    day 1 5/16/2010

    guess I will start on how I did the 3 games that I pick in MLB and the 3 picks I made in NBA for todays games

    Mlb...last night when the line come out I spend 1 hour breaking all games down 6 pm....at 10 pm I relook and fit each game in to the 3 system I use...than with my coffee in hand at 6AM this Morning I check line movements and make the picks....Before I send my picks to Docsports which need write ups that go live at noon today...
    I make my bets looking for the bets line...which I did...than I send out a e-mail list to docsports should them my whole record and what I did last night. After that I have a e-mail list that I send my friends that are on the list...than I send to therx my games for Ace-Ace MLB Weekend Basball Picks promo. and : ACE-ACE NBA Playoff Promo Plays. that you can get free.

    At that point I like to spend 30 min's working out and sitting in my Spa for 15 mins with my coffee After that I send to my writer why I like the game...than he does the write up for me...

    its now 8:30 Am est and I alway have Palladia on the TV watching music videos and waiting for the wife to wake up by 9 Am...pancakes sound good today...Ihop is in the plan...

    will be back

    in MLB sweep my 3 games...bring my week-end record to 8-3 +11 units

    looks like I made Orl my fav in the 1st half and lost...but got the under in my thread there a fine line in putting up one of those games over the other...but I do have a under189.5 for the game that should hit

    99 system
    every sunday I spend a hour looking at the 1st week of the season...we have done 6 games base only on last year stats that the 99 system is looking at...as of now I have 4 99 system plays base on last year stats...the key is to watch whos in and whos out and than watch them in preseason before it can truely be a 99 system play..still have 4 more games to break down.

    Crab legs and beer for dinner with a few friend watching the game...its half time and want some more crab before its gone....

    got up at 5 am one hour ago...made the bets than send them out to docsports and the e-mail list...3 picks in MLB and 2 NBA plays...feel good about them...

    day work got me biding on two jobs and working on another

    lot of calls to make


    looking at a number we did on a game...wow!!! 159 to 21...never saw so weak of a number of a team that should keep up with the other at home...unless something happen in perseason...this will be a 99 play for sure

    what was your 99 play? i thought the 99 system was only for NFL.. are you trying to tweak it for other sports?

    you think with your 99 system because it is so successful and it has a short amount of plays, when NFL season starts you think it will be worthwhile betting something like 5% of my bankroll each pick?

    its only for NFL...I was looking at week 1 lines and doing the number on the game that fit...one jump out !!!

    cant tell you what to bet but with this system hitting over 70% for many years...what would you do...

    (Dear Diary ) 5-18-10

    won 4 of the 5 game I posted 2-1 MLB 2-0 NBA
    I was so busy on monday I was going to post LAL -3 1st half as the pick in my money thread...and forgot!!..

    hot on NFL week 1 and putting last year number to work on them....this will be only a starting point as I need to see Preseason...also after I do all the numbers ..I will be doing myline and setting up all the paper...I like doing it base on doing it on paper...you can have it in your hand. I also have a sheet that update by itself each week...but it dont kick in until week 4 100%....so the 1st 3 week is the key for me and doing it on paper helps.

    talking to Jeff tonight about the system (one that share this and we came in 3rd place in the hilton)

    After the call from Jeff last night...he got me think...are you going to double think yourself by doing 3 names in the "hilton contest" this year

    see

    the goal last year was to see if I'm as good as the rest of the world in NFL

    well
    out of 328 that got in we came in 3rd!!!...this year I feel ,,,I'm better than 2/3 of the one that put there money down....so I have a 1 in 100 shoot to win it or a 1 in 20 shoot to get into the money

    this year it will be Jeff/Ace
    QOH/Ace'
    and
    Ace-Ace

    all trying to get the win

    the goal would be
    1st
    2nd
    and 3rd....

    to get into a contest like this you need a team...no one person can see it all...diff/views/is the key!!

    Jeff just think it may be too much....something to think about

    NBA playoff...LAL vs Pho games will be better to win money vs the Bos vs Orl games...I know just what to do with those two team (lal-Pho)....I'm shock that Boston is up two games!!

    I made the Lal 1st half-3.5 my game of the week at docsports and made in sales over $800 on just that game...see when you put a GOTW up the players come...we can do only one a week....rare for me to do a game of the month and a game of the year...because all game I bet have the same edge(some are better).....what I mean is its a gut feeling to make a 3 units game one unit higher... but I have to play the game over there....Something to think about....my betting record is 171-135 +80 units in NBA...but at docsports I'm only up 75 units...the fact is I have to do thing vs what I bet...if you are seeing what I bet...you are the lucky ones!!

    1. How did u get into gambling? A friend

    2. When you started how small were ur bets before u got into the hundreds per unit...had a great job so I was betting $100-$300 a game

    3. is betting ur main income or ur side income?...have a business during the day and have over 15 workers...have 9 rentals...a capper at docsports and I have alot of Investments

    4. When u started did u get into a hole of losses because u were impatient and had no proper system in place...when I was 19 years old I did a lot of bad plays...when I got to be a book when I was 29...that's when I learn alot.
    from my Bio at docsports::::
    stated a small book business in which he served more than 100 clients. During that time, he made many connections at different books in New York, Chicago and Detroit. He came in contact with a handful of sharp bettors that bet $5,000 to $20,000 per game.




    In 1995, I sold his book business to a local, who in turn became one of the biggest local bookies in the nation. To this day, I gets key information on where the smart money is coming in on crucial games. That type of information is priceless in this industry. Because of his time on the "other side of the counter", I knows all about how lines are made and why they move. I developed a system that tells me what the line will be before it is released and he is correct in 80 percent of his opening line predictions. For the other 20 percent, well that is where he makes his profits. With his system, he sets a value for the difference between the line and what will happen in a game.





    Have has won in the NFL in 13 out of 16 years.

    5. how manny years u been betting in total now? when I was a book from 1979 to 1995 I did not bet...I took a LOT of money from all the players...that's a story by itself...I'm 56 years old ...so you could say I been in this business for 37 years

    Best to you

    (Dear Diary ) 5-21-10

    weekend is coming close...plan on doing a simple dinner and show tonight...MLB I have 3 picks all have small edge...not what I would love to see...so I call this a weak day in sports...got a e-mail last night saying "Are you sure only 30% of capper bet there own games??"...most treat this as any business...once they are done making the picks they go home to the wife and kids...some of the "procappers" that dont bet can be good...but the ones that do 10 units 100 units plays is a joke...at docsports most plays are from 1-4...game of the week no more that a 6 unit...gotm 5-7 units...and once a season a goty for 8 units....in the NFL if I was to play a 7-8 unit play....my 10 tools I use...8 of them would have to point to this game. its so easy for some "pros" to toss a game like that up...just to make sales.

    I totally disagree with him this time .....3 tickets are much better than 1 .

    1st , Second, and Third ...we are gonna bring them all home....what does that come out to be in $$$ ? about $500,000 ? oh yes ...oh yes .....This is gonna be so much fun this year .


    7 am in the morning if you can ....let me know .
