Vinnie’s Pick$ and Pa$$es

Ad for SportsBetting.com



A very bad week for Vinnie.  Vinnie’s about to get a second job to pay for all his losses last week. The icing on the cake was the Tampa game.  An easy winner, tossed away by a couple big plays in the last minutes of the game.  The Steelers in the second half also killed POOR Vinnie.


What does the ‘Steelers’ in the second half mean anyway?  Well, instead of reviewing last week atrocities, let’s look at second half betting.  Last week, the Steelers were –7 against the Browns (for the whole game).  I liked the Steelers, but I didn’t want to lay 7 points with the Steelers.  At half time, the Steelers were trailing by 13, and the second half line as Steelers –6.5.  That essentially made the Steelers +6.5 Home Dogs.  I figured for SURE they would (with the sure hands of Plexico and Hines), get a backdoor freebie TD at the end.  And, the Steelers would come back and might win the game.  Alas, Tim Couch played like Joe Montana, and the Browns NEVER looked back.  OUCH.  Killed over HALF my bankroll on this one play.  Smart lesson; don’t bet too much on any one game.  Reminds me of the SAME lesson I learned last year when I bet on the Steelers against the Texans in the second half last year.


OK, On to this week, very shaken…  But, there is hope!!!
