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!

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!

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!
