Giants win 3-2, eliminate Phillies to win NL pennant

Giants win 3-2, eliminate Phillies to win NL pennant

No one can say the San Francisco Giants took the easy path to the World Series.

They had to wait until the final day to clinch a playoff spot, then had to wait through a tense final out in Philadelphia.

Brian Wilson, Cody Ross and the Giants can exhale. Now they’ll try to bring the first crown to San Francisco.

Juan Uribe hit a tiebreaking homer off Ryan Madson with two outs in the eighth inning and the Giants held off the Phillies 3-2 Saturday night in Game 6 of the NL championship series…more

NFL Computerized Predictions for Week 7

We’re back for another week of picks and predictions. This is a crazy season and even through the horrors of a .500 straight up pick record, the predictor always pays off in the long run and in a 6-8 week straight up managed to go 8-6 ATS for a net gain. So for the year it is now at .500 straight up and  .554 ATS or the important number of +$212.50

This week will probably feature a ton of upsets again. It might be tough to pick the games, but it sure makes it fun to watch.

Last Weeks Record: 6-8 Straight Up 8-6 ATS (+120.00)
Year to Date: 37-37 Straight Up 41-33 ATS (+212.50 Net)

This is our fifth year and our overall record now stands at 676-407 (62.42%) Straight Up / 595-488. (54.94%) ATS Our total win based on 1 unit ($100.00): +$5487.50

Remember we do this for fun, so take it for what it is worth, especially early in the season. Remember we live in Nevada so it is legal for us to bet. If you live elsewhere this is just for giggles

And they got there with a win over their old nemesis, the defending champion New York Yankees.

Vladimir Guerrero drove in three runs before Nelson Cruz hit a towering, two-run homer and the Rangers beat New York 6-1 Friday night in Game 6 of the AL championship series, the biggest victory in the franchise’s 50 seasons. ...

Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

Week 7 Computerized NFL Power Rankings

Guess who is on top of the Week 7 power rakings? Here's a clue: J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets. New York jumps over the Steelers and heads into the bye as the No. 1 team in the NFL. At 5-1, the Jets have won three road games and their only loss was by a point at home to Baltimore. They have earned the top spot in the Power Rankings the hard way. That takes nothing away from the Steelers who got Big Ben back last week with a tune up at home against Cleveland. This week gets tougher at Miami.

The AFC still rules the power rankings through 6 full NFL weeks. Is anyone from the NFC going to step up? The Saints look to be putting it together now so watch out above… Read more

NFL Computerized Predictor: Week 6

NFL Computerized Predictor: Week 6

We're back for another week of picks and predictions. Another week beating the odds, and making Vegas look stupid... That's the idea, anyway. But in this year of upsets and completely screwed spreads, it doesn't always work out that way, but we keep plugging away anyway.

So far this year the underdogs have been kicking ass, that cannot hold up over a whole season though, so take it for what its worth. When we look at the league, dominant teams are not as dominant as they were and bad teams are not as bad as they were.  If you are betting the Lions are 1-4 and the Cowboys are 1-4 but the Lions are 4-1 ATS they are a lot better than they have been getting credit for, meanwhile the Cowboys just suck as they cant win at all.

That is a hint for this weeks games as Detroit is +10 against the Giants and in case you haven't noticed, the Giants are not ten points better than anyone.

Then how does one bad team get to be 7 points better than another bad team, the battle of the Bay is Sunday and the 49ers are 7 point favorites. How is that even possible?

Just some food for thought as we get into this weeks predictor…

Babes: Playmate Jaime Edmondson with Playboy’s NFL Playoff Picks

Despite her loyalty to the Miami Dolphins, whom she cheered for as a pro cheerleader for years, Jaime Edmondson (2010 January Playmate of the Month) took one for the team and made NFL gear of the 12 teams Playboy magazine picked to head to the playoffs look as sexy as ever. Though we may not agree with the picks, we cannot disagree with the presentation.

NFL Power Rankings: Week 6

NFL Computerized Power Rankings: Week 6

Finally some stability in the power rankings as four of the top five hold on to their spots while the Colts move up three spots to join the top 5 after defeating the previously unbeaten Chiefs who fall down to the 11 spot. With Ben coming back to Pittsburgh this week, it may be very difficult to dislodge the Steelers from the number one spot.

