Sports Plays Of The Day

AFter going 4-4 including going 0-3 in BEST BETS(5-13) my figure has dropped to plus 150 pigskins I am back today.

Lay the 6.5 on the Bears at home against the Lions.  Mack is back and they will pound on Stafford all game long

Lay the 16.5 on the Chiefs at home against the Cardinals.  No one has been able to stop the Chiefs offense and neither will the Cardinals

Take the Jets laying the 7.5 at home against the Bills.  Matt Barkley is playing QB.  Nuff Said

Atlanta is playing better.  If they want to be seriosus players this year they must win today.  Lay the 5.5 on the Falcons in Cleveland.

Saints know they have to keep winning to get the top seed.  Bengals will be without AJ Green which is a huge loss.  Lay the 5.5 on the Saints in Cincinnatti.

Oakland has mailed it on and want to make sure they get the top pick.  Chargers are rolling.  Lay the 9.5 on the Bolts in Oakland.

Rams have been flirting with disaster for a few weeks now.  Maybe this loss wakes them up.  Lay the 9.5 on the Rams at home vs the Seahawks.


Jags are playing for the season today.  Fournette is back which should help out alot.  Take the Jags getting 3 on the road against the Colts

After two tough losses on the road the Pack comes home to face Brock and the FIsh.  Impossible spot for Miami today.  Lay the 10 on the Packers at home.

Dallas is floundering and you would think they would just feed Zeke.  But now they have to justify the Amari Cooper trade.  Eagles are bout to get rolling.  Lay the 7.5 on Philly tonight at home vs the Cowgirls.


On the ICE. System Hockey


Take the Panthers at home vs the Senators

Take the Sharks at home vs the Flames

College Basketball

Take UCONN at home laying 13.5 against UMKC

Sports Plays Of The Day

After a 6-5 day raised me to plus 150 golden domers I am back with another 12 plays today crossing 3 sports.  So here we go.

I am not a believer in the Dolphins.  I don’t really believe in the Bengals either but I am going with the home team today.  Lay the 6 on the Bengals at home vs the fish.

It’s dangerous when you expect nothing from a team like I do with the Jets.  But rookie QB and a bad head coach makes me pick Denver despite their flaws.  Lay the point on the Broncos at the Jets.

Raiders should have lost last week and usually the Chargers lose these kind of games early in the season but this year they are winning them.  Lay the 5 on the Bolts at home vs the Raiders

I guess you keep riding as team until they derail you.  The Rams look unstoppable this year especially on offense.  The Seahawks have no defense and their offense is shoddy at best.  Lay the 7.5 with the Rams in Seattle

Lions are just not a good team but will play tough at home vs Green Bay.  The Pack is getting points so that is what I like.  Take the Packers plus 1 in Detroit to win outright

This is a case when you expect nothing from a team and they surprise you.  That is today with the Giants.  Take the Giants getting 6.5 in Carolina to win outright.

This is a watch the fireworks pick here of the over in this game.  At 57.5 this is as high of an over as I could remember for an NFL game.  Pittsburgh plays no defense and the Falcons have so many defensive starters out they can’t stop anybody.  Oh and both teams can really score points.  Take the over of 57.5

In an odd couple of picks I am going with two hockey teams that lost last night to rebound and win tonight on the road

So take the Rangers to win at Carolina for a NY sweep

Take the Maple Leafs to win in Chicago.

I thought this series would go 5.  That was my prediction.  The Brew Crew won the first 2 games at home and now the series switches to Colorado.  I like the Rockies bats to wake up and have one of those old fashioned slug fests today in Colorado.  Take the Rockies to win at home vs the Brewers and also take the over at 9.5.

I picked the Dodgers to win this series but I felt the Braves would play better than this.  Maybe some home cooking will help them out.  I like the Dodgers to close this out tonight behind Walker Buehler in Atlanta.

NFL Week 4 One Liners

Bills—The Packers lumped them up pretty good.  Makes you wonder where that Vikings game came from.

Dolphins—You didn’t think they were going to go undefeated.

