Football (2016-17) - Week 18

Good morning everyone.  Shockingly, it's approaching midnight again as I type another entry for you, but the actual surprise is that you're getting this a full two days ahead of the first games to be played.  These NCAA semifinal playoff games are the first of many on the very busy holiday weekend ahead.  Joey, Pete, and myself will be seeing many wagers over this New Year's Weekend, which actually made doing this post tonight a necessity for me.  I will be working for the next four days, so let's get started.  We had an excellent weekend here the last time around, going 8-1 on the bets that we provided for you.  This time, each of us will be giving you seven bets for the weekend, as our score predictions for the semifinal games will be broken down into two bets each (against the spread and the total).  For our "normal" three weekly bets, I gave all of us the option of choosing from Sunday's NFL games or Monday's NCAA bowl games.  Naturally, Joey and Pete, who ALWAYS pick more college games than me, each chose to go with ALL NFL bets for Sunday and Monday - go figure...  :)  Since they wanted to throw curveballs, I decided to go with three bets from Monday's bowl games.  Once again, thank you for visiting this little blog.  We'll surpass 8,000 total pageviews this weekend, and we'll make a serious run at the 10,000 mark by the Super Bowl.  Leading off for us from Palace Station, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 26-21-1)

Alabama 42  Washington 35
Ohio State 31  Clemson 27

Washington (+13.5) vs. Alabama
Alabama/Washington (Over 54)
Ohio State (-3) vs. Clemson
Ohio State/Clemson (Under 59)
Texans/Titans (Under 40) - Now neither team has an offense...
Raiders (+1) @ Broncos - Broncos could lose and make Chiefs Wild Card team...
Packers (-3) vs. Lions - Lions could go from division winner to out of the playoffs...


I'm glad that the Breaking Bad marathon is on right now, because this is a long entry...  Live from the Strip, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 23-25)

Alabama 37  Washington 21
Clemson 21  Ohio State 17

Alabama (-13.5) vs. Clemson
Alabama/Washington (Over 54)
Clemson (+3) vs. Ohio State
Ohio State/Clemson (Under 59)
Eagles (-3.5) vs. Cowboys
Ravens (+1) @ Bengals
Saints (+7) @ Falcons


Okay, so maybe Breaking Bad is slowing me down...  ;)  Live from my man cave somewhere in Las Vegas, here are my picks...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 28-20)

Alabama 42  Washington 17
Ohio State 38  Clemson 27

Alabama (-13.5) vs. Washington - USC beat Huskies 26-13, and Bama throttled USC, so....
Alabama/Washington (Over 54) - The game is indoors, and 14 points a quarter covers the over...
Ohio State (-3) vs. Clemson - I think Buckeyes defense has more stops in it than opposing Tigers D...
Ohio State/Clemson (Over 59) - After reviewing Clemson scores especially, I see a track meet here...
Wisconsin (-8) vs. Western Michigan - The Badgers defense should be stingy enough to cover in this one...
USC (-7) vs. Penn State - I like that this is basically a home game for the Trojans...
Auburn/Oklahoma (Under 63.5) - Auburn has been involved in SEVERAL low-scoring games this season...


And now we're ready for a busy weekend of football.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Also remember that we'll be including our score predictions for the NCAA Championship Game, and for every NFL playoff game, up through and including the Super Bowl.  Have an outstanding football weekend, and an incredible 2017!

Football (2016-17) - Week 17

Good morning everyone.  I may actually hit the 'publish' button before midnight here in Las Vegas, but you get the idea...  Somehow, I'm getting this post online over a full day before this weekend's early Saturday schedule.  Today/tonight I was lazy and stayed home on my day off.  Not going to the Strip saved me money as I surely would have bet some money on the Giants over the Eagles.  Joey went 2-1 last week and pulled to within a half-game of the blog lead.  Without any further ado, here's my friend from Palace Station...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 24-20-1)

49ers (+4.5) @ Rams
Broncos (+3.5) @ Chiefs
Lions/Cowboys (Over 44.5)

Like Joey, one of my favorite bets is on a game that has absolutely no playoff implications, and those games are hard to find this weekend.  My brother Pete is diving right into the thick of the playoff races however.  Live from the Strip, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 20-25)

