“Losing is only temporary and not all encompassing. You must simply study it, learn from it, and try hard not to lose the same way again. Then you must have the self-control to forget about it.” – John Wooden
There was a time, not that long ago, when your fearless leader was down and out. He had been kicked out of his job. He had gambled poorly. The end was near, or so it seemed.
Then the sun came out. Adjustments were made. And a new week of gambling came. This week of gambling provided hope. A positive outlook. Selections were made. Success was achieved. All was well once again!
That’s right baby! The Show did not lose! Six wins. Zero losses. One push. Never any doubt! Gambling is about long-term outcomes. Any jackoff can hit it big one week. Any pro can stumble one week. But what determines success or failure is long-term results.
Speaking of jackoffs and failures, Jon and Ted join me once again for The Weekend Gambling Guide. The week of upsets in college football wreaked havoc on Jon and Ted’s selections. Now it’s time to see if they have championship mettle. Or if they will forever be bottom of the barrel.
Usually I start with my selections, because I’m a narcissist. And it’s my website. Today, I change it up. Partially because I want to let my guests be at the top of the page. Mostly because I left my pick sheet in the car and I’m in bed in my underwear.
First up this week, Jon Rich:
Arizona State vs Stanford UNDER 57
IOWA vs Maryland MONEYLINE
OKLAHOMA vs TCU MONEYLINE
SYRACUSE vs North Carolina MONEYLINE
VIRGINIA +7.5 vs Duke
MISSOURI vs Memphis MONEYLINE
LSU vs Mississippi State MONEYLINE
OHIO STATE vs Purdue MONEYLINE
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS vs Cincinnati Bengals MONEYLINE
WASHINGTON REDSKINS -2 vs Dallas Cowboys
Now for Ted:
This is redemption time cause last week was awful. This is a marathon and everyone can have an off week. Enough for the excuses.
Iowa moneyline vs Maryland -350
LSU -6.5 over Miss St,
Tennessee +29 vs Alabama
Denver -1.5 over Arizona on Thursday night.
Chargers -6.5 over Tennessee.
New England buy 1/2 pt -2.5 over da Bears.
Tampa buy 1/2 pt -2.5 over Cleveland.
KC -6 over Cincinnati
Atlanta moneyline -260 to add the last of your money on Monday night!
That should end a nice and profitable weekend!
