My hilton picks were 3-1 on Sunday. With cinci +7 still going in the hilton contest and +7.5 as a play. That brings my Hilton contest record to 10-6-3. I should move up in the standings and If I win this evening move up a lot!
Things are going to settle down now for a month or so until the nba starts. So time to take it easy and concentrate on the weekends.
I will take this time to answer questions about handicapping or whatever. So feel free to send emails or responses on this blog and I will reply.
Lets bring in cinci this evening.

Do you bet on Horses ever?
Never. Its hard enough to try to overcome a 2.5 percent bookie advantage let alone 15 to 20 percent at the track.
I have been doing really well so far in pigskin by fading the public (Wagerline consensus plays) and following your picks. I know it is not realistic to keep winning at this rate, so what adjustments should I be making as the season progresses?
Rick u had briefly spoke about some other handicappers whos opinoins u respect do these handicappers have blogs or web sites
I wouldnt make any adjustments. But I have to say that contrary opinion alone wont do it over the long run. Many times the public is just right!
The other Handicappers I was referring to do not have sites.
Any leans on the upcoming baseball series? I think the Cubs (run differential) and the Indians (2 stud LHP) are great value plays.
Do you use a specific software package?
Have you tried Dan Gordon’s software? I have met Dan, and do not agree with his hard drinking ways. I would thus be surprised if his software was not influenced by alcohol induced chase bets.
No opinion on the upcoming baseball playoffs I usually just take everything 1 game at a time.
I tried out don gordons software last year and overall didnt find it very helpful
Do you use any stat companies like Statfox?
I have used statfox before and find it more helpful then wager line. Although sometimes they are not timely or thorough .
