Ok, I’ve been getting a lot of emails, texts and tweets about Big Rips being slow. Well it’s the summer and I’ve been busy working on my golf game (it still sucks) and doing summer stuff like going to the North End pool (And if I believed in Heaven it would be how I picture it) and hanging in hip summer destinations like Hartford CT and Atlanta GA. Plus, my air-conditioner has been on the fritz so it’s been a balmy 78 degrees at the Big Rips HQ, too hot to blog. The other thing is that the summer is naturally the slowest season for sports betting, coincidentally today is the only day when there isn’t a professional sports game on (chicks soccer doesn’t count). I hate this day, it’s scary that it could be like this in the Fall/Winter if the NBA and NFL stay locked out.
So I’m not keeping up with baseball enough to bet on it daily, but wish I had picked one pitcher to ride the first half like I say I’m going to every year. Factoid for all you sports bettors out there. Doc Halladay was the most profitable starting pitcher in the first half of the MLB season to bet on. If you bet $100 per each of his 19 starts you’d be up about $1200 on your Book. So the $64K question who is the Doc Halladay of the second half going to be? My two horses I’m eyeing are David Price and John Lester. I will be honest and say that I feel terrible about not posting my regular golf picks so after I hit the publish button I will get straight to work on the BRITISH Open. I type BRITISH Open in caps because the Redcoats hate when you call it the British Open, they prefer it to be called the Open. Well, there is only one Open and that is the one that takes place on US soil…I will be posting my British Open bets shortly.
