Football (2016-17) - Week 18

Good morning everyone.  Shockingly, it's approaching midnight again as I type another entry for you, but the actual surprise is that you're getting this a full two days ahead of the first games to be played.  These NCAA semifinal playoff games are the first of many on the very busy holiday weekend ahead.  Joey, Pete, and myself will be seeing many wagers over this New Year's Weekend, which actually made doing this post tonight a necessity for me.  I will be working for the next four days, so let's get started.  We had an excellent weekend here the last time around, going 8-1 on the bets that we provided for you.  This time, each of us will be giving you seven bets for the weekend, as our score predictions for the semifinal games will be broken down into two bets each (against the spread and the total).  For our "normal" three weekly bets, I gave all of us the option of choosing from Sunday's NFL games or Monday's NCAA bowl games.  Naturally, Joey and Pete, who ALWAYS pick more college games than me, each chose to go with ALL NFL bets for Sunday and Monday - go figure...  :)  Since they wanted to throw curveballs, I decided to go with three bets from Monday's bowl games.  Once again, thank you for visiting this little blog.  We'll surpass 8,000 total pageviews this weekend, and we'll make a serious run at the 10,000 mark by the Super Bowl.  Leading off for us from Palace Station, here's Joey...


Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-1/Overall 26-21-1)

Washington (+13.5) vs. Alabama
Alabama/Washington (Over 54)
Ohio State (-3) vs. Clemson
Ohio State/Clemson (Under 59)

Raiders (+1) @ Broncos - Broncos could lose and make Chiefs Wild Card team...
Packers (-3) vs. Lions - Lions could go from division winner to out of the playoffs...


I'm glad that the Breaking Bad marathon is on right now, because this is a long entry...  Live from the Strip, here's Pete...

Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-0/Overall 28-20)

Alabama 42  Washington 17
Ohio State 38  Clemson 27

Alabama (-13.5) vs. Washington - USC beat Huskies 26-13, and Bama throttled USC, so....
Alabama/Washington (Over 54) - The game is indoors, and 14 points a quarter covers the over...
Ohio State (-3) vs. Clemson - I think Buckeyes defense has more stops in it than opposing Tigers D...
Ohio State/Clemson (Over 59) - After reviewing Clemson scores especially, I see a track meet here...
Wisconsin (-8) vs. Western Michigan - The Badgers defense should be stingy enough to cover in this one...
USC (-7) vs. Penn State - I like that this is basically a home game for the Trojans...
Auburn/Oklahoma (Under 63.5) - Auburn has been involved in SEVERAL low-scoring games this season...


And now we're ready for a busy weekend of football.  As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only.  Also remember that we'll be including our score predictions for the NCAA Championship Game, and for every NFL playoff game, up through and including the Super Bowl.  Have an outstanding football weekend, and an incredible 2017!
