Monday Night NBA Picks

11-6 on posted plays (including several parlays).  I wish I posted all my plays, but I don't have the time, nor the gumption.
But know that I'm now up over $85k since the beginning of the NFL season (was down this year in baseball).

Tonight I'm taking Golden State +2 + San Antonio -4 (1000)
Also parlayed first halves of both plus GS over 1st half 106.

GS too much firepower for that week Toronto D.  Expect a fast start followed by a little lull and the gradual pull away by Warriors. 
SanAntonio just playing good team ball, as always, while bobcats keep finding a way to lose.  To me, these two are no-brainers.

Wed Night NBA

I'm 7-4 on posted picks on these forums (I haven't been keeping track overall; I bet too much to worry about posting all that stuff.  Always in on 2nd halves and what not.)up over $70k since the start of football season (was down quite a bit before that, so its not as nice as it sounds).

Last night I got killed on Heat for the game; but recovered to win Heat 2nd half plus over of lakers; lakers 2nd half + over 2nd half


my posted picks today are Celtics -3.5 ($2000)
Celtics + Over of the Jazz/Nuggets game 205 ($1100)

Have a bunch of other small ones, but won't bother posting it all.

Like I've read in many other posts, the Celtics may be on the back end of a b2b but they will still dominate the kingless Cavs. Its only the 2nd game of the season, they are not going to be tired yet.  And I almost expect them to come out a little slow because of the emotional drain of winning last nights opener, but they will recover nicely and cover this spread.

Jazz/Nuggets are just screaming for an over at 205, both score in transition and can still put it down when they get mired in the halfcourt.

good luck to all!!!

Early Pick

Posted picks, 7-3 (I bet every single day, multiple wagers, but just recently started posting sparse picks when I get a chance)

Go large on Ravens today, they want to knock the sour taste of the patriots defeat out of their mouth...and they want to do it early....and after blowing the early lead in NE, they will want to finish off buffalo, I see a blowout, 34-10.

Ravens 1st half -7 ($5000)

I've got several parlays as well, but will leave it as my lone posted pick.

Friday NCAA pick

Last night ran my posted picks to 7-2 mark.  Wish I posted all my picks yesterday as I cleaned house with Oregon,  Oregon + Over, Over, Phillies, Phillies + Under and NHL Pitt  It was one of those banner days that keep you in business for a long time to come.  Had a few of those these past 3 weeks.

Anyways, on to tonight.  Cincy offense has awoke since the oklahoma game.  I expect them to come out with guns a blazin against USF defense.  Cincy has a decent defense that will pummel the one dimensional USF offense.  Again, I could post all the statistics in the world, but it wouldn't change your mind one way or another.

Cincy to win handily...  Maybe something like 37-16?

Thurs NCAA pick

Well,  After a tidy 5-0 start on my posted picks, I went 0-2 yesterday (lost $2800).  No matter, can't stay perfect forever.

Tonight: 1st half over of Oregon/UCLA 30.5 ($2000)  I will probably bet the same just on Oregon, but waiting for a better 1st half line, right now it is 14.5, waiting for it to drop back down to 14 at least....even though I believe they will run away right from the opening kickoff.

Also like Pitt in NHL + over oregon 1st half ....$1000

There, 2 more picks.  I'll post new picks later.

Rangers to finish it off.....

Ok, so overall on Covers posts....I'm 5-0 (Of course I have not posted all my picks during that time and have not been perfect, just posted a few that I felt real good about).

Today is going to be my first post on one that I'm going out on a limb.

$1000 on Rangers +150.

I know CC is due to break out of his slump, but I think something is wrong with him....he has had 2 horrendous outings in the playoffs...and he wasn't exactly scorching hot the last month of the season.  With the loss of Texiera....I think the Yankees are going to fold.

Again...this is not one of my ALL IN type bets.....its just my gut feeling the way these two teams have performed in these playoffs.

Monday Night Football Pick

I wish I would have posted all my picks the past couple weeks...but I'll settle for the 4-0 that I've posted in the forums for NCAAF (I'm plus $74k the past two weeks, but was down $58k the previous month, so not that big of deal, but still would look nice on resume).

Tonight I'm going $2000 on Titans -3.

Titans coming off huge win in Dallas (although the way Dallas has played, its less and less impressive).  Jacksonville is a "pretender" team.  Their win against Indy was a blip on the radar.  They are struggling both offensively and defensively.  Knock Garrard around and he folds like a lawnchair.  I expect Tennessee to get in his head and deliver a dominant victory.  Jacksonville doesn't have any "homefield" advantage, so don't be fooled.

Thurs NCAA picks

Well, technically I'm up $37k Since the start of NFL/NCAA seasons....but since I only started posting yesterday:

NCAA 2-0 (+3100)

Todays picks include: West Virginia -10 ($2000)
1st half W. Virginia -6 + 1st half K-State ($1300)

W. Virginia is rounding into form, decent arial/ground games to walk all over tonight.

K-State is the superior team that has a lot to prove after last weeks beating that they took.

I could post all these offensive/defensive statistics, but you seem them 100 times in every other post.
