Friday we had 2 plays and went 2-0.
In College Hoops, we had Grambling +10.5 covering 57-62. While in the NBA we had Denver +2.5 winning the game outright 119-99.
Today the schedule gets a bit lighter as the conference tournaments are winding down to get ready for the NCAA Tournament. This, in my opinion, is the most exciting time for college hoops.
Years ago I went to the final 4 and watched Al Mcquire win the tournament in Atlanta, Ga. Marquette was up against some powerhouses in the final 4. If my memory is correct it was Kansas, N.Carolina and N.Caronlina Charlotte as the other 3 teams.
No plays have been sent out yet today.
I have been getting quite a few questions about the MLB special. I will get something posted tomorrow with the details. For those of you that went with it last season, it is exactly the same with the exception that any corrections in the results need to be in within a week from the game finishing. Once a week goes by that record is going to be the official one whether it is for or against me.
Last year, a few subscribers and I, spent an inordinate amount of time going through everything. As it turns out we uncovered I made a few mistakes the end result was I made more than I had posted!
But this year we will not have to go through that. Way too much work to go through months of games.
I will be using the Pinnacle line for MLB this season as I did last season. That is exactly what I do for the NHL. Most of the time you will be able to get very close to that line. Sometimes even better depending how many outs you have. If you do not have a book that posts a 10c line you’re going to have some problems finding outs to bet.
MLB has turned into a 10c line in most books now. Even vegas except for a few spots have 10c lines.
My suggestion is again to find at least 2 outs. One that is a “sharp book” and the other that is a “public” book. This will give you not only a perspective on where the public is on the game but also 2 outs to wager. Ideally, you want to have as many public books as you can find to wager at. Some move their lines much further than others.
This alone can bring you at least 10 units by the end of the season.
If you want to find which books are public all you need do is go to a site that has all the books lines posted and see which are slanted to one side compared say to Pinnacle or 5 dimes. You will see exactly what I am talking about.
I am optimistic for the MLB season as we were +13 units last season with the swings easy to handle. 10 to 20 unit swing top to bottom was about it. That is nothing when it comes to swings in sports betting money line sports.
In addition, I made some changes after the first 4 to 5 weeks last season that made a big difference. So I will be starting out this season with those in place.
And do not forget the “Big Move Games”! These were as predictive a factor as you could ever find as to where the line was heading by game time.
So a lot to be optimistic about in MLB this season. But we will have to wait another 3 weeks or so:)
Good Luck Today
