NBA, Sunday Bets.

Betting Picks

The first sunday without a real football game can have you feeling a little lifeless. The only real way to snap out of that funk is to place down a 7-way parlay on all of the remaining NBA games for the day. Since i feel as if I have missed my last 1000 bets on the Sixers, today is the day that I can actually win some money without jinxing my team. Let’s get to it. We will just be doing the spreads. If you want to know if you should take the Over or the Under… take the over and dont be a bitch.

 

Game 1: Milwaukee @ OKC, Bucks -1

Two of the best teams in the league, but this is an easy value bet. OKC ML at home will win you a couple extra dollars. I think they are the better team, and Giannis will not be enough to push Milwaukee past Paul George and Russ.

 

PICK: OKC +1

 

Game 2: Toronto @ Dallas, Toronto -4.5

This spread should not be close. The only reason it is close is because all of the teenagers in America are obsessed with Ariana Grande and Luka Doncic, and one of them happens to play for Dallas. Easy pick. Toronto -4.5. They are much better than Dallas and it will show.

 

PICK: TOR -4.5

 

Game 3: Orlando @ Houston, Houston -9

This is a tough game to pick. Orlando is a underrated team. They can give anyone in the league a run for their money, but end up short. 9 points is a lot for a team of Houston’s caliber. I just have to stick with my gut right now and take Orlando +9.

 

PICK: ORL +9

 

Game 4: Utah @ Minnesota, Utah -4

I hate Utah. The team, the state, the lake of salt. I also enjoy the Timberwolves. They have a couple familiar faces on their squad and a very likable coach. None of this matters though because I like money more than both of them. I will be taking Utah -4 because they are the more complete team and are hotter right now.

 

PICK: UTAH -4

 

*******Game 5: Washington @ San Antonio, San Antonio-4*********

LOCK OF DAY

Two teams that I couldn’t care less about. Also, in my opinion, the easiest pick of the day. SA -4. Washington is a dumpster fire right now, and the spurs still have the best coach in the league. He will take care of the horrible Wizards at home.

 

PICK: SA -4

 

Game 6: Miami @ New York, Miami -4.5

Both teams are not great, but Miami at least has a little something to play for. New York has players publically telling other players to pass the ball, another player being hunted by other countries while also getting benched by his coach. Take the consistent team over the young one here. Miami -4.5

 

PICK: MIA -4.5

 

Game 7: Phoenix @ LA Lakers, LA -7.5

Last game of the day and probably the hardest to choose. Lakers are not very good without Lebron, but Pheonix is one of the worst teams I’ve ever saw. 7.5 is a lot of points to give against banged up Lakers squad, but I think at home they will be able to take advantage of the easy matchup.

 

PICK: LA -7.5

 

Picks:

OKC +1

TOR -4.5

ORL +9

UTAH -4

SA -4

MIA -4.5

LA -7.5

 

Put $10 on that and the payout will be around $1000. Good luck.

MNF Lock of Week, Week 6

Betting Picks

Current MNF Record: 0-0

Total Current Record: Spread, 1-0. O/U, 1-0.

 

Bang bang. Last night was stressful, but we emerged victorious in the end. Well actually, the over was incredibly predictable and I don’t think I was nervous about that for even one moment. Moving on, tonight is another game that could really go either way. SF is obviously banged up, but they really haven’t been playing all that horribly. On the other hand, Green Bay completely depends on Aaron Rodgers and his injury prone body. So let’s see some picks.

 

Spread: -9 GB

O/U: 45.5

 

Picks:

Spread, GB

O/U, Over (I mean if you take under’s than you shouldn’t even bet)

 

Don’t ask, just bet.

Eagles, Give Me Amari Cooper… NOW

Eagles

Do I really have to explain myself? He is one of the premier talents in the league. You can argue all you want about analytics and how he only shows up for certain games, but it is obvious that when he steps on a field he gets extra attention from the defense and he is one of the fastest, most athletic players on the field.  Please let me explain why Amari Cooper is a great WR in a terrible system and why the Eagles would be incredibly stupid to not get him.

First of all, Derek Carr sucks. He is absolutely terrible. Yes. He had one good year and everyone loved him, but then again the same thing happened with Dak Prescott and he sucks too. So far this year, Carr has 7 TD’s and 8 Interceptions. My analytics people are telling me that this is, in fact, NOT GREAT. He is tied for the most interceptions in the league. Not only is he one of the worst starting Quarterbacks in the league right now, he looks kinda weird. I don’t know what it is but it may be that he has butthole eyes (Shout out Chaps) similar to Pete Davidson. Derek Carr Eyes1

He absolutely always looks like he is tired and I just don’t understand it. Can the Raiders not afford pre-workout because they pay their coach so much money? Even more so, why can’t he just borrow some of Gruden’s pregame Coke? Nonetheless, when you are looking at Amari Cooper and his stats, you absolutely must remember that Derek Carr sucks and always is tired.Derek Carr Tired.jpg

So, at this Wide Receiver position, you depend on a lot of things in order to get the stats you deserve. We covered the Quarterback, but you also depend on the coach. You need play calls that can help you get targets, along with getting touches in any way possible. Gruden is not doing a good job in getting the ball to his best WR and probably most talented player. It is not like they are trying to get him the ball and he is dropping it. Cooper, so far this year, ranks 48th in targets. He is behind newly fat (Welcome to the team), Kelvin Benjamin. What I am saying is, how is Cooper supposed to be the Elite WR he’s supposed to be, when his team does not even try to throw him the ball?

Next up, let’s just talk about the Eagles. Everyone wants a running back. Le’veon Bell, Lesean Mccoy, and pretty much any other running back that has Le before their first name (Philly loves French Running Backs) has been thrown in trade rumors with Philly. Why? Why do we need another running back. Think about it. We won the Superbowl because Corey Clement showed up and showed out. Good running backs are fun and all, but a lot of running backs are made by there offensive line. Look at the Steelers. Le’veon was worshipped as one of the best backs in the league, and now no-name James Conner has showed us that any fast strong guy can put up 100 yards and a TD per game in that offense. Smallwood is a good back in my eyes. I really think if he was given workhorse status, then he would be better than Jay Ajayi, and be known as one of the best RB’s in the league.

One more quick thing. Philly just won a Superbowl, right? I think I saw that in the News or something. So, what is the next step? Becoming a Dynasty. The way to go about this is to compare ourselves to other Dynasties and become them in our own version. So let’s take a look at the Patriots real quick. When the Browns put their uber talented, but underutilized even when on the field, WR on the block, the Patriots went right at him and got him. He is now one of their best offensive weapons. Why can’t the Eagles be like this. All that should matter when a franchise is as stable as ours is how talented a player should be. We should be able to trust and depend on our coaches to fix the rest of the problems and use the weapon to the best of his abilities. Just like the Patriots did. I can’t have the last sentence of a post be about the Patriots, so, Go Birds. GO BIRDS.
