El Pad's Weekly Betting Guide

Happy New Year guys. May we all prosper, grow and get rich.
Cashing checks and breaking necks.

This decade sucked.
Think about all the shit that has happened. Bank bailouts, war, jon and kate plus 8, terrorism, 9/11, obama, britney spears, tiger woods, mets lose 2000 World Series then 2006 blew it all then blew everything else, on top of that Philly won something, Boston won many things and the Knicks had the worse decade in franchise history.

The only good thing that came out of this decade was LOV was born. VIVA!

My picks have been shitty, I apologize. In the classic sink or swim scenario I'm handicapping all the games this weekend plus some Bowl Games over the next few days. I need to finish above .500 for my own sanity.

Overall : 45-49-2
Situation : (-1800)

Florida -13.5 over Cincy ($200) - Tesus last game. 56-24 Gators.
WVU -2.5 over FSU ($200) - Emotions aside the WVU team is just better.
Oregon -4 over OSU ($200) - James, Blount, Masoli, repeat.
LSU +2.5 over PSU ($200) - If the Iowa defense confused Clark, wonder what a faster SEC defense will do to him?

Cincy +10 over NYJ ($200), even if they pull starters.
Browns -1.5 over JAx ($200), the Dog Pound is back!
Chicago -3 over Det ($200), Lions have had the worse decade ever.
Atlanta -2.5 over TB ($500), Falcons are serious about that winning record.
Titans -4 over Seattle ($200), Finish strong.
Steelers -3 over Miami ($200), Always sad when defending champs miss out on playoffs.

The rest, all for $100.

Houston -8, San Fran -7, AZ -3.5, Bmore -10, Philly -3, SD -4.

Enjoy January 1st. My New Year Resolution is simply to continue to be awesome, I posted all the things that can help me be that on my blog.

I have 23 confidence points on the Gophers in my $ pool. Goddman

hahahahahahahaha

you had much more confidence in the Gophs than most in Minni

kodiac said...

didn't Beth just have strep last month? sorry Beth (ns); sounds like a rough couple months

kodiac said...

it's also funny to hear about lawyers having big egos....who here doesn't have a big ego? we all do. Don't tell me Keith, EP, Zeke, Deke, Blue don't have big egos.

for real dough:

celebrating "the new year" is a trip on the "west coast".....

we peeped game on the east coast feed, then peeped game again during the MST (or MDT) re-broadcast, when they try to pawn off the ball drop as live out here it gets a ::crystal ball:: from us.

isiah thompson said...

is Fergie white?

if so she needs to come correct

Accidentally posted on this on the last post.

"I can't wait to see Dick Clark tonight - for hilarity purposes."

It was just kind of sad.

Though I did laugh when he screwed up the countdown once again.

I think he does; agree to disagree on that one. But yeah, we all do....nothing wrong with that though

kodpiece, I was mad disappointed that Minny couldn't ruff* off ISU.

the really sad part is that bolth* those teams were bowl legible* and UM wasn't. (ns)

kodiac said...

The Insight pitted two 6-6 squads that needed to defeat a team from the Dakotas to become bowl-eligible.

-what do the Gophers, Cyclones and Tem have in common?

I'm continuing to increase the 2010 Attaboy Bank Account® - fixing fmz a pancake breakfast tomorrow.

-yeah, I agree that it's sad that Minni and Iowa State were bowl eligible. My facebook friends from Iowa State were talking shit about how many fans they had for the game versus how many Minni fans were there.
-but how can you get excited about this game? It's a fucking joke.
-UM is probably better off not playing in a BS bowl game this year

isiah thompson said...

outdoor hockey tomorrow right?

and WADR tem on my previous joke; I'm sure she's lovely (ns)

Yep.

Actually I have no idea.

But that sounds right.

there's only 5 games tomorrow?

that is fucking trifling

NEW YORK -- Washington Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other during a Christmas Eve locker room argument over a gambling debt, according to The New York Post.




I imagine them holding the guns sideways, at least I hope they did.

gil's gun wasn't loaded though....

he's all sizzle and no steak

Kevin said...

"any good sil stories from last night?"

