Thank god Cincy came through tonight. I was hit pretty hard this weekend due mainly to the fact that I didn’t trust Tucker Max’s judgement on a few plays and either didn’t play them at all (Arizona ML) or played them for less than he did (Miami ML). The result was that a lot of my money was on losing plays (holy shit, those 3.5 points that Atlanta laid against KC were off the mark). The winning plays that would have at least broke me even for the weekend were the ones I passed on. So when Tucker threw up his pick for tonight (Cincy +7 4 units) I just shrugged, bet with it, and left work to hit the gym with Judd.
Well, it was touch and go for awhile, but that win helps my bankroll to recover from the weekend. Shouts to Tucker and the rest of the message board. An unhealthy new obsession of mine is to read their thoughts on handicapping and betting. Of course, the amount of money I’m putting up is considerably less than they, me being a broke new homeowner and all. But having $10 on the game makes Buffalo v. Baltimore a little more exciting than it typically would be. I’m up approximately 6 units thus far, including bets on NFL, MLB, and NCAAF.
