Is it some sort of joke that they have us picking the nhl allstar game? no one can predict the winner its 50/50 bullshit. why not the probowl? congrats to the people that picked the winner and regardless if i win or lose this is friggin garbage how some people put in time and effort to research and make the correct picks and then they throw in the nhl allstar game. what a joke.

I went ahead and picked it as it was an automatic.  Better hope you don't lose by 1 or you'll kick yourself

while the hockey game is (was) a 50/50 prop, so is just about any game you get to choose with the spread. That's the point of a point spread to hopefully get 50/50 action. I'm not sure on the research some perform, but I wish those people luck. Because contrary to what people may think, this is a game of luck in many and most ways. My research is simple, if it looks too good to be true, take the opposite side of the wet dream. Because people know these things better than me. And I've been up and down the gambling hell of life. My bookies favorite saying was awesome, "The more you bet, the more you can win!" If anything this game I hope helps people realize that those guys on TV and in the media lie their collective fools off about their 90% win records.

Like I say to anyone complaining about anything in regards to this competition. If you don't like it don't play.

I think I was more surprised that they didn't have the over/under for the NHL All-Star game than the game itself.  Then again, can't remember the last time an NHL All-Star game went under.
