El Padrino's Weekly Betting Column

For the record my record is: 24-17-3
Not bad....onto the picks

College:

Cal (-8) over WASH ST.
I've been riding Cal all year. Outside of the loss to the Vols they have been very, very good. I like the kid Lynch, I like Longshore and I like the coach. Wash St. to me don't match-up well with Cal. We'll see. ($50)

GEORGIA (-13) over Vandy
I guess cuz the Dawgs got smacked by Tennessee last week that this line is low. Should be giving 18 or so in my view.

PENN STATE/Michigan UNDER 41
Sure this has a little something to do with Mannigham being out but also the Wolverines haven't really struggled yet and as much as I hate to say it. They might be a little due. Happy Valley is not a fun place to play in so I expect the scoring to be limited. Michigan wins though, 18-13. ($25)

Pros

Bengals (-5.5) over BUCS
This seems like a sucker bet for some reason. But I'll step up and be the sucker if it is. Bengals off the bye week and thrashing by NE come in to Raymond James Stadium to a Gradowski (not a bd qb) led Buc team that is winless. It's been moslty winless because of the defense not the offense. Where is all pro Ronde Barber or Derrick Brooks? ($50)

BRONCOS (-15) over Raiders
Someone told me this week, "You can't take the Bronos giving 15 this week".
Um, yes you can. 35-6, final. ($100)

LIONS (+1) over Bills
Iam is going to berate me for this pick but they are due for a win. They blew two games already and the Bills are not exactly world beaters themselves. What a crappy game to bet though. ($25)

RAMS (4) over Hawks
Always a 3 point game when these teams get together. Rams are rejuvenated and Hawks seem to have some flaws. Alexander is still out and with Haslett calling the defense the Rams might have an upset in them. (Before the Sports Douche taouted the Rams, I was all over them for my surprise team as well, fucker.) $50)

FALCONS/Giants over 42
I'm feeling it. Feeling a see-saw battle, feeling a Vick run or two for scores, felling a Plax fad and a long Tiki run. Just feeling end zone. ($40)

Just Teasing

Giants +15
LIONS +13
RAMS +15
SAINTS +15
($125)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Last night highlights:

Screaming "WEEEAAVVVEEERRR" pretty much all night
After the Beltran bomb it was over for him and the stadium KILLED him.

I'm sure if you wacthed the game on TV you knew it was super loud.
We made sure that the Cardinals felt as uncomfortable as a stick in your ass.

When Looper made his entrance he got the LOOPER SUCKS chant about 1000 times and almost gave up a few runs.

Pujols booed every at bat as if he were Barry Bonds.

"ENDY CHAVEZ" clap, clap, clapclapclap. After his web gem.

"JOSE, JOSE JOSE JOSE JOSE, JOSE, JOOOSEEE" soccer style chant.

Stadium swayed from side to side after the Beltran HR.
And this was only game 1 of the NLCS.

METS / TIGERS, no doubt in my mind.

Ohio State is giving 14 to MSU. I'd take Ohio State on that one.

temwr said...

and I am not a gambling mind by any means, but I would stay away from the Denver game.

Jake Plummer is involved and the Raiders can't really get blown out every week...can they? Well probably, unless they are playing Jake Plummer.

The Rev said...

Playoff baseball must be nice!

Stiggy said...

This is to anyone who watched the game on TV last night and who wasn't as lucky as EP to have been there. Does Tim McCarver bother anyone else as much as he bothers me. Good, god. I can't listen to that man talk.

Spaceman Spiff said...

if i can tease the denver game to -1 no way im staying away

Spaceman Spiff said...

Again, Gilbert Arenas is nuts

excerpt:When I get a new cell phone, first thing I do is turn it off and call from my house phone and leave stupid little messages to myself. Like: "It's me." "It's me." "This is Gilbert." "It's me." "It's Gilbert." I just fill it up, so no one can leave messages."

Spaceman Spiff said...

"On the road, I eat hamburgers every day. The team tries to get me to eat differently, but no. Burgers, burgers, burgers. I like burgers."

awesome

Spaceman Spiff said...

Entry 19 in that article is a classic, must read

The Rev said...

Tim McCarver is a knob!

The Rev said...

Every team needs a guy like Gilbert Arenas.

temwr said...

Teasing down to -1, yeah I wouldn't stay away either.

