If Marc Savard or Vinny Lecavalier are any indication, its anything but certain that we’ll see the same Sid we knew before the concussion.  Hope he’s ok.

Ok, I’ll admit I quite dont understand how these statistics work, but for what Im geetting there, its saying he has less chance on getting a point, than he does at scoring a goal??

Do I suck that much at understanding how you post your statistics, or is that completally wrong?

Sorry if I dont get this right, but I have no idea what the +- means on those lines:
Yes   -140
No   +110

Zqto, In this instance, if a - precedes the number, that means you have to bet $140 to win $100.

If it is a + sign, you bet $100 and you win $110.

American odds are kind of dumb.  Look at it this way:

A + is what you win on a bet of $100.  So betting $100 that he won’t score a goal could win you $110 (you’ll walk away with $210)

A - is what you have to be to return $100. So betting $140 that he will score a goal could win you $100 (you’ll walk away with $240, but will have risked more.

Here are the decimal odds (take your bet times this number to get what your winnings would be)

Score a goal:
Yes: 1.71
No: 2.1

Record a point:
Yes: 1.3
No: 3.5

Your payoff is more if he scores a goal than if he records a point.

Hahaha, sweet, thanks a lot for the lessons

Now it all makes sense, you gotta put more money into him making a point than a goal, the world is back on its place


The decimal odds, as you called it, make way more sense to me
