Happy New Year

To keeping the heater on

Monday Plays

Indiana -1.0 +110 (1.5)
I was dumb and made this before checking Jamaal Tinsley's status. If he is not playing, do not bet this line. If he is playing, then it is a 1.5 unit play. I am going to count it in my record either way.

Detroit -11.5 -106 (4)
Portland Trailblazers +7½ -105 for Game (2)

I believe I have sent out passwords to everyone that has paid. If you have not received a password please send me an email.

To those of you who (or is it whom?) have not subscribed please do so soon to ensure that the transaction will go as planned so you do not miss any picks.

If you choose not to subscribe, best of luck to you. Feel free to check back on how I am doing. Everything will be made public after the games start so you can check up on me to see when I hit a nice downswing.

Thursday Results

0-2-0 (-5.66 units)

FREAKING BOSTON gave up 6 uncontested points in the last 2 minutes to allow Seattle to cover. Including a wide open dunk with 3 seconds left. Wonderful.

One of the best days ever for me. Round robin 3,4 free play parlay hit and had a nice arb on Det -6.0 +115.

The current +63.91 units for this season is a new all-time high. Downswing who?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

The Future of Pure Sabermetrics

I have done some thinking and this is how everything will work after December 31.

Access to picks after December 31, 2007 will require a donation. The picks will be password protected until after all of the games start.

I am recommending a donation of 1 unit per week. Payments are accepted for 1 week blocks (Sunday - Saturday).

I believe this is more than reasonable because I have been looking around and Covers.com charges $125/week.

Minimum donation per week: $10
Maximum donation per week: $125 (I'm a nice guy)

Previous thoughts and details regarding this decision can be found here.

Since January 1, 2008 starts on a Tuesday, I will be giving a free half-week for those who sign up prior to then. That means you will get January 1-12 at the price of 1 week!

As an added bonus, I will do everything in my power to get plays posted by 11am PST (hopefully around 9am PST) depending on the day, but I also plan on posting lines that look favorable before 1am PST the night before for those of you who will not be able to check during the day.

Also, on any given week that you subscribe, if I do not finish with a +ROI, the next week is free. It doesn't get much better than that.

To purchase a subscription please visit the Subscribe to Picks page.

Sunday Results

3-0-0 (+6.80 units)

Much better.

Sunday Plays

Golden State 2.5 +108 (2.5)
Detroit -7.5 +100 (2)
Boston -9.5 +105 (2)

Stupid Marcus Camby can't decide if he is going to play or not and I won't be around for tip-off so there won't be a play on ether side, even though I'd like there to be.

Record Update

This downswing has welcomed me with a beating. Remember that downswings are normal and expected. If you can't handle a 13 unit loss on any given day, I recommend lowering your unit size.

Saturday Results
1-8-0 (-12.69 units)
Worst day in recent memory. Probably 2-4 of these units could have been adverted with correct player injury news, but covers.com unfortunately rocked me. Also, betting early allowed me to get better lines, but not reliable player status.

Week Results
18-19-0 (-0.60 units; ROI: -0.88%)

Dec Results
66-46-1 (+50.69 units; ROI: 23.98%)

YTD Results
91-74-1 (+45.16 units; ROI: 15.12%)

Despite today's loss of 13 units and the down day on Thursday, I only finished down .60 units. That's really not that bad, considering the previous weeks were all +10 units each.
Also for December I'm up 51 units. I will take that any day of the week. I'll also take the 15% ROI YTD.

Now, I am tired of losing and it is time to turn it around.

Friday, December 21, 2007

Saturday Plays

Charlotte 6.5 +103 (2.5)
Golden State -3.0 +107 (2.5)
Minnesota 11.0 -108 (2)
Toronto 9.5 +106 (2.5)
Utah 1.0 +100 (2.5)
Utah +102 (.5)
Washington 6.0 -100 (1.5)
Washington 6.0 -104 (1.5)

A lot of dogs. Good stuff.

I only got some of my bets down at the better prices, so I made 2 on the same team (Utah and Washington), if that makes any sense.

Added Play:
Chicago 1.5 -102 (2)

Friday Results and Picks for Saturday

4-3-0 (+4.00 units)
Much better.
The Pacers suck. So do the Knicks.

I am busy for most of Saturday, so I may not get plays up. I may post a few early in the morning or tonight and then add to them before tip off if I am back in time.

Friday Plays

Time to turn it around.

