Cinci went from a boring 7.5 innings to a pretty exciting game! Down 3-0 Cinci tied it up in the bottom of the 8th. Then in the bottom of the 10th with based loaded and no outs it was looking like it was our game. But an infield ground ball and a infield popup and now all of a sudden there was two outs. A 2 out base hit took care of that…and we got a 4-3 win.
The game obviously could of gone either way. The breaks just happened to go our way on Saturday.
I really enjoyed the feedback on this pick. This is what the internet is all about. Sharing ideas and discussing opinions.
A few other comments I would like to respond to that I think can be instructive:
“I’m sure even he would say to cap the games yourself and don’t blindly follow anybody”
I have been saying that for the 6 years I have been posting on this blog. Its never a good idea to blindly follow anyone. After all that person might go off the deep end as I did during conference play in ncaa baskets:)
“I saw FL go from -138 to -121 at BM, so wouldn’t that mean the public is betting CIN, so the squares were betting CIN?”
That is a misconception a lot of bettors have regarding line moves and public money. I would say more often then not line moves reflect what the public is doing. But a significant portion of the time it does not. In the case of Fla it did not. The public money was very heavy on Fla. even though the line went the other way.
One favor I would like to ask of the readers and posters. Please lets keep it civil. We all have the same interest and passion for handicapping sports. We are all in this together! Trying to overcome the odds:) There is a lot to learn from each other and each others comments about the games. Name calling or just being rude tends to inhibit posters from posting there comments and ideas. That is the last thing any serious handicapper would want to happen.
Well I am going to head back to bed!
