Yesterday, you were told, “There are so many stunning angles that make tonight one of the strongest cards of any in 2013.” Promises made, promises delivered goes 5-1 with Houston +163 winning, plus underdog Oakland as the MLB Game of the Month winning 10-2. Oh, we hit the only play Sunday, also Oakland as a Wise Guy, hence make us 6-1 the last two days.
In MLB we are 15-9 with Wise Guys but the biggest juice we laid on a loser was (-109). Along the way we have had winners of +132, +177, and the previously alluded to +163.
Here is an example of the kind of insight you get every day:
MIAMI -7 Indiana
We will grant you, we have had many better NBA postseasons. However, that super bounce back angle continues to thrive in betting home faves in the playoffs off off a double-digit road loss is now 66-41 covering for you and me the last four.
Also, with the back to the wall, look for one of the most talented teams in history to respond in big fashion.
Indiana-Miami UNDER 180.5
