The Sin City BetBot 6000 Presents

Initially built by NASA to set lines for the Las Vegas casinos in the late 50’s (who do you think funded the Apollo missions?

The government?

It was the mob…), The Sin City

Betbot

6000 calculated lines for over 30 years. The

Betbot


was given various upgrades through the years, not always with the best
equipment, but he was very good at setting lines, and living the good
life.

The

Betbot


was de-commissioned in 1990 after San Francisco destroyed Denver in the
Super Bowl. The 45 point spread simply fried a number of the

Betbot’s

wires and he retired. The

Betbot


was discovered by Fantasysharks.com and retooled to give fantasy
advice. He lives now to give his own unique, well cultured take on the

NFL.

The

Betbot

6000 Presents is transcribed by Joe

Petrizzi

and Tom Walls because “typing

BZZT…

is a dame’s job”.

And in a world of people, there’s only you and I

There

ain’t

nothing come between us in the end

How… can I hold you when you

ain’t

even mine?

Only you can see me through

I leave it up to you

Can’t get enough BetBot?  Don’t deny it.  Follow me on Twitter! @betbot6k – I’ll be tweeting my weekly picks on there, plus making snarky comments as often as possible.

Andy Gibb


was a close personal friend of mine. I counseled him during his early
career. He could have joined on with his brothers and been the fourth
Bee Gee. Some of you youngsters may scoff, but the Bee

Gees,

Abba and Led Zeppelin pretty much ruled the 70s during the twang

twang

Rock and Disco years.  Andy and I maintained a great relationship until his untimely death. There was that time when he and

Victoria Principal

were broken

up,


Andy thought I may have had a few sessions of sweet with Victoria. He
was pretty angry at me during that time. As far as Victoria is
concerned, I am guilty as charged; but Andy and I got over it.  Do I
tell you this to simply let you know Victoria Principal and I had a
passionate affair? No, I tell you this because the NFL is full of sad
partings, and tough decisions. I somehow think that Cleveland’s parting
with

Braylon

Edwards

was not so sad, and; in the end, not so tough.

Brett Favre’s

parting with Green Bay hurt, but in the long run, Green Bay will be better off; it just didn’t work out that way Monday Night.

NFC Notes

The Saints and Vikings are the class of the conference right now. I may believe in the Giants when they beat a tough team.

Jay Cutler

appears to have turned the corner. He likely won some fans in the locker room with that Elway-

esque

helicopter run into the end zone.

Josh Johnson

, get ready for a long year.

Tony

Romo

, who

has no problems remembering digits when at a singles bar; couldn’t remember it was fourth down last

Sunday

? Not good, Tony. By the way, Jessica is here in my suite at Cesar’s

she says hi.

The

Niners

finally got

Michael Crabtree

signed. Or should I say,

Eugene Parker

, Crabtree’s

agent ,


finally decided to put his client’s needs above his own wants. Crabtree
should have fired Parker a long time ago. Hopefully this blunder
doesn’t cost Crabtree more than

the first few game

s

of this season.

Internet loudmouth

Jason Whitlock

maybe had it correct when he speculated that

Deion Sander’s


influence on Crabtree was broken… Whoever it was that drove this horrid
decision, Crabtree realized that it may be nice to start earning money
now.

Eli Manning‘s heel injury?  Well,

he was bound to hurt himself

as often as he throws off his back foot while squirming away from contact.

Bogerisms

  • NFL Network’s Red Zone Channel will be more watched than any single game at any time, except for the night games.

    I put together a little drinking game while

    …BZZT…

    watching the Red Zone channel; every time talking head

    Scott Hansen

    said ‘Battle of Ohio’ I drank a dirty martini.  I haven’t had that much olive juice since I spent a month on Crete.

  • Tony

    Romo

    will learn to count to nine, which happens to be his jersey number.

  • The
    Broncos will win 5 more games, which may get them into the playoffs.
    That fifth win will be against the Redskins, it helps that they still
    have two games

    against Kansas City left

    .

    By the way, the schedule on the

    Broncos website

    refers to the Patriots’ location as Boston. I know it’s the AFL’s 50

    th

    anniversary and everything, but that’s too bleeping cute.

AFC Notes – I don’t know if

Troy Polamalu
will be back for Pittsburgh this week, but the defense needs him.  The
Steelers defense hasn’t been this bad in several years, and it’s enough
to make

Mike Tomlin scowl more than normal on the sideline.  I
suspect he does it on purpose because he knows he looks real badass
with those glasses, though.

Hey, speaking of Pittsburgh – when did everyone realize

Willie Parker sucked?  It’s been 2 years now, about time.

Fragile Freddy returns with the ankle surgery for

Fred Taylor
The Patriots say it’s not season ending but seeing as they run their
organization with the same level of honest exchange of information as
the Bush administration, let’s call it a year for Taylor. 

Laurence Maroney,
it’s time to remind everyone why New England goofed when they
mistakenly spent a first round pick on you.  And if that means more

BenJarvus Green-Ellis I can handle it – I take my running backs with many names.

Mixed feelings here about the

Braylon Edwards
trade.  I mean, certainly he had QB issues in Cleveland but he also had
issues…ah…catching the ball.  It’s not like he was running free
down the field all day and

Derek Anderson was short arming
him.  Edwards could barely get open, and when he did the stone hands
took over.  Put up or shut up time for Edwards, whose new coach

Rex Ryan will not put up with any nonsense.

Speaking
of Cleveland, remember when they had that great draft class 2 years
ago?  Yeah, time to rebuild again.  I can always tell because Cleveland
needs to rebuild anytime the Olympics are about to start.  That’s what
happens when you hire New England castoffs to coach your team – ever
notice that

Bill Belichick is kind of a selfish jerk?  I don’t expect he’s transferring much knowledge to his underlings – something to consider once

Eric Mangini completely flames out.  Oh, and not to pile on but trading up to draft

Brady Quinn?  Mistake.

Still
not sold on Denver but I will say this – their defense looks the part. 
Cannot wait, and I mean I bleeping cannot wait, for some snowy Denver
football action featuring

Kyle Orton‘s spectacular neckbeard.  Stay warm, Kyle.  Stay warm.

BetBot Picks of the Week That Nobody Else Likes

So
I get e-mail all the time telling me how terrible my picks are.  Last
week I went 1-2 to put me at 5-4 on the year.

Washington +3.5 over CAROLINA – I know Washington isn’t lighting anyone up, but the Panthers rot. 

Jake Delhomme laying points?  Do not go there.

DENVER +3 over New England – I just like home dogs.  And since we’re done with that,

Ashton Kutcher is a real tool in those camera commercials.

Indianapolis -3.5 over TENNESSEE – Seen anything to suggest the Colts
won’t run up the score on the Titans shoddy pass defense?  Me neither.

So long for now, and remember “Showgirls and gin my friends, showgirls and …BZT…gin.”
