College Football Betting Preview: Ole Miss Rebels at Arkansas Razorbacks

11.21.2014     09:51 AM     Alatex Sports     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Alatex Sports blog entry.
Mississippi at Arkansas 
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS 
CRIS Opener:
Mississippi -3 O/U 45.5 
CRIS Current: Mississippi -3.5 O/U 45 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Mississippi -2 
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Under

Last week Arkansas was finally able to notch its first SEC win in two years with a shutout of LSU, 17-0. Arkansas improved to 5-5 with the win and now looks for back-to-back home wins with Ole Miss coming to town. The Rebels were off last week after dominating Presbyterian, 48-0, to end a two-game losing streak.

Ole Miss will be without its top offensive weapon, WR Laquan Treadwell, who broke his ankle on the Rebels’ last play against Auburn three weeks ago. His loss could be huge for the Rebel offense, which has struggled for the most part this year, especially against good defenses. Ole Miss rose to a top ranking last month based on its defense, but that side of the ball let Ole Miss down in its two losses to LSU and Auburn. LSU only scored 10 points, but they were able to control the game with their power running game. LSU ran for 264 yards on 55 carries and controlled the clock for 36 minutes.

Auburn was also able to dominate the line of scrimmage and run effectively against the Ole Miss defense as well. The Tigers were also able to cash in their possessions with touchdowns in the 35-31 win. Auburn finished with 253 yards rushing on 46 carries and held the ball for 32 minutes.

Those two games are cause for concern this week for Ole Miss on the road. Arkansas’ preferred method of moving the ball is with its power running game. The Hogs average 233 yards per game on 5.5 yards per carry. They will definitely have a chance to win this game if they can approach those numbers again this week, and the Ole Miss defense has shown vulnerability in that area as stated above.

The factor that lines up in Ole Miss’ favor is the scheduling spot. Ole Miss had a bye last week and an easy game two weeks ago against Presbyterian, so they should be healthy other than Treadwell and LB Denzel Nkemdiche, who is also out for the year. Throw in the fact that Arkansas is coming off the huge win over LSU and faces a likely letdown spot.

I am tempted to take Ole Miss here, but would prefer not to lay over a field goal. I just don’t trust the Rebels laying this much on the road against an Arkansas team that matches up well with their weaknesses.

Instead, the play here should be the under. Both teams managed 17 points in games against LSU and this game seems to be set up similarly as those two LSU games. Look for lots of running and Ole Miss should stiffen in the red zone as they did against LSU.

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at UCLA Bruins

11.21.2014     09:42 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Saturday, 5 pm PT -ABC 
CRIS Opener:
UCLA -3.5 O/U 60.5 
CRIS Current: UCLA -4 O/U 61.5 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: UCLA -2 
Ian Cameron’s Recommendation: Over

USC and UCLA both control their own destinies heading into Saturday’s pivotal showdown. UCLA needs two wins against USC and Stanford to to clinch the PAC-12 South while USC needs a win and a single Arizona State loss in the Sun Devils’ last two games to clinch.

Both defenses appear to be wearing down here in the month of November as a result of lack of depth. USC is still feeling the impact of the scholarship reductions having allowed 24+ points in five of their last six games. The only time they didn’t was against Washington State when Connor Halliday was injured in the first half.

UCLA’s offense started off the season sputtering but we’ve seen Brett Hundley and the Bruins offensive attack pick up their play during their current four-game winning streak. UCLA has scored 28+ points in six of their last seven games and all of those games totaled 400+ yards for the offense.

USC’s offense should be able to put up points as well and Cody Kessler will be highly motivated after being on the short end of a 35-14 decision last season. USC has scored 28 or more points in all but one PAC-12 contest this season and will get to face a UCLA defense that has underperformed much of the season. The Bruins defense was hailed by many as being one of the best stop units in the nation prior to the season but were clearly overrated. Even during UCLA’s current winning streak, they allowed 30, 37 and 34 points in three of those games they were forced to outscore the opposition.