Texans (Pick) vs. Bengals
Ravens (+5.5) @ Steelers
Chiefs (-3.5) vs. Broncos

Pete was winless last week, but after bowling a perfect 300 game and an 820 series on Monday, he could miss every single bet for the rest of the season and still ride into the sunset a happy man.  Congratulations Pete!  I actually like Pete's bets, but being a Steelers fan, I can't bring myself to put in print that I like the Ravens with the points, so I'll give y'all three fresh bets...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 25-20)

Falcons (-3) @ Panthers - Falcons may have Jones, and will have motivation...
Browns (+5.5) vs. Chargers - If there was ever a week for the Browns to win (or cover), this is it...
Colts/Raiders (Over 53) - Footballs should be flying in this game, and two premier kickers should mop up anything within fifty yards...


As a bonus this week, we're going to give you all of Joey's bowl bets, with scores, only omitting the NCAA semi-final playoff games (which all three of us are going to give you next week).  Joey bets all of the bowls every season, and I do apologize for the delay in getting this information out to you (you'll see that some of the bowls have been played).  For better or worse, these picks will not be included in Joey's blog record, and are just a Christmas bonus for y'all...

New Mexico (-7) - New Mexico 35-14
Houston (-4) - Houston 34-28
Arkansas State (+6) - UCF 26-21
Appalachian State (+1) - Appalachian State 28-23
Louisiana-Lafayette (+6) - Louisiana-Lafayette 40-36
Tulsa (-13) - Tulsa 45-21
Memphis (+6) - Memphis 35-34
Wyoming (+9) - BYU 26-20
Idaho (+13) - Colorado State 34-27
Old Dominion (-3) - Old Dominion 41-27
Navy (+6) - Navy 41-35
Ohio (+4) - Troy 28-26
Hawaii (NL) - Hawaii 38-35
Mississippi State (-12) - Mississippi State 35-20

Pittsburgh (-5) - Pittsburgh 35-28
Utah (-8.5) - Utah 37-20
Kansas State (+2) - Kansas State 42-28
South Florida (-10.5) - South Florida 41-20
Virginia Tech (-6.5) - Virginia Tech 38-28
Colorado (-2.5) - Colorado 38-35
Georgia (-1) - Georgia 35-31
Stanford (-3) - Stanford 35-14
Air Force (-13) - Air Force 35-10
Nebraska (+3) - Nebraska 28-24
Michigan (-6.5) - Michigan 34-24
Louisville (+3) - Louisville 28-27
Georgia Tech (-4) - Georgia Tech 42-35
Iowa (+3) - Iowa 17-14
Wisconsin (-7) - Wisconsin 35-24
Penn State (+7) - USC 38-35
Oklahoma (-5) - Oklahoma 34-28


And that's all folks.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Thank you for checking out the blog again.  It looks like we'll be approaching 10,000 total page views here by the time that the Super Bowl rolls around.  Remember that each of us will give you score predictions on next week's NCAA semi-final playoff games, in addition to our three favorite NFL bets.  Have a great football weekend and a Safe and Merry Christmas!

Football (2016-17) - Week 16

Good morning everyone.  We have lots of NFL picks for you this weekend, and none of us picked the same bets this time around.  Joey embarked on new territory for us as he landed the first tie of the season (Patriots by 7), and Pete led the way for us last weekend going 2 for 3.  Joey will start things off for us this morning from Palace Station...


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

Buccaneers (+7) @ Cowboys
Titans (+5.5) @ Chiefs
Cardinals (+3) vs. Saints


I actually can't believe that it took this long for one of us to tie on one of our blog bets this season...  Now we go to the Strip for Pete's favorite bets...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 20-22)

Texans (-6) vs. Jaguars
Lions (+4) @ Giants
Redskins (-6.5) vs. Panthers


Pete told me before the season started that he wanted me to use the photo above.  Last weekend I was unable to bring up that photo, so I put up a shirt and tie shot, and he went 2-1, and we're not gonna let that happen again...  ;)  Live from the Strip, here are my favorites for this weekend...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 24-18)

Packers/Bears (Under 38.5) - Brutal weather expected in Chicagoland tomorrow...
Patriots (-3) @ Broncos - Looking at the quarterback matchup here...
Raiders/Chargers (Over 49.5) - Live by the sword, die by the sword...  ;)


And that's all of our picks for this weekend.  Remember as always that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!

