Bets of the Weekend

Colts +16.5 vs. Ravens  Bets $105 to win 100

The latest installment at QB for the Colts (Orlovsky) faired pretty well in his debut, tossing for over 300 yards.  He is facing the Ravens defense, not the Patriots, so that is a concern.  But I think the commish is smelling a tank job taking place in Indy and the coaches may have to actually try and cover someone this week.  Back door cover late in the game is expected.

Chiefs +10.5 vs. Jets  Bet $105 to win $100

The Jets are just not good enough to be giving ten and a half to anyone in this league.  Also Haley has his players still playing for him despite their record.  The Jets will most likely win this, but I think Sanchez has another uneven performance that keeps this close.

Bills +7 vs. Chargers  Bet $105 to win $100

Norv Turner is out in San Diego at the end of this year.  Have you seen this team play?  Weak is an understatement, coupled with the worst clock managers in the game.  The Bills are playing for jack in this one and I like it.  In all three of these picks I am taking road underdogs with nothing to lose (like me).  Pride still plays on Sunday, and when these spreads get big, opportunity knocks.

News & Notes

- Saturday night brings The UFC light heavy weight (205 lb.) championship match between Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.  Jones is a freak of nature.  One of his brothers plays for the Ravens, another plays for Syracuse.  He won the national junior college wrestling title before dropping out to start MMA.  He is only 24 and his moves are scary fast.  Right now you have to put up $550 just to win $100 on Jones, and Machida is no joke!  I could spend my last dollars on Jones, but I think I am going to wait for the proposition bet of “which round will Jones finish Machida” to be posted.  I will tweet/facebook this bet when it happens.

- Tiger’s first win, in an event he created and hosted?  Let’s not get to excited about this…yet.

- LSU Vs. Bama rematch is kind of boring, but it is the two best teams.

- Is there a Balco office in Anaheim?
