Ladbrokes odds

MKL 19/10 underdogs.
Belfast at 4/5 favourites
4/1 the draw

Or

Win only prices:
MKL 27/20
Belfast 8/15

Flames put up a decent fight in Belfast yesterday in a game which turned on a controversial goal on the buzzer.
So will have a little dabble on MKL to win - If we had a full roster available, it'd be a fair bit more.

Bet responsibly!

Good luck to our own 'Motty', Rumble33 with the commentary.

Fortunately no nasty Russian or Czech names in the Belfast roster to stumble over which is a bit of a blessing for the first outing!

Good afternoon from Planet Ice MK, the Giants coach has arrived and players are starting to gather.
Anyone care to throw out some predictions for tonight?
