After a huge tie against Stan Perry in Thursday Night Men’s League I’m starting to feel my fortunes turn. It’s times like these that you have to trust your instincts and throw caution to the wind by betting way more than you can afford to lose.
This weekend brings us a veritable smorgasbord of opportunity. NBA Finals, college football, NFL, MLB playoffs. There’s money to be made everywhere. Are you gonna take advantage? Or are you gonna go to the pumpkin patch with your wife and kids and pose for pictures sitting on hay bales while everyone else gets rich? It’s your choice.
Let’s make a couple picks.
Texas is back…like a herpes flare up. Don’t be surprised if Coach Tom Herman has his resume on Indeed.com by halftime. Give me the Sooners (-2) to win by double digits.
Half the Sun Belt has Covid but nobody cares anymore. Give me Texas State (+7) against Troy.
Amy Coney Barrett isn’t the only Catholic on a mean streak. Notre Dame (-21) in a romp against the hapless Florida State Seminoles.
The Chiefs are running roughshod over the AFC West yet again. KC is 23-2 in their last 25 against divisional foes and Vegas already has them off the board to win the division. It’s a big number but Mahomes has a knack for padding his stats late with a garbage backdoor cover TD pass. Take the Chiefs (-11.5) at home against the Raiders.
Teams tend to rise to the occasion when Romeo Crennel gets the interim tag. Texans (-5.5) against the Jags.
Huge test ahead for the Cinderella of the NFL’s trailer park beauty queen contest. The Browns are 3-1 and host Indy in a big time litmus test. Are the Browns for real? The answer is no. Give me Indy (-1.5).
If you’re physically located in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or West Virginia, you can now make your sports bets with FanDuel, and they’re giving you a $1,000 risk free first bet.
