    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 6

    The stars finally aligned last week, as we came away with our first perfect weekend of the season, and fourth consecutive winning weekend to open the 2011 NCAA Football schedule.  Alabama and Stanford both reminded us all why they are still among the elite programs in the nation with  sizable victories against Florida and UCLA, […]

    2011 Weekly NFL Locks: Week 4

    Things were looking great for the New England Patriots and terrible for the Detroit Lions through the first half of each of those games last week, but that all changed in the second half, as the Bills mounted an incredible comeback victory over Tom Brady and company, while the Lions were able to march back […]

    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 5

    LSU is quickly becoming our favorite team to bet on, as they continue to win and cover the spread in the process.  As for Clemson, their victory over Florida State showed that they are a force to be reckoned with in the ACC.  Unfortunately for us, Oklahoma was unable to make a statement against Missouri, […]

    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 4

    Michigan State disappointed last week as they were on the wrong end of Notre Dame’s much-anticipated ‘breakout game.’  Thankfully, we had both Oklahoma and Stanford to cover in Saturday’s evening slate.  That resulted in us coming out on top for the second week in a row to open the season.  This week’s NCAA schedule has […]

    NCAA Football Weekly Locks: Week 2

    Welcome to our first annual “NCAA Football Weekly Locks” post for the 2011 NCAA Football season.  We decided to take week one off so that we could get a look at all of the teams and gain a better idea of what to expect heading into week two.  We believe the extra week off has […]

    Chad Ochocinco Plays The Shell Game On The Streets Of Miami (Video)

    With the NFL lockout still in effect, Chad Ochocinco has searched for other ways to make some money.  His first plan involved a tryout with Sporting Kansas City of the MLS.  When that didn’t work out he took his talents to the Professional Bull Riding circuit, where a 1.5 second ride atop of Deja Vu […]

    Billy Walters Is The Lord Of Gambling (Footage From 60 Minutes)

    Will somebody please get me the number and address of Billy Walters! When it comes to sports gambling, or gambling in general, this guy simply does not lose.  And when he does lose, he makes up for it by winning more the next time.  Has he had losing days?  Yes!  Has he had losing weeks?  […]

    9 Sports Gambling Terms Every Guy Should Know

    On Monday, when your friends are regaling you with their stories of wagering on feats of athleticism, you needn’t sit there like a wallflower, smiling and nodding. You should have at least a functioning vocabulary of gambling terms so that you can criticize your friend’s decisions in hindsight. That’s not something you want to miss […]

    9 Worst Excuses to Give Your Bookie

    Ho ho ho! ‘Tis the season for gambling debts. Between tonight’s BCS Championship game and the NFL playoffs, fortunes will be won and lost in the next three months. (Spoiler alert: lost) The smart move is not to gamble, but “addiction” means that you don’t listen to nonsense like that, so come armed not with […]

  • 2010 NFL Weekly Locks: Week 6

    2010 NFL Weekly Locks: Week 6

    Last week our picks fell victim to the excruciating last-minute touchdown.  The battle between the Bengals and the Bucs appeared to be headed under the 38-point total.  However, a late mental-lapse by the Bengals defense, and some great grabs by the Bucs’ receivers, helped Tampa punch home the game-tying touchdown with only 52 seconds left […]

    2010 NFL Weekly Locks: Week 2

    Week one could have gone better for us, but it also could have gone worse.  The Tennessee Titans won their game against the Raiders and left little doubt in the minds of gamblers from the start as they easily covered the six-point spread.  Things looked to be equally going well for us in the battle […]

  • 2010 NCAA College Football Pick’em: Week 3

    2010 NCAA College Football Pick’em: Week 3

    Week two was not all that friendly to us as the Florida State Seminoles were blown out from that start against the Oklahoma Sooners (at least we didn’t put $27.500 on the game), and the Miami Hurricanes fell just short of covering their +9 spread.  However, we did manage to cash in on the Michigan […]

    Picture Of The Day: This Bet Cost Him Some Cash

    This poor sucker who put $27,500 on the Florida State Seminoles at +7.5 against the Oklahoma Sooners can’t be happy.  Sure, he wasn’t the only one who thought FSU would be able to keep things within a touchdown and cover the spread, but we weren’t stupid enough to smash our mortgage on it. Look at […]

    2010 NFL Weekly Locks: Week 1

    It is finally here!  After seven long months of waiting we have finally made it to week one of the 2010 NFL season.  And that means it is also week one of every gamblers five month trip to paradise.  It is never easy to make predictions on week one games because there is little to […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 14

    Week 13 set us back a bit as our picks went 1-3.  The Patriots got off to a great start, but an early 14-0 lead was not enough as their late collapse would lead to a 22-21 loss.  The 49ers were equally disappointing, surrendering a late field goal to the Seahawks which would eventually be […]
