I'm A Degenerate

El Padrino's Weekly Betting Column

College:

Oklahoma (+4) over Texas
Oklahoma showed a hell of alot in that controversial loss to Oregon. Texas did not in thier loss to Ohio State. Adrian Peterson vs. the Texas defense that has allowed 3.6 yards a carry will be the marquee matchup. This is going to be a slobberknocker. ($25)

S. Carolina (-6) over KENTUCKY
The offense is starting to click and Kentucky is no sec powerhouse. I really liked what SC showed me against Auburn last week. I anticipate this game being on of my best bets of the week. ($50)

WISCONSIN (-20) over Northwestern
Almost too easy, if they spread was a point higher I would not publish this bet. Northwestern stinks. ($50)

Pros:

Rams (-3) over PACKERS
Spread's only three? I don't know why but the passing game is clearly the Achilles heel for the Pack and they go up against two of the best in Bulger and Holt. Will someone else be released from the Packers secondary this week after another coverage debacle? ($50)

Cowboys (+2) over EAGLES
I think the boys tuned themselves up against the Titans and are ready to play a real football team. The pressure in on the Eagle secondary not to let T.O run free and they have alot of injury problems back there. The key for Philly is front four pressure. Forgetting the blitzing cuz we know Jim Johnson can bring it but I mean regular front four pressure is key.

JAGS (-6.5) vs Jets
Jets were a handful against the Colts last week but ended up on the wrong side of the score anyway. Jags still don't know what happened last week. All they know is that they took a plane to D.C and came home 2-2. Things will go back to normal tomorrow.

Browns (+8) over PANTHERS
I like the Browns to keep it close. Romeo Crennel does not allow his teams to get dominated. Simple as that. Not when he was a coordinator and not now. And the Panthers are one muscle pull or strain away from a lost season because they cannot function without Smith. Even thought he is playing I hear he still not 100%.

BEARS/Bills under (34)

Just Teasing:
BEARS +2 over Bills
COLTS -6.5 over Titans
Rams +9 over PACKERS
Browns +20 over PANTHERS

That is all.

slobberknocker is underrated and underused.

The Rev said...

Well, I hope you go 7-1 this week. Guess where I want you to get the 1?

Seriously, you are right about one thing. If the Eagles front 4 don't get the pressure on Bledsoe, it will be a long day for the Eagles.

If you blitz too much, you get those Dallas receivers in one on one matchups and that could be scary. If the front 4 doesn't establish dominance without having to blitz all the time, you might as well give Bledsoe an easy chair and TV back there.

Times like this I miss Jevon Kearse.

"slobberknocker is underrated and underused"

You never listened much to Jim Ross on Monday Night Raw, did you?

He uses that term 5 times a show.

Isiah Thomas said...

the only one that I'd question is the Jags. I think Stroud, Jones and someone else are already ruled out. They seemed pretty banged up after that brutal opening quarter.

Isiah Thomas said...

I stopped watching WWF/E when The Rock left.

Isiah Thomas said...

EP - what is up with Grady Little's smock? What a slob.

I stopped watching WWE over a year ago. But I occasionally check in just for kicks.

The Rock was the master.

The Rev said...

Temwr...

I hope you posted it on the official picks page.

temwr said...

nevermind just saw the picks thread.

temwr said...

didn't scroll down enough to see it the first time around.

temwr said...

I stopped watching after the Ultimate Warrior quit.

The Rev said...

I need two picks today from Spaceman and Bryan.

Yes, the picks page is about two posts down on the main page.

I'll be away for the weekend, so get them in today early.

ToddPacker said...

"Bud Mud"...that's a keeper, I'm going to use that one in the future.

Good win last night for the Mets.
I was watching SNY after the game and the crowd look like it was going crazy. Gary Cohen look legitimatly scared.

Hopefully they get to Maddux on Sat.

Great win for the Tigers, hopefully they can take two in Det.

Bad loss for FSU last night....

I'm out (only working a 1/2 day)heading up to Gainesville early...I hope the Gators can pull one out against LSU tomorrow.

Isiah Thomas said...

Bud Mud....that's why I don't get why people don't like Bud Light.

JFreak said...

Re: Stephen Jackson

It was a licensed gun, and the only reason he fired it was to avoid getting run over by a car. I think he gets a pass for that.

The Rev said...

Bud Mud... yeah, we were using that term in college back in the early 90's. It's a classic, and the classics never go out of style.

JFreak said...

I was just taking a look at the world map on the site meter and guess what I found. We've had visitors to our site from Australia and Chile. Which is quite cool if you ask me. I say we take this thing to another notch and go global.

mound of venus said...

THERE IS NO WAY TEXAS LOSES TO MOBILEHOMA THIS YEAR. I LIKE CAPS I THINK I WILL COMMENT ALL IN CAPS TODAY.

JFreak said...

And so he reappears.

cue the ghost stories...

The Rev said...

So where you been, Mound? I've been wondering why you haven't posted on the main page.

temwr said...

haha, mobilhoma. that's funny.

Chileans love vengeance. I can't explain the Australian.

anonymous said...

ive got really terrible gas today.

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev is that you - Philly Sports Guy?

Isiah Thomas said...

make sure to use it as productively as possible iam...

temwr said...

SG picks/article is up.

Not a bad read.

At the end it says he is 29-29-2. Is that even close to true? Isn't he more like 24-34-2??

temwr said...

WTF are you talking about Zeke?

Speaking of WTF, I haven't seen a good WTF headline in like 3 days. We are way way overdue. There will be a ginormous WTF episode this weekend...brace yourselves. People in larger towns should get helmets.

temwr said...