Jets—Everyone sees now that Todd Bowles is a terrible head coach

Patriots—Back on track again?


Bengals—Possibly a playoff team?

Browns—Browns games certainly are interesting this year.

Steelers—Time to panic in the Steel City?  Bell to return a distraction?

Ravens—Maybe they are just a very good team.


Colts—Please get Andrew Luck some help.

Jaguars—Marone stuck it to the Jets for past issues.

Texans—Wouldn’t Le’Veon Bell look good on this team

Titans—Solid start.  Must get Mariotta on track.


Broncos—Tough loss on Monday night.  Case Keenum needs to be better.

Chargers—Typical Charger performance against a team they should beat easily.  At least they won the game.

Chiefs—OMG.  If the Jags can’t stop this team then no one is going to.

Raiders—Chuckie gets his first win.  Can’t believe how good Mack is playing?


Cowboys—Can beat the bad teams.  Can’t beat the good teams.

Eagles—Super Bowl hangover continues.  Could easily be 0-4.

Giants—Giant mess has the fans looking at college prospects.  OBJ about to blow?

Redskins—After 4 weeks Skins in first place


Bears—Are the Bears for real?

Lions—Patricia could be the last Belichick assistant to get a head coaching job.

Packers—How bad is Rodgers knee?

Vikings—Staring at a 3 game losing streak this Sunday at the defending champs.


Buccaneers—Winston is back but won’t be able to save the season.

Falcons—Can’t even spell Defense right now.

Panthers—Time for the Panthers to make strides in the conference.

Saints—If not for FitzMagic Saints could have a stranglehold on the division.


49ers—CJ Beathard is playing for his football life.

Cardinals—Let Rosen take his lumps and build for the future.

Rams—My god did Goff shred that great Vikings defense.

Seahawks—Earl Thomas just proved why NFL players hold out.

Sports PLays Of The Day

After a brutal day of going 1-6 to drop my profit to 50 leprechauns I am back with 6 NFL picks and a couple of MLB picks.  Let’s start with the NFL.

Last week no one thought the Vikings would lose at home to the Bills.  This week we have the same scenario with another AFC East team.  But the Jags are coming off a bad loss and will be angry.  They will pound on the Jets golden boy QB and win this game easily.  Lay the 7.5 on the Jags over the Jets.

In two words.  C J Beathard.  Chargers two losses are against two unbeaten teams.  Lay the 10 on the bolts at home vs the Niners

This is more of a bet against Fitz Magic and the Buccaneers.  The cracks started last Monday night and continue today against a  better defense.  Khalil Mack has been dominant as a Bear.  Lay the 3 on the Bears at home vs the Bucs

Can’t see the Pats losing 3 straight and also can’t see the Dolphins go 4-0.  Only question is will the Pats cover the 6.5.  This is one of those convincing win days that we see the Pats have over the years.  Lay the 6.5 on the Patriots over the Dolphins

I like the over of 52.5.  Saints Defense has been no existent this year.  The Giants might have found something.  Yeah the Saints are different outside of the dome.  But I can see both teams score in the 30’s today.

With the Atlanta offense clicking and their defense so banged up I do see a very high scoring game here between the Falcons and the Bengals.  Take the over of 53.

Kudos for MLB for having all games start at the same time today just so the drama is kept.  We have 4 teams playing for the division.  With all 4 in the playoffs there is a little less drama.  But winning the division keeps you away from the one and done wild card game.

This would be my one sure fire lock.  The Tigers are playing out the string.  The other games are big rivalries and the Nats I feel will play hard.  Take the Brew Crew to beat the Tigers at home.

And the Cubbies will beat the Cardinals who won’t lay down and just because I want to see a one game playoff tomorrow.  Take the Cubs at home over the Cardinals

The Nats will play this one hard.  Although Scherzer should pitch today and he is not.  Very disappointing.  The Rocks have been not and win this one at home vs the Nationals

So that leaves one more team to make a second one game playoff tomorrow.  Not so fast Lee Corso

If you don’t think the Giants will go all out to derail the Dodgers from winning the division your not paying attention.  The Giants beat the Dodgers in SF.
