"todd firmin" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"Everything was closing. And we couldn't do remote appearances like we normally do. So I can't believe it's been a full year. Hopefully next year. At this time when it's football Friday before the Super Bowl. We're back out with the people where we like to be talking about the big game that we do, But we're gonna break it down today. I mean, we got we got you covered. Your coat's going to give you his keys. We got a lot of different angles to talk about more profits We spent all week doing that will give you some of our final thoughts. Todd Firmin. About an hour and 10 minutes from now live in Vegas. You don't want to miss him. Listen to what he has to say about how to bet the big game and some of the profits that he likes and some of the profits that the sharp betters like Mike North has his bonus play Mikey at 11, 45 Water and Sylvia about 10 minutes to talk about their big pre game extravaganza on the Twitch Channel. On Sunday. 3 to 5. Switch that TV or download the twitch app Search. ESPN 1000 Chicago That's going to be great, so we'll talk to the guys about what kind of fun is planned and what everybody can expect. If you jump on and pre game with us, hosted by Bottle and Sylvie. There was a huge bet. Made yesterday of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. $3.5 million and a half mil coming out of a mattress. Mac, be Zoe's making a big player, wasn't Bezos you? No, No, This is mattress boy. Three. What is what is 3.5 mil like? Let's do the matter What? You're on the game. Stop right before people artificially set in on the game. Stop thing. You could have that kind of money just laying around now. I guess that's true if you weren't part of the side that got short squeezed and you on the other side. Will you make money like 3.5 Million for Beezus is really like nothing. It's nothing. It's like a couple dollars, three minutes of work for him. I mean, that's it. It's crazy, but mattress Mac who's Ah, He's like a furniture store magnet. I bright in Texas and Houston was a big, successful gambler, and he can So he could move the number a little bit about 3.5 sh mill. He bought the adjusted lining one of the hook Smart, right, So he's got Tampa so he's got to share the 3.5 3 in the chair. The early money real quickly. Carmen. How does that work? Can you You don't bring $3.5 million. Well, he did it on Draftkings. I believe we didn't drop. Okay, believe that that much under get his account. Would you be able to dig? They take action when the biggest sports book would I mean absolute, But you You don't just come in with With a suitcase of money doing much better on Draftkings. You don't have to tell you something about the book money. But at the book you can you can money. Mayweather comes in with cash. Believe Foy made whether a lot of times like the show of it goes in with cash makes like a $4,000,005 million bet, and I'll have it in cash. I have in cash. Yes. How did you get your hands? I mean, the bank doesn't just give you five smell. Does it like over the course of time you accumulate that kind of money, and you have to go to a Federal Reserve bank. That's what you have to do. Usually, you know, one of those big like corporate headquarters where they're carrying that kind of millions of dollars, right on premise. Ease. On at something That's the way it works. That's a big bet on the early sharp money came in on Tampa to take that lying down a half take after it opened a couple of weeks ago, Okay, and the sharp side has been the winning side. In the last 10 years. Quite often, you know, wherever the Sharps put their money, that team has covered the spread more often than not in the Super Bowl in the last 10 years, so Maybe Tampa's the play. I don't know. I'll be honest. I wish I could have a little bit more conviction one way or another on the side. I'll be playing some bad some exotics and prop that stuff like that. I don't have too much conviction. I made a small bet on the Kansas City Chiefs minus three when the line did get knocked down when it wasn't over the key number and it was at three. And I didn't know if it would settle there or not, if it would go up or down a little bit more. With that early money in Tampa, I thought maybe I'd better at minus three small bet. Probably not getting anything else as far as the game goes on that car, But if you have billions of dollars being waged and you get 1 $3.5 million bad hats doesn't really move the needle. It doesn't mean it's not like you're at highly or something, and all of a sudden you put 50,000 down on the horse. That's gonna you know, set those odds on that horse down Remarkably, a week. 14 game, right? It's different. But you're right. You're talking about wagering in the hundreds of millions or billions of dollars. No, you're absolutely right. I have the Travis Kelsey receptions Bet. The over the over like that. I like that about yardage bet. Same thing with Tyree killer. Okay, and I think they will throw the ball 40 plus times. Even Kansas City throws the ball. I think Kansas City throws the ball 40 plus times and for them, it's gonna be a short, crisp Pasching game, and then they'll take their shots. You know the patients they have Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom! Boom, boom shot! Boom! Boom, boom, get him sitting a little bit of squatting double moves shot that kind of thing. You know, I'm saying that's what I'm looking at. Both teams like going down the field. Nobody had more deep passes in the NFL this year than Tom Brady believe that nobody We've talked about his arm strength. And look, I do think he's lost a little zip on like that. 17 20 yard out. You know you're cold talk about the elite guys. All the elite quarterbacks throughout. Really the last 40 years of cash, you know, doesn't matter much in the NFL. It's only probably about Four yard difference, but it's still that far hash that out. Frank going back to the left Your car, says those of the guys with that true elite arm talent, and Brady struggles with that throw look at all the pick six is late last year and early this year. It's almost like they said. There's one throw he maybe can't make anymore, And it's that throw other than that Brady's arm is still accurate. It's still strong and because of the offense in which he plays now, with Bruce Arians and his whole philosophy of No risk in no biscuit. No, no quarterback in the league, threw the ball down the field more often on then Tom Brady. We had the pleasure of talking to sell Pel earlier in the week. He's trying to convince me that Hey, His strength is there it's this is there those three parachutes he threw up against Green Bay Packers and one went off Mike Evans and fair little bit over thrown off of my Kevin's hands? I thought maybe he could go up a little bit higher to go ahead and get that one. I give you my mutual blame free the quarterback in the receiver on that 1 50 50. The other ones he was throwing up there. You do that against Kansas City, You will pay the ultimate price. That's so you cannot do that. Against that point. You're the pop up like that, I think was the third one that he threw that last pop up. That's a product of him at 43 years old. The one thing he'll do is he'll get rid of the ball before he gets hit like he doesn't stand in the way he once did, And it's probably the port moved because allowed him to excel and played. At this age at a high level. He avoids the big hits, and there's another one to a 50 50 ball down the middle of the field that came as a reception for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a big gainer for them. That's dangerous play. Dangerous play. Ah, better defense of back makes a better plan that ball in the Packers defensive back did so if you've got thoughts on the game and any profits that you like, or you want our opinions on 3123323776. We'll also have some phone with Super Bowl trivia in about 30 minutes with Get a little interactive. They're so that'll be good. Your co is going to give you his keys to the game at 11 15. I mean, there's really so much to go over. This is a rematch of a week 12 game in which you know the final score was maybe Ah lot closer than the way the game actually unfolded. It was.

