Bookie Busters started off hot and cooled down towards the back end. I really like the new system we have now with me updating plays on the articles. When football starts, it will be most useful with live and halftime wagers. For now, let's keep chasing angles.

Real Madrid has owned Atletico as of last going back to 2016/17 Champions league semis. I have a sneaky suspicion that Atletico scores a few times.

Baseball season is right around the corner and the Astros are preparing to make another run at a World Series title in 2024. This Saturday, Ronel Blanco will start the Astros first game of spring training against the Washington Nationals.
Jose Altuve made big news recently when he signed a 5-year $125 million extension with Houston, basically making him an Astro for life.
That piece of news seemed to play a role in the making of this video about Jose Altuve and the unjustified amount of hate he has received from the scandal in 2017.
This certainly isn't breaking news for any Astros fan, but it's nice to see outlets that aren't Houston branded pumping the brakes on the criticism he's received over the last several years.
iTalk Studios is a YouTube channel with 146K subscribers, and they put together this video to outline what actually took place in 2017 and highlight how Altuve took the brunt of the blowback from the scandal. Even though he wasn't a willing participant.
We found it refreshing to hear talking points that Houston fans have been saying for years. The video discusses the evidence from Signstealing.com, how winning the MVP over Aaron Judge factored into the hate, and the nonsense buzzer conspiracy that still has Yankee fans chanting “F-Altuve” even when the Astros aren't in town.
The video above is not perfect, there's no mention of the Yankees and Red Sox cheating. And even Justin Verlander catches some criticism, along with Carlos Correa, George Springer, and Alex Bregman. But overall, it's nice to see Houston fans aren't the only ones that realize Jose Altuve didn't deserve to be the face of the scandal.
