Dave’s Free Play, Thursday 2/28/13

I'll be getting started with baseball analysis tomorrow, with a little focus on fantasy baseball at the outset. The free plays will remain on the college hardwood for the entire month of March, with an occasional NBA or NHL opinion on nights where there aren't any college games. Hopefully, they will fare better than last night's Missouri State disaster. ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Wednesday 2/27/13

Tuesday night proved to be much more enjoyable as I got the 3-0 hoop sweep. One never knows for sure how it's going to turn out, but I really like tonight's slate. so hopefully another night with lots of black ink is pending. Don't forget, now is the time to get setup for baseball, which has always been my strongest game. Pre-season rates are in effect, so ... More

Bad beats are bad enough. Getting robbed is worse. Iowa State backers, not to mention the Cyclones themselves, got ripped off by the refs last night, plain and simple. The final 90 seconds of regulation would rank among the worst displays of officiating I've ever seen. Needless to say, I was on Iowa State. But even the most ardent Jayhawks fan probably ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Monday 2/25/13

There were two OT games on Sunday between college and pro hoops plus the NHL. Unfortunately for me, I got involved in both of them and lost each one. I don't feel too bad about missing with the Avalanche on the ice. The analysis was actually on target as the premise for taking the big dog was a potentially sluggish Anaheim team off a long break, plus the ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Sunday 2/24/13

Good day for me on Saturday with some healthy profits, paced by a big play on UNLV. There just isn't any substitute for good, verifiable information. When news broke that Leonard Washington was in street clothes for the game, Wyoming was basically dead in the water and the Runnin' Rebels were absolute top shelf material. Obviously, I was thrilled with the ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Saturday 2/23/13

Friday night was terrific, with a 3-0 sweep on my personal plays and a very easy winner with the free call on Princeton. Every day should be that solid! It is Bracketbuster Saturday, and as is always the case for me, a heavy slate of selections. Add in a few off the regular board and it's safe to say I'll be doing a load of scoreboard watching all day ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Friday 2/22/13

Split out a quartet of Thursday plays, 2-1 hoops, 0-1 on the ice as the new coach angle on the Sabres came up short. Time now to gear up for what should be a big weekend in college with a huge load of Bracket Buster games to try and decipher. I've done pretty well with this contrived gimmick over the years, and have confidence the results will be solid once ... More

Stop the presses! Not one, but a pair of OT winners on Wednesday as I got Kansas home in hoops and also nailed an extra time winner on the ice with the Avalanche. Given my usual record in overtime, I'm more than thrilled to nail a pair on the same night. We are one day closer to baseball. I'll even get to watch a little action on the diamond this weekend ...

As easy as it gets with the Tuesday free play as San Diego State manhandled a shorthanded Wyoming squad. I can guarantee that the Wednesday free play will not get there as easily, but it's nonetheless a spot I like and feel is worth a wager. Let's get right to it! ------------ 02/20 05:00 PM CB (763) TEXAS A&M VS (764) AUBURN Take: (764) AUBURN ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Tuesday 2/19/13

I split a pair of personal plays on Monday, losing a bizarre game with Pittsburgh in college basketball, but cashing a very nice puck line NHL ticket on the Phoenix Coyotes. Anytime I go 1-1 and turn a healthy profit, I'm sure not going to complain. Portland State came through in fine fashion with a relatively easy win over Eastern Washington as the free ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Monday 2/18/13

One of the monster bad beats of the season took place on Sunday evening as Illinois State managed to give up an 8-0 run to Wichita State in roughly the final 40 seconds. The sequence was as follows. Illinois State up five, missed Wichita State shot. Carmichael rebounds, and for reasons he probably doesn't even know himself, he decides to extend his right ... More
