Just and amazing sports week with Bowl games, world juniors and NHL. Really want to unplug my phone and just absorb it all! Looking at a few games, but refuse to put -215 on a home game. If you know my picks, always looking for value. Love the home dog angle this year, very lucrative.
Islanders -113 - This could very well go past regulation, like the Isles to edge in a close one.
Flyers - Have written this team off numerous times this year. They sucked versus Coyotes the other night, think they show up here.
Tyler Seguin to score
Home dog parlay
+188 Sabres-Panthers +136
USA/Canada to go to OT/SO.
BOL puckheads, have the best and safe NYE to all!

Been a while. Looking at a few right now. Blues as that much a dog is real enticing. Only two plays right now. BOL to the forum.
Leafs -136- Juice I hate, but Canes in disarray and Leafs filling the net.
Panthers-+123 Gerard Gallant doing wonder for the kitty cats. Philly strong at home, but think the Cats steal one.

Been fun having success in the early going. Really want to throw down on some dogs today like Isles, Ducks, and the defending champs kings getting +140! Just going with a total right now though.
Isles/Avs over 5.5 - See the offence continuing here. Looked at the TB/Philly total too but see it is at 6.
BOL to the forum!

Good little start to the season. Just going with the one total so far. Something is begging me to pull trigger on Ducks and Sabres though at plus money.
Jets/Isles over 5.5 - Don't fix what isn't broken. Bring on the red light! Don't tell Roxanne!
BOL to the forum!

Going conservative today. Interested to see how Kobe and the Lakers respond after last years rock bottom.
Rockets/Lakers over 206.
BOL to the forum.

Great to be back. Looking to make a lot of plays this year. Usually wrapped up with football betting this time of year, so don't post picks much. 2 road teams. In both cases going with the better offensive talent.
Dallas +106-Really high on Dallas this year, Devils still confound experts buy importing older players.
Bolts -111-Really confounding how they have done on this road trip. Jets might make a game on work ethic, but not enough finishing power.

3-5 MLB YTD
Stopped posting for a bit after a recent slide. Baseball is a slippery slope right now, a lot of bottom feeder/cockroach teams taking out contenders. Imagine if the Cubs played all these young guns from the beginning of the season? You don't see Balty often as a +130 dog. Might bite. But two plays right now.
KC Royals +1.5 - Royals road record and Shields getting my attention.
Phillies/Nats run in first inning.-This Strasburg stat is one of the best kept secrets right now. No linesmaker adjustment either. Jerome Williams is a good bet, and Strasburg's struggles always in the early innings. It has to have hit over 50% for Strasburg this season.
Going to be posting some college picks and NFL very soon. I am on Northern Illiinois +7.5, and maybe USC ml.

Terrible weekend, with money wasted on the O's and the Angels/As pitching duel last not not materiaizing. New day and new week Loooking forwrd to CFB and llimiting baseball picks. Le's get it!

Bad things with Baltimore yesterday. have rode them all year, but the Cubs of all teams making them look mediocre. Only on Marlins today. Also Angels/Oaktown under 7.5. BOL to the forum. Thoughts and prayers for SF quake victims!
Angels/Oakland under 7.5.

Just one early pick so far. Going with the O's which should be a good pitching matchup with Hendriks. BOL to the forum.

On a small 2-0 streak. Very tempted at going with Angels and Orioles again today, but wary of some dogs hitting today. Was looking at Pirates, but such a losing proposition. Yesterday's Rangers/Marlins over total was very juiced, but didn't hit. Usually the books put a failing total up a notch the next day, but it is staying the same at 7.5. Feels like a trap, but going to take the bait there will be 8+ runs in this game. Pray Martinez doesn't pitch a gem. More later. Looking at one more pick.
Rangers/Marlins over 7.5

Not often when a total leaps out at me but like Jerome Williams and C.J. Wilson to give up some runs.
Philies/Angels over 8.5

