Wild Wednesday

Wild Wednesday means wild picks after wild picks. You may see a few teams on here that you don’t normally, but the rest of the picks will come @ 6pm from Bro Bro Bro Bets. I’m feeling extra wild so lets dive right in. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nba-fan-Efpfk11XWXwTSKqgV2

First, because it’s such a wild Wednesday, I’m going to do something I’ve never done before. We’re going to take the Cleveland Cavaliers against everyone’s favorite team, the Boston Celtics. Look, it’s wild Wednesday and I know this pick is as wild as you can get, but the Celtics beating the Cavs by 20 tonight just doesn’t sound right. Cavs are +16.5 right now and it opened at 17.5. Depending on how low this spread drops, a last second Celtics ML bet may be the move. However, it’s wild Wednesday so if anything, a last second Cavs ML might be the play. We’ll see the level of wild we’re at come game time, but it might happen. Suns beat the Celtics at home so anything is possible. Next, we’re going to bet against one of the hottest teams in basketball, the 76ers. The Spurs are a team that’s been good but nothing special. They travel to Philly and are 4 point dogs, which opened at 2. Spurs +4 in Philly cause although few men can hang with Embiid, Aldridge is one of them. Also, Popovich will have some sort of plan ready to shut Ben Simmons down. Spurs +4 in Philadelphia tonight and if you don’t like either team then just take the over.

There’s nothing that ruffles my feathers like betting on a big spread and having that be the upset of the night (Buffalo). That’s why wild Wednesday is my favorite day of the week for gambling. Because of the detrimental loss with Buffalo, I’m going to a true underdog, George Mason. George Mason +8 against the Dayton Flyers tonight is what will reverse the curse from Buffalo. Some cinderella’s are still riding that high of making it to the final four and I’m not positive GMU is one of those schools, but I’m positive they cover. George Mason +8 against the Flyers and I’ll probably take them ML as we get closer. (I always pull the trigger if the odds are up there.)

Recap: Cavs +16.5, Spurs +4, George Mason +8. The rest of the picks will come tonight @6 from Bro Bro Bro Bets. Let’s get hot on this wild Wednesday and ride these picks into a Thursday slate of winners. Good luck to all and let’s have a wild Wednesday.

Chuck And Shaq Thursday’s

Finally, Chuck and Shaq grace us with their presence on this wonderful Thursday in America. Celtics blew out the Pacers last night and I’ll probably be letting everyone and their mother know about it this weekend. First, lets get to the winners of the evening. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nba-lick-26xBKGXntF8Z5nE7S

There are 4 NBA games tonight so we’ll touch them all like it’s baseball. Four bases in baseball, making sure we dot our i’s and cross our t’s. First, we travel to Miami where the Heat host the Celtics. Celtics are -1.5 right now but I expect that spread to increase by two or three points after last nights showing by the Celtics. The Celtics can sometimes go on these runs of dropping points galore so there may be another 130+ point game in the ole Celtics tonight. The Heat are a team who can sneak a game or two but I think the Celtics are realizing it’s time to pick it up and we saw that last night when they destroyed a solid Indiana team. The next game of the night is Clippers @ Nuggets. I like Nuggets -5 cause they are one of, if not, the hardest team to beat at home. Their rap sheet of teams beaten in Denver is crazy so I think they’ll be able to take care of business. If the spread goes to 4, think about taking the over 226. Clippers and Nuggets both can score at will and the last Clippers game was a 130+ point performance. We’ll see what the Doctor is cooking up for the Clippers but I’d trust Jokic and the Nugs to get the job done. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/jcpenney-shaq-shaquille-oneal-2cdYrnU2YsUIOHOgiu

The next game is a possible playoff matchup in May between the Thunder and the Spurs. The game is in San Antonio and the spread is 1.5 in favor of the Thunder. This is probably the toughest game on the board, unsure which team will show up on both sides of the court. Thunder and the Spurs go through spurts of huge overs and huge unders. Out the gate, the money is on the under of 223 but for some reason I like the over tonight. A big man battle like Adams vs Aldridge calls for a plethora of points but see whether or not that line will increase, if it does go up, take the over but for now I’m taking Spurs +1.5. Last one of the night comes from California – Sacramento to be exact. The Pistons are on a back to back and the Kings are one of the best young units in the NBA. De’Aaron Fox has come on as an absolute stud and we’ll see how he holds up against Blake and the boys tonight. Betting on the Kings is one of my new favorite pastimes cause they used to be so pathetic and now it’s exhilarating to slam them. I’m gonna take the over 224 in this one and if Sacramento spread goes up to -6 then I’m hammering that as well. 

