in INVESTING,MLB

Nothing has changed in the baseball game so I am going to go with it.

Tuesday MLB Play
1/2 Unit
Milw +136

Our slight edge won with Phil +3 in the NFL last night as they won the game by 7. A great start in the Hilton NFL supercontest going 4-1 each of the first two weeks. Over 1400 entrants and after week 2 I find myself tied for 18th win 64 other entrants. Things should start to thin out soon. Hopefully it won’t be me.

Today in Baseball only 1 game that looks good to me. But the numbers are close enough that I am going to wait for another 45 min to put it out. It could easily turn into no play. Its a 5:00 game.

I will update in a bit

Good Luck Today

Swing trade comments:

I purchased XME at 41.76 a week ago. The ETF continued to slide but had a nice rally today that triggered an exit today at 41.50 for a -.6% loss.

There was some confusion about my sds trade I posted awhile back. I had exited that trade a few weeks ago but did not post it on the blog. I did tweet it out. I also put on an sso trade a few days ago for a nice gain but kept that one to myself. I get pretty busy during the day with handicapping and watching the markets. So if I have time I post trades. If not I just pass on posting them. Very tough to do everything and keep current.

Another swing trade exit: Exit sso at 201

still too early for sports. But swing Trade update. I exited 1250 XME at 41.50 for a small loss on the swing trade.

I will update baseball a bit later

Sunday another 4-1 on my Hilton picks bringing me to 8-2 in the Hilton NFL Super Contest. Great to get out of the gate fast. Usually I am under 500 the first two weeks. Encouraging. My 1 unit picks in the NFL went 1-1 and my 1/2 unit pick pushed.

I am sure you are wondering about the 1 unit play on MInn +3.5. The line jumped to +6.5 after Peterson was out. There was a big move down about an hour before game time that actually pushed the line back to +3. It looked to me it was going to +3 when I put out the play. I really do not consider fundamental information about the players as that is beyond what I do. I use different techniques to find the right side. Minn for me was the right side from the start and this late move convinced me it was still the right side. They did jump in the lead 7-0. But that was the only bright spot in the game.

Looking over baseball nothing looks very good to me and since I am in free fall again in baseball that is a good thing. 0-1 on my 1 unit play and 0-1 on my 1/2 unit play Sunday.

Tonight 1 NFL game:

Phil at Indy

65% of the betting is on San Fran and the line has moved from -3-109 to -3 -101. Variables and Models all point to Phil +3 tonight. At 35% I cannot bring myself to make it a play. I will take another look at it before game time.

However.

Slight edge
NFL
PHIL +3

Good Luck Today

1:00 update

Sunday NFL play
1/2 unit
Jets +7

9:45 Update

Sunday MLB plays
1 unit
Colorado +170
1/2 Unit
cubs +184

Maybe one more

8:00 Update

An interesting observation…there are 6 home favorites in the early NFL Games and all six have the public on the dogs. You do not see that very often! I would be thinking twice before betting the dogs in those games.

Sunday NFL Plays
1 Unit
Cleveland +5.5
Minn +3.5

Not a very good day yesterday. Connecticut set the tone for the day with a turnover runback late in the game to cost us the win. So 0-3 in our 1 unit plays. 1-1 in our half unit plays. 0-1 on our 1/2 unit play in MLB.

Lets see if we can reverse the momentum today in the NFL.

My Hilton picks in the order I liked them at the time:

Cleveland +6.5
Kansas City +13
Jets +8.5
San Diego +6
Minn +3

My fifth pick was between Minn +3 and Oakland +3. I usually put my picks in friday before I head to play poker. Of course 1 hour after I got to the poker game I took a look at the lines and saw a bit jump on New Orleans only to find out the announcement that Peterson was not playing. The line jumped to +6.5 but has now come down to +5 +100. That is encouraging if any encouragement can be found. Well….lets see how my luck is running today!

Hilton top 5:

New England -3 (of course and by a very wide margin)
San Diego +6
Buffalo +1
San Fran -6.5
Detroit +3

The top 5 fade went 3-2 last week. So off to a good start again this season.

% Public numbers this morning in the NFL:

New Orleans 83
New England 82
Green Bay 75
Seattle 73
Denver 72
San Fran 71
Houston 69
arizona 68
Indy 66
detroit 65
Tampa 64
Jacks 58
Miami 56
Atlanta 55
dallas 53

Should be a few plays today in the NFL

The discussion of the NFL was very active at the poker tables yesterday. There was no game that really stood out among the players as great plays. However…….someone asked me who I liked…..And I said perhaps the best of the day was Cleveland……you could hear a pin drop. Not one word was said. So my poker player fade of the day is Cleveland:) Just happens that the poker player fade was against New Orleans last week also.

Still looking over MLB

Good Luck Today