Have barely post anything this season, got myself out of a financial hole so have some house money finally. Missed the day time plays, kicking myslef because Scherzer is back in form and dealing today. That was an easy under pending. Just going with one play and small parlay. BOL to the forum!
Nats -110 - Were embarrassed yesterday by that gas can Strasberg. I see this scrappy squad getting back into the win column.
Chisox +168 - Giants +132 parlay- See more value with the giants, but Chisox have too many good hitters to be neutralised like this.
Posted Tuesday, June 17, 2014 11:00 AM
Team basketball is back! No big 3, big six, press NWO gang mentality. Drafted players, great passing. Complete anti-thesis to the ESPN highlight reel mentality. Bill Russell won almost twice as many titles as Jordan, but he wasn't a human highlight reel tv era player. Don't get me wrong I love Jordan like the rest, but we got to see all his games. How many of Russell's 20-30+ rebound games are out there?
Posted Thursday, May 01, 2014 10:20 AM
First pick of the year. Waited a month specifically to see who is for real and who is not. Starting conservatively as I don't want to get into parlays and that stuff til later.
Braves -128 - Baves getting hosed by Fish the past few days. Santana gets them on track, or at least makes this a game!
Looking at a Red Sox play with Peavy but haven't full pulled the trigger. Psyched to be back this baseball season!

13-12 NHL, 2-0 AHL regular season
What's up puckheads? Been quite some time. Best forum and posters on covers by far. Think it's the canadian element, that lacks the sociopath keyboard warriors on the other forums. Although the soccer forum is class too. Anyways, no posted playoff picks til today, still reeling that the Pens couldn't hold down a 3-0 lead, would have been one heck of a boost to my bank if that came through. But that's hockey. No lead his is really safe with the exception of some Sharks games I have watched.
Detroit +202 - First pick is a straight up dog. Realise Bruins are a scary machine right now. And the Bear is peaking. I think Howard stands on his head today and they repeat the closeness of last game, but this time the Wings eke it out.
Colorado-No way they get just 12 shots on goal again. Nate Mac gets them back on the horse.

13-10 YTD AHL 2-0
Wanted to pull the trigger with Red Wings yesterday but just couldn't. And that 3-2 anaheim under killed my day. Back at er today. Want to finish the week strong. Still on fence with the Avs game.
Jackets/Flyers over 5.5 - Playoff hockey screams unders, but these two teams combined for 25 goals in the three games they were in this year.
Steven Stamkos to score - Just praying this isn't some 2-1 pain induced game. The best goal scorer in the league folks. Ovie has 48 but is a power play specialist.

12-9 NHL YTD 2-0 AHL picks
Time of year when picks get limited due to baseball which is a much easier sport to handicap IMO. Still in the thick of it with my puck homies though.
Pens -180 - Hate juice, but Canes on b to b, and see Crosby taking the team on his shoulders now that Malkin is out. If Fleury can stop a beachball feel good about this pick.
Avalanche +120 - Duchene out, but so is Horton. Blue Jackets need points to stay alive. But still give the edge to Avs offense, like Nate dog Mckinnon.

11-8 NHL YTD 2-0 AHL
Painful Chicago/Philly total last night. The dreaded 3-2 score! Those west coast games were the same thing. Staying away from totals for a while. Hasn't served me well. Love NHL rivalry night. can't wait to see the Blues game. My problem the past two days is I love about 80% of the road teams. In fact making a play on maybe one or two tonight.
Blues +102 - I know Oshie is out for personal reasons, but like Miller in nets and the Blackhawks are frustrated or they are saving 40 + shots for Miller tonight.
Bolts -116 - Can see Stamkos lighting up his boyhood team tonight. Leafs have shown me nothing, while I can see Bishop shutting them out 4-0 or something.
Looking for a homer play but not feeling Jets or Nucks! BOL to the forum!

10-7 NL YTD 2-0 AHLYTD
What's up puck heads? been a while. Psyched for my cash cow baseball in a few weeks. Looking at a few puck plays tonight. Patty Roy versus my Habs tonight. Not touching it considering the insanity that went down saturday night.
Hawks/Flyers over 5.5 - Gearing up for a goal fest on TSN2 tonight. I think this will get ugly.
Rangers -128 - Sens in freefall and love Rangers road record this year. Maybe naming Spezza as captain was big mistake?
Also leaning Blue Jackets and maybe Leafs. Smell a trap though. Some lucrative dogs are going to come in. But don't have guts to take Caps or Islanders or Stars. But feeling those three teams will go 1-2.