Saturday, December 10, 2016

Football (2016-17) - Week 15

Good morning everyone.  It looks like I'll actually get this posted about an hour before Army and Navy kick off.  My brother Pete was unsuccessful in petitioning the NCAA to add more games to this weekend's schedule, so we'll all have some NFL picks for you this weekend.  As we did last season, Joey, Pete, and myself will give you score predictions for the NCAA semifinal and national championship games, in addition to doing the same for every NFL playoff game leading up to and including the Super Bowl.  It's hard to believe it's almost that time of year.  Leading off for us today live from the Palace Station Race & Sports Book, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 21-18)

Titans (-1.5) vs. Broncos
Saints (+3.5) @ Buccaneers
Patriots (-7) vs. Ravens

As you'll soon learn, Joey and Pete don't agree on everything going on tomorrow.  Live from Caesar's Entertainment, here's Pete...
 

Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 18-21)

Army (+4.5) @ Navy
Colts (-6.5) vs. Texans
Buccaneers (-3.5) vs. Saints

More power to Pete and Joey.  I couldn't even bring myself to bet on tomorrow's Saints/Bucs game, and I bet on several games each week.  Spoiler Alert:  Stay tuned, and I'll show you a summary of my parlays for last week..  Until I caught up with updating our records over the past few weeks a couple of minutes ago, I didn't realize what a tear I've been on here with my blog picks.  After starting the season here at 12-12, I've gone 11-4 over my last 15 picks to bring my record to 23-16.  Maybe that explains why I won some money last weekend...  :)  Anyway, here are my bets for tomorrow's games...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Weekend 3-0/Overall 23-16)

Chargers/Panthers (Over 48.5) - Points in Chargers games have been very kind to me this season...
Lions (-7.5) vs. Bears - Lions at home marching towards playoffs...
Cowboys/Giants (Under 47.5) - Maybe a little nasty weather will help me here...

As promised, here's a little something to make you laugh...


Each weekend, I do like a gazillion football parlays, and then I track them using a sheet like this.  Someday I'll have a big enough bankroll to make straight bets, like smart people do...  :)  As always, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!

Football (2016-17) - Week 14

Joey's Parlay Card

Navy (-3) vs. Temple

Football (2016-17) - Week 12

Good morning everyone.  I worked tonight, then made my weekly football bets, and here I am.  I wish that my bankroll reflected my blog success as I've now caught Joey for a share of the lead here after going 2-1 last week, but my "favorite" bet each week continues to kill me.  Pete is only two games off the pace as we enter Week 12.  With no time to waste as it gets later by the minute, here's Joey coming to you live from Palace Station...  

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 18-15)

Rice (-1) vs. Texas El-Paso
Connecticut/Boston College (Under 36.5)
Packers (+3) @ Redskins

The weather is finally cooling off in Las Vegas, but the football playoff is getting hotter.  Louisville lost on Thursday, so this weekend's games are very meaningful.  Let's start with...

Rice (-1) - They play UTEP, one of the worst teams in football.

U. Conn/BC (Under 36.5) - Both have pretty good offenses and terrible defenses.  I just hope overtime is not needed...

Packers (+3) - Green Bay picked up a running back, so maybe they can score...


That's all for this week.  May all your parlays cash.


Thanks to Joey for not saying that my alma mater is one of the worst teams in football this season.  :)  I'm suddenly noticing that our picks are college heavy this week as Pete gives you a trio of NCAA bets.  Live from Caesar's Entertainment, here's my brother...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 16-17)

Texas-San Antonio (+27.5) @ Texas A&M
Old Dominion (-8) @ Florida Atlantic
USC (-13) @ UCLA


Yes, I'm typing out the full names of most of the schools, but the California ones have really long names...  :)  I'd like to wish my brother a happy birthday as he'll be a little older the next time that we see you.  Pete had the early "present" (or misfortune) of learning two of my bets early, and here's where we make them official...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 18-15)

Texas Tech/Iowa State (Under 75.5) - Cyclones are tough at home, and nasty weather is expected...
Stanford/California (Over 64) - Again, have you seen a Cal game this season???
Steelers/Browns (Over 45) - My team scores better than they tackle...


And that's it for this week.  Remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only, have an outstanding Thanksgiving, and we'll see you next week...

