  • Combo Blog #1: NBA/MLB RoundUp for 4/6

    No plays yesterday, as the NBA featured a rare game-less night, and we wanted to just take one day to get our bearings on MLB. This is the first official TWO-SPORT blog, so bear with me while I settle into a rhythm. I'll also try to include whether...
  • Lean on Me: NBA RoundUp for 3/22

    A new week is upon us, and we got off to a nice start yesterday grabbing an easy winner with the Blazers-Suns Under. There's no b.s. coming out of the Bebe flapper, though - we were stinking something fierce going into yesterday, and that no-sweat...
  • Weekend Short Blog #4: NBA RoundUp for 3/28

    Before I get into the nitty-gritty, I just wanted to take a moment to give a powerful " THANK YOU! " to all the guys that continue to show faith in my plays even in a bit of a colder spell, and even if it's the result of blog-related success...
  • NBA Season Opening RoundUp & IMPROMPTU LIVE CHAT for 10/26

    Recap: What recap? I guess we could go all the way back to LAST SEASON, if we absolutely must (and the 174-148 season and playoff combined record is nothing to scoff at, especially considering that after November 22, that mark was an even-more-impressive...
  • Chim-Chim-Chiree: NBA Playoff & MLB RoundUp for 5/10

    That's right, friends - a Mary Poppins reference. It's potential "Broom Day" in the NBA, and what film depicts a chimney sweep in a better light than Poppins? Not a bad Sunday. Not a bad Sunday, indeed. Let's hope that NBA...
  • Dr. MLK Day: NBA RoundUp for 1/18

    What a fine way to start Sunday, an easy blowout Paid Play victory with the Raptors demolishing the sluggish, disinterested Mavericks. That game went just as expected, with Toronto flexing some home court muscle, and Dallas wishing it wan't a morning...
  • ALL DAY LIVE CHAT and MLK Day RoundUp (5-1 on FREE Plays! Dan Bebe, 1/17)

    Opener: Because I loved the rant so damn much, I'm taking a page out of the Greg Shaker handbook and eliminating the Promo section ALMOST entirely. I know the Promo stuff is minimal compared to the over 2,500 games I've previewed in the...
  • Ejections and Bricks: NBA RoundUp for 3/24

    Holy crap, that was close! It shouldn't have been, though. We had the Under between Charlotte and Washington last night, and the game "ended" 19 points under the number we had. Unfortunately, the game also "ended" tied. Five extra...
  • Still on Our Way to Seven: NBA Finals & MLB RoundUp for 6/10

    No plays yesterday, so the recap section is pretty easy on this blog! I spent the day flying cross-country, and then, when I thought I'd have a good 3-4 hours in Los Angeles to really dig into a few key games on the card, Los Angeles threw me a...
  • (S)hitsville, USA: NBA RoundUp for 1/12

    I don't even want to talk about yesterday's one Premium Play. I was hoping to be able to title this blog "Hitsville, USA" after the Motown Museum in Detroit, but had to go back and change that word to better reflect how the game actually...
  • Mega Super Fun Happy Number-One Smile Time Blog: NBA & MLB RoundUp for 5/19

    I promised Tonydaguru a very special blog title, so let's get that explanation out of the way. I have no choice but to tip my cap to the Boston Celtics to kick off today's blog. That team is just rolling. There were a great many of us in the...
  • Can the Bulls Counter? - NBA/MLB Combo RoundUp for 4/19

    Nice to not be arriving at midnight on a flight back to Wayne County. And honestly, the results of yesterday are unrelated to that fact - it's just good to be home. A quick recap of yesterday saw us post one of our largest winning days since turning...
  • Weekend Short Blog #2: NBA RoundUp for 3/21

    I honestly can't even believe what's happening. We dropped 3 straight games by a combined 5 points, and just when I thought I had the problem licked, we got our butts kicked in both plays last night. It's a bad run, that's all there...
  • Back to Warm: NBA RoundUp for 4/1

    We were SO close to leapfrogging "Warm" and getting all the way to "Quite Warm," but the Grizzlies let us down. A lot to recap from yesterday with 3 plays going (if you can believe this phrasing) a "disappointing" 2-1...
  • Still Scoring in Oakland: NBA RoundUp for 3/23

    Not much to say about that Paid Play last night - the Magic just hit too many 3-pointers for our Under to come in strong. I still think the tempo was perfect, but Orlando just hit too many shots, and once those guys start playing the game, there's...
  • Warm: NBA RoundUp for 3/30

    For the next few days, I want to try titling the blog based on the temperature of our group handicapping. Last week, things were a tad frigid. Sunday, we put together a strong day to get to "Lukewarm," and after a winning Top Play and some hugely...
  • Joe Johnson's Falling Star: NBA Playoff & MLB RoundUp for 5/11

    With the number of NBA Playoff games diminishing, we have to continue to be extremely cautious with our selections. We had just one small play yesterday, taking a shot on the hapless Atlanta Hawks, and just got blasted. I don't know what it was...
  • Pacers Flirt with Perfection: NBA RoundUp for 11/10

    Recap: NBA is starting to hit a stride...one of, hopefully, MANY that we'll have over the course of the year! We've hit the biggest play on every card since Thursday (2* on Thursday, 2* on Friday, only play on Sat, 2* Monday, and 3* on Tuesday...
  • Lebrencore: NBA Playoff & MLB RoundUp for 5/9

    In an effort to try to get out of the house for the first time since getting home from vacation, we'll go ahead and post Sunday's blog before the conclusion of all sports on Saturday night...with your permission, of course! We hit our baseball...
  • Little Sally Duncan: NBA RoundUp for 3/25

    Won't make any bones about it, we got CREAMED on our Spurs play as San Antonio was dominated so thoroughly in the second half, I'm pretty sure Tim Duncan just put himself in line for the next available scrotal implant - those bad boys are feeling...
  • NBA Finals Tip Party: NBA & MLB RoundUp for 6/3

    First off, thanks to those who joined me on my MLB Game of the Week yesterday! It wasn't an easy game on which to pull the trigger given the Brewers issues all over the diamond, but they came through last night with 7 sweet runs on offense, and another...
  • 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...
  • It Ends at 14: NBA RoundUp for 11/17

    Tuesday Recap : Well, it was fun while it lasted, and I want to thank all the bloggers and clients that rooted for every play! 14 NBA winners in a row heading into yesterday...now, 1 loser in a row. The Sixers played hard for the first 24 minutes, but...
  • Pyrite: NBA Playoff & MLB RoundUp for 4/28

    That was my cheap shot at how poorly the Nuggets have played when the big boys started pushing back. We'll get to that in today's blog, below. We picked up yet another NBA Playoff winner with a 2* selection on the Dallas Mavericks, as the general...
  • 39 Refs: NBA RoundUp for 1/20

    Tuesday's outrageously small card of mostly uninteresting match-ups left us with poor value. We liked the dogs and we liked the Overs, but in the end, no matter how things turned out, I think we made the right choice by going light and waiting for...
