Pats’ Belichick Proves He Is NFL Genius Of Geniuses
Weekend Injury List For College, NFL Football Quite Long
50-Unit Game Of Week Winners Set For Saturday & Sunday
By Kelso Sturgeon
I have been deeply interested and involved in football for so long names such as John Unitas, George Allen, Bobby Bell, George Blanda and even Vince Lombardi are but fleeting memories. That confessed there is no doubt in my mind I will remember forever the name Bill Belichick, an absolute genius National Football League coach, who makes miracle wins so commonplace it is easy to overlook the fact he may well be the greatest coach in the history of professional football.
The latest example of his brilliance came last night when, without his top two quarterbacks and forced to start a rookie who had not played a down, crushed the supposedly revitalized and power Houston Texans, 27-0. I admit I went against him, figuring the NFL’s third ranked defense would devour rookie signal-caller Jacoby Brissett (3rd round draft choice out of N.C. State). Instead, Belichick came up with a detailed and adjusted game plan that could win and in the process make the Texans look like a disjointed high school team.
If this were the first time this had happened I would dismiss it as an accidental win produced by some major goof by an opponent. There was no goof—just a game plan that made a win possible and an all-out bad-ass performance by a team that showed up and recorded its first shutout win since 2012 and in the process handed the Texans their first shutout loss since 2003.
There is a reason Belichick, whose father was an assistant football coach and scout for the Naval Academy for 34 years, in his 17th year with New England is 212-78 straight up and 162-121-7 against the spread and those numbers include four wins in six trips to the Super Bowl. Not bad for a guy who got his start as an assistant coach under Baltimore’s Ted Marchibroda, receiving the grand salary of $25 per week.
Today Belichick is the second highest paid coach in the NFL, taking home $7.5 million each season, behind only Sean Payton ($8.0 million) of the New Orleans Saints. Kansas City’s Andy Reid also makes $7.5 million year.
Pay him $10 million and he is still underpaid, especially when compared to the-sky-is-the-limit contracts for most NFL coaches who should be making the minimum wage.
There are few words to describe just how good he is and even “NFL genius of geniuses” does not do him justice.
Kickoff Your Football Weekend Friday With 100-Unit Winner. When You Absolutely—ABSOLUTELY—Know You Are Right, You Have To Take A Stand To Make The Big Money And I KNOW I Am Right On This Game Tonight
When I first saw the betting line on one of tonight’s three college football games I did not believe it and assumed it was a mistake. I waited an hour or so for it to be corrected but it was not and still stands today. My first thought was to release this game as a 50-unit play but after more study I said to myself, the number is so wrong on I must offer it as a 100-unit play or turn in my license.
I have no idea why this betting line is what it is but my figures are predicting the win by 2-3 touchdowns above the number and I am going for the money with a 100-unit play. Win this bookmaker’s mistake for just $50, charged to your major credit card.

Money Move On Louisville And Total In Duke-Notre Dame Sending Signals to Handicappers
There are always going to be conflicts over what appear to be significant money moves in college football. For instance one must try to determine if the the sharps are manipulating the number to win a “middle” or are legitimately back a team. You will have to decide for yourself for what it all means for Saturday’s games. Each game that signals line manipulation will be marked with a bold-face (M).
- (M)—Michigan opened at -16 over Penn State and is now -18. Laying the 16 and taking the 18 opens the game for a middle, if it falls on 17.
- Massachusetts opened +23 against Mississippi state and is now +21.5.
- (M)—West Virginia opened -5 over BYU and is now -7. Laying the 5 and taking the 7 opens the door for the middle of “6”.
- Louisville opened -24.5 at Marshall and is now -27.5.
- (M)--The Duke-Notre Dame total opened 52 and is now 61. Use your imagination.
- Troy opened -17.5 over New Mexico State and is now -20.
- (M)—Washington opened -11 over and is now -13. The middle of 12 is in play.
- (M)—Nebraska opened -6.5 against Northwestern and is now -8.5, opening up a middle on “7”.
- (M)—Tennessee opened -8 over Florida and is now -6, leaving open the key number of “7”.
Middles are a major tool in the betting menu of most sophisticated bettors. Their value, if you hit one, is that you get 20-1 for your money because you win both bets. For instance, let us say you bet $110 on Florida taking the opening 8 at Tennessee and then come back with the line more and lay the -6 for another $110. If the game falls “7” you collect on both bets, winning $200 and risking but the $10 vigorish because it is impossible to lose both bets.
