A better bet

by Mad Max

Although there is no snow or Ice in Las Vegas there are still plenty of people that like to bet on Pro Hockey.  I’m going to give you a few tips on how to make your bets on NHL games Better!

So let’s start simple then ramp it up.  There are essentially three ways to bet on a single game.  There is the straight money line bet meaning team x will beat team y, puck line which is team x will beat team y by a certain number of goals, and total scoring over and under.  We will take a look at all three and try and give you advice on how to make money.

I prefer the money line bet in most cases because in the NHL most games are decided by only one goal.  Puck line is a nice idea when you think a favorite has a chance to blow out another team by a least 2 goals in most circumstances.   The over under is also another option usually the over under will be set at around 5 to 5.5 goals in the NHL.  If you have two defensive teams with goalies that are on fire then go with the under, however if the opposite is true two offensive teams with sieves in the net then go with the over.

So now that the terminology is over lets get to the part that will make your bets better.  First you need to think of betting on sports like investing in the stock market the more information you have the better.  In the NHL the most important player on the ice is the goalie and knowing who is in the net is critical.  The website I use every day before I place a bet is www2.dailyfaceoff.com they will list the days confirmed goalie match ups.  So why is this important the last thing you want to do is take a favorite and find out at game time that there going with the backup goalie against the other teams number one starter.  Also if you have access to the NHL network TV station watch NHL live you’ll get the latest injury and player info before the games.  EJ Hradek will give his picks close to the end of the show and he’s usually right on.  If you cant watch all the games I gaurantee he does.

Now I usually go with the favorites in most cases.  You’ll see the lines at the sports book post so a favorite would show -155 for example.  That means to win 100 dollars you need to bet 155.  For an underdog +155 means if you bet 100 you have the chance to win 155.  Just remember that dogs are dogs for a reason try to avoid going crazy on them.  If you have a gut feeling like an underdog team is heating up and playing well try it just don’t do it every time you bet.

As it’s difficult to give any predictions on a single game today here are the teams that I currently like to win the Stanley Cup from top to bottom.  Sharks, Blackhawks,  Blues, Ducks, and the Avalanche.  Going forward I’ll try and give more advice and look deeper at some individual teams.  So… better luck to all!

Don’t Start a Resolution – Set a Goal

1

By Kimber Keating Kiefer

[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]he end of the year is approaching and everyone starts to make New Year’s Resolutions. The issue with New Year’s Resolutions is that people rarely keep them.  Most people think that the New Year is a great time to start changing their ways, eliminating bad habits, and start new routines.  Why wait until the New Year? Change now! This year set goals instead of New Year’s resolutions. There will be a better chance for success if short term and long term goals are set for the entire year.

Why wait until January to make a change? Start goal setting early this year.  Take advantage of the time away from work and school in the next few months around the holidays to start making healthy changes. Create a family tradition like participating in a fun run/walk. This time of year there is good food and treats everywhere.  What better time to get you and the family moving than NOW! Start making small changes now and working towards the bigger goals. Remember to take time to celebrate your successes along the way, no matter how big or small. It will increase your confidence to meet a goal and make life changes.

Set goals that are realistic and attainable. Try not to change too much in your life all at once. It is not realistic to quit smoking, start exercising and start eating healthy all at once. Small changes make it easier to stick to new habits and increase long-term success. If your goal is to run a marathon, start by jogging 2 times a week. If your goal is to eat healthier; start by eliminating a few of your favorite junk foods each week. Focus on taking baby steps that ultimately get you closer to larger goals.
Commit your goals to writing. It gives you a destination in life and gives you a purpose and significance.  If forces you to clarify exactly what you want and provides motivation to make it happen.  Create a vision board with your goals, pictures, and quotes that motivate and inspire you.  Hang it somewhere that you can review it everyday and remind yourself daily what you are working towards.

[dropcap size=small]G[/dropcap]et support from your family and friends. It is important to surround yourself with positive people that support you and your goals if you want to be successful and stay motivated. Make sure your close friends and family are aware of your goals and lifestyle changes you want to make.  Let them know you need their support and accountability to be successful. People can have difficult time with others changing and it can take some time for them to adjust to the new you.

There are going to be challenges and obstacles that get in the way of your goals. Don’t allow them to be excuses that keep you from achieving your goals, use them as an opportunity to learn and grow. If you have a setback and get off track from your goals don’t be hard on yourself and feel like a failure. Don’t allow slip-ups to let you spiral out of control either. Just learn from it and move forward.  Tomorrow is a new day to start fresh. Mistakes are a part of life and it is important to use them as lessons.  Life is about moving forward in the right direction, not about being perfect.

Change is a process and takes commitment, dedication and will power. It may take longer than you like or anticipate to reach a goal. That is ok. It is not a race to the finish. It is best to think of your goals as lifestyle changes not something temporary. Setting and accomplishing goals is about challenging and becoming better than you were yesterday. Set goals, dream big and go for it starting NOW!

petioleWhat’s better than resting your bones in a hammock, part of a gorgeous landscape, having a cocktail by your side and… let’s stop here?! You can find hammocks all the way. But a hammock with a 35.000 USD value is harder. Well, this one has been manually produced by the Swedens, who presented him, afterwards, at the Maison & Objet Paris design show, in Paris.

But what makes this hammock so special. 304 stainless steel pole and a super protective UV canopy. Plus the fact that if you have a maximum of 250 kilos, you safetely enjoy it: it’s soooo sturdy! And, at least but not the last: Petiole is a hammock built for two. Pay the bill and make an invitation!
