At 1:00 we have the #2 rated team in the country playing:
57% of the betting is on the road dog with the line moving with the betting from -27 to -26.5. Variables are split on the game with the models neutral on the game. So no edge on either of those but with 57% of the betting on the dog that is a red flag to avoid the dog. So if your in a brave mood you can sweat out -26.5. Myself I see no edge worth betting on . I am passing.
Friday we only had one day and it was in the Ivy league. Cornell +10 and it was never in doubt as Cornell won the game by 11. Its hard to find good plays on Friday with only a handful of games but we found a good one. . We also had a setup on Canisius +1 and it lost.
Well we have 100 college hoop games to choose from today so should be a very busy day. Games begin at 9:00 AM today.
I had a nice email from a long time follower that I would like to share:
“Rick. First off thanks for all you do. I couldn’t be happier with your service. Just curious if there is anyone you follow personally on Twitter or online that’s worth a look. Finally , if there is anything I can do to help support or drive business please let me know.
“Thanks for the support. I really do not follow anyone at all. I have not found anyone that really is long term a positive EV handicapper. Although a number of years ago a person called xxxxx was a handicapper in one of the forums and he was pretty solid. But he now charges and he charges a lot. Somewhere around 1500 per sport.
I have not checked in on him at all anymore but you might try a google search.
As far as driving business my way I am always open to that. If you have any ideas I would be open to hearing them”
And finally his response:
“My pleasure Rick and after using services for 25+ years we’ve come to the same conclusion. You are the first and only so far. ”
This is one of the reasons I do this. I enjoy sharing my work with other handicappers and giving my thoughts along the way. I have been doing this almost 13 years now. Its nice to get this type of email from time to time.
January is behind us now and it was a good one for us.
College hoops: 24-11-1 68.57%
NHL 11-13 +4.06 Units
So we gained 16.06 Units less the vig! I would love to do that every month:)
