    So, where do we start with the problems here?

    1.) Bruins Discount is 41.43% under Face (on Face Price Premium/Discount Tab). Uh, didn’t you just say they were fetching the highest prices and then you show that they are selling at a 41% discount?

    2.) The “Vegas Odds” add up to ~140%. You can’t just divide the two numbers on the Vegas Odds fellas! A 9/4 favorite does not translate to a 44.44% chance to win…

    3.) I log on to their site and click on “Lower Goal” for Home Game 4 for the Bruins and they have tickets in section 17 row 1. Right on the glass! And they’re cheaper than any other lower goal ticket! ….False. The tickets are actually PROMENADE S17 (which is what the actual ticket listing web site CORRECTLY attributes the tickets). That’s level 9…the polar opposite of the lower goal. Some unsuspecting buyer is in for a rude surprise if they buy their tickets through TiqIQ….

    Hey Max, for point 1, the Bruins ARE the most expensive ticket on the secondary market, however with tickets from team starting at $221, there’s a large amount of tickets available below face price.

    We know the Odds dont add up to 100%, just wanted to show a visual representation of each team’s odds while keeping the bar graph
