Pats record as a Home Dog:

14-16 Overall, 21-8-1 ATS, and 17-13 Over/Under in these games.

Last loss as a home dog was
Nov 7th, 2005 (Pats + 4.5 & Total was 48):
Colts 40 - Pats 21     (The passing from Peyton Manning was too much for the Brady & Bunch)



Pats as Home Dog flew OVER 7 times in-a-row,
with the last Under for home-dog-Pats being
Nov 18th, 2001:  STL 24 - NE 17 (+8.5)    
Pats Won ATS, but Lost S.U. (total of 46.5 = Under)
as Kurt Warner passing beat up The Brady Bunch.

Hou favored over Pats before, as they are for TNF:
Oct 17th, 1993: HOU 28 - NE 14 (+6.5) & Tot 36.5    
Pats Lost S.U., and Lost ATS, & game went Over.

MLB's Wild WILD CARD


For Wild Card ties MLB lists no plan.
This year is an amazing year for it.

3-way tie in the NL: S.F., NYM, StL
is trouble enough for MLB...

But worse is a 6-way Tie in the AL:

Tor BJ's (83-69)
Remainder going 3-7
Final record: 86-76

Det Tigers (82-70)
Remainder going 4-6
Final record: 86-76

Balt O's (82-71)
Remainder going 4-5
Final record: 86-76

Hou Stros (82-71)
Remainder going 5-4
Final record: 86-76

Sea M's (80-72)
Remainder going 6-4
Final record: 86-76

NY Yanks (79-73)
Remainder going 7-3

Final record: 86-76

The key series for this nightmare
is the NYY @ Tor 4-game set this
weekend.  NY must win at least 3.

It's all up to  MLB's commissioner
Rob Manfred.  He can elect to use
a random lottery.

Or he can get fancy and seed the
teams 1 thru 6 based on
combined Win %age vs. other 5;
or based on run differential; etc.

The bottom 4 teams will play on
Monday, each winner advancing to
the next rounf to play the top 2
teams on Tuesday - with those
teams playing on the road against
Monday's winners).
Then the winners of Tuesday's
matches become the final
wild-card teams, playing in the
wild-card game on Wednesday.

3-Card Monte

3-C Monte's quite a card. And Psychologist for Snake.
Montero must play a role on a Cubs october roster,
even though that would mean carrying 3 catchers —
Jason the Ham, who's always lousy post-AS break,
can and should be cut, au last year's BJ's Buerhle.
Easy move for Maddon and the Cubs' front office.

3-C Monte was backstop for Jake's historic Cy run
last season; this year's Jake/Miggy posts 2.83 ERA.
Move to a contrary, catcher Contreras, and Arrieta’s
ERA balloon's up to 4.50 with kid Wilson.

Cubs' 2 righty plus one lefty catcher Monte can aid
splits for hitting opposing pitchers, but it's the Cubs'
ERA leading pitching who'll see the most gain:

David Ross catches Jon Lester strong since forever;
Kyle Hendricks has a 1.19 ERA w/ Willson Contreras;
So 3 catchers in 3 games spells familiarity & success.

I think it's a painful shame about Jose Fernandez
getting bumped off last night —
he was a truly nice person & GREAT pitcher.

I don't think it's going to grt traced back to
Nick Markakis, the Greek Mob & their bets in
Miami's last home game the other night.

R.I.P. Jose.

@home off a 6 (or more) point Loss vs. team scoring

Rifle Ron Jaworski called out Big-Pay-Jay:
"Anyone could see just by watching their
 mechanics, Wentz looked like the 11-year
veteran and Cutler looked like the rookie."

At the same time, Rifle Ron said nothing
about the sex tapes Cutler holds against
the Bears Big Brass.

Dak of Dallas teaches a lesson to the Bears
for passing him up the several times they
did with their several draft choices...
Sex Tapes deal means no threat
to Jay Cutler via a Draft/ Trade.

Dak 5 TDs in a route of da Bears.
Dallas -13.5 & OVER 44.

TheRams opened up as +3.5 road dog to TB.
The line has jetted up to +5 & some +6's.
Public money is driving this line.
The Rams match up well here
and TB is NOT a good team.
Dog of the week:  LA Rams.

Tennessee D has been stout & pretty efficient,
limiting foes to two total offensive touchdowns.
Oakland’s defense gave up
1,000 yards w/ avg
8 yd/carry,
and an avg of 4.5 yards per carry
and 113.5 yards per game to RBs.

Murray & Henry both will get a piece of Oak
and possibly combine for 300+ yards.  And
that will help out the passing game of Marcus
 Mariota and if Delanie Walker plays, look for
them to score 2 or 3 TDs.

Tennessee will shut down Oakland's
popular Wide Receivers & Carr
who seems like he had some Luck in
last year's NFL play.

