Jerry Bo's Bookie Busters: Forgive me, bookies

Yes. These picks are on fire. Matthew Lewis/Getty Images

I was taught "Don't ask questions, ask for forgiveness," so sportsbooks and bookies around the world; forgive me. The previous edition of the Bookie Busters Money Machine read...

On fire!!! A +23 Unit run in 2 days. Welcome to the Machine.

That's all that can be said for the run we are on the past two days. Max plays hitting at over 80 percent, and regular plays are also hot.

Firenado - is said to be similar in appearance to a tornado made out of fire, and that is what we've been as of late. Dangerous results.

Add to that +23 2-day run, and we went 15-4 in a 3-day span of MAX plays, once again giving the books a headache. If played correctly, followers could have enjoyed about a + 45 unit run last week. Never risking more than 5U on a play.

Now we say if, and there's an emphasis on that. I've received quite a bit of private messages asking about bankroll management and people telling me they're disappointed in their results in a way as they feel they weren't maximizing their returns. Some were caught up in betting too much into early games and didn't have enough to cash throughout the day. Others found themselves investing in MLB games between matches conclusively tying up their cash and prohibiting them to bet correctly.

Getting the side right is only part of the journey; know your plan and execute it, don't get sidetracked and tied to other games causing you to miss the moment to capitalize.

The Houston Texans lost again as their road game ineptitude continues. Former Texans stars DeAndre Hopkins and J.J. Watt helped the Cardinals to the 31-5 victory.

1. The lack of talent is getting exposed earlier and earlier each week. The Texans have seen games slip away faster and faster from them each week. The team is overmatched almost everywhere.

2. Penalties remain a problem for the Texans. It seems like clockwork the team gets an illegal motion or illegal formation each week. Jordan Akins torpedoed a drive with a chop block. Max Scharping erased a positive play with a hold.

3. Davis Mills had some solid moments, but again, this team isn't good. It is hard to assess Mills with this team. He's making quicker decisions but he doesn't have the time or the players to make big plays.

4. The offensive line stinks. The interior of the line is still a mess and with Laremy Tunsil down the edges find themselves shaky as well. The running backs don't block well. The blocking tight ends don't block well. It is bad football in what was supposed to be a much-improved unit.

5. Desmond King was the best returner in the preseason. The team elected to give Andre Roberts an opportunity for a few games, but with his departure, the duties went to King. King is the most successful returner the Texans have had in a long while. Yes, it is that clear after just one game.

6. Max Scharping was benched in favor of Justin McCray. McCray produced similar levels of success. Scharping was benched last year for a journey-man veteran as well. The former second-round pick isn't getting it done.

7. Speaking of former second-round picks, Lonnie Johnson had an interception. That was the highlight of his day. Otherwise, Johnson frequently has me asking "what is Lonnie Johnson doing?" The former second-round pick at cornerback has been less than impressive at safety. Johnson seems to frequently be out of position or making the wrong choice in coverage.

8. DeAndre Hopkins had a solid day against the team that traded him away. Hopkins hauled in seven catches for 53 yards and a touchdown. After he scored, Hopkins looked to bring his hands together and mimic a prayer motion. I don't anticipate this was a nod to Arian Foster but perhaps could this have been about Jack Easterby?

9. The Texans had some sacks, but little of that action came when the game was close. Jonathan Greenard added two sacks to his total. The success Greenard is having is frustrating when you consider he couldn't get on the field last season. Charles Omenihu returned to action and had some pressures for the defense.

10. During the game reports surfaced that the Panthers might be interested in trading for Deshaun Watson. It was also reported by the Houston Chronicle Watson had vetoed a trade to Philadelphia, so the Eagles will not be involved in the Watson sweepstakes. The Panthers can only trade two first-round picks. The Miami Dolphins have three first-round picks they can trade for Deshaun Watson.

11. The Texans decided on a "culture" head coach in David Culley. His team has looked lifeless on the road. While the Texans took their beating, the Lions gave it their all against a good Rams team. Detroit is winless, but they play harder and better than the Texans. It grows clearer each week "culture" is meaningless if the team can't win.
