Jerry Bo's Bookie Busters: Forgive me, bookies

Yes. These picks are on fire. Matthew Lewis/Getty Images

I was taught "Don't ask questions, ask for forgiveness," so sportsbooks and bookies around the world; forgive me. The previous edition of the Bookie Busters Money Machine read...

On fire!!! A +23 Unit run in 2 days. Welcome to the Machine.

That's all that can be said for the run we are on the past two days. Max plays hitting at over 80 percent, and regular plays are also hot.

Firenado - is said to be similar in appearance to a tornado made out of fire, and that is what we've been as of late. Dangerous results.

Add to that +23 2-day run, and we went 15-4 in a 3-day span of MAX plays, once again giving the books a headache. If played correctly, followers could have enjoyed about a + 45 unit run last week. Never risking more than 5U on a play.

Now we say if, and there's an emphasis on that. I've received quite a bit of private messages asking about bankroll management and people telling me they're disappointed in their results in a way as they feel they weren't maximizing their returns. Some were caught up in betting too much into early games and didn't have enough to cash throughout the day. Others found themselves investing in MLB games between matches conclusively tying up their cash and prohibiting them to bet correctly.

Getting the side right is only part of the journey; know your plan and execute it, don't get sidetracked and tied to other games causing you to miss the moment to capitalize.

The Houston Rockets are in the midst of a rebuild. Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr are studs. KPJ just signed a four-year extension with the team. Other guys like Jabari Smith Jr, Kenyon Martin Jr, Alperen Sengun, Josh Christopher, Tari Eason, and Jae'Sean Tate are really good pieces to surround Green and KPJ with. The only issue with this group: they're REALLY young! Tate is the elder statesman at 27 of the young nucleus. Most are barely old enough to buy a drink. Some still aren't old enough! They're a bunch of green bananas waiting to turn yellow to slightly brown and be ripe enough for consumption.

We need to give it time. Just like bananas, they take time to ripen. Coach Stephen Silas is known for developing young players. His most prized student is the star player for that team in South Oklahoma up 45. Number 77 for that team credited Silas with helping him realize his All-Pro potential while Silas was a part of the coaching staff there. To a man, all his former players credit him with being a positive influence on their careers. So why are fans in a rush to get rid of him?

When you look at the Rockets' record over the last few years, it's gross. Sure, they've been a lottery team the last couple of seasons, but that was by design. As part of the Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook trades, they gave away pick swap rights. Had they not been that bad, they wouldn't have been able to draft Green or Smith Jr. Those two guys are building blocks for the future, along with KPJ. Giving those picks away would've put this team further down the totem pole of developing themselves into a contender. Losing pays off when you can hit on high lottery picks.

If you give a chef dirt, bread, ham, molded cheese, and spoiled mayo, can you expect anything else but a nasty ham sandwich? How about if the chef was given a steak that is almost rotten, potatoes with root growth, and spoiled butter? Could you expect a better meal than the sandwich? Yes! However, that meal may still cause a stomachache. Now, give said chef a full complement of gourmet groceries and guess what you'll get?

This is why I say let Silas cook. He's the perfect coach for this group of kids. He can teach them all the fundamentals of the game at this level and help them grow into their full potential. If there's a change to be made on the sidelines, move Silas into a front office role, but DO NOT get rid of him! Guys like him are too valuable. Why do you think Mark Cuban hated losing him, but knew he couldn't retain him because he had a head coach already? Cuban knew what he had in Silas and what Silas did for Luka Doncic. He can do something similar for the Rockets if given the time to work his magic.

Should Tilman Fertita find the need to move on, I'd look for a more experienced coach who can guide them from bottom of the playoff ladder into top four in the West and real contenders. For now, Silas is the head chef. Continue giving him the groceries he needs, and he'll continue giving these kids the lessons they need to develop. Changing the coach now could stunt their growth. Let him cook!
