This is a great time of year. College basketball is life and death every 15 minutes, the CHL playoffs are underway, the NHL playoff races are heating up. I'm not a guy who bets, but some of the sites devoted to betting and chances and odds are fascinating.
Take sportsclubstats.com: It's become an addiction. Every night the results have crazy impact on the race; as a for instance, tonight's NYR win over Columbus represents an enormous sway:
Just days ago, Toronto was about 75% and Detroit was in the 40%'s. And today? One win either way and it makes a massive difference. I've been watching playoff races and pennant races forever, but this sportsclubstats thing has me hooked. I swear to you there have been times in the last few weeks when I've looked forward to the update MORE than the games!
On another note, I picked St. Louis to beat Boston in the SC final back in the fall, and SC stats (click above) confirms it. This is going to be a fun ride this spring, check out the sight and follow along with me. And if you know any Leafs/Wings/Blue Jackets fans, pass it along. I can only imagine what I'd be like if my team was involved in a playoff race.
Maybe I'll get that chance one day.
