It has been a very long time since I have updated this website, circumstances on a number of fronts prohibited this from happening. Obviously, trying to update a daily final score publication is no longer possible, but frequent commentary should not be troublesome.During the past three years, in addition to watching 90% of Netflix offerings, I have begun to review all the factors tied to the ODI system. The method has found more of a home in basketball than in football and through the first four weeks of 2017 my opinion was to jettison the project; then weeks five and six did as well as in the past. This indicated some fine tuning might be more valuable. When first aimed at College Basketball (1980s-90s) the method won at an 80% clip versus totals posted by offshore books. As a result, most foreign books stopped college totals for a short-time and I was hired by the STARDUST as a consultant.
This is the first major league baseball season that I kept more than just a shallow set of numbers, the goal has always - and still is to stick mostly with underdog road teams. Ideally, the best play is when the forecast has the road team either winning or even with a home favorite.There are two things that I am convinced are handicapping truths. (1) In baseball, pitching is far less important than how the team is playing. At mid-season, 213 different pitchers had started games and only 13 retained the ability to win when getting less than normal support. A pitcher W-L is more linked to offensive backing than the hurler’s talent. (2) Speed ratings are grossly over-rated in thoroughbred racing; far more essential is the horse’s current performance and placement in the proper race. Sorry, Beyer.Yes, I have been busy and work is continuing at a rather fierce pace for me. Stay tuned - more to follow in days ahead. This is probably the final year of my sports efforts, the remaining years with be “all thoroughbreds” and e-books on various topics.
