Well we have finished our first official week here making picks. Although I didn’t live up to the expectations of one pick everyday, this is my first attempt at blogging so give me a break. It was an Up and Down week on the betting/picks front. A lucky good call today on the Jets +8.5 brought it all around to leave me in the green for the week which is always good. Heres the Weekly Recap with my pics underlined and the result right after it. Picks in all bold are winners:

1/12/10

Kentucky -3.5 @ Florida … 89-77. A lot of people liked Florida to come close enough to Kentucky to cover this spread but the young Kentucky team lead by 25 points by Eric Bledsoe and another dominant 19 points from Diaper Dandy John Wall pulled it out and won by 12. Give them credit because Florida is not one of the easiest places to play.

1/13/10

UNC +4.5 @ Clemson … 64-83. This was a tough game to call, UNC looked like they were on the rise again the game before but they really came out and shit the bed at Clemson. The game in one sentence: UNC had more turnovers than field goals for the whole game until there was 5 minutes left in the second half.

Kansas -11.5 @ Nebraska … 84-72 I wrote in my entry for this pick about the scoring differential between the 2 teams over the past 10 games and other random facts. You could’ve easily disregarded that and read the only sentence that mattered. I didn’t like the spread at 12.5 but I said if you could get it at 11.5 or lower it was worth taking. Well luck will have it that is exactly what happened and that ended up being the very point that mattered. Kansas won by 12, covering the 11.5 spread.

Pitt +6.5 @ UConn … 67-57. Pitt is the hottest team in the Big East, no question. They are unstoppable on the road and this game is just further proof. Gibbs and Wanamaker are threats to score on any play while McGee offers a strong presence inside. This was the easy lock of the night; Pitt getting any points against anybody is pretty much a lock at this point. Take notes.

1/15/10

Toronto +2 @ NY Knicks … 112-104. The Raptors are a better team then the Knicks. Madison Square Garden is more friendly to opposing teams superstars then they are to the scrubs wearing blue. The Knicks giving points in any game should get your attention quickly. I didn’t even watch this game because I knew the result before it even started.

1/16/10

Pitt +1 vs. Louisville … 82-77. This was an amazing fucking game. I’ll be honest, I was pretty pissed I was gonna start my saturday off with a Pitt loss and a bet loss. But down 5 points with 35 seconds left in the game; Pitt did took care of business. Wanamaker proved why hes one of the best scorers in the Big East and showed how much effort he can bring to the court. Gibbs easily could’ve been the hero if he made that three or was given his three free throws but it ended up not mattering anyway. Pitt is resilient, and they showed that they could play from behind and win. It was an extremely exciting game and I hope you all got in on the action too because its games like that that make sports gambling awesome.

Arizona +7 @ New Orleans … Blowout. Wow did I jinx this game or what? A 70 yard touchdown run got me a little too excited and I got on this stupid blog and ran my mouth. I deserved the lose and I apologize to you all for ruining your pick haha. Either way, this was just the first leg of two shitty NFL picks that had me fuckin pissed.

Baltimore +6.5 @ Indianapolis … Not Close Enough. The second leg of the terrible NFL picks found me again betting on a road team gettin close to a TD. I don’t know why I was wrong, but I’m honestly not too surprised. The Ravens running game let me down and I let all of you down. Oh well, shit runs downhill; its gravity haha.

1/17/10

Jets +8.5 @ San Diego … 17-14. Great game overall. Great game by the Jets Defense. Mark Sanchez didn’t let his grimey mexi-stash keep him from throwing a td and only 1 pick. The Jets ran the ball well and played field position, we all expected this. I can’t say we all thought the Chargers were going to implode like this but with the overall character of the players on their team I don’t think anyone is surprised. Its a team full of players who love themselves and it starts with their perennial playoff-losing quarterback Phillip Rivers. His ego might not show in interviews but on the field it does. Enough about that, Jets not only got within 8.5, they won the game and allowed us betting on them to relax a little easier in the 4th quarter than we were planning.

So, for the week, the picks overall were 6/9 which is 67%. The NCAA Basketball picks were by far the most consistent at 4/5 meeting the OneWinningPick goal of 80%. The sole NBA pick hit, while the NFL picks played out about as awful as the Cardinals’ defense yesterday at 1/3 for 33%. So the OneWinningPick goal for this week was missed by 13% but thats okay. If you bet $100 on each game across the board you would be up $270 for the week. I’ll take an essentially free $270 every week for sure. But that still doesn’t excuse the fact that we were short of the 80% goal. That’s why I’m going to scour the lines this week and come back with 7 or 8 winners out of 8 or 9 picks. We’re going to rob them blind this week. So get ready to take your girl out on friday night, or if you don’t have a girl, call Candy at the strip club to break out the clear heels cuz we’re gonna be celebratin’
