NFL WEEK 7 - NUGGETS OF BETTING INFO FOR EVERY GAME THIS WEEKEND!
We can tell you that once you get thru 6 full games, the stats no longer Lie. Like Cards ex HC Green once said "They were who we thought they were". For anyone stunned the Broncos laid an egg last night, you simply are not watching these games or grasping that the stats are usually very true and tell a clear story on what likely will happen each week ahead. Turnovers are hard to predict and missed FG's too...and of course weather will play a factor in the next 2 months where winter will hit so many cities. Lots of losing bettors use: "team is due to win", where I say "team is likely to lose AGAIN" because they simply stink. There really is no amount of points to make a bad team give you "VALUE", as there are too many games on the betting board each week for you never to need to go bet on a really Bad team. I have said for years, "Good teams will still win on their worst games, and Bad teams have to play great to just ...
CHIEFS LOOK TO REBOUND OFF BACK TO BACK LOSSES AS THEY FACE RIVAL BRONCOS ON ROAD!
VEGAS BETTING ODDS: KC CHIEFS (-3) @ DENVER BRONCOS ~ TOTAL: (49 1/2)
Key Betting Line Movement update: Wednesday and early week showed KC (-3 1/2). All big bets on Denver so far to move line to (-3). Majority of bets on "OVER" the Total as line has gone from (48 1/2) to now (49 1/2), with Pinnacle already now at (50).
This is an interesting match up where we get to see a great Offense vs. a great Defense. Handicapping games on these short weeks is always a bit tougher too, as nobody can really gauge how badly many players got banged up Sunday and if 3 days is enough for them to be healthy enough to play at their normal levels. Not many people expected to see King Patrick (Mahomes) lose two in a row and struggle on Offense. But he did, and so now we know he is a mortal like all the rest. It's more fun to bet the "shining star" then the plug nickle, which in this game is the Denver ...
COLLEGE FOOTBALL BETTING INFO FOR THE NEW WEEK AHEAD (10-17/19)!
KEY "REVENGE" GAME SPOTS FOR THIS WEEK: (All 6 teams I mention are at HOME for this Revenge Spot on Saturday).
(Note: these teams lost last year and will surely remember that loss and all should be focused for this week's rematch game):
1). MIAMI HURRICANES: Lost to Georgia Tech last year (27-21). GT Offense will surely struggle greatly vs. a very solid #18 Miami Defense (allows only 78 rypg).
2). IOWA HAWKEYES: Lost to Purdue last year (38-36). Purdue did win last week with 3rd string QB, and the #82 Offense and #105 Defense. Purdue only rushes ball for 64 yards per game which will be very tough on the 3rd stringer and the Purdue Pass attack to go on Road and win at Iowa. Iowa's got real problems though scoring points as the Offense just looks terrible.
3). UTAH UTES: Lost to Arizona State last year (38-20). Utah comes in with the #10 Defense and the #25 Offense in the nation. Arizona ...
CAN YANKEES BE THE ONES TO END GERRIT COLE'S INSANE STREAK OF 24 STARTS WITHOUT A LOSS?
LAS VEGAS BETTING ODDS: GAME 3: HOUSTON ASTROS (-$1.55) ~ TOTAL: (7 1/2 RUNS)
Baseball has always been a streaky game, and we've seen some amazing ones over the years. But to see a Pitcher go out and not lose a start for 24 straight games, that is truly stuff for the ages. Houston Astros Starting Pitcher for Game 3 on Tuesday late afternoon in the Bronx, Gerrit Cole, has done something we likely won't ever see again. He is (18-0) in those last 24 straight starts, and now has at least (10) K's in his last (11) straight starts, with (135) K's in this sensational streak. His last start he went 7 2/3 innings with 15 K's and a win over the Rays. He is now nearly unhittable. He has all his pitches working and he now has hitters "guessing" on nearly every pitch. He has now reached a level of Pitching we see once every decade. He faced the Yankees once this season, in April, getting a 6-3 win ...
KIRK "STILL NEVER WON A BIG GAME" COUSINS AND LOTS MORE BETTING STUFF FOR NFL~WEEK 6!
Whenever I talk NFL, I love to make sure I make it know (again and again...lol) that the Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has never won a Big game. OK, so may say he has and I guess you could call his 5 wins in 31 tries vs. teams that ended the season with a .500 or better record as actually winning a Big game. Trust me his next big win will be his first ever. This guy has Madoff beaten by a landslide with how he has stolen over 100 million from Moron Owners.
