Saturday, March 31, 2007 (0-1, -$110)



Cleveland Cavaliers (43-29) at Chicago Bulls (43-30).
Line: Bulls by 2.


What a horrendous night for the system. Let's hope it rebounds. Only one pick today. The system is now 112-87-2 and 95-79-2 documented on this site.

Friday, March 30, 2007 (1-4, -$340)



Toronto Raptors (39-32) at Washington Wizards (38-32).
Line: Wizards by 4.


Missed last night's game by two points. I guess that's why they have a point spread. The system is now 111-83-2 and 94-75-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Wizards -4.
Incorrect; -$110




Milwaukee Bucks (25-45) at Charlotte Bobcats (27-45).
Total: 205.


I can't wait for this game. Is there a more meaningful contest than this Bucks-Bobcats matchup this NBA season? I think not.

Prediction: Under 205.
Correct; +$100




Miami Heat (38-33) at Minnesota Timberwolves (30-41).
Total: 185.


I woke up really early today. We're talking about before 10. I'm typing this at 11:40. I'm already out of it. Need. Coffee. Now.

Prediction: Over 185.
Best Bet No. 1.
Incorrect; -$110




Los Angeles Clippers (34-37) at Sacramento Kings (30-40).

Yeah, I have two best bets going today. I couldn't decide which total I liked more.

Prediction: Kings -4.

Detroit Pistons (45-25) at Chicago Bulls (42-30).
Line: Bulls by 3.


Did the Celtics and Magic really have to go into double overtime? The thing is, my Under still would have hit if the game ended after the first overtime. Talk about having the right side but the wrong result. The system is now 111-82-2 and 94-74-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Bulls -3.

Wednesday, March 28, 2007 (2-3, -$130)



Atlanta Hawks (27-45) at Charlotte Bobcats (26-45).
Line: Bobcats by 4. Total: 191.


Hit my only play last night. Seems to be a lot more tonight. The system is now 109-79-2 and 92-71-2 documented on this site.

Philadelphia 76ers (28-42) at Washington Wizards (37-32).
Total: 206.


They have this lottery projection game on ESPN, where it does the NBA lottery for you if you press a button. I seriously I had to hit the button 300 times before the 76ers came up with either of the top two picks. Ugh. Goodbye, Greg Oden. So long, Kevin Durant.

Prediction: Under 206.
Incorrect; -$110




Orlando Magic (33-38) at Boston Celtics (21-49).
Total: 185.


Doc Rivers should be given a medal of honor for tanking last week's game against Charlotte. Doc knows what it takes to win: Losing on purpose to get the next, great NBA center. But what if the Celtics don't win the lottery, you ask? Don't worry about that; David Stern will just rig it like he always does.

Prediction: Under 185.
Incorrect; -$110




Minnesota Timberwolves (30-40) at Utah Jazz (46-24).
Total: 189.


It's been a while since I've had to write anything semi-creative on this page. Let me talk about 24 for a second. I've gotten used to the show's outrageous plot twists that I thought the mentally challenged guy on Monday's episode was going to turn out to be a regular bad guy with no mental handicap, almost like the end of the Usual Suspects. I love 24.

Prediction: Under 189.

Tuesday, March 27, 2007 (1-0, +$100)



Memphis Grizzlies (17-54) at Los Angeles Lakers (38-32).
Total: 221.


I'm done making weak plays. The last two selections I made I would have weeded out if there were stronger games on the board. I'm done doing that. The system is now 108-79-2 and 91-71-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Under 221.
Best Bet.
Correct; +$100



Monday, March 26, 2007 (0-1, -$110)



Milwaukee Bucks (25-43) at Houston Rockets (44-26).
Total: 199.


Like yesterday, this play isn't my strongest, but it's the only one that fit the system tonight. Let's hope it comes up with multiple picks tomorrow. I'm just not going to force anything. The system is now 108-78-2 and 91-70-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Over 199.
Incorrect; -$110



Sunday, March 25, 2007 (0-1, -$110)



Portland Blazers (29-40) at Minnesota Timberwolves (29-39).
Total: 182.


Nailed the only pick I had last night. When I plug my numbers into a formula, the picks I use are the ones that net a positive number. Well, this came out at just one, so it's one of the system's weaker plays. I'll still list it and bet on it, but I'm not going to make a big play out of it or anything.

