First-ever 60 Dime play wasn’t meant to be Sunday, as the Packers left the backdoor wide open against the Redskins.
Not exactly pleased with yesterday’s result, obviously. But I’m more than pleased with the fact that I’m still 9-2-1 in the NFL (good for 249 Dimes of net profit) and still on an overall 20-9 roll (good for 321.5 Dimes of net profit).
Back at it Monday with a 30 Dime NFC East Game of the Month on tonight’s Giants-Eagles clash from Philly. I’ve nailed eight of my last nine 30 Dime plays, and tonight I’ll make it nine of 10.
Yes, the D-Train jumped the track yesterday. But that’s why you build the monster bankroll I’ve built for myself and my clients over the last month: So you can absorb a bad day or even a bad week. The results are there in black and white for you to review. Once you do, I think you’ll agree those results are still damn impressive.
On a nice 4-2 run with complimentary selections after the 49ers got it done in New Orleans on Sunday. For Monday’s freebie, we’ll head to the NBA and play the Suns as a home favorite against Minnesota.
This is a really tough spot for the Timberwolves, who are coming off last night’s 142-125 loss to Anthony Davis (50 points) and the Lakers. They never threatened to cover as a 10-point underdog, dropping them to 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games. A commonality in those four defeats: Minnesota’s defense was nowhere to be found, as it surrendered (in order) 115 points to the Grizzlies, 121 to Dallas, 139 to Oklahoma City and 142 to Los Angeles.
Tonight also marks the end of a four-game, six-day road trip for the TWolves, while the Suns return home after their own four-game trip in which they alternated wins and losses in Charlotte (109-104 win), Orlando (128-114 loss), New Orleans (139-132 win) and Houston (115-109 loss).
Phoenix already beat the TWolves once this season, prevailing 100-98 as a 4½-point road underdog back on Nov. 23. What’s notable about that result is Minnesota entered that game with two full days of rest following a home loss to the Jazz. Tonight, the TWolves are in a back-to-back AND three-games-in-four-nights situation, plus they’re capping what’s been a miserable road trip during which the defense has gotten progressively worse in each game.
Throw in the fact that all of Minnesota’s road losses this season have been by seven points or more, and I’m confident laying the chalk with the Suns is a smart investment.
