A TEASER FOR WEEK 12

The first thing that jumps out at us is that the Philly/Cheaters over/under line is 50.5 Very rare to see a 50 point line, and yet how many times have the cheater themselves scored in the 40’s this year? It helps if you cheat. Cheaters are also -22, which has got to be some kind of record, and again, how many twenty point plus wins have the Cheaters had this year? Stay away from this game. Too many uncertainties.

Vikes go to New Jersey to play the NY Giants. The line is Giants -7.5 and the over/under is 41. We like the under more than we like giving up that extra half a point. However, if you play teasers this is the game to tease.
Here is how it works: You risk 110 to win 100, and you get 6 points in a two proposition bet. In this instance we would say you bet 110 and tease the line to Giants -1.5 and under 47. Or you could tease the Giants to -1.5 and the Rams to +9. The Giants should win at home today, the question is will it be close. Longtime and careful readers will recognize that this is the very first time we have ever recommended a teaser, because in the long run they will break you, but today might be the day to take a plunge for some fun.


Woof woof.
Hear that?It’s a home dog barking. The St. Louis Rams: they call them butter because they are on a roll. Winner of their last two, the Rams are a home dog of +3 over the inconsistent Seahawks. Take a splash, and throw a bone to the home dog. Rams +3, or better yet, take the money line and lay 100 to win 155.

Houston versus Cleveland. Want the stat of the year? The Brownies are 9-0-1 on the over this year. Yes, nine of their ten games have gone over, and one has hit the number dead on. No surprise that the over/under in this shootout is 51. 51!!!!!???? Are these Browns for real? Maybe they are. We are wary of the over here, in fact we say buck the trend and take the under, and we like the Browns at home -3.5.


Dolphins not playing today and you’re looking for something to do? Check out the new Sidney Lumet thriller: “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead.” Phillip Seymour Hoffman….Marisa Tomei in a small but very well played part…Ethan Hawke who never quite makes it for us as the hero in his movies, but revels in the role of small time loser. This is a great film by a great director who makes great films (The Verdict, Serpico, Prince of the City, oh..and a little movie that happened to be the first one he directed: “12 Angry Men.” ) Sidney Lumet is 83. He has made 44 films in 50 years, and this ranks right up there as one of his best.

Is it Sunday already? The time off went too fast. See you tomorrow ready for trial.

Scary thought about how good the Pats may be this year.

Since the early 80's, there have only been two teams that have been a 21 point favorite in thier games. The latest was the 49ers over the Bengals in 1991. Twice in 24 years.

The Pats are going to be 20+ point favorites 3 times in the next 5 weeks.(Today vs. the Eagles, in a few weeks vs the Jets and the week after vs. the Fins)

If you wish to participate in the blog, kindly refer to them by their proper or given names: The Cheaters, or the New England Cheaters. They cheat and they win.

What are the chances of the Dolphins setting an NFL record for futility and going 0-16? Miss us?

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

To answer an earlier blogger's question posed to the Captain:

Circuit Court Group 18's incumbent is Judge Jon Gordon. The only person to file in that seat so far is Migna Sanchez-Llorens.

Ms. Llorens filed on January 18, 2007 and has reported raising only $3,800 to date. She last ran for office in 2006 when she opposed Shelley Schwartz for the County Court Group 27 seat. Schwartz beat Llorens 71,051 (51.4%) to 67,236 (48.6%).

If anyone thinks they can compete against Migna, they should first do their homework and look at that 2006 election.

By all accounts, it was the most expensive election for a seat on the County Court bench ever. The two candidates spent in excess of $500,000; (Schwartz spent $287,000 and Llorens spent $216,000).

Sanchez-Llorens took $177,500 out of her own pocket to fund the campaign.

She spent that money on a host of consultants including:

Robert Pertierra, Al Lorenzo, Lizette Maranon, and Bob Levy ($104,00 between those four) and lesser knows such as Zaida Nunez, Josie Portier, Charesse Chester, Daisy Castellanos, Opal Jones, MV Almer, Agustin Garcia, Felix Baez, and others...

Presently, Llorens is the only unopposed candidate running in an open seat.

So, who is the brave one that will step up to the plate and challenge Migna Sanchez-Llorens?....

CAPTAIN OUT .....

Nice try with the CWT bait but you have to get up earlier to trap me with that!

12:06- Vanilla Wade has risen to his level of incompetence. I give him credit for only not screwing up what is apparently a good team. Wade is a mediocre coordinator who will be exposed for what he is-a run of the mill vanilla coach.

Speaking of run of the mill and mediocre- Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin come to mind. The Giants need to clean house, and they need to do it now. Fire Coughlin. Trade Manning for Kurt Warner (OK that's a little extreme) but this is a talented team that is going no where fast. I won't make the mistake of believeing they can win a game they should win at home again. Believe you me.

migna has no money left and is an easy target.

No, the most expensive county court race was in
2000, Krieger-Martin v. Quirantes.

Captain Queeg...you appear to have confirmed your identity as a PR flak. Despite her last name and big bucks MS-L she was unable to defeat SS. No one's a shoo-in until the fat lady sings. RB, JV, etc.... the field is replete with failed judicial wannabees...and some may make it, but it's a Mexican Hat dance until noon of qualifying day. Cordially, Fake Anonymous