With USC in revenge mode for last season’s debacle at the Coliseum I would lean slightly to the Trojans catching more than a FG. But I feel the better way to play this game is to look at the total. I expect an entertaining and high scoring affair and will play it over at the current number of 61.

College Football Betting Preview: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Nebraska Cornhuskers

11.21.2014     09:32 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Minnesota at Nebraska 
Saturday, 9am PT - ESPN 
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -10.5 O/U 56.5 
CRIS Current: Nebraska -10 O/U 56 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Nebraska -9 
Rob Veno’s Recommendation: Over

Pair of significant setbacks last week for each of these teams makes this a mental toughness test. Nebraska’s humiliating loss at Wisconsin where Badgers went on an incredible 56-7 run has many again questioning their defense and Bo Pelini. A convincing bounce back effort is mandatory for the Cornhuskers internally and also to try and restore their reputation outside the locker room.

Despite their home loss to Ohio State last Saturday, the Golden Gophers enter this contest with some confidence after losing control of the OSU game in the second half but then rallying to make things close at the end. It’s a long shot, but Minnesota could still win the Big Ten West by finishing with a victory here and one at Wisconsin. There’s plenty to play for on both sidelines in this one.    
The obvious fundamental key in this game is the Nebraska run defense which was tortured by Wisconsin’s ground assault led by Heisman candidate Melvin Gordon. The 581 rushing yards allowed is embarrassing and while Minnesota’s run game isn’t at the level of Wisconsin’s, it’s still what they’re predicated on (223.7 ypg). Over 70% of the Golden Gophers offensive plays this season have been runs which means Nebraska will have eight in the box looking to stop relentless David Cobb (135 ypg, 5.3 ypc) and force quarterback Mitch Leidner make plays. The Minnesota passing game is one dimensional with play action being their only way to throw effectively. The defensive game plan sounds simple enough but remember that just two weeks ago against a formidable Iowa run defense, Minnesota established the run and Leidner had his best statistical game of the season going 10-of-13 with four touchdowns and an astronomical QB rating of 267.63. 

Things should come much easier offensively for the Huskers who also like to run first with their star back Ameer Abdullah. His game breaking ability was negated last week by Wisconsin’s tough run defense and by the fact that Nebraska was in catch up mode the entire second half. The task figures to be easier in this spot since Minnesota ranks 55th nationally against the run as opposed to Wisconsin’s 5th rated unit. Facing a drop in class of rush defense will help Nebraska but more importantly, Ohio State again exposed Minnesota last week as a defense that does not handle the QB run in the read option. J.T. Barrett went wild last week gaining 189 yards on 11 carries (11.1 avg) and Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong possesses running ability (team’s 2nd leading rusher 58.8 ypg). In their only other contest versus a running threat at QB, TCU’s Trevonne Boykin tallied 92 yards (7.7 ypc) en-route to a 30-7 victory. Expect Nebraska to come at Minnesota with their running duo of Armstrong-Abdullah.

This game is a true test because the offenses contain strengths and weaponry that can exploit the other. Which defense can cover up their weaknesses the best? Inclination here is to believe Nebraska’s scheme and speed on offense will be more effective. Even though they’re a shade below the Ohio State and TCU level, the Cornhuskers still have the home run type capability in their read option and play action areas. NU will score their share but laying -10 just isn’t wise against a confident team like Minnesota. If the Gophers can avoid the turnovers that hurt them last week, they can stick around in this one. My power ratings made this game Nebraska -9 which is very tight to the current number so there’s not a lot of value. The weather looks to be fine in Lincoln Saturday afternoon leaving no concerns in that area. Minnesota is playing just their second road game in the last six weeks and fourth overall this season going 1-2 ats with a straight up loss at Illinois. Feel Nebraska is going to have a strong day on offense in this one but also feel that Jerry Kill will outmaneuver Pelini. With that mindset I’ll lean slightly toward over 56 in a game where Nebraska wins in the vicinity of 34-24.

