DS 2013-2014 Pick 5: Back With a Whimper!!!

Postby BabaORiley » Sat Sep 07, 2013 2:37 am

Ok, I think it's fairly obvious that I run out of steam when it comes to posting this, but I'm feeling reinvigorated by the fact that both of my kids are now potty-trained and in school and I'm back in my lovely hometown of Austin.

If anyone needs a refresher course, I implore you to look back at maybe 2011-12's rules as last year's season just got on top of me too quickly. This is essentially a "pick 5 against the spread or totals" game, but you'd probably have as great a time trying to figure out when I'll lose interest in this (HINT: It DIRECTLY correlates to my actual wagering bankroll and FF success). While the winner gets nothing concrete, you get an offseason's worth of bragging rights and maybe, just maybe you manage to win some money (*NOTE: I'm obviously assuming we all have a residence in Nevada or have friends in the UK/Costa Rica/etc. *wink*)

On to the lines (as always, delivered to you from the fine, fine folks at bookmaker, who also deserve "credit" for finding a new way to screw up the formatting each year to make this more difficult for someone to run smoothly (thanks for posting all the times in PST and putting the limits up for each game! Next year, maybe Bookmaker can post this in Wingdings font in order to really keep a guy on his toes... Sheesh... As always, I shade the games to the nearest half-point based on the juice and when juice is -110 I just round up: example: NO -3 (-120) becomes -3.5 as the juice is shading the line that way...

Ha, welcome back buddy. Best to you, Hobbes. I'm fresh and bankrolled right now, though if I find myself compelled to bet any more college games involving 2 SunBelt teams (or worse) just take me out back and shoot me...

For the record, I love the following:
LA Monroe -41.5 vs. Grambling (I got this at 40.5 but that 1 point shouldn't really matter. Maybe a 56-3 game? 63-7?)
And sadly bet this:
Prairie View A&M +31 @ TX State (I like this scrappy TX State team, but a capper I respect has his power rankings around 21 instead of 31 for this one). I suppose Dennis Franchione and the road win against a hapless Southern Miss should boost this program for their home opener, but I'm gonna lean with this dude's power rankings here)

If I post anything else about NCAA FB that doesn't involve BCS Conference teams, seriously cut me off...

Also worth noting that I'm a much bigger fan of the slate of games I bet on August 5th:

ATLANTA +3-110 --- this one is actually moving against me, juice-wise...
TAMPA BAY -1½-110 --- 2 points of line value and a bet I should have truly maxed out
KANSAS CITY -3½-105 --- 1 point of line value
CINCINNATI +3½-115 ---1/2 point of line value
DETROIT -3½-110 --- 2 points of line value
ARIZONA +6-110 ---1.5 points of line value
GREEN BAY +4-110 ---Also moving against me by 1/2 point
DALLAS -2½-120 ---If this gets to a true Dal -3.5 (-110 or better), I may just try to middle this at 3.

4-1 start. Can't complain. Actually f**k that, I'll complain about deAngelo fumbling inside the f*****g 10 yard line in the 4th to cost a cover and possibly a SU win.
