Pucking Hockey Predictions
Pucking Hockey has been handicapping hockey since 2010, having the documentation to back our records. I have been playing ice hockey since I was eight years. Along with studying and watching ice hockey nearly every day after school.
It takes a hockey player to completely understand hockey. You can look at stats, trends, line combinations, starting goalies – that’s only a 1/4 of the work when handicapping hockey.
Pucking Hockey is the best ice hockey handicapper that you will ever come across. Pucking hockey is an official NHL Skilled Hockey Handicapping Service since 2010. Providing today’s hockey predictions with true honest work and great customer service!
Though some folks (as with any sports service) had conjectures regarding Pucking Hockey, as to whether I am truly as legitimate as I say I am. I made a commitment to myself years ago with genuine devotion, with positive reviews all over the internet.
Quality not Quantity
Why is Pucking Hockey distinctly better than the others? We work very hard along with long hours, seven days a week. We do not slack off, there are NO DAYS OFF when it comes to this business.
Other services just sift through the games that very same day, putting up random suggestions. Their “job” barely entails careful observations or any scrupulous computations, they only pick money line favorites that are tremendously high in price, or decide to bet on their favorite teams. Or they most likely choose whatever the media jams down their throats. Which is always a big no, no.
Why Winning Percentages are not Important
It is a horrible, useless statistic. As Ted Nugent says, it is a “stranglehold,” on handicappers because scamdicappers want bettors to focus on winning percentages solely.
There’s nothing wrong with having a decent winning percentage. However, it does not reflect your skills. Nor does it reflect the true profit margin. Learn about Sports Betting vs Sports Investing here.
Winning Percentages or Profits, Which is Important?
Take a look at several handicappers across the internet. You will most likely find around 70% of them have high winning percentages. However, are they showing a profit margin?
A winning percentage is a direct function of the odds which you bet. It does not represent how skilled of a handicapper you are. Take the NHL for example. Much like baseball, money line odds go through the roof mostly every night.
It is easy to pick big money line favorites each night, and of course show a high winning percentage. However, lose a couple of those games, and you will find yourself in a hole.
Money Lines Example
Take the following five teams to win on the money line odds:
- Montreal Canadiens -180
- Ottawa Senators -180
- Edmonton Oilers -180
- Boston Bruins -180
- Anaheim Ducks -180
If you were to bet to win on all four teams, you would have to risk $180 to win $100. Do that five times, and you are risking a total of $900 to profit $500 if you win all four picks.
At the end of the night, you end up going 3-2. That is a winning percentage of 60%
However, What’s Your Profit Margin?
Let’s start with the three wins. That is a total of $300 profit. As for the two losses, a loss of $360 – You are now in the hole $60 but still showing a 60% winning percentage for the night in NHL picks.
Unique Way To Control the Urge To Gamble
I understand that we sell our NHL hockey picks to gamblers but we always try to teach those gamblers that this is an investment, not a get rich quick scheme. Not once have I ever told anyone that you could get rich off of sports gambling.
As a matter of fact, I do not like to call is gambling. I like to call it, Sports Investing.
What is sports investing you may ask?
Simple, you invest in sports games, and over the long haul you will show a monthly and seasonal profit. But it takes a lot of patience and a strict money management system that fits your bank roll.
Here’s the bottom line, and any legitimate sports handicapper will attest to this. You can make money starting out with a small bank roll, let’s say $300 or less. But, you will have to follow a very strict money management plan.
Money Management For Sports Investing
I am going to take my own investing amounts, and use them as examples, compared to a $500 bank roll.
$100 picks, you would invest $10
$500 picks, you would invest $25
$1,000 picks, you would invest $75
$5,000 picks, you would invest $100
As you can see, the investing amounts are not very high, and you will get the urge to gamble if you happen to have a losing night. I get it, I was there before, but it wasn’t until I figured out this simple method to stop the urge to gamble.
Find A Hobby To Control The Urge To Gamble
Besides watching sports when you have money on that particular game. You will get very stressed out, constantly checking your phone, the whole 9 yards. Find a hobby and use that hobby during the games. It can be anything from spending time with friends and family, or volunteering at your local pet shelter.
Think about it like this, if you’re paying a NHL hockey sports handicapping service, that has the documentation, and proof that they will make you money investing in NHL hockey picks, why stress over the games? Expect there will be losses, expect there to be wins, but you cannot gamble.
Now going back to money management now that you have a hobby during the hockey games. I used a $500 bank roll as an example above, it’s going to take a lot of patience, and most likely the whole hockey season to see a major income with that small of a bank roll.
On a normal week here at Pucking Hockey we have about 8-10 NHL picks per week. A few being top rated NHL hockey picks, and a few being small NHL hockey picks. With a $500 bank roll you will be looking at about a weekly investment of, $190. With about a return of about, $90.
It’s not that big of a profit but at least you made money.
What I am trying to say is, if you’re serious about making money investing in NHL hockey picks, you will need to have at least a $1,500 bank roll. With that size of a bank roll, you have a buffer to take losses, but still make money each month during the NHL hockey season.
But remember, you cannot gamble! Find a hobby, stick to that hobby and stay away from your phones and TV’s. Now, I am not saying don’t watch hockey all together. You can watch the games, but if you’re one of those people who get stressed easily, like myself, DO NOT watch the games. You will only want to chase your losses, and by the next day you won’t have any money left.
