Ample Time Plays

All plays here are @ 17.  Loubacca is taking Germany thru me this evening. Min/Cin Over 7.5 -123 Tex +143 ML Bos/Tor Under 9 -110 Hou (-1.5 +142) Ari +108 ML Sea +108 ML ***UPDATE*** Canceling Bos/Tor Under.  Estrada likely to be fatigued after last few outings.  Eduardo Rodriguez was shelled last time after allegedly […]

Beyond Last Second Play

Natinals as Loubacca says, -170 @ 21.  This bet is based on 2 words, Freddie Freeman.  Would not be surprising if many pitchers who face the Braves over the next couple weeks appear Kershaw-like.

MLB Play

I’m a fixin’ to get fairly aggressive on baseball plays moving forward.  Let’s start it out right. Total Runs Today Away Teams +111 @ 25

Bball Future

I have taken the Bulls @ +743 @ 16 to win the Eastern Conference.  The Cavs and Hawks are overvalued ludicrously and marginally respectively.  When I looked in late February I want to say Chicago was still being priced around +250, so this appears to be good value.

Pat Hetic

It’s time for our longest running segment here on miraclecovers.  Pat gets wasted and chases dead money with horrific 2nd half bets on NFL Sunday?  No silly, it’s time for baseball over/unders.  I only had about 3 months to get my act together on these and I am late and under-prepared.  But what are you […]

Over? Under?? I hardly know her!!

Going to save comment on these until making picks in about a week.  Detroit and Philly are no-shows at the moment… Arizona Diamondbacks 72.5 Atlanta Braves 73.5 Baltimore Orioles 82.5 (Over -127) Boston Red Sox 85.5 (Over -124) Chicago Cubs 82.5 (Over -127) Chicago White Sox 81.5 ( Over -125) Cincinnati Reds 78.5 (Under -149) […]

Just a quickie

Slightly random bet here that I am probably putting about 25% too much on. Di Maria to score today – Yes (+260) @ 16 Special thanks go out to my Irish brothers at Paddy Power (!) for the line.

Champions League

My apologies for negligence recently.  Action will be picking up greatly now… Chelsea to win CL +726 @ 7

1/18 – EPL and Championship Sunday

Our very fortunate day yesterday takes us to positive territory for the month.  I wholeheartedly agree with Louis that Indy and Seattle are the best options later today and likely those will be the picks here barring weird line movement.  For now… West Ham vs Hull City Under 2 and 2.5 (-104) @ 14 Do not […]

1/17 – Exacto Express…Toot Tooooot

Have talked about these before a few times.  These are some of the most fun, nerve-splintering, excruciating bets you can put yourself through.  You haven’t gambled until you have lived through a 2-2 exacto draw.  All plays @ 3. Aston 0 Liverpool 2 (+743) Burnley 2 Crystal Palace 1 (+912) Leicester 2 Stoke 1 (+922) […]