For college basketball, I’m taking Cincinnati -6.5 and UCONN -2.5. Schools with a C seem to do well for me so let’s hope that trend stays true. Lost the Auburn/Ole Miss over last night by half a point and if I get another one of those tonight I’ll be taking a hiatus from the college game. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nbaontnt-chuck-shaq-charles-barkley-l41lFLcWFzQ6rCKJy

Recap: Celtics -2.5, Nuggets -5, Pistons/Kings over 224, Spurs +1.5, Cincinnati -6.5, UCONN -2.5. Those are the six basketball games we’re rocking tonight and we need it now more than ever. I wish everyone the utmost luck in unearthing your bookie’s bank account.

Thursday Night With Chuck And Shaq

NBA Thursday’s are always a treat cause TNT comes in hot with Shaq and Chuck. It’s an even bigger treat when Kawhi heads back to San Antonio and Houston travels to Golden State. We have a few college games to ball with too so lets get into it. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nbaontnt-dancing-chuck-charles-barkley-l41lH1YS0NfCIFJT2

Last night was a good night, hitting 5 of 6 bets and making a little chunk of change. I’m always a huge proponent that whatever happened the night before doesn’t mean shit and it’s the truth. In the NBA, we’re taking these TNT games. Raptors @ Spurs and Rockets @ Warriors are two games that everyone should be interested in. Kawhi returns home and to be honest I don’t love either team here. My mind is telling me Raptors but my heart is telling me Spurs. I usually never listen to my heart but it’s 2019 so lets try this shit out. Spurs at home -2.5 and that’s cause I like San Antonio when they play in Texas. Spurs fans are going to be loud and Demar is also going to want to get some revenge on the Raptors. Dear gets his revenge tonight and Danny Green kisses a lot of hands. The Rockets are a team that is absolutely rolling right now. James Harden is playing basketball on a different level so the spread being at 8 points is too high for me. Rockets +8 at Golden State and the over is a safe play if you don’t wanna bet against the Warriors. Don’t know why you wouldn’t want to though, they dominated the league for years so lets laugh and bet against them every chance we get. Rockets will probably lose but by more than 8 points is aggressive, expect this line to change. Disclaimer: I’m taking the over in Denver/Sacramento 227 cause rooting for points is what makes me love the NBA.

When the over looks terrible in the 1st quarter

The college game has quickly turned into a favorite of mine as far as betting goes. Last night I had Maryland and they covered by half a point. Half a point covers can make or break a persons year so to get one this early into 2019 makes me feel great. With that being said, we need some locks in the college game tonight, not these last second half point victories (even though they keep me young.) Michigan at home -11, Indiana at home -11, and Iowa away +8. I think Purdue is good but 8 points against Iowa is tough. They play good defense and fundamentally they are unbelievable. Michigan has PSU and now that football season is over the students at UMich need a real team to root for. This Michigan team is a legit contender this year, Penn State isn’t, logic is flawless. Indiana has Illinois at home and Illinois hasn’t had a great recruit in years so expect Langford and the boys to take care of business before a big Thursday night in Broad Ripple for the boys of the Hoosiers. I wish there were more games on throughout the day but that would be brutal for my bank account when this train starts to slip. 

Recap: Spurs -2.5, Rockets +8, Denver/Sacramento over 227, Michigan -11, Iowa +8, Indiana -11. Lotta games tonight so lets stay hot with these 6. Good luck to all in your gambling endeavors, let’s win some cash.

NBA Friday In America

Last night we split the NBA games and swept the college games. Not bad heading into the weekend with a nice 3-1 night. There is plenty of basketball tonight so lets get right into it. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nba-fan-RI4O2XmTfeEANssqqZ

Yeah, right off the bat, Celtics at home against the Bucks. I know the Celtics just lost to the Phoenix Suns and that’s why this is an absolute lock. Celtics don’t lose three games in a row, let alone two in a row at home. Vegas already knows they’re winning cause the line opened at -1. The Bucks are a great team but we owned them in the playoffs last year and we’re a much better team (not record) this year. After two losses in a row expect us to come back hot and go on another run starting with the Bucks tonight. The second game we’re running with is consistently my favorite bet by a country mile: over 230’s. Last night, Clippers Mavericks went up to 246 and was an absolute lock. Tonight, Hawks @ Knicks over 231 sounds fantastic. Zion just laughed at the Knicks while sitting in their locker room so they have to come out swinging to make a Zion statement game. Crazy that the teams who tank have to be bad but can’t be so bad or else these guys won’t even want to come. Both these teams suck and that’s why points points points tonight. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nba-celebration-TG9UnYWZh29ryrPWsY