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Football (2016-17) - Week 11

Good morning everyone.  Why do something early when you can wait til the last minute, right?  :)  I think that motto could catch on.  I worked until 11:00 last night, so I'm up bright and early to greet you with our favorite bets for this weekend, as you enjoy your cup of coffee or stumble in from the Strip.  Joey still leads the way, and he'll start us off from the Palace Station Race & Sports Book...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 18-12)

Vanderbilt (+3.5) @ Missouri
Wyoming (-7) @ UNLV
Panthers (-3) vs. Chiefs


As I sit here watching College Gameday, I think that doing this on Saturday morning isn't all horrible...  :)  While Joey hopes that all of your parlays cash, Pete is giving you a team that I NEVER would have thought would be a favorite in any game this season.  Live from Caesar's Entertainment, here's Pete...


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

Penn State (-7) @ Indiana
UNC-Charlotte (-12.5) vs. Rice
Chargers (-4) vs. Dolphins


Just sitting here noticing that none of our bets share common games this weekend.  Live from Planet Hollywood and Bally's this weekend, here are my picks...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 16-14)

Stanford/Oregon (Over 56.5) - Betting that Ducks continue to score and surrender points in bunches...
Cowboys (+2.5) @ Steelers - Surprised that Dallas is getting points as they visit struggling Steelers...
Patriots (-7.5) vs. Seahawks - Fresh off bye week, Pats host Seahawks squad that travels cross-country after playing Monday night...


And there you have our favorite bets for this week.  Remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only and have a great football weekend!

Saturday, November 5, 2016

Football (2016-17) - Week 10

Good morning everyone.  Since it's Saturday morning, this post was coming to you late anyway, but now I can't get blogger to load on my tablet, although other sites load, and blogger does work on my phone.  Anyway, here we go.  Joey is still three games ahead of both Pete and myself, as we all went 2-1 last week.  Our picks share several games this week, although we took different parts of each (spread vs. total).  Back on my tablet now (WOO HOO!!!).  Leading off from Palace, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 17-10)

Tulsa (-9) vs. East Carolina - These two programs are headed in different directions...
California (+17) vs. Washington - Cal has the offensive firepower to stay with Huskies, just not the 'D'.  The backdoor cover could come into play here...
LSU (+7.5) vs. Alabama - Not saying they will win, but Tigers stay within a touchdown...

Come by the all new Palace Station Race & Sports Book.  Until then, may all your parlay tickets cash!


I thought I was up early, but now the College Gameday guys are already making their picks.  Without any further ado, live from Caesar's Entertainment, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 14-13)

Chiefs (-7) vs. Jaguars
Cowboys/Browns (Under 47)
Broncos (Pick) @ Raiders


And now it's my turn.  Let's jinx it again by mentioning that all three of us are above .500 at the moment...  :)  From Bally's and Paris this weekend, here are my picks...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 14-13)

Alabama/LSU (Over 45) - Three ways to score here - Bama offense, Tiger offense, and Bama defense...
Washington/California (Over 77) - Have you seen a Cal game this season???
Cowboys (-7) @ Browns - Cowboys are rolling, while Browns QB's are getting rolled up...


And that's it my friends.  Remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and also remember to set your clocks back an hour before you go to bed Saturday night...  Have a great football weekend everyone!

Football (2016-17) - Week 9

Good evening everyone.  I actually had the day off (Happy Nevada Day, by the way) but after placing my football bets for the weekend (okay, we all know I'm not done), I took a nap (per my usual M.O.).  Joey extended his lead to three games last weekend as my brother climbed to .500, and I fell to the .500 mark.  As you'll soon find out, I strongly agree with one of Joey's picks, as well as one of my brother's.  Leading off from the Palace Station Race and Sports Book, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 15-9)

Eastern Michigan (-7) vs. Miami (Ohio)
SMU (+2) @ Tulane
Patriots (-6) @ Bills

The season feels like it just started and is now almost over.  The high schools here in Vegas are starting their playoffs and the college bowl season starts in just over a month.  I think I have the lead (yes, you do Joey), so we will keep it rolling with a couple of low-profile games...

Eastern Michigan (-7) - Miami (Ohio) is just not very good this year and they are down to their 3rd-string QB.  Eastern rolls 31-7.

