The Holiday Grind: Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap and Look Ahead 12.22.22

Dec 22, 2022 | Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap, NBA, NCAAB, NCAAF, NFL, Sports Betting Tips

I grew up in a small town where everyone knew everyone else and no one ever left. You went to kindergarten and graduated high school with the same group of guys and girls. Everyone who was coupled up after high school got married and started a family right away. Personally, I moved away from my hometown long ago but would occasionally return for the holidays. I would run into my old friends who were now married to that girl down the street, raising a handful of kids. Now, don’t get me wrong…many of them were very happy, living in what I called a naive bliss. But it always got me thinking: were these two “meant to be” or did they end up choosing to get married because at the time felt like that was the next thing they needed to do?

I was reminded of this a few years ago when one of my oldest friends (and biggest degenerate) texted to wish me a merry Xmas. After exchanging pleasantries, it quickly became evident what the point of this call was: “so do you like anything in this Aloha Bowl?” I couldn’t help but laugh. He wanted to bet a no name bowl, with two mediocre teams – BYU vs. Hawaii, playing in Hawaii, with an anybody’s guess spread of 2.5. If this game was being played any other night of the season, it wouldn’t get a second look…but now, as the only game on the board, he wanted action and he wasn’t alone. The action on that game equaled the action of a regular season NFL game for one reason only: it was the only game available. 

Just like I wanted to tell the guys I grew up with, don’t make a decision based on the absence of other options. It may or may not come back to bite you, but it’s never an advantage play. So many people make silly, unnecessary bets over the holidays because of limited action. Not surprisingly, they dent the bankroll that they worked all year to build. If you’ve noticed, as the available games reduce, so do the Krackwins plays. We NEVER give out a play just so that our users have action. 

Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap

This past week Krackwins has another good week, finishing 20-14-1 for an 8.6 units. College hoops started the season well, as we finished the week 8-4 +6.8 units. The College Bowl season kicked off the right way, as we won our first 3 games. We finished the week 3-0-1 (+5.2 units) in College football, as we pushed our FCS game. NFL props had a rough weekend as we finished the NFL week 3-8 -6.5 units. Our NBA props continued its hot run and we finished the NBA week 6-2, +3.1 units.

Christmas week brings us the big bowls and a big week of the NFL. College basketball players come back from the break to start the conference season and the NBA moves towards its half way point. There will be loads of opportunities to start 2023 off in the black, as we lock up another very profitable year. Just stick to the plan, don’t chase holiday action, and get ready for an awesome New Year!

I want to wish each of you happy holidays and an excellent New Year. My new app is up now and I couldn’t be more happy. Thanks to the many of you that reached out with your holiday good wishes and feedback. Happy Holidays to all and see you in 2023!