The system is now 108-77-2 and 91-69-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Under 182.
Incorrect; -$110



Saturday, March 24, 2007 (1-0, +$100)



Washington Wizards (37-30) at Los Angeles Clippers (33-36).
Line: Clippers by 4.


The good news: The system went 5-1 last night. The bad? My best bet was the single loser. I'll take it. Only one game fits the system tonight. The system is now 107-77-2 and 90-69-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Clippers -4.
Best Bet.
Correct; +$100



Friday, March 23, 2007 (5-1, +$390)



New Jersey Nets (31-37) at Orlando Magic (31-38).
Line: Magic by 2.


I'm done taking Rockets Overs. It's just a flaw in the system. I've already weeded out some of these flaws. The system is now 102-76-2 and 85-68-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Magic -2.
Correct; +$100




Los Angeles Lakers (36-32) at New Orleans Hornets (31-37).
Line: Hornets by 2.


College football is obviously the most corrupt sport on the planet, but I'm beginning to think that college basketball is pretty close. Take the Kansas-Southern Illinois game for instance. The officiating was completely biased toward the Jayhawks. If you doubt that, just consider the three 35-second violations that incorrectly went against the Salukis. The selection committee set up the brackets so no mid major would advance deep in the tournament, so I'm positive they told the referees to favor Kansas last night. Look for more flawed officiating tonight in the Florida-Butler and Oregon-UNLV contests.

Prediction: Hornets -2.
Best Bet.
Incorrect; -$110




Minnesota Timberwolves (29-38) at Seattle Sonics (26-41).
Line: Sonics by 2. Total: 194.


Another gripe with the officiating: Why are these morons calling fouls with less than five seconds in regulation? Let the players play! This happened in the Memphis-Texas A&M and Tennessee-Ohio State games. If the NCAA weren't corrput, I'd advise them to get more competent referees.

Prediction: Sonics -2.
Under 194.

Utah Jazz (44-23) at Los Angeles Clippers (32-36).
Total: 191.


Oh, and by the way, what was up with that 2-second adjustment in the Texas A&M-Memphis game? How did the clock go from 3.1 to 2.0? Seriously, how crooked can these officials be? As I said before, it'd be more honorable if they just admitted they favored one team over the other.

Prediction: Under 191.
Correct; +$100




Washington Wizards (37-29) at Golden State Warriors (32-37).
Line: Warriors by 5.


Last night's crooked act by the NCAA made me realize that a college football tournament would be useless. The NCAA would just pick one team it wanted to win and have the refs give it all the calls. Can you imagine pass-interference penalties on hail maries, and mysterious seconds added onto the clock for someone like Lloyd Carr? Oh, wait a second. That already happens.

Prediction: Warriors -5.
Correct; +$100



Thursday, March 22, 2007 (1-1, -$10)



Detroit Pistons (43-23) at Houston Rockets (43-25).
Line: Rockets by 3. Total: 182.


None of those ridiculous spreads covered. Boston blew a 15-point lead to the Bobcats. Mayhem. The system is now 101-75-2 and 84-67-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Rockets -3.
Over 182. - Best Bet.

Orlando Magic (31-37) at Toronto Raptors (36-31).
Total: 195.


After gloating about the system being 7-2 the past four nights, it went 0-2 yesterday. The system is now 99-71-2 and 82-63-2 documented on this site.

Prediction: Under 195.
Correct; +$100




Charlotte Bobcats (25-43) at Boston Celtics (20-47).
Line: Celtics by 7.


The fact that the system likes this pick made me yell "what!?" loudly throughout the house. Now my sister thinks I'm insane. Thanks a lot, system.

Prediction: Celtics -7.
Incorrect; -$110




Los Angeles Clippers (31-36) at Milwaukee Bucks (25-41).
Line: Bucks by 6. Total: 196.


Ugh, the system likes the Celtics -7 and Bucks -6? It must be broken or something.

Prediction: Bucks -6.

Washington Wizards (36-29) at Seattle Sonics (26-40).

Ugh. Celtics -7, Bucks -6 and Sonics -3? Should I hang myself now or wait until all three lose tonight?

Prediction: Sonics -3.
Incorrect; -$110




Minnesota Timberwolves (28-38) at Sacramento Kings (29-38).
Total: 198.


No, the system's not taking the Kings -27. Thank God.

Denver Nuggets (33-31) at New Jersey Nets (31-36).

