It´s playoff time in the NHL. The opening day immediately offers an exciting clash in…
Olten vs. La Chaux-de-Fonds Prediction, Tips & Odds – Mar. 28, 2022
As expected the promotion fight in the Swiss National League B will be contested between four of the strongest teams from the regular season – Kloten, Thurgau, Olten and La Chaux-de-Fonds. All of these teams will be looking to enter the final and fight for the entry into the promised land, the top National League A tier.
In one of the semi-final series two old foes from the regular season, second-placed Olten and third-placed La Chaux will clash for a place in the final. We see them as more or less two even teams so we should be in for a very competitive and exciting series.
Throughout this entire season Olten have been displaying dominance but we have to be fair and say the competition hasn´t been very fierce except for a couple of teams from the top. One of them are La Chaux-de-Fonds who can definitely handle them and beat them which they´ve already proven during the regular season.

Home team had certain players return from injuries in the middle of their quarter-final series against Sierre. That immediately bolstered their already powerful attack which was unstoppable during the regular season. Nothing has changed in the playoffs as seventh-placed Sierre just couldn´t keep up with their high-octane rhythm. Led by their three Canadian forwards, Dion Knelsen, Dominic Forget and Garry Nunn who are all back and finally fully fit, they rolled over Sierre with a 4:1 series win scoring an impressive 27 goals in those five games.
That gives a rare average of 5.4 goals scored per game so La Chaux´s unreliable defense could be on the ropes. Team from the French part of Switzerland has based this season´s success on their highly productive offense and never gave too much attention to their defense. With their unstoppable Norwegian forward Mathias Trettenes and their newest addition from North America Michael Huntebrinker they are extremely hard to contain but most of the teams didn´t have a tough time scoring against them.
Olten vs La Chaux-de-Fonds Prediction
In our opinion this opening game realistically could go either way. We found value in betting on goal totals because these two teams like to play at a frantic pace with a lot of shots, hits and powerplays. Their defensive players often help out their attack and leave a lot of room at the back. So far this season out of five head-to-head games four games finished with at least six goals so the pick we are suggesting also has strong statistical background.
Pick: Total Over 5.5 Goals
