Good evening everyone. Sorry about the later post tonight. I had errands to do today, but now I've got the Memphis/South Florida game on ESPN 2 and I'm ready to type. Joey continued his winning ways last week by going 2-1, and since he's still our overall leader for the season, we'll lead off with him again. Coming to you live from the Palace Station Sportsbook & Casino in Las Vegas, here's Joey...
Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 6-5-1)
Ohio (-3) @ Akron
Minnesota (+5) @ Northwestern
Giants (+6) @ Bills
2-1 last week - not bad, but we will still strive for perfection this week.
Ohio (-3) - Even on the road, Ohio is the better team.
Minnesota (+5) - Sometimes records are misleading. The Gophers are 3-1, but ran out of gas against TCU and lost by 6. Northwestern is 4-0, but has only scored 3 offensive touchdowns. I'm going with the road dog.
Giants (+6) - Giants woke up last week. Let's see if they can keep the mojo going.
That's it for this week's parlay card. May all your tickets cash!
And now it's my turn. I went 1-2 last week, and I feel lucky to have done that. My losses weren't even close last week, and that's unusual for me. I picked the over in the Steelers/Rams game, and they combined for 12 points. I took the under in the Falcons/Cowboys contest, and they put up 67. OUCH... Well, there's always next week, and next week is here...
Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 5-7)
Texas/TCU (Under 73.5) - The Horns aren't involved in many 73+ point games...
Raiders (-3) @ Bears - The Bears have to overcome a lot against upstart Raiders...
Rams/Cardinals (Under 43) - Both squads can play a little defense...
And now my brother is up to bat. Pete managed to go 0-3 last week, but he missed one total by just 2 1/2 points, and he also had the Cowboys plus 1 1/2 points hosting Atlanta. Dallas unfathomably only ran the ball for 5 times in the second half after hurting the Falcons with Randle in the first half last Sunday. He's stepping back up to the plate now, so picking live from the Bally's, Paris, or Planet Hollywood Sportsbook in Las Vegas, here's Pete...
Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 2-10)
West Virginia/Oklahoma (Over 59)
Nevada (-6.5) vs. UNLV
Chargers (-7.5) vs. Cleveland
And those are our best bets for this weekend. We give you 9 completely different picks, so hopefully we'll collectively finish 9-0 for the weekend. Again, these picks are for entertainment purposes only, as always. Have a great football weekend and we'll see you next week!