Indiana Pacers (30-35) at Houston Rockets (42-25).
Total: 192.


The following contains 24 spoilers, so if you're catching up, skip this paragraph. I can't believe they killed off Audrey. So, in the past few years, Jack has lost his wife, daughter (emotionally), best friends (David Palmer, Tony, Michelle), brother, co-workers (too many to list) and lover. I think the writers just set up the movie they're planning next summer. I'm confident it's going to feature Jack going to China and killing everyone responsible for Audrey's death. Write that down.

Prediction: Over 192.

Utah Jazz (43-22) at Cleveland Cavaliers (40-25).
Line: Cavaliers by 5. Total: 192.


It's only March, but I'm giving out my Idiot of the Year Award to John Street, mayor of Philadelphia. If dragging the public-school system down the drain wasn't enough, Street didn't have the foresight to pay the plowmen to take care of the streets during a major snow storm. So, despite inches of snow and ice, the roads weren't clean, and consequently there were dozens of accidents all over the city. Why hasn't this idiot been impeached yet? He needs to stick his head out of his rear end and start doing something positive for this town.

Prediction: Cavaliers -5.

Oh, and by the way, John Street is the source behind all crime, the inflation of gas prices, bad haircuts (check out his picture at Google images), racism, feminism, fascism, sexism, adultery, genocide, 9/11, AIDS and death. John Street also hates St. Patrick's Day. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Utah Jazz (43-21) at Philadelphia 76ers (25-40).
Total: 191.


Good job, Sixers. You managed to take yourself out of contention for the No. 1 pick for a late and worthless push into the playoffs. Then you lost to Atlanta to foul that up. Ugh. This organization is completely clueless.

Prediction: Under 191.
Best Bet.
Correct; +$100




Houston Rockets (40-25) at Toronto Raptors (36-29).

So, I was wrong about Lost. Desmond isn't Claire's baby from the future. Watching that Russian pirate die in the sonic pulse was pretty cool though.

My dentist took x-rays of my teeth yesterday. After getting the results, she looked at the pictures with a defeated look. Her assistant cried, "Oh no." My dentist looked at me and said, "I didn't even count the amount of cavities you have; you have so many." She proceeded to count out loud, "One... two... there's a pair on this tooth... four... five... and that's just on the left side." I came up with nine cavities. Frankly, I have no idea how I do it. I'm like some cavity-growing super hero. Damn it, why couldn't I get the power to bend space and time instead?

Atlanta Hawks (26-39) at Boston Celtics (18-45).
Line: Celtics by 4. Total: 190.


I have a dentist appointment today and I have a feeling that the woman is going to find at least eight cavities in my mouth. I'm not joking. About five years ago, I went to the dentist, who found 17 cavities. Seventeen! It took three trips just to get them all fixed.

Indiana Pacers (29-33) at Minnesota Timberwolves (27-35).
Line: Timberwolves by 5.


So, Lost says it will reveal a link between two of the stranded people on the beach on Wednesday, and it looked like that's going to involve Desmond and Claire. Here's my theory: Desmond is Claire's baby from the future. That's how he can predict the future -- because he lived through it. What, you don't like my theory? Why not?

You know those breakfast commercials that have a bowl of cereal, a glass or orange juice and toast, showing you what a healthy breakfast is? Well, I think those people would have a stroke if they saw what I was eating right now. Swedish Fish. Chocolate-chip cookies. Pepsi. Good times.

Washington Wizards (34-26) at Miami Heat (32-29).
Line: Heat by 4.


Did anyone see the ending of the Akron-Miami of Ohio game yesterday? The officials and scorekeeper should be fired. How do you screw the end of a championship game that badly? In case you missed it, Akron missed a free throw with 6.6 seconds remaining. The clock started a second or two after it was supposed to. Miami of Ohio drilled downcourt and launched a three with 1.4 seconds left. The ball went through the net as time expired. If the clock would have started right away, the Redhawks may not have been able to get that shot off. And even if they did, the player would have shot differently. So, the Zips' season is shot because some idiot wasn't able to push a button right away. Ridiculous.

Prediction: Heat -4.

Golden State Warriors (29-35) at Portland Blazers (25-36).

I discovered one of the funniest shows of all time on Thursday. After watching South Park at midnight, I kept the TV on for some show called the Sarah Silverman Program. It was hilarious -- it's something you have to see. Hiro from Heroes was a guest star, if that'll convince you. I think they're running a marathon on Comedy Central Sunday at 9 p.m. Check it out.

