4:30 Update

A tough 3-1 today in the Hilton picks. Now I know why I had decided not to play Jacksonville again. They had their chances with first and goal at the 1…but I guess they felt they should pass every down rather then punch it in. Nothing left for me tonight in the NFL.

Looking over the remaining hoops most likely nothing until the 7:00 game. Things can change quite a bit before then but I will be watching the numbers.

Not a very good day Saturday in College Hoops. Things just didn’t go our way. Sides were 0-2 and totals were 0-2. On the bright side Ncaa Football Sides went 2-1. All were 1/2 Unit Plays. Our setups went 1-1 losing the college football setup on Rutgers but winning the NHL setup with Arizona +156.

Lets get the NFL going now:

I am 33-22 going into week 12 or 60%. I am 3 pts out of 30th place which is needed to cash. I need to get going now to have any chance at a cash as 60% will not get any money this season.

My Hilton Contest Picks this week in the order I liked them at the time:

Minn +9.5
Wash +9.5
Jacksonville +14
Miami +7
Baltimore +3.5

All the lines have moved my way but thats only slightly comforting. Note I included Jacksonville this week. I just would not feel right not taking another beating on Jacksonville one more time this season:) I got off them for a number of weeks now and ever played against them…but I could not resist +14.

No poker player fade today……when it came to football this weekend not a peep. Except of course for the cinch of the day in college football being Ohio St -35. When I took a look at the game out of curiosity they were losing but they squeaked out a 17 pt win. I did make a wager with another player and I took minn +8.5 and they took Cinci +2. You could see a smile on his face when I picked Minn….He almost was not going to pick a game and just take Green Bay. I guess that was most likely the game he was going to choose…of course!

Hilton top 5 this weekend:


I am with them on Baltimore and not fading any of their picks. Which is probably a good thing as the fades of the top 5 are now 23-33. Looks like no easy money this year fading the top 5:( Also note that the betting in the top 5 has changed quite a bit from taking big public favorites to more sharp action. This would mean that you will need to look elsewhere for easy money….If you find it ..please let me know right away!

Betting % for today

Green Bay 82
Indiana 75
NE 74
San Fran 74
Denver 74
Dallas 73
Bears 64
Atl 57
Cinci 55
Ariz 54
Phil 53
San Diego 52

Reverse Line Moves:
Miami from +7.5 to +6.5
Minn +10 to +7.5

As far as betting any of the games today…..the lines have moved quite a bit and so far may not be any plays today…..perhaps some setups.

I will update later this morning.

Good Luck Today
