CFB Bonus Post

Good evening everyone.  We have a little bonus post for you ahead of Thurday's college playoff games.  Thursday would be New Year's Eve.  Can you BELIEVE it's almost 2016?!  Over the weekend we went 6-3 on our picks, with Joey going 3-0 and Pete checking in at 2-1.  Evidently my bets took the weekend off...  Like I said, this is a bonus for you, and we'll still be back with our picks for the weekend.  I'm thinking that post will appear on Saturday with our normal three bets.  Next weekend's post will have our bets (and score predictions) for every NFL playoff game on Wild Card Weekend, plus our scores and bets for the college championship game on Monday the 11th.  Now for Thursday night's games...  Live from Las Vegas and Palace Station, here's Joey...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 3-0/Overall 27-23-1)

Clemson 41  Oklahoma 28 - Clemson (+3.5) (Over 64) - Clemson is the number one team in the country.
Alabama 27  Michigan State 20 - Michigan State (+9.5) (Over 46.5) - Sparty is a team of destiny.  Michigan State doesn't win, but the game is gonna be close.

Happy holidays and may all your tickets cash!

My brother Pete doesn't say much, but his bets have lately.  Pete and Joey are both 5-1 over the last two weeks, and they turn in similar picks here.  Live from Las Vegas and the Bally's/Paris/Planet Hollywood trio, here's Pete...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 20-30-1)

Clemson 31  Oklahoma 28 - Clemson (+3.5) (Under 64)
Alabama 27  Michigan State 21 - Michigan State (+9.5) (Over 46.5)

Like my brother, I'm taking Clemson in a tight game, but like Joey, I think it's higher-scoring.  All of us like Alabama over the Spartans, but unlike Joey and Pete, I think that Bama covers.  We all think the Tide and Spartans squeak over the total.  Live from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, these are my bets...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 23-28)

Clemson 37  Oklahoma 34 - Clemson (+3.5) (Over 64) - Difficult game to pick, but OU does have a loss (Hook 'Em)...  ;)
Alabama 34  Michigan State 17 - Alabama (-9.5) (Over 46.5) - Tide and Heisman Henry wear down Sparty in this matchup...

And that's it my friends.  If we're right, Clemson and Alabama will be your national title game.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Enjoy the games and we'll see you Saturday!

Football Friday (2015 - Week 17)

Good evening everyone and Merry Christmas!  If I didn't have my titles for the football season posts pre-determined, the title of tonight's entry might be "Uh Oh."  That would be as in LOOKOUT, because our trio of experts went 8-1 here last week.  Our only miss last weekend was Joey's Jets missing the cover by a 1/2 point at Dallas.  Right now I'm typing this post for you from my bed while watching the Cavs/Warriors game.  Did I mention that I bought myself a little Christmas present???

Somebody has a new tablet...  :)  $79.99, and so far, so good...  ;)  Without any further, let's get to this weekend's bets.  Did I mention that we went 8-1 late week?  Okay, coming live to you from the Palace Station Sportbook & Casino, here's Joey...

The NFL playoff picture is almost set.  Most times I will bet against teams that need to win, but Week 16 also gives an opportunity for totals.  I'm taking the under in Week 16 conference games, so we will go with...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 2-1/Overall 24-23-1)

Rams/Seahawks (Under 40.5)
Patriots/Jets (Under 46.5)
Steelers/Ravens (Under 47.5)

Merry Christmas and may all your tickets cash!

Joey is our only bettor who is above .500 right now, but we're trying to rectify that.  As our special gift to you next week, the three of us will be giving you our bets on the two New Year's Eve college football playoff games.  I'm talking against the spread and totals.  That should come to you on Thursday night.  Okay, back to our current programming...  Coming live to you from the Strip (Bally's, Paris, or Planet Hollywood), here's Pete...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 3-0/Overall 18-29-1)

Steelers (-10) @ Ravens
Browns/Chiefs (Under 43.5)
Cowboys/Bills (Under 43)

My Christmas present to Pete is that all three of his bets were adjusted to reflect the more beneficial current odds.   This happened to one of Joey's submissions also.  Now it's my turn.  Live from the White Mountains, where it was 51 degrees today (which won't happen again for months), here I am...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 3-0/Overall 22-26)

Chiefs (-11) vs. Browns - Browns have been that bad...
Patriots (-3) @ Jets - Pats have been dominant in AFC East...
49ers/Lions (Over 43) - Lions indoor 'Over' worked Monday, so...

And that's it folks.  While we're shooting for 9-0, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  That being said, I hope you're winning stacks and enjoying the holidays!!!

Happy Holidays

Since I'll be working several hours over the next few days until I post on Friday, I wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and an Outstanding 2016!  If things go as planned, I'll be typing to you from my brand new tablet on Friday.  In the meantime, have a great week!

