Tonight's game (Oct. 25) Minnesota at Winnipeg, my numbers said it was likely to stay Under the 5.5. However, checking the total at the end of the first period -- 4 goals??? -- two more in the first minute of the second -- WTF ??? Turns out Minnesota is using their backup goalie who hasn't played (practice doesn't count) in a week and a half. Seems he spent all his free time watching porn, has eye strain and couldn't see or stop anything coming his way.
Jeez, I should have checked that. Also had Winnipeg as a small favorite but that information could have inspired more confidence to take them. No, wouldn't automatically bet against the team starting the backup goalie, but would definitely NOT bet on them. Generally, I would pass on the Side and lean to the Over in those games.
For those who might think that the Covers contests are not real, my hoodie arrived yesterday.
I placed 20th in the NFL regular season contest using a very conventional system of ranking teams based on yards allowed. I didn't even begin until Week 7 or 8 of the season and had a couple very lucky weeks. Covers sent me an email on the Monday Jan 2 after the regular season closed to confirm my address. I responded immediately and my hoodie arrived yesterday Feb 3.
It's 80 percent cotton 20 polyester and size XL like I requested. Overall I'm very pleased. A picture