Not really and good ones. csil is dating my buddy who had the party last night. But she was kind of low key last night because they broke up during the day. hsil got hammered and threw up in the dumpster for about 10 minutes

blue said...

they broke up during the day and got back together that night?

good news about dating a pharmacist...they get free birth control pills

brutal


do they usually "break up" a lot? weird that she'd go to his party.

blue said...

watched "sicko" yesterday

although I hate what Mike Moore stands for most of the time...he always makes a compelling one sided argument

Kevin said...

"they broke up during the day and got back together that night?"

No. They didn't want to fuck up the party so they went through the motions

isiah thompson said...

did fmz's peeps pick up the tab last night?



they offered twice to pay for everything but we paid for our portion. I didn't want to be a dirtball and invite them out with us and have them pay.

Kevin said...

"how did the salsa turn out."

Bombsauce. ns


I made 2 batches of it. Put 5 jalapenos in it, and it was a little hot, so I put an orange in it. So it was hot and suite

Kevin said...

"getting the new year started off write*! ymsoab!"

Warming up for the semis

isiah thompson said...

wow, #21 on FSU is fast.

Kevin said...

"do they usually "break up" a lot? weird that she'd go to his party."

They were on and off for a year or so, then this last time they've been "on" since last Chrismas*. But she's finally realizing that when he says he doesn't want kids, it means he doesn't want kids. And he's pretty much an alcoholic and she doesn't want competition in the household for that position

Kevin said...

"wow, #21 on FSU is fast."

It's that extra ligament in his knee

Kevin said...

Jesus Chris*, Auburn.

isiah thompson said...

Northwestern should be destroying Auburn, their QB has been Auburn's MVP.

OSU vs Oreygon* should be grate, really looking fwd to that one.

Did we end up betting on that? I can't remember either. I think I said I would bet if Kelly was still the coach, but not if he left

"it's also funny to hear about lawyers having big egos"


John P. Mills


the defense rests

and wtf has happened to The Rock? another kids movie?

suite playcall by NW

Jugdish said...

another kids movie?



so?

/ep

isiah thompson said...

this NW game is fucking crazy

isiah thompson said...

what an anti-climactic ending in the NW game

JFreak said...

gutsy call. too bad it didn't work. That would have been sweet.

isiah thompson said...

I think that was a ratard call.

you bring in a new kicker Auburn had to know it would be a fake, and if you fake run it to the wide side.


if your* gonna go for it, bring your O on the field.

dumb.

JFreak said...

"And he's pretty much an alcoholic and she doesn't want competition in the household for that position"

awesome.

JFreak said...

"you bring in a new kicker Auburn had to know it would be a fake, and if you fake run it to the wide side."

Just turned to the game, didn't know that was the situation.

Not the best call, then.

JFreak said...

It would be really nice if Bobby Bowden would lost his last game.

JFreak said...

Or even lose his last game.

isiah thompson said...

Just turned to the game, didn't know that was the situation.

Not the best call, then.


yeah and it was about the 5th trick play NW had called in the game.

isiah thompson said...

the taco bell diet commercial is hilarity

JFreak said...

Lsu punt returner called for a fair catch and then ran 40 yards.

I don't think you're allowed to do that.

Verne Lundquist needs to be mercy killed.

Bring back Keith Jackson. The one old dude who could still announce games.

I hate you

JFreak said...

Even TMQ wouldn't go for it on 4th and 13.

Meiz said...

Jug was smoking a pipe?

Suite.

JFreak said...

That was offsides.

Should have been offsetting penalties.

JFreak said...

Probably shouldn't have even been a penalty on penn state.

yay bad officiating.

JFreak said...

What a silly penalty by LSU.

JFreak said...

Why was the clock running before that play?

Penalty stops the clock.

JFreak said...

Take that SEC.

Kevin said...

terrible personal foul penalty on LSU

Kevin said...

"Why was the clock running before that play?

Penalty stops the clock."

Penalty stops the clock while the refs talk about it. Starts back up on the ref's whistle

Kevin said...

Unless the play stopt* the clock

Kevin said...

I was pisst* that PSU won, then I just saw that I pickt* them in my confidence pool so I'm ok with it now

Kevin said...

I had lots of confidence in wava, though

isiah thompson said...

WVU -2.5 over FSU ($200) - Emotions aside the WVU team is just better.

