    As ElLocoAde is going...well, loco :cool: in football thread, here is the topic which can be quite useful for placing and exchanging tips for various US Sports. There's a few excellent tipsters here, some of them have their own log (Tom Brady and El Horseboxo stands out), but hopefully we will be able to have a decent discussion about NFL, MLB, NCAAF and in few weeks about NHL, NBA and NCAAB as well.

    A treble for interest in the 6pm games

    - Titans -1.5
    - Eagles -3.5
    - Steelers +1.5

    €10 returns €60

    I've also done

    - Cardinals -6.5, Patriots -7.0, Titans -1.5

    Watch the Titans mess both of them up now :o

    Yep :pac:

    Although I thought they were going to reel the Jags in with a few seconds left, they threw an INT.

    Steelers did much worse.

    Im all over New York Jets -6 on PP @ evens.

    They had one of the best defense in the league last year and the day that is in it i don't think they will want to lose at home. Very big day for them as well with them opening up the new stadium.

    ( now i don't know my ass from my head when it comes to American football so if im wrong or as far out as a light house just tell me or ignore me. )


    And tomorrow im on. (with thanks to Tom Brady/Archie)

    New England Patriots -7 @ 10/11
    Denver Broncos -3 @ 4/5

    You're probably spot on, but as they showed on their first drive Cowboys have weapons that can make plays despite the phenomenal defence of the Jets. I think the Boys can at least stay within the spread, if not win the game narrowly. So I took the Cowboys spread :pac:

    Patriots were down to -6.5 over the weekend at one stage. Back to -7 now, I'd expect to see that up to -7.5 before kick off.

    Also, a small tip would be Wes Welker over 67.5 receiving yards. In the 7 games he's played against the Dolphins, he's averaged 7.8 catches and 98 yards a game.

    Also, in more general news the weather forecast for Miami tonight is cloudy with a low enough temperature. As good as an away team can hope for when visiting Miami in early September.

    Went with them two tips again on singles. Also went with this:

    Any Time Touchdown Scorer
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis @ 4/7

    Any Time Touchdown Scorer
    Brandon Lloyd @ 10/11.


    The other bet i was looking at was Tom Brady over 260.5 passing yards any advice on this one? Not really sure about it. cheers :D

    I'd avoid The Brady bet myself, simply because I think the Pats will lead for most of the game and won't have to throw the ball as a result.

    Waiting on Denver -3 and NE -6.5 to complete a treble with Dallas +5.5, might do just a single with NE as well.

    Well which one is -7?! Can presume it's the Patriots! It's 14-14 at the minute so your acca is screwed currently!

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,071 user2011

    Look the Patriots could win by 30 but you're still going to be waiting on another game so don't get too excited yet! They should win by 8+ though cause the Dolphins have been woeful!

    Would be a correct pick - it's still 3rd quarter and he's already on 279 yrds (if I read game tracker properly). I guess it's because game is closer than expected.

    Wouldn't say its in the bag! Looks like they will get points back here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,897 ✭✭✭ Eire-Dearg


    Too much back and forth, the defences are anonymous. There'll be nothing worse than the Pats matching the spread exactly :(

    Ah the Dolphins quickly squashed the hope i had early when they got a touchdown. Then i got thinking anything with England in it will surely mess a punter up :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,897 ✭✭✭ Eire-Dearg


    They got a field goal there so if the Patriots go up and score another TD which they should do, it gives the -7 a bit of cushion.

    Im trying to read that game tracker as well. Is W Welker over 68 recieving yards? cheers?

    True the D's are non existent nearly but Brady is able to take advantage of it better!

    Not yet, but he's getting closer (already on 54). I am on 60,5 though.

    Patriots have it covered now and can't see them not being able to by the end!
