So... yeah... anyone betting this weekend? I haven't made a thread yet because I've yet to see anything I like out there. Anyone got good opinions on the game or money laid down? I'll probably get on some props at some point but just not loving anything.

I guess one place to start is SD. SD favored despite being without Floyd, Gates hurt, I think I heard Matthews hurt.

However, they was saying on one of the Sirius shows that Brady is 3 and 7 on the road in the last 10. Still, I think it's NE. Opinions?

Yeah, I took new England in that one. I also took steelers -3 and niners -3

Just started reading some opinions and the fact that SD plays so well at home was kinda forgotten. That said, I'm still having issues with their receivers. Who in the world catches the ball for them? Gates apparently will be a gametime decision and Crayton was once pretty decent... but... still...

I put some money on San Fran and NE. Wanted to put money on Washington vs. chicago at +3, but couldn't pull the trigger.

That SF game has got to be one of the hardest out there. SF is terrible and they're laying points on the road? That's so hard to justify.

I thought about that and I wasn't sure, but I think that San Fran's ground game will work pretty well against Carolina. If Chicago can run for 200 yards against them then anyone should be able to. Carolina has nothing to offer on the offensive side of the ball either.

Oh, absolutely agreed. It's a showdown of incompetent offenses. I considered the under to avoid making the call but they have that set at 35. Ugh.

Good luck with it. Someone will win. I'm just not confident I could pick who.

OK, final plays for the betphoenix bastards is Philly +3, ATL - 3 1/2, and Seahawks -6 1/2

Just hopped on NE/SD under 47. I don't have confidence in SD to score but hopefully they can keep NE from scoring as well.

I will what's Oaklands record past couple years in Denver and how do rivalry games usually turn out? Dogfights. BTW Russel was the Q and whoever is in there now out of the 3 is better.

looks good on paper, however Denver never seems to play well against SF, also factor in it's in London w/ no home field advantage. I'd leave that game alone or put money on SF so if Denver loses it doesn't sting as bad

The ONLY thing that maks me hesitant is the old "too good to be true" line.

If Denver doesn't smack the living daylights out of SF, I'll be amazed. Maybe they're REALLY liking SF's running game against the Denver DL?

10-23-2010, 03:44 PM
Alright, Bodog props are up so I got on Kolb over 250 1/2 at -125, Mathews without a sack for +165, and Jared Allen without a sack for +165. I put my account on these three to see if I can dig out of the hole that the QBs going down last week left me in. We shall see!

Never have, myself.

Any option should be good though. Books are trying so hard to compete that it seems they're all doing better. A big name book like Bodog can get away with more that a smaller one can't but they still have to be decent.

Agree... seems to be a really rough week.

The only ones I like are New England, Bengals over Falcons, Steelers, and Rams. All 4 are road teams...

That One Guy
10-24-2010, 02:26 PM
Wow. 16 to 10, going into the fourth quarter, and Kolb already had 210-220 yds passing. We end the 4th quarter with Philly gaining an additional -6 yards and giving up 27 points.

F me. Some of these games I get on just turn out insane.

Well done. Another reason to hate betphoenix, they don't have 1/4 of those options. Quite rare you even get so much as a halftime line.

I hit well in the afternoon games with $100 on each of Sea, SD/NE U 47 1/2 (thanks for blowing that kick!), and I hit my ATL bet this morning so I'm ahead just a smidge. Now, the question will be tonight.

Not sure if I posted it but they were offering Jared Allen and Clay Mathews each at +160 for Under 1/2 sack. Allen has one on the year and Matthews is just coming off injury. If they both strike out, it'll be good for over $500 payout ($200 in, $320 profit) so it's just a matter of winning that bet. I gotta be honest, I have no idea why they're offering those so high. I wanted to chase my losses from last week though and they were my best options. If only one gets a sack, I still come out slightly ahead. I'll be watching and hoping.

Umm... Did you put your mortgage on that?

Not that SF is any good as they lost to who I think is the worst team in football... but after today's game, you have to wonder if that line will go up some.

hell yeah best of luck

I'm on this for that game

Wow. That one was rough. Once, Matthews has Favre wrapped and Favre just sidearm slings it at someone's feet. Another time, Loadholt tries to rip off Matthews head when he would've creamed Favre.

Rooting for a bet that can literally lose on any single play is nervewrecking too.

Either way, cashed in and Bodog account is saved again. If that Philly game hadn't crumbled, I'd have cleaned up today. Lots of fun anyhow, on to next week. Anyone got an idea on the 49ers line after the games today?

I went 0-3 yesterday with the fiasco in the Pitt/miami game. The overturned TD cost a cover. Plus made bad mistake of putting good money on a bad San Fancisco team. That is a cardinal sin in gambling. I pin pointed the Saints early on as the team that you don't want to bet on then I do something stupid and take a garbage team with idiot head coach. uhhh

Tough breaks. They do happen though.

I'm gonna start getting more picky with my picks. I still have to burn through money but I'm gonna make sure it's on the back of solid teams with solid kickers.

I ended up something like $300 in the positive yesterday but the $250 lost when the Eagles collapsed still killed me. Just goes to show that you just never can count your money until it's in your account.

Just gotta get back on the horse and pick some winners.

I took Bryant (+170), Williams (+130), and Austin (Even) to score TDs. Figured Romo would throw multiple and the odds were decent.

Bryant gets two to put me a few bucks short but it sure wouldn't hurt if someone else would get one.
