Well dudes, interesting update!  My wife and daughter surprised me today, told me they were a comin home 10 days early and would be here within the hour.  The tumor is now so small that he wants to ho

Home.  Some 40 hours later and the kid is basically back to normal.  Amazing.  She'll move up to Orlando for a few months for the radiation treatment with the Mrssus but for her the scary part is over

Well dudes, we're not sure what is next....but tonight Izzy takes her last chemotherapy treatment.  We'll go up in a few weeks to take a peek in her skull to see 'sup...but for tonight - we celebrate.

For tomorrow I went with:

Chargers ML + o52.5 @ +365

Ekeler o55.5 rushing @ -110

Ekeler o39.5 receiving @ -120

Jacobs o62.5 @ -120

Agholor first TD +1000

I will also put some money on Ekeler/Allen and Ekeler/Jacobs prop parlays when they go up tomorrow. 

Check out the "Scoreboard Specials."  They have a couple of favorite bets from local media that are odds boosted...like a 6 point teaser +100 instead of -120.  Kinda cool.

Gross, but not TOO gross NFL dogs this week: Broncos, Falcons, Lions, Skins.

I think the Broncos have a decent chance of winning outright and I've heard others say the same for Atlanta. Atlanta's defense is playing much better now.

I did see those but don't like the teams they included in those lol

I wish I could figure out the major bookmaker that is backing the Oregon Scoreboard. I heard the tech people are located in Vegas.

I think it might be William Hill but haven't been able to confirm.

I always thought it was the people behind Bovada because the odds are closest to them.  But there are some variances like shading toward local teams and not allowing same game teasers.

Yes, fading the west coast teams can be pretty juicy

I'm not crazy about the Philly side either but getting over the 10 and even money odds hooked me.

I just think Arizona crushes them. Fading me has been very profitable the last few weeks though...

Could someone please give me an estimate for a money line price for a 2-bet parlay on fantasy football games?

The parlay is on both favorites--one is a 10-point favorite and the other is a 14-point favorite.  Expected points is ~140.

TIA

My spreads are for fantasy football not NFL.  I think that would bring the prices way down.

Using college basketball conversion (closer to that 140 point total)

10 pt fave is -444

14 is -1155.

Parlay pays $33.13 on $100.

140 on each game?

if this is ESPN it gives a % chance to win ( not sure that is reliable) and you could convert that to a ML

No same game parlays either.  That's really dumb.  Not sure why that's the case.

Also,  not being able to bet college is just head spinningly stupid.  Thanks, Politicians!

Well too bad my prop parlays didn't hit. Finished barely profitable after my Hunter first TD bet but also Chargers -6.5 in game right after Carr got hurt 😭

Well one of us will be happy. I went pretty heavy on Buffalo and over props. 

This was one of those bets that you place with your heart and not doing research. Had I know, McManus was out,  I may have reconsidered any bet on Denver.

So one of those days where you tell yourself, "Hey, you lost some money this week--just go conservative today. Play some chalk--get some of the money back."

And then before you know it, your bet slip looks like something a drunken sailor would submit.

I like Wilson over 18.5 yards rushing.+100

Carson 1st TD +800 

Minn -2.5  -115

SF-4   -190

I also took one of the prop bets with Henry over 2 TDs +230

Fla/OK over 70
