Carolina Hurricanes did a great game last night but they could not win it after all. It was so matched and we believed that they are capable of making the miracle and equalize but at the end Philadelphia Flyers won with 3-4. Today the NHL teams are resting and we have to stick to the European Hockey.
There are not so many games today but we can say that from the Russian KHL there is one good game which we will choose it for our daily prediction. The game is between Cherepovets and Medvescak Zagreb. Usually both teams are very matched right now but maybe Medvescak are one idea better at the moment. Moreover, their last game was played on 27th this month, while yesterday Cherepovets did a home game against Slovan Bratislava (lost with 3-1). Now second home game in a row for them, we are not quite sure that they will be fresh enough to play it on full powers.
Medvescak Zagreb are a good team but they are in a serie of 2 losses in a row. But both losses were from quality teams like CSKA Moscow and SKA St. Petersburg. Now in their next game against Cherepovets they must take the win. They will be more fresh and prepared for this game.
Very bad luck in the game from yesterday between the teams Bars Kazan and Amur Khabarovsk. It was closed game and very matched. The game finished with one goal win for Bars Kazan and we could say sorry about not predicted it for Amur with handicap.
Anyway, the odds were too big and it was normal not to be guessed, at least we tried and next time we can make success. For today, we are going against for the outsider, if we can say the away team outsiders. Medvescak Zagreb are going to be guests on Podolsk and the home team is little favourite for winning the game. Now we will see what is going to happen here but on these odds when the game is so matched we simply cannot go against the team of Zagreb. The last time (yesterday) it was not that successful but we have a good feeling for today.
Another good option for this game is over 4.5 goals, which was our last pick of Medvescak when they were playing against Dynamo Moscow. In that game Dynamo Moscow outclassed Medvescak with 5-1 and this should motivate the players of the Croatian team to perform better and possibly take the win. Moreover in the head to head games, they are having the advantage.
The KHL games are continuing and we are going to predict some more games this week. The NHL preseason games started but they are not so good right now and lots of surprises are happening there, so that we will stick to the Russian games only.
Dynamo Moscow are definitely the better team but they are not in a very good streak, while Medvescak Zagreb are in a serie of some great games. The only game they have lost in the past 5 games was the game against CSKA Moscow which was obvious and normal. Of course, most of the games were at home but the team from Zagreb is still very dangerous and even away from home they can manage to win.
Dynamo Moscow are mixing the games with good and bad. The last game they were completely outclassed by Dinamo Minsk. Now they are going to look for the win, but if they are playing like the last game, we hardly doubt in that. The odds for Medvescak are good but over 4.5 goals, which is the line seems better.
Today, there are not very good games from the Russian KHL, but there is still one game which makes us really good impression and it is the game between Tractor Chelyabinsk and Medvescak Zagreb.
Medvescak Zagreb are continuing with the away games as they were in one good shape, but recently they started losing game after game. Now in the five past games the team from Croatia is having just 1 win. This is not very good for them but they will soon or later make win which will flush them and they will start playing better. Moreover, now the team is playing only away games and they are feeling exhausted from the tough schedule.
Tractor Chelyabinsk are difficult team, especially when they are playing at home. At the moment the home team is in a serie of two wins in a row. We think that they will take another win but a better prediction for us is over 4.5 goals as the team from Zagreb is scoring and conceding lots of goals.
After the amazing win of Lada yesterday against the team of Podolsk, today we are going to make a little bit different prediction from the last few predictions. We are not going to go for final result winner, we will choose the over/under line, because we found a good value in it.
The game is between Avangard Omsk and Medvescak Zagreb from the Russian KHL. The Croatian team is making incredible season so far but the team from Omsk is also playing amazing as they are second in the Western Conference just after Yekaterinburg. Usually, Avangard Omsk must take this game easily as they are the better team and they are moreover playing at home but Medvescak Zagreb are solid as well and they have all the chances to surprise the home team.
Instead of final result winner we will go for over 4.5 goals as both teams are scoring usually lots of goals. We believe that this line is very small and it can be easily reached. In the past games we can see that 3 out of the 5 head to head games finished with 5+ goals. The chances look great and the odds are high.
Very unfortunate loss for HC Yugra last night and another wrong prediction for us, but we are not going to be so upset now about that game and we are going to predict another game from the KHL today.
The game we chose is between Medvescak Zagreb and Nizhny Novgorod. Actually we did some predictions of those teams in their past games. The team from Zagreb are playing incredible season so far as they have 3 wins from 3 games and they are on the second place in the KHL. This is something which no one expected because Medvescak is not a team which is dangerous or serious. But now it looks like that the team is with a huge potential and they have powers to make something significant this year.
Anyway, our prediction will go for Nizhny Novgorod, because they look solid team as well. It is true that they have lost their last game away from home with 7-4 from Slovan Bratislava, but they won against Jokerit and Dinamo Riga at home as well. The team is dangerous and serious and they can take this game in our opinion.
We stroke again with a great prediction about Cherepovets and Metallurg Magnitogorsk. Today we will did again a game from the Russian KHL as this time the game we are going to predict is between Bars Kazan and Medvescak Zagreb.
Last season the team from Zagreb represented pretty well in the KHL as they were very close to reach the playoffs. If they were not the last 4-5 losses at the end of the regular season, they could be in the top 8 of Russia. Anyway, it was in the past season, let’s write what happened so far. Bars Kazan had one tough game against Niznekamsk in the last round. They lost after over time while in their first game they won with 2-1 against Slovan Bratislava. Medvescak Zagreb did a 3-2 win against Lada away from home and now they are dreaming for another win.
But we think that they are not going to get it because Bars Kazan at home are one of the most dangerous teams, which can potentially stop anyone. The odds are not very high but they are still good to try this game on single. At home Bars Kazan do not have a loss from this opponent and in our opinion this winning streak will continue today.
