  • Dan Bebe's WEEKEND Thread (formerly Trades Aftermath: NBA RoundUp for 2/25)

    Opener: To be honest, I'm almost tempted to just turn this blog into an opener-only, where we can discuss the trades (and there were quite a few) of Thursday, and their impact. Instead, and since I know you guys all prefer the game by game breakdowns...
  • Trade Deadline Thursday: NBA RoundUp for 2/24

    Opener: I'd say we're just about back into the normal flow of the season after a couple post-All Star days of going ultra light. Of course, just in time for the tiny TNT Thursday card. At least, for our sake, the teams involved should be hugely...
  • Back in the Flow: NBA RoundUp for 2/23

    Opener: As I wrote in one of my comments in yesterday's blog, February 22 was the birthday of my friend that passed away back in October, so bear with me if the timing on this blog is a little weird, or if I seem to lose focus for a moment every...
  • Back from the All Star Break: NBA RoundUp for 2/22

    Opener: Ah, the All Star Break...it comes and goes so fast. We cashed some juicy tickets with John Wall as the Rookie/Sophomore MVP (at +900), Team Atlanta in the Haier Shooting Stars Competition (at +250), and Steph Curry in the Skills Challenge ...
  • Dan Bebe's All Star Break Thread

    Thursday Opener: No new blog today, just 2 games, and an All Star Break approaching, so I'm just adding 2 writeups to the existing blog. Sweet 2-0 sweep on Wednesday, and we've hit all 3 paid plays this week en route to some nice profits, winning...
  • Dan Fights the Flu, Day 2: NBA RoundUp for 2/15

    Opener: Still fighting whatever this cursed bug is...and honestly, I can't remember the last time I got sick this many times in a one year span. I blame Michigan...at least the Paid Play came through for a couple units, yesterday. Short card today...
  • An NBA Week Begins, Pt 17: NBA RoundUp for 2/14

    Opener: A true clunker of a betting weekend - if we could perhaps channel Gob Bluth of Arrested Development and steal a few "Forget-Me-Nows" I don't think any of us would complain. With the All Star Break approaching, this is most...
  • Friday & Weekend NBA Primer: RoundUp for 2/11

    Opener: Jerry Sloan...end of an era. GOW 3* winner on the Lakers-Celtics Under yesterday, 1* Free loser, and the NBA slow profit grind continues in the positive direction! Sports Wagering: NBA New Jersey Nets @ Charlotte Bobcats (-7.5) with...
  • Showdown on Parquet: NBA (on TNT+) RoundUp for 2/10

    Opener: This opener is easy - just take a look at the TNT early game. It's time for mayhem, for a number of reasons. The Lakers head into the TD Garden for a rematch with the Celtics, losing in LA not but a week and change back, Ray Allen is within...
  • Kooky Wednesday Angle Shortage: NBA RoundUp for 2/9

    Opener: Sometimes my opening remarks are going to tail a day behind the action, simply because of when I type them. And it occurs to me that that's not very interesting, topical, or helpful. I'll try to figure out how best to deal with this...
  • All Business Tuesday: NBA RoundUp for 2/8

    Opener: Getting this blog done wildly early, so I don't have a ton of random thoughts. Today feels like the kind of day we should just launch into the meat of the blog. Sports Wagering: NBA Philadelphia 76ers @ Atlanta Hawks (-5) with a total...
  • An NBA Week Begins, Pt 16: NBA RoundUp for 2/7

    Opener: On the gambling side of things, Friday's 4-0 monster sweep was followed up with two rather disappointing small loss days (0-1 Sat, 1-1 Sun). Back to megasweeps this week, says I. I still feel like, for the most part, I'm seeing things...
  • Dan Bebe's Weekend Thread for 2/5-6 (formerly Friday's 4-0 Supersweep Blog)

    Opener: What a swell Friday, eh? 4-0 on NBA plays for the 2nd straight Friday, and I'm slowly falling in love with that day of the week...onto Saturday, the Game of the Week, and a nice crop of NBA games with quite a few scheduling angles (I'm...
  • Not Snow Much: NBA RoundUp for 2/3

    Opener: Well, after all that, a large part of Southeast Michigan didn't get hit all that hard by what was supposed to be the worst storm in almost a decade. Instead, we got some winds that knocked out cable/internet (curse you, Comcast), and...
  • Snowpocalypse: NBA RoundUp (and Weather) for 2/2

    Opener: To those of you who took one look at the title and thought, "This Bebe jerk is just trying to get some random hits from people looking for weather updates"....kudos. A man's gotta make a living! But jerk or not, SOME of...
  • Tuesday Dinnertime 4-Game Leaflet: NBA RoundUp for 2/1

    Opener: Earlier this morning I thought of some great stuff to rant about in the opening section, and courtesy of a few hours of errand-running, car-under-snow-digging, some exercise (amazing though it may seem), and whatever else my brain is processing...
  • An NBA Week Begins, Pt 15: NBA RoundUp for 1/31

    Opener: Things got moving in a better direction last week (won 5 straight in NBA leading into Sunday, Celtics and Suns pending), and after seeing team after team blow a lead in the final 90 seconds two weeks back, those late leads began translating...
  • Dan Bebe's Weekend Thread for 1/29-30 (formerly Friday blog)

    Opener: WELCOME TO THE CONVERTED WEEKEND BLOG! Sports Wagering: NBA Memphis Grizzlies @ Philadelphia 76ers (-3.5) with a total of 192; The Sixers have covered 5 in a row and have won 3 in a row, straight up. The Grizzlies are coming off a loss...
  • TNT Dinnertime Blog, Heatle Flavor: NBA RoundUp for 1/27

    Opener: Getting this blog out early, but I will say that one of the big things I'm going to be assessing at the end of the Wednesday slate will be how the inordinately large number of road favorites performed. You guys know I generally am not a...
  • Bebe Back in the Mitten: NBA RoundUp for 1/26

    Opener: Well, I largely missed the action yesterday, I admit, while flying across this fine nation (well, first across it, then up it...thank to you all the airlines that make getting to Detroit so time-consuming). Still, I must say, landing and...
  • Dan in Flight: NBA RoundUp for 1/25

    Opener: That's two straight winning days, so that's nice. 'Bout freaking time our teams that led going into the 3rd led at the final horn. In any case, rumbling along into Tuesday - I'll be flying most of the day, but I still damn...
  • An NBA Week Begins, Pt 14: NBA RoundUp for 1/24

    Opener: Rumbling into a new week, trying to shake off the stink of all those blown leads. Nothing we can do about those now, and I know a lot of cappers say it, but I think we can all agree that we'd make those same wagers again. I mean, really...
  • Dan Bebe's Weekend Thread (formerly Friday Blog)

    WEEKEND THREAD! - feel free to ignore the old blog below, though I don't want to delete it (since I like to have record of all my writeups) Sports Wagering: NBA Detroit Pistons @ New Jersey Nets (-2) with a total of 190.5; Situationally, this...
  • Clippers on TNT?! - NBA RoundUp for 1/20

    Opener: Sometimes all I can do is scratch my head. On the betting side, we had YET ANOTHER game that was looking good after 36 minutes of action only to flop harder than Rob Schneider's latest flick. No excuses - time to pick a side (or total)...
  • Another Jumbo Card: NBA RoundUp for 1/19

    Opener: Pretty short NBA slate from Tuesday to discuss, though I suppose the news that LeBron wasn't quite at full strength should be the all-time non-shock of the year. What's that? Miami lost a few games and James rushed back? Big deal. ...
