12-5 In NCAA…27-6-1 In Conference Tournaments
And Thursday Going For 100-Unit Knockout
As many of you know I am been wiping out bookmakers from Maine to Spain the college tournaments—standing 12-7 in the NCAA after going 27-6-1 in the college conference tournaments. That means I am hitting 78% winners in the toughest arena in college basketball and I am going for the big bucks tonight with my annual 100-unit NCAA Tournament Game of the ear.
Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Keys to a Big Weekend
You probably saw the footage from Las Vegas this past weekend of bettors in sports books reacting in horror when Seton Hall nailed a three-pointer at the buzzer against Kansas to cover the spread by half a point. A seven-point loss turned to a four-point loss against a spread of 4.5. I was certainly among those angered by that shot. It kept me from going a perfect 6-0 in the Round of 32!
My selections last weekend were:
50 units on Loyola-Chicago (outright winner)
25 units on Gonzaga (winner)
25 units on Texas Tech (winner)
25 units on Syracuse (outright winner)
25 units on Maryland-Baltimore County (winner)
25 units on Kansas (loser by a half-point at the buzzer)
You can tell I had a mix of dogs and favorites (three of each). You can tell I was with the public on a few spots, against them on others. You can tell I wasn't focused on one individual conference (my six releases came from five different conferences, and I faded that conference with a different pick). It's true that I lined up against the SEC (fading Tennessee and Florida) and the Big 10 (fading Ohio State and Michigan State). But those choices were more about the teams involved rather than the conferences.
One the whole, a balanced portfolio that was potent in terms of win potential, while also providing protection against bad surprises. If a conference or a certain part of the country turned out to be very overrated, my slate was largely immune to that. Not too chalky, not too many dogs. A solid fort that could win the war by itself.
