The Gambler's Edge - April 17: Two Big Wins

Written by:
Published on:

We were living dangerously with our play on Cincinnati as a +140 underdog at some books.  The Reds didn't just win, they clobbered Milwaukee.

Current NBA Record: 7-1 (87.5%)

Current MLB Record: 6-4 (60%) 2-0 High Priced Picks

NBA Recap: We managed a win with the Heat after Miami gave us our first loss Saturday night.  The Heat ended up beating the 76ers outright in this one. 

MLB Recap: This play on Cincinnati really makes up for the two high priced plays we've offered up this season.  This win also helped boost our record though we'd love a healthier margin to be sure.

An Early Look at Public Favorites for Tuesday: Actually, Indiana was seeing the most volume but they don't play until Wednesday.  That line had the Pacers at +8 and seeing nearly 70% of the action.  This one was moving to +8.5 in an apparent effort to get more action on Indiana.  Is a blowout possible on Wednesday by Cleveland?  We shall see.