I think my MySpace account has a virus. There's some guy named Jason who keeps leaving comments on my board that don't say anything. I can't block him because it says his profile no longer exists, yet he keeps posting on my board. Meanwhile, MySpace hookers keep adding me as their friend. Sure, they look good, but if I become friends with them I'll catch some STDs. I mean, my computer will catch some STDs. Why won't these people just leave me alone?

How good am I? Yesterday, I wrote, "Based on what happened this past weekend, I'm expecting the Kings to blow a 104-39 lead in the fourth quarter." It wasn't that large, but Sacramento managed to surrender a 17-point lead in the third. Fantastic. That's six bad breaks I've gotten since Saturday night.

Seattle Sonics (25-35) at Philadelphia 76ers (22-38).
Line: 76ers by 3. Total: 192.


I'm not sure about this, but I think the 76ers have the sixth-worst record in the NBA now. Whoop dee doo. Thanks a lot, you losers. I was hoping for Greg Oden or Kevin Durant. Now, they'll have to settle for Joakim Noah, who will set this franchise back another 30 years.

Los Angeles Lakers (33-28) at Milwaukee Bucks (22-39).
Line: Bucks by 4.


Speaking of the 76ers, there's a magazine that has dubbed Billy King as the third-best general manager in sports. Does King manage a professional bowling team that no one has ever heard of? They're not referring to the work he does with the Sixers, are they? If dishing out billions of dollars to no-talents and lethargic bums is great managing, Isiah Thomas must be No. 1.

Prediction: Bucks -4.
Correct; +$100




Indiana Pacers (29-30) at Utah Jazz (41-19).
Total: 198.


And speaking of Isiah Thomas, it's an absolute joke that the Knicks are competing for a playoff spot. Please, David Stern, for the love of God, just give the No. 1 seed in the East a bye. I don't want to see the Knicks, Nets or Magic in the postseason.

Milwaukee Bucks (22-38) at Orlando Magic (28-33).
Total: 200.


I don't think any handicapper or bettor in the history of sports was screwed as much in one day as I was on Sunday. The Celtics-Wolves was set to go Under until Doc Rivers failed to instruct his players to foul Minnesota up 3 with five seconds left. The game went into overtime and the Under was shot. Then there was the Don Nelson technical foul with .1 seconds remaining in the Wizards-Warriors contest, which prevented the contest from going into overtime, as Gilbert Arenas easily sunk the extra free throw.

Next, Milwaukee blew a 100-84 lead in the fourth quarter to lose to Chicago. And if that wasn't enough, the Jazz and Hornets combined for 64 points in a bizarre third quarter where both teams combined to shoot around 80 percent from the field. That contest was set to go Under until every single player on the court magically became Reggie Miller in the clutch. This all happened one day after Atlanta blew a 16-point advantage in the third quarter.

I'll be talking about some of these things in more detail further down. The system is now 75-53-1 and 58-45-1 documented on this site.

Prediction: Under 200.
Correct; +$100




Houston Rockets (36-23) at Cleveland Cavaliers (34-25).
Line: Cavaliers by 3. Total: 181.


Doc Rivers is the worst coach in NBA history. It's a joke that he's even allowed near a bench. Forget the fact that he chose not to foul Minnesota while up 3 with 4.5 seconds left. He was faced with the same decision in overtime and let the Timberwolves shoot another 3-pointer, which forced the game into a second overtime. Even though I had already lost the total, I was still furious. If I were the owner of the Celtics, I would have fired him right on the spot, and let one of the assistants coach the second overtime. But then I realized that Rivers is great at losing games, so I'd probably ride him all the way to the No. 1 pick in the draft.

Prediction: Cavaliers -3.

Charlotte Bobcats (22-38) at Utah Jazz (40-19).
Total: 204.


Handing out technical fouls is part of a referee's job. Handing out a technical foul with .1 seconds remaining in a tie game is one of the most crooked things in the history of sports. Why didn't the ref just announce that he either had the Warriors or the Under, and just leave it at that? That's way more honorable than giving out a technical for no apparent reason. When asked if he was worried about the betting aspect of NBA games during the All-Star Break, David Stern was taken aback that a reporter would pose such a question. Well, Dave, looks like you've got a little problem on your hands.

