    NHL Playoff Odds

    Last Updated: 11/7/2014 at 9:48 AM ET
    The Predictalator uses current rosters and strength-of-schedule and pace-adjusted team and player stats, to play, one possession at a time, every game 50,000 times before it's actually played. For this analysis, we are tracking how likely a team is to make it to any level of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Each Stanley Cup bracket is played individually, with the team that wins the series in each unique instance advancing. The percentages in the table below represent the team's likelihood of advancing to that round.

    The Boston Bruins, who won the President's Cup with the most points in the East, are the favorites to win the Cup at 25.3% and are followed by the Anaheim Ducks (13.2%) and Chicago Blackhawks (12.9%) out of the Western Conference. Chicago, a three seed in the new playoff format (that includes two pods of seeded teams in each conference, is the only team expected pull off a first round upset by seed (over second seeded St. Louis Blues, who faded down the stretch), though Tampa Bay vs. Montreal and San Jose vs. Los Angeles are likely to go the distance in the first round.

    NHL Stanley Cup Odds (based on 2014 NHL Playoffs played 50,000 times):

    02/20/2017 Highlight: Using our ResultsFinder tool, it's evident that top plays in college hoops continue to produce at a solid clip this season. On the season, our simulations have produced 189 college basketball betting opportunities with a 60%+ confidence level, and those games have gone 102-87 (54.0%) ATS. A $50 bettor would have earned $669 in profits using our recommended wager sizes.

    The Predictalator hit a rough patch in the NBA towards the end of the January, despite receiving some outstanding closing line value in that span. Short-term variance got the best of the simulations, but NBA is back on track with a 5-2 (71.4%) ATS run on the seven "normal" or better sides posted in February thus far. Seven games is a small sample size, but closing line value continues to be at an all-time high, which is a good sign going forwards.

    The consistently profitable NHL season continues for the Predictalator as well, with the simulations having produced a stellar 56-37 (60.2%) record ($191 in earnings) on all NHL money line and puck line plays in February. For the season, the Predictalator is hitting at a 55.4% clip on all playable MLs and PLs, and a whopping 63.8% on all "normal" or better MLs or PLs. A $50 bettor would have accrued $521 playing all normal+ plays, and $601 playing all playable plays.
