Anaheim +179 @ Detroit -195

Intro: Second seed Detroit hosts Anaheim who is currently 13th in the Western league. Both teams are 7-2-1 in the last 10. Detroit has owned the Ducks thus far this year winning the two games by a combined 7 goals. The Redwings are shooting for their 19th straight home win.

Systems: Detroit is favored by both systems which isn’t very surprising considering how much better statistically they are and at home.

Prediction: Detroit but price is to high for me to want to play.
Dallas +129 @ Buffalo -140

Intro: Both Dallas and Buffalo have had rough years with Dallas only in 9th in their conference while Buffalo is in 13th. Buffalo is riding a 2 game winning streak in the one meeting this season Dallas won 4-0.

Systems: Buffalo is favored by the neural network despite being behind statically in first period differential, goals against average, save percentage, shooting percentage and Face off %, all those stats carry a rather large weight in the math model which favors the Stars.

Prediction: Dallas but with Richard Bachman in net this is not a play.
Carolina +120 @ Colorado -130

Intro: Another look at two teams which have had less than ideal years with Carolina traveling West to Colorado. Carolina won 2-1 back on December thirds in the only other meeting on the year.

Systems: Colorado gets a slight edge in both systems.

Prediction: JSG has struggled when he’s faced Carolina hes 2-5-1 with a 3.28 GAA against them on his career. Given that I’m going to say Carolina pulls off the upset however not quiet enough for a play for me
Chicago +124 @ San Jose -134

Intro: Two middle of the pack teams who have been struggling as of late 3-5-2 (Chicago) visits 4-5-1 (San Jose) Chicago is currently winning the series to date as they have won the last two meetings with San Jose picking up the first win back in November.

Systems: Both pick San Jose to win this game.

Prediction: Though both model’s pick San Jose to win and I expect them to I don’t think its very cut and dry.
