    Going to start publishing my picks and counting them now. Have been having a very profitable season overall. The record I post will reflect picks from 12/26 and on. I will not be posting profit units, only record. I generally will make around 10 picks per day, given the amount of picks available. With that said, here are today's picks:


    12/26


    IND s/u
    TOR -6
    TOR/DAL over 209
    ORL/MIA over 205
    MIL -6.5
    SAS -11
    PHX s/u
    MEM/PHX over 205
    DEN -6
    LAC -5


    Last night: 0-0 (0%)
    Overall: 0-0 (0%)


    Good luck!

    All I had to do was bet against the Kings, and it would've been a perfect 10-0 last night! I got trapped chasing value, even though Charlotte was the logical pick there.

    The "Good Luck" comments are the key to success here! I am now 20-7-1 when someone comments "Good Luck" prior to the games! I will keep track of this statistic in my posts from now on.

    Doing 12 picks tonight, here they are:


    1/3

    HOU/ORL over 219
    SAS s/u
    NYK +9
    MIN/BKN under 215
    DET +2.5
    CLE s/u
    TOR/CHI over 216
    IND/MIL over 210
    GS -7.5
    DEN -11.5
    UTH -1.5
    OKC/LAL over 211

    Last night: 9-1 (90.0%)


    Season Statistics


    Overall: 37-30-1 (55.1%)
    2017: 23-26-1
    2018: 14-4


    ATS: 18-16-1
    ML: 3-3
    O/U: 16-11

    "Good Luck" comments:
    With: 20-7-1
    Without: 17-23


    Good luck!

    Disappointing 5-7 night after the big 9-1 night on Tuesday. The "Good Luck" theory holds true yet again, so bring the good vibes! The good news is we are staying pretty hot with the over/under picks (9-1 last two nights).

    Only two games today, so only 4 picks:

    1/4

    GS -5
    GS/HOU over 230
    OKC -2
    OKC/LAC under 214

    Last night: 5-7 (41.7%)


    Season Statistics

    Overall: 42-37-1 (53.1%)
    2017: 23-26-1
    2018: 19-11


    ATS: 19-20-1
    ML: 3-5
    O/U: 20-12

    "Good Luck" comments:
    With: 20-7-1
    Without: 22-30


    Good luck!

    A disappointing 7-9 day yesterday. There were so many close over/under's, and they all pretty much fell on the wrong side. Luckily I didn't make plays on any of those. FYI: I don't actually play on the majority of these. Just on some. I try to pick a good amount for practice though.

    The "good luck" theory holds true yet again! Please bring the good vibes! SEE STATISTICS BELOW

    Two picks for all five games today, so 10 total. Here they are: 1/7

    MIA -4
    UTH/MIA under 197
    NYK +5.5
    NYK/DAL over 207
    PHX +8.5
    OKC/PHX over 219
    POR -2
    SAS/POR under 199
    ATL +3.5
    ATL/LAL under 217

    Last night: 7-9 (43.8%)


    Season StatisticsOverall: 52-47-1 (52.5%)
    2017: 23-26-1
    2018: 29-21