LSU +2.5 over PSU ($200) - If the Iowa defense confused Clark, wonder what a faster SEC defense will do to him?


new year, same results

JFreak said...

I had no idea who I was most confident in, so I just moved the games back and forth for a few minutes.

JFreak said...

Bad day for wava. Lose to FSU and Purdue.

isiah thompson said...

come on cbs, get the fucking mic right, jeebus chris.

Kevin said...

"new year, same results"

amazazing

isiah thompson said...

I just picked the games, didn't bother with the confidence points.

Kevin said...

oregon scares me

JFreak said...

Agent Zero keeps tweeting that he didn't pull a gun on anyone.

Apparently if he's charged with a felony, the Wizards could void his contract. That would be a huge deal for them.

Kevin said...

But at least tOSU has this on their side...

Oregon -4 over OSU ($200) - James, Blount, Masoli, repeat.

JFreak said...

"oregon scares me"

Their uniforms are pretty frightening.

Kevin said...

"Their uniforms are pretty frightening."


You know what I meant freak.

Cut it out.

JFreak said...

Their uniforms are scary.

I'm agreeing with you. Even if it's not the way you want.

Kevin said...

I don't like when Herbie announces OSU games

ns

Kevin said...

Those unis are fugly

isiah thompson said...

Apparently if he's charged with a felony, the Wizards could void his contract. That would be a huge deal for them.



I was hoping they could find a way to void his deal.

Kevin said...

Tressel: We feel like we're representing the Big 10


Great, thanks doc

Spaceman Spiff said...

Lsu +2.5 is a winner

Just sayin

isiah thompson said...

shit I thought it said -2.5


welcome back spiffg, how was HI?

JFreak said...

Seems weird that Pryor would reveal he had a knee injury.

Leaves himself open to people going after his knees.

isiah thompson said...

Leaves himself open to people going after his knees.



gives him an excuse in case he shits the bed.

JFreak said...

Didn't think of that.

Good call.

isiah thompson said...

the border around the field is the it-lee* flag color's*.

isiah thompson said...

or mexico

isiah thompson said...

this gameplan is going to back fire on OSU.

Spaceman Spiff said...

Still in HI won't be back til TCS I want 50 million guaranteed

I'm out

isiah thompson said...

I hate when the refs do the "hype up" review after big plays.


it's all fized anyways.

Meiz said...

"I want 50 million guaranteed"

Eat shit, Kev!

Jugdish said...

wall

JFreak said...

wall this.

isiah thompson said...

refs are bailing out OSU now.


it's all fized

JFreak said...

Oregon's marching band unis are pathetic.

isiah thompson said...

good game so far

Kevin said...

Scott Bakula thinks Terrelle Pryor has an awful throwing motion

Kevin said...

cmk: We're gonna stay and watch Avatar at 4:05, do you want to come watch it with us? I know you wanted to see it

me: No

cmk: Why not?

me: I'm watching the game

cmk: Which game?

me: The OSU game that I've talked about all week

cmk: Can't you just tivo it?

me: ::dead air::

isiah thompson said...

I think Pryor has had a heckuva game so far.

Kevin said...

the fuck? The Obama's are media whores


/LP

Kevin said...

"I think Pryor has had a heckuva game so far."

I think he's played well. I almost think that him limping on that first drive was fake. But his throwing motion is still awful

Kevin said...

Hopefully Tressel doesn't go away from the passing game.

Kevin said...

It's funny that they're having the soccer player handle the kickoffs, even though Petrius has the stronger leg. The soccer player can't get it to the 10 yd line

isiah thompson said...

Avatar was aight, I'm glad I saw it, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

it was really good for the first two-thirds then it got a little weird and preachy - and they end up stealing plot pieces from 5 movies and make them into one movie.

isiah thompson said...

I think he's played well. I almost think that him limping on that first drive was fake. But his throwing motion is still awful



total fake - he was running his ass off fine later on in the 2nd q.

The Rev said...

You don't Tivo the Rose Bowl and watch it later.

Way to stay strong, Kev.

JFreak said...

That was a great pass by pryor.

isiah thompson said...

You don't Tivo the Rose Bowl and watch it later.



