I really enjoyed the night off and I will also admit that if I had played last night's NLCS game 5, I would have taken the over. So, the day off may have saved us two units. Thanks for the day off and to 'Stro' for his comments appreciating that I needed the day off (which I really did). Also, congrats to the Phillies and their fans. Philadelphia deserves a championship and it may just happen this year.
Anyway, I have a decent size card for Thursday night which should make things interesting. I am rather excited to watch this BYU/TCU game, not only because it's an intriguing match-up, but also because I think the oddsmakers got this one wrong. I also think the public perception of BYU is way off and they are low in my top 25. This also means a pretty decent size play on this one. So, Thursday's card is iced with a big play in tonight's college football action.
Oh yea, I thought I would mention this one more time for the NBA & NHL players that do not read the comments on a regular basis or just did not read the comments from Tuesday's post where I explained a little bit about my NHL & NBA handicapping styles. For those of you waiting for NBA picks, I do not play NBA preseason basketball as I do not think it's worth handicapping. I think the NBA preseason could be used to see how fresh some NBA players are that are facing earl injuries. And, for those of you waiting for NHL picks, I am not a regular daily player of NHL hockey. However, I will go through the NHL board and do some hockey handicapping every now and again. Regarding NHL picks, you can expect to see a few hockey plays per week (at the most), but not until the season is a few weeks deep and the quality power rating charts begin to fill up with data.
Ok then....How 'bout we get to Thursday's MLB and college football picks....
