I have a fever. Sports betting fever. And the only cure is jazz flute. Since I don't see any of that around, I'm placing sports bets. This is not going to be nearly as entertaining as Biatch's, and I don't have time to research hilarious things like betting teams that are favourites for some reason while being winless, etc. I do loooove getting better than 2:1 though.So far I look like a sucker - lots of favourites and overs. This trend is very likely to be reversed in the future, just liked a few over lines today, and I think the favourites are undervalued in the NFL. I plan on taking the under for pretty much every Blues game and Lundqvist start. Note that all bets are placed on Pinnacle or bet365, and I'm often adjusting lines because its fun. I may place 0-2 bets on any St. Louis under if I like the line (or not) that game, but the running line assumes 1 unit/game.St. Louis Under total: +0.81 unitsBeginning of day total: +0 unitsBets placed so far:NFL:(2 units) New Orleans -3.5 (2.03) over SFRESULT: -2 unitsDenver/NE - Over 50 (1.98)RESULT: +0.98 unitsNHL:(2 units) Boston -1.5 (2.43) over Hurricanes RESULT: -2 unitsNYR/TOR Over 5.5 (2.24)RESULT: -1 unit.SJ/CLB Over 5.5 (2.15)RESULT: -1 unit.(2 units) MIN/ST.L Under 4.5 (2.49) - adjusted, original line of 5.0 (push)RESULT: -2 units

Only game from Biatch's list I could find that was still active:NBAWashington +8 over 76ers (1.901)RESULT: -1 unit
In later betting, took Denver +14 at 1.99 and 2.01 (1 unit each).RESULT: -2 unitsSo far...things don't look good. Lost two units on New Orleans - didn't see the game, but seems like it was fantastic. New Orleans was probably the better team, but SF put together an impressive offence, and 5 turnovers is just impossible to overcome.My overs are also looking terrible. So far backup goalies Biron, Greiss and Sanford have combined to give up 2 goals in 7 periods of hockey.edit - goddamnit, now Carolina with a late goal, so Boston needs another plus an empty-netter. yucko.edit2 - i might be broke by the end of the night!edit3 - I desparately need that St. Louis game under. So of course St. L just scores 2, and now I need to sweat another 25 minutes without much room. Felt pretty good about this game at 1-0.Running total: -10.02 unitsTotal: -10.02 unitsSt. Louis Under total: +0.81 units.
Long signatures are really annoying.
