Good evening everyone. I'm sorry about the late post. I got a new job this week, my birthday week at that, and I've been pretty busy. You can read more about that here at my other blog. Well, last weekend certainly wasn't the most stellar for me, as I went 0-for-the-weekend here with my football picks. My brother Pete got on the board with another win, and Joey edged above the .500 mark with a 2-1 week. Still our leader, we'll lead off with our guy from the Palace Sportsbook & Casino in Las Vegas. Here's Joey...
Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 9-8-1)
Michigan State (+7) @ Michigan
Air Force (-3) @ Colorado State
Browns (+4) vs. Broncos
Each week gets harder and harder, but I'm still a dog bettor, so that's where most of my plays this week will be.
Michigan State (+7) - Rivalry games are normally close. No one thought Michigan would be good this fast, but a great coach with good players makes for a great team. This game will come down to who has the ball last.
Air Force (-3) - Air Force knows how to jet themselves to victory by flying thru tight spaces. This sounds like my girlfriend's typing, but seriously. The Falcons running game is spectacular and CSU has trouble stopping the run.
Browns (+4) - Denver is 5-0, but it's been the defense carrying this team so far. I think Denver wins, but only by a last-second field goal.
That's it for this week's parlay card. May all your tickets win!
I was writhing in pain watching Utah not cover last Saturday, so in my effort to catch up with Joey, I'm going with three NFL bets this Sunday. I know, none of my NFL bets won last weekend either - shut up...
Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 6-12)
Dolphins/Titans (Under 43.5) - How would 44 points be scored in this game???
Cardinals/Steelers (Under 44.5) - Steelers can't pass, running takes time, and Cards play D...
Seahawks (-7) vs. Panthers - Desperate Hawks with crazy home field against young Panthers...
As we get to my brother's picks, for the umpteenth time, we have the POSSIBILITY of going 9-0 this week and we've picked 9 different bets. Live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood books in the desert, here's Pete...
Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 4-14)
Kansas State (+4) vs. Oklahoma
Notre Dame (-5) vs. USC
Bears (+3) @ Lions
We're gonna make Pete talk before the playoffs begin... ;) Just in case it isn't blatantly obvious by now, these picks are for entertainment purposes only, so wager (or don't wager) accordingly. Have a great football weekend and we'll see you soon!
