    A couple of very close calls that didn't go quite my way last night. Resulted in a disappointing night, so the slump continues. Thank you all for the good vibes though; we are still performing better with them! Looking for a nice night tonight to get back on track!

    POR/OKC under 206
    DAL -7
    ORL/DAL over 214
    LAL -6.5
    SAC/LAL over 214

    Last night: 4-6 (40.0%)


    Season Statistics
    Overall: 58-61-1 (48.8%)

    Frustrating night yet again. I apologize to all viewers of this thread for the recent slump. I am lucky I don't play on the vast majority of these, but I am still disappointed with my efforts. Frustratingly, I went 7-3 on my college basketball picks last night and have been hitting well there lately. NBA has been a struggle.

    I think I am overthinking a lot of these and relying on the quantitative analysis/trends too much. I think I would have done much better if I gut-checked a lot of these picks. I talked myself out of what turned out to be correct picks last night. Also, I am pissed I picked the Clippers/Warriors game before I knew the Splash brothers were both sitting.

    We got the London game today, and a few more other tricky match-ups tonight. I tend to do well on Thursday's. So maybe today will be good. Bring the good vibes!

    Here are the picks:

    1/11

    BOS -3
    BOS/PHI over 211
    CLE -3.5
    CLE/TOR under 222
    SAC s/u
    LAC/SAC over 211
    SAS -3
    SAS/LAL over 211

    Last night: 9-13 (40.9%)


    Season Statistics
    Overall: 70-79-1 (47.0%)

    2017: 23-26-1
    2018: 47-53


    ATS: 35-37-1
    ML: 4-7
    O/U: 31-35

    The slump continues. I won't vent about it, but I apologize for publishing this mediocrity. Again, I don't play on the vast majority of these so I am lucky in that sense. But I will continue to pursue green on this thread. Now more than ever, we need the good vibes!

    Fun fact: I am hitting 65.5% when at least one person says "Good Luck" before the start of the night's games, and hitting only 39.7% when no one does. Like I said, BRING THE GOOD VIBES!

    Thank you!

    Already off to a better start today. The "Good Luck" theory is holding true once again! Check out my thread in the college basketball forum as well to see!

    Finally got a day over .500, as we finally got a "Good Luck" comment to make the theory apply.

    But let me vent: Wizards and Warriors should've covered. And maybe the Nuggets and Spurs wouldn't have covered the point total anyway, but @Nuggets: score more than 5 points in the first 11 minutes of a quarter, please! For god's sake!

    Gotta be happy with 6-1 on O/U's, but man this should've been a 10-4 day at least. Good god.

    I got my rant about the Wizards and Warriors out in my last post. I laid off the Bucks/Heat game, though I was tempted to pick the Bucks ML. Thank you for the good vibes yesterday, as we finally had a day over .500. Good luck comments work!

    Knicks s/u
    Suns +4
    Trail Blazers +6

    Just a heads up for readers: I have a thread on the College Basketball picks, and I am doing A LOT better there right now. Six straight days of profits:

    7-3
    12-7-1
    6-4
    6-4
    6-4
    7-3

    I'm hitting 60% over there so far through 90 picks (53-35-2). Hopefully some of that success can carry over to NBA soon as I try to pick my way out of this slump. I believe I will, slowly but surely.
