50-Unit Triple Power Play Game Of Week Wins Tonight

By Kelso Sturgeon

I have spent so much time handicapping over the past two months I have neglected the one thing I love to do and that is to write articles and columns that teach others how to be better/sharper handicappers. That is what I will be doing over the rest of the basketball season.

It goes without saying I am very opinionated about how to successfully handicap and win money and make no apology for it. My closed mind offends many when I reject their advice - as their thoughts are to me are so far removed from what this game is all about - they belong in a book of fairy tales. Sorry but that is how I feel.

Don’t Hand James Harden The NBA MVP Just Yet


Read more
James Harden has pulled out to a decisive lead in the race to be NBA MVP, at least if we measure the race by the sentiments of the betting market. Harden is the (-110) favorite, having surpassed Russell Westbrook, who now sits at (+125). There may be money to made in this race for the NBA’s highest individual honor.

Make no mistake—if the season ends today, Harden is a slam-dunk choice for MVP. He’s averaging 29ppg. That’s impressive enough on its face, but it’s also expected from Harden. What hasn’t been expected is the improved rebounding he’s offered from the two-guard spot—his eight boards a game are a career-high.

And what really wasn’t expected was Harden’s newfound willingness to share the basketball. He now averages 11 assists per game, a huge increase over last year’s 7.5, which was in of itself a career high. The burden of being a ballhog, which has trailed Harden through his pro career, is something that lurks in the background of his MVP candidacy. At least for now, he’s embraced the idea of passing the ball as well as he shoots it.

These dazzling individual numbers come in conjunction with Houston’s 40-17 record. They sit in the 3-spot in the East and are virtually neck-and-neck with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third-best record in the league overall.