Thursday Results

1-2-0 (-2.23 units)

I told you a downturn was coming, figures it would be around now.
Can I not lose a play in the 4th quarter? The end of the 3rd quarter and 4th quarter of the Laker game was so incredibly ugly I can't describe it (think 16-0 Cleveland run).
However, the Houston/Denver game was really good.

I have made some modifications to my system, including increasing the kelly sizes of the bets, which should increase the number of plays, but reduce the ROI. Wait! Isn't reducing the ROI a bad thing? Not if you can make more +EV plays that will increase your bankroll. There are +EV plays I am missing out on because of the smaller kelly size.

I highly recommend that you all check out the post notification feature I installed on this site. It will send you an email the same minute I post, notifying you of new plays.

Wednesday Results and Thursday Plays

2-3-0 (-3.02 units)
Much more realistic. Except how the hell did Toronto only score 13 points in the 4th quarter? That game was locked up. But then again, how did Atlanta come back in OT?

Thursday NBA
Los Angeles Lakers -2 -106 for Game (1.5)
Miami Heat -2 -107 for Game (2)
Houston 8.0 -102 (1.5)

Error Using Internet Explorer

For some reason, the comment page and sometimes the homepage do not load correctly if you are using IE. I'll look into this and hopefully find a solution.

Everything loads fine using firefox, which I would recommend over IE any day.

Update: I have fixed this problem, I think...

Future Picks

This is what I have decided to do about posting picks. I am thinking of December 31st as the last day I will post picks free to everyone.

I will continue to post picks, but they will be password protected until the games start. This will allow me to keep a public record and also gives me some incentive to continue posting. To obtain the password for the plays, I will take a payment/donation of whatever you feel is fair for the picks. I am going to recommend 1 unit per week because I do not want to cut into your winnings. The password will change weekly.

If it turns out that I am not making enough using this method, I will create a minimum payment size per week. Payment will be accepted via Paypal so you can pay by credit card or bank account. I do not have a PokerStars account, but if there is enough interest in doing a stars transfer for payment, I will make one.

I will accept payment for one or two week blocks.
My incentive to keep doing well is that if I have a down week, (-.0001 units), I will provide the next week free for the subscribers.

Do not expect the hot run to continue. The general rule is a professional handicapper has about a 5% ROI longterm, so I would expect something around there. If this is going to disappoint you, I'm sorry to break the news to you that there is no endless fountain of money and you probably shouldn't subscribe.

Please vote to let me know what methods of payment would be acceptable.

[poll=1]

Post Subscription

I have added a new feature onto this site. If you subscribe, the website will automatically send you an email notification a minute after I make a post.

I have no idea if it works or anything like that, but it sounds like a cool feature if you are interested.

Update: So as of now it is not working. I'll work on it today and see what I can do.

Update: Yea screw that. Too much work. Sorry, but you'll just have to keep checking every hour for picks.

Update: I have tried about 30 email plugins and it looks like I found one that works. Post subscription may be possible!

Update: It looks like it is fully functional now, minus the really bad spelling found all over the place that I will fix soon.
And I already lost 2 plays tonight :-(.

Wednesday Plays

Sacramento Kings +6½ -109 for Game (2)
Atlanta Hawks -1½ -106 for Game (2)
Washington -5.0 +108 (2.5)
Toronto 3.0 -101 (2.5)
Utah -5.0 +104 (2)

Something new: I bet against Portland.
I got a freeplay bonus at 5dimes and used some of it on a 2,3,4,5 round robin on these plays. Hopefully the hot streak will continue. This would be a sad time for it to stop.

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Tuesday Results

3-1-0 (+3.86 units)

I may be taking totals out of my plays. It really makes no sense to me how I am killing the spreads, but not totals. I use the same numbers to determine which are plays, but I feel that the total bets may be -EV.

For those of you counting, yes that is 20-0 against the spread since December 12.

Site Upgrade

Over the next week I am going to try and apply some updates, so you may see some weird layouts and errors on the page. Let me know if you notice any problems.

I just installed a plugin that allows for page caching server side, resulting in faster load times. Hopefully it will help.

Tuesday Plays

Bulls - Total Points Under 102.5 (-115)
Nets - Total Points Under 96.5 (-115)
Los Angeles Lakers +2 -104 for Game (2.5)
Sacramento 5.0 +101 (1.5)

Monday, December 17, 2007

Monday Results

5-2-0 (+5.48 units)

I am KILLING the spreads. KILLING. There is no way this is sustainable.
Look at this stat:
Spreads from 12/12-12/17
18-0-0 (+37.09 units; ROI: 99.36%)
That is not possible. Well, it shouldn't be.

