WiseGuyAction’s Early NCAA Leans

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Every year on Selection Sunday, the only thing more entertaining than filling out a bracket and incessantly staring at it is incessantly staring at the lines which get posted at some books as early as just a few hours after the Selection Show. Needless to say, this year was no different in WiseGuyAction's humble bungalow. My ...

Farewell, Bob

Friday, February 18th, 2011

What was seemingly inevitable is now a sad reality. According to Jim Irsay via Twitter, the great Bob Sanders was just released by the Indianapolis Colts this morning. It was undeniably the only option left for the Colts, but it is still a sad day for many fans in Indianapolis. On a per game basis, there's ...

Frank-ly I’m Expecting a Playoff Berth

Friday, February 4th, 2011

Fear not Pacers fans, it's now safe to take the paper bags off your heads. Last weekend Larry Legend finally wrote Obie a "Dear John" letter blaming all their marital problems on the oft-criticized coach. Every failed operation needs a fall guy, albeit in this case O'Brien probably deserved to be sent ...

There’s a Desert Storm Brewing in the Mitten

Monday, January 24th, 2011

At the Pontiac Silverdome this Saturday one of my favorite fighters, Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley, squares off in a battle against up and comer Devon Alexander "The Great." On the line will be the WBO and WBC light welterweight titles, and perhaps more importantly, pride. Both fighters are undefeated and looking to ...

Playoff Betting: Don’t Fall Victim to Perception

Friday, January 7th, 2011

On Saturday afternoon, perhaps the worst NFL team ever to make the playoffs in the modern era will take the field against the defending Super Bowl champs.  Are the Seahawks bad?  Yes.  Utterly god awful?  Check.  Lack star power and dynamic playmakers?  Touche.  So why on earth would any sane ...

Adamek v. Arreola: Betting Analysis

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

Around 11:30 PM EST tonight on HBO, a very intriguing matchup will be popping off between Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola and Tomasz "Goral" Adamek.  All nipple jokes aside, the real nightmare for Arreola and his trainers is, and always has been, Arreola's conditioning. At the weigh-in on Friday, Arreola tipped the scales at a ...

Monday Roundball & the Merits of Naming Your Child “Lou”

Monday, March 1st, 2010

After watching the spectacular gold medal game between the U.S. and Canada, one distinct thought stood out in my mind.  Forget the fact that I just witnessed the most exciting and most dramatic hockey game I had ever seen.  Who cares that I played the under 5.5 goals on a whim and won even though I don't ...

WiseGuyAction’s Tuesday College Hoops Delights

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

After a lucrative second day at Rumors & Rants, my self-esteem has skyrocketed from below average to slightly below average.  If I was the kind of douche that wears sunglasses at night I just might consider picking up some prescription Ray Bans to wear out this weekend if I can string together a few more winning days.  ...
