Thursday

Nothing yesterday though Charlotte covered and Nashville lost for anyone who played.  Hockey has Dallas, Columbus and Anaheim on the shortlist for today with Minnesota in NBA showing up as well.  I have OSU to win the East at +1100 for my only NCAA action which is not looking very good at the moment. Season […]

Wednesday

2-1 in baseball last night as we saw how (somewhat) meaningless these line moves can be, or in other words that the game is played “on the field.” Mets were a winner after a close game was broken open in the 7th after a lengthy rain delay. I got +115 but the line moved back […]

Tuesday

Nothing to report again yesterday, but there’s definitely some action today. Two confirmed plays so far: Arizona (Corbin) @ Mets (Hefner) +115 LA Dodgers (Kershaw) @ Colorado (Oswalt) +141 Game-time decision on the White Sox-Baltimore under 8.5. It’s close but may end up being worth a play. In the other game of note today, Miami […]

Monday

As mentioned, no plays yesterday and probably nothing again today. Slight lean on the Padres hosting Cliff Lee and the Phillies tonight. Only four games today in MLB and nothing doing in soccer besides the under-20 World Cup. I’ve got the live-betting open for the US-France game currently underway, but nothing so far there either. […]

Coming Up Out of Retirement

Okay, ok.  I get it.  The media is all over me.  Anyone for tennis?  I BELIEVE that Ferrer is going to beat Tsonga.  I KNOW that the odds do not justify the bet.  I WILL gamble on the event because i am drunk with a hunch. TOTAL GAMES: OVER 41.5 -113 67 Units  

Kickass Reading Material

Word to your mothers, the three articles below are looooooooooong. Awesome stuff though and as good as anything I could ever hope to write. Print and read. 36 hours with the Atlanta Hawks by Lang Whitaker. “This team has a chance to do something special if you believe in each other,” Woodson said. “If you […]

Back from the homeland & blogging again… Good clock management story today on ESPN from Greg Garber. The column mentions Dick Curl & Herm Edwards at one point, which gives me reason to re-quote my favorite story from the 2009 season. Is there a less encouraging sight than Dick Curl excitedly imparting information to an […]

Tennis Gambling

Story about how a surge of gambling went on during a WTA event when microphones picked up a father telling his 6th ranked daughter to retire due to injury.  There was commotion as gamblers used the info to bet live and heavily on the other girl, with many calling this unethical.  Random commenter on espn.com […]

Thursday/Friday Links

Even my soccer lock of the week whiffed…Onto the links because at least they don’t cause me to set money on fire. I should just roll something smokable with a $20 and get it over with. Bengals LT and Hard Knocks Man-Boob [NSFW] star Andre Smith apparently should have hired a better agent. That shot […]

Roger Federer being “Artful and Efficient” In a similar vein to the last post about overconfidence, what causes slumps? Rarely, even in a slump, does a performer truly lose all the time; it just feels that way. By bringing attention to what the trader (read: athlete) is doing right, the focus shifts from one of […]
