Week 3 Picks

September 23, 2006

I’m back after a long week of workin’ hard for my money! This girl needs a foot massage, cold beer, and a lot of football plus a little somthin’ extra!  I had a great week SU going 12-4,  but was a little pissed that some big teams didn’t take care of point spreads like they should have,  going just 9-7 ATS.

Bring it on this Sunday as we have a slew of great games!  Do the Jags keep rollin’?  The big mouth Chad Johnson is ready to fight back!  Bears vs Vikes in the Black & Blue Division!  Carolina and the Bucs fighting to stay alive already!  Are the Ravens due for another Shutout?  Turn on the AC/DC and let’s get to pickin’!  As always  SU-Straight Up and ATS-Against the Spread

1. Jets at Bills -6                          SU: Bills    ATS: Jets

2. Bengals at Steelers -1             SU: Steelers  ATS: Steelers

Week One Picks Recap

September 13, 2006

mmmm...Matthew McConaugheyWell, the games are all in and I’m shaking my ass a little! I always say the first couple of weeks of the season are the toughest; you’re wondering who is up to game speed when it counts and who are just the pretenders. I wasn’t the sharpest cutie in the world this weekend, but I did call some upsets and you can’t beat my pick of Seattle to win straight up but lose the spread!

Here’s a recap of how we faired with our picks from last week.  We’ll get through this faster than a three minute pump chump! 

1. Pitt was tough to beat at home with that great D and the usual Daunte screwups.  Won straight up; Won the spread. 

2. Falcons put it together every other year. We must be in the “good year.” Vick looks like he’s been listening to Sinatra and is going to do it his way this season. Is Carolina over-hyped? I had trouble with this pick knowing that Steve Smith was going to be out but I still thought Carolina at home was good.  Boy was I wrong!  Lost straight up; lost the spread.

3. Ravens took it to the Bucs like Jack Daniels and beer take it to your head the next morning. Ravens look like the old Ravens on D from 6 years ago. Bucs better get Simms right before their season gets ruined fast.  Lost straight up; lost the spread.

4. Couldn’t go wrong here could I?  Almost… lost the spread here but Tom ‘Hottie’ Brady pulled this one out just before ‘you know what’!  Won straight up; lost the spread.

5. Cincy took care of business like I thought. The line ended up being -1 and it was a steal.  Just because Herm Edwards took over as coach doesn’t mean the Chiefs will have a good D.  Won straight up; won the spread.

6. This game was one of two that really f’ing pissed me off! Denver is a much better team than this and they usually come prepared to win. Well, aberrations happen.  I’ll still be picking them a lot this year.  Lost straight up; lost the spread.

7. The Saints go marching in! Fun game to watch! I did think Cleveland would show some more offense. Even though I lost this one I love the fact that New Orleans has something to cheer about this week and I still believe the Browns will have some upsets in store for people this season. Lost straight up; lost the spread.

8. The Jets find Chad Pennington’s arm and it’s in Nashville! Gotta tell you I did wrestle with this one but had to go with the Titans at home. Good series for Vince Young until the INT but he’ll start showing up more and more. The Jets offensive line is young and going to be a good one as time goes by.  Lost straight up; lost the spread.

9. Philly was an easy pick, even when they got down 7-0 early. The Texans are regretting the Mario pick as we write. They still don’t have the players to compete and they don’t know how to win yet. Philly is looking tough again and McNabb looks more fit than ever. Won straight up; won the spread.

10. Here’s where I look like the genius that I can be from time to time. I told you they would win but not cover! Seattle has not been the best on the road and they got some shots put on them by the Marine(lli) led Lions. The Seahawks are going to miss Steve Hutchinson opening holes for you know who! They barely won the game but didn’t cover, proving that my ass still looks good even though I’m getting close to 28.  Won straight up; won the spread. 

