    2014 Stanley Cup Odds (07/30/13)

    By John Ewing
    Following NHL free agency we look at a few teams that have seen their odds to win the 2014 Stanley Cup improve. Odds courtesy of

    Chicago Blackhawks: 15/2 to 6/1
    The Blackhawks wisely avoided overpaying Viktor Stalberg (Nashville) and Ray Emery (Philadelphia) letting them skate in free agency. With the cap space they saved they were able to resign center Michal Handzus, winger Bryan Bickell, and defensemen Michal Rozsival. The Blackhawks have positioned themselves to defend their title.
    Los Angeles Kings: 14/1 to 12/1
    Less is more, or at least that is the philosophy the Kings took toward free agency. Los Angeles essential kept their roster intact with the exceptions of Jonathan Bernier and Rob Scuderi signing elsewhere. With the success the Kings have had in the last two years general manager Dean Lombardi has decided to stand pat and enter the 2013-14 season with the same core.
    Philadelphia Flyers: 33/1 to 28/1
    The Flyers took care of their own giving their captain Claude Giroux an eight-year extension. Philadelphia signed Ray Emery, 17-1 with a 1.94 GAA last season, to challenge for the starting goalie role. The Flyers also added size and scoring on offense with the signing of Vincent Lecavalier.
    Edmonton Oilers: 33/1 to 20/1
    The Oilers set out to improve their defense in free agency. First, they signed Andrew Ference, a former alternate captain for the Bruins, a great penalty killer. Edmonton then signed Boyd Gordon, known for gritty defense but also strong faceoff skills. With the addition of seventh overall pick Darnell Nurse the Oilers are looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2006.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
