Won another Triple Dime............

.........and even the extra run for those that didn't get 6.5. Boston wet their pants after a nice lead and of course we hit the Blue Jays in the afternoon as well as the Rockies. That puts us on a 7-1 run this week and simply up a ton in MLB. Also simply hammered another total and that keeps us at about 59% for the last 20 months. Doubtful many can match that in ALL SPORTS. And up almost 50 marbles just since the All Star Break. Don't miss football.

If you're not into a whole season, our 7/30 day packages are discounted at least for Friday as well. Tons of ways to get the winning information.

Also, CFB football packages are up, as are two Triple Dimes for the first week. Prices are still reasonable, and as we do in MLB we'll try to give thoughts on every game. We ended last season on an 11-1 Triple Dime run and just look to take it one day at a time as we always do. Football is indeed more popular, but it's simply another exploitable opportunity is all.

As I have said many times, there are only two sides to every game, the one that wins and the one that does not. There are no gray areas cashing tickets, so the "you had the right side" does not apply here.

[quote user="Volto24"]Great run Dave, you and GF are having excellent MLB seasons. How do you normally do regular season vs. playoffs historically?

[/quote]Full disclosure. Last year in the playoffs I lost a bit. Had some personal distractions, but that doesn't matter. I can find the exact numbers if you want, but from memory I know we went backwards in the MLB Playoffs. Historically, it's all one season to me, and I am more selective with only a few games.

free pick 136 La.-Monroe 2.5 (-110) BetOnline vs 135 Wake Forest
We released this to our long term subscribers at +3.5 last week. I might buy it back to +3 for arguments sake, but wanted to share this as well as what we plan on doing all year with other games.
Welp, it appears we got the best of the number, which is half the battle. These two teams met last year at Wake, and ULM actually beat them SU as a +2.5 point underdog. So, one would think Wake has revenge, but not on the road. ULM did lose some in the off-season, but they gained a QB. Senior transfer (from NC State) Pete Thomas, who went to ULM when Dave Doeren (new Wolfpack coach) said that Jacoby Brissett would start the next two years. Brissett is a Florida transfer. Thomas also played at Colorado State for two years, so he's got something to prove. He's not the be all, end all, or he'd still be in NC State, but he's a far better QB than a true Freshman (John Wolford) starting his first career game on the road. Dave Clawson comes from Bowling Green to be the first year Deacons coach, so we've got a first year coach and a true Freshman QB on the road. Yes, Wolford broke all Tebow's High School Florida records. But, this is a quantum leap. Wake brings back NONE of their starting backfield and only three offensive lineman. Not good, IMO. And they bring back ZERO of their defensive line. ULM brings back almost their entire defense, and defenses are almost always ahead of offenses early on, and Wake couldn't score LAST year with everyone that departed. Wake in their last 20 road games are 5-15 SU and not much better ATS. ULM has won SU three of their last four as a +4 underdog or less, and the loss of Price for Wake is far more significant than the loss of Browning for ULM. Wake was awful last year, and although ULM wasn't a juggernaut, Wake shouldn't be favored here, not with their lack of offense or defense from last season, minus the graduates.

Early thoughts on other Thursday games.
Being a Gamecock fan I am trying to be unbiased here. The loss of Shaw might be bigger than people think. Dylan Thompson simply isn't going to run, although he does have a better arm and they do have skill position players on offense. I suspect Spurrier may play it close to the vest here, not wanting to put Thompson in harms way early. Their defense without Clowney will obviously suffer, but their DB's are simply raw, IMO. So, no Manziel or Mike Evans, either. I still wouldn't lay the points at this point in time, and think it does stay under.
Unusual for Tulsa and Tulane to open with a Conference game. Tulsa lost at Tulane last season 14-7, which is one reason why the total may be so low. Both teams bring back most of their starters, so I actually lean over a little. We'll wait and see what the line does. 5 is a dead number, and if we took the points we'd want +6 and if we took the over we'd want it at less than 48.
I will almost always fade SEC teams on the road (or at home) against non-conference teams. They're almost always over valued, and this is probably no exception. Mississippi hasn't been a double-digit road favorite in quite some time, and that current total of 56 may be a bit too high. I do expect Ole Miss to have a great defense, so IMO right now that may be the best play in the game.
The best numbers are gone if you wanted to take Temple, and after what Vanderbilt did last season they're clearly going to be an early public team, so that early scalping of +17 isn't unexpected. Right now I don't like this game much at all.
Rutgers always has a good defense, but they don't play teams like Washington State very often. Rutgers goes to the B-10 and brings a ton of people back, while WSU brings a ton back, especially on offense. I can see this game staying reasonably close for the 1H, but the speed at which WSU runs their offense may wear out Rutgers in the 2H if they can't create some turnovers. Every WSU game will have a big total for obvious reasons, so we'll wait and see here. Perhaps I could tease Rutgers to more than +14, and we rarely tease totals. 
As always, this is an early look and we'll update things closer to game-day.
