NBA – (503) NEW YORK at (504) CLEVELAND  8:05 ET  TNT  (side and total)

For these line moves we should have Hotels.com Captain Obvious do them. Does it surprise anyone Cleveland with LeBron and his new friends has blown up from -10 to -13? And given the #Cavaliers will be WAY better offensively than defensively to start the season and if you saw New York ALMOST attempt to play defense last night against Chicago, are you shocked the total was jettisoned from 199 to 203? Talk about Hot in Cleveland! SWM Take – Cleveland covers and Over

As one who has long been called a Captain Obvious, it never hurts to have the obvious underscored, and a Captain is a good one to bring the measure to greater focus- However, not to be critical, but the stars on his lapel suggest he is a "Commodore"., a one star Admiral, where as a Captains insignia is an Eagle with Wings Wide- for this Navy veteran this is an obvious oversight by marketing folk who never served in the Military- Obviously. PS, the gold leaf on his Captains hat, is more a kin to that of a commander, which is a rate below a US or Nautical Captain- Even so, I still love the ad-campaign. Thanks for adding me to your circles, Cheers- Alex Boyle, U.S. Georgia-

CFB – (181) FLORIDA STATE at (182) N.C. STATE 3:30 ET  ABC/ESPN2  NEW

If you are getting bored with Jameis Winston’s antics, you are not alone. He’s starting to become as annoying as the Kardashian’s. Though nobody in the Florida State program is saying anything, you know Jimbo Fisher wants to focus on football, not distractions. Football bettors also have concerns about the Noles, and have sent them from -23 to -18.5. Besides Winston’s ongoing saga, a veteran offense line is only generating 110 YPG on the ground and Florida State is 1-11-1 ATS against N.C. State since 2001. If Seminoles come to play, they cover no problem, but if they do not, we will see! SWM Take – Lean N.C. State #winners   #bettingtips   #collegefootball

Sports Watch Monitor NFL Line Moves and Today’s Top Trends 

By Doug Upstone

Have to say, this has been one of the quietest weeks in terms of line moves I have seen by midweek in the NFL in years. Oh sure I still plenty to write about, but many of the moves happened on Monday and it has been quieter than New Orleans coaches talking about how great their defense was going to be before the season.  Like we say every day, understanding line moves can build your bankroll. (128-103 L51D)

NFL – (451) SAN DIEGO at (452) BUFFALO 1:00 ET  CBS

Buffalo is off to a 2-0 start and has been lifted from -1 to -2.5 because of San Diego’s situation. The #Chargers upset Seattle at home on a short week and now have to travel three time zones to play a noon start out East. Football bettors think this is a taxing schedule and are lining up early with the #Bills. Betting Trend – 59 percent backing San Diego #NFL   #freenflpicks

CFB – (351) MICHIGAN STATE at (352) OREGON  6:30 ET  FOX

In spite of what appears to be a good matchup, the money is flowing towards Oregon up from -11.5 to -13. Clearly the thought is how does Michigan State match points with the #Ducks or try and contain their speed? Your spread winner will be who controls the tempo and usually in Eugene, it’s the home team. Update – By Wednesday, Oregon was hovering at -12, but early Friday afternoon they were back to -13. However, respected money seems to be driving this number with the Ducks at only 31 percent of bets placed. SWM Take – Lean Oregon to cover #Spartans #collegefootball2014   #footballbetting

CFB – (157) OHIO STATE vs. (158) NAVY  12:00 ET  CBSSN

This line moving Ohio State from -17.5 to -14 has everything to do with Braxton Miller being lost for the season. The #Buckeyes redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has been heaped with praise since, ascending to the job. But what else is Ohio State supposed to say? The Ohio State defense will be the deciding factor if they are to cover and against a rare veteran Navy squad, whom you have to mentally ready to play a full 60 minutes. Betting Trend – 78% on Ohio State to cover

MLB - (913) SAN FRANCISCO at (914) KANSAS CITY 8:05 ET  FOX

The baseball season will conclude tonight and while it is exciting to have a Game 7, yet it has not been what you would call a compelling series with all but one game decided by five runs or more. Off the #Royals blowout 10-0 wipeout in Game 6, bettors are aligning with Kansas City to clinch the World Series (88 percent) for the first time in 29 years, going from -125 to -146 at last look. This especially makes sense when you know K.C. is a perfect 10-0 this season after scoring nine or runs. SWM Take – Kansas City wins

Sports Watch Monitor Line Moves and Today’s Top Trends for Thursday

By Doug Upstone

A lot of excitement coast to coast for the start of the NFL season and we are ready with information. Plus we the latest line moves on three Thursday MLB contests. Like we say every day, understanding line moves can build your bankroll. (109-81 L45D)

NFL – (461) GREEN BAY at (462) SEATTLE 8:30 ET  NBC

Have to admit caught off guard a little with the total rising from 45 to 46.5. While both offenses can move the ball, the defenses, especially Seattle’s, keep teams out of the end zone. The #Seahawks are 26-11 ATS the past two years and the average total score of these games have 41.3 PPG. Update - Most offshore sportsbooks have still have this NFL opener at 46.5, however, the majority of Vegas books are up to 47, with 65 percent of bets placed on the OVER.  SWM Take – Lean Under   #packers   #NFL   #bettingtips

Sports Watch Monitor Line Moves, Top Trends and Free Picks for Hump Day

By Doug Upstone

We are to that time of the year when oddsmakers post big numbers on favorites, daring baseball bettors to take the underdog and for the most part they do not and the numbers keep rising. Here are four MLB contests which caught our attention. Like we say every day, understanding line moves can build your bankroll. (97-74 L42D)

MLB – (957) CHIC. CUBS at (958) CINCINNATI  7:10 E  CSN-C, FSO

The #Cubs have moved within three games of the loss column of extracting themselves from last place in the NL Central and could move a game closer to fourth place against Cincinnati, whom they are chasing. There is a lot of excitement around Chicago these days, as they have been playing better since bringing up their young minor league studs and highly touted slugger Jorge Soler is expected to make his major league debut Wednesday night. The #Reds have the look of a fisherman on the Ohio River who never had a bite all day, losing eight of their last 10. Cincy opened as -170 home favorites and sunk to under -150, with Mat Latos (4-3, 2.99) taking the ball. Situation still favors Cincinnati since Chicago is 4-16 having won four of their last five games since last season. SWM Take – Cincinnati wins

NFLX – (255) CAROLINA at (256) NEW ENGLAND  7:30 E  Panthers TV, WBZ

New England being a public team is always going to get the benefit of the doubt from those betting football and the #Patriots have been elevated from two points to -6.5. New England took advantage of four Eagles turnovers last week in scoring 42 points, while Carolina would appear to be a negative situation coming off a double digit home triumph. New England is clearly the better offensive team, but the Pats have dropped six straight against the number in Week 3 of the preseason and could be had. SWM Take – Lean Carolina to cover

Introduction
By now you have figured out my name is Doug and spent many a cold winter and sometimes summers in Milwaukee, WI before heading to the desert. My friends tell I used to have a sense of humor. 

I watch more sports in a year then most people do in a lifetime, but this is part of my job and somehow my wife puts up with. 

I consider myself very knowledgeable in most sports and an expert in many and share my thoughts at the various websites I work for. Any day, take a look at www.3dailywinners.com and see if you agree or disagree.
