Mise-au-jeu tricks?

Just wondering how you guys pick teams for mise-au-jeu.

I like to find out what teams are tired (back-to-back or 3-in-4 or 4-in-6) then evaluate their opposition (are they rested? are they any good?). Then I decide on the matchups and look at the goaltending and defense and injuries.

I usually do this and pick winners. I only pick ties when I go for the home run ticket.

I didn't do very well last season, but I strayed a lot from this system. I picked a random ticket on Saturday and won - my first play of the year). I think I only won a couple times all of last season though (though I only moved back in January).

How do you do it?

I don't.

I play with online sportsbooks where you can pick single games, with much better. Much more fun, much more profitable...

Just pick the opponents of every team I select. You're sure to win.

I just looked up online sportsbooks, as it's been something that has been interesting me lately. Can you tell me what the difference is between betting on the money, and the line? or whatever those are. I know how the over/under works, but the other things?

The money line is the bet on which team is going to win the game. Basically, you bet on whichever team you think is going to win the game. Examples for tomorrow's games:

Flyers 2.28 Rangers 1.725
Canucks 2.31 Wild 1.709
NYI 2.46 LAK 1.641

So if you put $1 on the Flyers and they win, you will get $2.28 back, for a net profit of $1.28. If you bet $1 on the Rangers, you will get $1.725 back and a net profit of $0.725.

The puck line is whether the team that is favoured will win by two goals or more.

Flyers +1.5 1.455
Rangers -1.5 3.00

If you bet on the Flyers and they win the game or lose by one goal at most, you win the bet. If you bet on the Rangers and they win by two goals or more, you win. But if they win by only one goal, you lose. It's like the spread in football or basketball. The team that is favoured will have the "-1.5", and it is often referred to as the puck line.

any sites you guys could give me that are trustworthy and you can bet on single games. I'm getting sick and tired of losing with the proline shootout wins don't count crap. Lost my bet for $130 2 days ago because of that.

Thanks.

I usually pick high odds on two teams plus a sure fire team that I'm almost certain will win. Winning bet comes at 15-25$ (on 2$), so you can lose 7 times and win 1 time and still come out even.

To me Total seems much easier than Mise-au-Jeu.. you only have two fields instead of three.. I played mise-au-jeu twice since the season started.. predicted all the games "right"; expet each time one of the winning team won in SO.

I know some guy who plays Total once a week... takes 4 games he feels can only go + or - (Brodeur vs Luongo, etc) .. and bets big dough. Seemed to work for him, but again.. it's loto.

Anyone ever heard of boxing games???
Example
pick five games (10 V, 15 H, 20 V, 25 H, 30 V)
10 TICKETS WITH 3 GAMES ON EACH
10 15 20
10 15 25
10 15 30
10 20 25
10 20 30
10 25 30
15 20 25
15 20 30
15 25 30
20 25 30

IF ALL THE GAMES ARE above 2.00 odds then you break even with 3 correct, with 4 or 5 you can make bigger money

email me if you have more questions

Ah, thanks. That's a good one.

I don't bet much or often, I was just curious. Too much money down the drain!

$3 bet to win $45.75:

GOOD: Pittsburgh comes back and Crosby scores with 4 seconds left for the win.
GOOD: Calgary scores with four minutes left to beat Ottawa.
GOOD: St.Louis scores two in the last 3 minutes to tie Boston.

BAD: St. Louis-Boston goes to shootout....I lose on the whole ticket....

(wamp wamp wamp)
