Sports Network co director.
Um, just wanted to, um, do stream today of my basically my bed and guide for tonight.
I'm gonna go over some MBA games.
We're gonna talk Thursday night football as well.
Uh, with the cowboys and the Chicago Bears, make sure to give us a fall.
Um, you know myself, Mark Belleville, Um, m Belleville 23 on Twitter, um, are unwrap sports Network, which is a bunch of great guys.
I'm talking about sports and has such great insight on a lot of things I do with sports from MBA, NFL, UFC racing, so many different things.
Um, unwrap sports network and then us at bets on wraps were put out winners every day.
Myself and my other two co directors, Cory and Zach were doing a great job, so make sure you stay tuned to that.
Won't try to win some money.
So tonight I want to start out.
What's up, Perry? Thanks for joining the broadcast, man.
Um, tonight I want to, but the game's in the n b a. Tonight.
Um, so I'm gonna go over.
Um, the game's on that a little bit.
About what the bedding means.
And I had some people, you know, message me and we're kind of asking me, you know, was the team's getting points? What is that mean? Where do they have to do the window? If they're giving points, what is would have to do to win? So, um, I'll just start by going with the first game on the night.
Today is the 76 so this'll game.
The line is Philadelphia minus eight, which basically means Philadelphia's minus eight points and that the Wizard's air plus eight points.
I'm so in order for Philadelphia tow cover the spread.
They have to win by more than eight points.
Um, in order for Washington to cover the spread they can actually lose.
But if they lose by less than eight, then they actually win because they're getting eight points.
The final score is is one await one? 01 filly wins.
Washington actually wins that bet.
Could you add heat to them? That's actually 1091 a week is a final score.
So says pretty simple.
You know, you can either do that, which is you spread a couple other bets.
They always have an over under, usually for the game and over Understood.
Pretty simple as well.
Um, in this case, it's 2 37 for this game.
So that just means do you think the total points combined between both teams is gonna be either? Um, and then you have what they call a money line pick.
So money line pick is no spread involved.
It's just a straight up pick.
Um, obviously, if you picked a strange winner as, ah, a big favorite, the payout isn't as great.
But on the other hand, if you do pick a big underdog is I'm one of those in favor than the payout is a lot greater.
So, um, and this game, I do like the 76 years undercover, that eight points, um, 70 Sixers.
They're not on back to back, which is good for them as good for bedding because that means guys aren't sitting followed men's, but they're a team that likes to sit and be.
I was I was one of the best players on back to backs, So as long as they're fully healthy and playing, I do like them.
One strategy that I do have when I bet, especially on basketball, is always when I actually put my bets, and I always try to wait as close the game time as I possibly can.
I know that effects the spread sometimes spreads can go up and down.
But I always do that because the injury report in the MBA is Sally the NFL, where you haven't been active list on an active list that comes out, Um, you know, like an hour an hour and 1/2 before kickoff.
This'll you have guys a pressure.
What load management, like those guys aren't ruled out.
So sometimes almost up until right up until tip, you have guys that a true, legitimate game time decision sometimes, and they're not ruled out.
So almost close to tip is well, so whenever you're you're betting on these games, it's obviously always, you know, you want to know who's playing in order to make your best.
You know, educated.
Guess on on who's gonna win.
Um, so in this game, would you like to 76 years? I do believe they'll be able to, um, control this game.
The Wizards this year have been a pretty high scoring team, but I do think Philly defensively has the length of the big guys to compact, that they should be able to slow them down, get a lot of rebounds holding toe one shot.
So not multiple possessions.
They get a lot of their points off for rebounds, kick out the reason stuff for the for the Wizard.
So I think Philly with everybody we have on the list, is the Rockets and the Raptors.
Um, so this is another tough game from this is basically a pick up game that spreads only one and 1/2 minus one and half of Tron.
So, um, the Raptor had it tough loss the other night, their first home loss to the Miami Heat.
I think part of that was the heat obviously played well, but I think part of that was getting Kyle Lowry back.
Integrated into the system was about for a few weeks later.
