ECAC Power Ratings, Picks, etc. – Feb. 22, 2018

ECAC Hockey logo

Hey all – sorry there was no update to the ratings last week. I got injured two weeks ago and my brain wasn’t willing to do calculations for about a week. All better now, though, so I’ve crunched the numbers on how bad each ECAC team sucks (or doesn’t).

First, the ratings. I did calculate last week’s ratings… as you would expect, they’re in the “Last Week” column. If you want to compare last week to Feb. 8’s ratings, you’re on your own.

Overall ratings:

Overall Indexed Rating Last Week Change
Quinnipiac 124.58 126.07 -1.49
Union 113.75 114.42 -0.67
Clarkson 112.37 112.91 -0.54
Cornell 107.39 109.73 -2.34
Harvard 106.64 108.02 -1.38
Yale 101.52 99.47 2.05
Brown 97.97 98.61 -0.64
Dartmouth 93.23 92.9 0.33
Princeton 92.44 94.31 -1.87
Colgate 82.32 83.13 -0.81
RPI 88.9 87.42 1.48
SLU 78.9 73.02 5.88

This week’s picks:

Friday, Feb. 22 (lines from 5dimes.eu)

Union (-320) at Colgate (+240) EC 7:00 pm ET
Rensselaer (+500) at Cornell (-900)  EC 7:00 pm ET
Yale (-125) at Dartmouth (-115)  EC,IV 7:00 pm ET
Brown (+240) at Harvard (-320)  EC,IV 7:00 pm ET
Clarkson (-260) at Princeton (+180)  EC 7:00 pm ET
St. Lawrence (+1300) at Quinnipiac (-3000)  EC 7:00 pm ET

Notable, here, is how big an underdog 5dimes has St. Lawrence. I think they’re probably underrating the Bobcats, but then, there’s not much value in that game. Brown is probably the best bet of the underdogs, having recently beaten Quinnipiac and put together a great late season run.

Saturday, Feb. 23

Rensselaer at Colgate EC 7:00 pm ET
Union at Cornell  EC 7:00 pm ET
Brown at Dartmouth  EC,IV 7:00 pm ET
Yale at Harvard  EC,IV 7:00 pm ET
St. Lawrence at Princeton  EC 7:00 pm ET
Clarkson at Quinnipiac  EC 7:00 pm ET
