smooth d, i use a strange system of Hot/Cold. im sure someone will make a smart behind comment but here is what i do....I go by +/- points scored against oponents. and their current win/loss streak....let me explain       if a team 1 is = +7 points against oponents and are 8-2 last ten games and are playing a team 2 thats -3 points against oponents and are 1-9 last ten games and the spread is team 1 is a -5 fav.........its a high percentage game.   now if team two is 7-3 last ten........they are play well as of late and will most likely beat the spread. people look at stats that are old i don't care if pheonix is 12-2 against philly going back to 2002, players change ......to me its about current momentum.....follow me?

Good Luck! The purpose of this thread is to get you to W21 to bag that $25K and with a little luck you can get the big one $100K. Keep coming back and implement some of the strategies and picks that other members have.

Yohey-Thats a very interesting system and its the kind of hard information that we need to get us to the top. I also see that your longest streak is in double digits so you have established credibility. Keep coming back and give us your insight and picks. Thanks.

Hi, I'm new at betting and its lingo. What is meant by "push"?

push is a tie. neither side wins

 

If team A plays team B in Basketball or football and team A is -4 on the spread and score is

Team A 56

Team B 52

Since Team A is -4 you would subtract 4 from their total making it 52-52 (push)

Denver came through over the Wizards covering the -5, giving me a W1.

Gotta luv the Carolina hurricanes tomorrow and Louisville cards  W7 is also my highest streak, it was broken by the over 55 pick in the Nebraska/Texas A&M NCAAF game. Those two never made it into the endzone and had a 9-6 final. What an embarrassing pick, that went under by 40 points.

I'm in no way a streak survivor pro only posting a 7 game streak for my high, but in my opinion the only way to win this thing is by applying some patience.  You basically have 25 weeks to hit this streak so take your time and look for the value in the numbers.

Anyways...good luck

Yes we have the North Carolina Under for the streak and side bet on North Carolina straight up. I do think North Carolina has an excellent chance of beating the Canes in a low scoring affair.

Quad- I think the Hornets -2 would be the best way to go. The Hornets are hot lately especially on the road. They smoked by Atlanta by almost 50 points in Atlanta last week.

I think the Hornets -2 is a good play. The Hornets have been hot lately. They smoked Atlanta by almost 50 points in Atlanta last week.

Sometimes it better to be lucky than good. I think it's safe to say that tonight we got lucky on this Under with North Carolina-Miami, but hey it all counts right?! Well it counts for us. Go cash in boys we're starting to get serious about this streak thing. Like I said before the smart way to do this is  to make your single bets with your sportsbook and put some money in your pocket. SmoothD Out!

Getrdonrite-Actually you should have rolled with us with North Carolina and not the Canes. We had the Under and North Carolina straight up. Get another streak going tomorrow and tell us some of your picks.

The Hawks had an 11 point lead and are lost to the Bucks. The Hawks are at full strength and the Bucks are missing practically their entire team and the Hawks decided not to show up in the 4th quarter. I'm never picking the Hawks again. I should ahve picked the over 180.5 for the game instead.

#### Hawks how do you get outscored by 19 in the 4th quarter to the Bucks? Thanks a lot how much did the NBA pay you to throw this game. This is why high streaks are so hard, because my picks decide to blow a double digit lead to a team that is 10 games under .500

I should have listened to your advice, instead out of Nuggets -2 (which I eliminated from consideration), Hornets -2 and Hawks -2 I had to take the only one who chokes. The under 220 seemed to good to be true but the Hawks gave me the same result that the under 220 pick would have given me..... a loss and back to 0 again. I thought picking a team that was at full strength against a team without 3 or 4 starters means an easy victory. I guess not with the Hawks who can turn evil at any given game or quarter for that matter.

Quad- I would leave the Hawks alone for awhile. Any team that loses by almost 50 points at home in the NBA needs to be taken out back and summarily shot. It's Ok tomorrow is a new day and you will get your streak going again.
