See all that? That’s just a few of the wide receivers that I should be starting over my first round fantasy draft pick. Just a sampling of the other thirty two more productive options out there. Five are actually on the waver wire right now. I’m 2-2, and my fantasy “stud” can’t even hack a double digit point a week average? Do I honestly have to have a sit down with Eli, before tonight’s crucial matchup?
Oooooh, baby. Brady is back, and if you think I’m taking a single spread against this man for the rest of the year, then go right ahead in believing such nonsense. So, there’s your heads up people. ERF ALERT LEVEL 10 for all future Patriots lines. You’ve been warned for the Week 10 Sunday Nighter.
How many of you clocked my Week 3 at 4-2? Well done, but we went 5-1, actually.
Wait, you say? Weren’t you going into MNF at 2-1, and then the Golden Rule of the Domino Effect cost you a perfect night due to the SNF over hitting? Well, no. The only thing that can top The Golden Rule is The House Cross Over.
So, how many freshmen in here clocked my Week 1 picks at 1-8. Ok, now, how many sophomores had it at 2-7? Most of you? That’s what I suspected. Let’s review just the MNF Primetime Combo.
With the people having already taken the Sunday nighter, we knew the House was taking one of these two sides, right? I should see everyone’s head nodding, yes? Can ya hear me in the back! Hello?! Good. That should have been a given.
3-6. Brutal. Probably shouldn’t have gloated about the Labor Day run. Serves me right. In the words of the mother of the 41st President of the United States…”Don’t gloat…
I think me and Cam could both take a lesson from this insightful woman to heart. Hear her, Cam? No elaborate celebrating after every time the chains move. No premeditated dances you’ve spent an entire offseason choreographing in front of your mirror. No lame post game sideline group shots pointing to the left, right, and whatever other nonsense you have planned this year. It’s not likable behavior, it’s tacky, and it reeks of a rookie having never been in the end zone before.
Anyone catch the Panthers/ Broncos game on Thursday night? Good. Did anyone bet it? No, right? Why not? Because we don’t trust Thursday night betting trends, as I went over in our list of important lessons taught in SPORTSBOOK 101, correct? Well, you should have taken the BRONCOS +3(-125) without even hesitating a second. ‘How’, you ask? Wouldn’t taking action in that game fly directly into the face of the third lesson listed in my last post? Well, sort of.
See, that wasn’t really Thursday Night Football. That was the NFL Kickoff Game, which was the first chance for gamblers to take action on a relevant NFL game in seven months. So, much like a junkie going though withdrawal, sports gamblers can’t wait to collect on their first winner of the year, especially after such a long layoff. Which means, the betting trends had more action, or at least the equivalent of action that is usually bet on any given Sunday night or Monday night game. I probably should have clarified that in the SPORTSBOOK 102 introductory post, but I didn’t.
Now you know the difference between Thursday Night Football and a Thursday Night Kickoff. And just for future reference, I’ll add this rule: If Al Michaels is announcing the game, then you can trust the betting trends.
Let me begin by saying that if this is your first sports betting course I highly recommend skimming a few posts (NFL Sundays with SBJ & NFL Rundown with SBJ) from last year. Get very familiar with the SBJ NFL SUNDAYS GLOSSARY terms, which can be found on the home page search icon. I have a slew of high profile future sharps who rode with me for the entire season in our SPORTSBOOK 101 class, and I owe it to them to not regurgitate the same novice lessons we went over in the introductory course.
SBJ’s first go ’round as the Wayniac Nation gambling guru had it’s ups and downs, but the bottom line was that he finished up. And I have a secret that Vegas doesn’t tell you: that’s all that matters in the world of gambling, folks.
This is the Final Rundown. I keep thinking of that Europe commercial with the Final Countdown as I read this, so enjoy. This is SBJ’s final piece of the NFL season, so make sure to give him a solid sendoff.
One big Sunday night game, and one… well, nearly unwatchable Monday nighter… again. Seriously: Ravens/Browns, Cowboys/Redskins, Giants/Dolphins and now Lions/Saints. Who picks these games? Anyway, SBJ has picked the winners on these games and that’s all that matters. Read his article, reimburse those Hanukkah funds, and bulk up on some extra Christmas cash.
After a couple of rough weeks, SBJ was back in the driver’s seat last week in Prime Time. Pay attention as this week SBJ reviews his main lesson of the season — the importance of trends as we head to the playoffs.
