Organization of the Month

This month's organization is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

This organization made the cut because one of my old roommates is participating in the "Team in Training" program the organization puts on.

Mission Statement:
The Society's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Seems like a worthy enough cause for me. Help my old roommate get to $5,000. You'll feel good about yourself. I promise.

Scientific Research

I don't think anyone world argue that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Princeton University are some of the top research institutions in the United States, if not the world. I'm sure they're involved in important research like cancer, AIDs, and so on, but it sure is great that resources are getting devoted to "the mysteries of the world" like How Cats Drink.

What an epic waste of time and money.

NBA 2011 Plays

For the 2010-2011 NBA Season I will be keeping my 1Q and 1st 6 minute plays private, but I will be posting 2Q, 3Q, and 4Q plays.

I will also be posting full game plays.

The 2Q/3Q/4Q plays aren't really anything special so I wouldn't recommend following them blindly and risking a large percentage of your bankroll.

The full game plays are generated using a proprietary monte carlo simulation. I don't know how well it will do, but it will be interesting to track.

Plays will be starting after about 10 games per team have been played.

New York Giants -1½ -110 for Game

Douchebag of the Week

Douchebag of the Week

I've always liked Kevin Garnett's basketball game. Always hated the trash that comes out of his mouth.

Kevin Garnett indisputably wins the "douchebag of the week" for his comments at Charlie V. Link.

I particularly like the carefully rephrased trash talk that Garnett came up with. I'm sure in the heat of the moment while his mouth is running it came out as eloquently as he said it did.

5Dimes Promotion Ending

Reminder that the "Official Pure Sabermetrics Sportsbook of the Month" promotion is ending for 5Dimes.

To date, we have had 1 signup. Some real eye popping numbers. We'll try again in a few days with another sportsbook.

Guerrero vs Murphy

Do Guerrero's defensive liabilities offset his offensive value? Is it smart to replace Guerrero for Murphy IF (as Ron Washington claims) it isn't for defensive reasons?

The answer is No and No, but then again Ron Washington makes tons more money than I do.

I also don't have the slightest clue how SF put up that many runs. Not because Cliff Lee is such a super stud post season pitcher, like everyone on ESPN is saying (sample size people), but because the Giants really aren't that good with the bat.

Is NBA Sabermetrics (APBRmetrics) Dead?

Mark Cuban recently posted some thoughts on "NBA Sabermetrics" (he termed it "sabremetrics") : BlogMaverick

It is interesting coming from him, considering he has previously been a proponent of "APBRmetrics" or "NBA Sabermetrics". I think it does stem from his frustration of the inability to form a championship team in Dallas, but he hasn't done bad. A large part of the problem is trading for older, past prime players, a la, Shawn Marion, Jason Kidd, etc.

Sabermetrics work much better in baseball because there is very little "teamwork/play/chemistry" in baseball, it is very much a 1 on 1 game. Basketball is much tougher because you cannot just replace a player and the team won't miss a beat. Compare swapping Albert Pujols with Ryan Howard and Derick Rose with Devin Harris.

Anyways those are just my initial thoughts when reading the post. Feel free to tell me I'm a fool.

Organization of the Week

This "week's" organization is: Feeding America. The website for more information and to donate can be found at: http://feedingamerica.org/.

Mission Statement
Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Our mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

Executive Compensation (Courtesy BBB)
Chief Executive : Vicki Escarra, President and CEO
Compensation: $333,743

Financial Ratings (Courtesy BBB)
Percentage of money received going to programs: 97.7%

Overall, another efficiently run organization serving the needs of America. My only thought is I would like to see the executive compensation come down a little bit.

MLB Record Update

So since I've been getting pretty rocked this year in baseball (down about 25+ units right now) I decided to do a little results oriented look at the plays thus far.

Best ROI by Team:
San Diego Padres and Detroit Tigers

Worst ROI by Team:
Oakland Athletics

Best ROI by units per play:
1.6-1.9

Worst ROI by units per play:
0.5-1.0 and 2.6-4.6 (small sample size)

Best ROI by odds offered:
(-123) -- (+114)

Worst ROI by odds offered (small sample sizes):
(-195) -- (-139) and (+158) -- (+296)

So, what does any of this mean? Probably nothing. I guess we'll see what it looks like at the end of the season.
My biggest concern right now is that I'm not sure that I am making +EV plays, especially with the inability to beat closing lines consistently.

Organization of the Week

Back by popular demand (ok not really)...The Organization of the Week is returning!

If you were here last time this ran, it was a more or less mandatory donation to get picks. This time, however, there is no obligation.
For past organizations of the week see here: Link.

About once a week, I am going to try and profile a charitable organization for you guys. Feel free to make suggestions for the next one. I will be primarily focused on humanitarian aid. Not to say that environmental, animal, or education charities aren't worth it, but those things really don't matter if you don't have food/water/shelter/basic needs.

I'll be looking into the finances of the organization as well as the cause, with a ton of help from Charity Navigator. Some organizations may have religious ties, others may not. I don't discriminate.

Enjoy and give if you would like. It's worth it.

I like SAS (series) at +125, but not at its current +112, so if it trends back up, take it for 1 unit.

NBA Home Court Advantage

I've been watching this for years, how much is Home Court Advantage (HCA) worth in the NBA playoffs? Not so much for the series, but primarily when a team is down 0-2 and the series goes home.

Example 1:
LAL G1 -7.5 (Covered)
LAL G2 -6 (Did not cover)
LAL G3 +3.5

Is a team going home down 0-2 is really 9.5 points better than when they were down 0-1?

Example 2:
PHX G1 -8.5 (Did not cover)
PHX G2 -8.5 (Covered)
PHX G3 PK

So this game for POR should have a little bit less urgency than OKC, so they're only 8.5 points better at home.

I know this basic look at the stats doesn't take into account countless other factors besides HCA, but it's something that just doesn't make sense to me. (I was too lazy to even check the 2009 playoffs and see what the true HCA was, but that's another story) I'll probably get absolutely worked because I'm going to make a few plays here tomorrow, but whatever. Let's see how this pans out.

Thursday Plays

Detroit Tigers -112 (1.4) [5Dimes]
Oakland Athletics +165 (1.8) [5Dimes]
Cleveland Indians +190 (1.2) [5Dimes]
Houston Astros +115 (1.5) [5Dimes]
New York Mets -157 (1.2) [5Dimes]
Cincinnati Reds +105 (1.4) [5Dimes]
Pittsburgh Pirates +143 (1.7) [5Dimes]

All [5Dimes] reduced juice. Hopefully you can get enough down there or you'll have to hit up other books at worse odds.
