The NBA Guru’s down season was due to bad luck on games decided in overtime (1-6) and on close games (19-24 on games decided by less than 2 points and 10-13 on games decided by 2 or 2 ½ points), but despite that negative variance he still managed to have a profitable season.
NBA Guru 2012-13 Best Bets 148-115-2 for +47.7 Stars
The NBA Guru was 148-115-2 on his Best Bets for the 2012-13 season (38-31 on Sides, 81-63-1 on totals, 18-13 on 1st half sides, and 11-8-1 on 1st half totals) and 315-243-4 on a Star Basis (19-13 on 3-Stars and 129-102-2 on 2-Star Best Bets) for +47.7 Stars at -110 odds.
The NBA Guru had a very strong first season at Dr. Bob Sports, netting a profit of 47.7 Stars. It was not fluke as his record on close games was pretty even (12-12 on games decided by less than 2 points and 7-6 on games decided by 2 or 2 ½ points) and he was just 1-3 on games decided in overtime.
NBA Guru 2011-12 and 2012-13 Seasons
In 2 seasons prior to joining Dr. Bob Sports the NBA Guru had a record of 420-352-4 (54.4%) record on all NBA plays rated 2-Stars or higher, which is all he has released to his clients at Dr. Bob Sports (he formerly had 1-Star plays). Part of that record includes 2nd half plays and quarter plays, which are only 110-98-7, and are not part of his service with Dr. Bob Sports. That is certainly not a bad record but it is not good enough to justify the inconvenience that goes along with playing in game lines. So, in game bets are not part of his service at Dr. Bob Sports. The NBA Guru has been particularly good at full game and first half plays (sides and totals), which are now 957-786-25 (55%) winners the last 7 seasons, and those are the plays being offered with this service at Dr. Bob Sports.
