2016 NFL Week 17 – Betting Picks Against Spread

matt mcgloin Week 17 Oakland Raiders playoffs NFL YODAI finished 9-7 last week and suffered a few bad beats. I want to end the regular season with a strong week, but Week 17 is usually a crap shoot.

I’ve spent the last couple days battling a horrible flu. I did have a chance to study who may sit Week 17. I also explain which teams still have something to play for this Sunday.

A lot of weird stuff happens during the last week of the season. We are almost guaranteed to have some receiver or running back have 200+ yards or some backup quarterback pull a ‘Matt Flynn’ and throw for a ton of yards. Can Raiders backup QB Matt McGloin be this year’s Week 17 surprise?

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 17 of the 2016 NFL season.

The Movies that Made Us All Want to Win Big

run lola run casinoHollywood has always loved casinos. Over the years, countless films have taken advantage of the unique atmosphere and ambience of casinos to tell stories of dramatic gambles and life-changing wins.

It is no coincidence that the popularity of casino games has skyrocketed in the past 30 years, following the release of several films that changed the way people viewed casinos, and created a mystique around particular games that captivated theatre audiences.

Movies like Casino, Ocean’s Eleven, and Rounders made a huge impact on cinemagoers, and for many avid gamblers it was a movie experience that sparked their interest in games like poker and blackjack, long before they ever set foot in a casino.

John+Caliperi+Kentucky+Bubble+Team+2013+NCAA+TournamentThe NCAA Tournament is right around the corner and teams pushing to win their conference tournaments and assure a spot in this season’s ‘Big Dance’.

There were a few smaller conference upsets that limited the number of at-large bids the larger conferences usually dominate.

Many of the teams on the “bubble” are perennial favorites, like Kentucky who want to defend their title. A few newcomers are also on the bubble, like La Salle who haven’t made the NCAA Tournament since 1992.

Which current bubble teams are safe to receive at-large bids and which teams still have work to do? Continue reading

NHL Talk: Bad Refs, Viktor Fasth & ‘Bros Night Out’

Ted+Movie+Bong

Two hockey guys talking hockey.

Joe Pasquali and Eddie Theisen are two die-hard NHL fans. They both watch every hockey game, every night (almost).

The guys talk about Viktor Fasth, bad referee calls, who is the best goalie in the Western Conference and if Colorado’s “Guys Night Out” is the NHL team’s ticket promotion with the most popped collars.

It’s also National Chili Day. It’s an excuse to eat your weight in Skyline Chili.

By the way, neither of these guys have a girlfriend.

This is their email conversation the following morning. Continue reading

2013 Fantasy Baseball: Top 30 First Baseman + Sleepers

Albert+Pujols+2013+Los+Angeles+Angels+MLBFirst Base is the deepest position in fantasy baseball this year.  A first baseman who swing for the fences are not hard to find in 2013. You add that group with the recent trend of young catchers playing their off days at first base and you understand why this area is so deep.

Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder are in the second year of their American League switch. Will they see a stat increase or will pitchers figure them out?

A group of young first baseman are entering their prime. Will Freddie Freeman, Anthony Rizzo, Eric Hosmer or Ike Davis jump to the next level?

My rankings are based on a standard 5×5 league. If you have any specific questions about a different league, email me BobbyMcrib@gmail.com. Continue reading

Serena Williams Loses Match, Threatens Judge

Serena Williams lost the semi-final match in the 2009 U.S. Open match because of her temper. She isn’t known for her temper, but she let it get the best of her tonight. What did Serena Williams say? Check it out with a video of the incident.

Serena Williams faulted on the serve and she tried again and she looked to have her foot on the line while serving, thus causing a double fault. It was nearing the end of the match against Kim Clijsters. The line judge instantly called the double-fault and Serena had a few words for her. I saw the replay a few times and it appears that she said “You’re dead, you’re dead!” to her, or something that looks like those words. The line judge went to the head judge and claimed that Williams threatened to kill her. Williams denied the claim, but she received a one point penalty, which caused her the match, since it was match point for Clijsters

Imagine how many time that John McEnroe threatened to kill the judges when he was playing. I never noticed that him ever getting such a penalty, but I could be wrong.

Here is the video of the Serena Williams incident.
