Follow the yellow brick road.

It's a mismatch in C-Vallis....Duck Soup for 1.5

The  are not that bad at home especially. .. getting Gidget (17)

And the Toe Jams on the road?  I'll take 7

Honorable Mention: Utah -3.    I mean really - little Bobby Hurley?   He makes Magic look like a great coach.

Thank you Zags.  Yes, I assume he knows English too. 

 

However, in the context I wrote....it was fairly obvious.  ASU was pounded by Utah at home last month and would like to return the favor on Saturday.  On the other hand, ASU wiped the floor with Colorado last month.  It's only human nature - especially in dealing with kids - that you're going to "look ahead" a little bit.  That bit less of intensity can cause the difference in close games with fairly evenly matched teams - which these ones were.

 

That said, my reasoning turned out to be somewhat faulty as ASU put up a fight - and if not for some fine shooting by Colorado (and the always reliable bad coaching by Little Bobby Hurley), the pick may not have won.

BOL to you - always enjoy your picks over in the NBA.

And....ASU pounded the Buffs in Tempe last month

Lookahead usually refers to the next game - which for ASU is the Utah team that slapped them in Tempe last month.

Classic lookahead spot for the Devils.....and the Buffs have shown some nice improvement lately.  It's worth giving a buck-fifty to the Boulder Boys.

I understand what you are saying - it's one of the more common "traditional" thoughts on betting.  However, if you have followed Indie - and others like him over the years - you would see that the large number of picks (yes, despite the juice on losses) is actually beneficial to spreading the risk in a system that is based on betting broadly across the board.

 

In the financial investment world, you see this in Mutual Fund and Bond investing.  You know that some are going to be stinkers...you just try to have a selection criteria that gives you an overall profit with a "basket" of stocks and/or bonds.  Those that have tried to "select" the winners (i.e. making fewer "bets") find themselves subject to huge swings in portfolios that can damage their "bankroll".

 

This is Indie's style - and it is remarkably profitable.  You may want to look for "Lower volume" cappers - which you can find in CoversCapReport's excellent threads.

 

To put it another way...if you want a running QB - don't pick Brady or Ryan for your team!

OH NO!!!!  PLEASE don't stop tailing!!!  an_laughWhat will we do without your future posts like the amazing last 12??!!!  The HORROR!!!!

 

Do like your strategy.  Only following a years-long excellent capper when he is hot.  Then NOT following when he hits a rough patch - that will keep you from hitting any new winning streak.    Especially in the long run.  an_laughYou're BRILLIANT!!!

 

Yeah...you're right.  If someone told me at the beginning of the NBA Season that following LC would result in being up 34 units at the All Star Break with both winning and losing streaks to get there....I would have no doubt been OUTRAGED.  In fact, I an_laughmay just give my $$,$$$ back to the sportsbook!!!!

 

I'd give the $$,$$$ to all of you "after the fact" trolls in this thread...but of course, you wouldn't accept the $$,$$$.  After all, YOU ARE ALL MAKING SO MUCH MORE THAN LC WITH YOUR OWN PICKS -an_laugh picks that are SO GOOD, you can't post them or all the books will go out of business!!!!

 

Thank you for trolling!!!  Like the DUMBASS I am, I will continue to just follow LC and continue to make 5 figures every NFL and NBA season...which OF COURSE...is a mere pittance compared to all of the $$$,$$$,$$$ you trolls are making! (No doubt stashing it all in your Mommy's basement under the cushion of that 1972 sofa you sleep on.)

 

Thank you Trolls!!!

What a cute little guy you must be.  Did you lose those 7 quarters you found in Mommy's couch betting on Mr. Train's picks?  Put your skirt back on and go back to selling Girls Scout cookies.  Poor baby.

Like any business...there are complainers, and sure, sometimes the business has a bad day (Believe it or not, Microsoft and Google and every small business has had unprofitable days!)

 

So what?  At the end of the season/year, etc.....the good and successful businesses show a nice profit and the complainers (i.e. trolls) are nothing.  This is normal, no big deal.  Complainers and trolls are the losers that can't make any $$$$.  If they were making ANYTHINg, they wouldn't be complaining following an excellent capper this season like Sing.

 

They are immaterial.  What matters is PROFIT.  And Sing has me WAY up this season.

well go check out his last 2 post for nba and do the calculations. Like i said i could be wrong but, this record is not accurate

 

Slappy,

You're new.  You might want to check full records - check out Covers Cap Report, who keeps detail %'s and rankings on all cappers.  

The Scotland & Ireland golf vacation (including tickets to the British Open) I just bought for this summer was courtesy of some of my winnings from NuSkool.   Won't be too worried if the record was off by a game or so when I'm drinking Scotch at St Andrews !

Spend your time learning from the proven cappers here....it's a lot more profitable than tossing nickels around like manhole covers.

Good luck to you.

Relax Harold.  You won both Boston bets and you're going to win the Thunder 3 ways.

5-3 is still $$$.
