Editor's Note--Yep. 2-1 Saturday. 1-2 in the NFL. Brings us to 3-3. Again. Well, I think he's ready for 6 more plays AND some baseball! I think that shakes things up a little. And that's all we really need. A little shakin. So shake it. Don't break it, Big D. Gah head. Go for it!--R.B.
3-3 is correct, Richie. Enough about that.
In the baseball? Big one up at Fenway eh? Sale was/is the ace for the Sawx and Happ has been great for the Yanks. BUT, Sale has been on the DL two times this year, and hasn't exactly looked great since he's been back. He also did awfully in last years playoffs. Happ doesnt pitch so great at Fenway Park. These teams bash the ball around too. And have been going OVER a ton. OVER 7.5 in Beantown, baby.
In the college, where we came this close to sweepin all 3 last week, the TERPS of MARYLAND seem to be gelling quite nicely together after the controversy this summer. A nice 3-1 record as they march into Michigan. Michigan got lucky to win outright last week as a fat favorite. Welp. They're a fat favorite again. They lay 17.5 to the "TURTLE". Fear the TURTLE friend. Take the points.
Now let's go back to the MAC. KENT STATE aint so great. But is Ohio? The GOLDEN FLASHES can show up at home now and again. We think they will now. The bobcats lay 12 on the road? You sure about that bookmaker? We are too. Thats why we take home doggie KENT STATE.
Staying in the MAC, The ZIPS of AKRON are ZIPpin along so far. Miami-ohio is not. We will lay the 5, and that's no jive.
Now in the NFL, where we went a painful 1-2 (yes, we are looking at you COLTS!), we look to change it up with 3 road doggies. MIAMI stunk the joint up in New England last week. Got buried. Now they travel to Cincy. Cincy is also 3-1this season. We like the "bounceback theory" in the NFL. If a team loses by 30+? Try em the next week. Chances are very few others will. The FISH may not win, but 6.5 seems like a very FISHY enticement.....Take.
Is CHUCKY back? Now, no one is going to give OAKLAND a trophy by almost going 0-4 to start the season, and barely beating the Browns. BUT, a win is a win. The underdog in this series has gone 15-2-1 in the last 18 handsomes. The Chargers still have Rivers and the offense, but they seem to always leave the backdoor open for a nice cover for the underdog. Lotta RAYYYYYYYDUHHHH fans in LA still. 5.5 points work cause this one looks like it might come down to a FG.
Finally, on Monday night. Talk about a porous defense letting the backdoor open. The bandwagon is getting a little full with Saint fans, folks. This SKIN team did a fancy job on Mr Rodgers a few weeks back. They aint ascared a no Drew Brees. Plus QB SMITH is more than adequate. There's that 6.5 number again. We take the road team, yet again. WASH-ING-TUNNNN!
So the "7 lucky plays friday to monday action" happy recap: Tonight: OVER 7.5 Boston/NY Saturday: MARYLAND+17.5 @ michigan, KENT STATE+12 vs Ohio, and AKRON-5 vs mia-ohio. Sunday: MIAMI+6.5 @ cincy, RAYYYYYDDUUUUHS+5.5 @ la chargers Monday: Washington+6.5 @ New Orleans.
Speaking of jive, and what's going on? This song seems appropriate these days (and many others). Good luck. God bless. Enjoy.
