Football Thursday (2015 - Week 4)

Good afternoon everyone.  It was a rough football weekend for those of us here at the Parlay Card a week ago.  Joey, Pete, and myself went a collective 2-7 on our football bets here last week.  I would venture to wager that you won't see a worse combined record from us for the rest of the season.  Due to personal obligations that I have tomorrow and Saturday, I wanted to get our bets for this weekend published today, and Joey and Pete were kind enough to expedite their selections for me.  Since Joey is still our overall leader, he will again lead things off for us.  Live from the Palace Station Sportsbook & Casino iu Las Vegas, here's Joey...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Season 4-4-1)

Navy (-7) @ Connecticut
Raiders (+3.5) @ Browns
Bears (+15) @ Seahawks

Discipline is the key to winning at sports betting.  This week there are lots of games to choose from, so let's see if we can narrow it down to three.

Navy (-7) - The Midshipmen run the ball better than anyone else as QB Keenan Reynolds owns the NCAA record of 70 TD's.
Raiders (+3.5) - QB Derek Carr woke the offense up last week.  The defense is still suspect, but Cleveland has neither.  Johnny Fooseball is back on the bench.
Bears (+15) - The Bears are banged up on offense and defense right now.  Seattle is 0-2 and hungry for a win.  It's those factors that the general public thinks will make this game a blowout, but remember, this is the NFL!!!

Good luck and may all your tickets cash!

And now I'm up.  I felt strongly about LSU (-6.5) vs. Auburn after seeing Jacksonville State go toe-to-toe with Auburn the week before, but that was the game that I omitted from my three best bets. Unfortunately for me, Missouri didn't come close to covering (-21) vs. U. Conn, and the Rams were a no-show at Washington.  SO..., in spite of my Steelers pick coming through here and propelling me to first in Lucki Duck's contest, I went 1-2 for the second straight week.  Let's see if we can turn that around...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Season 4-5)

Texas State/Houston (Over 71.5) - Bobcat games have had video game scores this season...
Steelers/Rams (Over 47.5) - Pittsburgh offense and lack of defense means another track meet...
Falcons/Cowboys (Under 45) - Romo is out and Dallas has solid D - where do points come from?

Now it's my brother's turn, and he's still itching for his first winning week of the season.  As he was the first person to submit his selections today, even before I had a chance to tell him that I wanted his bets a day early, I suspect that he's ready for the weekend to kick off.  Live from the Bally's, Paris, and/or Planet Hollywood Sportbooks in Las Vegas, here's Pete...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Season 2-7)

Illinois (-6) vs. Middle Tennessee State University
Oklahoma State/Texas (Over 59.5)
Cowboys (+1.5) vs. Falcons

As always, these picks of ours are for entertainment purposes only (a fact that should be clearly evident after last week)...  No guarantees here, but we hope that you have a great football weekend and we'll see you again next Friday!
