Editor's Note--Well, a loss in the baseball, a sweep in the college, and a back and forth NFL, is what we say last week with Big D. The baseball is over, the college and NFL football are in full swing, and oh something about the Super Bowl of Horse Racing begins in a few hours!! What's that?!? Breeder's Cup? Now this is my kinda party baby. Greetings from beautiful Del Mar, California where everyone who is someone is here....A-listers, D-listers, hoi polloi, billionaires, millionaires, and of course, our own BigDick! Let's not waste anymore valuable time. 3 college picks, 3 pro picks, and a slew of horsie picks await us all. Right about now....R.B.
Well Richie, no luck in the baseball choice, PLENTY of perfection in the college ranks, and for some of you a 2-1 weekend in the NFL too. Let's see if we can't improve upon that record for all the marbles. And money.
We will give our college plays first. You can't improve upon PERFECTION now can you handsomes? But you can equal it. Thus TEXAS A&M at home getting 15 vs Auburn looks like fine money, SYRACUSE getting a sneaky 6 at our favorite punching bag florida state (no wins vs the spread ALL year!), and VERY good IOWA STATE getting a "mysterious mere" 2.5 at west virginnie, all put us in a solid position to go 3-0 again!
In the NFL, we really liked the OVER in the Houston/Indy game. Now Watson got hurt for Houston. So they dropped the total. Now? We LOVE it!! Hahaha! OVER 46 Houston/Indy. In the "midseason stink bowl" let's go with UNDER 39.5 in Arizona/San Fran, and because it's the highest total on the board let's try OVER 52 in the KC/Dallas showdown!
Now the horse racing.....The 6th thru 9th races at beautiful Del Mar Thoroughbred Club today begins the 2 day extravaganza known as the Breeders Cup....the Super Bowl of Horse Racing baby! Let's cut to the chase.
Race 6 5:25pm eastern/2:25 p.m.Pacific--If the #15 RETRO somehow gets into this race? We bet her at 20-1 to WIN. If not, we go with an #11 RUSHING FALL-#12 DIXIE MOON exacta box. One favorite. One longshot. Giddyup.
Race 7--#8 ACCELERATE should be the class of this field. But his price will reflect this. Let's sprinkle in #7 CUPID and #1 IRON FIST for some real cash. 1-7-8 exacta and tri box.
Race 8--Let's go with some East Coast flavor on the West Coast. Shall we? We shall! #2 UNTAMED DOMAIN #8 VOTING CONTROL #12 HEMP HEMP HURRAY. 2-8-12 exacta and tri box, and when this wins, you will be filling out forms for the IRS...
RACE 9--We will go to the lower priced horsies, now that we have collected a ton. #4 ABEL TASMAN to win. #4-#6 FOREVER UNBRIDLED exacta box.
Now you are enjoying your Friday evening champagne and lobster?!? Tomorrow tune in for the other 9 magnificent Saturday races!! Good luck to all and god bless! Now to the beverage cart. Oh and this song. The 2nd stanza of course....
