Gamblin’ With Gary: 1-10-14
Hello, ol’ gamblin’ friends. You may have noticed I took a couple weeks off after returning to form with a 3-1 weekend right before the holidays, but don’t think I haven’t been paying attention to what’s been going on. And now I’m back, with my exceptional 21-9-1 record, ready to feed you a couple hot NFL divisional round picks. These bets are 100 PERCENT GUARANTEED TO MAKE US ALL RICH, and I am willing to share them with you to prove it. I’m putting my money where my mouth is. Feel free to join me.
CAN’T LOSE BET #1
New Orleans at Seattle – OVER 45.5
I have mentioned before that the Saints are one of the biggest under teams in the NFL. Couple this with the fact that they are traveling to Seattle, where they scored just 7 points and got crushed six weeks ago, and you would think I should jump all over the under. But that’s amateur stuff. I love betting against trends, and the Seahawks have played in five straight under games on top of everything else. It may also be a little chilly and rainy in Seattle, too. The public is going to be betting hard on this under (watch for the total to drop more before kickoff), so you, my friend, must hammer the over.
CAN’T LOSE BET #2
San Diego at Denver – OVER 54.5
You may remember a certain game in last year’s divisional round playoffs played in the same city where the Broncos were supposed to win – should have won – but blew it. Well, that won’t happen again, but I do expect the same amount of points to go up (last year’s final score was Ravens 38, Broncos 35). A lot of NFL “experts” are going bonkers about the Chargers defense giving Peyton Manning problems simply because they held his offense to 20 points in one of those shitty Thursday night games a few weeks back. They must have forgotten that he’s Peyton Manning and has had an extra week to prepare for this game. Denver is going to score a bunch, but their defense is going to give up a lot of points, too. This should be a great afternoon shootout. Take out a loan if you have to, but bet big on this over.
Bonus note: Last year’s divisional round games saw the over go 4-0. As you can see, I have picked two overs here. However, I don’t have the same amount of confidence in the over in the other two games. This is simply me passing along some information. Take it for what it’s worth (millions of dollars).
