Another good day on Thurs going 2-0 in the Nhl. With Nashville and Edmonton winning easily.

A very light schedule today. I would suspect an nhl play later and most likely nothing in the hoops unless we get some big line moves.


Since its a light day i want to give my thoughts on the multitude of power ratings that are out there on every sport.

For the most part except for a rare…very rare …few they are worthless in attempting to pick the right side of a game. I know this is most likely heresy to say this but that has been my experience. When I used them they kept me away from more winners then they gave me.

Now dont take my word for this even though most likely you have experienced the above yourself. There is a web site that tracks many of the power ratings in most sports and keeps records back 10 years or so on how they performed. You might be very surprised at the results.

Take a look and let me know if you come up with any different conclusions then I have:)

I will update later if anything develops.

    It is a very unimpressive record, but in their defense they are putting a rating on every game, it would be interesting to see what the results would be if you only played a game where the line was say, 3 points different than their rating.
