Each week we assess the betting results of The Oracle, the premiere sports handicapper at BeerLife Sports. Some weeks are great, some weeks are good, some are break-even. There may come a time when he’s down even. Cross-your fingers. Throw some salt that doesn’t happen. But if it does, we’ll review that too. We’re not the last honest sports betting information, we’re the first.
What do you call a betting week in which you go up 19 units on 62 units bet? Up 30% on your money?
The Oracle cashed his biggest unit wager of the week, betting four units on Texas college men’s basketball -28 to cover hosting San Jose State. The Longhorns won 79-45. A big spread like that is risky, but the model was confident on the cover. And now everybody celebrates.
Pro football bets went 11-8 during Week 11. The Oracle cashed on three underdogs that won outright: Football Team +3.5; Colts +7; Vikings +1.5. Ravens -1 survived after a late comeback and Dolphins -3.5 won easily at The Meadowlands. The Oracle rode the winless, and Jared Goff-less, Lions +13 to another cashed ticket. He upped his units from one to two on the Chiefs -2.5, and Steelers +6 capped the Sunday slate of winners.
The Oracle got down on four over-under bets, hitting three: Texans-Titans under 44.5 points (35); Dolphins-Jets under 44.5 points (41); Cardinals-Seahawks under 45.5 (36). His lone loss was the high-scoring affair, Packers-Vikings under 47.5 points (65). No doubt on that latter game, there was scoring in every single quarter by both teams. You don’t see that that often in the NFL.
The Oracle went heavy on “unders” for total points and hit eight of 13. He had a variety of close calls and easy wins. Close calls: SMU-Cincinnati under 65.5 points (62); Southern Florida-Tulane under 60 points (59). Easy wins: Kent State-Akron under 73 points (38); Arkansas State-Georgia State under 66 points (48); Florida-Missouri under 69 points (47); Rutgers-Penn State under 46.5 points (28).
On six different point-spread wagers, The Oracle almost went 5-1. Rice +9.5 lost by 10. That’s how gambling works. You suffer on the half point. Winning tons of money on all the other games softens that blow.

The Oracle finished 3-1 across four college hoops bets, cashing on three double-digit favorites to cover the spread. Texas covering 28 points was the biggest of those wins. The Oracle upped his units on the Longhorns from two, which he wagered on the other three games, to four units. The lone loss last week on the collegiate hardwood was Michigan falling 67-65 as an 8.5-point favorite hosting Seton Hall. (Michigan would go on later in the week to lose to Arizona — what’s up with Michigan? Are they real title contenders or not?)
Pro hockey wagers went 3-2. The Oracle needed victories in the shootout to cash both the Lightning -130 against the Flyers and the Blue Jackets -160 against the Coyotes. He added the Capitals -120 to the win column also. Losses came on a pair of moneyline underdogs: Sharks +125 at St. Louis and Wild +130 at Florida.
Expect to see more and more NHL picks coming out of The Oracle’s algorithm as the NHL season progresses. That season is barely getting started.
The Oracle concluded the Nov. 16-22 betting week by cashing two pro basketball games on Monday night: Hornets +4.5 and Pacers moneyline +110. Like NHL games, expect to see more NBA games bet from The Oracle system as the season rolls into a higher gear and as football starts to crest. By February it will be NBA and NHL dominant.
