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!
