"hundreds of hours of research"
There are 168 hours in a week, so each lock is studied for months leading into the season.
hay leisure remember my 14 hour nba mock draft thread :icon_rofl:
Memphis @ Ole Miss is such a ball scratcher... it is impossible to get a read on that game. The two starting QBs are transfers one starting RB is filling the shoes of one of the greatest RBs in NCAA history and the other is a transfer. Ole Miss is returns no starters on their defensive line and is going up against a powerful Memphis o-line yet their new starters are more talented than the previous ones. Ole Miss has a new o-coord new o-line coach new scheme but can that help their horrible offense with 6 new starters including two transfers at critical positions? This game is driving me fugging nuts my mind says Ole Miss but my heart says Memphis. Or is it the other way around? :icon_rofl:
Yah I know. I identified today as being a bad day to gamble so I just want action bets today :icon_mrgreen: All three games today are iffy :icon_shrug:
I'd be more impressed if you guys could go 7 for 7 doing ONLY top 25 vs. top 25 matchups.
For example, next week's Ohio St vs. Texas, ND vs Penn State, and tonight's FSU vs Miami game.
Games that feature two teams closely matched with one another.
Crowing because you picked Texas beat up on North Texas, or Clemson to beat up essentially a high school team (Florida Atlantic) by 40+ points each, isn't impressive no matter if they were favored by 30+ or not.
We're not here to impress you we're here to win money and real gamblers who take our advice would be impressed regardless once they have $$$ in their hands that virtually came out of nowhere :icon_banana:
Any idiot can win money by picking obvious mismatches.
The one who can do it with GOOD teams closely matched to one other gets a bowdown from me.
Yah do it like leisure says. I bet you can't even pick 66% or 2/3 right after a minimum of 50 games.
And why would anyone pick teams closely matched? The whole point is to turn the bet from a coin flip into a sizeable advantage. Chances are you'd go 11-1 maybe 2-3 times in your lifetime if you started gambling from this day forward :icon_rofl:
Ole Miss is going to win :icon_mrgreen: Sorry L, are we still buddies?
I need to see what the Baylor D can do though.
14-7 Ole Miss
I just don't like people jumping up and down patting themselves on the back for going 7-of-7 or 11-1 by picking easy winners.
I would feel the same way if Texas Longhorn fans guffawed about beating North Texas or Clemson fans gloating over beating Florida Atlantic.
Do it when it's difficult and you will get congratulations from me.
leisure let's make a game show out of it and sell it to the Playboy Channel. You send Slug and I to Vegas each with a $1,000 dollar bankroll and whoever has more money by the end of football season inherits the leisureworld mansion.
Point spreads are a crutch for those that have no nutsack.
Just do simple winner-loser. So, who will win tomorrow night's FSU vs. Miami matchup. Fugg the point spread. Who will win?
Who will win next week's Texas vs. Ohio State matchup. Once again, screw the point spread. Just who will win?
Same with ND vs. PSU and other matchups.
My picks for today on three team parlay:
Mem/Ole Miss over 39.5
Then you are an ***.
You probably also care more about gambling and point spreads than you do the Chargers.
So, if the Chargers were -10.5 versus a team, you'd bet against the spread, and therefore the Chargers covering it?
Yah GL let's hope the Kentucky D doesn't show up even tho Louisville has avg'd 56 points a game over the last two years at papa john stadium :icon_eek: . I also think TCU is overrated this year :icon_eek:
Rule #1 of gamblers anonymous is never bet on a team you associate yourself with.
...except if it's Chargers -2.5 @ Raiders :icon_rofl:
Raiders really suck... This is one bet I should get in on...
Is it a leisure lock?
