27 Results for month: 07/2013

Dave’s Free Play, Wednesday 7/31/13

Time to say so long to July, and I'll be sad it see it go. This was a very strong month for me in baseball,  and things have gone especially well since the All-Star break. Here's hoping the good results are maintained through August, especially with football now in the mix. Early signup rates for football are still available, as is a baseball special ... More

I'm not sure whether I was lucky or not in winning my Monday play on the Rays. This game was pretty much dominated by David Price for seven innings, but it was still only a 2-1 contest as Tampa Bay failed to cash in on a seemingly endless number of chances to blow the game open. Things started to go wrong in the eighth inning as the Boston skies opened ... More

Split a pair on Sunday, winning with the Red Sox and then watched as the Angels put on quite the amateur show in the outfield en route to blowing a 5-0 lead and losing to Oakland. So a dead even result for me on Sunday, which is fine. The net profits since the All-Star break are really encouraging, and I'm looking forward to adding on as the season  ... More

Another very good result on Saturday, as both the Padres and Indians provided an excellent return as underdogs. So, 2-0 and a very nice profit for the day. I'm not much for hype, as you've probably noticed if reading this page on a regular basis. So I'll just say I'm on my best roll of the season right now and will leave it at that. Today's card or one ... More

Another plus night on Friday, and while 2-1, +1.00 isn't going to change anyone's lifestyle, it's black ink. There's been a good deal of that lately, and I'm eager to finish out the month on a big winning note. On yesterday's The Las Vegas Sportsline, which airs weekdays from 2-3 Pacific on ESPN 1100/98.9FM here in Las Vegas, I got on Jeff Locke's case. ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Friday 7/26/13

Thursday started off the wrong way for me, but closed just right with late winners on the Angels and Reds. So while it was only a 2-2 split overall, it feels like a win as coming back from 0-2 always does. You'll generally hear more about situational analysis as it applies to football and basketball. But it certainly exists on the diamond as well, and I ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Thursday 7/25/13

Strong results again on Wednesday, with a net +2.25 for the day. There's a pretty decent roll taking place right now, and a big part of the explanation is that I'm getting some close games to finish my way. Getting on the right side of the coin flips is always good news, and that's what's currently happening. I'm fairly conservative in terms of volume, ... More

I got my biggest comeback win of the season on Tuesday night as the Dodgers rallied from what looked like it would probably be an insurmountable deficit to win against the Blue Jays. That made for a nice overall night, as what has been a very solid break out of the All-Star break gate continues. The task for the Dodgers was made more difficult that it ... More

One down, and a whole lot more to follow. Adios, Ryan Braun, who will not be seen wearing a big league uniform until next spring. Alex Rodriguez, whose quad muscle is probably about as pulled as mine, is negotiating his deal. More suspensions are sure to be coming in the not too distant future. Is it another black eye for baseball? Some will say yes, but ... More

Dave’s Free Play, Monday 7/22/13

Having been around sports betting for nearly my entire life, I've pretty much heard it all. The expression I think I've probably heard the most is the old "this is going to be an easy winner", a phrase that is generally uttered by someone on a very popular favorite in an NFL game. I really don't hear it as frequently in baseball. I've determined that the ... More

Sometimes you win one you shouldn't, then there are those you lose that should have gotten you paid. I had one each way on Saturday. The Indians probably should have defeated the Twins. Some shoddy defense, mainly a mind numbingly awful throw by 3B Lonnie Chisenhall, likely cost Cleveland the win. But on the flip side, I won a play on the Mariners that ... More

Only 15 days till the football season kicks off! The Dolphins and Cowboys get things rolling on August 4, and that's the start of a six-month stretch of what amounts to almost non-stop gridiron action. The onset of the exhibition games always brings up the argument over the merits of wagering on these meaningless games. Make no mistake, that's the ... More
