NFL WEEK 2 2010

UPDATE: We've guaranteed our second winning week in a row: the Fins won and the game was under (+200); the Pack rolled over the Bills (+300) and of course the Cowpokes lost (-110)- will we ever learn? So we are 5-2 on the season, and up 390 for the day and 735 for the season and all we have risked is 100 Rex Ryan's on the 4 pm game. We'll take it.

Suicide pool wise, we say goodbye to at least six players (we're still waiting for Rick Freedman's pick) : Michael Grieco (Ravens); Fake Alex Michaels and Kenneth Weisman et.al., (Cowpokes) and Mark Vargo for real this time (Titans), Stephen Immasche (Browns- although we salute him for living fast and loose) and Ifitkhar Memon (Cowpokes). See youse guys next year.

We start week two 3-1 and a healthy 345 Bradys in the blue.

Our first pick, is the Cheaters -3 on the road over the J..E..T..S...over over blown. We've seen better offenses run by Miami Highschools than the Jets have. The Pats have a dominant offense, and decent defense, and the Jets are deep in a whole, facing going 0-2 in their new house, and a blowhard coach that doesn't know when to shut up. 100 Pats -3.

Mr. Markus likes the Pats as well. He says he grabbed the early opening line of NE +1,- update-
the best we could find is the game even. But we take Mr. Markus at his word- which has always been his bond- and the fault is ours for not checking it out when he sent the email. These are the ways of the gambling world and what Mr. Markus did was grab the advantage when he saw it. He deserves this line. It makes our bet look sad, but we still like the Cheaters to romp in NYC. Uhhh... make that New Jersey, but you know what we meant.

The Fins travel to Minnesota, where the initial report is that Favre would be sitting because of his ankle. However we know have learned that Favre will be playing, however his ankle is giving him problems. Even without Channing Crowder, the Fins have a good defense and will look to run the ball. Meanwhile the Vikes have the best RB in Football, so they will also be a looking at the run first. With Favre playing this is a bit of a risky proposition, but both these teams were part of winning under bets for us in Week one, so we're riding the gravy train with an under 39 doncha know. 200 Henne's under 39.

The Packers play the Bills in GB and the line is Pack -13. The money line is Pack -700, which means you have the bet 700 Blakes to win 100. We're seriously considering laying the 1400 to win 200, but on further review the 13 doesn't seem like a whole lot against a Bills team that still hasn't found it's identity and just lost their best LB for a month or more. Pack -13 for 300.
This is also our bet in the weekly face off against everyone's faourite federal lawyer.

The Cowpokes. You would think we would have learned out lesson from our only loss so far this season and stay away from the team with the worst coach in the NFL. But the visiting Bears won on a bad call last week against the Lions, and the Cowpokes still have better talent and this is their home opener and their O-Line is healthier than it has been since the beginning of pre-season. So we look to get even (the worst thing a bettor can ever say) and put 100 Romo's on the home team.


Here's the suicide pool picks which are still incomplete. More Sunday before the games.


SUICIDE POOL:
First some house keeping: I got Mark Vargo's pick wrong last week. He picked the Packers over the Eagles, so the rumors of his demise are untrue. He lives to fight another week.

The Packers were THE hot pick this week, with Colby, Plea D, BTDT, David O Markus, Michael Feiler, Peter Sautter, Feet of Clay Kaiser, Fake Blecher, Miguel De La Over, 52nd Street Irwin; and Juan Gonzalez all jumping on the men in green.

Kenneth Weisman, et. al: Cowpokes; Mark Vargo: Titans; Cary Clennon: Falcons; Michael Grieco: Ravens; Fake Alex Michaels: Cowpokes. Rumpole: Packers.

Gutsiest pick of the week: second week in a row Stephen Immasche reaches deep into the bowels of the NFL and picks the BROWNS!!!?? who are starting a back-up QB

Remember when Miami Police used to make lots of arrests for obstructing an officer when lookouts would cry "99!" or "roller, roller, in the hole!" to alert drug dealers or gamblers that police officers were around?

Well, a parrot named Lorenzo was arrested in Barranquilla, Colombia for alerting drug traffickers to a police raid by screaming "Corre, corre, corre, que te coge el gato! (Run, run, run! The cat is going to catch you!). According to police, Lorenzo is one of 1,700 animals trained to alert drug dealers of approaching cops.

Where is Rick Freedman or Fake Rick Freedman on the suicide pool this year? Didn't he win it all last year.

Rumpole,
Your remark in the previous post that you "don't make mistakes" prompts this comment. Can you PLEASE stop throwing in apostrophes where they don't belong? In this post, you write about "a Bills team that still hasn't found it's identity." WRONG. The possessive "its" never gets an apostrophe. The only time an apostrophe is used is when you are contracting "it is" or "it has": It's a great week to bet against the Jets. It's been great to win money by following Rumpole's picks. Capiche?

Didn't feet of clay k pick the Vikings over the saints in week one?

Rumpole said...

Nope- CK picked Saints. He lives.

Pick Em Paulie said...

After a 1-0 week last week, PEP is up a nice $500. We can now afford one hour of Rump's time. This week, we go with only two picks.

Each pick flat bet for $500

Minn -5.5
Dallas -7

2010 Record
1-0-0 100% +500


BTW-Dont know where Markus gets his lines, but the Jets have NEVER been favored this week. My tracking service follows the lines at over 20 online and hotel sportsbooks and had the line with NE favored mostly by 1.5 to 3.0. If you were really sharp, you could get NE-1. The closest it got to even was at 5dimes.com casino where the line was even for ten minutes on September 14. It then jumped to NE-2. Dont know if he's much of a sports gambler, but he's reading the lines wrong.

Seems 16% of the 250 cleared by DNA, confessed to something they DID NOT DO.

As an avid Bears fan I am really tired of people saying we won on a bad call last week. It was a good call; it is a bad rule.
