Thank you for the kind words, JK.

A big thank you for the invite.

Last time, quite a while ago, the results on center stage were lousy and humbling.

Let’s see if I can do better this time.

Hi - as the newb, can I get a clarification on #4? "-110 or LOWER"?

Does this mean we can only play favorites? No +120 odd plays?

Not at all, HCSKIP.

Underdogs are allowed but obviously not optimal.

Favorites priced at -111 or higher are not allowed.

Today’s play is
976 yanks Mets
Over 10
Still struggling to get the pinnacle lines from Vegas insider
It appears this is a fit
If I can somehow by hook or crook win after today I will be 1-1-1 which is a hair below true mediocrity

Final score: Las Vegas 74 Indiana 71.

Embarrassing situation for the Fever.

Down three points with seven seconds left, head coach Pokey Chatman draws up a play.

Candice Dupree swings the ball to the left side for a Tiffany Mitchell corner three.

What does Mitchell do?

She fakes a shot, steps inside the arc and shoots a 15-foot baseline jumper as time expires.

Twelve-year-olds don't make that mistake.

Ugh.
