We’re in a bit of a mid season slump here at PP. Last week Gargs inexplicably backed the Texans, a bet which got what it deserved when they were comprehensively trounced by the Rams. Meanwhile, I was doing the winners dance* thinking the Saints were home (+1.5) until Tom Fucking Brady led an absolutely ridiculous 80+ yards in under 2 mins with no timeouts, and threw a TD on the last play. What a douche.
My previous Thursday Night heroics are a distant memory and you’re only as good as your last win, so I will be looking to get back on track this week. I was amazed to see Seattle giving away less than a TD to Arizona. I know they’ve been better than I thought they would be, but damn it, I will not stand for any suggestion that they will get within 1 TD of the Seahawks, home or not, particularly with Richard Sherman picking off Carson Palmer at will. However, acknowledging that Arizona are…not the worst team in the league…I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they may score a few points.
Unfortunately I’m having trouble accessing centrebet on my phone as I type this**, but I noticed the over/under line was at 40 and the score line at 6.5. So we are going Seattle -6.5 / Over 40. $50 on that at whatever the price is – expect it will be 3.60 or so. Go Hawks!
* is that something everyone does when they have a win – the little “doo doo doo” shuffle that says “winner” to anyone inclined to be looking
** which is wierd, because I would expect the betting rush to come AFTER I’d published my tip…
