SO: I'm 14th in pre-season ---pretty well give up for . Wake up this AM and WHAT they have O/Us for the 1st time, not there last night.  Last year I was 8th 'cause games in Europe screwed the finish of ex-bets. Now, I'm thinking most games today WILL go under, BUT only have a chance to bet PM games and some I would not chance.

  What to do? Settle for a hat or go for it RIGHT Go for the .Might be a small chance small prize, but I have enough HATS.

My Troops have lost their edge. My W8 has turned into a L5. Two more losses and I will be with Rick James in L7.

I heard somewhere a while back that streaks end on 8 more than any other number by percentage. I don't know if it is a fact but I have been keeping my eye on it, and it seems to be true. Any kind of streak for that matter. ex. 8 straight home wins, road wins, 8 straight losses, 8 vs. a particular team, ect. Tough, tough number! I'm back on the heat tonight with W5. Good luck everyone!

Good info Sick and now that you mentioned it. I know that there is a site that tracks baseball winning streaks and once it hits 8 the percentage drops. Here is a link http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/blog_article/the-odds-of-winning-streaks/  I use this site alot during baseball season.

I may just take the Miami Heat tonight and with the string of bad luck I'm having that will put an end to their win streak. LOL. I'm not a card carrying Heat hater like I was before because my Lakers are doing so bad. It's hard to hate when your own team sucks.

Thank you very much!  I will take full credit for this streak ending as I predicted I gave Miami the kiss of death by picking them in the middle of my own slump. That's slump is now at L6 and I couldn't be happier as I sacrificed myself for my Lakers! Thank you Chicago!

I'm trying the Leafs tonight for 6 ; it looks pretty good as they have been finding ways to win for a change instead of finding impossible ways to lose(like blowing those 2 goal leads)

Great battle going on in Greeneyed Devils pool between Crush, Smooth, Irisheyez, and Twenty4fps1 for that top prize for the NCAA tournament! Always good to compete with great Cappers! BTW Greeneyed Devils runs pools year round. I encourage everyone to check him out. Small entry fees and he pays out promptly.

Smooth....you hit it right on the money with that baseball tool. Thanks again. Already my second favorite tool beneath covers of course. The situations and streaks are the best part of the game to me. Hot and cold. Who can run it up? I now sit at 94-100-9 all-time survivor. Missed my opportunity for 99-99-9 with the heat loss on my W5. Still a terrible record I would agree with anyone but its been much improved since I started taking it serious and picking every day. I'm stuck on six though. Time to get it rolling! 

 W1 risk on Michigan +2. I did five brackets and have Louisville playing Michigan in all but one so I have to take the points. Those two are basically all that's left of my brackets unfortunate for me but Good Luck everyone on your contests. Hope someone here hits it big!
