We won our nhl play on tues with buffalo winning 7-3 as a +115 dog. Buffalo was behind 3-1 but scored 6 unanswered goals!

Today a full schedule and I expect some plays later today. I will post as they develop.

For those of you that are interested in investing there is a new book that just came out that puts together how you can use the internet to your advantage in making your investing decisions. As it happens chapter 2 is about following the top hedge funds and how to do it:)

The book is Tradestream your way to profits by Zack Miller

I just started reading it..but in looking it over it seems you will learn quite a bit by the information that is available in the book.

Now….. I have a question that has perplexed me for some time that I want to ask to see if anyone has any insights.

Cris puts out overnight totals in college hoops on a few of the games. These numbers are about as solid as you can get. Then in the morning Pinnacle is the first to put out numbers on the rest of the totals, Most are solid but there are always a handful of games where the total is off by 10 or more points. It takes a minute or so but the number moves to where it should of been put out in the first place.

When I first noticed this I was up early trying to bet the early number and playing middles. Often times I would have 10 pt or more middles on some of the games. I did very well with this but there are a number of people like me waiting for the openers and you only have seconds to make a wager …since its the first one in that gets that number. Also Pinnacle only allowed me $100 dollar limit on the openers in the morning. Sometimes 250.

My question is why? Why does a book like Pinnacle put out numbers on some games that are so far off? I cant imagine there models are that inefficient.

In any event….I am perplexed…and maybe some of you have some thoughts on this.

    Pinnacle is happy to let a few tiny bets do the work for them and pound the numbers into shape. It's probably just as cost effective for them as it would be to hire someone to make better openers.
