My Sunday NFL Picks

It is another Sunday that will be full of Turkey, Family, and some FOOTBALL. Last week in the NFL, I won my bets, now let's see what I can do this week.

CIN vs BAL - take BAL at 1.22
MIN vs STL - take MIN at 1.16
PIT vs DET - take PIT at 1.16
OAK vs NYG - take NYG at 1.08 (as last reported Manning is playing)
TB vs PHI - take PHI at 1.08

This gives a combined odds of 1.91 on Partybets and with a $100.00 bet your return will be $191.00. Let's see if I can go 2 for 2.

I just had a look at the ProLine sheet for the same picks, and for some reason the NYG game is NOT on the ProLine sheet, but if you play the other 4 games you are getting better odds at 1.20 for those 4 games, but keep in mind that on ProLine a win is when the team wins by 4 or more points in regulation time, and Partybets a win is when a team wins by 1 or more points in regulation time.

Chris Neil A Real Team Player. What An Ass.

A day after their 3-2 overtime win over the New York Islanders, the Ottawa Senators seemingly brought that game intensity to practice where Chris Neil and Jason Spezza got into a skirmish.

The two forwards had a dispute during Friday's practice that saw Neil give Spezza a two-handed slash to the back of the legs, which led to Spezza returning the favour. When Neil dropped his gloves, teammates stepped in to stop it before the incident escalated.

After practice, head coach Cory Clouston downplayed the confrontation.

"That's all right," Clouston stated. "That's just intensity...they'll shake hands and make up."

When asked about the exchange with Neil, Spezza didn't know what caused it, but said he was glad that it didn't go further.

"I don't know what happened,” Spezza said. “Sometimes teammates get into it, it's no big deal.

"As soon as he dropped the gloves it was time to get out of there though"

This isn't the first time Neil has gotten into it with teammates at practice. In the past, he's had similar run-ins with Magnus Arvedson and Martin Havlat.

Way to go Neil, start something up at practice with one of the star players on your team for no apparent reason at all, Neil your a jackass.

ESPN The Magazine Body Issue Features Poker Pros

ESPN The Magazine Body Issue hit newsstands today and it feature semi nude pro poker players Jennifer Harman, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, and Scotty Nguyen.

After I saw the picture, I am pretty sure Jennifer Harman summed up my thoughts when she was reminded that the issue was on the shelves today, YIKES.

Anyways, good for these pros for shedding their clothes, just to promote poker in a national sports magazine.

NFL Sunday Bets

The NFL season is now in full swing, and I have decided that I cannot stay away from placing bets. I guess that is the gambler in me, and since I am to lazy to get my ass to the store to get a pro-line sheet and place my bets, I have signed up to Partybets.

Pertybets doesn't have a spread just a money line along with a whole bunch of special bets that include, 1st team to score, last team to score and so on, I prefer to just play the money line.

After going through the NFL games for today I have decided to bet $100 on 3 games today.

New York Giants over Kansas City Chiefs = 1.25
Idianapolis Colts over Seattle Seahawks = 1.16
San Francisco 49ers over Seattle Seahawks = 1.23
for a total odds of 1.78 x $100 = $178

If those games come through for me I will make a profit of $78 nothing big but hey it is a profit and plus now I have a reason to watch football today. Good Luck to me today.

You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

Forbes says Tiger Woods has become the first athlete to surpass US$1 billion in career earnings.

The magazine estimates that golf's top-ranked player crested the plateau when he earned $10 million for winning the FedEx Cup on Sunday.

Forbes reported on its website on Tuesday that Woods entered 2009 having earned $895 million since he joined the PGA Tour in 1996. Prize money, appearance fees, endorsement fees, bonuses and his golf course design business were calculated to have pushed him over $1 billion.

The magazine says former NBA great Michael Jordan and former Formula One driver Michael Schumacher, at $800 million and $700 million, respectively, are Woods' closest competition in career earnings.

All I can say to this, is WOW totally unbelievable