"Twitter's great. Let's hit some of these, You know? Yeah, I Shawn's cracking me up. What? The f kind of Bs. Is this My Titans get a pre mentioned during your interview. Kind of, like, out of pity. I'm not pity that is true, but in all seriousness I understand it, man. If your team if you are titans from hell, If you're a Colts fan, you're listening tonight. There might be some fans and say, Wait a minute. You're not talk about the bills. The Packers you played on Saturday. What are you doing? It's just there's so much going on with the Jets, actually winning a game college football playoffs will get to everyone but One of those guys that when my team's playing well, I don't necessarily want people gushing praise all over them because I still remember being 16 3 and hearing people telling me that the Raiders were going about it for the Super Bowl, so maybe sometimes silence is the best thing. But Arnie in all honesty, That's a fun little battle right now between the Titans and the Colts that it's currently shaping up for Six in the fourth spot. Technically right now, the Browns have that five spot ahead of the Colts and the Titans own a tie breaker over the Colts on I think I brought their last two weeks down tight. That's play the Packers and the Texas to wrap things up. The Colts have to take on the Steelers of the Jaguars. So if the Titans hold serve, they won the division and they're sitting the four seed and probably looking pretty good. No, it was the first round matchup. That is a good rates for 45 and six and and I do want to say congratulations to the Buffalo Bills. When I got married to my wife was a die hard bills fit. It was 25 years ago. It was the last time the bills had won a division. They'd think we'd have to wait 25 years to see what another one, but they and she was so into the game. Even what it was, like 40 something the 13 or whatever was she's like No, don't do I go with just stop already. She's like you don't understand. It's the bills. I go. Stop saying you, won you. Congratulations. So 25 long years. Unbelievable. That's what about four years ago? What did the division not a marriage? I just want to be a girl that off. Thank you. That's very clear. Very clear that up there also, Sean, I very much have that anchorman complex. So one of these days, I'm sure I'll slip one of the F bombs that you tweet out. Paul writes going into the 2018 draft. I was hoping the bucks would lamb Sam Darnel land Sam Donald and didn't what? Mayfield or Allen? Oops, You never know how these guys are going to turn out in the NFL. Yeah. If I'm sitting here and I've got an M v p valid, I've gotta suddenly started. I think my homes is the m v p, But I'm suddenly starting. Look at Josh Alan a little bit deeper, aren't you? I don't know if he's gonna win it, But you really got to start digging into the numbers because this is pretty impressive. What He's developed already with Stefan digs. Absolutely. But you can't take it from the homes. If we're gonna talk about numbers, right? Just go back to what? The 21 1 record in the last 22. But that doesn't really matter which you've done this year. Um, yeah, He's Josh. L will get votes. But he doesn't have the cachet that Mahomes has u C l, A Dodger. Frank writes the Cowboys. So just a game out of first place in the NFC East. I can't even fathom the possibility of them hosting a playoff game. No, let alone possibly winning that game, but they lost both games to Washington. So if they finished with the Thai Washington we get the tie break so They're technically like they have to finish a full game ahead of Washington to get the win that division, right? Washington has to lose their last two games. The Cowboys have to win their last. Yes, on. I know what we're talking about a team that might get in at seven and nine s O, But Washington sitting at six and eight And you heard the savior. Bring it up the bottom. The hour Update next week, it's Washington in the Panthers were Ron Rivera could clinch a playoff spot by beating his former team. Meanwhile, the football team wraps things up with Philadelphia and their final weekend for the For the Dallas Cowboys, who are still technically alive in this mix of surprising as it seems, They've got the Eagles and the Giants to wrap things up, and New York Giant fans are kinda like I'm not dead yet. It's the Monty Python line. Whenever there they've got. They've got the Ravens and the Cowboys to wrap things. Good luck area. With that is, you know they talk about when it's a good brawl. It's a dogfight. What can we say whenever it's not really a dogfight, Arnie, and it's just kind of a couple of guys slapping at each other and and not really making contact, because that's what this is like a rock fight between the NFC East teams. Yeah, but it's gonna be a good fight for that last spot between Arizona, Chicago and maybe even Minnesota, Depending How they come into this thing, But the be a pretty good race there. Oh, yeah. And you know what The other thing that's interesting here is with the way Tampa Bay looked in the first half. I mean, I'm not ready to go ahead and say that they're locked in either, but they do wrap up with the Lions and the Falcons of the Falcons played the much better than I expected them to. Today. You get that first touchdown past Antonio Brown. So maybe that starts clicking. I know, I know. Hey, Buccaneers with that was impressive and For those of you that love the percentages. Here's the numbers for the first pick. Now, the JAG wires have a 71% chance to finish with the first pick in the NFL draft. The Jaguars wrap things up this year with the Bears and the Colts. The Jets, who won today. Funny. We're bringing up one in 13 teams. The Jets finished with the Browns and the Patriots. It's got to be fitting whenever they beat the Patriots in the eyes, Isn't it all right. When we come back to the Geico Fox Sports Radio Studios will start diving into some of the highlights from the day that stood out to us more of your tweets and Todd Firmin coming up next hour with only a plague on Fox Sports Radio. More.

