Power of Brentpays at window

No Iverson, no Big Dog, no problem.

Philadelphia was an 81/2-point home dog Sunday for an NBA national TV game with Minnesota, one of the league’s top teams. Of course, Philly not only covers, but wins the game outright. How is this possible? Well, it’s the NBA, but we’ll vote for the Brent factor.

This is hard to compute, but it just seems every sporting event Musburger does seems to boost the dog. I recommended the Sixers on our website, sat at home and watched in disbelief at how Brent came through again.

...Consider the New York Rangers, our nominee for the NHL’s Twilight Zone. The Broadway Blues, with the biggest payroll outside of Detroit, have not won back to back games since mid December.

...I took a Kentucky Derby futures bet on Limehouse at 125-1. Wonder what Brent thinks of that.
