Thanks for the support and opportunity, might as well start it off with something I don't recall ever doing is posting a -2.5 line, but here it is, thanks to JK, EOG and BETDSI

54 Flordia Panthers -2.5 -110

This contest has a really tough structure for hockey betting. You're almost forced into taking dogs without the benefit of a point spread or lean to totals. As we see here, month after month, hitting 60% of anything is difficult. Doing so using the NHL has to be the hardest.

Nice start today Sharky. Best of luck.

Thanks for the support fellas not sure what this month will bring with all the differences in rosters across multiple sports, helped yesterday, as much as I wanted to get involved in the NFL today Im trying to try to find another pucks play.

For sure…although when Sharkey gets to 15-6, he will not choke….

too hard on yourself VD, wasnt the finish you wanted but you still finished with a winning record. Had a great run going till late. This crap is way too close most time. I arguably should be 0-2 with Montreal up 2-1 late in the 2nd and needed 4 to cover and I get 2 late ones in the Calgary game and the last one was with the goalie back in after an emptynetter.How often does that happen? Hope the New Year treats you well in Thailand VD

Excellent strategy though JIMMY believes that tactic takes advantage of our rules.

Of course, I disagree with JIMMY.

The Challenge is tough enough already without forcing a play on every daily card.

Not being much of a hoops dude, the format makes it tough when there's one hockey/football game to choose from my side. If you want me to change a play at any point please tell me and I will do so. I'm trying to be creative but not sure that will give me the desired results.

monson has been holding the beach hostage since 2007, needs to be fired yesterday
by far the best facilities in big west, most fertile recruiting ground, but monson is a very lazy recruiter according to my aau contacts, and very arrogant and does not connect well with the players. not very good x and 0 either. made a career off of 1 yr wonder at gonzaga 25 yrs ago. was a total flop at minnesota also.

No need to change any plays, Mike.

One play per day and the play must be completed by month's end.
