Well instead of creating threads over and over to share my tickets with y'all, Ive decided to create this thread which I will update with all my tickets whenever I play,

consider it a little in-game chat/ticket thread

feel free to post suggestions for picks on ANY games, any little tid bit of info that may help help swing my pick into the money

if your wondering why its called Show's toonie tricks it is because all my tickets are usually just a toonie, I dont see the point in throwing away anymore than a toonie on wrong picks, and if I happen to be right, I win much more than my original toonie

stay tuned for today's toonie trick

I'm with you on the 'Nucks (of course), the tie in the football game seems like the wise choice for value, and I hope (for your sake) that the Raptors suck at home again.

Good luck

well those picks were almost dead on last night, the knicks won by 6 to blow the tie by a point....

heres my thoughts tonight

Dallas-LA Tie (6.60)
Blackhawks VTH (1.45)
Knicks VTH (4.00)

2 to win 77

might add a game to it

lol, you said you might add a game, instead you took a game away.  I understand your thought process.  If you had played the three above, the Chicago pick would have been the only loser and you'd be kicking yourself.

I like your picks Show.  Nobody around here has any faith in the Raptors tonight.  I was leaning towards a Tie...but I stayed away.

The whole ticket looks like a winner to me if the Raptors play crappy.

Looks good, Show.  McGahee should be safe.  Cruz in the man in NY right now.  I don't know if Houston will score any TDs today.  Torrey Smith is the big play guy in Baltimore, he could catch a couple of long ones...hopefully he doesn't get into the end zone.
