In the past two weeks, I’ve gone 16-6 with my sports betting picks. Sounds unbelievable I know considering I’ve been bouncing around from NFL to NBA to College Football. What’s more unbelievable is how little I actually know about each of the sports. My general philosophy is that you don’t have to know specifically about the teams but a dissection of the line with a combination of whether the team is playing well or on a losing streak. 3 of those wins have come off of Sixers covers and that’s because the Sixers started off the season poorly, have a bad record, and have just started to play much better basketball. If you can take advantage of situations like that where their record might be 6-15 but they lost 3 that they should have won, these are times when the shitty team can cover against big spreads. Tonight they square off against the Nets in New Jersey as 2 point favorites. The Nets haven’t covered in their last 5 and the Sixers have in all of their last 5. I’m going to put myself out there and say that I think that the Sixers are going to cover this spread. I’m not going to bet my house on the game and it has setup written all over it because that simple analysis is what the bookies expect the public to do. The fun part about gambling is that if you think that is what they want you to think, you take the Nets. I try not to over think games though because it just makes for a mess. Stay tuned.
