Football Friday (2015 - Week 18)

Good evening everyone.  Thanks for your patience with me today.  My work schedule delayed this post just a bit, but still plenty of time for y'all to mull our bets over before tomorrow's games.  Thanks also for stopping by to see our picks.  I told Joey a while back that I thought this blog would have 3,000 views by the Super Bowl, but now I'm betting that the number will be closer to 3,500 at that point.  I also have to thank Joey and Pete for contributing their selections to my little blog.  With the New Year's Eve (NYE) NCAA playoff games, we're actually giving you picks twice this week.  Barring our NFL bets for tomorrow, we'll be giving you score predictions for every NFL playoff game and the NCAA title game.  I'll extrapolate our bets against the spread and on the total from those scores.  If you want to give me your good karma tonight, I want Oregon and TCU to score all night long, and I want Arizona State to win by at least four (alternate spread) over West Virginia.  It's a home bowl game for the Sun Devils...  Joey let my brother and myself get one bet closer to him after the NYE playoff games, but he's still our overall leader.  Live from the Palace Station Sportsbook in Las Vegas, here's Joey...

Joey's Parlay Card (NYE Bets 1-3/Overall 28-26-1)

Bills (+3) vs. Jets
Giants (-3.5) vs. Eagles
Vikings (+3) @ Packers

For those of you that had to work yesterday, I'm sorry.  I was sitting in my Barca Lounger watching college football.  This week is harder than preseason.  Most games don't mean anything.

Bills (+3) - Rex Ryan would like nothing more than to beat his old club and knock them out of the playoffs.
Vikings (+3) - The Packers want to avenge the last loss to the Vikings, but right now they just don't have the horses on offense or defense to win this game.
Giants (-3.5) - This game means nothing since Coughlin will be fired after, but the Eagles are in more disarray.  I would normally take the dog in a game like this, but I don't think the Eagles have a remote chance to win.

That's all from Palace.  Happy New Year and may all your parlay cards cash.

Pete and Joey agree on one of their bets this week, and in case you're worried about the quiet one, Pete has been cashing in on the SEC during the bowl season, thank you very much...  Live from the Las Vegas Strip, somewhere in the vicinity of the Bally's, Paris, and Planet Hollywood Sportsbooks, here's Pete...

Pete's Parlay Card (NYE Bets 2-2/Overall 22-32-1)

Panthers (-10.5) vs. Buccaneers)
Giants (-3.5) vs. Eagles
Redskins (+4) @ Cowboys

Pete is 3 wins behind me, and I'm 3 behind Joey.  Ought to be fun down the stretch.  I have no idea who is going to win this weekend, so I took all totals.  Live from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, here I am...

Coach's Parlay Card (NYE Bets 2-2/Overall 25-30)

Jets/Bills (Over 41) - Game has 23-20 written all over it...
Chargers/Broncos (Over 41.5) - I have faith these rivals will score 42...
Seahawks/Cardinals (Under 47) - Two pretty salty defenses here...

And that's all for tonight folks.  Remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Have a great football weekend and an Outstanding 2016!!!
