mah picks for the week:
just went for 5 on 5
Minn -7 over NYG(I would rather see the giants win but Minn is too strong to bet against)
Jacksonville -1 over Houston
NE -3 over Pitt
San Diego -6 over Oakland
San Fran -1 over Chicago

did some college this week too...testing something I read where double digit dogs playing at home are 21-5 over the last 3 weeks
NC +22 over Miami-FL
Indiana +20 over Minn
Miss +20 over Auburn
OK State +14 over OK
Colorado +15 over Texas

you're betting against UT? There's only one time a year when I'd consider that. Damn OU.

Go Pitt and Washington.


I am. However according to the useless information, In order for who I want to win the election, the Skins have to lose.

HA! I just heard about that on the radio at lunch.

You should also go out and buy a whole bunch of Kerry Hallowe'en masks.

that seems like a system that is going to work less the further you get into the season.

just trying it this week...it is pretty impressive that for the last 3 weeks, teams playing at home that are underdogs in the spread by double digits are 21-5:cool:

:eek: what are you talking about?!?!


In conservative Columbus, OH, you aren't allowed to trick or treat during the weekends (Friday or Saturday) and aren't allowed to do it during the Sabbath.

So the options were Thursday or Monday.
