On Saturday, the Sooners beat TCU 102-97 in overtime in an exhausting affair and now will  be in a little bit of letdowns situation, vs a revenge minded foe that clobbered them last season by a 81 -51 count. Take the points here with the hungry home team.

Kansas State is 2-0 SU l/2 games here in this series and are 10-3 SU L/13 at home in this series.

This tilt according to my own numbers has value taking the underdog . I know Pittsburgh is rebuilding and not  as cohesive as they once were, but this point spread is beatable vs a Syracuse side is also not playing very well as is evident by having lost four straight games.

CBB road team (PITTSBURGH) - off 2 consecutive losses of 10 or more to conference rivals, playing only their 3rd game in a week are 53-22 ATS L/5 seasons for a 70% conversion rate for bettors.

Louisville is off a run and gun affair that they won vs Virginia Tech last time out by a 94-86 count and now I'm betting they will be in a letdown situation, after that tilt. It must be noted that LOUISVILLE is 0-6 ATS  L/6  in road games after a combined score of 155 points or more were scored, and 9-23 ATS  L/31 after playing a game where both teams score 80 points. Meanwhile, Notre Dame despite of losing key cog Bonzie Colson to injury are still a viable side to back on their own home floor where they are 6-0 SU/ATS L/6 vs Louisville.

Injury update: Irish  G Matt Farrell is upgraded to probable Tuesday vs Louisville ( Ankle ).

LOUISVILLE is 1-10 ATS  L/11  in road games versus excellent ball handling teams - committing 12 or less  turnovers/game after 15+ games over the last few seasons. LOUISVILLE is 0-6 ATS  L/6  in road games versus excellent ball handling teams - committing 12 turnovers/game.

The Islanders are off a 5-4 OT win vs the Montreal Canadians at the Molson Center last time out, and should have plenty left in the tank to deal with the struggling NJ Devils here tonight on their own home ice. Yes, this will be the Isles third game since the weekend, but they are off a bye week, and be more than ready to play here again on short rest. The Isles are a fun team to watch, via some explosive offensive hockey, and you have to be able to outscore them, or have your goalie stand on his head to beat them. Yes, the Islanders D, has shown some troubling issues because of their style of play , but the Devils are lacking in offensive weapons except for Taylor Hall, and are at a disadvantage here tonight. Note: The Devils suffered their  sixth straight loss Saturday, when they returned from their "bye week" with a 5-3 loss to the visiting Philadelphia Flyers. Their  D has now  allowed 26 goals during that skid, which is not a good omen against an Islanders team with the leagues 2nd most productive offense.

Devils are 0-6 in their last 6 road games.Devils are 0-8 in the last 8 meetings in New York.

NEW JERSEY is 2-14 ATS  L/16  in road games after 3 or more consecutive losses .NY ISLANDERS are 15-8 ATS  L/23 after playing a road game this season.

Toledo enters this game with momentum as their 6-1 run would indicate and have revenge on board for a MAC Tournament loss to Ohio,(67-66 ) that ended their campaign last season . Overall series history favors the Rockets as they are 10-2 ATS L/12 meetings and have been money makers in the underdog role going 8-1 ATS and once again get the nod on a pickem line. It must also be noted that Toledo took out Central Michigan on the road last time as dogs, which sets up a favorable trend that has seen the Rockets go 13-2 ATS L/15 in road games off an upset win as a road pupp.

Ohio's HC Phillips is 1-11 ATS L/12 versus teams who are called for 17 or less fouls/game like Toledo. Rockets HC Kowalczyk is 28-13 ATS as a road underdog of 3 points or less or pick in his career.

The Orlando Magic have struggled for most of this season, and are on a 7 game losing streak, but  have been fairly competitive of late with  five losses coming  by single digits with the  average margin of defeat clicking in at  8.4 ppg during the skid. Meanwhile, Minnesota is in top form and off a 5 game home stand where they won all their games. But it's not always easy transitioning in cohesive fashion from a  comfortable road environment to a   hostile one on the road, especially after an extended period of time in your own digs. It must also be noted that the Wolves have lost 2 in a row on the road, and 3 of their L/4 away  and have  Houston on deck next. This combination could have the TWolves looking ahead and feeling just a bit to confident , which gives Orlando a viable chance at an upset and more importantly a cover.


The Wolves have covered only 2 of 10 games as non conference chalk this season. Orlando has covered 7 of the L/8 meetings in this series as dogs.

MINNESOTA is 16-32 ATS L/48 versus struggling  teams - outscored by their opponents by 3+ points/game.MINNESOTA is 18-43 ATS L/61 after scoring 120 points or more.

SERVICE BIO

Experience & Awards

I have been wagering professionally on sports and horse racing for 30 years. 

My picks have been documented for 18 years.  I have earned numerous top 10 Basketball and Football finishes.  

My college football picks have profited in 16 of my last 17 seasons. In 2011 I went 68% for the year.

I was the 2009 NFL Handicapper of the Year in 2009  in a prestigous event.  I won the Ultimate Football NFL Championship in 2006.  In 2014 I overcame a slow start to finish 59-32 65%!  

I have been an NBA World Champion with 7 winning seasons the last 8 years.  

I also continue to beat the College Hoops book makers with a high volume attack on a yearly basis. 

Handicapping Approach

I have a firm belief in my systems.  There is not a sport I feel I can not beat.  

My handicapping can be best referred to as the 'The Smart Money Approach". I leave no stone unturned.  I have a large database of information and statistics.  I also take into consideration injuries, current and historical trends, and form.  I also factor in the weather, surface conditions, and line movement.

Sports Betting Is An Investment

Many gamblers offer causal explanations for long runs of good and bad performance.  The same is true of financial analysts.  The records of bettors and investors show the same variable successes and failures. 

Both investment opportunities show significant variables and both can give the investor an advantage.  You need to do the proper research to consider all the facts. If you do so a long term profit is more than attainable.

I think sports betting is even better than the stock market.  The investor/bettor has much more control over his funds. You can take a short break, and almost always know your bankroll has not been untouched.

In the markets you are leaving your 401K and other mutual investments in the hands of a volatile marketplace. Plus, you are being torched for huge handling fees by brokers on individual investments. These fees would make sports book managers drool.

I am not saying it is easy making a living from sports betting. But, the small percent who do consistently beat the books have a much better rate of return than that of any market investor!

This is the outlook I have on every wager I place in the sports wagering markets. I take my portfolio very seriously!

Money Management

To be a successful and profitable sports bettor you must always have a long term goal. Set that standard before you begin.  You need to set aside a fairly substantial bankroll.

If you want to be conservative you would wager no more than 1-2% of your bankroll per game.  No more than 3% on the best bets.

This might seem a little on the low side.  But, this is a long and turbulent battle with the books.  You will be happy that you practiced good money management and frugality.

Here are some additional guidelines I recommend.

1. Shop for your best possible lines (rogue lines) from the most reputable sources.

2. Stay disciplined and do not stray from recommended bankroll allocation on individual wagers. Chasing your wagers never a good idea.

3. Always keep in mind that your bankroll is your life line.  It must be treated the same way you would treat finances allocated for any business venture.

4. Buy off the hook on key numbers.

5. Understanding the importance and the art of middling.

6. Keep a record of all your wagers and results and use them as part of over all statistical data base.

These are some important factors that will help you in your quest for long term profits.

I leave you with a thought from the late great Jimmy the Greek. The house does not beat the player, it just gives him the opportunity to beat himself.

*Almost all selections have the same allocated bankroll %(which equals 1 betting unit). Strong selections will see our single game wagers doubled.  These plays are rated as GENERALS CLUB selections.