"Dungy called it a giving up type performance. That is now it is now the responsibility of the defense to go ahead. Score some points. That's just the way it is. I'm sorry. Number four. Go to my good friend Charles lit up. Before that, your good friend mark for the love of everything. That's Holy Charles. Please don't blow the quarterback's knee out with your helmet and get run over and trucked on every single play on Sunday. It's not going away with some leverage. Play with some technique. I don't care about your big toe. You're gonna hurt somebody important back there. Okay, Charles, please quit getting trucked. And those are the keys to a bears victory against Detroit on Sunday. Good news. One of those keys. Your guy was talking about a key mix. I mean, he was upgraded. So is limited. So that's good. Maybe training in a better direction. Yeah, it makes a big difference. I like to have him in there. Yeah, I think you're absolutely right. York the bears for just the second time. Our favorite three point favorite with his offense.

"Sports Radio Studios every single Sunday at some point during the day, our Nielsen meet sweetheart. It's kind of old school while you have the old yellow note pad. I do too. I'm not dogging it. And while different notes I haven't I haven't even progress to having my own iPad have to borrow my kids. I am a cannonball your iPad. But our deal stands like a a shot of some of the notes he's made and we'll compare and contrast, We'll kinda go three things with so much going on in week eight Arnie and so much going on in the National Football League in college football in general, we didn't even have to have that exchange today, didn't we? I said All I got is football. My friend did whatever happened. Just talk about what happened today and yesterday. That's all I got for you. There's nothing really break out. That s O. We got Todd Firmin coming up next. Our obviously We already have our first gambling question of the day that hit us up on Twitter from 10. You can hit on me and I up throughout the show on Twitter is thinking genius. One that's on the S T I N k I n genius in the number one on that plank show and everybody should be following at Fox Sports Radio. Tim writes. What bothered me about the Jets loss. You're down 26. But the point spread is 19. They had the ball with 60 seconds left in midfield. And they run the clock out. Why didn't they try and beat the spread? What? You wantto have some dignity? PS. I had no money on the game. Forget about dignity. But but coaches in college Aguilar cognizant that if they could beat the spread, I think they tried to because of the alumni who bet on the team. I think they do it for the alumni. You get You get attacks at halftime. Listen here, Coach told I've got you guys plus minus 20. So at the very least, if you have the ball with five to go, can you drive down and try to pat this doing some a little bit? Do something on one more quick one Because we do have Tio. We have to catch up with the constraints the broadcast clock. Mike is absolutely reading my mind tonight. My tweets, Addison says Arnie is priceless. He literally talked for two years about tanking for two hours. And one game into his career. He wants to trade for the uber driver. The Cowboys started tonight. He's just mad that his Patriots are now pathetic like this correct, Mike on one thing, Joe, and it didn't take me one game was just until he got sacked and fumbled. That was the first pass, wasn't it? I did, by the way again to peel back the curtain. A little bit more is the first thing that I noticed on my phone after that is a bobo tax. It says. My daughter was horrible. Who won the game, though, right? I mean, you want the game two years for the making of a Hall of Fame quarterback, the love tended dead Marino and and that's what I got. Oh, my God, you know, it's like I got Rahman instead of steak is chapels on the new, Still a Dodger, Frank writes Arnie the Dolphins could have had Justin Herbert instead. Could you just imagine that I'm going to cry about that for 20 years, man? By the way, I know the Chargers lost today. This will be a constant theme tonight, but Justin Herbert is thie riel. Deal and Bronco fan feel good about getting that win. But that was greasy with a capital G and somebody stop drew lock from dancing. That's not drip. That's not that's not any type of.

