#39 - Hot streaks/cold streaks: How long do they last?

And, how do you use the info in your handicapping?

We can see in the weekly stats how a player can get blazing hot or ice-cold for a period of time. But, if it happens during a Thursday-to-Thursday spread, it won't necessarily show in the stats.

My own handicapping methods weight recent info much more heavily in the calculations, so a hot or cold player's rating will change quickly, but how do YOU react? Do you notice? How much of the most recent info do you include in your handicapping mix?

If a guy was 1 for 34 last week, do you bet like it's going to continue, or do you think he's "due"?
