RE: NHL over/under: How many points will key players score in 2010-11?

leave a comment »

In Puck Daddy‘s latest blog post, he offers up the over/under on the scoring of individual players. This stems from an earlier post of the official sports book odds on the 2010-11 NHL season courtesy of Bodog.

I think Puck Daddy is the man, so I decided to try my hand at predicting whether or not these players will be over or under their point predictions by the end of the season. Come playoff time, I will review my picks and see how I did.

And there it is. It was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be. I have a lot of “overs” which I think will bury my predictions under 50%, but we’ll have to wait and see.

I think it would be fun if other bloggers (WordPress, Bleacher Report, etc) made some over/under predictions and we can compare at the end of the year.
