Football Friday (2015 - Week 8)

Good evening everyone.  I worked today and my Vegas peeps are taking their sweet time getting their picks to me, so this is coming to you early evening on the east coast.  Joey climbed another game above .500 last week, so we'll let him lead off again this week (once I get his picks)...  ;) Coming live to you from the Palace Station Sportsbook & Casino, here's Joey...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 11-9-1)

Duke (+3) @ Virginia Tech
Utah (+4) @ USC
Raiders/Chargers (Over 47)

The weeks seem to be flying by.  It's already Week 7 of the NFL season.  Wow.  I'm not a totals guy, but I'll use one this week...

Duke (+3) - The Blue Devils are my choice to win the ACC.  Their offense is not where it should be, but I think they will have enough to win this game.
Utah (+4) - The Utes are getting no respect.  They are in the Top 5 in all of the polls, yet they are getting points in this game, so I'll take the points and the money.
Raiders/Chargers (Over 47) - There is not much defense with these two teams and both offenses have looked good.  Philip Rivers threw for over 500 yards last week.

That's it for this week.  Good luck and may all your tickets cash!

And since my brother outperformed me last week, we'll let him bat second this week.  Coming to you live from the Paris, Bally's, and Planet Hollywood books in Vegas, here's Pete...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-1-1/Overall 5-15-1)

Toledo (-14) @ Massachusetts
Western Michigan (-25) vs. Miami (Ohio)
Cowboys (+3.5) @ Giants

It's becoming obvious to me that once you get a job in a sportsbook, you start messing with the smaller schools more in your wagers...  Speaking of that, I am going to include my Alma Mater (Texas State) in my picks for this weekend, but only because I'm betting on the rain from the hurricane to keep the score lower...

Coach' Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 7-14)

South Alabama/Texas State (Under 65.5) - Thinking the rain in San Marcos keeps this score down...
Iowa State/Baylor (Under 76) - Betting on the rain in Waco also...
Rams (-6.5) vs. Browns - The Rams at home will be tough to beat in this one...

And that's it for this week.  On Joey's Utah pick, when I glanced over the lines a while ago, I seriously thought that the Utes were favored by 4 - no respect indeed.  As always, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Have a great football weekend and we'll see you next week!
