January 27

Digging out from a snow day here in the northeast. Milwaukee was a giant loser yesterday and Nishikori is still to play this evening. Wawrinka may be nursing an injury hence the play on Kei though it would be a coinflip anyway given recent form. Nishikori is up to -140 at some books. Hockey is […]

Preparing to get snowed in… UW-Milwaukee +13 -105 Also some tennis for tomorrow: Nishikori -122 vs Wawrinka


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]