We know there are good arguments to be made for the Jets and the Ravens to be number one, but when you dive into the numbers its the lack of scoring offense, turnovers, and thus the point differential that is holding back the Ravens and the easy (15th ranked) schedule holding back the Jets…more

NFL Computerized Predictor: Week 5

Well, last week certainly showed that parity is back in the NFL. With a slew of upsets and new teams leading all over the league like Kansas City and St. Louis the NFL is as unpredictable as ever. We warned you about the two trap games last week and if you listened to us you would have been ok at 9-5 ATS as we were right about both of them. We will give it our best shot as always though. This week undefeated KC goes to Indy and although the predictor says they will cover, remember that is another trap situation as they are undefeated and the predictor has no brains, its just a numbers cruncher so that game is one to be wary of. Indy is mad, and KC may not be as good as their record as the schedule gods have been very favorable to them.

Roy Halladay tosses no hitter

Roy Halladay spent his whole career waiting for this start, wondering what it would be like to pitch in the playoffs.

It was better than he—or anyone else—could have predicted.

Halladay threw the second no-hitter in postseason history, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in Game 1 of the NL division series on Wednesday.

“It’s surreal, it really is,” Halladay said. “I just wanted to pitch here, to pitch in the postseason. To go out and have a game like that, it’s a dream come true.”

Don Larsen is the only other pitcher to throw a postseason no-hitter. He tossed a perfect game for the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series against Brooklyn. The 54th anniversary of Larsen’s gem is this Friday.

Halladay took the Year of the Pitcher into October. The excitement spread beyond Citizens Bank Park—the last two outs were shown on the video board at Target Field, where the Twins were preparing to play the Yankees, and Minnesota fans cheered.

The All-Star right-hander, who threw a perfect game at Florida on May 29, dominated the Reds with a sharp fastball and a devastating slow curve in his first playoff start.

The overmatched Reds never came close to a hit. Halladay allowed only one runner…Read more at Yahoo Sports

Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

Here they are the computer has crunched the numbers and come up confused as the rest of us this topsy turvy season. The Chiefs are the last undefeated team standing at least for the next few days, but that wont propel them to the top, they haven't played enough good teams yet to know where they are, give it two weeks then see where they end up. Parity is here this year in a huge way as the Steelers are the number one team and they still have questions, it seems as if every team has questions be it the Chiefs inexperience, the Jets and Falcons young quarterbacks, The Ravens are not far from 2-2 and Cleveland beat them badly. What team is going to step up and take control?

NFL Computerized Game Predictor: Week 4

image We enter week 4 with just three undefeated teams, two of those could have their first loss this weekend leaving only the Chiefs standing. Are we in some kind of an alternate universe here. The Bears should have their hands full on the road against a Giants team that is capable of ending their run and the Steelers get the Ravens tough defense to contend with, and remember they are still starting a fourth string quarterback. No matter the record, there is a reason why Batch is where he is on the depth chart. The predictor says they will both win and cover, but these are the predictor traps early in the season with an undefeated record, the predictor may be putting too much credence in Batch and company so I would be very careful with those games.  The matchups this weekend just get better with Vick facing off against McNabb in Donovan’s Philly homecoming. We end the week with a fantastic Monday night game where the Phins are favored by a point against the Patriots. In a big game, we cant bet against Brady and the predictor agrees although just barely. Scroll down for the complete picks.

Last Weeks Record: 9-7 Straight Up 9-7 ATS (+82.50) (3/4 play) week 3
Year to Date: 18-14 Straight Up 19-13 ATS (+232.50 Net)

This is our fifth year and our overall record now stands at 657-384 (63.11%) Straight Up / 573-468. (55.04%) ATS Our total win based on 1 unit ($100.00): +$5590.00

Week four is our first full week of play as the numbers are coming together starting about now as the predictor takes a few weeks to get all the statistical data in place and the teams start to play with some sort of consistency. Remember we do this for fun, so take it for what it is worth, especially early in the season. Remember we live in Nevada so it is legal for us to bet. If you live elsewhere this is just for giggles.
