ATS - College BB: 7-5 NFL: 21-20 NBA: 28-35 MLB: 116-91
While it was nice to win $55 in the office-pool pick’em, I don’t think it offsets the multiple car payments and retirement money lost during my NBA catastrophe last week. The only thing that made me smile regarding the professional hardwood this weekend was former baller Keon Clark announcement to a judge that: "I never played a game sober, unfortunately." While I hope he cures his demons, that fact that he admitted drinking at halftime of games is crazier than my azz switching cocktails at halftime in hopes of changing the outcome of a bad investment!
Before I get to my NBA pick (that has to win because of the law of averages), I have to admit I’m actually excited to watch the Bear game tonight. The last few weeks I’ve actually found myself angry that there’s still 7 minutes left in the 3rd quarter because their sooo frickin bad and boring…but this week, we have the Kyle Orton Experience! I have no idea if he’s gonna be any good, or how his facial hair will look under his helmet, but at least it’ll make things more exciting.
INDIANA PACERS (-2) NEW YORK KNICKS
I still can’t comprehend how Kidd, Carter, & Jefferson let the Gotham Garbage beat them Saturday. While the Pacers don’t have the so-called star-power names, their deep, disciplined, and actually have a better record on the road than at home. With everybody healthy, a nice victory at Miami Saturday, and games against Philly and the T-Wolves coming up, I’m guessing the Pacers will be determined to roll into the weekend with a 4-game win-streak. As for the Knicks, they still suck, are the worst frontcourt defending team in the league, and will be mocked by their own fans as soon as the Pacers take a 5-point lead…Pacers by 6-12 points