Sunday, March 4, 2007 (1-5, -$450)



Minnesota Timberwolves (26-32) at Boston Celtics (16-42).
Total: 192.


Ugh. Atlanta had a 16-point lead in the third and blew it. The Spurs and Rockets combined for just 31 points in their fourth quarter, causing me to miss out on the Over by seven points. Instead of a possible 4-1 night, the system was 2-3. The system is now 74-48-1 and 57-40-1 documented on this site.

Prediction: Under 192.

Golden State Warriors (26-34) at Washington Wizards (32-25).
Total: 217.


I'm an idiot. I was ready to apologize for a 1-3 record because I completely forgot I had the Clippers Under last night. So, instead I'd like to apologize for a 2-3 record.

Prediction: Over 217.
Incorrect; -$110




Chicago Bulls (34-27) at Milwaukee Bucks (22-37).
Line: Bucks by 1.


As I'm looking out my window, there are three weird-looking guys wearing red pants walking around with stacks of papers in each hand. Meanwhile, the same green car keeps driving by. Is something serious about to go down?

Prediction: Bucks -1.

Los Angeles Lakers (33-26) at Phoenix Suns (45-14).
Total: 218.


There will be no analysis or lame comment here because I'm putting on my bullet-proof vest as I'm typing this.

Prediction: Over 218.

New Jersey Nets (28-31) at Philadelphia 76ers (21-38).
Line: 76ers by 2.


The Sixers have an opportunity to get really good. If they would purposely lose their games, they'd wind up with Kevin Durant or Greg Oden. They also have Denver's selection, so they'd likely get a point guard like Acie Law as well. But noooo... the Sixers just won't lose.

Prediction: 76ers -2.
Correct; +$100




Utah Jazz (39-19) at New Orleans Hornets (28-31).
Total: 197.


I have nothing else to say right now, so let me just note that I've eaten Swedish Fish for breakfast the past two days. Just thought you'd enjoy that glimpse into my life.

Prediction: Under 197.

Saturday, March 3, 2007 (2-3, -$130)



San Antonio Spurs (40-18) at Houston Rockets (36-22).
Total: 178.


The system would have went 3-1 last night if the Pacers could, you know, actually score in the fourth quarter. Instead, it was just 2-2. The system is now 72-45-1 and 55-37-1 documented on this site.

Prediction: Over 178.
Incorrect; -$110




New York Knicks (27-33) at Atlanta Hawks (22-37).
Line: Hawks by 5.


I can't believe I'm laying five points with the Hawks. This system's going to give me a stroke.

Prediction: Hawks -5.
Best Bet.

Sacramento Kings (26-32) at Portland Blazers (25-34).
Line: Blazers by 2.


In case you're wondering, I survived the William Shatner-game-show torture chamber. Instead of watching the show and becoming a vegeatable, I decided to hit myself over the head with a two by four. It feels good to be alive.

Prediction: Blazers -2.
Incorrect; -$110




Indiana Pacers (29-28) at Los Angeles Clippers (28-30).
Line: Clippers by 2. Total: 186.


I saw Zodiac last night. Don't see it unless you're into: 1) Long movies with no action. 2) Puzzles (this film will make your brain hurt just trying to follow everything). 3) Empty theatres (there were like 20 people in the crowd). 4) Minkis! That's right -- Minkis from Boy Meets World is one of the Zodiac's victims! How cool is that?

Houston Rockets (35-22) at Denver Nuggets (28-28).

So, Model No. 4 from Deal or No Deal never called me or showed up to my house. You know what that means... William Shatner game show DVD time! Nooo... Nooo.. Nooooooooo!!!!

No, not Shatner's robotic speech patterns! Not the stupid questions! Not the 10f32442d924 pauses he takes every sentence! Not the STD-laden models! Not the studio audience that is clapping quickly so they can get out of there faster! Not the ugly toupee! Not the flamboyent shiny vests Shatner wears! Ahhhhhh!!!

If I can go 3-2 every night for the next 10 years, I'll take it. The system is now 69-41-1 and 52-33-1 documented on this site.

Los Angeles Clippers (28-29) at Seattle Sonics (22-35).
Line: Sonics by 5. Total: 198.


So, no word yet from Model No. 4. I almost went into depression but then I realized she worked yesterday. I can respect that. I'll wait another day before I end things by watching William Shatner's defunct game show.

Prediction: Sonics -5
