  • Western Rattlers

    Thanks for the heap o’ data! Lots to review over the next day or so. A debatable betting tip of mine: be cautious with Game #1 of the first round of the playoffs. The first game of the first round often neutralizes home ice advantage, may be irrelevant to determining the eventual series winner and can be quite unpredictable. Teams are just starting the playoffs and take time to adjust to different priorities and focusing so consistently on one other team. I don’t care who wins or loses Game #1, after that, the stronger teams will rise. The eventual first round loser may find winning Game #1 not so difficult.
