Editor's Note--Forget about "Frankenstorm" that's about to grab the East Coast of America, Big D just smashed his NFL pick last night, AND has come that much closer to a HUGE World Series longshot play. He had a tough time of it last week in the NFL, but he's started off 1-0 this week. Maybe he wont give just his customary 3 picks this week, could there be a fourth?!? And what about the baseball, sir? As we sit on top of the catbird seat, once again, while mere mortals look at us in awe. Again. What say you oh rosemary and sage?!?--R.B.
We are proud of how both the TAMPA BAY BUCS and the SF GIANTS performed last night but we got more work to do. Wood to chop. Let's address the baseball first, then the NFL.
The guy who has been really pitching lights out recently for the GIANTS? VOGELSONG. The Tigers aint hittin boys and girls and monkeys. SF's worst pitcher lately? BUMGARNER. He mowed the Tigers down last night like he was Cy Young his damnself. The Tigers are approaching "neeeeeeeeeeed the game" status. You know what that means. We neeeeeeeeed to take the other side. SF GIANTS +130 on Saturday night to get that much closer to a sweep. Take.
In the NFL, wanna guess how many times in a row the underdog has covered in the old school Chiefs vs RAYYYYYYYDUHS rivalry? 9. And 15 out of 16!! Guess who the underdog is on Sunday? Da RAYYYYYYDUUUHSSS. Big comeback saved their season last week in OAKTOWN. kc doesn't know who the right QB should be. Yet they lay 1.5. Take pal. Take.
Whenever you see the G-MEN these days on the road, they are worth a look. Now they are at Big D. How bout them Cowboys??, havent been relevant since that statement was coined almost 20 years ago. Yes, the GIANTS are a slight favorite but they play well in Dallas. Lotta NYers making the trip to "Jerry's House" to root their team on. Lay it pal. Lay it.
Finally, not one, but TWO, bonus plays. First in the baseball. If the GIANTS of baseball win on Saturday, take them again on Sunday vs Verlander for the sweep. Some of you thought Big D was nuts to take SF in the first place, you'd be a fool to think that now. Take. AND in the Sunday night NFL clash, IF you go at least 1-1 in the afternoon (OAKLAND/NY GIANTS), take MR DREW BREES and his SAINTS +6 @ Denver. This one smells like a field goal game. Too many points pal. Too many.
So the happy recap: Saturday night: SF GIANTS+130 @ detroit, Sunday: OAKLAND +1.5 @ kc, NY GIANTS -1.5 @ Dallas. BONUS plays on Sunday night: SF GIANTS + ? @ Detroit (when SF is up 3-0 in the series), NO +6 @ denver (when you go at least 1-1 during the day).
Good luck and god bless and what kind of fool is going to go against Big D now that you see what is happening thus far this week? Speaking of.......I've got my outfit picked out for Sunday. His outfit wiseguys. His.