Rose Bowl chills?

it was only a matter of time before one of those ducks got picked off.

oooooh, and homemade Lefsa; haven't had that since I was a kid

-I suppose I'll get a lot of blank stares on Lefsa

isiah thompson said...

another "hype up" replay for OSU, and the refs missed a blatant holding call on that pryor jump ball, but they call the split second "offsides".


gotta love it


it's all fized anyway (ns)

isiah thompson said...

is lefsa that salted/cured cod that is re-hydrated and served with butter?

isiah thompson said...

no it's not:

"Lefse is a traditional soft Norwegian flatbread. Tjukklefse or tykklefse (thick lefse) is thicker, and often served with coffee as a cake. Lefse is made out of potato, milk or cream (or sometimes lard) and flour, and cooked on a griddle. Special tools are available for lefse baking, including long wooden turning sticks and special rolling pins with deep grooves."


blessed be

OSU got a break there. Pryor goes out of bounds and they didn't stop the clock

Kevin said...

that sounds like Ludafisk



LUDA!!

Kevin said...

"who holds brent musburger*'s mic when he's waving his scarlett and grey pom poms?"

He's always been like that. It's annoying because I hate him

Kevin said...

"tressball worked to a "t" tonight."

Aggressive Tressel is much > than conservative Tressel

The Rev said...

Best Buy has a sale on Hangover DVD's. Regularly $19.99, now $8.99.

With the $5 coupon I had, it made the final price $3.99.

That's cheaper than renting at Blockbuster.

Kevin said...

Here's my question about Pryor. Did he struggle this year because Tressel kept the reins tight and he didn't have opportunities to make plays? Troy Smith went through the same thing, and as soon as Tressel let him free, he was a playmaker

Kevin said...

"Best Buy has a sale on Hangover DVD's. Regularly $19.99, now $8.99. "

Not the unrated version. Gotta get the unrated version

kodiac said...

yikes, 20 degrees below zero here right now (not windchill, actual temp)

-glad I don't have anywhere to go tonight

The Rev said...

Not the unrated version. Gotta get the unrated version


I will eventually. Probably when I get another coupon.

Jugdish said...

Not the unrated version. Gotta get the unrated version


how much stuff is different in the unrated version?

kodiac said...

I watched the unrated version, but unfortunately it was the Ohio unrated version

The Rev said...

They had the two disc set which had a bunch of deleted scenes and stuff. That was $24.99. I was tempted.

I just couldn't pass up $3.99 for the movie.

JFreak said...

"Pryor goes out of bounds and they didn't stop the clock"

Believe the clock restarts after the set the ball, unless it's under 2 minutes.

And it was just under 3 at that point.

Kevin said...

"how much stuff is different in the unrated version?"

Unrated version is unrated

JFreak said...

the=they

Kevin said...

"Believe the clock restarts after the set the ball, unless it's under 2 minutes.

And it was just under 3 at that point."

OIC. I thought it was under 5 minutes.

kodiac said...

how much stuff is different in the unrated version?

I only saw the unrated version...but there was still very little or no nudity.
-unrated versions are overrated (ns). Usually in a comedy it's just a couple more seconds of boobs, and if it's a horror movie, usually a slightly more graphic murder scene or two
-you made the right call Rev

The Rev said...

I just have to ask an Ohio State fan...


is winning a Rose Bowl anywhere near as suite as winning the national title?

Is it even 75% as suite?

The Rev said...

I'll go watch it and let you know.

Kevin said...

"Usually in a comedy it's just a couple more seconds of boobs"


Gross

/mize

Kevin said...

"is winning a Rose Bowl anywhere near as suite as winning the national title?

Is it even 75% as suite?"


I was gonna say earlier that I was almost as nervous watching this game as I was watching the Nat'l Championship because of it being the Rose Bowl. Obviously I'd rather see them win it all, but winning the Rose Bowl against a top 10 team is pretty close.

Kevin said...

Of course I say that after watching them shit the bed the last 4 years in big games. If they had won some of those games the previous year, this game probably wouldn't have meant as much

Kevin said...

"yikes, 20 degrees below zero here right now (not windchill, actual temp)"

It's close to that here right now

JFreak said...

So glad Fox's run with cfb is ending.

They are terrible.