College Football Betting Preview: Appalachian State Mountaineers at UL-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns

11.21.2014     08:57 AM     Paul Stone     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Paul Stone blog entry.
Appalachian State at UL-Lafayette 
Saturday, 11 am PT - ESPN3 
CRIS Opener:
UL-Lafayette -11 O/U 62.5 
CRIS Current: UL-Lafayette -9 O/U 63 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UL-Lafayette -14 
Paul Stone's Recommendation: UL-Lafayette

Saturday's Sun Belt showdown down on the Louisiana bayou Saturday afternoon features a pair of teams which struggled during the season's opening half, but have found their stride and are definitely playing their best football at the present.

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns (7-3 on the season, 6-0 in conference) entertain the Appalachian State Mountaineers (5-5, 4-2) Saturday in a matchup of high-powered offenses.

Both teams endured rough stretches earlier in their season before rebounding in conference action.

The Ragin' Cajuns survived a three-game September losing streak, stumbling badly to a trio of eventual bowl teams _ Louisiana Tech, Mississippi and Boise State _ by an average of 31 points. The Mountaineers, meanwhile, stood at 1-5 on Oct. 11 after falling at home to FCS entry Liberty, 55-48, in overtime.

The arrival of fall has produced better results for both of these slow starters which feature solid run games.

Louisiana-Lafayette, which has been one of the SBC's better programs in recent years, is now riding a six-game win streak, scoring 34 or more points in five of those victories.

Dual threat quarterback Terrance Broadway, a savvy veteran who began his collegiate career at the University of Houston, guides the Cajuns' offensive ship and is capable to wreaking havoc with both his arm and legs.

Elijah McGuire, a 5-11, 198-pound sophomore out of Houma, La., leads Louisiana-Lafayette in both rushing (127 carries for 960 yards) and receiving (35 receptions for 379 yards), while physical, downhill runner Alonzo Harris (591 rushing yards) and Broadway (554) contribute to the ground assault which averages 231 yards per game to rank No. 22 in the nation.

Since losing to Liberty, Appalachian State has reeled off four straight victories to even their overall record at 5-5.

Sophomore tailback Marcus Cox has been one of the primary reasons behind the Mountaineers' uprising. The 5-10, 200-pounder from Dacula, Ga. has carried the ball 194 times for 1,142 yards (5.9 yards per carry) this season and scored 15 touchdowns. During the Mountaineers' four-game winning streak, he has averaged 174 yards rushing, including outputs of 250 against Georgia State and 229 last week at Arkansas State.

During their respective streaks, Louisiana-Lafayette and Appalachian State have proven profitable to their backers. The Cajuns have covered all six games during their recent run, while the Mountaineers are 3-1 ATS during their mini-streak.

Although the home team is favored by 10 points at most books, some shops do have the game lined at -9/-9.5. I recommend shopping around and taking Louisiana-Lafayette.

Paul Stone 20* CFB Blowout Game of the Month [62% CFB 20*s YTD] $39 
Paul Stone has now hit 8 of his 13 20*s this season and he's looking to add to it with a HUGE blowout lined up for Saturday's college football card. Get in early with this 20* Top Shelf report for $39; guaranteed to cash or Paul's next top rated selection is free of charge.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Charlotte 49ers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

11.21.2014     09:10 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Charlotte vs. South Carolina -2.5 O/U 135 
Recommendation: Over

If you've watch any college basketball this season you'll notice a lot of low scores and game going under the total. The betting markets are pretty much blind betting every game under the total off of the opener. Any rightfully so as slow pace, lack of fouls, and zone defense seem to be the new trend, especially in power conference play. This however presents opportunities to play overs on cheaper prices when you can find games that project to play fast with so-so defenses. I think we have the with South Carolina and Charlotte. The 49ers are the quintessential over team: good offense, fast pace, average defense. We saw it yesterday when they produced 166 points in regulation against Penn State (Charlotte won 106-97 in 2OT). The Gamecocks meanwhile have played three relatively slow paced, low scoring games against North Florida, Baylor, and Cornell. North Florida runs but doesn't match up well vs. bigger more athletic teams. Baylor and Cornell tend to play slow. Frank Martin's team typically play at an above average pace and while projected to be a better defensive team they still grade out as average at this point. With the total sitting at 135 we don't need a track meet just a nice steady flow and a point per possession from both squads.

