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!