7-7 NHL YTD AHL 1-0
Fourth consecutive year used a sick day for nhl trade deadline! Dont tell my boss! Was exciting, some good deals, but I want to seriously offer myslef as a candidate for Garth Snow's GM job, getting me in there could bring some glory and stability to a much tarnished franchise. Couldn't be too hard. As for my Habs getting Vanek, was a good deal by not giving too much for a rental. Seeing him as a good playoff scoring addition, Would have loved Kesler, but so would tons of other teams. Just want the Habs to get more players hard to play against, and get rid of fluff like Rene Bourque. As for the picks tonight, been a while, looking at a few prop-like picks. Reeling from that being a loser on that San Hoser total last night. Missed the Canes big dog ml.
Caps/Flyers over 5.5 - Cashed last week on this, and see no stop.
Ovechkin to score - worth it, since he failed to score in the last matchup with these teams.
Rangers over 34.5 shots - Leafs should have traded for a shot blocking defenseman, Leafs always get badly outshot. Marty St. Louis playing tonight. A good shot at a high shot total.
AHL - Oklahoma city/Utica ovver 5.5 - Linesmakers finally putting some juice on the best AHL bet. Been on an OKC over a lot this year. Never seems to lose.
As for taking a stab at the Habs big dog ml, going to be a game time decision. They beat the Ducks already once this year, and tend to show up against teams t... [More]

Used to love that Cure song . That was 1992. Loved 95's Burn song on the Crow soundtrack, haven't released a good album since 1992. Have next two days to make any NHL profits, but being one of the few I will be capping AHL games tduring the break to the best of my abilities. You think NHL is bad? Super no hope underdog/bottomfeeders win all the time. Will tear your hair out. Going with dogs today. Also when break is over, league goes on an over tear. Be ready for that.
AHL pick OKC/Charlotte over 5.5 - OKC sometimes gives up to 8-9 goals in some games.
Rangers +149 - Price is right in this matchup, I can see Pens shellshocked and disinterested with Olympic jitters and bummed about Letang.
Blue Jackets +151 - Close game versus Kings, thought they would pull it out. San Joser always over valued. Will they ever make the finals? Nope.
BOL to the forum. Lets get that cash in the next few days so we don't have to bet on cross country wrestling!

Just hitting home what a black hole it will be for a while with no NHL for a month. I am sure we can get in on some Olympic plays, but for pucks only plays will be on AHL. Have dabbled a bit over the years on games, but its even more frustrating than NHL where there are a lot of upsets. With football done, only going to be soccer and NBA which are two of my least favorite betting sports. Not trying to be depressing, just anticipating this downtime.

5-4 NHL YTD
Not posting near enough. I find I change my mind on hockey picks a little too much, and make up my mind at the last minute unless I feel really strong about a pick. The Ducks are amazing by the way. Never thought they would be this good. Going with a few picks tonight and one total. I like making picks of televised games like Flyers/Sabs but undecided until later.
Blues -220 - Juice is insane, but Yotes in a freefall and Blues are so money at home or any game for that matter.
Isles -111 - Isles are streaking road warriors. Breaking road records from the cup winning year of 81. Tavares and Okposo are scorching right now. Cats tough at home which worries me, but riding the Isles and Blue Jackets for a while. I could see this game and the Sens/Wild game go past regulation.
Avs/Blackhawks over 5.5 - Love these games, Wish I could watch the entire game instead of Flyers/Sabs. Great offences. Looking at 4-3 kind of game.
As aforementioned, still on the fence with Flyers/Sabres game. Sabs very good at home, Miller has been lights out. Flyers had a nice streak going until getting blown out by Rags and Bolts. Sabres have a below average offence, looking at the under. Hope they didn't put it at 5. Going to make up my mind this aft. Stay tuned! Like about three other games actually, but the last time I had a big card, went 3-6 or something, 5 games went to OT or something insane like that.

Happy 2014 Pucksters! Been a while, treading dangerous waters in erratic Bowl season. Looking to get back to pucks. Looking at some sides and totals.
Canes/Caps over 5.5 - Could go either way, but if Cam Ward plays, I like this one a lot.
Hawks/Isles over 6.5 - Should be a track meet.
Blue Jackets +140 - Yotes been to OT past six games, I think they will make it seven tonight. Horton should be a good addition to squad. Johansen is hot as a firecracker.
Wanted to make a Kings/Blues play, but undecided. Lets get this!