And I mean WTF with the Philly SG thing. Not the using the gas productively.

temwr said...

thejaywhite said...

i got gas too..when i go out to train..i may run indoors instead just cause theres a washroom incase i want to shitmy pants

thejaywhite said...

my gas is from booze last night though..im sure urs is cause u stink

temwr said...

I wish my Gradkowski jersey was getting here today. That way I could wear it this weekend while he was still an NFL virgin.

Next week when he has a career QB rating of 12, well it won't be a cool.

anonymous said...

tem is attaching his jersey hopes to the nfl equivalent of the Titanic.

and jaywhite... mine sure was from me naturally stinking. cause i got raped by a Notre Dame Priest.
they love their young men.

Isiah Thomas said...

Rev said he was going to refer to himself as Philly Sports Guy, wasn't sure if he created the person and posted on DB's shit.

thejaywhite said...

gradkowski and rivers are my 2 fantasy qbs this week..how bad is that

i had warner...vicks and carr on byes

anonymous said...

im gonna have to go with "pretty damn bad".

not as bad as possible, but at least its not Brooks, Favre or Smith.

gotta look at the positives here..

temwr said...

tjw- You better hope Rivers throws for 500 yds.

Zeke- Ah it was a DB thing. Haven't looked over there.

iam- Gradkowski might pull a Shaun King and lead them to the almost promised land. Gradkowski is like an internet stock. Buy low sell real high before he crashes himself out of the league.

anonymous said...

i think im gonna tune in to the raiders/niners opening just to see if they'll use the tagline of "worst matchup in the history of the NFL".

"good afternoon, and welcome to the world's worst matchup...(::crowd roar:: which is all the players' friends and families).

seriously, why dont they just let somebody play this on Madden just so no one has to suffer.

Los said...

Art Shell is a great coach ... for us gamblers.

whocares said...

Luckily for me I took Lamont Jordan in the 1st round of my FF draft. Thank you, thank you (bowing).

I knew the Raiders were going to be bad, but I didnt know it would be THIS bad. Does anyone on that team even care anymore? Do they still practice or do they just pull a Little League move and show up an hour before game time every Sunday?

temwr said...

FYI - I can't make FBL draft due to Halloween party. Autodrafting isn't a big deal for me though. I suck at FBLs anyway.

The Rev said...

I am not Philly Sports Guy on the KC board.

I've seen him around before. In fact, I think he's posted on one of my other blogs before.

temwr said...

Sports Ho took Tampa Bay. She is riding the Gradowski ship with me!

The Rev said...

Actually, I looked that kid up, and it turns out he's new. Maybe it wasn't the same guy. I've seen others post under "Philly Sports Guy" before.

My joke was just a one day joke that I threw out to be funny. I had no idea someone was using it over at DB's board.

And really, I wouldn't post any comments about The Wire. I've never seen the show.

temwr said...

I still don't even know what the wire is. nor do i care.

whocares said...

Not to restart the DB hating, but why come out and start pimping the Wire after Simmons has already been on his knees blowing it for the last three months?

Come up with your own material...

temwr said...

That is a good question.

The answer is: It is just part of the reason he is a huge DB.

Bengals WR Henry got 2 games for puking.

temwr said...

And the Colts DT Simon has polyarthritis, whatever the hell that is.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Wow, where have I been today? This is like my first look at the page today.

temwr said...

Twins As just started too.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Anybody wanna pool McD's Monopoly pieces? What if like 2 or three of us could land a few grand? I got Illinois & Atlantic.

temwr said...

I'll pool any Monopoly crap I get.

It would be the only way I'd win anything. I don't even get free Big Macs or drinks or anything. Well once I got a free coffee, but I don't drink coffee.

Eric said...

I've decided that the Monopoly game is the single greatest promotion in history. There are thousands of people who never eat McDonald's that start eating there like twice a week for those damn monopoly pieces. It's genius.

P.S. I got Park Place yesterday so whoever finds a Boardwalk and wants to split a million dollars with me I'm down.

JFreak said...

Why in the world does ESPN have 4 announcers for the game? That booth must be so crowded.

The Rev said...

You know what I think happens?

They obviously put out only one Boardwalk piece in the Mcdonald's Monopoly game to match one of the 50,000,000 Park Place pieces.

What if that is the cup that gets randomly thrown away? I bet that's happened before. Some doofus who doesn't give a shit throws away his half drank milkshake and Boardwalk rots away in the city dump.

The Rev said...

Driving to Boston for the weekend. Thank goodness I won't hit any playoff baseball traffic on the way.

Peace out!

must read for us gamblers, good news

anonymous said...

will the A's sweep em today.. this could be a final breath...

temwr said...

Wow, MIN looked good going into the playoffs, but have fallen on their face so far.

Maybe the As have another collapse in them...

temwr said...

Wow the Penguins shut someone out in hockey. That might tie their shutout total from last season.

thejaywhite said...

my oakland A's getting it done

anonymous said...

representing for america now, eh?

JFreak said...

Derek Jeter just had an 8 pitch at bat that lasted over 6 minutes long.

Stupid Yankees.

(Even though it was Kenny Rogers' fault)

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

who are my peeps from Freedom and West Bend?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Freak, how do you see where poeple in other countries go to the site. I couldn't figure it out on sitemeter.

temwr said...

The Yankees are playing again?

When do the cards / pads play? Some series are over and they haven't started game 2 have they?

Stiggy said...

The Cards are up 2-0 in the series. They played yesterday and won the game 2-0.

Isiah Thomas said...

F THE YANKEES

anonymous said...

boys and girls...

GO TIGERS, eh?

Isiah Thomas said...

Watching the Yankees sulk in the dugout after ANOTHER playoff loss will NEVER get old.

Isiah Thomas said...

I wanna see Rodgers bodyslam someone in the celebration.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd have to imagine Dmitri Young is very bitter at this moment.
