    Week 2 results....

    1. basicstrategy777....(4-1) trying to go +60%, are ya? Nice pickings.
    1. MisterInside....(4-1) another solid week of handicapping
    2. von duck....(3-2) reverses last weeks 2-3
    3. yacraps....(2-3) well, better than last week
    3. Bases loaded (2-3) also better than last week
    4. Night Attack (1-4) someone did not eat his vegemite sandwich
    4. TDVegas (1-4) my peanut butter and jelly didn't work either


    Some odd games, IMO....tough picking again, for most. The obvious pick was the Patriots and they did not disappoint. No one picked them.

    -Raiders looked good for about 5 minutes
    -Giants look dead
    -Same for Redskins..penalties
    -Dolphins vying for Division I college ball....maybe
    -49'ers looking good
    -Bears, Falcons, Texans, Ravens squeeze out wins
    -Saints snake bitten on calls
    -21-0 too much for Vikings to overcome
    -Titans losers at home after a nice win...smh
    -Chargers with a lot of mistakes
    -Steelers lose Ben. Saints lose Brees. Both teams lose
    -Broncos coach looked like he wanted to cry

    I think we are going to see some ENORMOUS spreads and moneylines with the Dolphins this year. Someone just took a $3,500 wager to win $100,000 that the Dolphins go 0-16.


    So far, overall 31-38-1....Selling picks still not an option, although I have our web hosting site ready to go with BS777 as our featured "handicapper". $25.00 sign up. Fees will be disbursed only to the best. This isn't socialism. 10% to Jacob.

    Total results....

    1. basicstrategy777....(7-2-1) outperform
    2. MisterInside....(7-3) also outperform
    3. von duck....(5-5) kudos....on a job....done.
    4. yacraps....(3-7) always next week
    4. Bases Loaded....(3-7) Let's get it going!
    4. Night Attack....(3-7) No carryover from cricket or AFL?
    4. TDVegas....(3-7) Falcons shaky, turned an 0'fer into a 1'fer

    Week 3 sheet coming up. Good luck.

    A "safety", is a defensive back that plays inside the corners. :confused: I've seen plenty of lines that I know damned well, would not bring the money down even. I'll call them, when I see them, and we'll see. Will keep track of these calls on the side, but I don't expect to be perfect on these calls, like I was with "LOCK" bets, last season. 5/0 on called "locks", last season. :cool: Just for fun, we'll call this group, with a seemingly unusual lines, "FIXES" :). Now "VON FIXES"

    Is this MisterInside??....


    “A bettor at CG Technology sportsbook needs the Cleveland Browns to cover the spread on “Monday Night Football” to cash a $424 eight-team parlay that pays $74,000.

    Cleveland is a 6½-point road favorite over the New York Jets.

    The bettor hit the first seven legs of his parlay on Sunday: Rams (-2) and Under 52, Broncos (+2½) and Under 41, Falcons (+1) and Under 52½ and Raiders-Chiefs Under 53.”

    Can’t be right.

    I tend to think the online betting sites or offshore sites tend to offer “teasers” on their page in order for bettors to sign up and bet. My guess is that once you do and go to place a bet....the real number is shown.

    While Station Casinos odds can be a bit different than the Strip or Downtown....it’s negligible.

    When I go up to the window and place the bet....that’s when I get the true number.

    These are the current based on 9/10/2019...obviously before yesterday’s games and injuries, but you can see the divergence.

    Just when I was starting to like you, you give me a condescending explanation of what a safety is and remind us of your 5-0 record last year on your locks. And I'm gonna call my grandkids to find out whatever those lame emoji fuckin' things mean.

    Vegas Insider website. Updated today. My prior post from earlier today came from
    "Football Locks". The Pittsburgh change tells you that it was made after Ben's status
    was announced Monday morning.

    Yes, I’m not doubting these are their numbers listed....but my guess is that if someone goes to place a bet on an online site hoping for these numbers....he won’t get them when he hits the “bet $1,000” button.

    Bet $1 to win $300 on Raiders?

    It’s listed as bet $1 to win $60.

    It probably went up a bit after yesterday.....but maybe 1/100, if that high.

    You are the one that started this shit, with that stupid question, "how many games have a safety", after I said that a slacking safety, nullifies any defense. My point was that not too many people, need to be in on a fix. It might also be be considered, that one fixing a game, may not be doing so voluntarily. So, you remembered my perfect record huh? :) Now you better behave yourself, or you will be receiving no "VON LOCKS" :D That's the new name I've come up with for my "Locks" I hope you like it. :cool:

    Yep....imagine what the number will be when they play NE in NE.

    -26?

    Dolphins have become a real joke.

    Thank You, I'll be standing by, and try to answer the questions, but I'm not that much of a Detroit fan. :cool: -21 1/2? I wonder how many will be sucked in, by that extra 1/2 point? :confused: I predict there will be at least 4 "safety's" in this game, :)

    I do believe he genuinely thought you were talking about the safety position.
