Betting with Britt

People are asking how I’m doing this, after a 9-1 week for a 2 week total of 17-3. CONFIDENCE. Yes, I have bad weeks. Yes, I sometimes have a couple in a row. But I’m not scared to play what I like. I learned this while learning how to handicap horse racing. When I first started handicapping the ponies, I would see a horse I liked, but if he was long odds, like 15-1 or so, I’d say, “He can’t win, he’s long odds and nobody is betting him”, so I wouldn’t make the bet. They usually won. So what I learned over time was, I was just a better handicapper and knew more than 90% of the horse players cause I put time, effort, and do my homework on such things as breeding. Odds are based solely on what the public bets, and 75% of people are just playing the favorite, or the grey horse, or the one with the cool name. I play the horse that statistically has the best chance to win, REGARDLESS of odds, and I stick to my guns. I am confident in my handicapping ability and what I learned from my mentor who taught me so much about ponies. Same applies here, I study and study and study, make a semi-educated picked based on all info available to me, but most importantly, I STICK WITH MY SYSTEM. An Example was taking Texas last week +16 at USC. Everything and everybody said USC. I remained confident in myself, played the dog, and damned if they didn’t almost win outright. Win, lose, or draw. I’m CONFIDENT in myself. If you go into it thinking you’re going to lose, just turn around and walk away now. Now, to my picks:

1)  Duke vs. North Carolina. Rivalry game. Duke looks good, can run the ball and play solid D. Add that up and game goes UNDER 65.5

2) Michigan -10 vs. Purdue. This KILLS me to say it, but Purdue is much improved. Michigan hasn’t played a complete game yet. But today, that all turns around as Michigan outclasses (using a horse racing term) Purdue, pulls away late. MICHIGAN -10

3) Louisiana Tech vs South Carolina. If this total was 70 I’d still play the over, OVER 53

4) Florida -1.5 vs. Kentucky. One of several intriguing SEC games this week. Kentucky has played well so far, but Florida just has better athletes and, again, outclasses. FLORIDA -1.5

5) Arkansas vs. Texas A&M. Another intriguing SEC game, I’m labeling this the “hot seat bowl”. Sumlin has been on it for 2 years now, and after the UCLA debacle, a member of the board of regents wanted his head on a platter. Bielema left Wisconsin and hasn’t been able to turn around the Hogs yet. 7-6 will start getting old quick. But, he does have a smoking hot wife, which proves once again us fat guys can outkick our coverage and how important confidence is, as I have s hot wife myself. Anyways, this game goes OVER 55

6) Saints vs. Carolina. Saints have been BAD this year. However, the last 4 games have all been decided by 5 points or less, and the dog has covered all 4. Division games usually stay close. SAINTS +5

7) Atlanta vs Detroit. 2 dome teams love to get up and down the field. Game goes over by 3rd quarter. OVER 50.5

8) Seattle vs. Tenn. I hate Pete Carroll. I hate Michael Bennett. I hate Shawn Kemp. I hate rain. I hate grunge rock. I hate Starbucks (except for their hot caramel apple cider with no whipped cream) Only good thing to EVER happen to Seattle was the best baseball player to ever live played their, Ken Griffey, Jr. OH, and I’m still on the Titans band wagon. TENN -3

9) KC vs. Chargers. Another division rivalry game and the Chargers (who should still be in San DIego) have lost both games this year by 5 points. CHARGERS +3

10) Houston vs. Pats. As I said last week, I hate laying this many points, but will Houston even score? And the Pats proved last week they have a chip on their shoulder. Pats win 99-0. PATS -13.5

*Season (17-3)
