UConn hasn't show up in the 2nd half, barring a miracle back to 0.
I should have taken the Kings over the Pens.

Lucky that Wright St came through for me.  Hardly ever go NHL but I think I'm gonna go with Pens over Islanders.  Islanders got a win vs Montreal last night, but they've got 2 injured goaltenders and are playing a guy they just called up from the minors 5 days ago.  Even without Crosby and Malkin, still gotta like the Pens.  Hopefully, I'll be looking at a W7 tomorrow.  Good luck to everyone else...

Wow, thanks UConn for flushing my W6 down the toilet.  Since this thread is about sharing strategies, I guess losing provides a valuable lesson: Go with your gut and if you're hesitant at all, skip it and move on.

I picked UConn totally at random, and paid for it.  You can't do that when you're trying to be selective.  Unless you're extremely lucky, you can't build a decent streak just by glancing at what's offered, you need to be patient and put the work in.  Next time I get to W5 I'll be sure to remember to be selective.

That said, was NOT expecting THAT from UConn at all.

No worries Agent Cooper. We're all in the same boat and I still firmly believe that someone from this thread is gonna make a serious run at W21 for the $25K and then on to the big money for $100K! Today is a new day lets do it again.

i like the NY Rangers and Hornets tonite. Since I get screw often than NOT in NBA im leaning toward Rangers. Magic are horrendous in covering a big number against elite teams. Could be a revenge spot fa Magic since they lost to Hornets earlier but im gonna stick with Rangers BOL everybody

An unnecessary 3 from Brandon Jennings just ruined two leaderboard streaks who were at 8 and 10. I feel bad for Joehawk and IRONMONKEY.
------------------------
I'm thinking of going for Hornets +3, Mavs -1, Vanderbilt Pick, North Carolina Pick, or Colorado -1.

Now that you said that, you will lose your 9 game streak Kevin. Everybody should pick the opposite of this guy. Going Magic over Lakers -1.5.

Well, I'm staying away from hockey.  Penn St. -2 looks like a good pick.  They've lost 3 in a row, but they've won 4 of their last 5 at home.  Northwestern has lost 4 of their last 5, and they've only won 1 conference road game this year.  Gotta start that new streak!  GL all!
