    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

    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

    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 […]

    Be it buying squares in your office Super Bowl pool, entering a bracket for March Madness, or even betting on a few random NBA or NFL games, most people gamble on sports to some extent. Heck, even I have some DONKY friends who like to gamble sometimes.  The problem with gambling is the same problem […]

  • TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 12

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 12

    Week 11 will be forever known as the week we moved above the .500 mark, thanks to a 2-1-1 record.  Our underdog picks were perfect as the Redskins kept it close the entire game, holding the lead throughout most of it before allowing a late touchdown pass to the Cowboys.  And the Titans, as we said, […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 10

    It took us half of the season, but I think it is safe to say we may finally have things under control after our second consecutive 3-1 week.  The Green Bay Packers were an enormous disappointment, losing the game outright to a lowly Bucs team, but not even that was enough to dampen our spirits […]

  • TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 9

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 9

    Finally it happened!  We had the breakout week we were looking for as our picks were an impressive 3-1 during week 8.  Had the Cardinals not tanked against the Panthers in an unexpected turn of events, we would have made it a clean sweep, but I guess you can’t have it all.  We were, however, […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 7

    Total Pro Sports – Should we continue in this direction, we may have to change the name of this segment to “TPS NFL Picks: Use At Your Own Risk.”  It was a disappointing weekend as we went  1-3 dropping us further below the .500 mark.  The Ravens offense was unconscious in the fourth quarter, putting […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 6

    Total Pro Sports – Another weekend.  Another .500 record as our picks were once again 2-2. The Vikings easily took care of the Rams and covered the large spread in the process, while the Cleveland and Buffalo engaged in an offensively-challenged game, which was great news for those who took the underdog Browns, like us.  […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 5

    Total Pro Sports – Week four was yet another .500 weekend for us as our picks went 2-2.  The Denver Broncos used a big play by Brandon Marshall to pull of the victory as underdogs, while the Giants dominated the Chiefs from the start and easily built up a large enough cushion to cover the […]

    TPS NFL Weekly Locks: Week 3

    Total Pro Sports – Week two was another 2-2 week with the underdog Ravens winning in San Diego the shootout between the Giants and Cowboys on Monday night easily going over the total.  Unfortunately the Dolphins could not hold on in the dying moments of a game they seemed to be in control of and […]
