Surprised he got the Giants, wonder if he's finally learning something?

Actually scanning that list, probably not, although there's certainly something new going on in his strategy, he seems to be going further than just picking teams he's heard of.

A buy of Miami penalty yards for 0.5pts at 45, make-up 40. (Loss 2.5pts).
Buy Miami performance for 2 points at 51. Make-up zero. (Loss 102pts. Good God).

Monday night football selection was

Miami outright @evens for 3pts

-3.00pts

Total for season = -8.26pts

Getting worse. Really cant understand some of his picks. He's picking 7 or 8 games a week to go at which is far far too many.

To be fair, point proven, the referee's stopped the fight. This isn't the forum, but would be interesting if someone did the same for the rest of them (it's unfair to single one out).

There is a similar thread on the football forum (called 'Racing Post thread') where someone is keeping an eye on the weekend picks.
Basically those tipsters we suspected to be rubbish, are rubbish. They still get paid a salary though.

Going to keep tracking for a few more weeks yet, early in the season when form is scratchy so would be unfair to deny Milham a chance to get the winners on the board. I actually enjoy his pieces in the post on sundays and he probably knows his stuff enough to find some winners. Where he is seriously handicapped though is by being 'forced' into picking 6 or 7 bets every week-i dont think many people could turn a profit having to do this.

correct jimmy diamond. Mr Milham does not have the luxury (like us) of saying "no bet" this week if he isn`t strong on anything, as I said earlier in the thread, he is forced to make a pick whether he has a strong opinion or not, especially on the tv games. Nobody on here could do any better given the circumstances, i.e. forced picks, copy submitted 48 hours before kick off, line changes, etc, etc.

*Actually that's not fair, I do have the luxury of "no bet" , however if you gave me 50% strike rate for the no bet weeks, I'd still be up.

Milham's picks are actually bad picks for the most part, he's unlucky to be so far down, but he'll struggle to hit 50% because his picks are THAT poor in general.

That said, now I've read some of his stuff (as he writes for multiple places and tips different stuff at each one) I believe he knows more about the sport than I do. He just doesn't have the kind of mind that converts it into gambling.

Meanwhile a proper tipster tipped

pitts 7pts @ 1.74
miami/ jets overs 10 pts @ 2.2
saints/colts double 5pts @ 2.24
cowboys 4pts @ 2.25
chiefs 4pts @ 2.3

for a 22.38 pt profit

see what this superb tipster tips up next week at WWW.KJBETTING.CO.UK

seen as you're probably not going to post a losing week i will.

6pt acca lost (Colts lost)
5.5 pts Rams @ evens win
2.5 pts Bears & 3pts Bears +4 both lost

6pt loss.

Fair comment Lori. I`ve got a friend who knows more about the game than I`ll ever know. Can name every player and position in every team squad, offense, defense, special teams, etc. including full coaching staff. And he can quote every score and give precise details of every match played way back. But, in all honesty, he`s the lousiest gambler on the NFL I`ve ever seen!! As you say about Mr Milham, "He just doesn't have the kind of mind that converts it into gambling".

So as not to kick a man when he's down, there were 4 recommended bets last night on the Jacksonville game (2 spreads, 2 fixed odds), 4 losers, and I'll leave it at that.

Cant for the life of me think why he invested 4pts in san diego. Thats a horible tip.

Im now 100% convinced of what I've suggested previously.

I found a writeup on the TEN/JAX game which basically said that both teams like to run the ball a lot, and then he tipped over 44.5

There's nothing wrong with the writeup and then he reaches the wrong conclusion from the facts he presented in the article!

Methinks he doesn't understand totals at all.

*or home advantage.

The SD pick is dire as you already mentioned. Oddly the Jax pick is entirely acceptable, until the totals part.

Exactly the point i made that got me banned....the guy writes one thing in his column, and then tips up the opposite thing at the end! 

Either covering his bases, or should be arrested for impersonating a tipster.

I take NO pleasure in others' misfortunes (although don't get me started on Tony Cascarino on the football forum!). Just stating the facts...
Simon Milham's R Post spread recommendations today -
Buy Dallas 'supremacy plus', 2 pts at 12. (10 points for the winning team, plus 1 point per point won by). CAN MAKE UP AS A NEGATIVE FIGURE. :cry:]CryCry
Buy Washington 'win index', 1 pt at 34. (25 points for a win, plus 1 point for every point scored).

Hows he been doing?

A quick look at his blog at the other place shows his two tips last week:

Seattle/Saints Under 45.5 (lol)
Indy -2.5

Guarantees in life; death, taxes, and milham losers.

knowing who coaches who and who won 1974 super bowl mean nothing - if you want to gamble you need to understand the game and how match ups work

Lol...just checked the nfl blog @ the daq.  Looks like hes taken a shot at this forum (and ace high from what i gather).  Hes totally seen his ar$e!  Havent seen someone this rattled since apollo creed took one on the chin against Ivan Drago.

Im more than happy to have a tipping compeition against you next season Si.  Ill be entering the las vegas hilton super contest, why dont you get involved....or are you worried that you will bat below .500?

He tipped up Atlanta outright @ 40's (ugh), and Atlanta win index @ 34 yesterday. 

It made up as a -32 point loser.

Gamblers are a fickle lot. You can insult their wifes, sons, daughters and other family members or call them adulterers, crooks, thieves and many other insulting names and they won`t bat an eyelid, but say that they are a lousy gambler and all hell will let loose. They all like to think they are the best. Braggards the lot of them.
