Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 7-1/Overall 41-31-1)
Falcons 42 Packers 17 --- Falcons (-5.5)/Under 60.5
Patriots 21 Steelers 17 --- Steelers (+6)/Under 50.5
Falcons (-5.5) - Both of these games will show why the NFL is so popular. Game one could be a shootout at the Falcon Corral. Both teams have high-powered offenses, so this game comes down to which team plays D. Atlanta has improved on D throughout the season and I believe the Falcons move on to the Super Bowl by beating Green Bay 42-17.
Steelers (+6) - Tom Brady and company are on a mission started by Roger Goodell. It may come down to the final possession, but the Pats meet the Falcons after winning 21-17.
Come by Palace Station race and sports, and may all your parlays cash!
I've gotta give another personal shout out to my friend Joey as he once again helped me transport food and other goods to restock my man cave with supplies for the rest of the winter yesterday. Everytime we hit the road, it's nonstop talk about football and poker... :) Speaking of nonstop talk about football, my brother has some bets for this weekend also. Pete's game results are very similar to Joey's, although half of his bets differ. Live from the Las Vegas Strip, here's Pete...
Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 4-4/Overall 36-37)
Falcons 34 Packers 30 --- Packers (+5.5)/Over 60.5
Patriots 24 Steelers 20 --- Steelers (+6)/Under 50.5
As I peruse everyone's bets, it's funny how similar we see the total scoring going. However, I hope that my partners in crime totally whiff on the winners of Sunday's games... Live from somewhere in the desert, here are my picks...
Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 4-4/Overall 38-34-1)
Packers 34 Falcons 30 --- Packers (+5.5)/Over 60.5 --- I picked the Giants and Cowboys over the Packers, and I got burned both times. I saw Rodgers play, and now I'm a believer. I expect a competitive shootout in the dome, with the Packers winning another thriller...
Steelers 27 Patriots 23 --- Steelers (+6)/Under 50.5 --- I thought that the Steelers played one of their better games of the season when they lost by 11 to the Patriots. If my memory serves me correctly, Roethlisberger was out that day, while Rob Gronkowski and Jamie Collins suited up for the Patriots. I know that I have Steelers jerseys hanging in my closet, but I'll be surprised if Pittsburgh doesn't win this one, and more surprised if they don't cover...
And that's all for now my friends. As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only. Thanks for following along, and have a great football Sunday!
