Good afternoon everyone. Well, one week is already in the books - the football season is officially underway. None of our experts went undefeated last week, but no one lost all three games either. We're back again today to take a crack at this weekend's games. As always, these picks are for entertainment purposes only and are by no means guarantees. Since I'm the overall leader at this point (and it may be the only time this season), I'll lead off this week... :D
Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Season 2-1)
BYU (+2.5) vs. Boise State - Surprised that the Cougars are getting points at home...
Alabama (-35) vs. Middle Tennessee State - I just need Bama to keep their foot on the gas pedal...
Cowboys (-6) vs. Giants - Lots of talent in Big D for this primetime opener...
Since Pete and Joey both had the same record last week and we led off with Joey, we'll put Pete in the second slot this week. Coming to you live from the Paris, Bally's, and Planet Hollywood sportsbooks in Las Vegas, here's Pete...
Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Season 1-2)
Western Michigan (-4) @ Georgia Southern
Air Force (-6) vs. San Jose State
Eagles (-3) @ Falcons
Pete seems to have opinions on all sorts of Falcons this weekend... :) And now running the anchor leg this week, coming live to you from the Palace Station sportsbook in Las Vegas, here's Joey...
Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Season 1-2)
Michigan State (-3) vs. Oregon
Titans (+3) @ Buccaneers
Giants (+6) @ Cowboys
Michigan State (-3) - Best team in the Big Ten. They will win the whole thing if they stay on track. Spartans win 35-10.
Titans (+3) - It's the battle of Heisman candidates. One guy has looked good, the other has been a deer in headlights. Tennessee wins outright 27-17.
Giants (+6) - This is a two-fold play. First, it's a play against the general public. Second, it's the late game just in case I need to lay off to make money no matter what happens.
Good luck and may all your tickets cash!
And those are our bets for this weekend. Joey went up against my brother in one bet last week, and he opposes me on another this week. Well, I hope that our group goes 8-1 for the weekend... :) Have a great football weekend and we'll see you next week!
