Deconstructing the Needs of NHL Teams

Jan 20, 2015

Toronto is in a period of lamentation.  Loyal fans desperate for post season success were complaining about their Maple Leafs.  They said that this team was too vulnerable due to their high scoring style.  What was needed was a more disciplined approach and then success will come.  Well, Toronto is now not only bad but boring as well.  They laid an egg at home losing to Carolina 4-1.  Apex Hockey Betting is coming to the rescue.  We will look at some franchises and discern what they need for success.  If we can not solve them then at least we can…

NHL Corsi

Dangers of MoneyLine Every Game and Corsi Part Two

In the first part of the series, we were examining the metric Corsi percentage and how it could be used for hockey wagering.  The stats were looked at and it was given that the San Jose Sharks were vastly underperforming in their record against the perceived possession that their hockey team was getting.  The pronouncement was made that this team would be the one to watch.  They had two games this week.  Let us look at what happened in each and the unit result if we bet on each and equally.

He just could not pick a winner, and this was nothing out of the ordinary, as he simply did not have a firm grasp of handicapping principles. With a certain desperation, he had a conversation with a friend as he explained his woes. The friend, trying to be helpful, suggested that maybe the desperate loser could take…

Money Lines and Puck Lines in Hockey

There are a few different ways to bet on hockey, and we will go over them. The one that will be easiest for the general public to understand is the MONEY LINE, which essentially allows the bettor to place a wager on the outright winner of a game, with a price on the favorite and a price on the underdog. You will find these prices expressed in odds that are referred to as “American,” and not fractional. So as the hockey bettor, you are analyzing the “value” that appears in the line on either side, as you perceive it. Here…
