His ability to recognize “wrong”, or “off” numbers is in the NBA is uncanny. A direct quote from Mike about the NBA from a wagering perspective:
“The NBA is unlike any other sport. These guys play 2-5 times a week and the travel can be ridiculous. I know how to recognize a tired team and a motivated team. With so many games being played each night, the oddsmakers tend to make mistakes. I watch more NBA basketball than any person alive. I pay close attention to rotations, coaching, travel, and individual matchups. The NBA is an ATM machine for me.”
Over the years, Mike’s developed and learned many different ways of evaluating games. His personal philosophy varies from a lot of his peers through self analysis. He takes an inordinate amount of notes on individual games and documents hs thought process when making a play on a game. After the game, he combs through previous, and current notes and adjusts his final notes for that game/selection accordingly.
Just like in sports, it is imperative to be fundamentally sound in this profession. From statistical analysis to injury reports to matchup reports, there are many different ways to handicap a game. Mike welcomes and uses any and all information, but one of the main keys Mike believes sets him apart is his ability to recognize a great situation.
When handicapping an NBA game, he asks himself these two questions:”When is a team extra motivated? When is a team primed for a bad performance? These major keys are often unrecognized or overlooked. The ability to handicap and recognize these situations is a quality that great handicappers must possess.