Not that it matters, but there is one moneyline win that isn't counted in the spread calculations.

Oh, and I was super super lucky today with Mil/Cle. Needed 1 OT for the Mil over to be good and 2OT for the game total to be over.

Word of advice: If you are following these picks, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE use good bankroll management. Do not wager over your unit size because you want to jump on this hot streak. There is no easier way to go bankrupt than using too high unit sizes when the downswing hits.

Monday Plays

New Orleans Hornets team total under 93 -110 for Game
Milwaukee Bucks team total over 92½ -115 for Game
Utah Jazz team total under 98 -110 for Game
Golden State -4.0 +100
Over 193.5 (MIL/CLE) -108
Portland 1.0 +103 (3.5)
Over 203.0 (PHX/SA) -102

I accidentally bet the Mil/Cavs game over twice with the Bucks team total and overall game total, but I still think they're both good bets.
Possible play in the Ind/NYK game depending on J. O'neal's status.

Sunday, December 16, 2007

Sunday Results

2-0-0 (+4.00 units)

Ok, so now it's getting ridiculous. To put this in perspective, I have not had a down day since 12/7/07 and the next one before that was 12/2/07. From 11/28-12/16 my record is: 60-30-1 (+67.79 units; ROI: 40.03%).

I am moving up to a full unit size on Monday. Which probably means that it's downswing time.

I am also not sure how long I will continue to post picks. I may take this system completely private or just for a select few in the future, but I haven't made any decisions yet.

Sunday Plays

Portland 8.5 -105 (2)
Los Angeles (L) -7.0 -106 (2)

Here's a weird fact: The Lakers are better without Kobe Bryant on the floor.
Even though his status is questionable, this is a play whether he plays or not.

Update to System

I have made a lot of changes to my system, including adjusting defensive and offensive power ratings for strength of schedule and the ability to adjust for key injuries on a team (ex/ Lebron James). I hope that this allow me to make more +EV bets in basketball.
I am going to see how this system goes for the next week and if everything turns out well, increase my personal unit size to the regular amount.

Plays Posted Sunday

As promised, I will begin posting plays again on Sunday.

I highly recommend that you carefully consider putting any money on these plays as there is a very small sample size right now. I will do my best to adjust for injuries or other lineup changes.

Thursday Results and Friday Plays

Friday NBA
Chicago -8.5 -102 (1.5)
Minnesota Timberwolves +8½ -102 for Game (1.5)

Thursday Plays

Phoenix Suns team total under 117 -110 for Game
Seattle Supersonics +10½ -102 for Game
Houston Rockets +4 -102 for Game (1.5)

If I don't end up positive for today, I will probably take about 2 weeks off then use current year statistics.

Wednesday Results

Well...this has not been a good start. Not many people can go 0-5 on any given day. Bulls blew it in OT and Seattle sucked hard in the 4th quarter. Even so, I think something may be off with my pace on the Spurs.

0-5-0 (-6.10 units)

San Antonio at Memphis Total Under 200.0 for Game +110

There is also a 1 unit play on SA, but I can't make myself bet on favorites more than -200. There is no play on the spread.

I highly recommend taking these plays with a grain of salt. It is under a brand new unproven system, so we'll see how this goes.

Portland Trail Blazers/San Antonio Spurs under 189 -110 for Game (2)

Future Plays

As of now, I am not going to have any future plays on regular season wins for the NBA. Mostly the reason being I can't find any really favorable lines because of the lines all being around -115 to -125. Not worth tying money up for.

Monday, October 15, 2007

NBA

I am semi-hard at work on a new basketball system. I don't have any form of public record for basketball, but I do believe that basketball is my best sport. We'll see if that is true or not.

I plan on having futures plays up in the next week or so, probably around when bodog gets their season wins lines up. Stay tuned.

I will probably not make any picks until the morning from now on so I can get both 5in and game lines. This means that we will miss out on the overnight reduced juice from 5Dimes.

Or if someone can tell me where US customers can get 5in overnight lines then I will be able to post as usual.

Next Week

I will be out of town without internet access for the next week. Probably not a bad thing considering the bad run I've had for the past two weeks.

If you will die before I get back, you may want to jump on to TexML's Picks. He's been running pretty hot recently, but I don't know how he determines his picks or unit size, so good luck.
