    I'm not touting. This is more of a place where I'm tracking my own picks.

    A little background: I'm pretty superstitious about posting picks. I feel like the more I do it, the less I win. I get on a hot streak after not sharing and then share again and BAM... lose. Rinse and repeat.

    I'd like to see how I fare over the long haul over just posting them and keeping track since I never really do it. And, I don't want to keep polluting PTs thread. He does a great job of posting his own picks and it's been inspirational to me.

    Record: 0-0-0

    First pick:
    Wichita St. -18 -105

    Not very sexy but they're ranked 24th with a record of 17-6, they're pretty good ATS away (6-3 road, 8-2 overall L10), they're playing a bad team (6-18) that's on an ATS losing streak (1-7 home, 2-8 overall L10), they have a great defense, and their last game they were recently shocked by Illinois State while on the road.

    Thanks! I should have added that I've read at least one professional tout pick Drake.

    great start!

    I was really liking Texas-Arlington tonight, but they lost their stud Kevin Hervey for the year recently and I stayed away. Damn they are cruising by more than 20 and only had to give 4. TA had lost 5 of 6 without him but appear to be righting the ship tonight.

    I've bet UT-A this season. Not a bad team. For a while they were really hot on the road.

    Record:

    NCAAB: 1-0-0

    Pick:
    Seton Hall -2.0 -110

    Tonight there are several decent plays but the one play that fits my system the best is Seton Hall. This is not a standard play for me as I tend to lean more towards playing the smaller conferences that don't get much attention like the Sun Belt or the CAA.

    Butler is 3-4 SU on the road this season while going to 2-5 ATS on the road and 3-6 ATS overall L10. Meanwhile, Seton Hall is 11-2 SU at home while going 9-3 ATS at home and 8-2 ATS overall L10. Seton Hall tends to play more defense than Butler doesn't play like they do at home.

    I've been looking for hockey plays lately and none have presented themselves.

    UPDATE: I got Seton Hall at -2 so I booked it at that price. It may drop another half, but I'm pretty happy with -2 since it opened at -3.5. For some reason Bovada doesn't post their basketball lines until about 1130 EST everyday. But, I have noticed that Bovada has very competitive lines for the teams I like to bet. For instance, I got Broncos +6 on Super Bowl Sunday when the line was between 4.5 and 5.5 everywhere else I looked. Not that I needed the extra point and a half, but it never hurts to have extra points in your favor!

    You mention Bovads having some tasty lines from time to time. They shade towards favorites and trend more recreational bettors so if you like a dog always check them bc you should get some nice lines

    I've found 5Dimes lines to be consistently better (and with less juice) and posted way sooner than Bovada.
