Martin Luther Day play...

Cleveland Cavaliers -3, laying $220 to win $200 -- Not much time, but we have a double-revenge game here for the Cavs and the Warriors are finally hitting a spell where the losses are coming, which was inevitable...National TV game and I expect LeBron to raise his game to his highest level on this stage and I expect the entire Cavs team to do so, also, and with Irving starting to get back into form, well, I like the Cavs a lot tonight as this clearly is a Statement Game for them...

Thanksgiving Day selection...

NFL: 1-0, +$312
NHL: 0-1, -$50
NBA: 6-6, +$51
ALL: 7-7, +$313

The Twitter jinx continues for as I am 0-3 posting plays there and with the exception of one brief hot streak a couple years ago, Twitter has not been friendly to me...May not post there the rest of this season...

Short on time...Happy Thanksgiving...

Dallas Cowboys Pick, laying $165 to win $150 -- I feel like Vegas is giving me a fee winner here...Dallas at a Pick against the 10-0 Panthers...Public all over Carolina but virtually no line movement...Taking the Cowboys for 1.5 units...

New coach angle in play tonight...

NFL: 1-0, +$312
NHL: 0-1, -$50
NBA: 6-5, +$216
ALL: 7-6, +$478


My 6-1 stretch crashed and burned with that 0-2 last time out...

Houston Rockets -6.5, laying $165 to win $150 -- 
 To the surprise of nobody who follows my blog or has followed me for years, I am taking one of the strongest angles I have seen over the last 3 or 4 seasons in the NBA and NFL, and it is well documented here on my Blog...The trend is roughly 17-2 during this stretch if you include motivational games from the NFL in the mix were players died the week of the game and other examples in the NFL I gave in this post I made on my blog here:

http://sportsgambling777.blogspot.com/2014/02/new-coach-angle-in-play-tonight.html

Now rare to see a team as a Favorite falling into this angle...Usually bad teams fire their coaches midseason and the team is always a DOG who then wins outright in this spot... In fact, 1 of the 2 losses in the last 4 seasons was that game I cited in that link on my blog on 2/10/14 when I mentioned:

"The other Not Cover was also another unique situation where Mike Brown of the Lakers was fired 2 Novembers ago after the Lakers started 1-4, but new Coach Mike D'Antoni was recovering from knee surgery and couldn't take the sidelines until 4 games later and the Lakers DID WIN that game for D'Antoni at Home, but they they didn't cover the 6.5 point spread as they won by 5"...

So one of the 2 losses was a team that was at home favored by 6.5 points, like tonight...But that 1-4 Lakers team wasn't very good and this Houston team has a LOT of talent...

I want to bet 3 units on this game, my max play, but I am just slightly afraid of Houston not covering although my gut tells me they will whip Portland by 20+ tonight as HOU has lost 4 games in a row and had a player's only meeting after their last loss and then McHale gets fired the next day...They should be highly motivated tonight, and I always look for these motivational, or situational spots when betting sports...

Wednesday thoughts...

Running late as I barely got to the betting window in time tonight, but there are 6 plays that stand out tonight, as Chart-plays anyway:

Philly +9.5
LAL +8
Philly Over 196
NY Over 201
Port Over 206
NO +12.5

I won't bet the 3 sides because it's hard for me to take 1-6 and 0-7 teams these days, even though I am a DOG player in the NBA...

I am taking Philly Over and NY over, but am debating whether to take the PORT over...Almost all these plays are Chart plays...

NO also a strong chart play, but again, a 1-6 team with Davis OUT tonight...

Let's see if I regret not betting these 3 sides...

Because I am super-late posting today, none of these will count on my record...

Oklahoma City  / Washington over 217

I have given my reasons for taking Wizards' Overs all season and will keep taking them (depending on their opponent) until Vegas gets these totals close to where they should be...And Vegas is getting close here...Still taking it Over...

Saturday NBA plays...

NFL: 1-0, +$312
NHL: 0-1, -$50
NBA: 4-2, +$345
ALL: 5-3, +$607


Washington / Atlanta over 206.5, laying $110 to win $100 -I have given my reasons for taking Wizards' Overs all season and will keep taking them (depending on their opponent) until vegas gets these totals close to where they should be...And Vegas is getting closer every game, but they are not there yet, IMO...Wizards 2nd in the league in PACE...Atlanta a small chart-play to the Over...

Washington Wizards +5, , laying $99 to win $90 -- 
Washington Wizards Pick, , laying $10 to win $18 -I like this one, too...Have to take it...The usually strong angle where you take a team playing the team that eliminated them from the playoffs the previous season in the first game they meet in the new season is in play here again...That revenge angle started 0-4 this season until the least likely team covered and covered easily when PORT demolished Memphis 2 days ago, so the angle is a disappointing 1-4 this season...However, the Wizards just got stomped last night at Boston and the Hawks are off a fairly hard-fought win over the Pelicans, so I always like that matchup when 2 good teams are playing each other (team getting points off a blowout loss playing a team favored after a tough road win), so we have multiple strong situational spots working for the Wizards as this may be a good spot for Atlanta's 6-game winning streak to end...
