You've got the value on those bets, I would let it all ride. Maybe if the bets are bigger than your usual bet you could hedge a little and get a half of your stake back, but if the bets arent higher than normal, I'd let it all go, just because of the value compared with the current market

No single play on a card of 100 games 

Selective cappers make the best profit, see you tomorrow

What is a "rot number" and where do I find this? :)

Small loss, just because I was stupid to take Memphis +2.5. Memphis +3 was only available in one bookie, and at a lower odd (like -115/-120), I took the +2.5 at -103...

Oh well, lesson learned, and up to the next day

I think that's called discipline

Oops, you're right!

At least I had the right game in my mind, pretty good considering the enormous amount of teams in this competition

South Dakota State against North Dakota State if I remember well?

Oh and wonderfull write-ups he has 

Before this season I never saw one College basketball game in my life (now I don't see much neither, because it's always in the middle of the night unfortunately), but nowadays I'm reading most of the write-ups, and even for someone who doesn't know shit about this sport, they are fascinating to read

What does losing his first one have to do with this one?

Ok, calling a play "Play of the Year" if there are more than 1 of them isn't the most logical thing.

And about the backlash, I guess people are smart enough to understand that (1.) they make the choice to follow him, so don't complain when it loses because you got the pick for free, and (2.) most people probably are smart enough to understand that they shouldn't suddenly place more than their own maximum wager on a bet, because somebody else does.

A disciplined punter doesn't bet more than the maximum bet he agreed with himself, losing a bet like that is a shame, but it won't kill your week or something like that.

Or simply have accounts at 20+ books, because of course shopping around for the best lines and odds makes a punter profitable

Even missed the biggest play of the year by the way (forgot the team, it was some days ago, 4 units spread and 2 units ML), or else it would have been even better

136.6% Return on investment so far with your plays (after 112 units staked), absolutely amazing!

You think it will be possible to find a stream for SDSU/CSU? Would be nice watching a game with a big bet before bedtime

I don't know a thing about CBB, but am always eager to learn. Therefore my question: What do things like this have to do with a game of today?
For example, it's nice that they won 14 of the last 15 against CSU, but wasn't that with completely different teams?
