My fellow gamblers, good evening. Another iffy week along with more political prop bet wins. So far I'm 3-2 on the debate bets netting a small profit. That's nice because it made up for once again buying into a short road favorite in the Eagles and placing my bet so early that Denver's QB still had a bit of a question mark.
I also said everyone can say 'I told you so' if my non-standard teaser didn't work. I guess that's one way to prove why that rule is in place. Today, we're going to do another first. This will be my first 'first half' bet. Quite simply, a first half bet is a bet that only applies to the score at the end of the first half, and Thursday night we have an excellent opportunity to exploit this option.
Season Record: Overall (14-11) Spread (8-6) Total (2-2) Teaser (4-2)
SD 1st Half (+3) - San Diego is 2nd in the league in first half points with 17.8. Denver is 15th with 11.2. Yes the Chargers are 1-4, but they lose the 4th quarter. They're an amazing first half team, and especially with it being in San Diego I expect the Chargers to come out playing hot. Betting the underdog in the first half has the added benefit of the tie. When we bet a full game, obviously a 0 point game is only rarely an option. At the end of the first half though we could absolutely see a tie game, although I expect San Diego to be in the lead, and then we get the win.
I'll be back in a couple days with some analysis of how my teasers have been doing overall this season and my predictions for the weekend's action.
