My fellow gamblers, good evening. I'm going to need to shift my intro soon to 'My fellow millionaires, good evening. Thanksgiving put another one in the win column. I'm 5-1-1 over my last seven picks leading into tomorrow and I look to only make all of you more money. I'm normally sad when the season is 3/4 of the way over anyway, but this year especially it will be sad to kiss such a profitable venture goodbye for a couple months.
All that said, it's obvious I want to celebrate how this year is going. I have always gambled with the philosophy of 'If you can't enjoy it when you're winning, you're certainly not going to enjoy it any other time'. BUT I'm also acutely aware I could go 0-5 this week. I assure all of my followers that my success has not impacted my preparation habits, just my intros.

My fellow gamblers, good evening. When I took up the position of Gambler in Residence here at A Spoonful of Sports it was after a 5-0 opening week. Although it gave me great confidence, I've been around gambling long enough to know how unsustainable such a record is. I started to come back down to Earth over the next couple weeks, but then I had my 7-2 week, and now I have a 4-1-1 week. Somehow I'm still over 60% on the season which no one in the famed West Gate Super Contest can say. I obviously hope this keeps going and that my new analytics methods hold, but more so, I hope you're out there making money off these picks.

Back to my winning ways after skipping a couple Thursdays. The under hit easily, so I hope while other people were concerned about that final drive, you were sitting comfortably figuring out how you were going to celebrate another win. Well, I told you how I liked this weekend's games, so instead of the four picks I made each of the last two weeks, I've got six for you including both the Sunday and Monday night contests. So settle into your favorite chair and let's keep up the +60% win rate!

Turns out me post amazing wedding and me post quiet reflection both result in 2-2 weeks. I'm disappointed in my teaser play so far, normally they make me a fair amount of money. I'm making up for it with the totals that I've nailed five in a row with. That's exactly where I'm going tonight too. Keep an eye out for the Saturday post, because unlike the last two weeks, I've got a lot more than four picks coming your way this weekend.

My fellow gamblers, good evening. Apologies for being MIA the last week or so. I assure you that you didn't really want to hear the reason and logic my brain was coming up with after having a wedding and drinking lots of whiskey in a cave while wearing a kilt to celebrate said wedding. I still managed to go 2-2 last week. I have a couple games I like this week. The point I made in my last post about not forcing things is something I stand by. It's easy to feel like you've got the hot hand, like I clearly did after the 7-2 week, and then ruin everything. As far as sports betting is concerned, you wait for your spots, and you hammer the week lines. There just aren't weeks with 9 vulnerable spots that often. We're stilling feeling fantastic with a 61% win rate just past the halfway point in the season though. Let's keep making our bookies question why they accept out action.

Welcome! My name is Chris Spooner. I am an overly-passionate Dolphins fan who has many opinions about his team, and the sports landscape as a whole. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy voicing them.
