    Last Tuesday night, the posted total in the Detroit/Chicago game opened at 190, ran down to 188 ? and 10 minutes before the game started ran back up to 191 or 191.5 in some places. If you bet the "under" after the line ran down to 188.5 because you were trying to follow the smart money, or...

  • Blog Post: Bet Like a Pro: LAKERS/ORLANDO HEDGE STRATEGY

    For the two prior games at Orlando I have told subscribers that the predicted point differential is 4 to 5 pts. The first game ended regulation at a 4 point differential, and the second game ended regulation within just two baskets of the prediction. Tonight's prediction hasn't changed. With...
