Double L Ranch

week 3

I hope you all were able to benefit from the Schlitz last week. We were able to bring in $1,300 (primarily due to the Dawgs) of which I blew all mine Saturday night in Cabo. With the $300 loss in week 1, we've still been able to amass a cool grand in two weeks. I have to say, I didn't spend much time looking at the lines this week for one very simple reason...

I saw the UGA/USC line....

After spewing my margarita across the table at a local watering hole, I gathered myself and made the call to the Bellagio Sportsbook, where I keep shoeboxes of Benjamins at all times for moments like this. This is going to come as an unprecedented move, as I normally suggest hedging bets, but not this week folks. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You need to take the follwing advice:

5 Benjamins
4 Benjamins
3 Benjamins
2 Benjamins
1 Benjamin
Total: 15 Benjamins

Take UGA -7 over South Carolina


This is just what the doctor ordered. I've already opened another bottle of Effin to celebrate my victory. Analysts living in the past and recalling days of low scoring affairs between these two clubs need to take cover. This is going to get ugly and stay ugly. Spurrier will be looking for his 3rd visor of the night by halftime somewhere behind the watercooler. Georgia's conservative D is going to load up and bring it with some blitz packages that have been saved especially for this weekend. Neither team will take this game lightly, but the Gamecock's will not have nearly enough to keep up once the route begins. Looks like that trip to Dubai may come sooner then expected for us.

This is that week when you just want to get that "W" and head on to the next 'un. But it would be nice to lay one of those 'woodshed whippings' on the preacher's boy!

Schlitz B., here's my magic 5 for the week:

-Ball State -7 at Akron
-Florida Atlantic +17 at Michigan State
-Illinois -24.5 vs Louisiana Lafayette
-Arizona State -22 vs UNLV

I didnt see any picks last week Schlitz. WTF?


But i went 8-2 and cleaned it up!

Schlitz said...

I apologize again 9:57. I did get the picks posted. It was a day late, but certainly not a dollar short. Was in Vegas and lost track of what day it was. Look back in the blog and you'll find last weeks picks.

Glad to hear you could clean up without the Schlitz though! Be careful though, like they say, "even a broken clock is right twice a day." I'd avoid that roll of the dice in the future to insure financial success!

Schlitz, you da man. I love watching you roll bets out there with comma's (,) in them. I watched parts of the replay of the ND SDSU game tonite, but my son came into the room and I had to change the channel so as not to corrupt his love for college football. That ND team stinks to high heaven. I used to hate ND, but now I really want to see them lose every game they play this year. I think it is a combo of Claussen and Weiss. Take whomever ND plays and the points. They Stink.

Well, Schlitz, I'm at a crossroads. I have a real problem sticking with the plan on this one. NOT because I have any fear that I'll lose, oh no, in fact I feel the game will be much closer than 7. I cannot bet on the Gamecocks. I live in this State, I deal with the fans non-stop. I hate the Gamecocks and I will not bet on them in any positive fashion whatsoever. By my calculations I'm down 1 benjamin as you went 4-2 last week following up the atrocious first week. See ya next week Schlitz.

One thing to remember Schlitz, these bets are not paying off 1-1. Your halftime line last week, although genius, only paid off .88 to the dollar. So you are not up as much as you you say unless the sports book you are betting on is simply giving money away.

Phatwallet,

A reminder that Schlitz's appearance on Catfish & Cornbread is for entertainment purposes only. The properietors of this blog do not endorse illegal gambling.

Oh and Schlitz, you are lucky you didnt respond to my comment on your post week 1.

Duly noted Phatwallet and I'll gladly toss in the coins for the houzez satisfaction. I thought about accounting for the juicy stuff, but that was too much math involved for me and my general purpose here.

Straw man, I knew better then that bet you offered! I think I even remarked I'd gladly take a hit on that one to see Bama beat Clemson. Unfortunately, 1 silo is not what I had in mind! Good pick though in that one! Just don't forget the broken clock rule...

JJ said...

Good push, Schlitz. No harm done. Looked like a sure bet to me as well.

JJ said...

A 2-2-1 week for JJ. Ball State and UConn were easy covers, and FAU couldn't manage to get even a FG to avoid the push. Somebody shut the Top 25 doors on Arizona State and Illinois on their way out.
