First off, what a comeback by your humble scribe…
Perfect after Tim Tebow‘s comeback. Five for five so far in pros. What a year. Maybe more important with the Chiefs crushing loss to the Jets, your man is one game short of the Magic Number, 9 losses by KC to end the bet I made in September.
If you recall I flew to Las Vegas and put my money where my mouth is. I bet the Chiefs to have under 7 1/2 wins for the season. With 16 games, that means they have to lose at least 9. They are at 8 with three to go and Green Bay next week.
Bye, Bye Stink Farm.
Also Detroit won more than 6 and Cowboys are under 10, so that is up in the air. Wow, what a great, great season. Hope some of you followed in your pools or on-line bets etc…
Some people don’t understand what a tease bet is. Like whomever George is.
So here it is again.
First off all major sports books in Las Vegas take them. The bettor can add or subtract 6 points to the spread.For example if the Chiefs are a 10 1/2 point underdog to the Jets. You can take 6 points off the spread for the Jets, so now the Chiefs only get 4 1/2 points instead of 10 1/2.
You must pick at least two games to do this with, not just one.
However, you can take the 6 off the over/under as well. So if the total points for a game is say 44, you can drop it to 38 and take the under and the favorite both with 6 off.
Get it? Good.
There are a few people who don’t understand that, but there it’s there. A very common bet.
Back to the Chiefs…
So we have a great defense? Really? I didn’t see one Sunday, did you? Four touchdowns in the first half to New York. One big run right over Derrick Johnson to start the game. Wow, a killer. Set the tone.
The Chiefs will now finish with maybe one more win over Oakland and be 6-10 and in last place. With no quarterback we have no upside. And no future for years to come.
Who will be the Chiefs coach next year? Who will be at quarterback? Who knows?
Doesn’t look good, huh? I will do live picks next year with the Mix. Our sports talk radio guys can’t take it. None of them can do what I do and they don’t want me on their shows showing them up.
