    Wed. Oct.18 - NLCS game 4 (adding unit)

    CHICAGO -106
    // 1.06 unit to win 1

    Already posted play Cubs for 1 unit at -110
    Adding 1 more unit at -106
    So now have 2.16 units to win 2 on the Cubs tonight

    Cubs not gonna win this Series but hard to get swept. Also adding-on because my Yankees play appears to be a winner (not yet) so its better to press when hot, instead of chase when cold.

    No idea what to think of the Over/Under 9.5
    but lean Over if you are interested. Thanks men and goodnight. Got an early day tomorrow, gonna try to get over to Ramparts if travel plans pan out.

    Bizarre karma play. Granderson and Ethier not in starting lineup for Dodgers.

    HOUSTON -155 moneyline
    // 1.55 units to win 1
    PROP-EXTRA INNINGS YES +840

    If your book offers the Extra Inning prop, I'd highly consider it.
    Hate the number I'm getting on Houston by waiting, but I have them winning a close one tonight.

    Was missing a key piece of information for Game 7, woulda never made the pick if had known it.
    As a result, Yankees didn't score and lost 4-0

    Wed. Oct.25 - World Series game 2

    using last night's win, investing in two picks:

    HOUSTON -102 // 1.02 unit to win 1
    EXTRA INNINGS PROP +815 // 1 unit to win 8.15

    Verlander has proven to be the CURRENT best pitcher in MLB since being traded to the Astros, look at the numbers if you have any doubt. With the Dodgers as an opponent, the game cannot be considered a lock, and I thought about First Five innings pick but rather than get cute with that, gonna fire a bullet at the Extra Innings prop.

    Friday Oct.27 - World Series game 3

    LOS ANGELES +129
    // 1 unit to win 1.29

    Game 3 is the first game of 3 to be held in Houston for this World Series.

    It is basically Game 1 of a now best of 5 series.

    Houston does not have the same convincing Home Field advantage for this game, the way Los Angeles did for game 1 at home.

    HOUSTON -120 // 1.20 units to win 1
    OVER 8.5 -110 // 1.10 units to win 1

    Dodgers have not stepped up to the challenge, showing little reason to back them. Thinking the remaining games in the Series will go Over the total.

    EXTRA INNINGS +790 // 1 unit to win 7.90

    Cannot bring myself to follow thru on the Over tonight, although I want to. Picked wrong the last two games, so why not get action on an Extra Inning game in Houston.....we had one in L.A. .....and with these starters going, could be a real cheek squeezer tonight.

    Tuesday Oct.31 - World Series game 6

    HOUSTON +120
    1.8084 units to win 2.17

    Verlander is the best chance for Houston to grab the victory. I'm also thinking the bullpens are so shot at this point that it's not helping the notion of a Game 7. After their game 1 win the Dodgers have lost 3 of 4 games, and it reminds me to some degree of the late-season skid they had. Also their closer Jansen has been ineffective and unable to finish the games he has been called upon. When you consider that Kershaw has not lived up to his "best pitcher in the world" status in this series, I just don't think the Dodgers deserve the World Championship.

    Tuesday 10/31 & Wednesday 11/1 results, game 6+7 played in L.A.:

    -1.81 HOUSTON moneyline game 6, Tuesday 10/31 (score 3-1)
    +2.90 HOUSTON moneyline game 7, Wednesday 11/1 (score 5-1 HOUSTON WORLD CHAMPIONS)
    -----------------------------
    10/31 + 11/1: +1.09 units (W/L = 1-1)

    Thread: -1.08 units (W/L = 44-50-2 overall = .468 pct)
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    I had a terrible start, but then improvement. Handicapping got stronger.

    Record of 20-12 for +27.04 units from Sept.12 thru end of World Series.

    That was when I stopped picking totals except two spot plays which I split 1-1 on totals. Before that, picking totals is what hurt me most. Totals up to Sept 12 = -21.41 units (W/L = 6-17-1 overall = .260 pct)

    In other words, my thread would be up 20 units if I never played any totals. Or better yet for next year, stay with the same handicapping method for totals and fade it for a nice profit!?!?
