  • Vince Carter's Cousin: NBA RoundUp for 3/4

    Two years ago I uttered the following phrase: "It will be a cold day in Hell before I ever give props to Tracy McGrady." Last night, Hell got a light breeze, as our Paid Play on the Knicks came in strong, thanks in large part to T-Mac's...
  • NL Wild Card Early Breakdown

    This was a quick glance I was planning on pumping out late last week before the apartment-moving fiasco took control of my life, and fortunately for me (and everyone), the NL Wild Card got even more interesting over the weekend. For the sake of saving...
  • Dodgers: NL West Leaders Looking to Flip the Switch

    It's happened a million times in sports: a dominant team storms out to a gargatuan lead (in a game, the standings, etc.), then turns the motor off, or maybe just idles, under the assumption that they can "flip a switch" and start playing...
  • It's an Illusion: NBA RoundUp for 12/18

    I didn't think the day would come when I could make a subtle "Arrested Development" reference, but it has, and I feel good about it. If you haven't had the privilege of watching that show (no longer on television), you missed 3 seasons...
  • 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 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Bricks by the Bay: NBA RoundUp for 11/23

    Monday Recap : Just the wrong call with Golden State. I felt strongly they'd bounce back from that ugly game in LA by running a bit, but that team was just completely out of gas. Wrong side, wrong result. Today : Audio Feature: The last couple...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • LINKday: MLB RoundUp for 5/20

    IMPORTANT CHANGE: Some of you saw me talk about this in a few posts yesterday, and that's the inclusion of LINKS in my blog when we talk about something outside the cozy confines of the blog page. A few of you guys even did a nice job yesterday of...
  • 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...
  • Interleague Madness, Day 2: NBA & MLB RoundUp for 5/22

    Not a bad start to Interleague Weekend, with the ALL FREE FRIDAY snapping a rather unpleasant skid. We grabbed winners with the underdog Royals and roughly even-money Athletics, and our only loss came on the Angels, who managed to allow the opposing pitcher...
  • Lame Title Friday: MLB RoundUp for 5/21

    I grow weary of opening paragraphs recapping a clunker, so instead, I'll just announce that today's card will be 100% gratis! And the crowd goes wild! IMPORTANT CHANGE: Some of you saw me talk about this in a few posts yesterday, and that's...
  • Dan Bebe Goes to the Winter Meetings & Friday NBA RoundUp

    Hey all! There will be NO "Today in Sports Betting" shows Monday through Wednesday, and NO NBA Blogs Monday through Thursday, so I thought I'd try something a little on the "fun" side, here. This will be my thread for the ENTIRE...
  • Back to Normal Size Blog: NBA RoundUp for 3/29

    Yesterday started strong, and ended relatively well. The Paid Play on the Heat-Raptors Under went through a few stretches where it looked a little suspect, but for the most part the game was played at a nice slow tempo like we expected, and we just...
  • 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...
  • NFL Week 12 LINE ERRORS, by Dan Bebe

    Prelude: Due to a nasty flu, we didn't end up having an NFL blog last week. It felt weird, and didn't help with our handicapping. I award myself two thumbs down for not getting it done. Anyway, back to the quick PERCEPTION LINE ERROR notes...
  • 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...