You can tell he was a little rusty shuttle for 11 from three.
I need such a high volume shooter.
It takes a lot of contested shots and things like that.
But we all know Larry's.
He's a better pewter for 11 so I don't think we will.
Larry will have that same type of night tonight.
Question being back in second game back.
Um, I do like the over in this game as well. 230.
They're both too high scoring teams.
Um, James Harden is going to get his mind.
I was talking about early with my other co directors.
Cory on this is gonna prep player prop out there for harder and I believe over 37 a half of 32nd half points on like that.
And I think he does go over that.
Which is crazy to say that that's, you know, a guy.
You just automatically assume that he's getting 40 points.
But that's just how good heartedness, Um and and and the rockets, they come rough, tough losses.
Well, to the they have a 20 point lead.
I came to the Spurs the other day.
Um, and they you know, a lot of that happens.
You know, the Rockets are good enough that offensively build out big leads get out to big leads because they can score in Bunches and score very quickly.
But like like we talked about and my guy Michael, we're watching a stream earlier, he was starting about this.
Hardin is all he's in, isolation player.
And so if they're running down the shark lock and hardens doing his, you know, struggling step back to see who's got the ball for the hole shot clock on these missing shots and allows other teams setting it back into games quickly as well.
And that's what you saw.
I know if there's ever any a point where he goes cold them, it's, you know, it's kind of what you saw the other night with Spurs and how they come back.
So, uh, this game, my late Theron's oh, minus one and 1/2.
I do think it will be close.
I think that line's right where it needs to be at one and 1/2 and also I like the over at 2 30 um, the next game on the schedule.
Um, we have the Denver Nuggets at the New York Knicks.
So the Knicks, the last game that, uh, they play, they played against Milwaukee, and I believe that last night. Thanks 43.
Eso actually brought on that game.
It is Milwaukee minus 16 and 1/2.
It was that game, you know, When you giving up big point spreads like that, it's usually a sweat.
But this game was even a sweat covered.
You know, the books were the best team in the league right now, and the Knicks are bottom of the barrel.
But still, you expect games to be similar with that big point spread to kind of come down to the wire.
But this game, it's the Denver Nuggets minus nine.
Um, so I do like Denver to cover that nine points.
The Knicks are just there in shambles right now.
I don't think they bounce back from that big loss.
Uh, Denver is one of the better teams in the league.
A cz Well, do you think Yokich with all that he does triple double wise passing, rebounding, scoring.
He should be able to have a great day.
Great night against the Knicks on the interior there.
I don't think Julius Randle.
So I don't think they just have the guys that could match up with him.
Um, it was like another guy that could have a big game for them is Jamal Murray.
Mary can, obviously he's been penetrated can shoot the Midori, and she's a good three point shooter.
Um, I need him in Yokich.
Work well off the pick and roll and things like that.
I just don't think the Knicks, you know, this is just a typical game with the Nuggets.
Just have more firepower than the New York Knicks right now comes.
I do like that a lot.
Yes, His line is heavy, though, but you're right the next.
And that's exactly what you know.
That's I mean, that's one reason why I picked the Bucks you today.
And it's either a game where I'm never picking the If I'm betting on this game, I'm betting the Nuggets that I'm never betting the next.
You know, it's it's.
The Knicks are not a good enough team when they're playing a top tier talent like the Nuggets or the box, or it's just it's tough for them to hang around.
They don't have the firepower that all of the scoring teams are, just that they're better than them.
More talent, them are always gonna probably prevail in the end.
If you just looking at this game from the pier, you know, basketball even the casual fear.
Not even a guy who follows a sport.
Anything like that.
Andi, you just don't see that the Nuggets are just a better team.
That should be the next by double digits every time they play.
So I don't mind that minus nine there for Denver and think they do cover.
Um, What's up, Mike? Thanks for doing the podcast, man.
Great job on your first broadcast.
By the way, that was awesome.
I know it's tough, obviously looking and trying to figure out I'm trying to talk about stuff and things like that.
Sometimes you get that deer in headlights.
