LSU has us off to a winning start this week.

In my Week 3 Analysis the pick was LSU straight up only if getting points.  We rode LSU to a winning Week 3 start in a ho-hum workmanlike game.  LSU usually has a hard time covering point spreads in this type of game … Continue reading

Week 2 – It’s a Winner, We are Net Positive for the Year

We bordered on having a real good week. We had a couple of teams vicitimized by their opponents scoring late to cover point spreads. Virginia Tech and Syracuse got lazy, scoring enough points to win but not even a thought … Continue reading

Week 3 Comments – Week 2 was a winner, net positive for both weeks.

For all practical purposes Week 1 was a breakeven wildly fluctuating opening weekend. Week 2 was a solid winner, and we expect Week 3 to keep improving. We have 12 teams giving points and 7 teams taking points as high … Continue reading

8 out of 13 for the afternoon, winning is what it is all about.

My previous blog gave 13 teams for the afternoon, 8 of which covered the point spread giving us a solid winning weekend. Two losers, Virginia and Connecticut, failed to cover by the slimmest of margins or we could have hit … Continue reading

Tonight’s play and weekend comments.

Take Missouri and the points.  They match up athletic wise extremely well while AZ State played a weak UC Davis team as a 37.5 point favorite.  Missouri plays passing teams well, they see a lot of them in the wide … Continue reading

What you don’t play can be very important.

We did not play the Wisconsin/UNLV game for a reason.  Our research showed Wisconsin covered the spread only 40% of the time in this situation, plus the home team and favorites bias took the spread even higher. UNLV had a limited … Continue reading

Heading to cash my tickets after a 2-0 start.

When you play the percentages with us you put yourself in a position to win.  Mississippi State was no surprise, beating Memphis handily and really no sweat.  Syracuse at -6.5 was a thriller.   At the half we were beat handily, … Continue reading
