    I was tired of cluttering up rabbit's thread.  No, I haven't gotten stupid rich with my betting.  I do check a lot of things and will list my "whys".

    Fun times...

    Today's bets:

    • You have placed your bet of $25,000,000 on Over 54.5. (the only part a feel truly confident on, lol)
    • You have placed your bet of $25,000,000 on Buccaneers. (the multiplier!)
    • You have placed your bet of $25,000,000 on Buccaneers plus 4.5. (hedging in case the non HC bet goes poorly)

    The Whys:

    • The GOAT is looking awful tired this season.  The only reasons I didn't want to bet on Panthers/Pats were: 1. I didn't want to jynx it, and 2. Cam has been rusty as heck after his surgery.  Kinda wish I had.
    • Pat defense is Swiss cheese this year.  If a somewhat struggling QB can light him up, imagine what a more prolific passer is going to be able to do?
    • Cam was 2-3 (TD-INT) before playing the Pat and lit them up for 3 TD w/1INT
    • Jameis is coming into the game 6-3.  Seems like he should be good for 4 TDs. 
    • Brady is no slouch.  I'm figuring he should should also be good for 3-4 TDs and 2-3 FGs from 'Ski.
    • Only worry is the Pats go to their short pass/grind game and keep the score low. :|

    And then...

    • You have placed your bet of $25,000,000 on NC State plus 2.5.

    Whys for this one are pretty much "cause I felt like it", lol:

    • Dad was always a huge NC State fan.
    • All the ACC teams (heck I think most decent college teams) have huge home fan bases and are way tough at home.
    • It's a nice multi xD

    Fun times!

    I was gonna just say I guess the old goat still has some gas left... but that was all Ski and the defense :/

    <3 Ski even if he takes my handicap bet from me!

    I was ok with the HC bet... and then Mr. Ice-Man taunted with the kick that loooooked like it was going wide, but nooooo...

    Man, he's solid.

    Unlike mister cost the damned game Folk. -_-

    Someone may be lookin for a job soon :P

    I'm not sure I'd call him solid in the past 2 seasons, but damn Folk was certainly the MVP for us last night - I dont hold the 56yd miss against him though - after 2 roughing the passers...

    Folk had the same problem last week, finally pulled through though on his last kick to win the game. Bucs apparently have a curse at kicker haha.

    It's easy to say things like "that dang kicker!" (or "mister cost the damned game" lol)... but there's a lot of pressure on these guys.  I read snip-its from this interview and liked it so much I thought I'd share:

    Stephen Gostkowski, Kicker

    (On the 58-yard field goal)
    "You just try to be ready to go when you get a chance like that. It's one of those kicks where it's like you have nothing to lose. You're not expected to make it, so you kind of have a different attitude going out there. It was set up nice, the wind was behind my back and it was a nice day, but it kind of feels like a foul ball though because we wound up losing. It took the wind out of my sails."

    (On the kickoffs)
    "We have a really good kickoff coverage team so we wanted to make them [Carolina] try to gain yards. Our guys work too hard for me to just blast the ball out of the end zone. Every kick is a different situation. The coach on the sideline tells you kind of what to do. Sometimes, you try to kick them and you get a touchback and sometimes you try to kick a touchback and you don't. But we work real hard on our coverage team, so it's nice to get those guys an opportunity to go down there and make some plays try to get them inside the 25 and not give them those extra five yards."

    (On if you were aware it was a 58-yard field goal attempt before the kick)
    "It's hard to tell, especially when you're on the paint, but you can tell afterward. I try not to think about that stuff going out there, especially on a day when the ball is flying. I'm not too worried about having enough leg to get there. I'm just trying to hit it straight enough to have a chance. I try not to think about anything when I'm out there, but that's easier said than done."

    Bet on my kitties again tonight.

    It was a close game.  Carolina had their chances and just couldn't seal the deal.

    IMO... Cam hurt himself trying to be superman...

    Instead of playing it safe and just tossing a short one to McCaferty... oh, wait... that's what happened... sigh...
