Chris Borland's decision to retire is pretty pathetic

He say's he has made the decision to give himself a better chance of extending his life, Well Chris, Sorry to tell you mate but if some nut case were to run you over tomorrow, Your good health means nothing, No one knows how long we have to live, His decision reeks of a guy who no longer wants to play in the NFL and therefore has come up with this lame excuse for not playing.

If you truly want to win the Vince Lombardi trophy, I'm sorry but you don't threat over things like concussions etc, Did he think NFL football was a safe sport and therefore he only realized it wasn't after sustaining a concussion or two? Naivety at it's finest.

His decision is basically like a guy who has to decide between continuing to work his 9/5 job and just get by in life or invest in a business to possibly improve his life significantly and run the risk of being in debt or having to find answers later down the line, I know which guy I am, God forbid I start taking the easy option in life, We could die tomorrow, You should never be in your comfort zone, Always strive for more.

Have any of my friends across the pond been watching or following the Cricket World Cup?

I just went onto ESPN.com and the headline was the game between New Zealand and Australia, If ESPN is pushing the Cricket World Cup, Surely it's an attempt at developing interest in the states? However, Having said that, Soccer has just recently started to truly take off, I doubt Cricket will be able to considering it's complexities.

Just a question, Have you watched or even took note of the Cricket World Cup that is going on in Australia and New Zealand, It's been great entertainment mind you, I have Australia winning it what with the talent, being home and emotional motivation as well, One of their players died after getting hit on the head during a match last year, I got them at +250.

The Knicks +11.5 tonight v the Celtics is the best situational bet i've seen in a while

So Phil Jackson criticizes the Knicks effort against the Cavs, Despite them only losing by 1 ATS, Line was +17 and they lost by 18, In the betting world that is giving effort Phil Lol.

Coach Fisher then comes out and says his side are giving effort and now they face a mediocre, overhyped because they are a good ATS side in the Celtics, Who the hell are the Boston Celtics to lay -11.5 against anyone?

I expect the Knicks to win this or lose a close game, Give me the Knicks +11.5, As soon as I heard Jackson's comments, I thought if the Knicks have good value on the spread next game, I will bet them.

Why do us gamblers have such a hard time admitting that we are losing/failing?

Let's cut to the chase, The majority of us are losing, If not we're stuck in .500 ville, Which applies to me.

It's funny how so many of us are losing yet none of us can truly pinpoint what we are doing wrong, If some bozo leaves a message saying bad money management I'm going to go all cyber Jet Li on you, I'm talking about the fundamentals of sports betting.

Why can't we predict who wins a sport game more than 5 times out of 10 if that, A sport which we supposedly follow or think we know, Why can't we? Are we getting influenced by the odds? Are we being lazy?

I just don't understand how so many of us gamblers can lose and not one of us put a finger on what we're truly doing wrong, Discuss.

Anyone on the Clem/GA Tech over, Great value total

I know diddly squat about College basketball, I have watched one College basketball game in my entire life, I've always admired the sport since you yanks seem to go mad for it in March but myself could not make time for it and always valued it beneath the NBA, What with more coverage given to that over here.

The only NCAAB game I've watched was a game in which NC State played a dark clothing team which had a Somalian player called Mo Faried or something, I remember Van Gundy fawning over him, It was a Monday night game.

However the past two days I've spent crunching the numbers, Locating which teams are red hot ATS and which one's are the Radio Shack of the NCAAB betting world, I've also studied which teams are over teams and which are under teams.

Clemson is an under team HOWEVER, The total shift in their games has been huge and they are coming off an over, 116 in a game where there's not a big favourite means we only need a 62-60 game to land the total, If Clemson's O/U totals were a stock the share price would have gone from 40 a share to around 18 a share.

I will make a late play to watch what the market does, As long as the total doesn't get higher than 117, I will definitely make a play on the over.

How can anyone bet on GSW at -16 on the road?

I don't care what the result of this game and what your betting philosophy is, Whether you love betting underdogs or whether you firmly bet faves, How can you bet a side that is could win a game in a blow out and still not cover away from home?

The Sixers have shown a hint of competency in their past few games and that for me is all you need to make a bet on them, How do we not know GSW completely overlook them here, Have a half arse practise leading up to this game and also have their eyes firmly on the all star break?

Give me the Sixers +16 all day long, and if they get smoked by 30, I will be here to take it on the double.

What number would make you think about betting the Lakers vs the Cavs today?

For me anything above 15 would make me interested but if the line is 12 or lower then there's no way I would bet it, Just could not trust this Lakers side to cover that.

What's our opinion of shake shack?

Just how materialised have they turned Christmas?

Don't get me wrong I look forward to this part of the year but I also can't help but notice how insanely materialised they have made it become, Everywhere you look someone is trying to sell you something to buy as a present.

Has anyone started a business on ebay?

If so, How seriously are you running your business? Is it no more than just trying to sell some old junk in the house for a little spending money or can you actually invest big and have wholesalers providing you stock?

Black English football players/coaches slam the idea of Rooney Rule being enforced over here


I never really concerned myself with this topic before but with the talk of it coming over here, I just can't help but shake my head at this.

