3:30 Update

MLB

Leans
Miami +159

Slight Edge
Minn +114

Our leans went 0-3 in the NBA on Monday.

Our slight edge in Baseball won easily with Baltimore +103 7-1

Too early for setups but looks like nothing tonight in the NBA.

I do have on a swing trade….500 sso at 100.00. 10 Min before the close sso is at 102.05. So I have about a 2% gain in several days. Its still too early to sell so looks like we will be in the trade for a day or two more if the market keep climbing from here.

Swing Trade

in INVESTING

Last friday I put on a swing trade in SSO at 100.00.

This morning the market is gapping up about 3/4%

I doubt we will be out of this swing today since the market was so oversold it might be a few days before I exit this position.

We will see

11:30 Update

Things have settled down so I am going to post the remainder of setups.

Leans
NBA
Toronto -7
MLB
Colorado +145

Slight Edge
Brooklyn -10.5
San Diego +134

Still might be an NHL setups too early to tell

9:50 Update

NBA
Slight Edge
Indiana -1.5

Saturday both our slight edge setups won. In MLB mets +146 won 7-6 and in the NBA the clippers -10 covered easily.

Today a lot of possibilities…..but since I will be around most of the day I will put them out about 15 to 20 min before game times.

I am still getting quite a bit of emails regarding the meaning of slight edges and leans.

Its rather simple. As we took a beating in MLB the 2nd half of last season I have again revamped the setups in baseball. Remember all of these setups backtest out well…but more importantly remember that backtesting is no guarantee. Thus except for the very best setups I am restricting setups to slight edges and leans with a play or two once in a great while.

Also I had a chance to dig into the NBA in a bit more detail. As in college basketball there are multiple seasons that have different betting characteristics. The last 3 weeks of the NBA season is handicapped much differently then the rest of the season. Thus you most likely have noticed to a switch to primarily favorites. Since this is new again slight edges and leans with a rare play thrown in.

NHL has been profitable but the ROI has been pretty thin each year. So I am just being cautious until I have some time to look the NHL in more detail.

Thats pretty much it. If your inclined to bet these most likely the best approach is to bet 1/2 Unit on the Leans. Although if you handicap independent of these certainly these would add additional input into your picks.

Good Luck Today

2:00 Update

I am out for most of the day now so this is most likely my last update of the day

Slight Edge
MLB
Mets +148

Friday both our leans won. Memphis -14.5 in the NBA was an easy cover and Winn +126 in the NHL was also an easy win.

Slight edges did not fare so well going 1-2. Atlanta in the NBA covered easily winning the game. But our two MLB slight edges both lost.

Today a full slate of games but nothing looks promising right now except for one or two evening games.

In the early games today

Slight Edge
NBA Clippers -10

I will update in the afternoon with any leans or edges.