11. Da Bears ran roughshod over Brett Favre! This one got ugly and I think everybody thought it would except those that live in Wisconsin. Backstreet boy Rex even threw a long TD pass. Won straight up; won the spread.

12. This was the other game that really pissed me off! Drew Bledsoe cost me money and I don’t like losing money on stupid f’ing INTs! This was ridiculous. Dallas had a chance to put the Jags away early and didn’t. Gotta hand it to the Jags they hung in there and played well in the second half, but please, without those INTs in this game, Dallas would have been the winner. Lost straight up; lost the spread.

13. The Cardinals are for real! Just hold on boys – yes they looked good on offense (again) but they should have easily covered this game by putting away the Niners early. The fact that they didn’t leaves plenty of questions on defense. The Niners have a much more mature Alex Smith and a good back in Gore. Look to play on them in some upset specials this season. Won straight up; lost the spread.

14. Indy just got by a very good Giants team. Had it not been for that terrible push off call on Tim Carter and some dumb mistakes by the Giants offensive line, this one would have gone to the home team. Giants will be a good team to put money on this year. Well coached, good lines on both sides, and some playmakers on both sides.  Won straight up; won the spread. 

15. Ahh! Another orgasm! Gotta love upsets on Monday nights! I don’t know what in the hell is all this bullshit hype about the Redskins this year. Due to a lot of luck last year they got by with a 10-6 record and then upset the Bucs in the playoffs. Trust me on this one -They’re a 8-8 team unless the ball bounces in their favor or some QB has an awful day. The Vikings are going to surprise people this year with a new head coach and Steady Eddie Brad Johnson at the helm. Look to play on them as underdogs this year! Won straight up; won the spread.

16. Did anyone think this would actually be a good game?  LT always goes off against the Raider nation and Aaron Brooks never fails to disappoint! The Raiders are a ship lost in a hurricane and the Chargers are looking to make a run at the AFC title. How about that ‘cutie’ Shawne Merriman?  Won straight up; won the spread.

There they are boys.  We have record of 9-7 straight up and 7-9 on the spread after the first week.  It’s not the best first week but that’s why it’s a LONG SEASON so keep coming back and listening to us.  Just like sex, it always gets better after the first time! 😉 


Week 1 Picks

September 7, 2006

Well here we go boys, opening night and it’s time to put your money where your mouth is!

If you want to make some money this fall, you’ll listen to the women. They teach you that in boyfriend and husband school, don’t they?

We’ve been taking money from my boyfriends for the past few years and this year we thought we’d go public. But before we get started just a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Never bet more than you can handle. No sense having your girl go hungry for a week because you liked a two team teaser after downing seven beers!
  2. Bet the same amount on every game.
  3. Don’t beat yourself up because you lose a few or have a bad couple of Sundays. If you follow Rules 1 and 2 things will be close to even by the end of the year. By doing your homework, not following the crowd, and listening to us a little more this Fall you’ll have more money in your pocket than your drinkin’ buddies come Christmas time!
  4. Have FUN! Keep that Brett Favre swagger at all times – whether up or down. Here’s the deal boys, girls love a little swagger especially when things are a little tight. It shows us you do well under pressure and will pick yourself up when the going gets tough! It lets us that you will be able to protect us and our kids.

Enough of that, onto the picks! We’re giving you straight up picks (SU) and picks against the spread (ATS). These were the lines at the time of writing.  They’ll probably change as we get closer to Sunday so watch your lines.  The picks in boldface are the games that we’re betting on.

1. Dolphins -1 1/2 vs Steelers: [SU] Steelers [ATS] Steelers

16. San Diego -3 vs Oakland: [SU] San Diego [ATS] San Diego

There they are boys! Have fun, drink some good beer, tip your bartenders well, and treat your girls to a little somethin’ extra this weekend (if you know what I mean)!

Maybe we’ll see you at the bar on Sunday.  We’ll be the girls whooping it up with our Jack straight up and our beer ice cold.

Luv ya!
