We like the Texans at home -3 and the under 45 against our Dolphins. Sorry Fins, it's strictly business. Texans -3 +100 and under 45 +100. In fact, lets do an "IF" bet. IF Texans -3 (100) THEN under 45. So, if the Texans win by more than three then our 200 gets rolled on to the under. We can only lose 120 (110 if the Texans don't cover or our 200 on the under bet, of which we won 100 and the 20 unit vig.) We can, and hopefully will, win 400.
The Chargers at home -4.5 against the Patsies. Look for San Diego to rebound nicely +100.
Giants at Cleveland and Eagles at San Fran each have an over/under line of 43 and we like the over in each 50 units each game.
Rumpole Redskins. Duh.
Rick Freedman Redskins.
MCCAIN CAMPAIGN MELTDOWN? If you read this BBC article it's almost as if McCain's campaign has melted down. Congressman John Lewis, a leader of the Civil Rights movement from the 1960's cautioned McCain against inciting racial hatred. McCain (who has recently said Congressman Lewis was one of the men he admired most) responded by saying the accusation was "beyond the pale." McCain finds himself at rallies trying to calm crowds inflamed by his VP pick who are screaming that Obama is a terrorist and an Arab (as if being an Arab was a bad thing.) All in all the BBC article gives the appearance of a campaign responding to fires, not controlling events. (BTW. We would not at all be surprised to see that the Obama campaign was behind Lewis's statement and that it may have been long planned. Politics is a rough sport.) It's sad to see this American hero undone by the right wing of his party, especially since he was one of the true Republicans that used to shun their fascist tactics.
Make sure you read yesterday's post.