"If we were playing by yourself? Do you buy that The Clippers are in serious trouble or a minor inconvenience. So serious, serious trouble? What? Are you kidding me? They owe their bleeding and you just can't stop the bleeding. No matter how much pressure you're putting on it. You've got to take them to the emergency. Ramon. Oh, they They can't wait any longer. You know, it's like sometimes, like, okay, it's going to get better. I'll just go and put a band aid on it. Don't know. Know you. You need to see a doctor. They're in big trouble right now. Tonight, Jamal Murray finished with 50 points. He was nine of 15. From the three point line. We talk about emerging stars out of the bubble. His team loses by two the Nuggets fall to the Utah Jazz 1 29 1 27. You're to say, Go bring this up because Well because Donovan Mitchell scored 51 What's kind of odd with a 51 point game. He only made 43 pointers. So my man was attacking the Ram 15 of 27 from the floor 17 of 18 from the charity Stripe Arnie, he added seven assists. And now now the Utah Jazz. Are up two games to one in this best of seven series is Luca Donovan Mitchell Book or Tatum already, guys? Sorry, 3 to 1 that are putting up all these type of points. Is it because that were in the bubble and we're scoring Mohr. There's a lack of defense so We have to take that with a grain of salt, or, you know you don't like the scoring 30 something points. You know when the scores air like 95, 90 or anything like that was when Michael played, you know no here, it's It's hard to tell. And it's funny because it's that balance. Okay, So how much of this do we say? Years because of this sat right, right? Unique. How much of it is just finally getting that opportunity to break out How much of it is the way this season has been segments it right. You had Essentially what? February March April, May. Well, I guess. March April May and into most of June already had four months off in the middle of the season. Essentially, you played only eight games. To ramp up to the playoffs while we cut this season. Oh, gosh, What did we end up totally playing for the MBA season? So I mean, you cut this season. How much of it can you stop and say some of these guys, They're just fresher or is that me reaching a little bit know that? I mean, that's that's a big thing. Also, there definitely fresher. There's no doubt about that, and I'm wondering if there's no fans. We've brought that up before. How much that has to pay and play into it. Is it really the fans getting on the player's nerves and make it a little bit nervous? Or, you know, they just have the free reins Now Just go up and down the court. No defense? No, there isn't a lot of defense defense it all. Yeah. The Lakers actually play some defence in the last two games. I was like, What is this? That they're doing right now on the other team has the basketball. What? Why did they keep trying to take it from them? But it is. It is a fascinating case that if you really want to dig into it, as are the numbers now I find this interesting just on social media here on our show tonight as we kick off our number two as we mentioned Todd Firmin in about 10 minutes. We've got NFL notes coming up in our final hour. We're going to kick it off with Talking about the sea in the NFC North as we continue our divisional previews, But when I brought up Hey, envy a rating seems to be a major conversation. Here's the first three tweets that we get. This is from Jess to rights. Come on, guys. You know exactly why the ratings are down on. Then there was let's see, Where's the other one of you Just stop there. We know exactly why. Well, I would assume he's trying to say it's political. I would assume that justice saying that its political No, It's the fact that we're starting games at 1 33 30. So what? You know we're going like that Those those games are going to get no ratings whatsoever. 1, 30 Eastern. Forget about that, and What's the Knicks game? After that 3, 34 o'clock or whatever it is, you're going to draw anything on that one, either. So you might as well write those games off run hard, everyday rights. You don't have to overthink it. Arnie the ratings for the N ba in the NFL Major League Baseball. Just look at the correlation when they all decided to become social justice warriors instead of sports entertainers. I'm a longtime fan of all these sports, I will never spend money on any of them ever again. You're going to miss out, bro. I'm just telling you right now you're just going to enjoy standing up to them because they're standing up for what they want to believe in. But I almost feel bad for you for what you're going to miss. So don't spend your dime. Don't buy your extra cable packages. Don't buy your shirts, your hats, but you're missing out and it's just It's sad that you would think you're goingto your That's your stand to take away something that you love. Chris. You know, there are people that think like that. So my question is, why would you just not? Watch. The beginning of the NFL of that bothers you about what's going on with the anthem and the kneeling. Then just don't watch the beginning of it and enjoy the rest of the game. From there on out Now, people going to say, Well, the n ba you know, it's different is not just the kneeling or whatever. But hey, just, you know, block that part out and then watch the rest of the game and enjoy it on the way you can't do that. You know what Mark Ruffalo. You know Mark Ruffalo is after the actor. He's the He's the I feel like I've I've almost heard you drop like five bombs tonight. If you notice that is, Auntie just Is he coming close tonight? Or is this just excitement? I'm just worried. Maybe it's the whole week that we've had as far as people dropping bombs on the air, but with that said Mark Ruffalo is one of the most insufferable people on social media. I mean, he really is. But I'm not going to sit here and say I am not watching the Hulk. I am not watching Iron man and the Hulk battle because Mark Ruffalo I mean, people get and then the other, cram it down my throat. I see Black lives matter on the court. You know what I saw? I saw Luca dropping a dime I saw I wasn't even paying attention to the court. I wasn't letting it bother me at all My mother loved bless her heart lover to discuss. Why are they wearing masks in the introduction to the Indy 500 like I don't know There's a pandemic going on this stuff. Isn't bother me. So for the people that I I can't take it anymore. Why? Why make yourself suffer for something That brings us so much joy? Why make yourself suffer? I mean, I hate it for run hard everyday. That doesn't watch the MBA because that shot by Luca Luca was something pretty special Army That was something pretty awesome, and it sucks that your political belief.