Look where you know you'll be wondering what's talk about next, but so is going people to join it in and asking questions and things like that, and it kind of keeps it flowing and stuff.
So So that's awesome.
Um, I kind of go back.
I already talked about a few games, Mike, but I'll go back as I know you're asking about, um, spreads.
And, you know, you had that question about the heat and I'll tell you and I was way wrong on that game, and I admit it, Sam.
I hope I make your rich just just follow and you know, we're doing good.
We're winning, you know, Right now we're in a lot of games, so betting is always difficult.
It's what they call it gambling.
So there's always that chance you can lose, but something to make her proper, educated guesses on who's gonna win and hopefully winning more than you're losing.
And that's always a good thing.
But Mike, me and Mike were talking yesterday about the Celtics and the Heat game, and and he was actually, and he was right on that.
When he was, he thought the Celtics were gonna win by 10 points.
I believe, he said, and they have blown him out.
You know what my thing was? Um, I know that he were on the back to back, and we have the Heat have been the best team against the Spread this year.
They were covering like 76 claim of the time this year, another big game against the Celtics to prove themselves because I don't even know that he has, You know, there was a second seat.
A lot of people are so down on them and say, Hey, video games against the top teams.
And they just had done that the paper for in Toronto.
So I know they were.
They were pumped for that game, you know, come to find out.
Expulsions out there is a kid is being born.
So he's out back in Miami with his family, so that obviously affects the team.
But one thing I really thought I was gonna affect the Celtics more was that Marcus Smart was applying.
And I said I took that into consideration.
And I thought, you know, since Marcus Smart, you're gonna be playing Jimmy Butler will have a huge game, and, um, the supporting cast is good enoughto keep that game close.
Even though I do think the subjects were the better team.
I don't think the Celtics will win, but I think that he can't five and 1/2 points.
They would've been able to keep that with them a 34 point game and cover that spread.
Um, and I was kind of exactly right.
Marcus Martin played Jimmy Butler absolutely went off, but his guys around him is supporting.
He had 34 points, I believe.
I don't think anybody else had double digits on this.
Just just credit to the Celtics, and that's you know that happens, you know, in games.
Um, I saw my back to the games here.
I'm gonna go over like that.
Spreads and stuff like that Did it on the first game.
Kind of picked three games already.
But over this last one here, the sons and the pelicans.
So, um, you have your point spread like we're talking about the heat and Celtics.
So this game, the New Orleans and Sons game, it's Norm's minus three and 1/2.
Which means that for New Orleans to cover this spread, they have to win the game by at least four points.
So if New Orleans wins, beats Phoenix by four points, they cover Phoenix.
They can lose, but if they lose by, you know, less than four because they're getting three and 1/2 they would actually cover that spread, and they would actually, they would actually win.
Um, so you have your point spreads, which, which we just explained that you have what they call a Moneyline picks.
So Ah, Moneyline pick is just when you pick the winner of the game So if I just want the pelicans to wait.
If I don't want to use any points, if I think they're just gonna win out right, I could just money lying that just picked them out.
So when you have a favorite, if you money line a favorite, no, there's not always 1/2 a point.
Um, there's always like you have like the Denver next game.
It's the spread is nine points.
So, um, half a point Israeli means that can be no push.
Obviously, Ambassador, you can't score half a point, so there would be no push and betting you can, Actually, depending on what sports book you bet with Anna while hand Road Island at our casino at our sports book.
If you push of that, you can actually still win.
You don't win the full amount of money, but you still take backs and profit.
Um, so on an even number, um, spread.
So, like the Knicks and Nuggets game, that's nine points Nixon again.
That's nine points.
If the gets where the wind by nine points, thank you would actually be a push.
Um, so if I would bet that and, um, that would equal push, I would actually still win.
Like I said, I don't believe that's different between that's up to the sports book that you use or whatever.
Um, but 1/2 a point.
If you see 1/2 a point in there, that could just never be a bush.
Um, see, always gonna have a winner or a loser.
So the other things that you can bet on in there are, um is the over under.
So the over under is always total points that you think is gonna be scored between both teams combined.
So you have in this game the over on just 35 a half.
