Kelso Bowl Season and NFL Crunch Time!
I don’t care if you bet $100 a unit or $1:
I WILL MULTIPLY YOUR MONEY FASTER THAN YOU CAN COUNT BECAUSE I WIN NFL CRUNCH-TIME AND THE COLLEGE BOWLS BIGGER THAN YOU CAN DREAM
From now to the National Championship Game Monday, January 7th
There are 40 College Bowls on tap, 48 NFL Regular season games and counless College and NBA basketball games…
- Bowl Games are Inter-Conference games, so betting lines are NOT sharp. Big market teams get overpriced. Quality small-market teams are shunted into lesser bowls. Once-a-year bettors and "alumni" come out in droves, and drive up the price on "their" team, and we get points going the other way! It's the easiest winning of the year!
- In the NFL, understanding motivation plays an outsized role. Last season during December Crunch Time I was at my BEST...28-13-1 down the stretch, and plus 710 units!
- Basketball numbers are flawed, as the Oddsmaker focuses on his football handle while my preparation gives me the edge.
Monday Night Preview - Super Bowl Race Tightens
Hey, do you know anyone out there in the wagering world that had a Miami Dolphins / Oakland Raiders money line parlay in Sunday's NFL Week 14 action?
If you do, they're likely still sipping champagne after those crazy tilts - note the Dolphins were + 350 and the Raiders were + 425 - in their respective 34-33 and 24-21 wins against New England and Pittsburgh.
It only seemed that every NFL game on this past Sunday's card was won by the dog - and there were, as the headline says here, seven different outright pup winners including: Indianapolis (+ 4) over Houston, Cleveland (+ 1) over Carolina, the New York Jets (+ 4) over Buffalo, Miami (+ 9) over New England, San Francisco (+ 3) over Denver, Oakland (+ 10) over Pittsburgh and last night's bare-knuckle 15-6 win by host Chicago (+ 3) over the Los Angeles Rams.
Still, the proverbial bottom line here is that NFL Week 14 Betting Favorites somehow escaped with a 6-9 ATS (against the spread) mark while heading into tonight's showdown between the Minnesota Vikings (+ 3.5) at the Seattle Seahawks and so - for the year - NFL Betting Favs now are 91-105-7 ATS with 4 Pick 'Em games tossed into the mix and that's a lowly .464 winning rate for NFL chalk sides this season.
