I have come to terms with the fact that life is going to be very different for the next couple months. At first, it felt like life was over but now that I have reached day 3, I feel like we are going to come out of the other side of this thing. Sure we are all going to have PTSD from no March Madness, but I am pretty confident that we will all recover in our own time. Do you really think you are still going to be traumatized when we are getting hammered betting the NBA playoffs in July? I don’t. I think it’s going to feel more like a celebration than anything. We just have to wait this thing out.

The damage is already done. It’s not like this virus can just keep taking sports from us because we don’t have that many left. It’s literally just Mexican Soccer and MMA at this point. (I think) I can tell you this, Coronavirus is going to learn something very fast, staying on top is harder than getting there. Sure you took everything sports fans hold sacred, but can you keep it? No, the answer is no. The NHL and the NBA will be back and they should push into July which means we won’t have to wait long after those seasons are over to get the NFL going again. We just have to get through the next 45-60 days in my estimation. I can do it and I know you can too.

One thing that I am hoping will ease the pain of this is Mexican soccer. Tonight there are four games and I am betting three of them. Do I know anything about Mexican soccer? No, but who cares? Desperate times call for desperate bets. Here are mine.

9 PM

Leon host Pumas tonight at Estadio Leon in Leon de los Aldamas. 5Dimes has posted team totals for these games and that is all I needed. I don’t know if they always do but I am assuming they don’t. Leon’s team total is 1.5 and I think they score twice in this game. Why not? It’s only two goals. Pumas has given up at least two goals in their last four matches and four of their last five road matches. Leon has scored at least two goals in each of their last four home matches so their block is hot. Let’s go goals!

9 PM

Two at the same time for us tonight as Tigres hosts FC Juarez at the Estadio Universitario in San Nicholas de los Garza. My best guess is it rains goals. Tigres may not be much of a road team but they show up for their home fans. They dropped three burgers in their last two home games and scored at least two goals in four of their last five home games. Juarez just give up four goals last time out and they gave up two when they played this same Tigres team back in November. I am taking the over 2.5 for the game as well as the Tigres TTO 2 at +138. This is either going to be really good or really bad.

11 PM

My favorite bet of the night is the Guadalajara/Monterrey game at Estadio Akron in Guadalajara. Guadalajara comes into this one winners of their last three games and all we need them to do is score one time to ensure we don’t lose. In their last seven games, they have only failed to score one time and that was a road game. The last time they failed to score at home was in October so I think the worst thing that can happen is we push.

  • Chivas Guadalajara TTO 1 (-155)
  • Juarez/Tigres Over 2.5 (-106)

Every straight bet I make is to win 1% of my bankroll
