THIS IS WHY THEY CALL IT GAMBLING!!


This is why there is no such thing as a CAN'T LOSE GAME. On Saturday Night I released a 10* Play to my clients. I don't like to use the L word but in our business it's a very popular marketing word. The L word I'm referring to is the word LOCK.  It gives the notion the game can't lose it's a cinch, Money in the Bank or whatever other cliche you want to throw out there. I made my Biggest Play of the Day and week on Arizona Saturday against Washington. Let's set the table.

Arizona is -3.5 and playing at Washington. Arizona has had two weeks to prepare while Washington had to return home after a gut wrenching loss to Notre Dame at South Bend in Overtime. Teams generally struggle following a OT loss in College Football so this was a great spot to fade Washington.

Also note that Washington hadn't won a game since they upset USC so I felt I had an outstanding situation to unload on Arizona and unload I did. Now take a look at the following stats and tell me how we lost the game?

First Downs Arizona  26-14
Total Yards  Arizona 461 -256
Time of Possession  Arizona 39:19 - 20:41


Hard to image that this game was even close let alone was a loser right? So what the hell happened?

Well Washington gets the Ball with 4:22 to go down 12 points and starting at the Washington 41 thanks to a nice kick off return. On an incomplete pass the defender lights up the Washington receiver and gets called for a personal foul which was the right call as he hit the guy 3 steps after the ball went by him. This moves ball to Arizona 25  and on 3rd and 10 Washington connects for a 25 yard TD pass with 2:55 left.

Washington has 2 time outs so they decide to kick off deep and play defense. Arizona returns the kick to the Arizona 37 yard line. On 1st down you run the ball to force Washington to burn their first time out right? No Mike is it Stupid or Stoops I always get it mixed up...decides to throw the ball.

Now that's why there is no such thing as a Can't Lose Game! I wanted to throw by drink thru the TV Screen but the only problem was I was at the M resort in the Sportsbook and since there was only one other game going on at the time it was on every TV so I would have had to throw about 25 glasses to take out all the TV's in the Sportsbook. And there is nothing more fun than watching the replay over and over on 25 TV's all at once!!!