Are these really the questions that I was called here to answer? This man has the knowledge and insights to put some money in your pocket. How 'bout you twenty bucks? I can get you gambling. No way. I'll give you three two one five to one. And. Insider Todd firm in joins Carmen in Europe. This time every Friday throughout the football season. He is at Fermanagh Twitter at checkout his podcast about the board podcasts. From the world wide world of gambling. It's carbon in your rap. The weekend a football Friday with Tito's handmade, vodka betcha. Kogyo guys we're out of twin peaks in oakbrook terrace. Getting ready for Super Bowl fifty thrown the wild world of gaming car. There you go like to call it. Thank you. You're gaming gaming. We cleaned. It up. Gambling is illegal Bush would try gaming lies. Todd Vervins live in Vegas. This is a pretty wild weekend out. There isn't it? There's no doubt about it. Guys. Everybody makes their annual pilgrimage here to take advantage of either the side or the total the laundry list of props that are readily available across Las Vegas boulevard. It's one of the better sports weekends to be here in town. There is no doubt about it. I think I heard you yesterday Waddle and Silvy say that there are upwards of five hundred pets is that right? If not more some of the shops now west gate is kind of the leader in the clubhouse. When you look at how the market has really grown exponentially over the last handful of years is everyone looks to kind of one up the competition, and that even pales in comparison to what's available offshore when they can offer everything under the sun from an entertainment standpoint retirement color of liquid poured on the game winning head coach Bryce Harper's total contract compared to Tom Brady passing yards. I mean this time of year in a game of this magnitude. You're really only limited offshore by your creativity here in Nevada. You're limited a little bit by the gaming control board. How many will you play? For me. I play a decent amount of mass props. And it's the same ones that I'll bet every year if I feel they're off by twenty five or thirty cents. They're not big investments. They're not massive positions. It's just feeling like it's a numbers game that you can take advantage. So I get a percentage of some of the bachelorette my guys will make and then for me personally this year because the game has really wrap my brain into a pretzel. I don't have a single player specific prop that I've wagered on just yet. Are you going to be a couple of that? I'm looking at to kind of get my hands here because hopefully, all the W MVP listeners aren't going to come out here and BB to some of the numbers. I wanna see Todd Gurley rushing yards. Come down and touch more. I think there's an overreaction to the lack of touches he had in a game against the saints. How quickly we forget that. He was an integral part of what they did offensively against the Cowboys only a week before. So that number dipped into the fifty I dabble there. I'll be looking for Todd Gurley to score a touchdown as well. I think that number may come down to a dollar forty pretty much the going rate at this point that will most likely be my by point closer to Sunday hoping that I can save a nickel or dime there. When I look at some of the other player prophesy, I wanna see the general public comment, Dr Brandin cooks up to go under in both receptions and total yards. And then I think Robert woods, I'm curious to see how that market ultimately settled. But the big thing about it guys. If I don't feel I have an edge it, I can explain more. So on the football field the money for me. It'll be just as green and. I bet the NHL college basketball in the NBA on Monday. And while the recreational better doesn't love to hear that. I mean, that's kind of been my mentality is I treat this more like a business and recreation, my guy Lucy's out in Vegas right now. He sent me a bet that he made yesterday. I think you might want some action on this. He feels it's the best product that's available out there. You got this one at south Pointe. Roughing the passer penalty, accept it. Yes. Plus one fifty for a roughing the yes is the is the Onder dog. Yes. Plus one fifty thousand dollars the underdog there knowing the way the game these days. Well, I think given hypersensitivity around both these quarterback. I'm not sure Brady's gonna be forwarded some of the same luxury that we saw with that ticky tack call against the Kansas City Chiefs, which started the drive that ultimately made all the difference in the world there. I really believe that they're gonna try and let these guys play a bit. I don't know if you're going to see the defensive linemen or linebackers take that extra step to lay out a Jared Goff are at Tom Brady is interesting. Plus one fifty I clearly think there's value there suggesting that less than a fifth. I mean better than a fifty fifty chance that there won't be one called significantly better. I would make it about a coin flip proposition similarly to you know, yes, or no want some of these pass interference for various defensive backs that you can find available. So can't argue with your buddies about year ago. I know he'll be rooting for ironed out on the consumer. And maybe take a shot. I'm Tom Brady early on in the first place. There you go considering Brady's last three appearances in the Super Bowl. And how many arts he's thrown for? Are. You surprised at how low his passing yard, total is I. I think bookmakers are kinda back into a corner with Brady this year, given how much the patriots have committed to the ground game. We seem Sony Michelle cake on a big share the workload carrying the football between the tackles Rex Burkhead touched the ball twelve times in the second half that win against Kansas City. And we know what James white can do obviously a much bigger threat catching balls out of the backfield. Then he is running but the patriots have slowed their pace and tempo. They don't play as quickly as we've seen in the past. Now, maybe that'll be different here. Knowing how in the Rams are on the defensive side if they want to speed things up entire out some of the pass rush this number set in the high nineties it's actually touch inflated given Brady seat body of work for the entire season. I'd actually feel more comfortable going over Tom Brady pass attempts in the high thirties and I would his yardage prop. Because I think there's a