Good Morning Sports Fans:
Before getting to Thursday's recap and Friday's plays, I would first like to say thanks to another well-established sports blog out there that was kind enough to give us a very positive review. A very special thank you to Paul Raymond of MySportsRumors.com for his excellent review. Paul wrote us a very detailed, 500-word write-up about The Visionary's Blog titled, "Sports Handicapping - Who does it right?" where he wrote many favorable things about The Visionary. Paul has an extremely successful and very entertaining sports blog, which means that he did not have to do this for us at all, but he did. We really appreciate the acknowledgement. This is exactly the type of stuff that makes blogging so popular over commercial and standard web sites. Thanks Paul. Class act. (Check Out Paul Raymond's Week 7 NFL Predictions)
Thursday wasn't a very big success as we did hit our big, 4-unit play in TCU which I absolutely pegged and couldn't have been anymore dead on. However, the rest of Thursday's card didn't do us any favors as we lost a total of 4.2 units on the Sox runline and the FSU/NCState total. But, we banked an overall profit of 0.8 units by hitting the over in the ALCS Game 5 matchup. (Note to readers; Please do not complain when we show a profit, even if it's a small profit. Small profits add up.) Lets move on...
I am getting pumped up for another big weekend as I see a plethora of games for Saturday and Sunday that are just begging me to bet them. I'm really hoping that we can hit that 150-unit mark by Monday, but I don't want to jinx it. Again, I will try to get the NCAA football picks for Saturday posted later this evening, but I am not going to promise anything.
As for Friday, I am not really excited about tonight's matchup. I will be playing 3 units on the total and 2 units on the side. 5-units may be a little more then I should be playing on this game. But, whatever...I have the bankroll. That's not all guys! We also have our first official (2-unit) NHL play of the 2008-09 season. Again note; the NHL picks will not be a daily thing here. I do occasionally like to take on the pucks and I have some systems and strategies for handicapping the NHL. But, if you are a player that only likes to bet the pucks, you won't get your daily fill here.
