Like the old EF Hutton commercials….when Hakeem has a 4% NBA play…people listen!
Hakeem has NEVER released a 5% BB play at WagerTalk so a 4% play is as STRONG as he has released!
@SkeeProfit has is very selective with 4% NBA total plays hitting 69% of his last 13 releases while going 15-6-1 (71%) his last 20 BB post-season plays! Tuesday night he has a spot backed by both 12-1 and 10-1 situations to get us paid for $2