Let's look at ole Kirk's season so far. Before last week, HC Mike Zimmer clearly knows his QB isn't that good and so he has tried to go RUN all he can. Less chances for ole Kirk to lose the game, like he did vs. the Bears, who also happen to be the only Top half of all Defenses he's faced. He's faced 4 bottom half Defenses these first 5 weeks and 3 are bottom 10. He is the 4th lowest Yards Passing per game, and 1/3 of that number is garbage time ...
MIAMI TRIES TO AVOID (0-3) START IN ACC PLAY vs. #20 VIRGINIA!
VEGAS BETTING ODDS: MIAMI (-2 1/2) vs. VIRGINIA ~ TOTAL: (43 1/2)
The #20 ranked Virginia Cavs travel to Miami on Friday night and look to stay unbeaten in ACC play (2-0 so far). Miami will look to avoid it's first ever (0-3) start in ACC play. Both teams come in off tough losses as they both shot themselves in the foot with 5 Turnovers. Virginia does come in off a "Bye" week, whereas Miami comes in off a game they fell behind 28-0 early to Va. Tech, only to tie the game at 35-35, to them allow a TD with 1:03 left to lose 42-35. Both teams come in with Top 15 Defenses (Virginia #13 and Miami #15) even though both allowed 35 points and 42 points in their last losses.
Virginia comes in with the #96 Offense, as they are a one dimensional team depending fully on stud QB Perkins. Last week vs. Notre Dame it looked like Virginia might pull off a huge Upset on the Road vs. a highly ranked team. But 8 sacks allowed ...
IT'S TIME NOW TO START TO ZERO IN MORE ON "BET AGAINST" TEAMS/QB'S THEN EVEN THE "BET ON" ONES!
Handicapping games has so many angles to look at and trying to follow 130 teams could make a person's head shake off. I'll try to help you here moreso with teams to look to "BET AGAINST" ahead or at worst just "NEVER BET ON" as there to me is no value usually anyway betting BAD teams, but no with half the CFB Season in the books, there is surely no value, nor any reason whatsoever to "BET ON" a good handful of teams. VALUE when betting on bad teams is rare and usually only comes when they play other bad teams. I watch a lot of tape and it's easy to watch the Bama's, Sooners, Buckeyes of the CFB landscape to see and know they all have great QB's. This first half of the 2019 season though to me has been one of the best I've watched and charted in years. Right now any one of 6-7 QB's could win this years Heisman. Now that we are into full Conference play we will see who can keep riding high ...
SATURDAY CFB LOADED WITH 3 OFF CHARTS MATCHUPS OF TOP RANKED TEAMS!
This is clearly a Saturday you don't want to miss as we have 3 fantastic match ups of ranked teams and all could decide a spot in the Final 4 Playoff at seasons end. What's even better their kickoff times are all spaced perfectly, with one noon (est), one at 330 (est) and then the last of the three at 730 (est). This is going to be one day to skip the errands and just watch College Football all day long.
Four of the six playing in these 3 games are ranked in the Top 10: LSU (5), OKLAHOMA (6), FLORIDA (7), PENN STATE (10). The two not ranked Top 10 are: TEXAS (11) and IOWA (17).
The Penn State at Iowa games pits two of the top Defenses in the country with Penn State's Defense (#4) and Iowa's Defense (#5). Their are 16 Unbeaten teams left in the country, with four of these 6 still yet to be beaten in this 2019 campaign. Those four are Oklahoma, Penn State, LSU and Florida. That unbeaten number must drop ...
WEEKDAY GAMES STAY PERFECT, CFB PICKS JUST MISS PERFECT WEEK, NFL THROWS TOUGH CLUNKER!
Well we can't seem to shake a trend this year. One side, either CFB or NFL Picks, from our "GAMEDAY PICKS" have done great, with the other not matching up.
Once again we were able to head into the weekend in Winning fashion, as we have yet to lose a Thursday or Friday game all year. That trend stayed in place with the Rams (+1 1/2) sneaking in a close cover, and then Temple/East Carolina - "UNDER" snuck in, not without a heart scare though in the final play. The winning carried over big time into Saturday's CFB card as we had a huge (5-1) day with a really sweet "Best Bet" winner on Ole Miss (-7), a very easy blowout winner. We hit both our "TOTALS" to keep the season Totals record at a fantastic winning rate. Unfortunately the NFL week 5 results overall weren't like CFB's great ones, as Sunday we went (0-3), also losing our "Best Bet" on Tennessee (-3). Was very tough to lose the Titans pick ...
