    While it is slow here with posting and resource issues...figured I’ll start a contest this week

    Pick 5 teams using point spread. We will tally after Monday Night Football. As long as the picks are in before game time Sunday...if you want Thursday's game, just pick it before game time.

    If there is interest, great. If not...no biggie.

    I'll put up the sheet each week. Pick 5 teams using the spread. We'll see who is the big kahuna after the season ends.

    My 5 picks...
    Colts
    Falcons
    Cowboys
    Raiders
    Bears

    If I told you that I knew you were going to hell, would you not, consider that a "mortal blow"? Actually, it's just a rumor. :D

    Thank you TD. Still 100% on my sports picks, as you know. :) I knew this one was a "lock" the minute the gun sounded. :D

    Well you missed a good one. A lot of good plays, sportsmanship was pretty good for the most part, not too many penalties, pretty clean game. :).

    The old saying: "It ain't over until the fat lady sings". However, I think the Bears will cover the 3 point spread against Tampa Bay today. Chicago leads 45-9 early in the 4th quarter.

    Your usual chicken shit comment, once you know the result. I'll bet you can call nearly 75% of the games, once they're over. You were a "solid" 40% with your picks, by my count, so I'll see you at the pawn shop TD.

    LOL...I never said it was easy money. In fact, I don't think it's a viable way to make money. Much like craps. You keep reading those stories though. No harm. The sports books know what they are doing with these lines. With your Dolphins pick....you didn't even have to worry about that. Could have been Dolphins +30. Still would have lost.

    I was actually hoping Mr. Boxingfan...who claims sports betting is "where it's at", would partake. He won't. He can't.

    You'll get another shot next week. I'll post the sheet this week.

    Looks like twelve4s will be in the green on week 1 (4). Kudos to him.

    I'm 2/2 so far, this week, can pull out a winner tonight, with a good pick. I got 12s at 3/1 with the one unplayed game. Could go 4/1. In the past I could only pick about 60% of the games, not enough to make any serious money, and there is a difference between "picking and betting". I read some shit about the Dolphins game, that I believe now may have been "planted misinformation" otherwise I'd never bet against the Pats at home, no matter the line. You gonna try to tell me YOU wouldn't have taken the Dolphins +30 pregame, I think you would. I'm gonna take the Chiefs tonight, but Denver is another team I don't like to bet against at home. Anybody that says sports betting is easy, is full of shit. :)
