TOMAZ ADaMEK +102
RISKING $1000 TO WIN $1000
should be a decent fight but i see ademek closing it out. Wouldnt be surprised to see adamek get the ko
risking $300 to win $1275
angulo was julio years ago, however julio is quicker and if the idoit would get in real shape, he could one day win a title belt. Angulo is to telegraphic and im still on the boat that julio would beat cintron. Cintron make angulo look silly, and julio has alittle more movement then him. I worry bout the scorecards and julio's conditioning but the price is good enough if you ask me.
i wouldnt be surpirised if joksan beats beltran later tonight but no play. I had $600 on kessler but im alittle late on that.
on a personal note, i decided to quit betting for a while since my life had got way to busy and personally i lose more cash the first couple of months of boxing anyways. So my money has been going elsewhere. However after mopping up a $1000 on sergio martinez last week im more then willing to put it on adamek. gl all

had one win last week and it was a parlay of the hyland bros to win a $100......fight started early and my posting after a victory would have looked stupid......Bad week as it seemed everyone in the boxing betting world was on the same page as me and not for a good thing....
I am glad i didnt bet antillion on any parlays and this was why....Acosta if you remember handed Adjaho his only defeat and honestly i never saw the fight but i heard it was close and adjaho deserved the victory....So i figured Acosta must be a slick quick fighter as well to be able to maintain with adajho but had no power.....Well antillion is a fighter like daniel jacobs, Hylon Williams Jr. (if he ever makes a leap) and angulo (who i thought would beat cintron but then get exposed horribly versus Martinez) ia overrated to the tee.....
But there was no way i thought acosta would prove this now when the eba was begging to hand over a trinket to antillion....well.. we were all wrong..Antillion reminds me of Angulo a tad bit and acosta just burned him out.....Acosta by no mean is the next great thing and proabley will share the same fate as Mr. prescott next year on espn.....
and i think this fight is going to be a good one after all and marquez might be worth some small action......and its going over.......marquez is looking mean and strong in training
After the NBA season concludes after the finals, a long stretch of inactivity occurs within a normal sports handicapper. Why is that? Well there is only one mainstream handicapping sport left to bet on. Betting on baseball is one of the most difficult sports to make money on as well as it can be the cause of 90% of all grinders sports related heartattacks. To much of the game betting line relys on one person and if Johan Santana decides to turn into John Rocker then your typically S.O.L and so is the heavy juiced money you invested in one team. It works the same as well if Jonathan Sanchez of the Giants becomes Nolan Ryan and pitches a no hitter. Believe me there is money to be made but it honestly becomes a chore and since there is so many games many times handicappers fire away at too many games. The control is tough as well as the betting lines.
I grew up watching boxing in the 1980's and 90's on every saturday night at my grandparents house. My grandfather (r.i.p) was in love with the sport and for me it was a way we bonded and i enjoyed being one of the guys with him. My favorite memory was when me, him and my dad were watch Meldrick Taylor pick apart Chavez like a surgeon only to be shocked when Taylor wasnt smart enough to run for the last round and got dropped with seconds away from winning the fight on the scorecards easily. There is nothing more i rather do in life then a championship fight.
As my obsession with gambling kicked in at the age of 18, I was always trying to find out a way to make some easy money as you can call it and i was betting on the NFL to the Olympics. Then i noticed i was decent in all sports and was okay enough to make money doing so but I was very impressive in one sport...Boxing. Last year i joined covers and ran a running total of all my sport and posted every play i made. Turned out I was able to prove my skills on paper.
See boxing is different the any other sport out there. Boxing is not a team sport, which makes handicapping a fight a bit less complex. So many times the value out there is ridulous. In boxing many times a +500 dog has a better chance of winning then the -700 favorite. Because many fight are not televised live in the USA then little is known on some of these guys so the lines are based off of glossy records.
I dont have to hit 60% in boxing to win for the year, and i dont even have to hit 50% either. Why is that? Because i bet on dogs close to 80% of the time where is feel a favorite is getting way too much credit or when a dog is being overlooked. Because we are in the age of the internet it is easily availble to watch fights overseas unlike years past so one can look past records and acclamades. Anyone can pick a heavly favored Pacquiao or a Floyd Mayweather to win but only a few can pick a +800 Victor Emilo Ramirez or a +1000 Cornelious Bundrage to shock the boxing world.
So since Boxing gets very little play here on covers.com I am offically going to force the covers world into betting on boxing and helping others make money at the same time as rejuvination the intrest of the sport. Consider my newly created blog as the ambassator of boxing at covers.com. Hello to you all and may the cash roll in.

These are close to my final numbers for 2008.......Since 3 NFL games remain, if I bet action to those games I will count them towards 2008 totals. However, i could just lay off. NBa will not roll over.
