We had a busy day on Saturday with 7 one unit plays going 3-4. In College hoops, we went 3-2 and in the NHL 0-2.
Week 15 in the NFL is on deck and I am sinking in my results. After a monster start, I have speedily dropped out of contention with a 31-36-3 record. In addition, my one unit NFL picks on sides are 12-10. It’s amazing how the various sports shift back and forth for the lead in the most units won for the year. Once the NFL was #1 for me and the easiest to handicap. As I have mentioned this change has been in the works steadily over the last 5 years or so to where now what were once laughers are nailbiters and in some instances laughers the other way:)
But that is the nature of sports betting. It’s very fluid and if your dogmatic and wish to fight the fluid nature of sports betting believe me when I tell you it’s a fight you will not win!
Today my picks in the Hilton Contest in the order I liked them at the time:
Rams +16 (Lost)
The first 3 are my traditional handicapping results from there. Denver although it appears to fall into my universe it is really on the border. And Carolina with 55% of the wagering on them is a view similar to the one I am taking laying off of San Fran.
Yes, I again laid off San Fran this week despite the fact by my handicapping San Fran is the top pick of the day! So I preach follow your instruments and not what your mind is telling you!
And you would think me being an instrument rated pilot I would never deter from that rule:) But I stand by my thinking that they have Quarterback problem right now that is unsolvable and until they get it fixed San Fran is a bad wager. Let’s see what happens today.
The Hilton top 5 today:
The Hilton top 5 is on a roll going 4-0-1 last week and now at 30-37-3.
The % numbers for today:
Tampa Bay 67
Animal spirits are getting frothy today after many of these high priced teams have been covering the past few weeks. You have 5 teams over 80% with another 2 over 75%. Only 3 games are under 60%. Will it be this easy for the public today….I suspect an awakening coming very soon:)
So far today I have sent out 1 one unit play.
Good Luck Today
