I said this in another thread, but it really needs to be reiterated...
What a fucking pussy Luongo is. If you are him, you
have to DEMAND to get the start. Show some balls for once, instead of
pussing out in a big spot like usual...
I think Schneider is just as good, if not better. But WOW this is simply pathetic on Luongo's part. And please don't tell me he has a "back injury."
No I didn't bet on the Devils tonight but I have a pretty decent wager on them to win the Atlantic Division and obviously every point is key. With the way the standings are right now, the Rangers would need an ABSOLUTE MIRACLE to make the playoffs, so I really didn't feel bad rooting against them. If they had a realistic chance, I would surely root for them over my bet but they don't.
Watching this team over the years is frustrating to say the least. They NEVER EVER play with heart, ESPECIALLY when they are down at the end of the game, and ESPECIALLY vs the Devils.
Fast forward to tonight. I am rooting against them for once, and what happens? Drury ties it with 15 seconds left and they win in a shootout. This shit NEVER HAPPENS when I want them to win (every night besides tonight)
Go figure the one game this team decides to show some heart, is when I want them to lose.
Looking through the forum, it was tough to find a SINGLE person on Norway or Latvia. 99% was on Canada and Russia (and that is not exaggerating) I was on Russia so I followed along.
Tomorrow it seems like the same will hold true for everyone being on Finland and Sweeden. Every single person I have seen so far betting these games are on those two teams. (and deservedly so)
The question is, will the books adjust?
Don't get me wrong, the Kings have been playing some GREAT hockey, but I'm surprised to see -315 which is the highest I believe I've seen all season.
With that being said, the line probably has more to do with the books being tired of giving away free money betting against the Oilers on the road then anything else. The -220/230 have been replaced with 300's and up from here on out.
That game today REALLY sucked. How do you blow a 2-0 lead with 30 secs left in the 2nd period without even forcing OT? Amazing.
Anyways, I have 7.5 units on the Devils at even money to win the Atlantic. When I bet it, they were 10 pts or so up on the Pens. I calculate standings in terms of games over .500, NOT on pts at the time. (since games in hand can play a big role) Anyways, now they are only 5 up in terms of games over .500.
I can get Pens +200 to win the division, should I hedge a lil bit on this? 7.5 units is a big bet for me on this future bet as I usually bet .5 to 1.5 units per game.
Leaning towards putting 2.5 units to win 5 units on the Pens. What would you guys do?