McCarver sucks with all capitals. He SUCKS.

I was also saddened to hear the line-up for ESPN's NASCAR coverage next year. It is going to BLOW. I know not everyone likes NASCAR, but if you look at that line-up everyone will agree it BLOWS.

Next monday I begin to research how to mute 1 person from a sports telecast and/or TV in general. I am going to make trillions off of this. If someone else invents it before me I will be sad for a minute and then happy as hell because I can then mute McCarver or Theismann, or the wife on American Dad.

The Rev said...

We should have taken up a collection here and bought it for ourselves.

Los said...

O.K. - who is worse, Michael Irvin or Tim McCarver?

To me, that question is like asking if it is worse to sleep with Rosanne Barr or Rosie O'Donnell. No correct answer.

The Rev said...

Tim McCarver is far worse than Michael Irvin.

And if you put a gun to my head and forced me to choose... I'm banging Roseanne.

peter king quote while picking teh dallas-houston game:
"You want some balls this week, T.O.? You'll get 'em. Lots of 'em. So will Terry Glenn."

El Padrino said...

king's a homo

El Padrino said...

the best part at being at the game

no joe buck

no tim mc carver

Beth82678 said...

I know there's still a lot of baseball left, but if it does turn out to be Detroit-NY like it's looking so far, I think El Pad and Iam need to make one of those lame-ass bets that mayors do. Except where the mayors bet what they WISH their cities were most famous for, El Pad and Iam bet what their cities are really most known for.

Of course betting cars & murder against hookers & murder does make it kind of tough (and dangerous) for the loser to pay off.

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP has to drive a ford if the tigers win, and beth has to become a hooker if mets win, sounds good

Spaceman Spiff said...

murder cancels itself out

Beth82678 said...

Wait, how did I become part of this bet? I think Iam should have to become a hooker if the Mets win.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I think EP should have to use a pic of himself sipping on a Zima for his photo.

The Rev said...

OK... this is coming from the guy who had to say how much he loved donkey dick on KC's blog after losing an online bet.

I think the bet has to be something like that.

The loser has to make a posting on the front page of LOV of at least 150 words on why exactly he enjoys donkey dick.

And we as the LOV community get to judge if it is good enough. If it is not, then he has to do it over again.

THE CHAMP. said...

150 words on how he would love to have A-Rod's dick.

start writing EP.

Beth82678 said...

Rev, you're such a sadist - and I love it.

Of course it might help if we actually got Iam and El Pad to agree to any bet that's agreed on by everyone else, but then again peer pressure is a wonderful thing.

The Rev said...

Peer pressure is part of the rock that this blog was founded upon.

The Rev said...

Yeah, sipping on a wine cooler or a Zima is not that embarassing. I mean, who among us hasn't indulged in a Zima in his life?

Writing about donkey dick... now that's embarassing.

The Rev said...

I need a pick from Bryan in the suicide pool soon.

temwr said...

What's Zima? It sounds like a French soccer player.

What's a wine cooler? Is that something that stores wine? Can you put beer in it instead?

The Rev said...

I do own a wine refrigerator at home. It keeps my wine nice and chilled.

But it is not a wine cooler.

JFreak said...

But C-c-c-c-oach...he spit in the coo-c-c-coooler.

Stiggy said...

You guys are cracking me up. I can't believe I am going to admit this but I used to drink Zima in college. I would drop a Jolly Rancher (usually apple) in it and enjoy it. Go ahead, mock away.

For the record, I now enjoy Guinness or a nice glass of red wine. Do they even make Zima anymore?

THE CHAMP. said...

my pick is in.

The Rev said...

When Zima first came out in college, I used to drink it.

Of course, I also used to drink pink champagne with my friends in college. Why? Cause it was $2.50 a bottle.

In college, we didn't give a rats ass what it was, as long as it was cheap booze.

Crazy Horse Malt Liquor... another cheap drunk.

JFreak said...

For all the crap that's said about Stephon Marbury, he is doing one thing good.

NBA-quality shoes for $14.98

Basically, it's the same shoe as a Nike $100 one, but for only 15 bucks.

temwr said...

Marbury is aweomse. He and Areneas should get together and star in a sitcom.

King Cobra is the way to go for cheap beer. 40 ounces, 99 cents. Well at least it was 99 cents in 1998 when I was in college. I seem to recall it being 2 for a dollar on some nights, but that might be my memory just making my past sound better than it is. Like that time I had the threesome with the cheerleaders...on the football field.

