October was like a rollercoaster. Mostly because I broke the unwritten rule never to bet on a Sun Belt game. Western Kentucky was leading 10-0 and decided to go for it on fourth down from the one-yard line. QB Brad Doughty threw a pick that was returned 99 yards for a TD. And the things went donhill. Doughty threw another pick, TE Mitchell Henry had two balls ripped from his hands and Louisiana-Lafayette won 37-20.
That was the low point. After that we started a red-hot streak and gained almost 29 units in a span of 11 days. Until Seahawks decided not to show up on offense against St. Louis.
After all we ended in the red but the big streak showed that it takes only one game for a spark. November is known as the "Money Month" as there's a match every day except on November 27th when everybody is stuffing the turkey. So there will be planty of opportunities to make profit. Buckle up and get ready for action!!!
The first month is over. The end was a little disappointing but still we ended with a profit. Let’s take a close look at the tips that ended on the losing side:
September 8th Buffalo +9.5 – New England 2
New England started fast. They were leading 14:0 on deep into Buffalo territory when Stevan Ridley fumbled and Bills returned it 74 yards for TD – a swing of 10 – 14 points. Patriots were 17:7 ahead when with 1:03 left in the half Tom Brady was intercepted. Two plays later Buffalo scored a TD – a swing of at least 7 points. With 4:12 left in the third quarter Brady fumbled at Buffalo 1 – a swing of at least 3 points. At the end Patriots won 23:21 but without those three mistakes they would’ve covered the spread without problems.
September 8th NY Jets – Tampa Bay 2
With 34 seconds to go the Bucs have taken the lead on a 37-yard FG. However with 2 seconds to go LB Lavonte David was penalized for a dumb hit out of bounds on QB Geno Smith. That moved the ball 15 yards forward and the Jets scored a 48-yard FG. Without the penalty the kick would’ve been from 63 yards and Jets kicker Nick Novak have never scored from beyond 55!
September 8th New Orleans – Atlanta over 53.5
At the time nobody knew that Atlanta’s offense will be so inept. I grossly underestimated New Orleans defense which is yet to give more than 17 points.
September 19th Philadelphia – Kansas City first half 1
Eagles were handling the ball like hot potato. The first time they touched it Damaris Johnson fumbled at the own 8-yard line. The second ended with an interception return TD. To top it Michael Vick threw another pick in the first half and also lost a fumble.
September 22nd Carolina – NY Giants 2
This is the most embarrassing tip I’ve ever given! Giants failed to show and were humiliated. They gave up 402 yards while gaining only 150…
September 22nd Minnesota -6.5 – Cleveland 1
It turned out to be that this match drew the most bets in Vegas that day. History shows that in such case those games rarely finish the way the bets were made…
September 18th Pittsburgh – Virginia over 48.5
Pittsburgh turned a pair of Virginia turnovers into a 14:0 lead with 3:09 left in the first quarter but QB Tom Savage suffered a concussion. So Panthers went into a conservative mode and their defense suffocated the Cavaliers. There was no chance for the over to be achieved.
September 19th Detroit – Chicago 2
The bears were leading 10:6 early in the second quarter when QB Jake Cutler decided it’s time to start giving the ball away. He threw two interceptions and the defense showed no interest stopping the run. Reggie Bush gained more than 100 yards in the first half alone, Detroit scored 24 points in less than 8 minutes and the contest was over.
September 20th Atlanta – New England first half 1
With 6:19 left in the first half Atlanta were at New England 7. As they’ve already kicked one short field goal so on fourth down they decided to go for it instead of a chip shot. Falcons didn’t convert and the half ended 10:10…