correlation. I just don't see the big play potential from this. New England office are Vegas insider Todd Firmin's our gas carbon in your co live at twin peaks and upper terrace and a football Friday on ESPN thousand follow Todd on Twitter. He is at top firm and check out his podcast. The bet the board podcast. We'll go out with a bang over under a gronk total receptions, four and a half the over you gotta lay one thirty. Does he go out in style? Everyone loves a good narratives, they love a fairy tale. So they can put him on his horse drawn carriage and let him ride off into the sunset. But when I look at the Rams defense. I know they've struggled against tight end gronk value at this point in the season. For New England is more pronounced in the ground game. In terms of what he means as an extra blocker in the box at four and a half. I would go under on that particular catch number the yardage prop hovering right around fifty and a half. I think is pretty fair. It's about three yards inflated by my numbers. But I think there's a potential that gras could maybe have three catches go over his yardage. But I just don't see him being a focal point for Tom Brady. And what they want to try and do operating in the middle of the field. I feel the game against Kansas City was more an anomaly, then the then what we're going to see regularly given how he limped down the stretch. It's very hard to compare. These eras in the NFL because it is such a pass happy league now. But you know, Bronx gonna make pretty good case here if this is his final game, look he's obviously walking into canton. But a pretty compelling argument that he's the greatest most dominant tight end in the history of the game. And he's basically become like touches said a run blocker. I mean that that's. That tells you the kind of willingness. And just he knows he's not the same. He he's like just an extra run blocker right now. It's amazing and the touchdown. I mean, and that's just a credit to I think the patriots way and the grand scheme of things you guys. So flamboyant and charismatic off the field that he knows when he gets between the lines and he's in the facility buys into what Tom Brady and Bill Belichick expect from everybody that's gonna down those patriot colors. And you look at the percentage I wouldn't gronk on the field as a run blocker twenty nine percent of patriots runs over the last five weeks have gone for five plus yards compared to only seventeen percent when he's not. I don't think that'll be lost on New England whatsoever. When you consider that this Rams defense has shown some vulnerability against the run. Even if they'd been better than the two playoff games holding Ezekiel Elliott, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara large check. It's not our guest live in Vegas on ESPN one thousand only three defensive linemen have ever won Super Bowl MVP Harvey Martin Randy white shared the award and super twelve of course, the sack man, the Colonel Richard dent want it and Super Bowl twenty rainy. White's the only defensive tackle to ever win the award fifty two of these things but at eighteen to one is the best defensive player in the game. Aaron Donald worth a small wager. Well, I can tell you that books have some significant liability going Aaron Donald because he's become the biggest name that in terms bet tickets that we're seeing not at the quarterback position. So books are definitely going to be rooting against Aaron Donald. But for me, I think the New England schemes for him. I don't think you allow Aaron Donald to be the disruptive force and beach you so maybe Dante scar neck is going to double team. And it allows him opportunity for any consumer to live in the backfield. We seen suet is absolute best over maybe over the last few games as disruptive force and knowing his mentality that there's a big payday looming. If he can go out and a big state. I think suicide gonna take the opportunity with Aaron Donald getting all the attention to maybe grab some of the headlines. So I would play contrarian angle here. And maybe look for sue over Aaron Donald if you think of defensive player's gonna win you work markets with you top because he's been saying that all week that all the attention will be paid to Donald and why not take a chance on sue at seventy five to one so market agrees with you. And I know he feels good about the wager. He's made now that you say that has has with all the money coming in on Donald has that number gone down. We have seen some books out here start to shrink that price a little bit. And that's the unfortunate part anytime, you bet into some of the index profit books. No, they're not gonna get balanced action. So the early bird truly gets the worm as it pertains to some of those opportunities that are there. I mean, Donald you could have actually had a twenty five to one before some of the wagering really took off. But we've seen that number like I said come down substantially I've seen some books as low as ten I have to imagine if you're center strip for shops catering more to. Recreational bettors that number will be in the single digits. So if he didn't get there early it's what I tell people all the time. I know you want to put down a few bucks. There's no reason to try and bet Aaron Donald each to one knowing that you could have twenty five to one when his price initially opened. We'll this thing go out to a field goal by Sunday night. Or is it going to hang around two and a half? I think we're gonna see books very reluctant to go to a full field goal. You may see a couple of try and dangle that and immediately we'll take some Rams money. I've been surprised the numbers taken off as much as it has. Now, I know people look at it on the surface and go out three and a half point movies massive book had the luxury of moving through we like to call the dead zone with the Rams anywhere from a one point favorite to pick 'em turning out to New England and a half. There are some books now where if you wanna bet the Rams and take three you have to put up one dollars and twenty cents to make a dollar coming back. I'm not sure we're going to see three flat books that I've spoken to from Dave Mason about online at AG said that the biggest liability they've ever had to a Super Bowl. We'll be going to New England. They've seen a lot of money line action as well. Smoke to Jacor negate from the west gate. Yeah. Yesterday. He said they expect a flood of Rams money..

