Football (2017-18) - Week 16

Good morning everyone.  You're getting our picks really early compared to last week boys and girls.  :)  As it turns out, our group went 7-2 overall in what I thought was a very difficult NFL week to predict, and had the Patriots covered, we would have gone 8-1.  Pete should have known though, taking Tom Brady against the great Jay Cutler...  We'll begin with Joey, who went 3-0 last week and is storming back toward the .500 mark...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 20-24-1)

Three is the magic number this week...

Packers (+3) @ Panthers
Bills (-3) vs. Dolphins
Steelers (+3) vs. Patriots

May all of your parlays cash, and may Sunday be full of threes...


Pete is our leader in ties, and Joey is putting himself in the best possible position to gain on him this week...  :)  Pete is the only one of us who favors any of the college bowl bets this weekend...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 11-31-3)

Troy (-7) vs. North Texas
Arkansas State (-3) vs. Middle Tennessee State
Chiefs (+1) vs. Chargers


Okay, if you twist my arm, I'll pick some totals...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 24-20-1)

Chargers/Chiefs (Under 46) - Chargers D has been playing well, Chiefs O hasn't, and weather could play a factor in this night game...
Rams/Seahawks (Under 47.5) - The Eagles were stifled in Seattle recently, so I don't think the under is too much of a stretch here...
Steelers (+3) vs. Patriots - I'd feel better if Shazier was playing, but the Steelers do have Bell this time around...


And that's all my friends.  We're in the college bowl season, just nine days til Christmas, and the NFL playoffs will be upon us soon.  As always, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!

Football (2017-18) - Week 15

Good morning everyone.   This would be your last-second, no-frills, I'm gonna rush this entry blog post.  None of us chose to pick the Army-Navy game for our favorite bets, so that pushed my publishing deadline back to this morning.  However, this would be the weekend that I've decided to make a serious return to playing poker (late-night, after work), so I just crashed after arriving home last night.  I will come back here tomorrow  and edit in our photos and updated records from last week, but for now, here you'll see our rough-draft looking bets for today's games....  :)


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 17-24-1)

Packers (-3) @ Browns
Eagles (Pick) @ Rams
Jaguars (-2.5) vs. Seahawks



Let me say right here that I believe our group was right at or a little better than .500 combined last weekend, and that I think Pete went 1-1-1.  Let me also that we have a tough slate of games today...



Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-1-1/Overall 10-29-3)

Texans (-1.5) vs. 49ers
Cowboys (-4) @ Giants
Patriots (-11) @ Dolphins


In my return to no-limit hold 'em last night, I won 24 bucks in two hours, since you asked.  :)  Since Joey and Pete picked ZERO totals, I've thrown in a couple...



Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 21-20-1)

Raiders/Chiefs (Under 48.5) - Hard-hitting divisional game (think Steelers/Bengals)...
Eagles/Rams (Over 47) - Public has bet this down from 51 - enough said.  Go points...
Ravens (+5) @ Steelers - This always seems to be a three-point game, and Steelers are without Smith-Schuster and Shazier, for starters...


As always, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Thank you for visiting our blog as often as you do.  We receive 200-300 views per week on average, and we'll surpass 15,000 total views here before the playoffs kick off.  Enjoy your games and have a great football weekend!

Football (2017-18) - Week 14

Good morning everyone.  Our group had a winning weekend over Thanksgiving and Pete got back in the win column, so it seems that everything is back to normal.  Today should be anything but normal however as conference championship games take place across the nation.  The lion's share of our favorite bets this weekend revolve around these games, and Joey will lead things off for us...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 15-23-1)

Georgia (Pick) vs. Auburn
Wisconsin (+5.5) vs. Ohio State
49ers (+3) @ Bears


Joey and Pete haven't been running very well when they agree on bets, but they're guaranteed to go .500 in today's SEC Championship Game...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 9-28-2)

Central Florida (-7) vs. Memphis
Auburn (Pick) vs. Georgia
Clemson (-10) vs. Miami


I was looking to go 3-0 last week until I barely missed the total on the Utah State/Air Force game by more than two touchdowns, but I'll take another crack at it today...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 19-19-1)

Memphis/Central Florida (Over 81) - The public has bet it down from 85, so this looks very promising...
Fresno State/Boise State (Under 51) - Not only has the public bet this up from 49, but there's a possibility of showers with temps in the low 40's for this one...
Eagles (-5.5) @ Seahawks - "No Sherman, No Chancellor, NO DICE..."  -Jeff Spicoli-


And that's all for today my friends.  As always, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend...

Football (2017-18) - Week 13

Good morning everyone.  We had a rough week here last time around, but the gang is still in good spirits.  Joey referred to his favorite bets as "Ten Star Locks" (remember, our picks are for entertainment purposes only, as always), and when I asked Pete for his three locks, he replied, "Shrimp, Lobster, and Mudslide" (he may have been at Red Lobster at the time, according to unnamed league sources)...  We'll lead off Thanksgiving Weekend with Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 13-22-1)

UNLV (+3) @ Nevada - Rivalry for the Cannon...
Fresno State (+7) vs. Boise State - They play each other again next week...
Raiders (-4.5) vs. Broncos - Rivalry Week continues, plus Denver is going to another QB that hasn't played since preseason...


