Good morning everyone. We're two weeks and a day away from another Super Bowl. As I sit here typing this at 6:22 a.m., I find myself with a dilemma, as Joey had sent me his scores before the line changed on the Jaguars/Patriots game. Joey had intended to take the Jags as an underdog, but with the line movement, his score prediction has him taking the Pats to cover. Ultimately, it doesn't cost him any money, because I don't pay very well :D , but I just wanted to make a note of that... We'll lead off with Joey's picks as the NFL's "semifinal round" awaits...
Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 3-5/Overall 36-38-2)
Another football season is a couple of weeks from being finished. The playoffs have had some crazy endings. The dogs have gotten me this far, so I'm gonna use them one final week.
Patriots 28 Jaguars 20 - Patriots (-7.5)/Over 46.5
Eagles 21 Vikings 10 - Eagles (+3)/Under 39
Come watch the conference championship games at the all new Palace Station Race & Sports Book, and may all your parlays cash!
According to Facebook activity (or inactivity), it seems that Joey is still sleeping (who is still sleeping before 7:00 a.m.?), so instead of waking him up to ask if he wanted to change his score to align with the Jags, I'll go with this for now... Pete likes the Jags even more than Joey, but they disagree in the NFC...
Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 2-6/Overall 21-52-3)
Jaguars 24 Patriots 21 - Jaguars (+7.5)/Under 46.5
Vikings 21 Eagles 17 - Vikings (-3)/Under 39
I had a rough go of it a week ago, and I don't have any idea what's going to happen this week (seems like the theme for this season... :D). Here's my two cents though...
Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 1-7/Overall 39-35-2)
Jaguars 27 Patriots 23 - Jaguars (+7.5)/Over 46.5 - I think there's a good chance that the stars align against the Patriots on Sunday. The temperature is forecast to stay above freezing, which should benefit the visiting Jags. Brady has something going on with his hand, which has the spectre of the Garoppolo trade looming in the air. The coordinators may/may not be distracted with future job opportunities. There's just a lot of STUFF going on, and a Jaguar team that would like nothing more than to shock the world...
Vikings 22 Eagles 16 - Vikings (-3)/Under 39 - The weather doesn't do the home team any favors again, as it's supposed to stay above freezing for the dome team from Minnesota. The Vikings really put the brakes on a very talented Saints offense with a Hall of Fame caliber quarterback, which makes me wonder what's in store for Foles and the Eagles.
And that's all we've got for you. Again, remember that our picks are for entertainment purposes only. Enjoy what should be an intriguing day of football Sunday and we'll see you again for the Super Bowl. :)
