Louisville vs. Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech
-4 -106
in 3h

When these teams played back in their first meeting this season, The Cardinals took a 94-86 victory and now in pay back mode I expect Virginia Tech will return the favor. Louisville has lost 5 of their L/7 overall and have lost 6 of their 10 road games this season, and  currently fade material in their current form.

VIRGINIA TECH is 7-0 ATS l/7 revenging a same season loss vs opponent/. VIRGINIA TECH is 30-12 ATS  L/42 when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%). Vtech is 16-0 SU and 11-1 ATS versus .700 or less opposition this season.

VIRGINIA TECH is 15-6 ATS  L/21 vs. good free throw shooting teams - making 72% or better of their attempts.

LOUISVILLE is 0-8 ATS  L/8  in road games after failing to cover 4 or 5 of their last 6 against the spread over the last few seasons.

Spurs vs Nuggets
+3½ -110 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

The San Antonio Spurs went into the all star break losing  five of their last six games and now the pundits are jumping off the band wagon. I'm saying not so quick. This franchise has just to much pedigree and experience to be dismissed so easily and must be respected here tonight as well rested  road underdogs. I know the experts are currently in love with the Denver Nuggets, after   having  won nine of their last 12, but this is still a team that has proven itself inconsistent and needs a little more positive momentum to be looked upon with such fondness from the media. I understand we live in the world of instant gratification and what have you done for me lately attitude, but I'm still a believer in Popovich and company and that get my backing here tonight . The Nuggets did beat the Spurs in their last meeting on Feb 13 by a 117-109 count, but the Spurs are 8-3 SU/ATS with same season revenge in this series, and his Spurs are 11-3 SU when playing on 6 or more days rest.

 Spurs are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS loss.Nuggets are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.Spurs are 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings in Denver.

NBA Favorites (DENVER) - an excellent offensive team (102 PPG or more ) against a struggling  defensive team (98-102 PPG), after a combined score of 215 points or more 2 straight games are 59-104 ATS L/5 seasons for a go against conversion rate of 64% for bettors on the blind.

Wolves vs Rockets
+8½ -110 at BMaker
Play Type: Free

Houston is a explosive team, but Minnesota have been up trending in my power rankings charts all season long  , and are more than capable of being competitive in their current form. You have to remember, that Houston has been sub par from a betting perspective at home this season, covering just 11 of 29 games, and have failed to cover 5 of their L/6 at home here in the Toyota Center. I know that The Wolves got clobbered 116-98 by the mighty Rockets earlier this season, but now in payback mode, I'm betting on the young men form the Land of Lakes, to cover this number tonight, and make the Rockets work very hard for a win. Note: Houston is 5-0 SU L/5 at home in this series but only covered 1 of those games, which was the last time they played here back on  Feb 13th.

MINNESOTA is 21-7 ATS  versus good teams - outscoring their opponents by 3+ points/game - 2nd half of the season over the last few seasons.MINNESOTA is 21-7 ATS L/27 as a road underdog of 6.5 to 12 points.MINNESOTA is 38-19 ATS L/57  in road games revenging 2 straight losses vs opponent of 10 points or more.  Wolves HC Thibodeau is 34-18 ATS   versus good shooting teams - making 46%  or better of their shots.

NBA teams  (HOUSTON) - after 4 or more consecutive wins, in February games are 47-87 ATS  L/5 seasons for a 65% go against conversion rate for bettors on the blind.

Ohio State vs Indiana
+2 -115 at MyBookie
Play Type: Premium

Ohio State has had a tremendous campiagn, and are the surprise team of the Big 10, but Archie Miller's  Indiana has expentionally shown imporvement as this season has progressed and must not be underestimated here as home dogs. Note: HC Miller is 5-0 ATS as a home dog in conference action.In the last 5 games, IU is shooting 51.9% from the field and 43.2% from beyond the arc, while holding opponents to 38.4% shooting from the field and 29.9% from the land of the trey.

The Hooisers did lose to the Buckeyes in their meeting on Jan 30, but now with revenge on board, and boasting a 7-1 ATS record as home pups vs .666 or better oppostion I'm betting the hosts hand out some shock and awe on Senior's night.
.IU has won the last 3 meetings in Assembly Hall dating back to the 2013-14 season.

INDIANA is 6-0 ATS  L/6  in home games when playing against a team with a winning record.INDIANA is 6-0 ATS off a road loss this season.( The Hooisers had a 4 game win streak halted at Nebraska last time out)  OHIO ST is 2-10 ATS L/12 after a cover as a double digit favorite.( The Buckeyes clobbered Rutgers last time out 79-52)

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.
