NBA Playoffs 2022 Primer

NBA Playoffs 2022 Primer

After an 82 game season that felt like two, the NBA Playoffs are finally here. The Lakers are out and upstarts like the Grizzlies are in. The 7-8-9-10 Play-In format worked as planned, leading to more meaningful games all the way to the end of the season. The Phoenix Suns finished with the league’s best record this year at 64-18 and have the lowest odds to win the championship at around +250. The defending champion, the Milwaukee Bucks, a 3 seed this year sit at +400. The Miami Heat are the number 1 seed in the East. The hottest team in the NBA might be the number 4 seed, the Dallas Mavericks. It honestly feels like as many as six to seven teams could hold up the Larry O’Brien trophy in June. NBA Playoffs: Defense for the Win Looking for a key factor when picking your future champ, well its cliché, but defense wins championships. Phrases only become cliches if they are true and this certainly holds true in the NBA. Fifteen of the last twenty-one NBA Finals have featured a match up of...

NCAAB March Madness 2022 Primer

NCAAB March Madness 2022 Primer

The volume of wagering during March Madness supersedes any other sports betting event.  There are a lot of narratives this year, but just because a team has a good story doesn’t mean they are a good bet.  Yes, its Coach K’s last year, but does that mean Duke is destined to make a deep run?  Or will they fold under that added pressure? Gonzaga was ranked #1 to start and to end the season – will they be able to complete the unfinished business of two recent Championship Game losses?  With no truly dominant team out there, there are literally a dozen teams that I could see cutting down the nets. Betting The Underdogs There will be plenty of opportunities for positive expectancy wagers, so don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Historically, I have done extremely well in the first two rounds of the dance.  I particularly like placing first half wagers on underdogs, for three reasons: 1)   The first half is more of a pure number, because there aren’t garbage end of game fouls being...

NFL Super Bowl Prop Bets

NFL Super Bowl Prop Bets

America’s favorite holiday is finally upon us this Sunday, but why just celebrate one day…It’s SUPER BOWL WEEK as the Rams and the Bengals get set to clash in Los Angeles!  Even though it’s just one 60 minute game, the Super Bowl is a gambler’s paradise, with hundreds of betting options.  It is easy to get overwhelmed with so many plays on the board so make sure you manage your bankroll and have fun with it.  The last thing you want to do is lose all the profit you won on the NFL during the year. I occasionally bet the game, but Super Bowl props are really our bread and butter.  From betting heads or tails on the coin toss, to the length of the National Anthem, to the halftime act’s opening song – it doesn’t matter.  If there is an edge to be had, we are taking advantage of it.  I may not be able to tell you the winning teams from every Super Bowl in the past, but I will never forget some of the most wild proposition bets - especially the ones that have nothing to do with the game...

NCAAF College Football Bowl Sports Betting Tips 2021

NCAAF College Football Bowl Sports Betting Tips 2021

Happy Holidays KrackWins Nation!  We made our way through the grind of a long college football regular season and that can only mean one thing…Bowl Season is here! With the college football playoff system likely expanding to 8 teams next year, and possibly 16 in the years that follow, this year could be one of our last opportunities to bet a full slate of obscure bowl games.  Bowls like the Weed-Wacker Bowl, the Beef O’ Brady Bowl, and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl could eventually become the stuff of memories.  These games may mean little to those outside of the two fan bases and the Bowl sponsors – but in the world of sports betting, they are towering in importance. Nothing gives us the most famous bad beats, last second covers, and meltdowns like those December bowl games that have nothing to do with the Championship. Everyone remembers the 2012 Belk Bowl where +10.5 underdog Duke had the ball 1st and Goal in a tie 34-34 game with 1 minute left and somehow lost by 14.  Or how about...

Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap 7.14.22

Post 4th of July and Pre Labor Day is really the heart of the Summer.  Families take their vacations, the temperature rises, and the sports world becomes a bit quirky.  Baseball takes it only break of the year for the All Star festivities – this year at Dodger Stadium in LA.  Should be electric.  The biggest events in sports aren’t even in this country as Wimbledon and the British Open take place across the pond.  All 30 NBA Teams are in Las Vegas for the increasingly popular Summer League.  And all the while…in the distance, everyone is waiting for the behemoth of NFL Football as training camps are right around the corner.

Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap 6.29.22

Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap 6.29.22

Anyone who tells you they have the sports betting game figured out, don’t buy it for a second. I have been doing this professionally for nearly three decades and I continue to learn every day. One of the most important lessons I have learned is that no matter how skilled you become as a handicapper, you will always have good and bad runs. The key is to put yourself in the best position possible before the game/event starts and then let the chips fall where they may. Last week heading into the NBA Draft was a perfect example of that methodology.
