DENVER has put up 30+ in 2nd half in 3 of 4 games

go with TT OV and Denver 2nd half.  No way Dallas D will stop them and Dallas O is not that good to keep scoring

Need to start paying attention to a pitcher's history in a park instead of his current run....ZITO got bombed like he always does at MILLER PARK.

Hardball Time - April 16

Well, did my best to keep up with the baskets, but couldn't finish out the season after dealing with a cold and regular work load.  Gonna try and do baseball, but will limit myself to only plays I feel are worth a 10 unit play (I'm a small time better, so 10 units = 100 wager).
Bankroll for the season is small, so won't be picking a lot of key plays.

Gonna play parlays and hopefully build on the existing bankroll.
Here we go.....................

Watch out for the teams sitting at 2-0 right now; very hard to sweep a series

Yankees, Phillies, and Blue Jays win.  The only sweep will be the Nationals over the Marlins, just because the Marlins don't have the pitching in the bullpen to match the Nats.

For those who have played the game, whether it be up to high school, college, minors or even reaching the majors, you all know how hard it is to SWEEP a series unless the pitching disparity is skewed to the team trying to sweep.

I don't see any pitching advantage for 3 out of the 4 teams going for a sweep tonight.  Only the NATS have such an advantage

TEX/HOU - OV 8.5

Weather shouldn't be a problem (cold weather/low scores) and both squads are pitching poor (though NORRIS is probably one of the best HOUSTON has).  The key here is the bullpen; both teams gonna give up runs late with their bullpens...more like "fire-starters" than "firemen" LOL!!

Something to think about - OKC / MEM game

Found this on blogspot...

So, what if it goes: Spurs 63 wins, Nuggets 60 wins, Thunder 60 wins, Clippers 60 wins, and Grizzlies 60 wins?

1.) Spurs - division winner
2.) Nuggets - win Northwest with head-to-head tiebreaker over Thunder, get higher seed over Clips with head-to-head tiebreaker, get nod over Memphis as NW division winner
3.) Clippers - division winner
4.) 5.) Thunder or Grizzlies - whoever wins the tiebreaker game tonight (1-1)

You never know what can happen in the "No Bets Allowed" league, so keep this in mind when trying to pick a side tonight....who wants this game more??!!

Mar 19 - Pick(s)

Plays for March 19
Too many plays yesterday - need to limit to 1-2 LARGE / 1-2 MEDIUM....

LARGE
OKC (-9.5) vs. DENVER --> listing the latest line for record, but my play is in at (-8 placed last night, buy 1/2 pt down)
DENVER on B2B as the AWAY team, off an OT game (W, but no cover) and how ironic that this is the EXACT situation they faced OKC the last time (in Oklahoma City).  DOG of -9, off OT W (though at home the last time) off B2B games....WOW!!  OKC won by 20, so that should be the same margin of victory here.  Game total a little high (last time the total hit 214) so will lay off any call on that.


MEDIUM
PORTLAND (+5.5) vs. MILWAUKEE --> though this is off a B2B for the Blazers, they are playing with REVENGE (home loss by 6 when they were down by 17 at the half) and hopefully they won't stink it up and play their normal "all offense/no defense" game tonight.  MILWAUKEE isn't known for their defense either, so this should be a pretty high scoring game.

SACRAMENTO (+9.5) vs. LA CLIPPERS --> the Kings have played well at home lately and this is the largest AF line for the Clips this year (prior to today, the largest was -8 and they were 1-1 ATS in that situation).  I don't think the Clips are THAT good, nor do I think the Kings are THAT bad (esp. at home).


Almost MEDIUM plays - "leans" at best
PORTLAND/MILWAUKEE OVER 208 --> I HATE PLAYING O/Us for rated plays, but... [More]
