Also from last year
Frozen Solid Findings: (BYE WEEK RELATED)
Of the teams that had their BYES, they produced results of 15W & 5L in their Pre Bye game
( Bos/Mtl played each other in their shared pre bye game so it's like 14W & 4L = 78% winning trend here on a pre-bye play.)
Tonight the Dallas Stars are -117 & in Regulation time only -0.5 +147 & -1.5 +242 ( worth a small shot? YES!!~) vs T Bay in their PreBye week game.
Now the added kicker that I found with these Pre Bye (PB) Win games was that these same teams then proceeded to LOSE their return from a Bye
at a ratio of 8 Losses to 2 Wins ! Quite interesting how the pre bye win hurt teams' "hunger & drive" for their overly rested and rusted return.
Tonight Chicago returns at home from their bye week and play the Edmonton Oilers +127 !!
Tonight Nashville returns on the road from their bye and play the Minnesota Wild -155 !!
Tonight Tampa Bay returns on the road from their bye week at Dallas and we all know the story here ! DALLAS -117 !!
Tonight Washington returns on the road from their bye week at Detroit and tough to stop a power house so...will just watch and weep?
Tonight Montreal returns at home from their bye week vs Winni with a new/old coach behind their bench. Mtl had lost their pre bye game
so they don't fall under the trend of losing on return. I like'em anyhow.
Tonight Los Angeles is playing their 2nd return game and figuring them to get their 2 of 3 wins so will watch & resist temptation as I prefer Fla +odds.
- To date - teams winning their pre bye games managed to go 2-1 over the span at a clip of 6 x (2-1) & 3 x (1-2).
Tonight LAK is playing their 2nd rtn game and could use that 2nd win. See above
Tomorrow Boston returns from their Bye week - plan for their loss !
Tomorrow is Columbus' pre bye night ! A top team to have on your side.
- Another finding was that from the teams that Won their prebye game, in both their return games we see a repeat Under Total result in the 2nd game
when there was an under result in the 1st return game.... 1st Under & then 2nd Under = 3W - 0L = so far 100%.
Watch Washington total for tmrw night Feb 19 as they go B2B with tonight
- There were 5 Overs from winning PB teams in their 1st game back which resulted in 4 Overs and 1 Under in the 2nd return game ! This is so far at an 80% Win rate.
**One team who had an Over in their 1st game back is Los Angeles and they are playing their 2nd game tonight vs Florida, who I was taking OVER regardless
since injured Huberdeau and Barkov rtnd ( mentioned in my "Bimmer on Ice" thread last week ). So give it a look. Fla has had an over and last night a push since then.
Milk'em till the well runs dry.
- Now from the grouping of teams that lost their pre bye game, in their 1st game return their were 2 unders and 1 over. In the 2nd game Under was 1&1 and the Over
had the same results so 1&0. Worth keeping an eye as combined with the earlier mentioned winning PB teams the Over match in return games 1 & 2 record rises to 5&1 or 83.3%!
Pre Bye related Feb 18th:
Dallas - PRE BYE GAME - in PLAY including OT -117
Fla / Los Angeles OVER 5 - in PLAY Over 5 -119
Edmonton ( ref Chicago's return from bye ) +127
Minnesota ( ref Nashville return from bye ) -155

I'm done for now