Football Friday (2015 - Week 16)

Good morning everyone.  The bad news is that I have a late post for you this week that is going to be abbreviated and done from my phone, but the good news is that I plan on doing next week's entry from a new tablet.  Joey, who went 3-0 last week, leads off for us today...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 22-22-1)

New Mexico (+10) vs. Arizona
Jets (-3.5) @ Cowboys
Packers (-3) @ Raiders

As for Pete, he went 0-3 here last week, but won like $800.00 at the poker tables...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 15-29-1)

Seahawks  (-14.5) vs. Browns
Steelers (-6) vs. Broncos 
Lions/Saints  (Over 50.5)

For some reason, I hope that Pete's picks do really well this week...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 19-26)

Seahawks (-14.5) vs. Browns
Patriots (-13.5) vs. Titans
Lions/Saints (Over 50.5)

I plan on editing these picks with the full text.  Regardless, I should have a new tablet next week, and these phone posts will come to an end.  Remember, these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Have a great football weekend!

Football Friday (2015 - Week 15)

Good evening everyone.  My crack staff was kind enough to get their picks to me early this week since I have to work tomorrow.  The ironic thing is that we've only picked one Saturday game among the three of us...  :)  Joey also seems to be on a little vacation, and Pete was busy hurting the 1-2 NL poker table at Red Rock, so the early contributions are truly appreciated.  Without any further ado, here's Joey coming to you live from somewhere between San Diego and Las Vegas...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 19-22-1)

Saints (+3.5) @ Buccaneers
Redskins (+3) @ Bears
Packers (-7) vs. Cowboys

No more college football til December 19th, so I guess I'll pick three NFL teams.

Saints (+3.5) - Saints are still a better team and this year they're playing better on the road.
Redskins (+3) - The NFC East teams cannot win two in a row, nor do they lose two in a row.
Packers (-7) - This falls into the same community as above, plus the Packers really need a win to stay in the NFC Central mix.

That's it for this week.  I have my numbers and I am ready to start the bowl season.  Good luck!

Like I said, Joey's on vacation, and there is actually a little NCAA action this weekend.  Before I pick on Joey too much though, we picked one bet the same.  However, Pete took a flyer on a college bet among his action.  Live from the Vegas Strip, here's Pete...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 15-26-1)

Navy (-22.5) vs. Army
Lions (+3) @ Rams
49ers (+2) @ Browns

Last week I went 2-1, and I know exactly how - my pair of winners consisted of big favorites.  That being said, you have one guess where my money is going this weekend...

Seahawks (-10) @ Ravens - Hawks CRUSHED Vikings, Ravens are nevermore...
Broncos (-7) vs. Oakland - Suddenly hot Broncos at home in the cold, thin air...
Packers (-7) vs. Cowboys - Rodgers at home in the chilly Wisconsin air...

And that it folks.  Remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and thanks for sending this blog over the 2,000 view mark!  Have a great football weekend!

Football Friday (2015 - Week 14)

Good evening everyone.  Once again I'm posting late (shocking).  It's really fortunate for me that I'm not betting serious amounts of money this season as I just can't seem to get on track.  Pete led us with 2 wins last weekend, Joey had 1, and I whiffed every bet.  Joey still leads us overall for the season, and he's leading off for us tonight...

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 18-20-1)

Temple (+6) @ Houston
Iowa (+3.5) vs. Michigan State
Vikings (+1.5) vs. Seahawks

How time flies.  The college season is literally over.  It's now the start of the championships and the bowl season, which I will once again bet every game and total :), but first this week.  I like more college than NFL.

Temple (+6) - Both teams have really good offenses.  I think that Temple has the better D.  I guess we shall see.
Iowa (+3.5) - It's a high profile game that I normally stay from.  Plus this is like a playoff game since the winner is in and the loser is out, so I'll take the dog.
Vikings (+1.5) - At home, Minnesota opened a 3-point favorite.  Vegas is seldom wrong, and the public seldom right.

I haven't picked my Alma Mater all year, so I'm giving a bonus pick.
NMSU (-2) @ UL Monroe - Both teams are bad, but NMSU has not had 4 wins since 2004 and might be a little more motivated to play.

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

Wow, I'm kinda glad Pete doesn't have much to say, because Joey said a lot
...  :)  I'm posting from my phone this time, which is much harder...  Now it's Pete's turn to wow us...

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 14-24-1)

Western Kentucky (-7.5) vs. Southern Mississippi)
Alabama (-18) vs. Florida
Broncos/Chargers (Over 43.5)

And now let's see if I can win a bet this week...  :)

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 15-24)

Bengals (-9) @ Browns - Stripes face off against yet another new Browns QB...
Eagles/Patriots (Under 49) - Falling temperatures and Pats receivers...
Steelers (-7) vs. Colts - I remember last year's game...

And that's it my friends.  Remember, no guarantees here, so wager at your own risk.  Have a great football weekend!