DAL = DAK —> DEZ....DAM
(duh) Three letter 'D' words
dah Bears will suffer badly !

(487) Chicago Bears
(488) Dallas Cowboys

Prop bet on the Sunday Night Football


Dak Prescott who has poise in the pocket
and SEC-proven great decision making -
enough to beat Alabama !!!
He has made ZERO turnovers !!!

Dallas is back to running the football more
because they have the Ohio State stand out
star Ezekiel "Zeke" Elliott who dah Bears
can't and won't stop — so this will allow
the passing game to be wide open...
Dak to Dez to do what he does for TDs

Note that the rookie QB has no TD's,
so either he does it now or never on
PRIME TIME TV !!!

DEZ is the target of choice for all NFL
teams, so DAK to DEZ TD ==> YES (-110)

¡¡ Double up the size of your usual unit dose !!

COLLEGIATE GRIDIRON:

Louisville Cardinals at Clemson Tigers
5:00 PM PST, Saturday, 1 October 2016
Clemson Memorial Stadium, in Clemson, South Carolina

Both teams are talented with highly skilled and strong
players - but they can turn into seriously mean brawlers,
and as both are 4-0 for the year and play the same division
this would normally be a very, very low scoring game. 

But Lamar Jackson is NOT normal.  He is exceptional.
He's at least twice as good in passing and four times as
good of a scrambler and 10 times as good a runningback
as Dee Dee Bridgewater (the now sidelined with injury
QB for the Minny Vikings).  Don't forget just what D.D.
did as Louisville's QB vs. Florida in a bowl, a couple of
year's back, when Florida was an SEC powerhouse and
were really good (Fla beat a great FlaSt. that year easy).

Some six sexy points to consider:

1.) Lamar has more TD's by himself than all but four
QBs (three of whom are in unbalanced, offensive teams,
namely Cal, TexTech, Wash, along w/ Drew Lock, MIZ)
and has engineered more TD's than many TEAMS have!
Lamar averages 10.6 Yards/Attempt for 1330 total yds!
In comparison, no-slouch Watson for Clemson owns #'s
6.6 Y/A & 996 yds,  respectively.  Lamar's crazy legs and
acrobatic fullspeed cuts and spin moves have frozen stiff
a ton of defenders, thereby getting the Cardinals' TE's &
WR's wide open a lot, thus the 10 yard healthy chuncks.

2.) No one defender can tackle Lamar one-on-one, and
when teams keep seeing that, they go for the gang-tackle:
this clumps up zones, and defenders must commit early -
all in Jackson's favor, and his defense feels less pressure
such that Louisville can guess more often, stunt & blitz.
Most teams don't get this luxury vs. last year's #2 team.

3.) When Clemson's speed fails them, and fail it most
certainly will, they'll double team Lamar, most probably
each and every down assigning a shadow to key on him,
but Lamar is in possession of uncanny farfield vision; he
has and will find and hit the open men.  His nearfield
vision is probably also eagle-eyed since, as aforesaid.
nobody can tackle him.  Not even in "Death Valley."

4.) Last year Clemson caught the Cards on a short week
of preperation playing on Thursday, after the Cards lost
by one TD to Auburn to begin the year, and then lost an
even closer game 31-34 to an excellent Houston (likely
candidate to enter the BIG XII conference very soon),
whereas Clemson, in stark contrast to Lou's schedule,
played two utter cupcakes Wofford (+35 pts) and then
the following Saturday played Appal. State (+21 pts).
This year's scheduling provides far less easy advantage
to Clemson and should give Louisville a KO puncher's
chance to return the favor, giving the host a home loss.

5.) Clemson opened as a -3.5 to 4 pt favorite.  Tonight,
Clemson is a 2 point home dog.

As a home dog, Clemson is 9-15 Overall, 13-10-1 ATS,
and 8-11-1 Over/Under in these type home-dog games.
Clemson's last loss as a home dog came on a Saturday,
in 2013, October 19th to be exact, and grabbed +4.5 pts.
They weren't enough: Clem scored twice, 14 - 51 Fla St.

6.) WR Samuel sits on QB L. Jackson's left on the bench;

Vegas is the next victim


Cities that are desperate to land an NFL franchise, wind up
letting the NFL franchises' billionaire owners make the
municipalities pay out the nose for a brand new stadium.  

Oakland taxpayers wouldn't fork over their cash, electing
to spend it on schools, hospitals and city services instead.
So Davis will just move his Raiders, in order to grab cash.

NFL owners justify taxing citizens to subsidize themselves,
claiming "new jobs" and "improved infrastructure" and the
other "economic activity" that will ensue.  West Virginia's
Econ-Prof. Brad Humphreys' in-depth studies have proven
that a new stadium brings “no economic benefit.”  
All it does is move municipal monies to an NFL team, when
a city's monies could have gone elsewhere for the city's
own collective good.  The NFL owners' claimed "benefits"
are always way overstated and fictitious on purpose.  
And so the economic rationales for a new stadium in Vegas
are flat-out bogus, but the taxes on the citizens will be real
and the highest ever squeezed out of a city's citizens.

