Dave’s Free Play, Saturday 1/19/13

The NHL is back in action, and while that will mean nothing to most sports fans (and I sure can't blame them) it's a good opportunity to pad the bankroll, as hockey remains a very beatable game. My NHL plays are almost exclusively money line with the majority being underdogs. Find the value, get the money. And yes, I'm in action right out of the gate, ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Friday 1/18/13

Not a whole lot to choose from on the Friday night college slate. Since I don't really follow Stony Brook or Vermont to any extent, that leaves me just one game, the MAAC duel between Fairfield and Iona. Let's break it down and see how it goes! 01/18 06:00 PM CB (819) FAIRFIELD VS (820) Take: (819) FAIRFIELD It's the ultimate contrast in styles when ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Thursday 1/17/13

Thursdays are generally good for me, as the schedule offers a wide array of games from the non-marquee conferences, and that's where I often produce my best results. Hopefully, that continues tonight as I will likely be on a good batch of plays. Here's the free look for Thursday, and it's actually on a team I will generally fade when I have the chance. 0... More

Dave’s Free Play, Wednesday 1/16/13

The usual huge Wednesday college hoop card awaits, and while I doubt I'll have a financial stake in the outcome, I can't wait for the big MWC showdown between UNLV and San Diego State. Physically, it's a good matchup for the Runnin' Rebels, and these two teams usually go right to the wire. But it's so tough to trust UNLV on the road. So strictly a fan on ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Tuesday 1/15/13

Clean slate on Monday, albeit on a short card. More of the same on Tuesday, as there's (right now) just one college game I really like. I didn't find anything of value elsewhere on the college slate, but there's an NBA hookup that interests me, so I'll tab that as the free opinion. NBA (511) MILWAUKEE BUCKS VS (512) LOS ANGELES LAKERS Take: (511) ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Monday 1/14/13

Short slate on Monday in the colleges. There's really just one game that stands out to me, and obviously that's reserved for my clients. The Big Monday doubleheader should be fun to watch, however, and I've at least got a lean in the leadoff clash between Louisville and Connecticut, so that's the free play for the day. By the way, if you'd like info on how ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Sunday 1/13/13

Okay results for me on Saturday, and it was nice to get the free play back on track after a few tough beats. Today's free opinion is on what is clearly the marquee tilt on the college slate. I can almost guarantee this will be the "sharp" side, which actually doesn't thrill me. I'm more at my best focusing on the games most bettors don't care about. ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Saturday 1/12/13

Loaded card today, and some outstanding situational spots to hopefully take advantage of along the way! Here's one such scenario in the Big West, and I'll make this my free opinion for Saturday. (681) CAL SANTA BARBARA VS (682) UC DAVIS Take: (681) CAL SANTA BARBARA Reason: Tough times for the Gauchos so far this season, and I really don't think ... More

Dave’s Free Opinion, Friday 1/11/13

Free plays in 2012 were ridiculously successful. Well over 60% for the entire year. Not so hot out of the 2013 gate. Hopefully, better results coming, starting tonight! My top Thursday play was San Diego getting points at San Francisco in a WCC hookup. Looked like a nasty rerun of Wednesday's William & Mary disaster, as the Toreros squandered a big ... More

Dave’s Free Opinion, Thursday 1/10/13

Not the best of results for me on Wednesday, mostly due to an incredible bad beat on William & Mary. The Tribe, five point dogs at Towson, appeared to have this game just about locked up. Leading by a healthy nine points with only two minutes to play, my side managed to turn it over five times in those last 120 seconds. And rather than just lose ... More

Dave’s Free Opinion, Wednesday 1/9/13

(797) MISSISSIPPI VS (798) TENNESSEE Take: (798) TENNESSEE Reason: I'm not sold on Cuonzo Martin as a head coach at this level. I'm not impressed with the hoop IQ of this Tennessee team. My pre-season opinion that the Volunteers were overrated and nothing more than a middle of the pack SEC team looks accurate, especially with Jeronne Maymon now apparently ... More

Dave’s Free Opinion, Tuesday 1/8/13

The college football season is now complete, and while I wish it could have concluded differently, I did not have a good showing in the bowls and finished up on a sour note with a bad call on Notre Dame. The good news is that the NFL continues to be very strong, and I won both personal plays this weekend with the Ravens and Seahawks. As for hoops, the NBA ... More
