Football Friday (2015 - Week 13)

Good morning everyone.  Maybe one of these days I'll actually do my 'Football Friday' post on a Friday.  We went 5-4 here last week, so it certainly wasn't our worst showing.  Heck, let's be honest, we're THRILLED TO DEATH that we had a winning record...  ;)  Joey went 2-1 last week, and he'll lead things off for us today.  Live from the Palace Station Sportsbook & Casino, here's Joey...






Joey's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 2-1/Overall 17-18-1)

Georgia (-4) vs. Georgia Tech
Oklahoma State (+7.5) vs. Oklahoma
Giants (-2.5) @ Redskins

I hope that everyone is stuffed full of turkey.  Now it's time for the dessert.  I loved Iowa since I think that they'll be in the playoff, but I had to pass since they played on Friday.  Here are my three next best bets...

Georgia (-4) - The Dawgs are bigger, faster, and stronger.  The only question is will their head coach be there after today's game...
Oklahoma State (+7.5) - Rivalries are my game.  In any rivalry game, I want the home dog...
Giants (-2.5) - G-Men have a chance to take a two-game lead in the NFC East.  They have not played the greatest all year, but this game provides a lot of motivation.

Happy Turkey Day Weekend and may all your tickets cash!


And while we're talking about Turkey Day, I hope that all of you had a Happy Thanksgiving.  Speaking of turkeys, my brother, who has yet to give any commentary with his bets, was quick to criticize the NCAA on Facebook earlier in the week after the most recent FBS rankings came out.  It is interesting that a one-loss Oklahoma team that got beat by Texas is ahead of a one-loss Notre Dame squad that pummeled the Longhorns.  Nice catch Pete.  Oh, and I hope that you had a great birthday Pete!  Now coming to you live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood sportsbooks, here's Pete...




Pete's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 1-2/Overall 12-23-1)

Indiana (-7) @ Purdue
North Carolina (-4) @ North Carolina State
Buccaneers (+3) @ Colts


If Pete doesn't start talking to y'all, I think that I just keep stealing quotes from his Facebook page...  ;)  Okay, I almost managed to go 3-0 last week, but then the Bengals and Cardinals decided to score a bunch of points and make Joey look good instead.  Coming to you live from the Littleton Public Library nestled up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, here I am...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 2-1/Overall 15-21)

Stanford (-3.5) vs. Notre Dame - Irish lose and their FBS controversy fades away...
Oklahoma/Oklahoma State (Under 68) - Freezing rain, 35 degrees, and windy in Stillwater...
Patriots (-3) @ Broncos - Doubtful that Denver's QB will match Brady...


And that's it for today.  As always, remember that our musings are not guarantees.  Again, sorry for the late picks, but we hope that you enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving Weekend!

Football Friday (2015 - Week 12)

Good afternoon everyone.  Sorry for the late picks this weekend - I've had a lot on my plate... Live from the Palace Station Sportsbook in Las Vegas, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 1-2/Overall 15-17-1)

Northwestern (+11) @ Wisconsin
Tulane (+3) @ SMU
Cardinals/Bengals (Over 48.5)

This is the time of the year when the playoff picture starts to come into focus.  Saturday was a big day for several teams to keep these playoff hopes alive.  I didn't bet those games, but they were fun to watch...

Northwestern (+11) - Northwestern is 8-0 when outrushing teams this year.  Wisconsin has had trouble stopping the run.  I think you see where this is going...

Tulane (+3) - SMU has been outscored 214-77 in the 4th quarter this year.

Cardinals/Bengals (Over 48.5) - I'm not much of a totals guy, but both of these teams were shut down last week, so I think Arizona & Cincy come out firing.

Good luck.  I know we need it, and may all your tickets cash!


And now coming to you live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood books, also in Las Vegas, here's Pete...



Pete's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 1-2/Overall 11-21-1)

North Carolina (-5) @ Virginia Tech
Rice (+3) @ UTSA
Cowboys (Pk) @ Dolphins


And now fresh off an 0-3 week, it's me...



Coach's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 0-3/Overall 13-20)

Texans (+4) vs. Jets - Division-leading Texans at home with points...
Cowboys (-3) @ Dolphins - Romo is back, and he has weapons...
Bengals/Cardinals (Under 48) - Just to bother Joey.  :)  Nah, maybe 45 total...


