ECKS & BACON….feel the sizzle!!!

Welcome to Ecks & Bacon for August 30, 2014

Sports Betting News

The long wait for sports bettors that love to wager on football is finally over with the start...

Las Vegas -

This is probably the last time we will be able to use Katherine Webb in the Ecks & Bacon window. Can you pick her out of the crowd???

You can find me in the middle of the Vegas strip at one of the sportsbooks today. Not sure which one, but there are like 25 choices so I'll let you know. Gonna start at a neutral site game in Atlanta, and grab Alabama -26 points over West Virginia. Sure we know about the Crimson Tide having to replace four year starter AJ McCarron, and his gorgeous wife, Katherine Webb. Probably tougher to replace Webb than McCarron. Just ask Brent Musburger. Nick Saban named Blake Sims as the starting QB, which is fine, but if Snoop Doggy Dogg, or is it Snoop Lion now, always get confused, put on a few pounds, he could lead 'Bama to 10 wins. Now look at West Virginia under head coach Dana Holgorsen, and you'll notice a disturbing DOWNWARD trend. When Holgorsen took over in 2011, and he had all of Bill Stewart's kids, they went 10-3. The next year, as those kids started to leave, the Mountaineers dropped to 7-6. Last season, with Holgorsen owning the team, the Mounties stumbled to an ugly 4-8 record. They covered only one of their last seven, and will have trouble getting on the board against the Tide's defense, which I believe is ranked in some spots as the #12 D unit in the NFL!!! Yea, I said the NFL. Also looking at Texas -25 points over North Texas and Wisky +5.5 points against LSU, another neutral site game (Houston, Texas). We're gonna drop half a Benjamin on each game.

Thought BYU would be a bit more sluggish after a long trip East, but the Cougars had no trouble with UConn, easing to a 35-10 victory. It cost me a pair of nickels, and after pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$2043 is the current figure.

And for all my baseball fanatics, we're leaning on the Orioles this evening.
