This time i decided to bet on hockey, a hockey match from Belarus, extraleague, play offs semi finals between Neman Grodno and Shakhtar Soligorks. So far, the series result is tied, 2-2. This is a lot more unpredictable series compared to the other semi final between Yunost Minsk and Molodechno where the team of Yunost Minsk managed to win 4:1 and are the 1st finalist. In the regular season Neman Grodno finished 2nd place in the league, while Shakhtar Soligorks were 1 place behind, which means in case of 7th game, Neman Grodno will have home court advantage. The last match was won by Neman Grodno 3:4, after OT. In my opinion they shift the momentum on their side after losing 2 straight matches 4:0.
Hockey is one of the most unpredictable sports, where a lot of times the underdogs are the winners, which means not always the underdogs are the weaker team, it just hard to predict, because many of the teams are equal. Perhaps for this match Neman Grodno are rightfully favourites for the victory. After all, they won the championship twice in the last 3 season. Last season they lost in the final vs Yunost Minsk. There are big possibilites to see a rematch.
Since the series are tied 2:2, this match 5 is probably the most important match so far, because the winner will have opportunity to close the series in game 6. Neman Grodno is popular team in Belarus and they have big support from the city of Grodno. They do not have big arena, however it is always full, so today they will have big boost from the crowd. I expect very balanced match with not so many goals, so i will try with the guest not scoring more than 2 goals. My bet is team total, Shakhtar Soligorks under 2.5, good luck.
