9:50 Update

Slight Edge
Indiana -1.5

Saturday both our slight edge setups won. In MLB mets +146 won 7-6 and in the NBA the clippers -10 covered easily.

Today a lot of possibilities…..but since I will be around most of the day I will put them out about 15 to 20 min before game times.

I am still getting quite a bit of emails regarding the meaning of slight edges and leans.

Its rather simple. As we took a beating in MLB the 2nd half of last season I have again revamped the setups in baseball. Remember all of these setups backtest out well…but more importantly remember that backtesting is no guarantee. Thus except for the very best setups I am restricting setups to slight edges and leans with a play or two once in a great while.

Also I had a chance to dig into the NBA in a bit more detail. As in college basketball there are multiple seasons that have different betting characteristics. The last 3 weeks of the NBA season is handicapped much differently then the rest of the season. Thus you most likely have noticed to a switch to primarily favorites. Since this is new again slight edges and leans with a rare play thrown in.

NHL has been profitable but the ROI has been pretty thin each year. So I am just being cautious until I have some time to look the NHL in more detail.

Thats pretty much it. If your inclined to bet these most likely the best approach is to bet 1/2 Unit on the Leans. Although if you handicap independent of these certainly these would add additional input into your picks.

Good Luck Today