SMU (+2) - SMU won a big game last week and could have a let down on the road, but I like this tough Mustang squad.  They should be the favorite in this game and might be by kickoff.

Patriots (-6) - I'm gonna drink the Brady Kool-Aid, plus no Gronk last time.  Belichick does not like losing, especially to rival East teams.  Pats win 33-10.

That's all for this week.  Come by and see the all-new race and sports book at Palace Station, and may all your parlay cards cash!


While I'm thinking of it, Joey and Pete both had a loss last week in a UTEP/UTSA game that went FIVE overtimes.  I just learned this as I was checking scores tonight...  :)  Pete's following in Joey's footsteps again in picking a few games that are under the radar.  Live from Caesar's Entertainment and the sportsbooks at Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood, here's Pete...


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

Kentucky (+6) @ Missouri
Baylor (-3.5) @ Texas
Middle Tennessee State/Florida International (Over 62.5)


Final score just in:  Indians 1  Cubs 0  Indians take a 2-1 lead in the World Series.  I had a $5.00 parlay with the Cubs and over 8 runs scored.  That's how tonight's game happened.  I should just stick to losing football bets...  ;)  Alright, let's see if I can get back on the winning track.  I really like my bets for this weekend, and that's never good...  :)  Coming to you live from Planet Hollywood both days this weekend, here are my best bets...


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

Baylor (-3.5) @ Texas - Bears lost by six last year, with nary a QB...
Patriots (-6) @ Bills - Bills won 16-0 earlier in season, but now must contend with Brady and Gronkowski.  Huge divisional implications if Pats allow Bills to get the sweep...
Cowboys (-4.5) vs. Eagles - Big primetime game in Arlington, and Dez returns for Dallas...


Maybe I finally get on the right side of an Eagles game this week...  Anyway, those are our favorites for the weekend, and remember that they're for entertainment purposes only, as always.  Have a great football weekend and a Happy Halloween!

Friday, October 21, 2016

Football (2016-17) - Week 8

Good evening everyone.  I'm not always home this early on a Friday night, but when I am...  I actually work at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, and everyone's picks are already in, so off we go.  Joey has been Mr. Consistency, going 2-1 each of the last three weeks, and he's still our overall leader.  Live from the Palace Station Race & Sports Book, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 13-8)

Central Florida (-4) @ Connecticut
Colorado State (+3) @ UNLV
UTSA (-9.5) vs. UTEP

Joey spent the early part of today helping me out and tonight he's calling some Nevada high school football, so he wanted me to remind you to stop by and visit Palace Station.  Before or after doing that, you can stop on the Strip and see my brother Pete and myself.  Pacing himself during the last few weeks, and live from Planet Hollywood, Bally's, and Paris, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 10-11)

Utah (+7) @ UCLA
UTSA (-9.5) vs. UTEP
Patriots (-7) @ Steelers

Pete has picks that match one of Joey's and one of mine, so we're both hoping that he doesn't go 0-3 this week.  :)  Since Pete and Joey seem to have college football pretty much covered, I'm going to focus on the NFL.  Okay, that's a total coincidence...  I'm 7 for my last 9 bets, and am hoping to keep it up.  Live from the books at Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood, these are my picks...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 11-10)

Vikings (-3) @ Eagles - Vikes defense has been a force...
Chiefs (-6.5) vs. Saints - Chiefs are tough at Arrowhead, and Saints struggle on the road...
Patriots (-7) @ Steelers - No Big Ben for the Black & Gold, and defense has been suspect so far...


And that's it for tonight my friends.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!

Friday, October 14, 2016

Football (2016-17) - Week 7

Good morning everyone.  There's no sense in trying to tempt fate or jinx things, so of course I'll jump right in.  For the first time in quite a while, all three of us are at the .500 mark or above.  Joey is at 11-7, Pete sits at 10-8, and I've hit on 5 of my last 6 bets to reach 9-9.  Now that fate has been tempted, here are our bets for this week.  Leading off from the Palace Station Race & Sports Book, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 11-7)

Texas Tech (+1) vs. West Virginia
Central Michigan (-3) @ Northern Illinois
Redskins (+3) vs. Eagles


With baseball playoffs and hockey starting their season, it's been a busy week in the sports book, so I'll make this brief tonight.  Come by the all new Palace Station Race and Sports Book, and may all your parlays cash.  And Coach, Happy Birthday to you.