This is basically discrimination against discrimination, How patronising and demeaning must it feel for the Black candidate to  know you are only being interviewed because you are merely filling a quota. I'm glad those two Black players/coaches have spoken out against it, This is being pushed by the type of White people we all know and hate, The type of White people who give Blacks more reasons to be angry than they actually are, You can't get away from this subject over here now.

What's our take on this Kaci Hickox story?

There's been a lot of overreaction and unnecessary panic shown towards her in my opinion.

Two School shootings on the same day and no one has yet made a thread about that?


What's the matter, Have you lot become immune to school shootings or something? I was expecting a thread, Barely heard it on the news also, Only read about it on twitter.

I'm happy Stephen Tulloch is out for the rest of the season

This is why you don't show boat, Learn to have a bit of humility, How embarrassing is it for him to have to face his family members, team mates and friends now?

I'm not buying this new wave of optimism surrounding Valencia

Tough loss on Sunday, Read the game perfectly, City danced around pretending to win the game whilst Chelsea soaked up the pressure, City made a mistake with the sending off and then Chelsea took advantage, Just didn't think Lampard would stop me winning, I should have took them on the spread. Which is exactly what i'm doing tonight. Getafe +0.5 on the handicap over Valencia, I know there's a renewed sense of optimism surrounding Valencia with the new owner and signing of Negredo but i think they are very over valued for tonights game, Until they show us they are consistent i wont be backing them away from home.

Getafe +0.5 -110 for tonights game

Chelsea might put the title race to bed on Sunday in my opinion

I mean, Just look at the odds for this game tomorrow, City are +140, Draw at +240 and Chelsea at +210, Last year City were -110 against Chelsea, That's how big of a gap Chelsea have bridged on them with the signings of Costa and Fabregas.
We all know Mourinho is a master at winning the big games but that's not the reason i will be betting Chelsea, City are having an identity crisis, Last year they were gung ho, possession based, playing high tempo football and this year they have adapted a more cautious, play on the counter attack mentality. They are not going to score as many goals as last year and are already struggling for goals. City were poor against a very mediocre Bayern side who themselves are having an identity crisis, Mind you most teams this year have changed their philosophies, Chelsea being another who have gone from being a cautious side to a very attacking side.
The odds for the title as they stand are Chelsea -138, City +333, United +900 and Arsenal are irrelevant as they don't want to win the title nor challenge, Just give them 4th and they will be happy to take part. 
Mourinho will be telling his players, Give me a win here boys and the title is ours, Forget playing for a draw and extending the title race, Let's end it here, Win today and you open up a huge gap which would require City, United having to on a 33 game winning streak and Chelsea to drop points in 4/5 games from here to the end of season which would be asking for a lot.

I have no clue about College Football, Can someone help me?

The coverage of college football over here is so poor that i haven't watched college football for about 2 years, I used to watch it but the midweek games are on very late and i make one night of the week priority to stay up late, That is TNF for the NFL. The Satuday games are surrounded by a host of soccer games which takes my attention, But having watched a few games on highlights today, I love what CFB is about. 

Can someone tell me what are the best games to watch/bet on this week? or the marquee games where there's something at stake?

Thanks in advance fellas

The Super Bowl champs open up as -5 favorites against Denver next week

It's down to -4.5 -115 now but I saw it open at -5 +100, That's roughly the same line Seattle had against Green Bay, What are the odds makers trying to say, That Denver are on a par with Green Bay this year? I know the odds don't determine which way the outcome will go but to have Seattle -4.5 against Green Bay and then -4.5 against Denver 2 weeks later is a head scratcher, I was expecting the Seahawks to be -3/3.5 max.

Interesting stuff fellas

How do double digit underdogs fare in divisional match ups?

At first i looked at the Denver v KC game and thought it's an easy cover for Denver but then i realized, The Chiefs played the Broncos close last year and if anything the spread has been inflated simply due to the Chiefs being doubted and not performing in week 1, If you were to take a double digit underdog surely it would have to be a division rival where the odds of a close game are higher.

Law enforcement official claims they sent the Ray Rice video to the NFL in April


Goodell is on the brink in my opinion, I think he is going to get fired or resign himself because this situation is getting ugly.

Surely the Patriots can't go 0-2?

After that woeful 2nd half performance against Miami, My eyes were lighting up at the thought of backing the Pats against the Vikings this week but having watched the Vikings performance in week 1 and being impressed and with it being their home opener and also being in a dome and on turf which the Pats very rarely play on, It just has me doubting myself. Then on the other hand how good is Belichick off of a defeat and how unlikely is it that the Patriots could go 0-2, I love the line i'm getting for the Pats, I'm just not sure whether the situation is right.

I don't understand why the 49ers are being underestimated

As long as they have Harbaugh as coach they will always compete as far as i am concerned, Throw into the mix the Seahawks should have a worse off season than last due to history telling us, Which easily could mean the Seahawks finish 8-8 or 9-7. So in essence the 49ers might only need 10 wins to win the division which i'm confident they can get, St Louis and Arizona should just make the numbers as per usual.

If you turn on ESPN radio or NFL network it's all doom and gloom around the 49ers, I don't understand why?

How farcical has this ice bucket challenge thing become?

It's supposed to be for charity yet all I see are egomaniacs having a good old laugh, No explanation of what the f-ck ALS is or how to donate, Let's just pour ice over ourselves, F-cking narcissist bast-ards.