Because of the Snowpocalypse the took place in Buffalo, Sunday's game between the Bills and Dolphins has been canceled and moved to Monday night in Detroit.

With the game now shifted to a neutral venue the Bills are -2.5 with juice/-3 even money with a total of 41.5.

NFL Gambling Preview: Detroit Lions at New England Patriots

11.20.2014     02:14 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Detroit at New England 
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX 
CRIS Opener:
New England -6 O/U 48 
CRIS Current: New England -7 O/U 47.5 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: New England -9 
Teddy Covers’ Recommendation: Under

On the one hand, the Patriots are as hot as any team in the NFL right now, reeling off six straight wins since that Monday Night Football debacle at Kansas City, while going 5-1 ATS in the process.  That includes impressive blowouts over the likes of Denver, Indy and Cincinnati the three teams that would win the other three AFC Divisions if the season ended today.  The Pats currently are a full game better than any team in the conference, with tiebreaker wins against all of them. As of now, the road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro.

But on the other hand, the betting markets are telling us clearly that they don't believe that the Patriots are a truly elite ballclub.  This line opened in the -6.5 range, as opposed to at -7, and every time it has inched above -7 this week, wiseguy $$ has come in on Detroit, driving the pointspread back down to -7.   The Pats are a clear 'public' choice on Sunday, but there is no shortage of sharp action on the Lions plus the points.

What are the wiseguys seeing that the public is not? Well, the public loves good offense more than good defense, and Bill Belichick's ability to uniquely gameplan for each opponent has led to a run of seven consecutive New England Overs.  The Pats have hung 37+ five times in their last six ballgames, with point totals of 51, 43 and 42 in their last three ballgames, coming close to eclipsing those Overs by themselves.

Detroit's defense is a lot better than Indy's defense, particularly at the line of scrimmage.  Last week, New England rushes for 244 yards on national TV, turning unknown RB Jonas Gray into a four TD superstar in the course of a single evening.  For much of the game, the Patriots utilized six offensive linemen, simply pushing around the Colts front seven on defense.  That's not likely to happen against the Lions stout front, a unit that leads the NFL in both fewest rushing yards allowed per game and per attempt.  The onus here will be on Tom Brady's ability to throw the football against Detroit's fierce pass rush.

The Lions offense hasn't exactly lit the world on fire this season, a consistently underperforming unit.  The last time Detroit scored more than 24 points in a ballgame AND the last time everyone cashed an Over ticket at the closing number (some won, some lost and some pushed betting the Over in their game against New Orleans) came all the way back in Week 1, when they blew out the Giants on national TV on Monday Night Football.  The Pats high scoring offense has gotten plenty of headlines, but Detroit's stellar defensive front and extended run of Unders hasn't garnered much publicity at all.

The Lions managed only a pair of field goals last week in Arizona.  Calvin Johnson is a shell of himself these days, with less than 200 receiving yards and only a single TD since Week 3!  Leading rushers Joique Bell and Reggie Bush are both averaging only 3.6 yards per carry.  Matthew Stafford has looked jumpy and skittish in the pocket for extended stretches.  Look for defense to rule the day in Foxboro on Sunday.  Take the Under.

No, Kentucky would not be betting favorites over the Philadelphia 76ers

Seems like we go over this every year with people claiming that some awesome college team would crush some lousy pro team. In this instance, Kentucky, who has played all of three games -- one of which vs. Grand Canyon -- would beat the 0-11 Philadelphia 76ers outright. Thankfully someone contacted a real oddsmakers who priced Philly as 17-point mythical chalk.

NBA Handicapping: Cleveland Cavaliers still miles away defensively

11.19.2014     01:23 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Good article of Cleveland's defensive shortcomings thus far. The Cavs currently ranked tied for 25th in defensive efficiency (108.3). Tonight's opponent, San Antonio, ranks third at 96.0.

“I don’t think it’s something you learn on the fly,” James said Wednesday. “I think it’s something you work on every single day. You teach it, you preach it, you demand it. I didn’t come [into the NBA] as being a big defensive guy. I played defense and my high school coaches did preach it, and we knew in order to win, we had to defend. This is a different level.

