Jan 13th, 2017

Got a little over zealous yesterday with my picks, and I suffered as a result of it. Went 13 for 24, for a win rate of 54%. Still profitable, so I shouldn’t complain, but not the type of numbers I like to shoot for. Looking back at the games, there were actually several that I lost in the very last minute of the match. Two of the “unders” alone went to overtime, which blew those picks.

Total win rate is now 62.8%, with 54 wins and 32 losses. Below are the results from yesterday.

  • Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs (Lakers +14.0) = LOSS
  • Detroit Pistons at Golden State Warriors (Under 219.0) = LOSS
  • Detroit Pistons at Golden State Warriors (Pistons +13.0) = LOSS
  • Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Miami Florida Hurricanes (Under 139.5) = WIN
  • Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles at Old Dominion Monarchs (Over 119.5) = WIN
  • Hofstra Pride at Elon Phoenix (Under 152.0) = LOSS
  • Tennessee State Tigers at Eastern Kentucky (Under 136.0) = WIN

Unbelieveable.

I have no other words that would adequately describe the run I’ve had over the past week, and yesterday was no exception. I went an amazing 10 for 14, with a win rate of 71%, bringing the running total to a mind boggling 41 of 62, or 66% win percentage. Most handicappers would take 57% in a heartbeat, so beating that by nearly 10% is unheard of!

Below is a recap of yesterday’s games:

  • Washington Wizards at Boston Celtics (Wizards +5.5) = LOSS
  • Memphis Grizzlies at Oklahoma City Thunder (Under 203.5) = WIN
  • Houston Rockets at Minnesota Timberwolves (Timberwolves +4.0) = WIN
  • Cleveland Cavaliers at Portland Trail Blazers (Trail Blazers +5.5) = WIN
  • South Carolina Gamecocks at Tennessee Volunteers (Under 141.0) = WIN
  • Dayton Flyers at Massachusetts Minutemen (Minutemen +7.0) = WIN
  • Dayton Flyers at Massachusetts Minutemen (Under 144.5) = WIN
  • Fordham Rams at Davidson (Under 140.5) = WIN
  • Pittsburgh Panthers at Louisville Cardinals (Under 140.5) = LOSS
  • Nebraska Omaha at IUPUT Jaguars (Under 167.0) = WIN
  • Memphis Tigers at Tulsa Golden Hurricane (Hurricane +4.5) =WIN
  • Memphis Tigers at Tulsa Golden Hurricane (Under 141.5) = LOSS
  • Illinois State Redbirds at Southern Illinois Salukis (Under 133.0) = WIN
  • LSU Tigers at Texas A&M Aggies (Under 149.0) = LOSS

And last but certainly not least, here at today’s picks:

Still have a hot hand after 3 profitable days in a row… yesterday made that a 4th! Pretty happy with the way these picks worked out in both the NBA and the NCAA. I was caught up watching the college football championship game last night (no bet), so didn’t get a chance to watch these live. Looking through the box scores though, this could easily have been even better if St. Peters didn’t take their foot off the gas at the end of the ball game. Oh well, that’s why you place a lot of small bets, even out the variance when the tide rolls against you (pun intended).

Total win rate for yesterday was 4 of 6, for 67%. Total for the week is an incredible 66%, going 21 of 32.

  • Dallas Mavericks at Minnesota Timberwolves (Under 194.0) = WIN
  • Oklahoma City Thunder at Chicago Bulls (Under 209.5) = WIN
  • Oklahoma City Thunder at Chicago Bulls (Bulls +1.5) = LOSS
  • Arkansas Little Rock Trojans at Coastal Carolina (Under 138.0) = WIN
  • Arkansas Red Wolves at Appalachian St. Mountaineers (Under 146.0) = WIN
  • Quinnipiac Bobcats at St. Peter’s Peacocks (Peacocks -7.0) = LOSS

Given the success of this week, I’m going to push my system tonight. Lots more picks today… will post results tomorrow.

  • Boston Celtics at Toronto Raptors –> Celtics +5
  • Boston Celtics at Toronto Raptors –> Under 218.5
  • Charlotte Hornets at Houston Rockets –> Under 227.5
  • Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Lakers –> Under 225.0
  • Miami Heat at Golden State Warriors –> Heat +15.0
  • Miami Heat at Golden State Warriors –> Under 218.0
  • Detroit Pistons at Sacramento Kings –> Pistons +2.0
  • Detroit Pistons at Sacramento Kings –> Under 205.5
  • Baylor Bears at West Virginia Mountaineers –> Mountaineers -6.0
  • Eastern Michigan Falcons at Bowling Green Falcons –> Under 152.0
  • Northern Illinois Huskies at Kent State Golden Flashes –> Under 141.0
  • Kentucky Wildcats at Vanderbilt –> Vanderbilt +12.0

Jan 9th, 2017

A GREAT day of picks yesterday! Even the picks that I got wrong were pretty close, with the one standout being the ridiculous game between the Rockets and the Raptors. With a combined total of 251 points, I consider that an awful baseketball game. Neither team decided they wanted to play any defense, which makes for a lot of points but really takes the enjoyment out of the sport (in my opinion).

Without futher ado, here are the results from yesterday. Went an amazing 7 fof 10 for 70% win rate. Total cumulative results for the week is an incredible 17 of 26, or a 65.4% win rate!

  • Philadelphia 76ers at Brooklyn Nets (Under 212.5) = WIN
  • Washington Wizards at Milwaukee Bucks (Under 210.5) = WIN
  • Miami Heat at Los Angeles Clippers (Heat +9.0) = LOSS
  • Houston Rockets at Toronto Raptors (Under 225.0) = LOSS
  • Cleveland Cavaliers at  Phoenix Suns (Suns +9.0) = WIN
  • Detroit Pistons at Portland Trail Blazers (Under 214.5 – Carry over) = LOSS
  • Detroit Pistons at Portland Trail Blazers (Pistons +4.0) = WIN
  • Golden State Warriors at Sacramento Kings (Kings +12.0) = WIN
  • Golden State Warriors at Sacramento Kings (Under 225.0) = WIN
  • Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Lakers (Under 216.0) = WIN

And last but not certainly not least, here are my picks for today’s games. Just a couple of them due to a slow day in the NBA. I’ll look to expand my picks to NCAA ball as well, but want to refine my picks a little more before making any changes.

  • Dallas Mavericks at Minnesota Timberwolves –> Under 194.0
  • Oklahoma City Thunder at Chicago Bulls –> Under 209.5
  • Oklahoma City Thunder at Chicago Bulls –> Bulls +1.5

For the sake of traceability, here are the picks I would propose for the NCAA ball games today. Note that I’m betting these as I want to be able to track them going forward, but wouldn’t recommend these just yet.

  • Arkansas Little Rock Trojans at Coastal Carolina –> Under 138.0
  • Arkansas Red Wolves at Appalachian St. Mountaineers –> Under 146.0
  • Quinnipiac Bobcats at St. Peter’s Peacocks –> Peacocks -7.0
