Editor's Note--Well, I didn't have a great showing in the "Fall Classic" Horsie Tournament in Vegas last weekend. Nope. No magic winners. Speaking of......back by popular demand.....
But at least I got some football winners! The man who doesn't have to use the word, Abracadabra, or any other words for that matter, when it comes to his picks, is here now. Fresh off a 1-1 baseball Friday, a 1-1-1 Saturday, and a 2-1 NFL Sunday, and he missed NFL perfection by 1/2 a point!!That's 5 of 6 NFL Winners! Is he flaming hot?!?? He is. And here he is....
Well, Richie, tough luck in the horsie tournament. Next time. Nice video/song above. Tough luck in the football, preventing us from completely blowing the doors off, and settling for just a regular winning week. We don't like settling. Here are the pickeroos.
In the exciting baseball, maybe Mr. Kershaw can finally have a great outing. We like that he is on 7 days rest. Maybe not enough to win, but enough to keep it low with the Cubbies in LA LA Land. UNDER Saturday.
In the college football, SOUTH CAROLINA looks awfully sneaky getting a "mere" 3 points at Tennessee. The Vols have trouble covering the spread again this year. SOUTH CAROLINA is better. Tennessee Tuxedo indeed. Take.
One of our favorite conferences, the MAC, has an interesting showdown. The ZIPS of AKRON are getting 14 points at western michigan. Sure, western mich is the "top dog" in the conference, but we will take the "top underdog". ZIPS baby. The points work.
Finally, in another sneaky SEC matchup, TEXAS A+M gets "only" 3 at Florida. We think the wrong team is favored again here handsomes. AGGIES plus the points.
Oooooh, we thought we were going 3-0 again in the NFL. Again. Still. The BILLS just missed for us. But on to Week 6.
Did we have Monday's newspaper on Sunday last week? No we didn't. But is all of NY (maybe the world?)talking about Richie's J-E-T-S being a playoff contender? Yaaawwww damn right they are. Just like we said. So now "big bad" Tawmmmm Brady comes to the swamps of Jersey laying 9.5?! Really? Bad JET teams have played better Pats teams better than 9.5 points baby. New England has had trouble in Jersey lately, too. GANG GREEN 4-2 and in 1st place more than 1/3 of the way thru the season? It could happen pal. It could happen. The 9.5 points? A gift. Please take the gift.
Remember how we said da Bearssssss were/are nice and boring? Well we did. And they are. And we won with the UNDER. Now they go down to Baltimore. The bookmaker tries to scare us with 39.5 points? Not low enough handsomes. We will go UNDER again with the newby Bears QB, and a more healthy Raven defense.
Finally, we aren't sure what Arizona is, but they dont seem to like to score or win. Tampa didn't exactly set the world on fire at home versus the porous Pats defense. Now they go on the road. 44.5 is the total? Cards are UNDER 4 of 5. Make that 5 of 6. UNDER.
The "no magic, just man at hard work" happy recap: Saturday Baseball: UNDER LA Dodgers/Chicago Cubs, Saturday Football: SOUTH CAROLINA+3 at Tennessee, AKRON+14 @ wmu, and TEXAS A&M+3 at Florida, Sunday Football: NY JETS+9.5 vs New England, UNDER 39.5 Chicago/Baltimore, and UNDER 44.5 TB/Az......
Best of luck. God bless. Speaking of man at hard work.....how about Men At Work?!? Of course. Are these old home videos of you Richie? Are you gonna play football this year?! Be good. Enjoy.
