Dave’s Free Play, Friday 10/31/14

I'm not real big on gimmicks. That's pretty much right down the line, whether it's sports or basically anything else. I'm not knocking anyone who likes them, they're just not for me. So you'll understand why I'm so against the MLB All-Star game deciding which league hosts the World Series. I know I'm in the minority on this one, but I've detested the ... More

Congratulations to the Giants on their third World Series championship in only five years. That's a remarkable achievement, and while the players have to get the job done, the work of Brian Sabean and Bruce Bochy certainly can't be overstated. As for Madison Bumgarner, Pablo Sandoval, Hunter Pence et al, nothing short of tremendous. No hot dogging, ... More

I get asked frequently about sources I rely on myself for information in the various sports. It's  a difficult question to answer, as it's easily triple digits. But I have a couple that I believe should be on everyone's list as far as a couple of sports are concerned. Neither of these is really geared toward gamblers, though the data one of them is of ...

Another college conference preview today, with the spotlight on the Big West this time. If I were to rank my top conferences to wager on, the Big West would annually rank right near the top. I've got good info pipelines throughout the league, and whether or not it's a marquee conference matters nothing to me. The money spends the same regardless. 1. UC ... More

I'm skipping the usual rundown of selected Saturday college games. A variety of reasons in play here, but the main one is that I'm pretty much on fumes at this point. This is my busiest time of the entire calendar year. Full college and NFL boards, NHL, the World Series, NBA just a few days away and college baskets right around the bend. That translates ... More

Here are the quick takes from the Friday quartet of college games: Cincinnati did pretty much whatever it wanted in a romp over South Florida. The Bearcats lost starting QB Gunner Kiel to injured ribs in the first half, but they didn't miss a beat with Munchie Legaux under center in the second half. The stats were totally lopsided with Cincinnati ... More

Quick takes on the week's three completed college games: UL Lafayette built a big early lead and then held off a late charge by Arkansas State that made it a little interesting. The Ragin' Cajuns struggled in non-league play, but this very experienced entry has found its legs the last few weeks. Some peculiar early decision making by first year Arkansas ... More

Another college hoop conference preview on tap today, with the West Coast Conference in the spotlight this time. It's a conference with what amounts to one cinch NCAA team and a couple others who figure as bubble candidates. Not many surprises in this outfit the way I see it. 1. Gonzaga... About the only issue for this team as far as conference play is ... More

Here's this week's Wise Guy Wednesday report for college football. Note that these are not my plays, just information gathered from various sources. Some of those are in Nevada, as well as in various locales both stateside and offshore. 107 Miami Florida got pounded on Monday as the 'Canes moved from dog to chalk. Substantial buy back is not anticipate... More

I'm going to be dropping in some college basketball conference previews over the next few weeks, as the start of the season is remarkably just around the corner. I ran through my MWC picks a few days back, today it's a rundown on the PAC-12. 1. Arizona... Losing players like Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson might normally be considered a huge blow, but not ...

Only two games on tap tonight, one in the NFL and one on the ice. I'm not going to be involved with either one, so it's the ultimate rarity here...a day off. The just completed week was ridiculously good. 23-6, +16.75 overall. Both the weekly and monthly packages include all my plays across the board, sent out via email as I play them myself. There's a ... More
