Build and Expand: Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap and Look Ahead 1.23.23

Jan 24, 2023 | NBA, NCAAB, NFL, Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap, Sports Betting Tips

The sports betting world had a lot of buzz going around last week. Sportsbooks across the country saw record handles for the NFL Playoffs this past weekend, as we now have 36 states offering some form of legal sports betting online or in person. Fans and bettors watched as the Bengals, 49ers, Chiefs, and Eagles each advanced to the Conference Championships.

The Bills, the odds on Super Bowl favorite throughout the season, were knocked off at home by Joe Burrow and the Bengals in a real life snow globe. Disaster struck the Chiefs when their irreplaceable QB went down with a high ankle injury. Do not fear Chief fans…enter backup QB and AARP member Chad Henne, who proceeded to orchestrate a 97 yard touchdown drive. Mahomes was able to heroically limp his way through the second half and the Chiefs put away the Jaguars 27-20 – the final Jags field goal swinging millions and millions worth of betting dollars. The Eagles looked every bit like the team they were the first 15 weeks of the season as they blew out the doors off the Giants from the opening kickoff. Finally, the 49ers took advantage of some really boneheaded throws from Dak Prescott, winning a defensive battle at home. All four remaining teams appear pretty equal, and the books agree – as all four are +250 to +300 to win the Super Bowl.

Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap

KrackWins Nation had a good weekend, going 15-9 (+6.1 units) on our NFL picks.  There will be a ton more proposition bet opportunities available this week as we continue to deliver high volume heading into our most robust day of the year, Super Bowl Sunday. NCAA basketball finds itself in the heart of conference play as KrackWins went 6-5 (+1 unit.)  Upsets were the theme of the weekend as #1 Houston, #2 Kansas, #5 UCLA and #6 Gonzaga all lost. This year’s race to cut down the nets is as wide open as I can remember, with no truly dominant team and at least a dozen teams that can win it all.  Finally, NBA closed the week 3-4 (-1.6 units.)  Overall, KrackWins went 24-18 (+5.5 units) for the week.

Only three football games remain before that painful six month break so let’s fully take advantage of each one.  Of course, NCAAB and NBA fill the boards each day.  I have said it many times before, but make sure you get familiar with each sportsbook that is available in your state.  Rules and betting options vary from state to state and even from book to book.  Have a great week and a let’s keep beating the book!

The Human Condition: Sports Betting Picks Weekly Recap and Look Ahead 1.19.23

You would not believe the number of bettors that would rather risk losing a bet made on their own opinion than win a bet, relying on someone else’s information. In fact, I have people close to me who have spent decades losing, seen my consistent success for year and years, and will still bet their opinion over mine.