Yes, yes, I turned 21 a few days back (AHEM)...  :)  Now we shift our focus to the Las Vegas Strip.  Live from the books at Paris, Bally's, and Planet Hollywood, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 10-8)

UTSA (-3) @ Rice
Titans (-7) @ Browns
Steelers (-7.5) @ Dolphins


And now it's my turn.  Live from the Planet Hollywood, Bally's, and Paris sportsbooks, these are my favorite bets for the week...


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

Pittsburgh (-3.5) @ Virginia - I don't know how the Cavs will score with the Panthers...
Arizona State/Colorado (Over 60) - Easy to see these teams hitting half of this total in one quarter...
Cowboys (+4) @ Packers - Cowboys quietly have one loss, and can attack by land and air...


And that's all for this week my friends.  Remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!

'Football (2016-17) - Week 6

Good morning everyone.  Now it's early Saturday morning in Las Vegas, and the first Friday that I've worked since my very first day of work (which means that this time I have a reason to be posting late, an opposed to excuses)...  :P  Joey and Pete didn't have their picks to me when I finished work, as they were also working Friday.  Tonight Joey was on the road, and I told him that he could just send me his picks without commentary.  Coming to you live from the Palace Station Sportsbook & Casino is one of our co-leaders.  Here's Joey...  


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 9-6)

Wake Forest (-3) vs. Syracuse
Washington State (+7) @ Stanford
Bengals (-1) @ Cowboys


About now, Joey would tell you to come visit him at Palace Station, and that he hopes all of your parlay tickets cash.  After I went 3-0 last week, Joey told me, "it's about time..."  Joey likes you better...  :)  Now for our other co-leader, live from Paris, Bally's, and Planet Hollywood, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 9-6)

Texas State (+10) @ Georgia State
Steelers (-7.5) vs. Jets
Eagles (-3) @ Lions

I can only guess that my brother's Texas State pick (my alma mater) is some sort of an early birthday tribute to me.  No need to rush out and buy me anything - just send cash...  ;)  Pete's pick of the Eagles is also my favorite play of the weekend.  Actually, so many of my friends like it that I'm getting a bit nervous.  Here I am live from Caesar's Entertainment with my three favorite bets for this weekend...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 7-8)

Oklahoma/Texas (Over 73.5) - This installment will be the 'Red River Shootout...'
Patriots/Browns (Under 47) - Pats defense is stingy, and Browns are running out of quarterbacks...
Eagles (-3) @ Lions - Undefeated Philly had bye week, and Lions lost to Bears.  What am I missing???


And that's it folks.  I have to wake up WAY TOO EARLY to watch UT vs. OU, so as always, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!

Football (2016-17) - Week 5

Good morning everyone.  I could tell you how busy and full my day was, but let's just accept the fact that I'm typing this late again.  I was thinking about asking Joey and Pete if we should start submitting our picks on Tuesdays..., the Tuesday after the games.  Not as entertaining for y'all, but our records would shoot through the roof!  ;)  Okay, let's get down to business.  The man who once again gave me a ride so that I could fill my fridge today, live from the Palace Station Sportsbook in Las Vegas, Nevada, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 7-5)

Ohio (-3) @ Miami (Ohio)
Clemson (+2) vs. Louisville
Jets (+2.5) vs. Seahawks

Busy week of football.  College has some good matchups this week, and I'm on one of them (but first, let's go to Ohio)...

Ohio (-3) - Miami-Ohio is having lots of injuries on an already depleted squad, while Ohio has a good shot at winning the conference.  A second-half blowout and the Bobcats win 42-10.

Clemson (+2) - This is a big game for the Cardinals and their Heisman Trophy candidate.  The line opened at Clemson (-2) and quickly went the other way.  Vegas is normally right when it comes to a favorite becoming a dog.  Clemson 31-28.

Jets (+2.5) - The Jets were embarrassed last week and still barely lost.  The Seahawks say Wilson will play, but it's hard to run on a bum ankle.  The O-Line for Seattle is the worst in the league.  Jets win 20-17.

Come by and see the all-new Palace Station Race & Sports Book, and may all your parlay cards cash!