Our steak and seafood experts both agree on a pick this week, and Pete is due to start hitting some bets, based on past experience.  I'll go out on a limb right now and predict that my brother will reach double-digit wins before the season is over...  :D


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 8-26-2)

Ohio State (-12) @ Michigan
North Texas (-12.5) @ Rice
UNLV (+3) @ Nevada


I'll let you know right now that our bets are college-heavy this weekend, as Joey's Raiders pick is our only NFL wager.  Meanwhile, I took a favorite, a dog, and a total in the NCAA...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 17-18-1)

Michigan State (-13.5) @ Rutgers - Rutgers lost by 41 to the Hoosiers last week, so why not???
Stanford (+2.5) vs. Notre Dame - I'm surprised that Stanford isn't the favorite at home in this one...
Utah State/Air Force (Under 57) - I'm hoping for lots of ground game and some nasty weather in this one...


And that's a wrap my friends.  Enjoy the leftovers and have a great football weekend!

Football (2017-18) - Week 12

Good morning..., ummm, afternoon everyone.  :)  Just a little late today, so I'll speed right along...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 13-19-1)

Rutgers (+11.5) @ Indiana
Wyoming (+2.5) vs. Fresno State
Rams (+2.5) @ Vikings


I see here that Joey had a nice 2-1 mark last week.   And off we go...  :)


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 8-23-2)

Iowa (-6) vs. Purdue
Saints (-8) vs. Redskins
Eagles/Cowboys (Over 48)


Fastest I've ever typed up a blog entry here...  ;)


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 15-17-1)

Texas State (+27) @ Arkansas State - The Bobcats haven't tossed in the towel yet, and may very well stay within four touchdowns here...
Patriots (-7) vs. Raiders - New England travels to Mexico to face a Raiders team that hasn't looked quite right...
Cowboys (+6) vs. Eagles - Just a hunch.  Division-leading Eagles will have a bunch of rowdy Texans waiting for them down in Arlington...


And that's it.  As always, our picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Late night last night, and work tonight, so have a great football weekend everyone!

Football (2017-18) - Week 11

Good morning everyone.  Just a standard week here last time around as we went a collective 2-5-2.  I'm fairly certain we've never had that record as a group before.  Joey said that his picks are guaranteed or they're free next time, so there's that...  :)  I guess that this is a good time to remind you that our picks are for entertainment purposes only.  It's been a tough season to win so far, but we're not afraid.  Here's Joey to lead things off...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-1-1/Overall 11-18-1)

Wake Forest (+1) @ Syracuse
Notre Dame (-3) @ Miami
49ers (+2.5) vs. Giants


We're not gonna take a moment to mention here that Joey's alma mater strolled into San Marcos and beat my alma mater last week.  Not gonna mention it...  :)  Joey and Pete agree on one of their favorite bets of the week, and another highly-respected friend of mine agrees with both of them...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 8-20-2)

Michigan State (+17) @ Ohio State
Alabama (-13.5) @ Mississippi State
Notre Dame (-3) @ Miami


I was considering picking the Irish, but if I jump on the bandwagon, the bet is doomed for sure...  No problem, since there were one or two other bets to choose from...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-2-1/Overall 14-15-1)

LSU (-17) vs. Arkansas - My alma mater (Texas State) wins by twenty at Coastal Carolina, then Coastal loses by only one at Arkansas, and now the Razorbacks visit Baton Rouge.  Geaux Tigers...
Texas (-33.5) vs. Kansas - I don't normally lay so many points, but the Longhorns LOST in Lawrence last year.  They haven't forgotten...
Cowboys/Falcons (Over 48.5) - This game is indoors and the quarterbacks can throw...

And that's all folks.  Have a great football weekend everyone!

Football (2017-18) - Week 10

Good morning everyone.  We went 4-5 overall last week, and 6-3 if the Steelers and Lions don't decide to have a field-goal kicking contest (Pete and I both had the over).  No problem, we're back at it again this week.  I guess that we'll start things off with our New Mexico State graduate...  :)


Three picks.  Okay, I've gotta stay in college as the big games are on this week (not that I'm picking them, but...)

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 10-17)

Illinois (+14) @ Purdue
New Mexico State (-10) @ Texas State
Oklahoma (+1.5) @ Oklahoma State

Come by the all new Palace Station!


I can't believe that Joey is picking his alma mater against my alma mater...  The nerve...  :)  I'll say a little about the Bobcats later in my picks.  Right now we'll get to my brother's bets in what is a college-filled Week 10 edition of our favorites...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 7-18-2)

Maryland (-3) @ Rutgers
Notre Dame (-14.5) vs. Wake Forest
California (-7) vs. Oregon State


Yep, I hope you're catching this today (if you like following along at home), because 8 of our 9 bets are of the college variety this time around...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 14-13)

Arkansas (-23.5) vs. Coastal Carolina - My alma mater won by 20 at Coastal Carolina last week, and the Razorbacks are only 23.5-point favorites at home against the same team?  Was Coastal looking ahead?  Is Arkansas looking ahead?  Maybe, but c'mon...
Oregon/Washington (Over 52.5) - My attention kept getting drawn to this total.  It's still a Pac-12 game, right???
Raiders (-3) @ Dolphins - The Dolphins just traded away their best running back.  The Raiders are in dire straits if they can't cover here...


And that's all folks.  Remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only (no matter how big I talk), and have a great football weekend!
