It’s time to brag! I’m on fucking fire. The site is on fire. The podcast is on fire. Teddy is on fire. Even Jon is lukewarm! It’s the world famous Weekend Gambling Guide baby! #WGG on Twitter. @5starshowtime or @TheFiveStarShow on the blue bird. This week, I make my LARGEST SINGLE BET I’VE EVER MADE! You excited? I am excited!

This is the biggest Weekend Gambling Guide of the year! Last week, I introduced Guest Picker Teddy and he went 4-1. Jon was banished to the comment section. What does he do? He goes 8-4. And your fearless leader went 7-1! So this week I lift the ban on Jon, temporarily, so you’re getting picks from all three of us!

Before I continue, it’s time to plug everything else going on with The Show this week. Friday I will give you my final WWE Super Show Down predictions. Saturday at 3:30am CST I bring you my WWE Super Show Down Pre-Show on YouTube. Search The Five Star Show. I will have a YouTube post show after the WWE event. Then I will have live coverage of UFC 229 Khabib vs Conor on YouTube and Twitter. And of course the site will be up to date with information as well.

We will have the Podcast recapping everything that happened on Monday. You can hear the podcast on SoundCloud, Stitcher, TuneIn, and We have a special advertising deal going on as well. $25 per month or $100 for 6 months of advertising! That’s just over $6 a show if you do monthly payments or $4 a month if you commit to six months of ads.

Now that my plugs are in… let’s get to the gambling!

Now for my guests!

First up is Ted. Ted is coming off a fantastic debut on The Weekend Gambling Guide! His record stands at 4-1. Can he backup his strong debut with a good second week? Let’s see what he’s got for you this week.

Alright starting out strong this 1st week of October. Thursday play is put the kids college education money on the Patriot money line … Patriots -550 over Indy.

Next grab some early easy money on the Dodgers -170 over Atlanta in game 1.

In college football Saturday in Boulder … Colorado at 5-0 as they cover -2.5 over AZ st.

In the NFL go ahead and buy 1/2 pt to take KC over Jax -2 1/2. Broncos -1 over the Jets.

Eagles bounce back but buy a 1/2 pt again -2 1/2 over the Vikings.

Saints nice win -275 in the money line over the Washington Native Americans.

Cincy -6 1/2 over Miami.

That should make you an early chunk of change to start October … Talk to a wealthier you next week!

Finally it’s Mr. Jon Rich. Jon was banished to purgatory, also known as the comment section, last week. With a solid 8-4 record, he has risen back to the main article. You’ve been to depths of hell in the minor leagues. You don’t want to go back to that dark place. Mr. Rich, welcome back to the big show.
