday
NHL Preseason YTD: 0-0 (Even)
Well it's probably not smart to bet preseason but I never once said I was smart. Been following every teams transactions from the start of the signing period to make sure I have a solid basis on each and every team. Preseason will be extremely wacky as new players will have to mesh and players will need to adjust to the new rules. It will be hard to get a read on teams at first but I think in preseason and early on in the regular season I think we'll be able to fine good value and make some good money on hockey. Best of luck to everyone!!!!!
1* Carolina Hurricanes (-150) Over Washington Capitals
This bet includes OT & Shootout. Carolina has made some subtle moves this off-season after losing stars Jeff O'Neill and Ron Francis. The Hurricanes went out and signed Cory Stillman, Ray Whitney, Martin Gerber (Expected to be #1 goalie) and Oleg Tverdosky to join the Hurricanes roster full of young stars such as Vrbata, Williams, Staal and Vasicek. For this home game Carolina is donating the money to the American Red Cross. The Capitals this season resemble an AHL team and not even a good one at that. They brought absolutely no one in with the exception of some fill in pieces. There big off season acquisition was signing there draft pick from a couple of years ago Alexander Ovchekin. Although he is a huge talent he won't be featured for there first two preseason games. One of the few decent signings for the Capitals Andrew Cassels was dealt a huge blow this past week as he was struck by a puck in the face and will miss most of training camp. Washington has brought alot of youngsters to training camp and alot are expected to feature tonight. Carolina is expected to put there top lines out tonight and in front of there own home crowd I think they'll be able to come through.
* Also thinking about taking Phoenix Over Minnesota later but right now I'm just going to stick to this one.
Good Luck to All!!!!
