The Experts

September 19th, 2018

NFL Locks

They’re coming out of the woodwork. The Experts are everywhere.

After our Jacksonville pick a National sports gaming “expert” came out and said it was a “cute” pick. He then explained why the expert pick was New England.

Lemmings across the country pumped money in New England’s direction.

The problem with experts is they fall in love with their “expert” reasons, whether it’s the center is hurt, yards per completion, red zone percentage, coach, or quarterback.

They then marry their reasons, make their picks, in some instances even sell their picks and then, when they lose, they’re left scrambling for a mistress or divorce attorney.

What they’re missing is the forest from the trees.

The linesmakers know all the expert information. In some cases, they create the information.

Betting against the Vegas wiseguys is a slippery slope if you think you can get the edge on them by studying time of possession or quarterback play in warm weather.

Brass tacks: The Buffalo Bills are, arguably, the worst team in the NFL. They’re 0 – 2 with 23 points for and 78 points against.

Week 3 Buffalo travels to Minnesota in an unwinnable contest against the now mighty, Kirk Cousins-fueled, Vikings.

The Vikings are 1-0-1 with 53 points scored and 45 points against.

The line opened at 16.5 and it’s going higher. No one in their right mind is betting Buffalo.

Or are they?

We’re waiting until game time and our Week #3 NFL Lock of the Week ™ is:

Buffalo +18 @ Minnesota

The Deep State and Fake News – NFL Locks ™

September 14th, 2018

The Donald recently tweeted about The Deep State, the Left and Fake News while Mainstream Media tried to smile. “Nothing to see here,” they murmured to themselves. Meanwhile, back in the streets of Dallas, JFK’s head went back and to the left.

  • @realDonaldTrump

    The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going Crazy – & they don’t know what to do. The Economy is booming like never before, Jobs are at Historic Highs, soon TWO Supreme Court Justices & maybe Declassification to find Additional Corruption. Wow!

Las Vegas flunkies, like myself, we watch the seasons come and go. How quickly we forget.

Over the years, you would’ve gone broke betting against Brady and Belichick. How quickly we forget, too.

This week, we’re dropping a dime and letting our faithful followers know, our NFL Week #2 Lock of the Week ™ is:

Jacksonville +1.5 vs New England                        W

NFL Locks

-Michael Coreleone, The Godfather, Part III

Just when I thought that I was out, they pull me back in.
–  Max Steingrout, Las Vegas Legend

Fanning flames of flames past, one wonders if embers or charred remnants remain?

To wind up back where it all began is a wistful and wondrous thing (as is automatic spell check).

Back in the day when we were banging on the door of Caesar’s sportsbook to open, we knew the line before they did.

We knew, too, when they made a mistake.

Sometimes we’d bet heavy paper early and even heavier paper later. We called it: “market correction.” Often we’d win both sides of the bet and everything in between.

Similarly, when we sold this site to the news & entertainment lightweights that now own it and they decided to change the format to “take on the big boys.”

I knew they made a mistake.

Now, as weed and gambling has become legal across the country, they come crawling through the desert on their hands and knees asking me to write their weekly NFL betting column.

How could I refuse?

The beginning of the betting season, especially: this betting season, offers experienced bettors an opportunity to earn additional income.

Nobody, but nobody, beats the wise guys.

However, if you can find the forest from the trees, you just might find, you can win often enough to squirrel a nut from the woods.

The lines makers aren’t trying to win the bet, they’re trying to spread the risk evenly and take home the vig.

Opening night is Thursday, September 6th.

We smell an opening line mistake.

Our NFL Locks ™:

Philadelphia -1.5 vs Atlanta                       w

RFK – Destiny Betrayed

June 29th, 2018

June 6, 1968-

New Orleans District Attorney, Jim Garrison worried for Bobby’s life.

He received word the Senator believed his conclusions regarding the assassination of his brother. Garrison understood if he knew what Kennedy thought, so did his enemies.

Garrison warned him and, as the only way to protect himself, pleaded for him to go public.

