I laid low this year on my baseball picks. Only 2 picks.

  • NEW YORK YANKEES OVER 97.5 WINS - I do this every year. Basically I bet wtih my heart and not my mind...therefore I keep the wager low.
  • ATLANTA BRAVES OVER 82.5 WINS - This one really shot out at me. I think they are better than the Philadelphia, Washington & Florida. They can also play the Mets pretty tough.

  • So that's it. Now I just sit back and watch YES & TBS.

    NFL O/U
    Well, here are the Over / Unders on the total wins this year?

    ATL 8.5 - AZ 8 - BAL 8 - BUF 6.5 - CAR 10 - CIN 8.5 - CHI 9.5 - NYG 9 - WAS 9

    DAL 9.5 - PHI 8.5 - MIN 8 - DET 6.5 - TB 8.5 - NO 6.5 - SEA 10.5 - STL 7 - SF 5

    NE 10.5 - MIN 9 - NYJ 6 - PIT CLOSED - CLE 6.5 - IND 11.5 - JAX 9 - TEN 5

    HOU 5.5 - DEN 10 - KC 9 - SD 8.5 - OAK 6.5


    At first glance I don't think the Jets can win 7 games. Seems like a safe bet, either you push or win.
    The NFC East looks appealing. They have all 4 teams winning more than 8 games. Pick and choose here. Which means some under bets will look appealing. I would say Dallas under 9.5 and Philly under 8.5. All those teams can't win 9 or more games...can they? Well, of course they theoretically can...I just don't think so. Giants over 9 and win the division in my eyes.
    Any thoughts?

    MLB Season Bets
    These are my Season Bets:

    Cleveland +90.5 Wins
    NY Yankees +98.5 Wins (probably not too smart but my icon explains it)
    Baltimore -74.5 Wins
    Boston +92.5 Wins
    Cleveland Win Division
    Atlanta Win Division
    Alex Rodriguez to Win the Home Run Title


    Not nearly as much as last year. I just don't feel it as much this year. We'll see.

    SUPER BOWL XL
    Well, what's everyone doing?


    From ghostfaktory:
    Super Bowl Trends:
    Favored teams are 2-6-2 ATS in the last 10 years
    Of the 24 super bowls with an over/under, 15 have gone over.



    Here's what I have wagered on so far...

      •Pit -4
      •Pit to have more 1st Downs in the game
      •Hasselback first pass will be incomplete
      •Roethlisberger first pass will be incomplete
      •S.Alexanders first rush will be less than 4 yards
      •First coach's challenge will be by Seattle
      •Pittsburgh will have the highest scoring quarter
      •Last score of the game will be a FG
      •More than 3 FG's will be kicked in the game
      •Coin Toss = Heads


    I am very unsure about the O/U (47)...what's everyone else's thoughts / bets? Good luck this weekend to all...

    Washington Redskins +6½

    Carolina Panthers +½

    New England Patriots +1½

    Weekend
    Well, I went against myself and took Tampa Bay (-3) instead of Washington like I said I would and I lost $10.
    Then on Sunday I took the Giants (-3) and lost $20
    Finally, Sunday afternoon I put $50 on the over (46.5) in the Pit/Cin game and won that (didn't look good 3 plays into the Bengals first drive when Palmer was face down on the ground) but I won $48.20 on that so overall I won $18.20. Big spender huh!

    Welcome to Sports Betting
    I could not believe there was no community on here for Sports Betting. Please if you stumble upon this community, invite your friends.
    Interesting weekend for betting coming up. First off, the Giants. I love the -2.5 point spread. I have only had one person tell me they don't like the Giants in this game. I'm waiting to hear from ghostfaktory but he's been pretty busy lately with work and other stuff. My overall feelings on this weekend:
    Carolina @ New York Giants -2.5 = Giants -2.5 HIGH CONFIDENCE
    Carolina @ New York Giants o/u 43.5 = Over MODERATE CONFIDENCE
    Washington @ Tampa Bay -2.5 = Washington +3 LOW CONFIDENCE
    Washington @ Tampa Bay o/u 37 = Under HIGH CONFIDENCE (i see a 17-13 type game here)
    Jacksonville @ New England - 7.5 = New England -7.5 MODERATE CONFIDENCE
    Jacksonville @ New England o/u 37 = Over HIGH CONFIDENCE
    Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati +3 = Pittsburgh -3 HIGH CONFIDENCE
    Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati o/u 46 = Over MODERATE CONFIDENCE
