Very fast recap of the disaster last week. Keeping this short and sweet. No need to elaborate when your 11 year old daughter could pick better games blind and high on candy.

3 Team 10 point teaser (L)

Pats +1  Fire Brady

Texans +4.5 Fire Everyone.

Auburn +15.5 Never mattered because the Texans suck and Brady is now 1,562-2 at home in the regular season vs the AFC.

Nebraska/Oregon OVER 68.5 Never in doubt. (W)

Wisconsin – 20 1st half vs Florida Atlantic. Wisconsin sucked. (L)

Giants +4 @ Dallas Can’t cap ODB not playing and the Cowboys RB situation. My fault. (L)

YTD Record (2-6) (-$205) WE WILL REBUILD. 

3 Team 10 point teaser. (Risking $60 to win $50)

Baltimore +2 The Browns can not move the ball against this defense.

Oakland -3.5 The Jets are a joke.

Denver +12.5 Give me a live home dog + double digits. 

Risking $55 to win $50

Baltimore/Cleveland Under 39– Games tend to stay under when the AFC North squares off. Cleveland should really struggle to score.

USC/Texas Over 67– Both teams can score points. If Texas can get to 21 I think this goes over.

Texas Tech/Arizona St Over 76– (2 UNITS) Risking $110 to win $100. This game could get into the 100’s. Texas Tech has scored 50 or more points in 11 of their last 13 home games. Last years score was 68-55. This will be our first 2 unit play of the year.

I might add one more on Saturday. Fade at your own will.

Last week I mentioned dogs that cover in the NFL usually win the game more times than not. Meaning the points never come into play. Last week that idea went 4-1- the Jags, Lions, Raiders, and Chiefs all covered and won straight up. The only dog to cover last week and not win was the Browns. The Chargers and Bears pushed- depending on your closing number.

Houston Astros right fielder Kyle Tucker is open to a long-term contract and says preliminary dialogue had begun.

“Personally, I think we have the best team in the league," Tucker said Monday as the Astros started full squad workouts. “That’s the vibe around the clubhouse. You have to have that mindset, but you still have to earn it."

José Altuve agreed two weeks ago to a contract that will pay $125 million from 2025-29, raising the Astros' commitment to the second baseman to $151 million over the next six seasons.

Tucker has a $12 million, one-year deal and is eligible for free agency after the 2025 season. Houston faces an uncertain future with third baseman Alex Bregman, who gets $28.5 million in 2024, the final season of a $100 million, five-year contract.

Astros GM Dana Brown anticipates making offers.

“I’m always open to having those conversations and talk it through,” Tucker said. “I’d rather not prolong it forever.”

A two-time All-Star, the 27-year-old Tucker hit .284 last year with 29 homers, 30 stolen bases and a career-best 112 RBIs.

Bregman, who turns 30 on March 30, also is a two-time All-Star. He batted .262 with 25 homers and 98 RBIs last year.

“I expect to have the best season I’ve ever had,” he said Sunday. ”My body feels in incredible shape, my swing feels better than ever."

Bregman is represented by agent Scott Boras, who usually prefers his clients test the free-agent market.

“We’re listening to everything the team has to say," Bregman said. “I’m letting Scott and the Astros do that together and handle that for me. So that way I can be fully focused on baseball and winning and do the things I love to do playing ball for this great city."

“I absolutely loved every single second here," Bregman added. “Being able to put on this jersey is a dream come true. When it comes to a contract, I let Scott do that. That’s why I have an attorney working for me."
