Missed the Redblacks bet tonight because I ended up drinking and watching good music instead (damn living life), but got in some DFS and another CFL teaser (4-0 so far on those) for this week:
And the TEASER:
Saskatchewan +11 and Winnipeg vs British Columbia Over 56.5
Paul Craig +145
Cynthia Calvillo vs Joanne Calderwood Over Rounds 2.5 -140
First off, I was a guest on buffaloholdem’s podcast, “Bet Like No One’s Watching”. We talk DFS, CFL, Bez Sizing, and more!
CFL Week 4 Picks:
Hamilton has been the worst team so far this CFL season, but they finally come home after a disastrous 2 game road trip to face the BC Lions, who are on Game 3 of a 3 game road trip. The Lions are a good team, but not great, especially on offense where they tend to sputter at times (mostly thanks to QB Jennings’ indecision with the ball) and keep teams in games (like Montreal last week). I expect them to keep this one close as they really need a W or things could really fly off the rails for the team I picked to win the East this year.
TEASER: Montreal/Calgary Over 48.5 and Ottawa +5
Gerald Meerschaert wins by inside decision +155
All this guy does is choke people the fuck out.
Yoel Romero -110
I’ve always watched loving this guy fight, and he is literally a mutant athlete. Whittaker is a special young fighter in his own right, but I think Yoel gets it done and Robert finds success eventually later in his young career.
Aleksei Oliynyk +195
One of my favorite past times: betting against an Edmond Tarverdyan fighter (Travis Browne). Browne is taller than his opponent, but he has the worse coach in MMA and is marrying Ronda Rousey in a few weeks. I expect fail again.
Hamilton at Saskatchewan Over 51 -110
A buffaloholdem special. BTW John Campbell over at oddshark is currently 10-0 ATS this year so far in CFL. If you bet CFL, he’s a must follow as well.
Montreal +3 (-105)
Montreal +3 and Calgary @ Winnipeg Under 59
DFS lineup this week:
Teaser @ -125:
Calgary -7 and EDM/MTL UNDER 51
BC Lions +3 (-105)
And my CFL DFS lineup:
Lorenz Larkin vs Douglas Lima – Will the fight go the distance YES @ -120
Chinzo Machida +210
Michael Chandler-800, Matt Mitrione -135, Chinzo Machida +210
UFC OKC (Sunday Night):
Tim Boetsch +175
Johnny Hendricks missed weight AGAIN! And he moved up from 170 to 185 for this very reason. #fail
CFL (2-0 so far!):
BC v EDM Over 59 (-110)
First, here is my DFS lineup for the week:
Second, get ready for the CFL season with a preview with me and CFL guru buffaloholdem:
And finally, here are some plays for tonight:
Edmonton vs BC Over 59 (-110)
Hamilton -3.5 (-110)
TEASER: MTL -7 and Under 51 (-130)
First, we got an exciting new pod out with buffaloholdem on his thoughts for the upcoming 2017 CFL Season! We’ve featured buffaloholdem’s bets here on the blog before, and my CFL success methodology has definitely been influenced by him…..so I wanted to ask him on how he attacks a sport not many keep up on (including the books) as much as the more popular offerings. The sound is a little off and I cleaned up what I could so you might have to turn things up a bit……but things could be worse: I could be Vince Young and somehow find a way to blow $26 million in 3 years. We talk to Buffaloholdem about his love of the game, why CFL is still such a great sport to find betting value on, and discuss each conferences’ teams, CFL DFS strategy, and give our predictions for the 2017 East, West, and the Grey Cup (Coupe de Grey) Winners.
Kovalev vs Ward 2
I am really surprised Kovalev is a dog, here. He won the first fight IMO as he knocked down Ward once ……but the judges gave Ward’s technical late round boxing the rest of the rounds and a 114-113 decision (if that sounds confusing to you, it is but Max Kellerman does a great job explaining how Ward could win a fight he got knocked down in here). Kovalev hasn’t been talking to press at all this week, hasn’t even listed his purse for the fight, and is seems primed to avenge his only loss of his career. These two great boxers were meant to fight a trilogy, and a Kovalev win assures that.
