Huge dogs vs huge favs

Saturday NHL...Canes -354 vs Wings +258 & Leafs -344 vs Sens +274. Haven't the Sens beaten the Leafs SU several times this season already?

NCAAF dogs the past month or two. It seems almost every time i look they are winning ATS at a very profitable rate. Many winning SU, even quite a number of DD dogs.

NCAAB likewise. UCLA & ORU being two recent high profile examples.

Has covid, in the past year or so, been "the year of the dog"? My impressions are that it has been a profitable one for dog bettors, even more than usual.

Will it continue?

EOG contributor SMARTZ connected on an underdog (MMA fighter Dan Moret) last night at +425.

I bet any team or individual at +200 or more and they typically play like a dog.

Seems like it anyway.

Baylor on the money line was a live piece Monday night.

The Bears never trailed and led by as many as 20 before eventually winning by 16.


TYVM Morgan William!!!
LA Lakers +550 ML crushed Brooklyn by 25 points tonight.

Day started with Leeds United shocking soon-to-be Premier League Champs Man City 2-1 after going down a man before 1h although up 1-0. City tied it with about 15 minutes left and I am certain you could have received far more than the +700ish Leeds was pre-game on them winning when tied and down a man. I'd be stunned if you didn't get at least +1500 or more

The Marlins started the MLB day with an afternoon win over Jacob deGrom and the New York Mets.

I saw Miami +240 before first pitch.

The Mets failed to score a run at home.

Dogs are rolling ATS in the NBA today. Will it continue with the 2 late games or are the favs the better bet?

The Mets are 36-43 all time when Jacob deGrom starts.

His combined ERA in all those starts: 2.08.

What a waste.
MLB dogs crushed it on Winsday, going 11-3 SU for an extremely high profit day. On Tuesday they also rolled going 10-6 SU.

In the NHL favs went 4-2 to gain less than one unit. On Tuesday it was also 4-2 for just over +1 unit.

In the NBA dogs were 6-5-1 ATS. [Orlando won SU at +375 ML.] On Tuesday they were 3-4 ATS.

I read the Leafs dominated the game. They cost me an "all in" type of bet on Away Teams -350 which pushed.

I wonder what the dog price was when the Leafs were -2000.

"The dogs are barking in MLB for 2021...

Dogs are currently 110-118 this season for a +12.5% ROI!

For comparison sake, they had a -4.6% ROI in 2020 and a -3.6% ROI in 2019. A little regression might be due."
