  • Blog Post: From Inter to Intra: MLB RoundUp for 6/28

    Recap : I believe in golf I'd ask for a mulligan. The Seattle Mariners never woke up and got completely shut down by Chris Narveson. You really need to stink for that to happen, and we bet on 'em. The small Free Play lost, as well. I'd like to say there are a ton of lessons to be learned...
  • Blog Post: Abort, Retry, Fail: NBA RoundUp for 1/11

    Pregame? Hello? I know you're there, but why do you keep responding to my knocks on your door with "Website not found?" Oh well, perhaps a day off from betting was just what we needed. A refresher day to catch up on work, watch some football without wringing our hands about the outcome...
  • Blog Post: 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 the inclusion of LINKS in my blog when we talk...
  • Blog Post: Live from Vegas: MLB RoundUp for 4/16

    It took 10 innings, but the Dodgers squeaked out the late game and got us a split. And really, considering the Dodgers appeared on the verge of defeat repeatedly, I'd say we escaped yesterday about as well as we could have hoped. Being in Vegas means these intro paragraphs are going to be brief ...
  • Blog Post: 'Twas a Sharp Saturday: NBA Round-Up for Sun., 11/8 & Fantasy Advice

    Quite a day for the public in the NBA, yesterday. Without digging into totals, we can say with certainty they lost with Denver, they lost with Boston, Utah, the Clippers, and Chicago, and the other two games were split 50/50. So, by my count, the public went a solid 0-5-2, if you can count split money...
  • Blog Post: 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 142-107). But, that's the past, and this is...
  • Blog Post: Weekend Short Blog #6 (Hot): NBA RoundUp for 4/4

    I really feel like I was extremely conservative in raising the temperatures of the blog, but after winning in 6 of 7 days this week, I think it's fair to say that we are officially "hot." The Milwaukee Bucks cruised to an easy winner over the Suns despite Amare Stoudemire's vicious...
  • Blog Post: Batum Goes Boom! - NBA RoundUp for 3/15

    These openings are getting to be a bit long-winded, and until my amount of free time increases by, say 25%, I think it's time to put more of my energy into the game write-ups, and less into recapping records and yesterday's results. Side note: thanks to Goodfella for today's blog title! ...
  • Blog Post: Kobe, That Ain't Cool: NBA RoundUp for TNT Thursday, 12/17

    Sometimes it's good to be a Laker fan. Another miracle ending, another buzzer-beater for Kobe Bryant, this time in OT, as the Bucks blew a 106-100 lead with a minute left in the overtime period, and fell to the Lakers 107-106. Easily the funniest quote of the night came from the Zen Master, who...
  • Blog Post: Mavericks and the Heimlich Maneuver: NBA RoundUp for 4/27

    If leans paid, we'd be swimming in a pile of money. Our baseball leans went 3-2, and our NBA leans went 2-0, which means we should have had a solidly winning day, right? Wrong. Sadly, the one play we decided to make our Premium Selection was a heartbreaking loser, as Toronto battled Boston tooth...
  • Blog Post: Lady Luck on Speed Dial: NBA & MLB RoundUp for 5/25

    Sometimes you're good, and sometimes you're lucky. On Friday we went 2-1, on Saturday we went 3-0, and on Sunday we went 2-0, and we were winning going into the 9th inning in all 7 victories on the bases. Basically, what I'm saying is that we didn't need a miracle to win, just needed...
  • Blog Post: Agent Zero's Big Day: NBA RoundUp for 12/13 & Fantasy Advice

    Gilbert Arenas might be finally getting his legs back, as The Hibachi dumped a triple-double on the Indiana Pacers, but saw his team fall. The Wizards seem like they're one notch away from being a consistently solid team, and that notch might be defense. Haywood patrols the paint pretty well, but...
  • Blog Post: Quite Warm: NBA RoundUp for 4/2

    We're still a few wins away from being "hot," but that easy coast-to-coast winner with Orlando last night certainly bumps us one notch above "warm" to a temperature that I like to call "quite warm." As far as leans go, we made our play on the Magic to take advantage...
  • Blog Post: Bowling for Buckets, Frame 4: NBA RoundUp for 12/22

    What can I say, gents? I feel like a real putz. Once again we go 1-1 in the NBA on Paid/Free plays, once again missing the mark on the side by a wide gap. It's probably unprofessional to complain when we've actually gone 3-3 in the NBA since I made the jump to Pro, since 3-3 really isn't...
  • Blog Post: The Day After Sweatnesday: MLB RoundUp for 7/8

    Recap : Game of the Week Winner! That sentence doesn't get old. That makes 3-1 the last 4 Games of the Week, and 1-0 on recent Games of the Month, so a nice little chunk there in just a few plays. It wasn't my finest handicapping, as Toronto needed a late rally to pull through, but they did just...
  • Blog Post: Fridays are for Letdowns: NBA RoundUp for 2/19

    Yes, folks, we definitely saw the ugliest 4th quarter of, maybe, any game all season long, and damnit, I couldn't be happier. After a 56-point first quarter, the Lakers and Celtics combined for 44 points in each of the 2nd and 3rd quarters, and then came the beautiful sound... *CLANK* A 28...
  • Blog Post: Jazz and Booz(e): NBA RoundUp for 12/11

    There weren't any official plays yesterday, but if you read this blog, you knew damn well I had a love affair going with home dogs, and they did not disappoint. Two home dogs posted upset wins, and the Wizards covered. It was beautiful, beautiful basketball. Nice bounceback game for the Utah Jazz;...
  • Blog Post: Some Tired Teams: NBA RoundUp for 2/27

    Deeee-Troit Baaaasket-baaaall! Yes, I played that PA Announcer's voice in my head every time the Pistons managed a defensive stop against the Nuggets. There weren't many late in the 4th quarter, but we had the line advantage all night long, and the Pistons were NEVER behind by more than the...
  • Blog Post: 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 nothing we can do about it. The Free Play was...
  • Blog Post: Enter in Rear: NBA Roundup for 11/2 & Fantasy Advice

    Yesterday was a true test for those who wagered on favorites, as some of you are likely still reeling from getting backdoored on a handful of outcomes. New Orleans, Memphis, Minnesota and Atlanta all managed to squeeze just inside the spread, though if you grabbed Lakers at the opening line of -7.5,...
  • Blog Post: 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. The Paid Play on the Memphis Grizzlies was a damn...
  • Blog Post: 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 minutes of stress for your buddy, Bebe. When...
  • Blog Post: Interleague Madness Returns, Day 1: MLB RoundUp for 6/11

    Winner in the NBA, but that's what I expect. Doesn't mean I'm not going to be happy about it, but you guys know how I feel about what we can accomplish in the Association. Plus, the game stayed Under, which means that secret love I share with Greg Shaker will remain partially under wraps...
  • Blog Post: Go Big or Go Home: NBA & MLB RoundUp for 5/29

    It's the weekend, so very short intro! Not a very strong Friday, but just one day, and coming off a great Thursday and a powerhouse week, no reason to fret! And some of you guys might think this is nuts, but we're going right back with another 3* in the NBA! It's been a nice, nice week...
  • Blog Post: Argh: NBA RoundUp for 3/17

    It's a travel day for Danny Boy, so enjoy the blog, and I'll be headed across the country for most of the day! A recap of yesterday's action saw us collect an easy winner with our Free Play on the Heat-Spurs Under, and a tough, tough loss as the Kings-Lakers ending has left me scratching...