The Timberwolves roll into San Antonio and I don’t think this mentally weak Minnesota team can hang with the dogs coached by Lord Pop. The Spurs are -4 and Aldridge is coming out swinging on Towns to let him know he’s gonna have a tough night. He’s been hot and DeRozan will crush Wiggins till he gives up like this team loves to do. Spurs -4, I know you’re not supposed to feel great about bets but, I feel great about this one. Next we got to Portland. The Trail Blazers are astounding at home and that’s gonna continue tonight when the Jazz come to town. I think the Jazz are a little overrated even though the West is incredible. Trail Blazers at home -2 with Lillard and CJ having themselves a little Friday going into the weekend. Expect a huge game from both those guys but be careful of Joe Ingles, that guy is a cold blooded killer. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/nba-dunk-uta-7TnuvkAaZLWO4Y62Ma

For the college slate, I’m taking a couple goliath’s of college basketball. That’s right, Indianapolis’ favorite team, the IUPUI Jaguars against the Morehead State Eagles. IUPUI has given a couple great teams a run for their money but Morehead State is not a great team. The Jag’s should roll into wherever Morehead State is and dominate this team. They’re only -1.5 and are a much better team than Morehead. I’ve been a pretty decent 5-1 in college basketball, almost as if I have gypsy powers for the college game. To go with them, I’m taking LIU Brooklyn at noon. Go ahead and lock them in for a little early Friday gambling magic to get the blood flowing. LIU is -8.5 against Binghamton and I absolutely love it. Last time I lost a day game bet it was when I took the team against LIU, therefore, I believe LIU will come back to avenge my previous day game loss. 

Recap: Celtics -1, Hawks/Knicks over 231, Trail Blazers -2, Spurs -4, IUPUI -1.5, LIU -8.5. Happy Friday to everyone and lets make some magic happen starting with LIU at noon.

NBA Report On A Beautiful Monday

I don’t wanna hear about the Patriots. Right now, I’m not worried about the New England Patriots, I’m worried about what games you people are going to cash out in. My focus remains laser like and these games are a shoe-in to win you money. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/swag-money-make-it-rain-VTxmwaCEwSlZm

It’s always a shame when the Celtics aren’t playing on Monday cause I really need a Boston victory to get the spirits up after whatever happened yesterday. Unfortunately, we don’t have Brad’s Boys to dominate a team today. Never fear cause all four of these picks will win us money and all will be right in the world. Today, we’ll start with the elusive over 230. I don’t know if the Kings have ever played in a game and not allowed 100 points. Actually, the Kings have given up at least 100 points in every game except for one since November 12th against the Spurs when they allowed 99 points. Naturally, we’re going to take Kings @ Twolves over 232. This is a great over game and if De’Aaron Fox and Karl Towns have a night then I’m sure we’ll hit this high over. The second over/under I’ll be taking is the Grizzlies @ Warriors which right now is at 210. Initially, I loved this under because anytime a Warriors game is set under 220, it’s almost like Vegas just knows they will have a little trouble. I wrote “under 210” in my notes, but as I go to say I’m taking the under of 210 in a Warriors game, I’ve flopped to the over. Grizzlies @ Warriors, over 210. The Warriors can put up 115 on their own and if the Grizzlies can’t get to 95 then the next over/under for a Warriors game that’s set at or below 215 will receive my mortgage on that bet.

https://giphy.com/gifs/reactiongifs-drunk-oc-K0KQSHFfmCsPC

One of the two spreads were taking tonight is the “bet against the Bulls” strategy. The Bulls have to go to Oklahoma City to play the Thunder who are ripping teams right now. The Thunder have a different feel to them this year. Steven Adams is gonna be an all star, Paul George is having a great year, and the biggest thing is they got rid of Carmelo Anthony. Not to mention, the Bulls are still one of the biggest circus acts in the NBA. Thunder at -12.5 is a big spread but not when you’re playing the Bulls at home. Bulls @ Thunder tonight and we’re taking the Thunder at -12.5. The last game is my most anticipated match up of the night. A lotta people would say this is a terrible game, but I think this equates to the Super Bowl for the number 1 pick, a conference championship to the very least. Suns @ Knicks in the early year toilet bowl that makes this Monday extra special. The combined record of these two teams is 15-46. This game is going to be an absolute showdown. Normally, in a game like this with one franchise being the team that plays in MSG, I’d go for the home court advantage. However, I like the Suns for some reason tonight so I’m taking them at +1 in New York City. Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker help get the victory in New York and I still believe the future is bright in Sun country. Unlike this lady, who seems to be all in on ridding the world of Suns owner Robert Sarver.

