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!

Football (2016-17) - Week 1

Good morning everyone.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute...  :)  WELCOME to the 2016-17 football season!  I'm actually going to get these picks in before kickoff as I watch the Georgia Tech/Boston College game go to halftime this morning.  We'll lead off with last season's champion.  Live from the Palace Station Sportsbook & Casino, here's Joey...


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

Texas A&M (-3) vs. UCLA
Wisconsin (+11) vs. LSU
Hawaii/Michigan (Over 54.5)

Hi.  I have no analysis this week because I'm busy with high school sports, but come to Palace and check out the new electronic boards.  We are finally in the 21st century.  Thanks and good luck!


And now we head to the Strip.  Live from the Bally's/Paris/Planet Hollywood group of sportsbooks, here's Pete...


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

LSU (-11) @ Wisconsin
Clemson (-7.5) @ Auburn
Notre Dame/Texas (Over 60)


And for the first time in the history of this blog, all three forecasters will be coming to you from a sportsbook this week, after I was hired in a temporary position.  Live from the Bally's and Paris Sportsbooks, here are my bets...


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

Hawaii/Michigan (Over 54.5) - Look at last week's Hawaii/Cal score...
Florida (-36.5) vs. Massachusetts - Gators should own the Minutemen...
Notre Dame/Texas (Under 60) - UT defense should be getting "Stronger..."


As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Also as always, we're already disagreeing with each other, so I guess that it's time for some football.  :)  Have a great football weekend, and we'll see you next week!
