Chris' Gambling Column Week 16

C

Only two weeks remain in the regular season and I have one piece of advice to give: don’t take it for granted. If you’re like me, you love the NFL and look forward to Sundays just so you can crash on your couch and watch the games. Even though there will still be playoffs, it [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 15

C

Jooooohhhhnnnyyyy…..Jooooohhhhnnnyyyy…… The chants have gone on long enough. It’s finally time. Johnny Manziel will make his first NFL start this Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. I’m not leading my column with this because I’m a Manziel super fan. Instead, I want to highlight once again why the NFL is a world of overreactions. Week to [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 14

C

I was in Atlantic City this past weekend, and it reminded me of something disappointing: despite the progress that has been made, sports gambling is still not legal in New Jersey. It doesn’t make sense to me, especially given the appeal that the NFL and Roger Goodell made against it, saying it would hurt the [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 13

C

I was talking to a friend of mine this week about my column and he had a word of advice for me: “Don’t start your column out with, ‘Well….that was rough.'” Despite my attempt to be honest (and luckily, I haven’t had to open up my column with that line in a few weeks), he [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 11

C

What a week for the column! I was able to get both of my best bets, all of my teasers, and two of my moneyline bets. It was certainly the most impressive week I’ve had this season, especially since I nailed a three-team teaser (wish I bet on it) and picked the Jets and Niners [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 10

C

So last week was a little weird. Mark Sanchez, not Nick Foles, led the Eagles to a big road win over the Texans. The San Diego Chargers, who many deemed a Super Bowl contender just a few weeks ago, got blown out by Miami. In a game that was almost certainly going to at least [...]

Chris' Gambling Column Week 9

C

Well that was…not good. If it wasn’t worse enough that my Five Star Bets were both terribly wrong and I missed on two of my three teasers, I endorsed Andrew Luck and the Colts as much as I possibly could. And you all know what happened. Indianapolis got absolutely stomped on by the Steelers. It [...]