"What's happening date, not too much happy to be here. Cousin? So I heard you have back issues. You're telling me. Yes. Yes. Prominent back issues, but Broadway jobs on the show. So yeah, that made me feel we have Joe Nemeth coming up. Joe Nemeth is in his seventies. I'm in my late forties. We neither of us have back prom-. This is happening way too early for you guys are better than me. That's what I was getting that also on the line is always my gurus of gambling. My barons abetting. My wizards of wagering. My overlords of the odds. Degenerate trifecta, Harry brother Brian Darren the parlay kid. What's up fellas? What's going on sale happening? What's going on buddy? In addition to Tate's back issues. It's been it's been a comically rough few days specifically for me. I don't even know where we should start for for all of us. I think we could start. Friday night. We lost the iheartradio ward for best sports podcast. How're you? I wasn't even watching you got us into it. I think you tweeted the the link to the live feed and everything and we lost to the football insiders or football outsiders of the insiders are outs fantasy guys something aren't them. Inside insider out. I don't know. It was it was a brutal ninety minutes. Brian was checking it out to a little bit too of mistakes dead air. But like I told Brian to at least we had the two best of labs announcers, a now Dr ward wooden went to iron, Mike Tyson aceites later. I saved it for next the next to last biggest award because of that. And we lost by three votes. I read about today lost by only three votes. You would think tank now. Voted twice votes. Harry, Harry, you could've voted. The more vote once. Determined rely boss to help you out here. But so we lost that congratulations to defy. They seem like nice enough guys. But I see how this works. I'm offering to present next year. If that helps any wink, wink, and we'll be back on top next year. Right guys. Just we could do sure. Sure. All right. So okay. So that that was Friday night. I think okay, Saturday wasn't too bad. I don't think but Sunday now I purchased this for those of you not following. I can't imagine. If you having clay Travis, and I bought a ticket for fifty seven thousand five hundred dollars on prop swamp. You could go to prop swamp. It's kind of like the EBay of prop bet tickets. Okay. So this one guy put eight thousand dollars on the saints back last February at twenty two one he was going to collect one hundred sixty thousand plus his eight thousand he sold the ticket on props wop to us for fifty seven five. I know these are ridiculous numbers. Believe me, I've been crying every day driving to work to use in my eyes would be less ridiculous. If Todd Firmin from lock it in our co host would have not reneged on the deal and just left it up to me in clay. But he did. So we had a split it. And you all know how that went one of the worst non calls if not the worst non call in the history of football. And I'm on the. Losing end of it. Then what happened on this so much at oh, I got a parking ticket? I know you got a parking ticket. Right. I got one for fifty three dollars seventy five you got yours for seventy five. Okay.

She twisted her ankle up five three. Well, when she twisted it was in five three five two she. Well, the crazy thing is she had that foot-fault.

"My friends about online dot AG sent some of these numbers over saints would be one and a half point favorite against the chiefs over under unnec game would be set at sixty. If we saw the chiefs and Rams that over under would be set at sixty two and a half. And we see that number open at a pick em if you look at the patriots in saints the saints would be two point favorite in that matchup over under fifty seven. And when we look at the potential for a Rams patriots rematch from years ago that number would open at a pick em, and we would see a total. They're set at fifty seven. So automakers have a pretty straightforward here. No home field advantage. They're not favored by more than two points as it stands right now. And all the toys. Anywhere from fifty six and a half fifty seven and a low end up to sixty two and a half on the top for from a gambler's perspective. Anything you like in those first four. Are you rooting from that chip because you think you can expose something. Honestly, I don't have any dog in the fight here. And so for me I love to see greatness personified. And so if I can see one more Super Bowl with Tom Brady matchup against the likes of drew Brees. I think we're gonna have plenty of opportunity for golf in my home somewhere down the road. So I'd like to see the two old hands north of forty years old go toe to toe so many people have grown sick and tired of seeing the patriots on the biggest stage. But that's the match for me. This most intriguing the one team. I'll be honest. I really don't wanna see of the four the Rams just don't do it for me from an intrigue standpoint. So anyone who comes out of the AFC? I'd love to see the saints have a shot. And maybe if you're a breeze wins his second Super Bowl forty years of age. We see him right out on top. All right. How about a futures play on Super Bowl? Fifty four are bears are anywhere between ten to one in twelve to one is that value from your? Perspective. It's so tough to try and make a case for some of these futures now until you see the actual schedule layout. I know we know the list of opponents so that changes some, but it can no one for the bears. No, I think they're schedule gets that much more difficult when you talk about finishing first in the division. If I go through and try and look at some of the numbers, I didn't get team that's flying under the radar as over hyped as they were coming into this season. I think they're under hype going into next season would be the San Francisco forty Niners another year, Shannon. If you get Jimmy Garoppolo healthy that's a defense. I saw take major strides you go out there, and you get an elite defensive lineman somehow in the draft. I think the Niners become a team that you're not gonna wanna sleep out in the NFC, and they have a chance to make the same. Kind of a scent bears did this year next season. Maybe if Jerry Rice's, right and Antonio Brown lands in San Francisco that makes it even bigger for you. It does change the dynamic quite a bit. Although sometimes you have to pick your poison, and I wonder about the chemistry that he could potentially disrupt in the locker room. I like what I actually saw from their receiving corps late in the season. I think Dante Pettis a rising star marquees Goodwin when he's out there capable of taking a lid off of the defense and their ground game when they're healthier. They're with jerick. Mckinnon I think that's a forty Niners offense. It's gonna sneak up on people early in two thousand eighteen nineteen Todd finally was nineteen twenty. Yeah. Yeah. Finally, we're on Machado Harper watch. Still the Harper cubs thing is totally gone. The Machado watch on the south side is strong. Is there any value on on gambling on the White Sox to land Machado? Well, I haven't actually seen updated prices there. But I can't tell you. There's a lot of money as far as speculation is concerned on their win total. We saw the White Sox open at seventy four and a half that number is now out to seventy seven you figure Machado just with his offense of productivity. Anchoring the middle of the lineup would only help in a division that I think can take a step back, especially Cleveland, alternately moves Corey kluber as far as the cubs win total though we go from eighty nine and a half to ninety one and a half nine questions about the bullpen crazy to think though guys when you look at Machado and the deal that's on the table from the White Sox. We were talking about him and Bryce Harper potentially commanding three hundred million. They don't even have a two in front of that nine figure contract that they're lowering crazy Todd great work as always we appreciate it. We'll be listening tomorrow and Carmen in your Cup. Always a pleasure. Johnson joined the games this weekend. Todd Firmin's awesome. And what he does out in Vegas, and you can hear him tomorrow and Carmen and Euroco and now's your chance to win.

