  • Blog Post: TODAY'S METS GAME AND THE FORGOTTEN FACTOR IN BASES

    You.ve all heard the saying, "Good pitching overcomes good hitting." Really? Who decided that? Do you know? Was it some baseball announcer who never could pick a winner? Where's the statistical support for that platitude? If the good hitting won, how would anyone know whether it was merely...
  • Blog Post: OFFSHORE ACCT - THURS 8/27 LATE MLB PLAY IN REPLIES

    Once upon a time, a long time ago, in the land of Las Vegas, far far away, when Pregame was just a fantasy in RJ's head (when you are surrounded by show girls all day, you fantasize about sports websites), there was something called the PLUS10 Club. Rumor has it the Plus10 still exists. Check it...
  • Blog Post: FAVORITE PHOBIA

    Favorite Phobia is a form of psychosis that afflicts otherwise reasonable and rational bettors during baseball season. Victims of the dread Favorite Phobia are filled with fear and loathing at the mere thought of a money line set at 2-1 or higher. As the line on a favorite rises above –160, sufferers...
  • Blog Post: BEATING THE BULLPEN (Post Fixed & Now Readable) + FREE PICK FOR SUNDAY

    I'm not sure what happened, but I posted this hours ago, and when I came back to look at it, only three people had managed to view it and the rest were apparently getting a 404 Error Page. I could not get the original post to show up no matter what I did. I had to delete the first article, then wash...

  • Blog Post: THAT'S WHY THEY CALL IT "GAMBLING" + FREE PICK

    We had some terrible luck. If you bought my package for the Monday game, you know I picked Denver, and most of the analysis was based on Jay Cutler vs. Matt Cassel at QB and the comparative strengths of the offensive line. We were completely correct about the weakness of New England's offensive line...
  • Blog Post: PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL BETTING

    Rule: To maximize your win you must risk more on the better bets and less on the worse bets and nothing on the bad bets. You cannot expect to win by risking larger sums on poorer bets, and lesser sums on better bets. Most bettors bet baseball by risking whatever is necessary to return their normal win...
  • Blog Post: Stock and Baseball FREEBEES FROM ROB CROWNE

    Tonight the Yankees are on the road against Pittsburgh. If you want to make money in the stock market, go with the Steelmen. The demand for steel from the developing nations in the Middle East, as well as China and India, and the demand for oil drilling rigs, has given the steel companies pricing power...
  • Blog Post: THERE'S MORE TO BASEBALL THAN PITCHING AND STREAKS

    Normal 0 THERE'S MORE TO BASEBALL THAN PITCHING AND STREAKS Normal 0 © Robert Crowne & Assoc., July 9, 2011 I am forever amazed at how many baseball bettors rely solely on pitching statistics to make their selections. Then, when the better pitcher loses...
  • Blog Post: WHY I WANT TO BE RICH

    DOUBLE HEADER - A POEM DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE, DOUBLE YOUR FUN, GETTING HEAD FROM TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE. When I was young, a good friend and I would discuss why we wanted to be rich and how rich we wanted to be. The one reason to be rich that our mid-20's glands caused us to agree on was that being...
  • Blog Post: UNDERSTANDING BASEBALL LINES

    Part 1 - Money Lines There are four categories of betting lines in baseball. They are, in order of their popularity: (1) A money line quoted to $100 (2) A combination of a run line with a money line quoted to $100 (3) A money line quoted to $5 (4) A pure run line. We'll fully discuss each of these...
  • Blog Post: ROB CROWNE'S THURSDAY FREEBIE

    Tampa Bay -170 over Philadelphia (Shields over Myers) Last night I gave you a win with Philadelphia as pick. The professional sports handicapper has no team loyalty. My loyalty is to whichever team handicaps to win the game I'm handicapping. Tonight that's Tampa Bay as a -170 favorite. I don't...
  • Blog Post: LOWER THE COST OF YOUR SELECTIONS

    Last night, the Wall Street Bankers Syndicate had their first big play in baseball. Selections given to monthly and season subscribers at Pregame, and to my Crowne Club members, are rated from 1/2 unit to a very top of 2 Units . The Syndicate play last night was big enough for us to rate it a very top...
  • Blog Post: BETTING BASEBALL UNDERDOGS

    Most underdog bets in baseball are based on the line being too high. You handicap the favorite to be the probable winner, but the probability that the favorite will win is less than the odds you must lay, and so you take the underdog as the value play. Sometimes you find an underdog that looks like a...
