Another good day of picks yesterday. Disappointing to see the Timberwolves tank in the second half last night, but didn’t ruin the day for me. The Pistons/Trailblazers game was postponed to today due to incliment weather, so ignoring that in the win/loss numbers, but the result will count again for tomorrow.

It’s still too early to label my new pick strategy as successful, but things are looking good so far. On the day, went 4 for 7 (57%), which brings the two day total to 9 for 15, or 60%. Below is a recap of the picks from yesterday and their respective outcomes.

  • New Orleans Pelicans at Boston Celtics –> Pelicans +7.5 (LOSS)
  • New Orleans Pelicans at Boston Celtics –> Over 213.5 (WIN)
  • New York Knicks at Indiana Pacers –> Knicks +7.5 (LOSS)
  • Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves –> Timberwolves +3.5 (WIN)
  • Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves –> Under 194.0 (WIN)
  • Denver Nuggets at Oklahoma City Thunder –> Nuggets +6.5 (LOSS)
  • Atlanta Hawks at Dallas Mavericks –> Under 196.5 (WIN)
  • Detriot Pistons at Portland Trailblazes –> Under 214.5 (POSTPONED)

Below are my picks for today:

  • Detriot Pistons at Portland Trailblazes –> Under 214.5 (Carry over)
  • Philadelphia 76ers at Brooklyn Nets –> Under 212.5
  • Washington Wizards at Milwaukee Bucks –> Under 210.5
  • Miami Heat at Los Angeles Clippers –> Heat +9.0
  • Houston Rockets at Toronto Raptors –> Under 225.0
  • Cleveland Cavaliers at  Phoenix Suns –> Suns +9.0
  • Detroit Pistons at Portland Trail Blazers –> Under 214.0
  • Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Lakers –> Under 216.0

A good day of picks yesterday to start the year off on the right foot. I’ve been testing a new algorithm and betting system, but too early to define success without a larger data set. Here are the results of yesterdays picks. Total results = 5/8 = 62.5%

  • Brooklyn Nets at Cleveland Cavaliers (Nets +13.5) = WIN
  • Houston Rockets at Orlando Magic (Under 224.5) = WIN
  • Minnesota Timberwolves at Washington Wizards (Under 212.5) = WIN
  • New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks (Under 213.5) = LOSS
  • Memphis Grizzlies at Golden State Warriors (Under 214.5) = LOSS
  • Memphis Grizzlies at Golden State Warriors (Grizzlies +13.5) = WIN
  • Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers (Heat +2.5) = LOSS
  • Los Angeles Clippers at Sacramento Kings (Under 211.5) = WIN

Using the same technique as yesterday’s picks, here are my picks for today’s games.

  • New Orleans Pelicans at Boston Celtics –> Pelicans +7.5
  • New Orleans Pelicans at Boston Celtics –> Over 213.5
  • New York Knicks at Indiana Pacers –> Knicks +7.5
  • Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves –> Timberwolves +3.5
  • Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves –> Under 194.0

In an effort to diversify my investments, I’ve decided to take a much more aggressive yet diversified approach to this blog. I will be using a blend of “swing trades” in the stock market, sports betting opportuities, commodity trading, and increasing my investments in my 401k account. My goal is now to accumulate $1M in net worth by the time I hit my 40th birthday, which is less than 8 years away.

Current picks for today’s sporting events are as follows:

  • Brooklyn Nets at Cleveland Cavaliers
    • Nets+13.5
  • Houston Rockets at Orlando Magic
    • Under 224.5
  • Minnesota Timberwolves at Washington Wizards
    • Under 212.5
