    NHL Playoff Probabilities (03/30/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    NHL Playoff Probabilities – Odds to win the Stanley Cup.



    With 13 days remaining in the regular season, there are 12 postseason spots up for grabs in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. A lot will be determined over the final weeks of the regular season.

    As teams make a playoff push, what could the Stanley Cup Playoffs look like?

    To set up our NHL Playoffs we use our rest of season projections. If the playoffs started today, Calgary would be in the postseason. However, in our simulations, according to our rest of season projections, the Flames are knocked out of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Kings.

    Top storylines:

    After reaching the Cup finals a year ago and coming up short, the Rangers are the most likely team to win the Stanley Cup. The Blueshirts are an incredibly balanced team ranking in the top three in offensive and defensive efficiency.

    People are sleeping on Tampa Bay. Bookmaker Bovada.lv gives the Bolts the eighth best odds (12/1) to capture the Cup. The Lightning earned wins over playoff teams Montreal, Detroit and Boston in the last two weeks. Tampa Bay is one of just three teams with double-digit odds to win the Cup.

    The defending champs are a likely wild card team in the West. Los Angeles would be a longshot to repeat with just a 3.4% chance to win it all. Of course the Kings were unlikely champions before the playoffs started last season too.

    The best of the rest: Ottawa has gone 15-3-2 in the last month. The Senators are tenth in our Power Rankings but miss out on the playoffs.

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
