I'm a parlay junkie and I nailed my college parlay on sunday and had Notre Dame made a couple field goals I would have cleaned up last weekend.

I am leaning heavily towards the Dolphins this thursday.

Hay guys I already made two college picks a few days ago on our test thread but here they are again just to give an idea of what to jump on when it's there:

VIRGINIA TECH -11.5 @ NC
RUTGERS -9.5 vs. Illinois

I also had 4 NFL picks locked in, these being;

CINCINNATI +3 @ Kansas City
SEATTLE -4 @ Detroit
CHICAGO -3 @ Green Bay
Denver @ St. Louis UNDER 46.5

Finally I fully endorse the Chargers -3 selection and suggest that you all put the leisure load on it. If for some reason it doesn't win I will bail you all out with next week's picks I promise.

As for the updated lines I will have 5 games for you guys up tonight and I guarantee at least 3 of them will win, if not all 5.

I like that Cincy +3 pick. :yes:
Yeah seriously that pick is free money... When I first saw it a week ago I thought it was Cinci -3 and thinking "wow what a steal"... then I was it was +3 and put the leisure load on it :icon_mrgreen:

Me too and lets hope Marvin upgraded the Cincy defense. The only thing that scares me about tha games is LJ but if Cincy can get an early lead it will negate LJ somewhat
L do you honestly think LJ is going to be as good as last year after KC's o-line went down the crapper? I am expecting a 100-200 yard and 3-4 TD dropoff in production. All talk about LJ being even better than last year is nonsense. I am not worried about that at all, this should be a 10-14 point win by CIN. Give em 3 points and I'm tempted to put my life savings on it :icon_banana:

Looks perty good BDH. I am staying away from the NE game because you never know when the Buffalo D will show up and they can seriously limit a team's offensive production, although they might not have caught on to what NE will be doing this year and that is playing smallball and featuring their Hbacks and TE's. Ben Watson is going to have a huge year. But regardless, you have a realistic shot at pulling this off :thumbup:

BTW I forgot to say that I fully endorse leisure's UCLA -27.5 bet. Ben Olson is the real deal and Rice's DBs match up horribly with UCLA's WRs. Expect a 50+ point performance from UCLA and for their defense to limit rice to under 20 points, probably around the 12-17 range.

If you have any questions just fire away.....A math brain like you have will pick it up in no time :icon_mrgreen:

BTW Trumpie betting the Bolts -3 @ the Raiders is actually stealing money from a punk Turd fan. I mean who else will be putting $$$$ on the Raiders? :icon_rofl: :icon_banana:
"It does not matter how bad the Raiders are on MNF, the Chargers will lose"

Go Bolts !!

I should probably ask the questions then because I am sure if I do not "get it" there are several others in the same boat. :yes:

You do not want to be the only kid in the class with his hand up asking the questions because the other kids will snicker and think you are really that stupid. :icon_mrgreen:

I'm also liked the Dolphins this week. I think NE is a lock to win and I'm leaning towards Sheli upsetting his bro in NY. Weather is the big "if" right now for me.

Welcome to week one of 'leisure Las Vegas'! Thanks to Shamrock this gambling thread which is in it's third year now will be known as "leisure Las Vegas" (Shammie authored the name lLV). For the last two years running we were called "Let's Gamble" on the UT site. Just like the Chargers we left them to go FM! :lol:

Rules are simple here post your pro and college picks with or with analysis. We cater to gamblers but everyone is welcome. The only thing that is not tolerated is bashing somebodies pick while they are losing or have recently lost a game. Most pro gamblers are lucky if they beat 55% against the spread so we will all lose some games sooner or later.

Since this IS a Charger forum lets put a heavy emphasis on our BELOVED Bolts. If you would have bet the Bolts last year against the spread you would have made a TON!!!

Mtl is my partner in this thread and through our test week last week Mtl's picks have been on fire! He was 9-1 last week (verified by FO) and of course my first leisure lock was a winner!. This year I will be betting fewer games with more firepower behind each bet. Mtl bets more games than I do but he is a hell of a handicapper and has my full endorsement. Bet Mtl's picks with complete leisure confidence!

So here goes. For week one I am releasing TWO leisure locks (all my bets were placed at Pinnacle.com) :icon_eek:
NFL leisure lock in bold;
Chargers -3 +111 @ Raiders

College leisure lock in bold;
Rice @ UCLA -27.5 -105

Good luck to all :icon_banana: :icon_banana:
Hey L, the question I have is the number following the "3". Please explain. Thanks

I usually do parlays or bet in pool leagues. I'm not as sophisticated as some of you junkies.

Ditto. I do not know what the -111 or + 111 even means as well.

leisure would be the perfect person to dumb it down for us cretins. :icon_mrgreen:

leisure is not going to be happy seeing his thread moved to off-topic....:icon_rofl:

the vocal minority strikes again...:icon_rofl:
Huh ?

This is an off topic subject isn't it since we have college football in it and betting ?

The hardcores will find this thread no matter where it is located. He still wants a super forum.

I could really careless where it is at to be hanest.

We also will talk about the BOLTS a lot!!!

This is a mistake is my bet......
Oh I know but a thread like this is needed so do not get me wrong. Whether it is on the main boards is not even a concern. To me it makes no difference just so long as i can find the biitch and it is not bounced around like a yo-yo.....
