NFL Thanksgiving Game Recap - Saints and Cowboys

I hope everyone had a great Thanskgiving and enjoyed your time with family and friends. For those who were too busy stuffing their face with turkey, gravy and more here is a recap of the NFL Thanksgiving matchup between the Saints vs Cowboys.

The Saints took on a victory over the Cowboys with a final score of 30-27. This game was full of excitment as the Dallas Cowboys tried for a comeback that would have probably been known as the "Greatest Thanksgiving Comeback" but were stopped short by Malcom Jenkins as he snatched the ball from Roy William at the 11.

NFL Handicapping

This is a post out of the blues but I found this interesting page about nfl handicapping that can be found there: http://knol.google.com/k/lynda-wright/nfl-handicapper/2mwn882wiid3y/4#

I am by no mean a sexist but I found it interesting that this article was written by a young lady. I found her opinion refreshing from the usual guy football handicapping talk so thought you might enjoy it.

NFL Sunday Week 5

Its another exciting day NFL Sunday and the here is a late NFL football pick.

San Francisco 49ers at -3.

The 49ers lose a power point because they are playing at home and it will be a struggle for thme to cover the point spread since the Eagles are a power house. However, the Eagles are pretty banged up from last week since losing Vick.

The 49ers have been struggling with their pass defense but since Vick is out of the picture, it won't be much of an issue in this matchup.

Monday Night Football Free Pick

This NFL season, my NFL handicapping record is on fire!!!

I'm currently 6:2:0 AT. That means, I got a 75% win average. Pretty good for someone who doesnt sell his football picks.

For my Monday Night Football free pick, I'm taking the New Orleans at -6. Preyty confident about this one since because the 49ers defense has been in serious doubt in the past couple of games.

even though the offense of the Saint's is not as good as last year I dont think that Alex Smith will be able to get out of his current rut.

Betting Directory Review

As I was browsing the internet looking for a betting directory to look for a new sportsbook, I came across several websites under that keyword but I was disappointed by most of them as they are not true betting directories.

Obviousy, when you search for a directory, you expect to find something like Dmoz but all of the directories that I saw where sites that either had a gambling directory but was more of a secondary item and most of the site was filled with other content or the directory was more of an article related directory site.

After a bit more searching I did come across a decent directoy, http://www.mybettingdirectory.com which appears to be a newcomer to the betting scene.

I'm just glad that this site popped up as it should allow people that are looking for a directory to actually find one where people can just add their betting related website on by simply registering and use the add site button.

I'll definitively add my site to this directory.

Japanese Video Games

I recently received from my nephew japanese video games which was an odd gift as I don't play video games. I was bit intrigued as I open his gift which was a large box with a black device called a PS3(This happens to be the name of the japanese game console by the way).

Along with the larger package came 2 smaller packages which are the japanese video games. The first one was a game with a bunch of cartoon looking character but the 2nd box caught my attention as it looked like some kind of japanese video game that is a hores racing simulator.

Now, I handicap sports and I do a bit of horse betting which is why the game caught my attention. As a race bettor, I'm not very good and will never make a living off of it but this game was actually quite enjoyable as it actually let you bet on a horse and even had sttistics for the horse and everything else.

The game itself is called, Winning Post 2010 and I marvel at how far the japanese vidoe game industry has advance as this old foggy was impressed when they first came out with pac man.

Football Handicapping Competition

I was browsing thru this football handicapper monitoring site that I am on today to check out the competition when I noticed a new handicapper on the site.

His name is kevin Steel and he runs this site, pigskingenius

Looking at his stats, he seems to be very good. He seems to be able to claim his football handicapping stats for the last 4 years but has only been monitored for 1 year.

If anyone knows who this person is, I would like to get soome feedback about this guy.

In other news, football season is fast approaching and I think that this year will be interesting with the new recruits as we have some outstanding draft picks this year.
