The Oracle Betting Results: Week Ending January 17, 2022

The Oracle Betting Results: Week Ending January 17, 2022

Here, we assess the betting results of The Oracle, the premiere handicapper at BeerLife Sports. We believe in sharing the details of his bets, the hits, and misses.

These recaps span Tuesday through Monday each week. Some weeks are great, some are decent, others are break-even or below par.

At BeerLife Sports our effort is to be the most, if not the only, 100% transparent sports betting information channel.

This is the breakdown and review of The Oracle’s betting results for the week of Jan. 11-17.

Overall Grade for the Week:


The Oracle fared well on his NHL and NBA wagers, going 3-0 and 3-1 respectively. His lone loss across those wagers was on a massive underdog. The Oracle finished 2-2-1 for five men’s college basketball bets with a big hit and a push on two of his largest wagers of the week. Two big misses on NFL kept this grade from being an “A.”

Big Hit

The Oracle wagered three units on Oklahoma State men’s basketball to cover as a 14-point underdog at then-No.1 Baylor on Saturday night. Dokie. The Cowboys won outright, 61-54.

Big Misses

Three-unit bets on the Patriots +5 at Buffalo and the Eagles +7.5 at Tampa Bay both lost. The Eagles fell by 16 points and the Patriots fared much worse, losing by 30.

“Unofficial Bets”

As you may know, The Oracle is now offering picks in the 50% to 60% confidence range, below his official algorithm strategy threshold of confidence, and a single unit bet. But for those who wish to take their chances on these unofficial suggestions, The Oracle recommends 0.5 unit bets for each of them. Since starting this system four weeks ago, the Unofficial Bets are down 0.5 units overall after two losses on Jan. 17. 


The Oracle began Wild Card Weekend with a sweat-bet victory on the Bengals -6 hosting the Raiders, winning 26-19. The 49ers cashed as three-point underdogs in Dallas, beating the Cowboys 23-17. The Oracle double dipped on Cardinals-Rams to cap the NFL slate, taking Cardinals +3.5 and under 49 total points. The Rams won 34-11.

The Oracle also took the Steelers +550 moneyline for two units to beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead, a bold play that was snuffed out as the Chiefs built a 35-7 lead midway through the third quarter.

The Oracle hit a clean sweep on three road favorites this week. He took the Blackhawks -110 at Columbus and the Penguins -180 at Anaheim on Tuesday night. He rounded out his trifecta with the Rangers -130 at San Jose on Thursday night.  

More NHL picks are coming, generated by The Oracle’s algorithm, as the pro-hockey season progresses.


Pro basketball treated The Oracle favorably too. On Friday night, the Magic won outright as an 11-point underdog in New Orleans, as did the Warriors +2.5 at Chicago. On Saturday, The Oracle played the 76ers +115 moneyline to win at Miami. They did, 109-98.

The only miss was the Pistons +550 moneyline hosting Phoenix on Sunday, losing 135-108.

Like the NHL, more NBA and college basketball bets from The Oracle system are on the horizon as pro hockey and basketball dominate the sports betting landscape by mid-February, with March Madness and the MLB on deck shortly thereafter.

College Basketball

The big hit of the week was Oklahoma State winning outright as a 14-point underdog at Baylor. The Oracle also cashed Missouri +4.5 on Saturday and pushed a three-unit wager on Ole Miss +9. The Rebels lost 80-71.

The Oracle also bet Ole Miss +4.5 earlier in the week at Texas A&M, losing 67-51.

The one gut punch came from Tennessee-Martin losing by 14 as a 13.5-point underdog on Wednesday against Morehead State.
