  • Blog Post: DOPING OUT THE BOWL LOSERS

    The early bowls are best known for their "surprise" results. In many cases, however, the often aberrational results of the minor bowls are easily predictable by picking losers instead of winners. Some of you are no doubt saying, "I have no problem picking losers. It's winners that...
  • Blog Post: HANDICAPPING THE COLLEGE BOWLS - Stats to Use

    There are three sets of statistics from which to choose for the purpose of handicapping a Bowl game being played on a truly neutral field: 1. Neutral field statistics when they are available. 2. Away statistics for both teams 3. Overall statistics including Home, Away, and Neutral field games...
  • Blog Post: GRAND DAY FOR THE IRISH

    It was a wonderful day for the O'Shea's, O'Lucks and even Bill O'Reillys of the world yesterday, as one of their own, Barry O'Bama beat the Scotsman and was elected President. For those of you who are sad that Sarah the PILF (P for Politician) won't be winking at them from the...
  • Blog Post: TEASER OF THE YEAR? WHAT'S THAT?

    Last Saturday, a pay-after-you-win internet sports handicapper promoted a "Teaser of the Year." His recommended teaser was a 7-point beauty on Rutgers/Oregon. Both teams were favored by 5.5 points, and were teased to +1 1/2. Rutgers took a bath, making the teaser a hideous loser at odds of...
  • Blog Post: I-I-I-I-I-I'M B-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-CK (Plus UCLA/Tennessee)

    I was off in London for a few days for a whirlwind tour. I pressed the flesh with endless cockney floozies in the tube, ate fish and chips, bangers and mash, roast beef with Yorkshire Pudding (which is really some sort of bread and not pudding at all), steak and kidney pie, and English breakfast with...

  • Blog Post: HORRIBLE HANDICAPPING: A LESSON

    Last night, the total in the Motor City Bowl was set at 70. At the Crowne Club we had our biggest play of the Bowl season so far on the UNDER. Offensively, Florida Atlantic has averaged 25 points per game this season, and Central Michigan has averaged 30. The combined offensive points total 55 -- far...
  • Blog Post: HOCHULI RHYMES WITH DONAGHY & A FREE PICK

    Has anyone noticed that Hochuli rhymes with Donaghy? Based on the performance of Ed Hochuli and his crew in the last two games, it looks to me as if Hochuli could have more in common with Donaghy than just a rhyming name. New Orleans thouroughly dominated Minnesota on Monday Night, but lost anyway. It...
  • Blog Post: FREE PICK FOR A BAD ECONOMY

    That leprachaun laddie, Barry O'Bama, gave his first press conference today, just 3 days after he won the election. That's not bad considering President Wimpy didn't hold his first press conference for 3 YEARS after he was elected, and then it was to tell us all about how he, Georgie Porgie...
  • Blog Post: A CROWNE CHRISTMAHANUKAH GIFT

    It's a Chistmahanukah freebie from the Crowne Club. They call this game the Hawaii Bowl, and one of the teams is Hawaii, which may, if you are clever, tell you a little something about the home edge in the game. My proprietary information sources tell me that very, very few students will be jumping...
