Okay. I was playing around with some pro-line. I'm only spending $30, but the bets have to be in by midnight tonight. For those that have never played, you have to pick three games right to win. So I'm gonna buy 3 tickets @ $10 each.

But none of the underdogs really jump out at me this week. Maybe the Giants have a shot against Atlanta.

I have so little faith in the Jets I wouldn't even bet on them facing Miami; and while I used to pull for the Cowboys I can't help but hope for a major upset by the Texans and see what happens to Owens. Will he stop speaking to Parcells too?

Okay, so I'm thinking of taking a few educated guesses followed by some gimmees.

Buffalo over Lions, backed by Denver and Chicago. ($10 ticket pays $30)
Philly by more than a touchdown, Cincinnati and San Diego ($10 ticket pays $40)
and what the heck,
Giants, Winnipeg and Bears ($10 ticket pays $70)

If anyone has any better suggestions try here

Thing with buttons? You mean your mouse? :P

If you are referring to the web page, the first thing you do is click football on the left hand side. Then you get a list of pro football games this week (CFL and NFL).

Along the top you will see V+, V, T, H, and H+. V+ means visitors win by more than a TD, V means visitors win by more than a FG, T means the game is decided by 3 points or less, H means home wins by more than a FG, H+ means home team wins by more than a FG. Pick 3 games and a "ticket" will be created. You can then alter the bet on the ticket.

ah, thank ya Don... maybe this will help you too:

Cincinnati -6 At Tampa Bay
Looks like Tampa has a quarterback at last... but I don't think it's enough... Cincinatti has two weeks of sitting on that awful beating from the Patriots and should take it out on this Tampa team quite easy... BENGALS

At Washington -10 Tennessee
Heh... with this awful Redskins offense, they shouldn't give ten points to Howard :P.. Tennesse got some spunk to them though.. they should cover... TITANS

At Dallas -13 Houston
Well the Texans beat the Dolphins... but Dallas should be looking to take last week out on someone...ugh... maybe Parcells and Owens can take a one way flight together :P

Buffalo -1 At Detroit
Lions.. HA!! The Bills get to be the slapp-er and not the slap-ee.. BILLS

Seattle -3 At St. Louis
Telling game for both teams I think... the Rams aren't really 4-1 good and Seattle needs to rebound here too.... it's a shame though, the Rams are playing good enough football but I NEED a big day from Hasselbeck :-)... SEATTLE

At Atlanta -3 NY Giants
Well he's a Fraud but for a week he's the best damn QB in the NFL...what ya gonna do brotha when Fraud-a-mania runs WILD on you ?? And personally the core of the Giants is too arrogant and is gonna believe they won something last week and half show up for this game...... FALCONS

Philadelphia -3 At New Orleans
Another reality check game for the Saints here... the Eagles have looked dominant all year long (minus one quarter) and I don't see this game as any different... not to mention the Saint pass defense = AWFUL!....EAGLES

At Baltimore -3 Carolina
Well it seems when I think Carolina is good they lose and when they stink they win... so I think Carolina will lose here.... so... PANTHERS

At NY Jets -2.5 Miami
Miami is bound to win a game sooner or later and it would add some fun to see Joey Harrington look like Joe Montana for three hours of suffering.... so since I have to go to this I might as well spread the misery.. MIAMI

San Diego -10 At San Francisco
the 49ers are feisty and I don't think they will lay down again like they did with the Chiefs....I do think they can keep it close and playing against some Marty-ball will help... 49ERS

At Pittsburgh -7 Kansas City
Two teams that are on the down this yea...I do think the Steelers will win, but by seven is a LOT...even in the Herm 3-point offense... take the safety....CHIEFS

At Denver -15 Oakland
Is Denver really capable of scoring 15 points ??? Well since they may only need to get 16 to cover with their D.... I'll take that chance! (and it's my suicide pool pick too!).... DENVER

Chicago -10.5 At Arizona
A year ago you would wonder if the Bears have enough offense to cover this game.. now you wonder why it's "only" 10 points...I guess the Bears are due for a letdown... but come ON... it's the Cardinals!!!.... DA BEARS

I don't even know why the Seahawks put a defence on the field. They would get better results by staying on the sideline and praying that the other team doesn't score.

How to get the underdogs to win: Have me bet on the overdogs.

New Orleans is KICKING some Eagle ass. They just scored a TD with seconds left in the half to go up 17-3. :doh1:

Worse still... it appears that Buffalo is the slapee again.

Holy crap the Bills suck. Their pass defence was just awful today.

So I'm still alive on my Giants-Blue Bombers-Bears ticket. I spent $30 on tickets and Giants-Blue Bombers-Bears pays $60, so I can still double my money despite the Bills and Eagles upsets. I can see how gambling increases the interest. I typically don't buy Pro-line, but given that my Patriots have the bye this week as do the Colts (the other team I like to watch) I figured it would add some spice to some games I really don't give two sh!ts about. And it did. Typically I would die of boredom watching Bengals vs TB, but since I had money riding on the game it MADE it interesting.

you ain't seen suck until you have suffered a Dolphins game in person :P

they had receivers wide open all over the freaking place and NOTHING... not to mention the awfulness of the rest of the offense too... I was ready to call it a game at 3-0 (and ok go see real football....)

but to make it short, what you say today was the Dolphins all year... look like stumbling retards all first half... defense plays tight.... Ronnie Brown gets a bunch of yards.... go down double digits... make a comeback in the 4th quarter... make it close, make you WANT to watch in the bar and then fvck it up on the very last play... GF was trying to give me grief in the car for rejoicing that we left at 6-0, and I told her this and she watched in awe as Mare botched the late FG!

I see him as 2-9-? - he didn't reveal his pick on Houston-Dallas.

But I went 4-8, so I can't exactly be proud. I'm now about 10 games below .500 picking against the spread so far this year.

You are correct Tri. I just assume he always picks Dallas ;). I also cannot do math. He did lose on Eagles/Saints so 2-9.

Unbelievable finish there. I called the Bear win when Arizona went 3 and out. Why on earth would Denny Green punt it to Hester? Wow. Big mistake there. Hester has been doing that for a while. Awesome return. He burned those guys and left them in the dust. :lol:

That btw was the only way Chicago was winning that with Rex Grossman at QB.


Did anyone see Green lose it in the postgame interview? Man.