Would not want to be whoever ‘Ed’ is cause he’s receiving a mean stare from Ms. Greta Rogers. Can’t say I blame her, would suck to have top 3 picks every year and not see a lick of improvement. Come be a Celtics fan Greta, we aren’t very bad and when we are its usually a short period of time. 

Recap: Kings/Twolves over 232, Grizzlies/Warriors over 210, Thunder -12.5, and Suns +1. Let’s do better than .500 tonight and .250 would be better cause then you people in fade season would go 3-1. Bet with me, bet against me, lets just hope we all end up with cash (impossible). Good luck in starting your betting week off right.

My Apologies To All

For some reason, we went 4-0 in basketball bets last night and my whole world feels off. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/angeles-bachcaps-bearfighting-RFDXes97gboYg

Never in my life would I think there would be a night that I didn’t lose money. However, here I sit, alive and stunned at the almost positive balance in my account. Fade season may be fading, but there’s no chance I let it stop here. I will do my absolute best to pick the right spreads for the people to fade today. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/obama-barack-obama-2012-3otPoyudZ18xASX0rK

The Celtics are so far back it’s not even funny. There are few teams with the skill that the Boston Celtics have not only on the court but coaching too. Brad Stevens cracked the case on our squad and now we’re just steam rolling teams. They’ve been running teams out of the gym and it’s about time cause we can do that to anyone. For that, we’re taking them -2.5 @ Detroit. The Pistons have good players but they just lost to Charlotte and seem to be headed in the wrong direction. Take the C’s spread and feel great about it. To go with that, we’re taking the loquacious Lakers. I know Bron just lost to Houston but that makes me like the Lakers even more tonight at Charlotte. Lebron in front of Jordan, of course he’s going to put on a show. Expect a few smiles exchanged between those two as Lebron throws his baby powder into the air. Lakers -2 in Charlotte and them being favorites is even more confirmation that they’re going to blow the Hornets out. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/afv-funny-fail-lol-3oEdv1dqXuR9pV8PWU

Not too many high over/unders tonight, not even one near 230 which is absolutely despicable. I’m not happy about it but we’ll take the closest thing which is Clippers @ Thunder over 225.5. I don’t think Russel Westbrook is going to lose after the whole Jamal Murray debacle last night. That little Canadian bastard pisses off more superstars than Ron Artest before he was Metta World Peace. I don’t hate the way Denver plays but they aren’t the Celtics so the Nuggets can shove it. The last game we’re rocking with is more along the lines of the previously used full proof system: betting against the worst teams in the league. Spurs -10.5 at home against the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are just a traveling dumpster fire right now and Popovich at home usually puts on a show for the people of San Antonio. Another blowout in Texas here as the Spurs route the Bulls. Of any of the games, this is the one I’d go biggest on. Or the Celtics, obviously. 

https://twitter.com/DimeUPROXX/status/1073813150447878144

College Basketball is all day as well and I know absolutely nothing but Zion is the greatest player ever. Georgetown -3.5, NC State -4, Pitt -24, and Indiana in a pick em. Could of drawn these names out of a hat but they’re all locks for sure. 

To recap the NBA, I’m going with the Celtics -2.5, Lakers -2, Clippers/Thunder over 225.5, and Spurs -10.5 at home. We hit on all cylinders last night so lets hope these games bring back the season of the fade. If not, maybe were entering a new season of betting. That, or some of BroBroBro’s magic somehow was given to me. Either way, good luck to all in their gambling endeavors this weekend.

NBA Picks Tonight Roll On

Last night we went 3-3 and if it weren’t for a pesky one point miss in the Thunder game, we would of done better (or worse for the fade). Celtics are back and we’re keeping that mojo going with these picks tonight. Before we begin, let me say its been an honor having you wonderful people fade me. A goal of mine was to be bad enough at any one thing that the opposite is a lock and you people have helped fulfill one of my lifelong dreams. With that being said, tonight, all these picks are 100%, not a doubt in my mind, winners.

https://giphy.com/gifs/snl-saturday-night-live-kenan-thompson-5b5OU7aUekfdSAER5I
No, I’m not. 

