Okay I am going Lebron under 28.5 and going with a bigger stake in Butler going over 20.5.

LBJ is typically a slow starter and the Lakers have lost 2 Game Ones.  I think this is finally Jimmy's stage and I can see him trying to prove something.

Doesn’t he have some of his lowest average points scored one going up again Butler?

From Brad Powers:

Very unique handicap here as Navy has played two
games while this is the first for Air Force. There was a big time line move on this
game on Monday as Air Force went from a small favorite to a TD home underdog.
It stems from an article in the Gazette that reports as many as 40 players are missing
from Air Force’s roster due to what the Academy calls “turnbacks” as the players are
not at the Academy this fall. Essentially, they are trading this season’s eligibility for
next year when it was originally announced the Mountain West wouldn’t play this
fall. The Falcons were already No. 128 in returning production prior to QB Donald
Hammond leaving in July (not in good standing). Now according to the Gazette
report several key starters are out on the defensive side. Meanwhile, after showing
no life in the first 6 quarters of 2020, Navy pulled the shocker and beat Tulane two
weeks ago 27-24 rallying from a 24-0 deficit. That should have given them extra
motivation into their bye week last week. Even though our power ratings don’t call
for it, you have to take Navy here. Air Force could resemble a JV team. Also note
that Navy is really good as a favorite as of late. Navy -7

It's a lotta points, but I think BYU is on a mission (no pun intended) this year and will cover the big figure tonight.

So this game tonight is such a dog--I mean I am a lifelong Bronco fan and the only reason I am going to watch is to drink and bet. This is going to be ugly. I am embarrassed to be betting the under when good high school teams could put up enough points to cover this, but lets look at the numbers Denver final point total 14, 21, 10 --the Jets 17, 13, 7,  Any combo of these scores don't equal an over in this game. Both teams are beat up and will probably dink and dunk it down the field. If it goes over, it won't be by much in my opinion.

I like Patrick as a sneak over 29 yards (DK has him at 31.5), but the one I like more is him over 2.5 receptions. Just a hunch or it could be the burrito I had for lunch....

Playoff baseball blows

red were embarrassing on every level.  Game after that is a 10 minute talk in the outfield for my kids telling them how ####ty their base running was, and how they need to put the ball in play, on how need to do the little things right.  LOCK IT IN

Nope, just a tout.  But I had not seen the stuff about AF missing so many players and thought it was worth sharing.

Please stop tailing most things in here. At least don't tail me.  I'm horrible.  That's LITERALLY the first 1st TD bet I've hit in months (Ok I hit Burrow the other night but didn't post it which made me play Darnold tonight and post it...) but fo' reals, stop.  You will lose your money.

It's a lot of points and I hate laying that many, but....I think BYU is on to something this season.  LA Tech isn't a bad team, but that's a long way for them to travel and play a team full of grumpy, married men who just want to hit people younger than they are.
