2016-17 NBA Awards Odds

The regular season may be over, but the NBA has yet to dole out any hardware to the league’s best players.

On June 26th, players will wear their best (or extravagant) suit and anxiously wait if hear their name called.

Russell Wesbrook had a crazy season. He averaged a triple-double for the first time since Oscar Robinson did it decades ago. He should be a shoo-in for the MVP award.

The other awards being handed out on June 26th are Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year and Sixth Man Award.

All four awards are heavily favored, so there aren’t any dark horses I’d recommend.

How Did We Do?: 2016-17 NBA Season Wins Over/Under

2016-17 NBA Season Wins Over Under ResultsIt’s time to pop the champagne, guys!

Before the season began, we picked the NBA Season Wins Over/Under totals. We wrote out picks for the Eastern Conference and Western Conference before the 2016-17 season started.

We’ve always done really well with our NBA Over/Unders in the past and our results were solid this year.

We went 16-13-1 on the year. We hit on all the sleepers, but missed horribly on the Houston Rockets (I wasn’t sold on their depth). Vegas definitely cleaned house on a few teams since a handful of totals were won and missed by only a 1/2 win.

We list all the teams and what their over/under win totals were at the beginning of the 2016-17 NBA season. See which ones we hit and missed on this year.

2017 MLB Season Preview: New York Yankees

2017 MLB Season Team Preview New York Yankees Aroldis Chapman funnyBefore last season, I proclaimed, “The Yankees championship window is closing shut.” Well, thanks to the Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller trades, they jammed a crowbar in that window and swung it wide open. They made out like bandits in both trades.

There are rumors that the Yankees are stockpiling prospects to make a move on Angels outfielder Mike Trout, but I doubt any team will have enough talent to swap for the perennial MVP candidate.

I like the Yankees this season, but think they could run into some issues with their starting rotation. Will they try to make some moves early in the year to improve it?

Here is the 2017 MLB season preview for the New York Yankees.

2017 NBA All-Star Weekend Betting Odds & Picks

King Cake Baby NBA All Star Game 2017 betting oddsNBA All-Star Weekend is a fun time for NBA players to bask in their fame and rub elbows with celebrities. The game itself is usually high-scoring, but doesn’t get competitive until the fourth quarter, if it is close at all.

Some may even say the highlight of the weekend is the skills competitions that take place on Saturday night. The Slam Dunk competition has a few names in it, but nothing like the stars that would enter in its golden era. The three-point competition is probably my favorite competition of the night since there’s rarely ever something new tried in the dunk contest these days.

We list the betting odds for the All-Star Game MVP, Dunk Contest, Three-Point Competition, Rising Stars Game MVP and Skills competition winners. We also pick some winners for the prop bets.

Can D-League rookie Derrick Jones Jr. win the Slam Dunk Contest?

Super Bowl 51 – Betting Picks Against Spread & Prop Bets

Super_Bowl_51_LI_Logo_0I LOVE prop bets. I actually get more joy out of betting Super Bowl prop bets than betting against the spread. Yes, most are a crap shoot, but with the right research, you can end up winning bets with very favorable odds.

I’m not saying you can research who will win the coin toss, but there are many other player and team prop bets out there that have nice odds.

Some prop bets aren’t worth the money (the vig isn’t worth the slight risk), but sometimes you just have to lay a few bucks down, cross your fingers and wish for the best.

I picked out some of the most popular (and the most absurd) prop bets for Super Bowl 51. We also pick the game against the spread.

2017 NFL Conference Championship Games – Betting Picks Against Spread

ad2f41fc812a1b1ba3c16295e1d14e6027a3930f9ec1aaa67a65b380f6e514e6_largeI ended up going .500 against the spread and over/unders last week. I was burned by Seattle and many of the overs hit. I wasn’t as bullish on the scoring, just like this week.

Both conference championship games are rematches from games in late-October. All four teams were without at least one major player in those games. Heck, Ben Roethlisberger didn’t even play in their loss at home to the Patriots.

Which former teammates back will make the biggest impact on the ground in the Steelers/Patriots game, Le’Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount?

We pick every NFL Conference Championship games against the spread.

2017 NFL Divisional Playoff Games – Betting Picks Against Spread

Jerry Jones illuminati america's white boy nfl playoffs 2017 picks against the spread gambling sportsYour boy had a rough Wild Card Weekend. I missed a two over/unders by just a few points and really had a rough Sunday. I usually kill it in the postseason, so hopefully it was just an off week.

All four games this weekend are rematches from games early in the season. Don’t get too hung up on the outcomes from those games since all the games took place in September and October. Many impact players like Tom Brady and Dez Bryant didn’t even play in those contests.

Will the first-round bye leave teams rusty or will they come in well-rested?

We pick every NFL Divisional Playoff round games against the spread.
