After all the hype, I have to admit that there’s only one Oscars bet that I like. I decided to bet $10 on Christian Bale to win the best actor in a leading role award for his performance in “Vice.” In my opinion, this was a relative...

Wow. Not having any NFL games to gamble on really sucks. Luckily, football is (sort of) back with the Alliance of American Football (AAFL), but I don’t know nearly enough about the players, teams, and rules to gamble on those games. The...

Yeah, I took a break before the Super Bowl just like the Rams and the Patriots did. Hopefully, this column is a little more exciting than Super Bowl LIII, which was the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever. Who could have predicted that two...

It was one of those games where just one moment decided the outcome, that moment being a saved shot by goalkeeper senior Gabby Marcus that fell straight into the path of a Lake Travis attacker, who slotted it home to give the...

They did it again. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have once again made the Super Bowl in a close game. As I predicted, it was high-scoring and Belichick was able to take things away, with the Chiefs’ top tw...

If you took anything away from the NFL’s Divisional Playoffs round, it should be that 1) It was dumb of me to trust the Cowboys and 2) It was even dumber of me to not trust the Patriots in the playoffs. All of the home teams advanced la...

With 2:58 remaining during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s Eagles-Saints game, I felt something as a Saints fan that fans of other teams have felt too. I was deathly afraid of Nick Foles. Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and Saints qua...

Well, I guess they call it WildCard weekend for a reason. Because it was pretty freaking wild. If you were keeping track of my predictions for the WildCard games last week (and I know you weren’t), then you would have found that I w...

Happy 2019! I’ve taken two weeks off from writing this column, partly because I didn’t feel confident about betting on games where players could be resting in the final two weeks of the NFL regular season, and partly because I deserve...

My chances to win my open bets were severely damaged by two games in the NFL this past week, both of which were decided by a single point. First, the Chiefs battled the Chargers on Thursday Night Football. This was a high-profile matc...
