    College Football Christmas Morning Is Here! My Best Season Win Total Bets

    Anytime some marquee date on the sports calendar arrives, we always seem to want to make a "Christmas morning" analogy (admittedly ignoring that it's probably slightly offensive to some of the folks out there who value religion).

    March Madness -- 4 Prop Bets For NCAA Title Game (And My Game Prediction)

    In Friday's post, it turns out I went a painful 0-2 on my Final Four semifinal selections with Kentucky missing by half a point against Louisville (in a game where in ultra-shady fashion, Louisville folded up their tents down eight with 30 seconds to go), and Ohio State choking away a double-digit l ...

    College Basketball: Sweet Sixteen Best Bets

    The casual fan likes March Madness because, unquestionably more than any other major sports postseason, the odds are at least only stacked manageably against the Davids (as opposed to football and series-based postseasons like baseball and in the NBA).

    Game Time: Assessing The 2010 Final Four

    ​I was on fire. As dismal as my bracket had become whittling the field down from 64 to 16 teams, once the field was down to the Sweet Sixteen, I was seeing things much more clearly.
