11/3 NFL Preview, Bets, and Parlays

Well we are past the halfway point of this season, the trade deadline has come and gone, and teams are gearing up for the stretch run.

Chicago at Philly

Chicago is currently a 5.5 underdog on the road in Philly. Bears have been on a skid lately, much due to the struggles of Trubusky. Eagles have been hot and cold all season but are still in the divisional hunt in the NFC East.

Game Picks

  • Eagles -5.5
  • Over 41.5 points
  • First TD Scorer Philly D/ST +1800 or Miles Sanders +1400

Washington at Buffalo

Washington has moved it’s eyes to the future and are sending our Dwayne Haskins for his first career start. In limited action this season Haskins has compiled a stat line of 12-22 140 yards 0 TDs and 4 INTs. Fully expect the Bills Defense to eat the young QB alive today.

Game Picks

  • Under 37.5 Points
  • First TD Scorer Josh Allen +700 or Frank Gore +650

Minnesota at Kansas City

Patrick Mahomes is inactive again today. Even with Mahomes, the Chiefs have been shakey at home this season with a 1-3 record in Arrowhead Stadium. Vikings march into Kansas City on a 4 game winning streak. They seem to have hit their stride and I don’t see Matt Moore doing much damage to this Vikings Defense.

Game Picks

  • Vikings -5.5
  • Over 46.5
  • Vikings -3 First half

Parlay of the Day

  • Colts ML, -105
  • Bills – 11.0, -105
  • Buccaneers and Seahawks Over (51.5), -105
  • Lions ML, +120

Bet $20 win $307.45

Good luck today everyone!

I’ll be enjoying the games today with a Pug Ryan’s Dunkel. Check them out!

Saturday College Football Picks

We have a lot of action going on this weekend and I see potential to do some damage.

First up we have Wisconsin at Ohio State. Badgers are coming off their first loss of the season with a shocking defeat at Illinois. Clearly the Badgers were looking forward to this weekend’s match up and forgot to show up last Saturday. Wisconsin is much better than they were last week so I LOVE LOVE LOVE these guys getting 14.5 points today. Badgers have a nasty defense and Ohio State has yet to play anyone of note. Looks for this to be a low scoring tilt, so the under could be a safe play as well, under 47.

Next up the battle in Baton Rouge, LSU vs Auburn. I think Auburn is way overrated. Their best win was a fluke TD in week one. Meanwhile LSU discovered offense is part of the game and have been laying waste to everyone in their path. Look for LSU to carve up their Tiger counterparts and cover the 10.5 in Baton Rouge.

Lastly, for all of you who like big spreads, check out Boston College at Clemson. Currently sitting at 34.5 points. Boston College is terrible, “how bad” they lost to Kansas buy 3 touchdowns AT HOME! Clemson is trying to prove they are the best in the country so look for them to drop a 50 spot on BC today.

Gonna have some Cold Snacks today while I we wait for the snow storms to hit tomorrow.

Thursday Night Football Bets

Well here we are almost through another week. So lets make some money and have fun tomorrow! Vikings are taking on the Redskins tonight for our weekly prime time game.

Thursday has featured some lopsided victories and I do not expect tonight to be any different when the Redskins stroll into Minneapolis to take on the Vikings.

Currently, the Vikings are 17 point favorites. Redskins are a poorly executed 2 point conversion from being 0-7, good job Miami. Look for the Vikings to get up early and just coast into an easy victory tonight.

I like to get things started early. I am gonna start the night with Vikings -4 in the first quarter. Going with that I like the over in the first quarter at 7.5. Vikings might do that on their own.

Also the over/under tonight and that one has me slightly worried. Currently sitting at 42.5. This game has the chances of sitting right under that, so the under is what my gut is telling me.

Pizza is on the way and gonna enjoy the game with some Sam Adams Octoberfest (yes thats how it’s spelled on their website).

NBA Season Preview

We have the new NBA season upon us and what a wild off season it has been. Kawhi Leonard won Finals MVP with the Toronto Raptors then packed his bags, grabbed his passport and joined the Clippers. Russell Westbrook was traded to join his former teammate James Harden in Houston. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving joined forces to crush what was left of the Knicks hopes and dreams to join the Brooklyn Nets. A lot more happened but I’m in no mood for a dissertation.

NBA Title Favorites:

  • Los Angeles Lakers+300
  • Los Angeles Clippers+333
  • Milwaukee Bucks+575
  • Philadelphia 76ers+750
  • Houston Rockets+850
  • Golden State Warriors+900
  • Utah Jazz+1300
  • Denver Nuggets+1800
  • Boston Celtics+2500
  • Brooklyn Nets+2500
  • Portland Trail Blazers+3500
  • Toronto Raptors+3500
  • Indiana Pacers+5000
  • New Orleans Pelicans+6000
  • Miami Heat+6600
  • San Antonio Spurs+6600
  • Dallas Mavericks+7500
  • Orlando Magic+12500
  • Atlanta Hawks+15000
  • Detroit Pistons+15000
  • Minnesota Timberwolves+15000
  • Oklahoma City Thunder+15000
  • Sacramento Kings+15000
  • Chicago Bulls+20000
  • Memphis Grizzlies+20000
  • Washington Wizards+20000
  • New York Knicks+25000
  • Charlotte Hornets+30000
  • Cleveland Cavaliers+30000
  • Phoenix Suns+30000

We have the usual suspects like the Lakers, Bucks, Rockets and Warriors at the top of the list here. This year unlike past years, we don’t have a team we can pencil into the Finals right now. Warriors took a hit when it was announced Klay Thompson would be out for the season with the torn ACL he suffered in the Finals this past summer. Defending champion Raptors cruise down to the middle of the pack with the loss of Kawhi to the Clippers.

Two teams in particular could turn into great value bets come the post season. Denver and Portland. Both teams have superstars in Jokic and Lillard and have plenty of talent to compliment them. If you are one who likes to make futures bets now, those two can give you great value.

World Series Game 1!

We have made it folks. Game 1 of the Fall Classic is in Houston starting at 8:08 ET.

Current Odds:

  • O/U: 6.5
  • Washington: +170
  • Houston: -195

Starting Pitchers:

  • Max Scherzer: 2-0 1.80 ERA
  • Gerrit Cole: 3-0 0.40 ERA

This World Series features the biggest underdog since the 2007 Rockies. So if that has you swayed towards betting Houston, I wouldn’t blame you one bit, but there is always the “what if”. The glimmer of hope for Nationals fans/betters, the Astros hit .179 as a team in the ALCS with some VERY timely hitting. Sup Altuve? Does that trend continue?

One bet I particularly like is the UNDER tonight. Just looking at the Astros abysmal batting average vs the Yankees and the Nats coming off a long break.

MVP Odds:

Cole: +700

Verlander: +750

Bregman: +1000

Altuve: +1000

Springer: +1000

Correa: +1200

Scherzer: +1300

Strasburg: +1400

Rendon: +1500

Obviously being such heavy favorites, the Astros have half the team favored for World Series MVP. If you like betting favorites, you cannot go wrong with Altuve or Cole who has been nearly untouchable. If you believe in the Nats, the only way they are winning is because of Scherzer or Rendon. Scherzer has one appearance out of the bullpen this off season, only one inning but it shows they are likely to go to him on short rest. Rendon is the hot bat in the lineup hitting .414 this post season with a dinger and 13 RBIs.

I’ll be taking in the Fall Classic while drinking a Classic Coors Banquet. Cannot go wrong with that Rocky Mountain Water.
