UPDATE! WHAT A DAY! Rick F and BDTD are out of the suicide pool as the Browns stun the Saints and Miguel De La Over and Plea D were down to the wire as the Ravens squeaked out a win in OT. With two people left, this is a good time for us to announce.....
SUICIDE POOL 2.0!! Week Eight till the end of the season. Anyone game?
Mr. Markus took the Jags +9.5 at KC and lets see....KC won by about 200, so DOM takes a loss while we romp with the Falcons over the Bengals and add 300 to our kitty as well.
Rumpole is 5-2 while DOM is a pedestrian 3-3-1. We we're up 360 for the year and we won our two team teaser, so we're up 600 for the day, but 300 of that is committed to the IF bet on the Cowpokes. Either way we're well in the black for the week, and 13-11-1 for the season.
It's a beautiful day here high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, especially when we're winning.
Suicide pool: Miguel De La Over and Plea D have taken the Ravens and then nevermore;
Rick Freedman and BTDT march with the Saints.
We're at the Starbucks here in Truckee, on the Donner pass (stop by and see us, the latte is on us!) , and internet is spotty up here at best. We are writing this Saturday night and may not be able to get anything else up for Sunday before evening your time.
Rumpole v. DOM: Falcons -3.5 over Bengals, and put us down for 300 Matt Ryans as well.
FIRST TEASER OF THE SEASON! Remember that teasers pay 11-10 and you get an extra six points per team:
Bucs -3 (teased to +3) over Rams for 200 and...
Philly at Tennessee over 43 (teased to over 37)....laying 330 to win 300. And while we're at it, lets play an IF. IF the teaser, then
Cowpokes -3 over Giants.... so if our teaser wins, then we are laying 300 on the Cowpokes.
We called our favourite guy, known to you readers as 52nd Street Irwin, who currently and permanently makes the lines out in the sands of the desert of Vegas for a legal book, and he said we could actually parlay the teaser bet on the cowpokes but for complicated reasons it's better to play the IF bet.
Next week: IF and REVERSE bets.