If you like foreshadowing, there may be some disagreement on the Seahawks/Jets game, although I also think the game will go "under..."  Oh the suspense...  Now it's time for our new leader.  Live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood sportsbooks, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 8-4)

Ball State (-4) vs. Northern Illinois
Oregon (+1.5) @ Washington State
Broncos (-3) @ Buccaneers

More foreshadowing.  Someone might agree with one of Pete's picks...  Also coming to you live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood books, here's my two cents...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 4-8)

Seahawks (-2.5) @ Jets - I think Seattle's defense will carry them...
Broncos (-3) @ Buccaneers - Cardinals have looked particularly unimpressive, yet they CRUSHED Tampa.  How do Bucs score on Broncos???...
Saints/Chargers (Over 53.5) - Brees, Rivers, Saints depleted defense on a short week...

And that's all folks.  Remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and we'll see you next week.  Have a great football weekend!

Football (2016-17) - Week 4

Good morning everyone.  I apologize for the late post (again).  This time I was ready with my picks before my esteemed colleagues, who both worked Friday.  Joey was calling high school football games and Pete was running things on the Strip, while I was busy selecting bets for this weekend.  Speaking of my bets, this is a great time to remind you that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  I went 0-3 last weekend, and I did it in GRAND STYLE, getting CRUSHED by both Louisville and the Saints/Giants NON-OVER in the process.  Let's start with some guys who actually know what they're doing.  Live from the Palace Station Race & Sports Book, here's Joey...
 

Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 6-3)

East Carolina (+13) @ Virginia Tech
Cincinnati (-17) @ Miami (Ohio)
Cowboys (-7) vs. Bears

East Carolina (+13) - Arrrrrrrggg.  The Pirates are playing good football and Virginia Tech has some big games coming up.  Va. Tech wins 38-30.
Cincinnati (-17) - Miami (Ohio) is one of the bottom five teams in FCS.  Cincy wins 31-10.
Cowboys (-7) vs. Bears - These two teams are starting second-string QB's.  The Dallas rookie looks really good.  The Chicago offense went from bad to worse.  Dallas wins 34-3.

That's all for this week's parlay card.  Come see the new Palace Station Race & Sports Book!


Joey went a very nice 2-1 last week, and Pete followed that up by going 3-0.  Yeah, I hate showoffs too...  :)  This puts Joey and Pete in a tie for first with 6-3 records.  The good news is that I have sole possession of...  Yeah, I'm getting my butt kicked right now...  :)  Live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood Sportsbooks, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 6-3)

Army (-14.5) @ Buffalo
Memphis (-17) vs. Bowling Green
Cowboys (-7) vs. Bears


If you're new here, Pete isn't a man of many words - he just wins bets.  I myself am a man of many words, and I'm 2-7...  Despite going 0-for-3 here last week, somehow I managed a small monetary win in my actual parlays.  Go me!  :P  Live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood Sportsbooks, here are my favorite bets for this weekend...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 0-3/Overall 2-7)

California/Arizona State (Over 83) - The game balls should get frequent-flyer miles...
Broncos (+3.5) @ Bengals - Super Bowl Champs GETTING POINTS @ Bungles...
Cardinals (-4) @ Bills - Betting last week's Arizona squad shows up again...


And that's all folks.  I intend to write again soon at my other blogs (assuming you follow them), but work and football has been filling my dance card.  Have a great football weekend and we'll see you again next Friday!

Football (2016-17) - Week 3

Good evening everyone.  Gonna be a lot of people surprised to see this post done on time after the last two weeks...  :)  Thank you very much for stopping by my little blog.  Last week the total pageviews here surpassed the 5,000 mark all-time, and we've been seeing about 200 views per week.  I told Joey that we seem to have a little cult following.  To this point, our cult has seen Joey go 4-2, Pete start 3-3, and I'm at 2-4, but I've got everyone right where I want them...  ;)  Okay, not so much, but there's a lot of football left.  We'll start off again from the Palace Station Race and Sports Book.  Live from Las Vegas, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 4-2)

Marshall (-17) vs. Akron
Army (-3) @ Texas El-Paso
Eagles (+3) @ Bears


J E T S   Jets Jets Jets  That's the way to start the parlay card.  Much better than last week.  Let's finish with more winners...

