With the fires and smoke surrounding Northern California, football games seem even more trivial than usual. All of us have either been affected first hand or know many who have.
With that in mind I’m going to make a gesture to help any ACES Golf readers who are interested in taking me up on a free weekend offer. Hopefully watching the games can provide some entertainment and diversion for us all. And we might as well make a profit while we’re at it.
Just call or text me at 510-209-0730 or message me at http://www.facebook.com/kentelolasports and mention the ACES Golf offer to get a full weekend of plays from me free of charge. We are coming off another monster NFL weekend (hitting 6 out of 7 selections), highlighted by the Kansas City Chiefs improving to 5-0 (straight up and against the spread) with a big win and cover at Houston on Sunday Night Football.
We also cashed on the Green Bay-Dallas OVER 52 (also give out free here last week) and hit a slew of teasers on live underdogs including Jacksonville, the Los Angeles Chargers, Buffalo, Tampa Bay and the Packers. Our winning college slate was capped by Washington State going to Eugene and putting the smack down on Oregon.
There are some intriguing match-ups in both college and pro over the next few days and we’re anticipating another highly profitable weekend.
In the NFL there are five games with point spreads right at or near double digits. New England is laying 9.5 points on the road to the Jets, Atlanta (-11.5) is a huge home favorite over Miami, with the same being said for Washington (-10) over the 49ers, Houston (-9.5) over the Browns and Denver (-12) over the Giants.
While those games may seem “obvious” on paper, they are in reality quite dangerous if you don’t have a sensible game plan. Contact me and I’ll not only give you the winners, but also help you with proper money management to maximize your bankroll going forward.
We’ll also be closely monitoring the American League Championship Series (Yankees vs. Astros) and NLCS (Dodgers vs. TBA) for potential betting angles to pounce on.
I’m going to keep this week’s column shorter (and more somber) than usual, as we all have plenty of important things to take care of in the coming days. So let’s get right to this week’s free picks.
In college we’re going to stick with the anti-Oregon theme. Stanford is at home Saturday night laying 10.5 points to the visiting Ducks who are still without their starting quarterback. The Cardinal got a huge Pac-12 road win at Utah last week and with Bryce Love being one of the most exciting players in the nation, seems to be hitting its stride. Look for Stanford to give the Bay Area a respite and some joy with a big double-digit victory over the Ducks.
We’ll go with another over/under for our NFL free play. Matthew Stafford and Drew Brees slinging it around in a dome sounds like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The Saints and Lions both have potentially explosive offenses and I think the winner will need to score at least 30 points. With the total set at 50, reaching the OVER shouldn’t be a problem.
Remember, call or message me to get this week’s entire slate on the house for ACES Golf readers. Good luck to everybody out there, not just with this week’s bets, but also with the recovery of our neighborhoods, homes, businesses and wildlife.
