  • Blog Post: 2011 Super Bowl Odds:

    It is NEVER too early to start looking at football futures.

  • Blog Post: The Detroit Lions suck worse than you think......

    I have been a Detroit Lion's season ticket holder since #20, Barry Sanders, dazzled football fans everywhere with a playoff victory against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Blog Post: NFL Football Picks: Can the Browns Salvage the Home Underdog on MNF?

    There is one constant in sports gambling. That constant is that by the time the masses catch on to something to the point they can beat the bookie, things will change in the opposite direction. In this example, I am referring to the infamous home underdog on Monday Night Football. The season started...
  • Blog Post: Are you ready to bet some football?

    Every year the crowning of the NBA Champion, followed up by the MLB All-Star Game is the precursor leading into the greatest time of the year; football season.

  • Blog Post: Would you sell your soul for winning football picks?

    It is close to that time of the year when the "King of Kings" when it comes to gambling returns: Football. Basketball, baseball, hockey, etc all pale in comparision to betting on football.

  • Blog Post: Ben Roethlisberger's Police Report

    Oh Ben Roethlisberger. Nothing like going from the favorite son of Pittsburgh to being the next Mike Tyson. It always baffled me on athletes when it came to ANYTHING from groping to the far end of the spectrum, rape. I have friends that are deadbeats who can go into a bar and pull a hot chick and a few...

  • Blog Post: NFL Survivor Contest: Picks, Tips and Predictions

    I love to gamble. I am also not afraid to admit that I love to gamble when there is no edge in my favor. For every time I find an arbitrage where if you bet $1000.00 on Team A at +130 and $1250.00 on Team B at -120 and win $45.00 no matter who wins (once per day makes you an extra $16,000 per year),...
  • Blog Post: Do you remember your 1st bet?

    When I say "bet", I mean one with a book or offshore. The first money that ever exchanged hands on a sporting even was in 6th grade when I bet this chick from Arizona in my class on the Michigan-Arizona Rose Bowl. Wolverines lost and Karen got a handful of change. Johnny Detroit's first...

  • Blog Post: Fantasy Football Experts: Johnny Detroit needs your help!

    I must admit, despite being around football and gambling since running parlay cards during Junior High, I have never played fantasy football. Watching people in these nerdy little leagues and acting like it was "cool" always annoyed me. Personally, I felt the fantasy football people were people...
  • Blog Post: Does football suck this season or is it just me?

    First off, I am not referring to the horrible weekend I had with my selections or the fact I am under 50% in college football (still doing well in pro ball though).

  • Blog Post: With football around the corner.....

    It makes me think of my first involvement with gambling. Running those infamous white football cards.

  • Blog Post: The Pro Bowl is the worst......

    Outside of Major League Baseball, All-Star games are usually garbage. Granted the NBA and NHL put up 10 times more points versus a regular season game, but for the most part they are a joke.
