El Pad's Weekly Betting Forum

Rays won there will be a Game 3. Auburn lost to WVU but the SEC is still the best league because they fuck their cousins and eat alligator. I'm sort of pumped about Niba. Strange. Did you guys know the hockey season started? No really it did. Stop laughing I'm not even kidding.

Let's get soaking wet.

Where I stand:
Cash : $907.50
Picks: 22-18

New wrinkle for this week's college picks. I let a girl pick them. And not just any girl but our own, our wonderful, our lovely. Beth. Girl, if loving is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Let's play a little he said/she said.

Alabama -6 over Tennessee

Beth says: Tennessee is just not a good football team this year and I'd say Fulmer has about a 30% chance of coming back next year based on what I've read. I was actually quite surprised to see this line so low, but then again today's AJC had a big article about how close most SEC games have been this year, so I'm sure that plays into it.

El Pad says: Beth pretty much nails it. Fulmer is a fat mess, everyone is waiting for Bama to fall apart. Won't happen here. And beth ♥'s the AJC.
(Straight Bet : $150)

Penn State -2.5 over OSU

Beth says: I haven't been impressed with Ohio State all year and while I don't know how tested Penn State has been this year, I see them covering. This may be a "win for JoePa's [probable] final year" mentality for that team.

El Pad says: Well beth ain't really saying much here but she's picking the right side. The shoe will be bumping no doubt but PSU is a very good football team and this may be their shot a NT game. Win here and they have a easy win-out schedule. At Iowa, home vs Indiana and home vs Javon Ringer. As far as Beth alluding to whether or not they have been tested up until now they have shamed Wisconsin in Madison and took care of a then ranked Illini team at home. By the way, the higher ranked opponent as won this contest the past 7 out of 10 times.
(Straight Bet : $150)

Wyoming +31 over TCU

Beth says: I definitely don't see Wyoming winning this game or even being close, but 31 is just too big a number for TCU. Call it women's intuition. :-)

El Pad says : "but 31 inches* is just too big" TWSS. *Fixed. Sorry couldnt resist. And Beth for the sake of making this a little more fun I'll side with TCU, I say they win and win big. I'll call it 45-3, TCU. : (
(Straight Bet : 50)

Onto the big boys....

Atlanta +9 over Philly
We talked about this. Jug mentioned he was surprised by the line and I am too. The problem with this trend wise is that ATL has not covered a plus spread this year (or the last 4 games last year). But Matt Ryan and Roddy White can keep any game close. And Michael Turner is not a mirage. Philly wins because they need it and because Westbrook is back (maybe K. Curtis too), but not by more than 9 points. (Straight bet : $50)

Chargers -3 over New Orleans
Bloke bowl in London. Losing Reggie Bush makes this Saints team very one-dimensional I think. Hate him or love him Bush is one hell of a playmaker. Gets 20-30 touches a game, Pierre Woods? Not so much. Can't just throw Colston back in the fire either. SD has been real good in the month of October ATS. Brees has wanted to play this game since SD gave up on him, but he didn't want to play this game across the pond. Bolts win and cover.
(Straight bet : $150)

Bills -1 over Miami
Ok, ok. This spread boggles my mind too. I may be in the minority but I love the Bills. Nobody circles the buffet better then Chris Berman. But anyway they should be spotting Miami at least 4 0r 5 here. Has Miami impressed this year? Sure. But we knew they would. Any team that won one game the year prior will be better. But they can't hang with what is now the class of the division. By the way, I heard Dick Jauron sent Bernie Pollard some cookies for that one.
(Straight Bet : $200)


Let's drink and make bad decisions this weekend guys. Cheers!

bullshit.

Beth said...

EP, I'm disappointed. Once I saw you were going to do a "she said/he said" thing I was certain you were going to pull out a "beth you ignorant slut" in honor of early SNL.

El Padrino said...

sorry beth forgot about that
that would have been funny

El Padrino said...

"Where I stand:

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"WADR meiz"


Ain't got nothin' to do with me

Beth said...

"WADR meiz"

I think you need a "WADR ep" after that comment too.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

also, WADR means nothing to me.

El Padrino said...

hey shitbags

the posts, the picks are all there
add them up

blue said...

"I think you need a "WADR ep" after that comment too."

nah, i had it right

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm not calling you a lie, I was honestly curious on how you won 500 on the Bears game.

Jeezaloo, Mize. Calm down.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"overall -3 for the game for $500"


Nevermind, I did your leg work.

El Padrino said...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

You need an o/u bet.

blue said...

El Padrino said...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

El Padrino said...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"it's high, but attainable, especially for a friday"


I heartily disagree

blue said...

"I heartily disagree"

is that because you have today off?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

No.

blue said...

is it because:

"you are not an angry person"?

tem said...

buying a car today.

El Padrino said...

what's that about?

tem said...

what's what about?

blue said...

have you decided which car?

tem said...

ok i need staph infection defined.

tem said...

yeah i am getting an 09 mazda 6.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Oh blue, you're hilarious.

blue said...

i try mr. meiz

blue said...

