Happy Thanksgiving!

terrel-owens-turkey-legHappy Thanksgiving Everyone!

We hope we made your Thanksgiving just a little bit better with some big Turkey Day wins.

We gave out two THANKSGIVING SPECIALS that both hit. The first special was a 7-point teaser of Packers -3.5 and Cowboys -6.5, which hit with ease. We also won both of those games individually with teasers we gave out that had the spread coupled with the over/under.  The Packers -3.5 hit with the Over 40.5 and Under 54.5, which I flip-flopped on due to the uncertainty of Calvin Johnson’s status — I recommended the over 40.5 if Johnson was active, but under 54.5 if he was inactive.  In the end, it didn’t matter since the total was right in the middle at 46.  I also recommended Cowboys -6.5 (or Raiders +20.5) with the under 47.5.  That was another easy hit no matter which side you decided to play it from.

If you instead played the spreads straight up, there were no worries there as both the Packers and Cowboys got the easy cover, although I was worried after GB fumbled the first kickoff of the game that led to a quick 7 points by the Lions.

I actually played those games with a 4-way teaser (2-to-1 odds) with GB -3.5, DAL -6.5, and unders on both games, so I was pretty pumped about that!

Hopefully, you took notice of last night’s update on the Broncos vs. Giants game.  I was onboard with the Giants, but put a “buyer beware” notice to avoid the Giants game due a feeling that the Broncos are “due for a win” along with the road trip, on a short week, with a list of injuries that I didn’t feel very good about.

Secondly, if you played Brandon’s THANKSGIVING SPECIAL of Texas A&M +21 over Texas, you got another cover.  What a heck of a football game.  The final score in that one was Texas 49, Texas A&M 39.  A&M hung in there the entire game and pulled the game within 3 points until Texas returned a kickoff with 5 minutes left in the game.  With the 21 points in that one, you just couldn’t go wrong.

Brandon loves to play those home underdogs in rivalry games and it worked like a charm in the Texas A&M game.  Brandon looks to continue that trend tomorrow afternoon since he is a big fan of Auburn +10 over Alabama, which I saw the line move to +10.5 before pulling back down to the original +10. I have to agree with him that when Alabama faces solid defenses, their offense just doesn’t live up to the hype.  I can’t wait to see what happens in that game.

We ended up big on Thursday and look to continue the hot streak into the weekend. There’s a ton more football tomorrow. The only game that I’m eying up is Rutgers -3 over Louisville, but I want to get some more opinions before taking that one. The Rutgers -3 spread looks too sweet to pass up.  It could be low due to Rutgers’ stud WR Tim Brown being listed as questionable and their kicker is also sidelined. I also like UCONN -13.5 over Syracuse Saturday at noon.

Good luck everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!
