Hey Sherwood, cool idea about the online tutorial via Skype on Betfair for live NBA betting.....I am looking forward to it.....I hope I can make it....keep up the great work, and insightful picks.....I read them every day!
Thanks Jeff. I hope you can make it too. It's really a great way to wager as opposed to the traditional way. It's something worth learning for novices and experienced bettors.

Pete mentioned the metro division. I never understand how the Penguins continue to win with a depleted lineup, but they do. And the Rangers goaltending is not that bad, last time I looked it was a guy from Sweden named King Henrik. But I like the odds and I do like the Islanders so I would go for it
There you have it Pete, another endorsement for playing the Islanders at 11-1. That said and contrary to what you said Tom, King Hendrik has been on a steady decline for 3 years running and his time is up. He's no more than a aging, below average goaltender and we're not playing results. We said so last year and said so twice already this year before he allowed 6 goals twice.

Sherwood, I'm curious if you have an opinion in general about taking a solid favorite in hockey -1 .5 on the puck line. Very often it seems tempting since the payout is usually MUCH better and, of course, there's always that empty net goal possibility. Thanks.
A solid favorite? You mean a big favorite like -180 or so or a favorite that you believe will win? I'm not sure what you mean by a solid favorite. I would assume that would be one with a high win expectation like Chicago over Calgary last night....In any case and on a personal level, I would never lay big juice in any sport so the -1½ + juice option is one I would play instead of laying 2-1. Still, we seldom do it because there are thousands of games to choose from every year and these "big favorites" do not have a winning percentage over the past 15 years when spotting 1½-pucks. Like everything else, there are good times to pull the trigger on these games with the empty net goal being a great "back-door" possibility but there is a reason that the books offer big take-backs on these and it's because it's a low percentage play in most cases. Good luck Glenn and thanks for writing.
