Without a doubt, my favorite win came in Game 6 of the 2021 Western Conference Semifinals, when I took the Clippers on the moneyline as home underdogs to the Jazz. With L.A. down 25 in the third, I turned the game off to head out and enjoy my Friday night. Sure enough, they cut it to 10 entering the fourth and my friend and I found the one TV in this highly pretentious New York City bar we were in. We were going absolutely insane as L.A. rained down threes and won by 12. It was one of the greatest comebacks I've ever seen.

There have been so many that it's hard to remember, but I think the one that sticks out the most is taking Daniil Medvedev to win the 2020 Australian Open. In the middle of his insane run in the Summer of 2019, I managed to find a stale line on him to win the 2020 AO at around 20-to-1. He managed to close around 5-to-1 as one of the favorites to win the tournament only to lose to an aging Stan Wawrinka in the Fourth Round as a -400 favorite. To rub salt in the wound, he'd go to the final of the Australian Open the next two seasons and won his first Grand Slam a season later.
