    I'm putting out possibly the best bet I've ever seen offered at the casinos. It is a long term futures bet, but if you have the funds to sit on it I suggest you take it.

    The bet?

    Over/Under on the number of Win's by the Detroit Lions for the regular season.

    Bet the under 4 1/2 wins.

    Remember this is a team that went 0 - 16 last season, I don't see them winning 5 games this year.

    I'll be surprised if the casinos don't lower this line before the start of the season.

    Go Bengals....

    Cincinnati Bengals to the Playoffs anyone? Could be THEIR year!! Time will tell all....

    Skipper :celebrate

    P.S. I've finally dusted off my old Chad Johnson jersey. The Ocho, combined with Carson Palmer might have their best year yet, if we can only keep Palmer injury free. "WHO DEY"

    Two for two

    A friend of mine ask for my picks Thursday and Friday on the collage games. I told him Boise St. and Tulsa both covered the spread. Sure wish I had some money to make the plays...lol.

    Saturday I like:

    Penn St. - 28 1/2 - LOSS but not sure how? Penn St up 31 - 0 at half and doesn't score in the 2nd.
    Neveda + 14 1/2 - BLOW OUT LOSS
    Oklahoma St. - 5 1/2 - Lone Winner today

    Posted record 1 - 2, glad I wasn't betting...lol

    Good luck

    Hopefully Saturday hits for you...

    Sorry Bradley, hope tomorrow is better for you. By the way great to see one of the top blackjack players in the world posting back on the site.

    I miss hearing your stories. Anyone that EVER gets the chance to sit down and enjoy a conversation with Mr. Peterson I suggest you do so. I promise you will be impressed and entertained.

    I hope to be back on my feet in the near future and when I'm able to get back out to Vegas the first couple of rounds are on me my friend, (providing your in town of course).

    Tomorrow jump on Kansas BIG!

    Fell for the trap...

    Went 5 and 4 Sat. but fell for the trap on Florida - 29 1/2. Really though they would kill Tenn. Credit to Tenn. they played well, in few years they maybe back as a power.

    Didn't post any pro's, didn't care for the lines (glad lots of upsets this weekend).

    Midweek for college I like:

    Mississippi - 3 @ S. Carolina

    Missouri - 7 1/2 @ Nevada

    Will post weekend games later in the week.

    For the season a losing 6 - 6 record, hope to improve on that this weekend.

    Badger fan says

    Take Michigan State tomorrow. Two bad teams but WI is worse than the Spartans (even at home).

    The Lion Sleeps Tonight!

    Who says I won't go out on a limb? Take the "money line" bet on the Detroit Lions to win their first game in years (tomorrow) for a big payoff!

    Bad picks

    Wow my picks stunk up the place last weekend going 4 - 5.

    What was really fun was watching some of the picks blowing two score leads in the 4th quarter.

    No kidding, 1 and 4 in the pro's today and I thought my 4 and 5 in the college was bad. Last two weeks Rick's Picks have sucked. Deltaduke is right bet against my picks and you may be able to fund a few tournaments out of the deal...lol.
