    Default Daily betting advice

    So everyday, me and two friends place a bet on Bet365.com. We each bet $1/day and we get to pick whatever we want for the daily pick. That could mean a straight up winner, over/unders/ + or - 1.5 for score, or even individual player picks. Obviously with only a $1 bet, we are doing it more for the enjoyment but also the competition amongst ourselves. Some weeks we go winless, some weeks we win a few nights.

    Lately, I've been in a dirty slump where I havent won a single pick all week long and it's really frustrating me. Leafs losing last night, Vegas losing to Anaheim the other night, games like that are some of my bad picks this week (although you'd think they should be good, smart picks).

    I am curious if anyone here does daily picks like this and if so, where are you going to on the web for daily pick advice? Is there a particular website you rely on more for pick advice? I've been using winnersandwhiners.com from time to time and also use pickswise.com as a resourse but both have been coming up dry for me lately as far as "best picks" go.

    I could just go on my gut feeling but I tend to look for lineup advice going into the games before making my pick. Things like who's starting, injuries I might not have known about, etc.

    Anyone got anything they use and want to share? I have been getting my nose rubbed into it lately by my buddies because of my crap streak that is going on and I'd like to turn it around. It doesnt have to be the NHL. We can bet on anything that bet365 offers (NBA, MLB, college sports, etc). I just tend to stick to the NHL because that's the sport I follow the closest in the winter.

    After years of randomly betting on WAY too many parlays, I took a new approach last fall. Parlays are nice if you win, but they're not a long term recipe for success.

    I follow 2 "prop specific" guys who mostly post daily NBA and NFL props. They post them on Twitter but then the specific bets are on the Action Network app (it's free). The one guy is up 21 units on the NBA season so far so I have just been following him. They both go through minor ups and downs but this year I've been following @PropBetGuy for NFL props and @PropBomb for NBA props.

    I don't know much about NBA but I wasn't doing well betting on the sports I do know about so this has worked for me lately. Does that make me a degenerate? LOL I'm not sure. But I've been much more successful following these guys and winning small amounts.

    The only thing here is they often get on lines early and if you don't have notifications on you may miss the exact line they're posting about.

    Thanks. I've done the odd props at varying times but not often. I'll have to check those ones out and see if I can find any others on twitter.

    There is a hockey one called @WallaBets.

    He posts A LOT though. And they're mostly SOG props which I don't love. But he's up 32.5 units on the season

    The Iceman (Elio Imbornone) plays Over/Unders (always takes the overs) and has a pretty good track record. He doesn't do one daily, but when he does one its usually a winner.

    Daily betting advice. Take 9ers to win + Jags with a teaser spread or a lower Over for the LAC/Jac game. I think the night game will be close and pretty high scoring.

    I ended up going with McDavid over 3.5 sog (which was a winner for me) but if I had stuck with the over 7 in the Oilers game, I would have been fine too.
