Love the Saints -4 (buy) & Lions +7

Really? I wouldn't touch the Lions with a 10 foot pole.

My favorites are the Dolphins giving 3 to the Bills, Indy giving 2 to Houston and the Falcons giving 2.5 to a Dixon lead Steelers team with a healthy and motivated Michael Turner.

Philly +3 looks to be the best bet of the week.

I'm gonna wheel them in the following 2 team, 6.5 point teasers......

Philly +9.5
Lions +13

Philly +9.5
Denver +9

Philly +9.5
Clev +9

More to come.

Dolphins haven't won in Buffalo since 2003. Their whole team has been looking like total **** this whole pre season. They only managed a FG against 2nd, 3rd, and 4th stringers when they played Dallas (against their 1st stringers).

See Buffalo last year? Remember that game with the Patriots? IN NEW ENGLAND.

Bears don't look that good. You have way to many favorites to hit that parlay of yours. Your book is just like thanks for the ten spot.

The Lions are no joke this year and the Bears are trash. Chicago's o-line is in shambles and you saw what Det's d-line is capable of. Quitler is good for a pick or four and his happy feet are busier than normal because of his lack of confidence in that line.

Stafford looks to me like he's going to take a major step forward this year. He looks like a different guy as far as confidence in the pocket. His improvements from last year to this year are comparable to Ortons, imo. Best also impressed me in the little I saw of him.

I am also going to hit em up on the moneyline.

+1.

Bears didn't play in the pre-season finale either. They haven't gotten their offensive execution on point as of yet.

Let's not forget that shiny new CB of theirs now...

I like Jim Schwartz a lot. I also like Stafford. And I like how it's a team of young, talented players.

That being said, the Bears are going to skull f them on Sunday.

Of course they are they love people to bet Parlays. It's hard enough to consistently pick one game right let alone more than one and they pay a lot less than the real odds. Betting is always for fun but you might as well try to win if your going to do it.

its fun to do parlays, i used to do $5 10 game parlays, because the astronomical odds of ever winning are there, but just the chance, when you hit 6-7 games in a row, makes it fun. if you lose, no big deal.

With Kolb over GB?!?!?!?!?

Yup....I'm on this one out of pure feel & instinct.

Line opened at Philly -1 and has been run up all the way to Philly +3 b/c of GB's pre-season performance & hype.

Joe pub is still hammering GB -3 at an 80% clip but it's going to be closer than most think.

I will have some pizza & beer money on Philly ML as well but I'll take the teaser points to + 9.5 & move through key numbers of 3 & 7.

Philly is a tough place to play for anybody & I'll side with the home dog here and be on the side most books will need.

GB -3:

I know you can use Visa All Access Net Spend gift cards to fund poker sites, anyone know if the sports betting sites take them as well? Its a good way to budget your gambling money, get around the blocks on bank accounts, and not have to give out your bank info to a site.

You probably have to send them copies of a bill with your address, DL and Passport. Takes awhile to process while you sweat out giving your info to shady operation.

Rev....If you're going to take shots at a big payday, skip the 12 teamers.

Find some home dogs you like. I just put this in for 72-1 and I really like each teams chances. (Not to say I like my chances of hitting this, but each play on it's own is doable)

Miami always struggles in BUFF & looked like trash in NFLX

Public over-reacting to Rapist suspension, no way should a TEAM like Pitt be a home dog opener

Indy with big time OL issues, now or never for HOU

Philly is my best bet of the week as mentioned earlier, big time trap on GB

Shanny in a home opener vs. division rival getting +170? GTFOOH. Added value since it's vs. "America's Team"

Not a chance in hell this hits but if you're going to take a shot, this is how you do it. Also, if the day games happen to fall my way, I've got hedge options for the night game.

Ok baller...Keep chasing that 600-1 when....

A) You run the risk of being capped. Many square books have a max single play payout no matter what odds were offered.

B) If you hit one of these at a square book, good luck collecting. You will get slow payed to death, if not outright screwed.

If you want to get away from the bodogs, sporstbets & betus's of the world let me know. Teaching is my passion.

I wouldn't touch that one but that is just me and I don't claim to be an expert but SF has had pretty good success against seattle of late. I kind of like the under 37 but don't love it.

I like Det +6.5 @ Chi

AZ -4 @ STL A rookie qb's first real start usually isn't very sucessful

and the over 48 tonight.

My first three teamer I put in was Miami, Detroit, and SF.

GB and Philly at this point I think is really a toss up. Can Kolb keep pace with GB if it becomes a shoot out? I dont think he is there yet.

I got in on tonight's games. Luckily it's at BetPhoenix and I signed up under a special with some silly turnover rates so I don't have a clue how much I still have to do. I figure I'll either turn it over quite a bit or strike out and not worry about it. Just money left over from March Madness last year.

Anyways, tonights bets:

Saints -4 1/2 at -118 (We'll call this 1 unit)
Saints -6 at +105 (.4 U)
FG or S first score at +155 (.25U)
Saints -1/2 for 1st Q at -105 (.4U)

I expect Favre to not be ready so I think Saints take this one away.

Det, Hou, and Cincy are all games that I'd love to take but it's a true gamble. I thought about dumping my whole bankroll on NO tonight just because I don't like betphoenix and really would like to end that account but decided against it. I had more faith in the NO line than I do in any of those others. Just too much change to make those calls this early in the season.

Im betting against my Lobos again this week. That 72-0 rout @ Oregon last week was the easiest win of my life. Hoping the TT Red Raiders roll em here (-24) in ABQ Saturday night as well.
