Last Week’s Stupid Ass Single-Game Parlay: LOSS
About that… Hey, five games over .500 to finish the season. That’s good enough to have only lost a very small amount of money if you’re careful.
Stupid Ass Single Game-Parlays Overall: 2-11
Stupid Ass Single-Game Parlay of the Week
San Diego Chargers +7 and UNDER 47.5 points
The Bengals are undefeated at home, but these are the playoffs and the Bengals don’t win playoff games. The last meeting between these teams was also San Diego’s last loss. And while both quarterbacks were pretty lousy in that game, I’m more comfortable trusting Rivers in a playoff game over Dalton.
Home Favorite of the Week
Indianapolis Colts -1.5 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs are back in the playoffs, which is also their favorite place to lose. In addition to their historical shortcomings, this version of the Chiefs looks pretty shitty. They’ve lost five of seven since their bye week, and beating the Redskins and Raiders should only count as 1 win no matter how many points you score.
Home Dog of the Week
Green Bay Packer +3 vs. San Francisco 49ers
People LIVE in this place. Weird frigid people. The Packers haven’t been able to stop Colin Kaepernick (or anyone else) for a couple of years. Maybe Wisconsin’s fucked to hell climate can help. They won’t have Clay Matthews, but they will have the threat of crippling frostbite on their side.
Road Dog of the Week
New Orleans Saints +3 at Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles “won” the NFC East the way a kid wins the election for secretary of the sophomore class. Because the only people who bothered to run against him are kids from the special needs class. Not that I’m comparing special needs kids to the Cowboys, Redskins and Giants. That’s fucked up.
Literal Dog(s) of the Week
Respect this dog’s stick game.
Fantasy Matchup of the Week
Fantasy season has come to a merciful end. Now we set our sights to coming up with next year’s stupid pun. In the meantime, I am trying to convince my wife that Cassius is an acceptable name for our firstborn. She’s being difficult.
Pro Tip of the Week
Try as I might, I’m probably not going to be able to help you make any money. However, I can offer tips that will help you out in other walks of life. It could be a recommendation on something to read, advice on lighting for your home, something useful I learned on the internet, or, more likely, something about food.
