  • Congrats sir pigs.  Keep the roll going.

  • You guys ever have friends ask to bet for them? i've had two of my married buds ask in the past week if they could put money on a game through me.

    good or bad idea?
  • #1753 by widespreadsooie on 02 Nov 2012
  • I think I've solidified my picks for Saturday:

    UF -17
    Wake -3.5
    Indiana -1.5
    Bama -9.5
    K State -9.5

    I know they're all favorites, but I prefer making up points with the better team (usually) than trying to hang on to 'em with the lesser of the two.

    My picks have changed:

    UF -17
    A&M -7
    OM +14
    Bama -8
    K State -8.5

    It's normally a good thing for me if I find this many SEC games I like.

  • Kent State -20.5
    Clemson -13

    Always a bad idea.  Even worse if they win.  Creates a monster.  They will start pestering the poop out of you.

    If you do it anyway always money upfront including the juice.

    I agree. Make them man up and set up an account with a local or offshore. If they wanna tail your picks , that's one thing but don't make the bet for them.

  • thats what I thought. I had a guy throw 50 at me before MNF a few weeks ago. He was sitting at my table so I agreed. We both won the bet so I just paid him right there and was done with it.

    This dude wants to bet reeeaal bad but doesn't want the Mrs. to know.

    Then definitely no.  The time will come where he calls and says hey man play this for me.  He loses either gets the cash and wife finds out ( believe me your name will come up and will somehow be your fault like you lost money and he loaned you some)

    Just back away.  Or tell him to hand you 5 hundo or a grand and he can play anyway he wants till it is gone.  Also charge him an extra 10% juice on losses for your trouble.  Or if he makes a bet the opposite way you were gonna bet it just take the action yourself and don't say anything.  If he wins you pay him what he won. 10% less than had you made your bet the other way and lost.  If he loses you pocket the cash plus the 10% juice.  Key is cash upfront unless you know for sure he will pay.

    Lol I pretty much know most of the angles my man.

    I did have a couple of bets that I didn't post on here, one was a parlay for the above 3 that hit and paid $1200 on a $200 bet, and I lost Arizona +3....1*. I didn't post the parlay because I don't count it in my totals, and I didn't list the Zona play because I didn't have time to post it before the game, and didn't remember to post it till about midnight last night.

    Theres a chance for it to be a monster year if the last 2 months shake out.


    Also, Louisville -3 may be another 5*, but for now I'm locking it in at

    Louisville -3....3*

    Not a whole lot to look at this weekend.

  • I've gotten lazy posting my picks. But you guys know me and my year-after-year mediocrity. I'm not fooling anyone, ha.

    The cfb picks I posted on Friday for Saturday's action went 3-0, but I ended playing 4 more games that I didn't post that went 2-2.

    I didn't post any nfl picks, but went 1-3 today . . . imagine that, picks not posted that did not go 17-1.

    I know you complemented someone else earlier on their season, but 20 games over .500 and 59% isn't too shabby yourself.

    Thanks. I'm having a good run over the last month. I was hitting around 50% before this run. Like you said, the last two months have the potential to be huge.
  • #1792 by DadVader1 on 05 Nov 2012
  • Likewise, I locked in a few last night:

    SCe -13.5 v. Hogs (10 units)(I wanted to get this while it was below 2 TDs)
    GA -15 @ Aub (4 units)
    OM -2.5 v. Vandy (2 units)

    I'll probably add more to either GA or OM later in the week.

    [EDIT] Added 5 more units on OM -2.5 (bought the hook to get it back down to 2.5)
  • #1793 by widespreadsooie on 05 Nov 2012

    Lock of the year came back in September when Vegas had Bama at -19 against the Hogs...bet more on that game than I had ever bet on a single wager.

    Oh what a terrible night. The eagles blew so many chances.

  • Even if it was the lock of the year, I could never root for the hogs to lose.

    I understand your POV. When I've bet against the Hogs, it has been with money I frankly hope to lose (sounds silly, I know). The bet is made w/ my brain, not my heart. I can therefore easily set aside the conflict of interest and cheer for them same as ever. But I can see and understand why people would absolutely not bet against their team.

    Well said.  That is the approach I take.  I analyzed the games for this weekend, picked a few games that I thought were my best plays, and the Hog game was one of them (and, yes, it had to overcome the additional hurdle of me generally not wanting to bet against them).  Here are a few of the factors that brought the game to the top of my list:

    (1) general gut feeling after watching both teams play - lean SC
    (2) general gut feeling about which of the SEC lines for the week looked a bit off - lean SC
    (3) SC (No. 5 scoring O) v. Ark (no. 11 scoring D)(all stats are SEC Only) - lean SC
    (4) Ark missing another LB from an already weak D - weak lean SC
    (5) Ark secondary's ability to improve Opponent's passing game - lean SC
    (6) Spurrier at home vs. JLS on the road - strong lean SC
    (7) SC (No. 1 in sacks) & Clowney vs. Tyler getting hit repeatedly by Tulsa - strong lean SC

    I hope I'm wrong!  I will pull for the Hogs no matter what and understand why many folks would not bet against their team.

    I don't know. With mjd out and Indy getting better each week, this seems like an easy Indy win. Jax only getting 3 at home speaks a lot. I need to run some numbers to see which way I go but the prelim says Indy by 6
