Arena Football...Sides (2-0) Totals (0-1)
-----------------------------------------------------


Indiana +3 = Indiana and new head coach Steve Deberg host Buffalo Doh! I mean Columbus in week 1. Last year Buffalo beat them by 1 at home. Both teams start this Season with new QB's under center. Both are young and inexperienced as a starter but i give the edge to Kevin Daft of Indiana. The former San Jose Backup Won the job and he's full of talent. Indiana with solid QB play could challenge Chicago for the Central Division this year because they have alot of returning pieces to make a run.



GOOD LUCK ;) :D

YOU ARE A NUT!! A GOOD NUT!!

Local press and interviews with new coach Steve DeBerg of the Firebirds say they will lay no eggs for the fans....they also have as their 3rd QB....NONE OTHER THAN A REFORMED AND VERY YOUNG Mr. McPherson from FSU that many remember from the COLLEGE SCANDELS.......DeBerg says the kids talent is "scary" coming from a pro QB!

TAKE THE F-BIRDS YOU ARE ONIT!! GOOD CALL WAYNE!! Gv

GEEEZZZZZ....I'm as bad as you now!!

Adrian McPherson is a hell of a talent but he's listed as out for this game with back spasms.

Hopefully they don't need anyone except for Daft in this Game! :red: :red:

Looks too good to be true with them getting points at home. Just like i said last year. There are not many traps in Arena ball just alot of bad lines by Vegas. If you follow it closely you will do well.

Look at the first 2 games. A 7.5 Dog at home Wins outright today and a team laying 6 Wins by 15 last night. Vegas hates this sport cause they have yet to figure it out! Last year we caught one bad line after another.

GL :D

Michigan blows a 16 point 2nd hald lead at home. The missed the front end on 2 trips to the free throw line in the last 20 seconds. That's 4 easy points they should have scored. It's just my luck this year i guess. Back at now to try and make up for that one.

Cannot believe the bad beat in the Arena game. Indy led by 13 heading to the 4th Q, RAN for 64 yards, and had 10 more minutes in time of possession. The problem - TWO Ints for touchdowns for Columbus in the final few minutes. Unbelievable! Picks for TDs in this league are rare, but two in the same quarter to cost you the cover hurts... Thankfully we have a full slate of games tomorrow!

Tough luck on your AFL pick, it looked good going into the 4th Quarter but those 2 interceptions returns for TD's by Columbus hurts. Can't wait for your picks tomorrow.

I agree guys. I was watching the scoreboard and couldn't believe the 2 picks for touchdowns. I bet the game at +3 and i thought i had some major value cause about an hour before the game i looked and the line had moved to Indiana -1.5 at a couple of my books. There must of been a ton of money dropped on this one late. Vegas usually gets killed in Arena games with line moves like that but they got this one.

We'll get em' tomm. ;)

man, i always write down your picks with a few others and see you had michigan, ole miss, notre dame, old dominion, and that arena football game...........

i had an entire week of crap like that 2 weeks back and no words can cure it............all i can say to you is what all of you here said to me.............keep posting, it will urn around, and for someone like you, pretty quickly............although there are not many feelings worse than when you have all that bs happen in 1 day

i guess the only good part was murray state scored to cover with 1 second left and florida was pretty lucky (believe me, i had it)

oh well, look forward to your arena picks, i know nothing about it

I hear that shorty!

The only thing that has not been good lately is College Hoops. NBA has been great. NHL is coming around well and Arena is holding it's own early. It will take a disaster in all sports before i get mentally down.

Gambling is like surfing. You ride the wave and your feeling good but when you crash it happens in a heartbeat and you feel like shit.

I already can't wait for tomm. :D :red: :D

you really did not have that bad of a day and SHOULD have had a great one..........

what is funny is, and i am 100% sure you can relate to this, is when i was younger, those days would have forced me to either ::1)double or nothing tonight or tomorrow, or 2)quit for a few weeks, then making it so i was not ready to come back b/c i was not following it like i should

i never learned to cap the pro sports at a rate better than 50% so i quit...........of course, i still bet on it a lot, but i just foolow all of you.........

good night

shorty i'll never get rich doing this but i have one hell of a good time playing and those hot streaks help pay the bills quicker. ;)

When i was younger i used to double up and dig deeper holes on a regular basis. Those were also the days when i thought i knew everything and just opened up a newspaper and picked my teams. The "Internet" has help gamblers TREMENDOUSLY.

I've also come to realize that if you don't want your ass kicked everyday that you better put a little research into your picks.

I'm in a Bad College slump but i'm not stupid either. After a couple days of the slump i catch on and really tone down on just how much a unit is in that sport. I bet alot of games cause i like the action, so i've had times (when slumping bad) that a College unit can be as little as $5 or $10. Doesn't sound like much but when your betting 10-15 games at 3-10 units each it adds up. Of course when things are going well a unit can be bumped up to be worth more.

I guess what i'm trying to say is that a 3 unit nba play is bigger than a 5 unit college play for me right now. I keep my posting systems the same but i try to balance my money differently according to which sports i'm doing well in. Those Arena plays are listed as 1 Unit but each one is financially equal to about a 3 unit play in hoops.

I probably confused the hell out of you. Sorry! :D

GL Brother!

I do the same thing. Put it this way my units in College Football and College Hoops are a lot higher then the NFL and NBA. I'm not stupid. Down around 43 units in NBA. There is noway I'm going to unload in that Sport. I save most of my outputs for College Hoops right now. And for the System plays when I Feel real good about them like the Milwaukee game tonight. ;)

Some Basically what I'm saying is I do the same exact thing ;) :D

wayne/homer..............wayne, i do the exact same thing you do..........i will have entire weeks without looking at the nhl and nba i will look at most nights , but not to carefully b/c it is too hard

what i have figured out is this--->like you said wayne, the internet has made it possible for one to actually win more often then one loses if they put in a lot of research AND know a hell of a lot about the sport...........

for me, i only put the time into college fooltball and college basketball b/c through the years, i have found it to be profitable........like you, i do not do it to pay the bills and although i get very nervous on a 10* play, it is not like the lights are going out if i lose.............but one of the best lessons i learned while losing a gazillion dollars was one of my older betting friends at the time (who of course, i dismissed as an idiot) told me, "b, try just betting one game on a saturday for $20, and you will be surprised how much you actually want that play to win"..........he was right..................

i will also admit that if it was not for the internet, i would not be nearly as successful as i have been lately in college sports......with that said, i need a faster connection!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good luck wayne/homer
