I bet seven games on Tuesday and watched almost every sound bet I made come crashing down, the last four losses coming simultaneously............My day started off with me winning the Royals game, one that went to the late innings to decide, but then lost with CC and the Yanks........I should have known I was in for some trouble when I bet a total over 9 runs with two pitchers who had given up 49 runs in 11 starts only to see the game end 1-0. To make it even more of a dagger, how about a no-no..................I should say that I have a had a good baseball season this far and most of that is because I stay within the boundaries of taking no favorites over -130, don't play many totals and very rarely take the run line. Well I had already gone against two of those things and lost with the Yanks and OVER in the Minnesota game.........The real kick in the butt happened with all my late west coast games where I had a run lead or tied in the eighth inning in all four of them. One by one I got crushed beginning with the Rockies, then the Pirates, then the A's and then the Rangers. They all swung the other direction within 20 minutes of each other. That's bridge jumping type of material.........Even with the results, I probably would have done same thing with all four of those late games based on my numbers. It's just one of those things. But in the Yankees and Twins games, I went beyond my boundaries of normal betting...........Back to the drawing board today where the scores are all 0-0 right now.