Nevada's Gov. Sandoval made up the "Southern Nevada
Tourism Infrastructure Committee last year to chart what
infrastructure improvements would keep tourism humming
in Las Vegas.  The majority of its 11 members were from the
casino industry, including the president of two properties
belonging to the Sands Corp., whose Chairman & CEO is one
Sheldon Adelson, now one of Vegas' most powerful men.  
He just bought out the Las Vegas Review-Journal last year to
sway the public on this "great for the public in general" deal.
LVRJ is by far the biggest newspaper in Vegas.  So now LVRJ
will no longer report on the synagogue sessions wherein
Adelson met with Davis.  The deal they plotted has the
Raiders offering to put up $500 million for a new stadium —
most of which would have to come from the NFL — and
Adelson would contribute $650 million, and the final slice of
$750 million must come from Clark County, and thus Vegas.
What Adelson gets for his $650 million was not divulged.

Next, this group went to the Las Vegas Tourism Committee,
which included one of the presidents in Adelson’s companies
who forced its hand-picked board to totally back every aspect
within the new stadium idea, then promptly commissioned an
"economic study."  This fake study concluded, of course, that
the combo of a small increase in the hotel tax plus an
upsurge in economic activity due to the new stadium would
cover the county’s $750 million burden.  

They're pretending that new tourists to Las Vegas would pay
everything via a "hotel tax" — so NOT Las Vegas taxpayers.
But it's improbable that at least one-third of the 65,000 fans
at a game would not be Las Vegans but out-of-towners who'd
stay in a hotel for 3.2 days and spend $375 million each year.
 
Thus, at least 217,000 people each year must fly to Vegas
just to watch the Raiders play football. Even if that many
seats could be set aside just for tourists, the LVTC's econ
study is still misleading, stating their dreamy assumptions
that this new stadium:
• Will attract a 2nd bowl game (besides the one it has now);
• Will double all attendance figures;
• Will attract two neutral-site CFB bowl games each year;
• Will host the very biggest events each year —
like the NCAA Final Four,
like the Republican National Convention,
like the Academy Awards ceremony (¿ not Hollywood ?)

"LVTC said it would take 25,000 people to build it, when it's
usually more like 3,000,” said Roger Noll, Stanford University
Sports Economist who advised some stadium opponents.
“They claim it will add 40,000 permanent jobs,” he said,
“No sane person would believe a number like that.”

Roger Noll concluded: “The fix was in.”

LVTC held its one & only meeting to allow critics to have their
say — they limited them to a mere three minutes apiece.

After the committee issued its report, the governor called the
legislature into a special session to ram through the bill that
authorizes the $750 million expenditure.  Legislators were
informed that the stadium would require nearly $900 million
more in road improvements, but only after the session began
in earnest.  Thus, all the other overdue improvements would
just have to be neglected at this time (in favor of all assets
put at the disposal of the NFL Owners).  The bill required a
two-thirds vote. In the assembly, the stadium supporters
were short several votes.  
But at the very last minute, after some behind-the-scenes
lobbying, some “nays” magically became “yeas,”
and it passed by one single solitary vote.

At an NFL Owners meeting in Houston, Davis insisted he's
going to move to Las Vegas, and told his fellow owners he'd
submit relocation plans in January. But Roger Goodell, the
NFL commissioner, pushed back and said that all things being
equal, the NFL would prefer to keep the Raiders in Oakland
where they are now.  Davis is not the most-liked owner, and
can’t move the team without getting the votes of at least 24
of the league’s 32 owners.

Since Oakland won’t hand Davis a public subsidy, the Raiders
will move in a few years, once a new Las Vegas Arena is built.  
Nobody even knows what Adelson’s role is now, let alone what
it will be if this bogus plan gets pushed thru upon the citizens.  
But he'll put up $650M out of the goodness of his heart - NOT.  

A Raiders move will be one sweet deal for Davis & Adelson
and their buddies on the same page in Synagogue sessions
— but the Mormons might yet throw a wet blanket on forking
over the largest public subsidy in history.
That's because it's their Clark County that will get none of the
cash flow from that stadium, zero from the parking, zero from
any and all naming rights, zero from the gates.  
100% of any money made goes to the team.

If tourists don't rush to see a Raiders game, a new hotel tax
won't cover the $750 million tab, and then the Clark County
taxpayers will be on the hook to flip the bill.

The Raiders going on a winning streak will pave the way..

Indians had 41 stolen bases against lefties = 2nd most in MLB + 80% success rate = 1st.
With how bad Lester is at fielding and even worse at holding guys on,
the Tribe will go running wild tonight.

The Tribe also needs this game more than the Cubs.