The Rev said...

They say it's the same as a Nike one, but is it really?

I just wonder how much less they had to pay the sweatshop workers to make that show.

But it does reinforce one of my theories. Them sneakers $100 and over are basically the same thing as the $40 and under shoes with better marketing. So I do have to hand it to Marbury for doing something the kids can get.

They are apparently sold out, but there's a few pairs on eBay, including my size 13 for $22.99 with $15 shipping. Still not too bad a deal.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I read on a some shoe website that the Starbury's weren't worth a damn if you're ballin' in 'em.

temwr said...

Is it wrong that I liked the SH's article this week?? I actually laughed and thought it was funny and good.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

The Rev said...

Simmons was good this time around. His wife's article, it might have een her best one yet. It didn't make me shake my head and go "Why?"

Maybe he is writing them for her now, and she is just making the picks. It's feasible.

temwr said...

I would not be shocked to find out that the SH is really the SG writing for her.

At the very least I think he has been giving her "tips" after her first couple weeks.

And she is KILLING him in the picks department. It is so bad that every week he puts little excuses out to the side as to why he lost. Or how if three things were different he would have had a much better record.

JFreak said...

Marbury says he's gonna wear them for the year. And they say that tests at street events have shown that they wear well. But you never know.

temwr said...

Any predictions for the game tonight/today?

Isiah Thomas said...

I enjoy a nice glass of scotch and poetry.

temwr said...

Well I'll get drunk on margaritas and then go watch The Departed.

But I think the Tigers win today too. It does help that they are already up 2-0 after 1.

temwr said...

I think El Pad cries many tears tonight as Poo Holes takes Wagner deep deep deep and puts the Cards on top in the 9th. Then I think the Cards survive a scare, but hold on for the win.

well done Steve.

Isiah Thomas said...

Steve -

Best.Website.Ever.

Spaceman Spiff said...

good job steve, new tennis high score submitted-232, i suck at the other games, should put the pendulum game link on the site

thejaywhite said...

bills will not lose that game..buffalo could be 4-1 right now...they are a not a bad team

temwr said...

I had like 20K on pac man before my boss came in and I had to shut it down. 20K isn't too much though, no reason to put that up there.

I suck at the pendulum thing and the tennis thing. I might be able to bring something for golf, but I don't see myself toping 28 let alone 26.

JFreak said...

Put the pendulum link up on there too.

Also, there's no link back to the main page if you navigate away.

Awesome job.

Spaceman Spiff said...

breaking news on LOV again, Arod's private jet overshot a runway and had to be stopped by an arresting system, whatever that is, sadly no one was injured on the plane, including arod.

Isiah Thomas said...

So Detroit vs......in the World Series?

Isiah Thomas said...

I've used that POS airport before. Really small and dumpy. Not much room for error either.

Isiah Thomas said...

"and sharpshooter Vladimir Radmanovic, a career 38 percent shooter from beyond the arc. "

38% still isn't great but its enough to qualify you as a "sharpshooter" I guess.

Tyler said...

I have been buried in an avalanche of work for the last month or so and haven't had any spare time to spend here. So I need to know two things; 1. Is it too late to get in on the LOV Fantasy Basketball League? And 2. If you've already drafted in the Basketball League, who took Kevin Pittsnogle and in what round? Thank-you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

JFreak said...

Isn't league average from 3 pt like 30%?

And I just saw the worst commercial ever. Fox was airing a promo for the BCS games that they're showing in January. Apparently, the BCS Championship Trophy is put up in the sky like a cloud, and all the colleges have to climb a ladder to get up to it. In the process, players throw people down from other universities to their untimely death. Oh, and a Miami player breaks the ladder above him and kills like 15 people. I hate fox. Just let [adult swim] air the new Family Guy episodes and shut down all other operations.

JFreak said...

It is not too late to sign up for the FBL. We draft sometime in late October.

Tyler said...

What's the league info/password? Is it autodraft?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Brilliant stuff right here. I'm not kidding.

One of my best friends' wedding is tomorrow. I just gave myself a mohawk. Good times.

but you must go to the wedding drunk.

Most certainly going drunk.

good to have another Philly fan here, and a former Delco guy to boot.