“You have to raise the level of expectation,” Blatt said the other day, “and the level of accountability, and you have to make the whole greater than the sum of its parts. Sometimes if you’re not blessed with great individual defenders, your principles have to be that much stronger, and your helps and your court recognition have to be that much better. And that’s why it’s taken us longer in that area of the game than on the offensive end.”.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Austin Peay Governors at Samford Bulldogs

11.19.2014     10:09 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Austin Peay at Samford +3 
Recommendation: Samford

Very game effort by Samford last time out in a 63-56 loss at Pittsburgh. The Bulldogs amazingly outrebounded the Panthers but more importantly, as first-year head coach Scott Padgett, put forth a tremendous effort. This of course coming of the heels of an 80-40 loss at Purdue. Don't want to put too much stock in one performance but on the same token, Austin Peay has no business laying -3 on the highway. The Governors have been getting progressively worse under long-time head coach Dave Loos who hasn't had a winning season since 2011. Defensively, Austin Peay ranked 10th out of 12 in the OVC last year and it showed in a dismal 12-18, 6-10 record. As a favorite last season, APSU was a consistent moneyburner losing outright in close lined games against fellow bottom feeders Eastern Illinois and SIUE. They were also laying this exact same price at Samford last season and were blown out 85-63. Samford is a completely different team but the overall talent level for both of these squads is on equal footing. When it's bad vs. bad laying road chalk becomes a low percentage play as we take the generous +3.

College Football Betting Preview: Missouri Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers

Missouri at Tennessee 
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN 
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -3 O/U 47.5 
CRIS Current: Tennessee -3.5 O/U 47 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Missouri -0..5 
OTTO Sports’ Recommendation: Over

Tennessee looks to continues its strong play as it plays host to Missouri on Saturday. Winners of back-to-back games, the Vols (5-5) are knocking at the door of bowl eligibility. The Tigers meanwhile quietly find themselves in position to reach the SEC Championship with a game lead over Georgia. Since getting shutout at home vs. the Bulldogs, the Mizzou has ripped off four straight including last week's upset win at Texas A&M.

Justin Worley's injury was actually a blessing in disguise with his inability to make plays with his feet causing major issues behind a weak offensive line. Joshua Dobbs has since stepped in and shown capable of escaping pressure and throwing the football. Butch Jones has shown growing confidence in Dobbs and it's allowed the Vols to play at a much faster pace. With Dobbs under center, UT has averaged nearly 85 plays per game and it has resulted in 95 points combined the last two weeks.

Missouri's defense is no doubt a step up in class compared to South Carolina and Kentucky. Their conference-only stats are right in line with that of Alabama. The schedule however comes up a little light having not played the Crimson Tide or Mississippi State and Auburn.

Offensively, the Tigers have really relied on their run game with 46, 45, and 49 rush attempts the last three weeks. Their overall body of work isn't all that impressive but with Tennessee suspending multiple key defenders, the opportunity to move the football and score points is there. Note that outside of last week's 16-point performance by Kentucky, the Vols had allowed 42, 34, and 34 points their previous three contests.

The total of this game is predicated on seasonal averages and not necessarily current form. Tack on UT's key defensive suspensions and we project enough offense for this game to creep into the mid-50's.

College Football Betting Preview: Louisville Cardinals at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Louisville at Notre Dame 
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - NBC 
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -4.5 O/U 54.5 
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -3.5 O/U 53 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Notre Dame -5.5 
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: See analysis

I've mentioned on multiple occasions that Louisville's defense, while certainly stout, has benefited greatly from a weak slate of opposing offenses and quarterbacks. The only truly potent offense and quarterback combo the Cardinals have faced is Florida State who racked up 42 points and 574 yards. From a total offense standpoint, at 28th nationally, Notre Dame will mark the "best" offense UL has faced to date. Most, including myself, would probably take the Seminoles' offense over the Irish but the point remains that unlike a majority of Louisville's opposition, Notre Dame has proven capable of moving the football.

