    Picking up where we left off last season. A lot of sites when down since then, both VIP and BetJamaica are no more. Betjamaica sent users to Heritage which didn't have the best deposit options IMO. VIP didn't officially offer users other sites, but I did receive an email about BetOnline from someone who use to be affiliated with VIP. They've got some good perks and I'm gonna give them a shot this season.

    Anyone making some SB, Conference, or Division picks?

    I put 20 on Dolphins at 50 to 1 to win Super Bowl. I think Chargers win the Super Bowl this year. Want to put money on them when I get back to school.

    Baseball I took the Yankees obviously at 7 to 1 but since then they dropped to 3 1/2 to 1.

    Tomorrow for baseball I like

    Yankees +140
    Braves -115
    Padres +135

    I put a small bet on the Phillies tonight at -125.

    Bodog has completely shut me out. Where can I go? Washington state is mega-strict against online gambling.

    Getting closer to the season opener. The NE/Mia line has gone from 4 to 7 pts since first coming out.

    Where's Fin-O and Section at?

    bowmans.c o m, will redirect you to bet365 though. Greatest online bookie by far. Based in UK, so you will have to wire the money through a western union or something, unless you have a Mastercard. Visa and Amex blocked here in Canada too.

    You won't be disappointed with bowmans/bet365, trust me.

    I've always used sportsbook.com and haven't been disappointed yet.
    Just laid down 4 bets

    Miami - AFC champs $20 20-1
    Miami - AFC East $20 6-1
    Miami - win Monday night +7
    Prog Parlay
    - Miami +7
    - Dallas +4.5
    - Wash +3
    - Minny +9

    I always take the underdogs in week 1. Minny and Wash will both be better than people think. McNabb is a better fit in Minny and an upgrade over Favre and Hightower is an upgrade at RB for Washington. Dallas, I'm hoping can keep it close vs the Jets.

    Yeah man, I always look for underdog value the first few weeks. Haven't checked the lines yet though.

    BTW, where do you guys do your research? Personally, I like covers.com. Great site with a lot of insight.

    Obviously, I am not going to go ML since I think they will lose a thriller.

    I love the spread. This team will play these Patriots TIGHT. Brady will get hit a ton and that will be enough to keep the game close.

    Ah, lose by a FG. Misread that.

    Like I said, I'll consider both if I do well on Sunday.

    0-2 on the first day of NCAAF. Both teams had plenty of opportunity to cover and just kicked themselves.

    Going with SMU +16 today.

    0-3. Another reminder that I either need to follow NCAAF better or just stop betting on it.

    Something to chew on for tonight.

    Before the suspensions, the Canes were a 5 point favorite. Now they are a 4 point underdog.

    The one constant BEFORE and after the suspensions was that Miami was going to run all over Maryland. They just don't matchup in the running game. The suspensions don't effect that at all.

    So is the WRONG team favored tonight?

    I ****ing drilled that game last night.

    I bet the Packers to win by 7-10 points for +500

    then took them -4.5

    and I SENT IT IN. $$$$$$$$$$

    Never have I had THAT much money hanging in the balance on one play.

    That was exciting.