First, LAbron and the Lakers roll into the city cursed by Carmelo, which if you aren’t a basketball guy is also the city of JJ Watt. Yup, you guessed it, Houston. The Lakers vs the Rockets, a clash of teams that baffled their expectations by underwhelming them like Black Mass. With that being said, one team has Lebron, and the other team doesn’t. I’m rolling with the Lakers +5.5, they beat the Rockets even if it is in Houston. If they lose, it’s because Dwayne Wade and Lebron had a night full of wine and tears after what many thought was the retirement of Dwayne Wade.

https://giphy.com/gifs/nba-basketball-3o7aTnQqygA3TcukFi

The other night we found out the Clippers, that team that share a city with a King, yeah, they are not a legit contender. Blown out at home against the Raptors, the Clippers now have to go to Popovich Palace and test their craft there. I’m going to take a few things in this game, first and foremost the over of 221.5. On top of that, I’m taking the Spurs -2.5. They’ve been playing good basketball and no matter who is on the Spurs it’s hard to beat Pop on his own court. To go with that lock were going with the team that has been getting slaughtered left and right, yes, the Bulls at +5. The Chicago Bulls win their first game in what feels like a decade tonight against the Magic. You know what they say, Even a blind bull finds a matador from time to time.

https://giphy.com/gifs/robots-bigdog-MFsmb8MWYgvew

Last we have the Mavericks against the Suns, This game is in Phoenix which for you geography buffs is in Arizona. It’s pretty hot in Arizona, however, its not if you’re a Suns fan. Coincidence? I think not. Dallas Mavericks -7 all day everyday. Take it, lock it, love it, and let Luka Doncic, the european man with the euphoric step back three, help win you some cash. The Suns are terrible and the Mavericks aren’t so take us home Mark Cuban. To recap, I’m taking Lakers +5.5, Spurs over 221.5 and -2.5, Bulls +5, and Mavericks -7. So, again, you people should be taking, Rockets, Clippers, Magic, and Suns. I didn’t choose the fade life, the fade life chose me. I wish you all many a dollar in your Thursday night quest for cash.

Is Going 2-3 In Gambling Good?

No, it’s not good, it was a rhetorical question, but we went 2 for 5 and it could be worse. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/peaky-blinders-bbc-first-thomas-shelby-3o7qDPOeDdG9QkEdt6

Yes, fade season is still in session, especially with how ice cold that Vikings pick was. I apologize to all Minnesota fans out there for my pick, but when the fade gods are in your favor, it really isn’t even in my hands at that point.  There is a higher power at work here and whether it’s the gambling demons or gods, I’ve been blessed by a higher or darker light. Last night in the NBA, we weren’t too bad at picking games, over under’s were terrible, but spreads were both locks. Golden State went under by 5 and the Nuggets went over by 4. Absolute shot to the nuts on both those, but it was exhilarating following the game cast. Warriors and Timberwolves can both go to hell but I’m over it cause the Celtics are 200% back. 

https://twitter.com/NBCSCeltics/status/1071609646635376640

Terry Rozier is one of the smaller guys in the NBA that I am afraid of but I know we would be friends because of my fandom. With that being said, we beat the Pelicans by 13 without Kyrie Irving. Not many teams can beat the Pelican’s without their best player while letting AD drop 41. Hell of a night for the Celtics and a hell of a morning for the Bulls too. Kings absolutely rolled the 6-22 Chicago Bulls. Second half score was 63-33. They should start thinking about tanking for Zion. Why not? The dude is a lock to be great in the NBA and is a moving refrigerator. On top of that, ticket sales and merchandise would skyrocket for whatever team gets him. 

https://giphy.com/gifs/dukembb-duke-basketball-vs-kentucky-2018-19-BWCHh3nCM0qtRm5fyo

Tonight we got three games so we’ll hit them all and only take the spreads. Across the board I think tonight should go well. This has been my mindset since day one so take that with a grain of salt. Not sure if the Clippers are legit but I’m really hoping they are cause I’m gonna roll with the Doctor and the boys tonight. Clippers +4.5 at home against the Raptors and I like our chances riding with the best team in LA (@Lebron). Another underdog were going with is the Trail Blazers. They are +6.5 at the Rockets and I think the Rockets sort of suck now. To the very least they aren’t 7 points better than the Trail Blazers so I like Lillard and the funky bunch. Last is the Suns in San Antonio against the Spurs. I mean, the Suns have even less wins than the Bulls and Devin Booker might get his wish and have another first overall pick. The super team won’t just “come to him,” as he asked, but they’ll actually have drafted it. Booker, Ayton, and Barret or Zion would be unbelievable. But that’s next year, and tonight the Spurs destroy the Suns. Spurs -12.5 with the possibility of buying points up cause I think they beat the Suns by 30. Tuesday night basketball, let’s go.