"yeah i am getting an 09 mazda 6."

the new models look pretty suite

Beth said...

I think meiz may be transitioning from angry to bitter.

Beth said...

Which he will surely deny.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Mazda 6?

Is Tem going through his pre midlife crisis crisis?

Beth said...

A temlife crisis?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Bitter is fine with me. I've always been bitter.

blue said...

mazda 6 is a 4 door sedan, not a sports car

El Padrino said...

mazda

interesting
let me know how they are

never experienced one

blue said...

we had a mazda when I was a kid, it was given to my grandparents at some point, but the car lasted like 14 years

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"mazda 6 is a 4 door sedan, not a sports car"

Oh. Well they sure as hell don't market it as such.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

My parents used to have an old Mazda with a rotary engine.

blue said...

they market everything as "zoom zoom"

Steve said...

looks like somebody, and i'm not mentioning any names, forgot the minus sign.

Keith S said...

Didn't EP win $600 on the Bears? $500 on -3 for the game and $100 on the 1st half?

Keith S said...

Mazda 6 is a good car.

JFreak said...

EP, I thought you said you hadn't gambled in weeks?

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

EP, I thought you said you hadn't gambled in weeks?

I haven't, this is all for the sake of the blog. I said that I would continue the betting column despite not actually placing a bet (for now, may jump back in once I catch up)

Darth Vader

::blank stare::

El Padrino said...

ESPN is reporting that Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes will be charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. Marijuana and marijuana-filled cigars, otherwise known as blunts, were found in his car.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"::blank stare::"



Darth Vader is a fictional character in George Lucas' science fiction saga Star Wars. He is the principal antagonist in the original Star Wars trilogy, who is revealed over the course of the saga to be a tragic hero named Anakin Skywalker.

Nerd alert

isiah thomas said...

anyone peeped game on that Big 10 commercial with all the coaches saying "come to _______"

JoePa's part is hysterical, most coaches say something generic or about their school:

ex. Rich Rod "our helmets have wings" (points to helmet)

JoePa is the last coach and he goes

"COME TO PENNNNNN STATTTTTTTTE"

but he's got this crazy look on his face and acts like he hasn't shat in a week.

total hilarity.

isiah thomas said...

Nerds!

Beth said...

"Auburn lost to WVU but the SEC is still the best league because"

Oh even I'll admit the SEC is waaaayyyy down this year and most probably not the best league.

spaceman spiff said...

i enjoy eltardo's digs at hollinger

spaceman spiff said...

scurred for my $ league draft, i havent not cashed in that league ever, gotta keep the streak alive

El Padrino said...

"EP - Sammy Adams Octoberfest

wonderful, burned trough two cases since early sept.

spaceman spiff said...

elatrdo's guide has no bearing in my league, asssists are 2.5 and steals are 5, CP3 is definitely a top 2 pick

spaceman spiff said...

spaten oktoberfest, do it

available at bev mo i believe

isiah thomas said...

Oh even I'll admit the SEC is waaaayyyy down this year and most probably not the best league.

I disagree, I don't think they're way down, they still have good teams - but every other conference does too.

El Padrino said...

told you hockey started

Keith S said...

zeke

isiah thomas said...

I wonder if ESPN will play out stories about the Big 12 QB that wins the heisman like they did with Tesus.

El Padrino said...

spaten is also very good

Sam Adams Octoberfest: it's no Winter Lager. Or Summer Ale.

Spatan Oktoberfest is good, but if you can find Hacker Oktoberfest (pronounced "Acker", silent Aitch*), jump on that with the quickness. I had like six pints of it two weeks ago. Amazing stuff.

isiah thomas said...

Spatan Oktoberfest is good, but if you can find Hacker Oktoberfest

Someone should write a post for LoB and taste test all of these new alt American beers. I nominate anyone but me.

Tyler said...

Speaking of sisteen chapels, on SportsCenter this morning, they had that Phillies RISP stat up and it said "Phillies are 1-18 win runners are in scoring position". They cut to a video or something and when they came back it was fixed. I rewound it to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks and it was real.

thought about doing this because michelob has a smapler 12pk, amberbock, ale, red ale and a lager

may still do it, would be pissed if it's super awful though

Keith S said...

Amber Bock is awful

El Padrino said...

"Tracy Morgan jokes about his fame to New York magazine, "I feel like a young girl whose body is just developing. I’ve got some nice tits, a nice ass, a pretty face … everyone want to f*** me."

reminds me zeke i will be peeping game on 30 Rock next week

spaceman spiff said...

i dont mind amber bock

El Padrino said...

They say that LiLo "smoked 24/7, and after she left, they had to repaint her dressing room it was such a mess." It gets better! She allegedly "would obsessively cut pictures of herself out of the tabloids like she was creating some sort of scrapbook" (creepy!) and while rehearsing for a scene where America Ferrera had to "pants" her, they claim she wasn't wearing any underwear (the episode aired last night). Her friends defend her by saying the starlet "wears underwear all the time now."


poor kid is still batshit crazy

isiah thomas said...