Marshall (-17) - The Thundering Herd should win the conference while the Zips are headed in the wrong direction.  Marshall 41-7.

Army (-3) - Often, when something tragic happens to a team, they fall apart because of the distractions.  I think this Black Knight team will come together and win one for Brandon Jackson, who was killed in a one-car accident this past week.  The service academies are 6-0 to start the season.  Army 24-10.

Eagles (+3) - The Bears have one of the worst offenses in the league and the defense needs to go recruit Brian Urlacher again.  Eagles take this Monday nighter 27-7.


Since my alma mater NMSU was a come-from-behind winner last week, I'll predict their score...  Ummmm, nevermind.  They play Kentucky.  Take Kentucky.

Come by the all-new Palace Station Race and Sports Book!


Just so you know, the score predictions aren't mandatory here until playoff time.  Joey is just giving you those as a bonus.  I'm lucky to find three favorite bets at this point in time (as demonstrated by my 2-4 record)...  Since Joey is advertising, my brother Pete and myself will be working at a betting substation in front of the sportsbook at Planet Hollywood this weekend.  First the man who went 2-1 last week.  Live from Caesar's Entertainment, here's Pete...


Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 3-3)

Navy (-5.5) @ Tulane
Patriots (-6.5) vs. Dolphins
Chargers (-3) vs. Jaguars


So after reading my picks for last week, Pete somehow finds my one winner (Raiders/Saints - Over), bets on it, and wins.  I told Pete to tell ME which one of my picks will win this week after he sees them...  :P  Live from Planet Hollywood tomorrow and Sunday, here I am...


Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-2/Overall 2-4)

Florida State (-1.5) @ Louisville - Tough test for Cardinals after facing two cupcakes...
Ravens (-6.5) @ Browns - Ravens held Bills to 7, Browns scored 10 vs. Eagles...
Saints/Giants (Over 52.5) - Staying on the 'Saints-Over' gravy train...


And that's all folks.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Have a great football weekend and we'll see you next Friday!

Football (2016-17) - Week 2

Good evening everyone.  I'm sorry this is so late.  I didn't work today, but I stayed busy getting MASHED in a poker freeroll, and then in live poker.  You wouldn't believe how bad I've been running, but I'll write about it in my poker blog soon.  Speaking of running bad, I went 1-2 on my picks here last week.  My brother joined me, surely so I wouldn't feel bad.  However, Joey was perfect last week, hitting all three of his bets.  I have to apologize to Joey, because I'm about to edit (shorten) his comments.  I'm working in the morning...  However, Joey joked with me after going unbeaten, calling his selections "ten star iron horse picks..."  You'll get the joke if you've ever read any Vegas betting publications.  I guess that this is a good time to remind you that these picks are not guarantees, and are for entertainment purposes only.  Now leading off from the Palace Station Sportsbook in Las Vegas, here's Joey...



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

Massachusetts (+17) vs. Boston College - UMass gave Florida all they could handle...
Wyoming (+25) @ Nebraska - Wyoming looked good in opener and Huskers may be looking ahead to Oregon...
Texans (-5) vs. Bears - Bears have worst offense in NFL and Texans are my AFC dark horse...

Come and see the new Palace Station Race & Sportsbook, and until next week, may all your parlays cash...


Sorry again Joey.   Didn't mean to edit your stuff.  Rest assured, the picks ARE Joey's...  :)  Now a man of few words, and a brother who really excels at his job, live from the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood sportsbooks, here's Pete...



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

California (+7.5) @ San Diego State
Bengals (-1.5) @ Jets
Texans (-5) vs. Bears


You can follow the transition from Joey's mostly NCAA bets to Pete's mostly NFL wagers to my own ALL NFL bets...  Good strategy since no one has played for real yet, eh???  :P  Okay, it's my turn.  Coming to you live from the Planet Hollywood, Paris, and Bally's sportsbooks (see how I reversed the order there to avoid being repetitive?), here are my disasters (uh..., bets)...  ;)


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

Raiders/Saints (Over 51) - Carr and Brees will put on an airshow in the dome...
Colts (-3) vs. Lions - Luck is back, and Megatron is not...
Cardinals (-7) vs. Patriots - No Brady or Gronk for Sunday night football in the desert...


And that's all folks.  Have a great football weekend!