Um, so do we think that the some Republicans combined total points will be over that number? Or do you think it'll be under that number? So whatever you think that's what you would bet on that, um, this game If for my pick, I do like the pelicans minus three Now, um, the Suns have just had a rough last couple of games.
They played the Charlotte Hornets.
Uh, the other night they're up 20 at halftime.
Ended up being down seven with two minutes left in the game.
and if not for an unbelievable run by Kelly You Bray, who just scored like a straight points on his own, they wouldn't have won that game.
And then my son at Orlando.
They played, and they just got blown out by the Magic by 20 points.
So, um, this game there are two back to back to make.
The pelicans are tough matchup for them.
I don't think that they have anybody who can match what Brandon Ingram was on a roll this year.
Um, the um, Devin Booker hasn't been playing that well.
Going back to the couple games go to a Charlotte game between that game in the last game.
He's just very looks like It's very indecisive lately and I was watching the game, and even on the broadcast, they were saying he was just He was hesitant and I was three point shot.
He was not making the right decisions on whether to shoot that three or put it down and hit her head to the basket.
Um, so when Devon Booker's not playing well, which is kind of in that kind of stretch right now, eso eso goes the, um you know, Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Suns.
Something wrong? They are better team this year, but I have said this a lot lately.
I love how what they did in signing Ricky Rubio.
I think Rubio is the perfect player for that team.
Hey, allows Devin Booker to get in his spots.
He runs good offense and allows the sons to get in the right areas to make a move in basketball.
As you know, this backed Bonds back.
He's obviously one of the best young players in the league, so I do think he'll bounce back as well.
But again, it's back to back, which is always tough in the n B A.
Um, it's a spreads not too big.
It's minor story and 1/2 pelicans are at home.
Um, so I'm going with the team that's playing, you know, I think the problem is playing a little bit better right now than the Suns.
Um, Perry, we got to do Perry's partly of the day today.
Just so you know, I know you're big on that, so we got to get a little bit, you know, a couple of couple of picks there going for that.
Um, so we'll see.
Well, we'll talk about that, and we'll see what we like for that.
I'm just to keep this thing rolling here.
Um, So, um, that's good question.
Like so, um, I'll go over a few things, so you could have Yeah, the two little three tumors are awesome.
You know, my You know, I did that crazy partly last night, Very where I picked old.
I had never done this, and I picked I just picked all the n b A games.
I just wanted to see how it would do in picking him and all the games, and I just put 20 bucks on it, and the palace, like 12,000 was absolutely crazy, but, um, ended up going seven and three, which I didn't win the parley.
Um, but you still it allowed me to just see, like, I I felt good because I picked pick seven winners, which is unbelievable if I had straight, But all those I would have came out with a huge profit.
Um, so back to your question, Michael part.
Let's talk over all the types of bets that you can do.
Um, so you could have just a straight bat where you just pick a game.
So you if you want to do a straight back on, um, would you get straight by any straight bet, anything you could straight, but, um, the spread you castrate that the over under, you get straight back.
If you just wanted money, line somebody.
So a straight bat is when you just pick it to the team.
So if I wanted to strip at the pelicans minus three and ask, it would just be one team.
So it would just be that one game I picked me, I put $50 or whatever it is on it.
T o win some money.
A parlay is when you have multiple teams.
So you have, um if I wanted to pick all four games tonight and you can parlay anything partly is anything that's more than once you get to 2345 you know, um, so when you have multiple games, you pick to the winners for all four of those games, you end of winning your parlay.
That multiplies the odds.
So that payout was much bigger if you hit all the games.
The downside of that, though, is if you lose a game.
Um, if you lose the game, you lose the parlay.
So say, you had, like, 14 partly going, you know, this is the worst experience, but he had 1/4 14 parlay going on one of the game's tipped off seven o'clock.
And you automatically, Unless that seven game right away.
And that was your first game.
The parley is over. You lose.
So the other games don't even matter the other 30.
I'm so in order to win a part that you have to hit all of the bets that you put that you placed from the one rule that I usually have is obviously thrown that out the window for last night.