Through an intermediary, Kennedy let Garrison know he was going to do just that … after he won the California primary.

The CIA was desperate. Time was running out.

50 years ago, RFK was assassinated at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after delivering his California primary victory speech.

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

– RFK  (University of Cape Town, South Africa, June 6, 1966)

Jackie Mason

June 12th, 2018

In 1967 funnyman Jackie Mason ignored multiple warnings, death threats and bullets, and continued to tell Frank Sinatra – Mia Farrow jokes.

He didn’t think it was so funny when, sitting in a car outside a Florida apartment complex, Mason had his nose & cheekbone shattered by a goon wearing brass knuckles.

”We warned you to stop using the Sinatra material in your act,” the goon told him.

Mason stopped using the Sinatra material.

Back In The Day …

June 1st, 2018

We had Bogie and Becall, Tracy and Hepburn, The Duke, Everly Brothers, Andrews Sisters, Marilyn and The Mick.

Olives swam in our martinis.

Ol’ Blue Eyes sang big band accompanied swing songs.

Communists hid in Hollywood and in our Brylcreem jars.

Then Elvis shook his hips.

Protestants disapproved and cried “Hide the children’s eyes!”

Baptist ministers tried not to look in fear of God’s reprisal.

Girls in tight sweaters endeared themselves to boys in tightening slacks.

The British invaded.

Eddie Albert sang: “Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.”

Eva Gabor implored: “Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue.”

We dropped acid at Woodstock.

Hippies with long hair.

Vietnam snowballed.

Nothing was the same.

The Domino Theory was in play.

Lenny Dykstra Arrested

May 25th, 2018

But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving It’s like I got this music in my mind, sayin’ gonna be alright –

Verdict: Conspiracy

May 2nd, 2018

The question should have never been “who killed JFK?”

The answer has always been obvious.

Since before the bullets in Dealey Plaza flew there was evidence of conspiracy.

Cornered in his library the still astute octogenarian, Dick Goodwin, asked if I’d read the books. He assumed I did and understood this was the reason for my unannounced visit/ambush.

I rolled the tape (actually pressed the button on my camcorder) and, when I suggested the CIA might of been involved, for the first time, I saw a glimpse of the infamous L’Enfant Terrible’s notorious temper. He quickly, and for the record, stated he never saw any evidence of the CIA being involved in the assassination.

I mentioned otherwise, Mexico City, Oswald’s activity with the Fair Play for Cuba and the post-assassination “Castro dunnit” operation.

But I wasn’t there to debate.

President Trump’s unlawful mandate to continue to allow records from the murder of our 35th president, almost 55 years ago, to remain hidden, proves, again, just how nasty this conspiracy is.

We’re still being lied to.

 

 

 

… We’re back!

April 26th, 2018

Some say it’s sad but true, we’re not sure it’s either.

We are happy to announce: We’re back!

That’s right, not unlike the young Han Solo we were flash-frozen on February 12, 2018 news.

That’s a tough thing for a glorified blog calling itself a breaking news website.

Rest easy. We’re happy to report we’re breaking news every 5 minutes. So refresh your browser and visit often.

You just might learn something.

The Mid-Life Crisis

March 7th, 2018

mid-life crisis

As the human male ages his production of testosterone slows, accompanied by: hair loss, weight gain, and the diminished ability to make decisions.

Characterized by leadership roles, the loss of decision making skills can be devastating to the species leading to feelings of fear, failure, self-doubt & depression.

The loss of decision making skills can be especially ruinous to the aging, professional sports bettor.

Walk into Caesars’ Sportsbook and look into the eyes of the senior gambling degenerates. There’s nothing there. Vacant, empty stares. There’s no one home. No hope, no spirit. No God.

Sometimes the aging human male lashes out, making irresponsible, irrational decisions, or series of decisions, often referred to as: “the midlife crisis.”

Victims turn to drinking, drugs, gambling, prostitutes, Corvettes, & semi-dysfunctional Sports & Entertainment blogs …
