Home Dogs Baby

I don't post that much anymore I just noticed. Perhaps I'm working too hard?

I did very well this weekend and I didn't play a hand of poker and if you read this blog you can probably guess why. As I told everyone in the girly chat this week, the home dogs would be barking and man not only barking but biting too.

Five Home Dogs, Five Covers, Three Outright winners. Yes there was a few back door covers but hey a win is a win. The favorite bettors have been losing on most weeks, some weeks worse than others, but this week did them in good.

When Cleveland and Buffalo both came back and covered there was myself and my one buddy cheering as the rest of the casino was in stunned silence. In weeks past the favorites were done early so most bettors knew they were beat but this last week hurt them even more since it seemed like they were easy victorys.

You have to remember that if it appears too good to be true 80% of the time its too good to be true. Beware of the traps.

The College Bowl season will soon be upon us and as the song goes, "It's the most wonderful time of the Year!" It's the season to win some serious money with good handicapping and making some much bigger bets than usual. Find the mismatch and hammer it.

Yes I know this is suppose to be a poker blog but right now poker has become secondary. I like the action of sports betting and the studying to find winners much more than sitting at a table and playing one hand every fifteen minutes. I will continue to play and work on my poker game because this is Vegas and there are too many bad tourists sitting down day after day that I can't pass up on the profits.

I guess what will be interesting over time is what becomes the primary focus. It seems a lot more people win at poker than sports betting but I've always had a knack for understanding point spreads (no the casino doesn't always want equal action on both sides) and as I continue to learn and my confidence grows I hope to be a player. Where as most of you dream of cashing in a WPT or WSOP event or maybe even winning bracelets my dreams are to become a player that casinos fear, a guy that is so good a picking winners that he has ability to change point spreads, the guy that people want to know, "Which side is he on?"

Well I hope everyone made some money on the games this weekend and that you're staying profitable at the tables.

sounds like your doing well with the sports handicapping. but, with so many bad players within a stones throw, i don't see how you can pass on stacking donks all day.

Hey Don, would you mind posting some of your picks in advance. I may want to piggyback on your bets.