But that was just me being crazy.
I usually never liked to bet more than three teams in a parlay.
Um, yes, I apologize about that smoke in my fault, but the heat to mess up your parlor, Um, which is crazy cause I picked seven, right? So all we had to do was just switch one, and it would have been golden.
But, you know, stuff happens.
So we have, uh where was s o about the parleys? Um, my one rule is is, I never put 1/4 team in a parlay.
Um, because if you your odds go extremely down when you add that fourth team, Um, when you had that fourth team, so I usually just take the three at the most, and it's total defy.
This is really gonna pay out.
Um, one of the other things you could do is what they call them a teaser.
Um, this is kind of get a little in depth there, but a teaser.
You can basically change the point spreads.
Um, in the over underlines eso If you picked multiple teams like three teams, you want to a three team parlay, you can actually turn that into a three team teaser and the teaser, depending on what sport book yet with the lines are, it will allow you to change.
Um, it will allow you to change.
Smaller pay up with Hi, Roge. All right, Perry.
But it allowed you to change the line.
So, for instance, if the Philly game right now, the Philly Sixers game is minus eight in the overall just to 37.
So if I wanted to do a six point teaser which would leave at 66 and 1/2 7 makes that everything's different.
You can pick what point you want to use.
Um, the line would actually go.
Philly minus two and then over under would go down to 2 30 I was one of the under.
It would go down to 2 30 one of the Underwood going to 43.
So we go up six and I get it would help me, because the odds would be the lines would be a little bit easier.
Obviously, I think they're gonna cover minus C.
But what? I feel more comfortable with them covering only two points.
Yeah, of course.
Um, so that's a little bit there about a teaser.
Um, so I thought that's all tough.
It it's one of those things too.
Like me when I started gambling are inside of betting on sports.
It's I have to get used to it too.
I was the same thing of something I was like, What the hell's a part? Like what the heck is? You know, how do I win? Why? I just want to spend.
Why did I actually lose because you know what I mean.
So it's a lot of questions that you gotta ask yourself and do.
And there's always a lot of research that could be dying, especially like in the N B A.
Like I was talking to Mike last night about that, like Is a team on it back to back? How are they playing? What's especially now? What load management, like, Who's playing, who's who's not gonna be planning The Clippers had a bunch of games? Uh um, yeah, it's it's actually it's actually really fun when you get the hang of it like Prayer said.
He's he's enjoying it.
When you get the hang of it, it's super fun, but it's even to the point where, like obviously, everybody likes women.
But just like this is like betting on games with the D.
A general in Russia kind of like just puts a little bit more.
You have a little bit more invested in the games when you put a little money on it, and it's not your body responsibly to, and you know it is what it is like myself and, you know, you know, I know Perry of seeing it would have been $20.
But, you know, we're not breaking the bank.
So when this money, we're not mortgage in our houses and stuff like that, so it's only to be in response.
Won't gamble responsibly, even if you're losing it.
Still really, really fun. It's a good time.
Obviously, nobody likes to lose.
You'd rather win, but you can still have a good time with it.
And just enjoying it is is you know, just like I said, you have more investors kind like when you do like a fantasy fantasy football fantasy, the vast wall, whatever you're into, a forest fantasy sports you just have more invested in all the games.
You might be a certain family.
I'm a Celtics fan, but I find myself watching all the games because I'm betting on this team or that team.
Really? So you're just more invested in the league and everything as a whole, Uh, on which is which is awesome.
So I'm gonna right now, I hope that answers your questions.
Um, Thanks, man. I appreciate that.
Um, you know, hoping.
I mean, I hope people following it and listen to this I mean, We're doing great things for thank you, said Benson.
Wrath with three and one last night.
You know, my personal record of the last two weeks is 39 24 1 So I mean, that's if it's crazy that I'm up a lot right there.
So that's that's nuts.
You know? The proper percentage, I think to be kind of considered successful, is if you're winning 54% of your bets.
Um, which is you know where above that right now.
So it's just it's we're giving away free money.
Basically, um, they got 54 to 59%.