Pete gets the Cowboys as a "pick 'em" while I get them at (-3) because those were the lines at the time.  Same goes for the differing total on the Bengals/Cardinals game.  Remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only and enjoy your football today.

Football Friday (2015 - Week 11)

Good evening everyone.  A day early this week, what do you know?  I actually have to work until 7:00  tomorrow night and I didn't want to post super late (especially considering how many college games Joey and Pete have weighed in on).  I ended up going 2-1 last week to lead the pack, and for that reason alone, I think that we'll keep the order just the same.  Joey is still our overall leader with me right on his heels, and Pete is closing ground as we attempt to get our overall mark to .500.  Now coming to you live from the Palace Station Sportsbook in Las Vegas, Nevada (and taking the points with the road dogs in college games on Saturday), here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 14-15-1)

Maryland (+15) @ Michigan State
Tulsa (+18) @ Cincinnati
Raiders (-3) vs. Vikings

College basketball starts this week, so it's more time taken to handicap games, but I still have three good ones:

Maryland (+15) - Since Maryland has fired their head coach, all the games have been close, plus Michigan State is not an offensive juggernaut.
Tulsa (+18) - Both these teams are about equal, so three scores is a gift.
Raiders (-3) - Even if Bridgewater plays, he will not be 100%.  Derek Carr is playing lights out and the Raiders look like a playoff contender.

That's it for this week's parlay card.  May all your tickets cash!


Some people like the double-digit college underdogs, and others like the double-digit college favorites.  Now appearing at the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood Sportsbooks in the desert, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 10-19-1)

Oklahoma State (-14) @ Iowa State
Iowa (-11.5) vs. Minnesota
Dolphins/Eagles (Under 50)


Someday we'll get Pete to say something (maybe)...  :)  As has been my tendency recently, I'm going with three NFL bets.  Live from northern New Hampshire, here I am...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 13-17)

Eagles (-6) vs. Dolphins - Eagles 'O' is staring to click, and the fish lost ugly to the Bills...
Patriots/Giants (Over 54.5) - The ball will primarily be in the air in this matchup...
Bengals (-10.5) vs. Texans - How do Texans keep it close in Cincinnati?...


And that's all folks.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Have a great football weekend!

Football Friday (2015 - Week 10)

Hello again everyone.  My predictions were right last week, just not about the football games...  :) I stated that my brother Pete, despite a slow start, was capable of getting hot, and he went 3-0. Joey and I went 1-2 however, giving our group a collective record of 5-4 last week.  That was our second winning weekend in a row though, so we're getting better.  Now we'll see if we can build on that momentum.  Coming to you live from the Palace Station Sportsbook in Las Vegas, here's our overall leader Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 14-12-1)

Duke (+8.5) @ North Carolina
Houston (-8) vs. Cincinnati
Falcons (-7) @ 49ers

It's just starting to get cold in Vegas.  Hopefully my picks stay hot.


Duke (+8.5) - Duke is hot after losing a wild finish to Miami, and they are still my pick to win the ACC.
Houston (-8) - The Cougars have one of the hottest offenses in college football.  I think they are still underrated, but should win this weekend by 16 or more.
Falcons (-7) - Both teams have been cold lately, but with the benching of Kaepernick, I don't see San Fran heating up anytime soon.

That's it for this weekend's parlay card.  May all your tickets cash!


Not to give you a spoiler alert or anything, but after Atlanta screwed me again last week, I'm leaving the Falcons against the spread alone.  Good luck Joey...  :)  Now onto the quiet assassin who went undefeated last week.  Not only did Pete go 3-0, but he finished third in the Bally's employee poker tournament and he got a promotion at work.  Now coming to you live from Las Vegas in his brand new threads, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 9-17-1)

LSU (+7) @ Alabama
UNLV (-9.5) vs. Hawaii
Saints (-8.5) vs. Titans


Now for the guy who followed up a 3-0 week with a 1-2 disaster...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 11-16)

Jaguars/Jets (Under 42.5) - Scoring should be tough in this one...
Falcons/49ers (Under 44.5) - I don't trust either team as far as Gabbert can throw them...
Redskins/Patriots (Under 52.5) - I'm expecting a total in the 40's...


As always, remember that our picks are not guaranteed, and they are for entertainment purposes only.  That being said, good luck if you make any wagers, and have a great football weekend!