But while moving the football hasn't been a problem, hanging on to it has. Turnovers have been the storyline of the season with Notre Dame coughing it up a whooping 23 times. Since posting a +8 margin the first three games of the season the Irish are -10 and haven't won the turnover battle in a single game; hence the mediocre 4-3 result. Everett Golson appears the be regressing rather than improving as teams are now sitting back and waiting for him to make mistakes. Some of the team's turnover woes could be considered unlucky but a lot of it is poor decision making and that could once again come into play against a Louisville squad that ranks 10th in the country with 25 takeaways.

Louisville's offense has struggled for much of the season due in part to injuries to starting quarterback Will Gardner and receiver DeVante Parker. With both on the field, the Cardinals are viable. But with Gardner out for the season with a knee injury and freshman Reggie Bonnafon at the helm, the offense is once again projected to struggle. They've had a week off to help better prepare Bonnafon but it's a downgrade after three straight games of solid offensive output.

Notre Dame can't seem to get out of its own way which makes them a tough sell against a well-coached and fundamentally sound squad. If able to play clean football, I see value with the short home price but in this circumstance I could only recommend a play at -3.

College Football Betting Preview: Northern Illinois Huskies at Ohio Bobcats

11.18.2014     01:37 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.

Northern Illinois at Ohio 
Tuesday, 5 pm PT - ESPNU 
CRIS Opener:
Northern Illinois -4 O/U 51 
CRIS Current: Northern Illinois -2.5 O/U 50.5 
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Northern Illinois

The Ohio Bobcats play host the Northern Illinois Huskies tonight on ESPNU. The Bobcat faithful will participate in a blackout at Peden Stadium at the team looks to become bowl eligible for the sixth straight year. The Huskies also have something at stake; a win this week and next week vs. Western Michigan will earn them a spot in the MAC Championship.

The Huskies have won 41 of their last 42 games when allowing 24 points or less; a stat that could come into play with the temperatures in Athens projected to be in the 20’s with a chance of snow flurries. The NIU offensive line, which features five players with 151 combined starts, has not allowed a sack in five games this season. They lead the MAC and are seventh in the country in sacks allowed, having allowed only eight in 10 games. The outside elements will likely favor NIU running back Cameron Stingily who has scored 10 touchdowns the last four games. NIU also leads the MAC and ranks 10th nationally in third down efficiency; 80-for-164 on third down opportunities for a 49% percent clip. An ability to run the football and move the chains is what you want in a cold weather environment

The Bobcats meanwhile feature a much more pedestrian attack that ranks 9th in the MAC in total offense and 8th on the ground; both stats based on league play only. And I'm not impressed with OU's body of work with conference wins over woeful Kent State, Buffalo, and Akron who once thought to be a contender has now dropped four straight. NIU had the lone hiccup against Central Michigan but has since won four straight.

The move is anti-NIU off a big win (Toledo) and Ohio rested and ready following a bye week. And while the Huskies are clearly down a tick from previous editions they are still a team that outscores and outgains MAC opponents on a regular basis. The same can't be said for Ohio who doesn't have a quality win to its name.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Florida Panthers at Los Angeles Kings

Florida at Los Angeles -185 O/U 5 
Recommendation: Under

Two of the biggest under teams in the NHL meet up tonight in LA as the Florida Panthers visit the Kings.  These teams have played their last five meetings under the total.  The Panthers have proven throughout the year that scoring goals consistently is a tough task but they also limit their opponents on opportunities.  Yes, Florida has been great offensively over its last four games, but the pace and matchup tonight against the Kings will send them back to reality.  The Panthers not respond well to teams that grind along the boards.  The Kings are the prototypical grind-it-out squad that beat you with depth and strength along the boards.  Los Angeles averages just 2.44 gpg and allowed only 2.11 gpg so don't expect the Kings to run over the Panthers either.  The return of Kopitar into the Kings lineup has helped on offensive end of the ice, but more importantly on the defensive end as well.  Having that big body presence in the lineup makes this defense even more formidable.  Both teams are relatively healthy so I expect a tight checking, low scoring affair.