So we're right around that, if not more so I do.
I think we're doing a great job.
We have a lot of good.
We have a lot of good minds, you know, between myself, Peri, Cory, Zack.
A lot of guys in the department we all know world.
We all have knowledge about individual sports like, you know, I'm a big basketball guy. Follow it.
I know he's been in the basketball football and Zach's huge in the college football and we all go over our picks to put out and give you guys the best concert that we can for our best place of the day.
And so far it's working also, I just I hope everybody's, you know, everybody's get taken advantage of that.
Parry Parry is only three weeks into it, but he's obviously you can see he's done a lot of research.
So, um, there you go.
Um, So, um you know, back So just crowded to recap everything here.
Um, I'm gonna go with, um, 70 sixers tonight minus C.
I'm gonna go with the Toronto Raptors minus one and 1/2 today.
I'm gonna go with the Nuggets minus nine on, but I'm gonna go with the New Orleans Pelicans at minus three and 1/2.
I'm just gonna go straight spreads.
I'm not gonna go in the over unders.
Spreads with what it's been working out for me personally recently.
S Oh, that's kind of what I'm hot on right now.
So that's what I'm gonna stick to.
And that's another thing.
So you'll find your groove.
You You look for trends and things like that, you know? I mean, my buddy, we're betting, um, this is the craziest trend, but we're betting college basketball.
This last week They had a bunch of the tournaments and stuff, you know, the ones again at the Hamas and all these confident interconference tournaments and stuff.
And, you know, we found out a trend that Gail tea Ivy League teams in the first half of cover to spread.
Um, at that point, they were three now and covering first half spreads.
So we just went crazy on those spreads.
And we ended up getting the first half on every time.
And I do. The team had a game.
We would, but the first half in favor of them and we actually ended up going six and three.
So you actually look for trends like that and and a lot of, um, follow suit if you're hot and you need to stick with us off like an M b A mining heat for a while, kind of get off topic here a little bit.
You know, I was going over my what I like for tonight but the Miami heat for a while we're covering everything.
So I was just out of port lives right in the heat every game.
That's kind of what I fell back on last night, too.
But um, they were covering everything.
So I mean, if you get into a good thing, right that team, if you end up losing one game, then you lose it.
But the winds, you know, on a team that's hot, you're gonna end up getting more than you lose.
Um, I'm gonna get back to my my recap.
Those are the four games.
Um, I do have some of pelicans by the street half Denver minus nine in Toronto, minus one and 1/2 on and then the Sixers might have seen and 1/2.
So, um, you can't but that she goes to, um that would be a crazy profit.
I mean, I'm sure Perry would agree with that.
So that's another thing I'm not before I get off the stream, all kind of talk about really quickly so you could actually do what they called prop bets.
Well, Mike, am I brought That is like it's like a player back.
So, for instance, we have one that we put out there for bets on rap for James Harden.
I think it was 36 a half of 37 a half points.
So do we think he's gonna go over that everything is gonna go under that you could do over under on, like, assist.
Number is on Steele's numbers.
Points, obviously, Um, I know, come, this is a little ways away, but I know you know football.
You could do Russian guards passing yards, receiving yards.
But, you know, in the Super Bowl, they even have crazier profits.
They like, you know, there's one that's like a national anthem, is it? You know, under two minutes are over two minutes for the national anthem.
It's just some of the things that you can bet on that absolutely crazy, um, Marine Five a couple years ago, just a, um, halftime show for the Super Bowl.
And they had a proper what song? They were gonna play first.
Like it's almost impossible to pick that.
But, you know, people bet on it.
You know, it's just that you can literally just about bet on anything nowadays.
It's It's absolutely crazy.
Um, so I'm gonna wrap this up, guys.
Thanks for joining me.
Hope that help Mike a little bit of hope to understand.
And I wish you luck if you start.
You know, if you find out you're taking our advice? Uh, everything.
Hope we can win you some money.
Perry will talk about how we're gonna do a parlay of the day.
Perry's hashtag Perry's parlay of the day.
We got to get it trending on Twitter.
Um, you can follow me.
