There's no doubt about it: the running attack has no more effect on the outcome of a game than a deck chair blowing off the deck of the QE2 has on the course of the ship."
"The only angle we know is that any legs at all is the 'instant revenge' theory. This angle works when NBA teams face each other in back-to-back games in two different cities during the regular season.

"In the World Series team pitching is paramount. Consider the two staff ERAs in relation to their league ERAs and prefer the team with the greatest difference( Lest we forget, American League teams will always show more runs scored, courtesy of the designated hitter.)

"It is a good policy to maintain a separate bankroll for parlays. When you find a good parlay opportunity, take advantage of the higher odds and bet proportionately less on the parlay while making your normal bets on the individual games."
