ECKS & BACON….feel the sizzle!!!

Welcome to Ecks & Bacon for April 23, 2014

Sports Betting News

The NBA playoffs got underway this past weekend with Game 1 of the conference quarterfinals....

Las Vegas -

The votes on Tianna Gregory have been overwhelming, so we're gonna leave this Nevada native up for one more day before we close up shop. Still the same question. Which shot do you prefer? I was gonna go bottom left corner, but after studying real close, REAL close, gotta rock the middle shot. Think it was the TATOO that put me over the edge. Had a day to translate the tatoo, and my guy thinks it says, "LOVE ECKS & BACON!" Click and find your fav shot!

Bouncing back on to the NBA hardwood again tonight, and looking at another three team 6-point teaser. Of course I realize (and thanks to a number of readers that have told me) that teasers are not the best percentage plays on the board, but man, they sure are FUN. So, we'll start out in Miami and drop the Heat from -10 to -4 points over the Bobcats. Move to San Antonio, and take the Spurs from -8 to -2 points over the Mavericks. Stay in Texas, jump over to Houston, and drop the Rockets from -6 to a pick'em against the Blazers. Was gonna look at the UEFA Champions League semi-final today with Real Madrid hosting Bayern Munich, but with the GREAT Cristiano Ronaldo possibly not 100%, or fit as they say in soccer, we'll root for Real, but hold off on a wager.

Wonderful day chock full of action across the globe, and, a plus for the bank. Doesn't get any better. Started out in Spain, where Atletico Madrid played to a 0-0 draw against Chelsea, and it cost me $55 bones. Flew to Chicago where the Cubs mauled the D'backs 9-2, and picked up half a Benj. Then it was a sweet three team 6-point teaser on the NBA hardwood. The Pacers kicked it off with a breezy 101-85 win over the Hawks. The Nets covered as an adjusted +10.5 point dog against the Raptors in a 100-95 loss. And the Wizards finished up in OT, covering as an +11.5 point dog on the teaser board with a 101-99 victory. Picked up $60 bones for the three teamer, and after adding a pair of nickels to the bank, and pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$1980 is the current figure.

The 'if you need it' category dropped a notch when the Brewers lost to the Padres 2-1. That put the record at 8-6 heading into tonight's play on the Blackhawks.