It was a very well put together prize package at John. Okay. We'll go over that in just a little bit. So do you know which way you're going in both these games? Yeah. You do. Okay. Definitely. I mean is Thursday, man. I have already come to. I came to my conclusion on Tuesday. You love the you love love love the saints. Right. Is I love loved loved three or four loves may be a bit too much. But I just don't I don't what is it three and a half is going to be that's tough. I mean, I've seen it like today. Mark potash emailed me for the sun times picks. He gave us a line at three. So like what would happen? Name was just saying it's ranges from three to three and a half. Yeah. I'm definitely I would definitely play the saints. Even if it was three and a half. I I'd play them up to four. And I would just what have you shocked if the chiefs one at home now, but I'm I'm just going to ride with the veteran experience, then Carmen summed it up pretty well. How often do you ever get points with Tom Brady? Never. Yeah. You don't have any people have gone poor betting against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick probably a bunch. I don't know the exact on you. I would say a lot of you consistently betting against the patriots Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. My guess is you may have some financial issues. Yes. Some good stuff coming up tomorrow. As we preview those games too right now what we do on Thursdays us around four forty five is where commercial free the entire four o'clock hour. It's gusher crash. Gosh. What is it?

"Let's see. How do you see college players sitting up? We'll games affecting bowls in the future in combination with the college playoff expanding to eight the coming years. Do you see the lesser bowls dying to diminish participant perception and therefore losing sponsors? Got a good question. Yeah. There's like I said it talking about the Missouri thing there's this thing. And I don't I don't know if I like if I could like delve into the psychology of it. I think it's because for some people bowls mean the world I'm talking about fans. And then therefore it pisses them off when other people don't share their excitement, which is like I'm like, I'm excited for the av ns. But I know like there's no one else in my social circle who's excited for the fans. There's probably no enlisting to this excited for the VN's. My wife is not excited for the fans. I'm excited for the ns then people shaming me for liking the sex awards. Does not dampened my enthusiasm for the fans. I don't care. So if you really got into the liberty bowl. And then somebody goes, I don't fuck it. Like Stingray was texting me. So what do you think? And if you go into the game, do you wanna do a post game show? I'm like, no, I don't really I don't really care. I don't know. What to tell you? You know? I mean, I, but I know if you live in the south bowl seasons accused deal, and then some very fans go see. That's the problem. It's a loser meant to Emily. I don't know. What to tell you that? If you think that that's the reason why Missouri football hasn't achieved greatness than okay? It's a fascinating perspective. But if that's your line of thought to focus on holding fans accountable for not going to bowl games, you know. Great. Maybe you're right. I personally think it's not accurate. But maybe that's correct. So is the I think what will happen. I certainly think it's the solution with five conference champions, and then three at large teams becoming the college football playoff. And then seeded by the committee, and that will be it. And I think that will be at for a long time using the bowls as the quarterfinals and the semi finals and a rotation for the championship game location that now you have an objective way to get in. And you still have the debate that makes college football. So unique whether you like it or not certainly is different that you're sitting there going will Notre Dame shouldn't have gotten in Georgia should've gotten in or UCF. Okay, UCF loss. Well, Georgia should've gotten in the Georgia loses. Well, still Notre Dame shouldn't have been in. It's like, well, it's results oriented. So here's how the process works. You play your games. You went all your games and you've playing in one of the big programs like Notre Dame you're going to get in. And personally like I said back in October. I thought UCF should have gotten if you win all. Of your games. But I also recognize the argument. Well, they didn't play anybody. People say Notre Dame to play Notre Dame beat Michigan today. One at Virginia Tech Notre Dame won at USC. I don't know what people want they want. What fits their narrative? If you're SEC guy, you say Georgia should get in. If you don't necessarily like Notre Dame. You say Notre Dame shouldn't have gotten. And then you see them get beat up by Clemson. And you'll see the proves it. Well, like two weeks ago, Missouri fans Purdue is one of our best wins Purdue gets the shit kicked out of them against Auburn while. Okay, fine it and it just changes based on the phantom. It's like talking politics. It's such a it's it's a very frustrating discussion. I cited Todd Firmin's Twitter timeline. The sports gambling. I always out on the show. I liked quite a bit..

You can use the hashtag ask field car. We'll have JD later, and we also have taught firm and at one in big you also kill three birds with one stone out here. They've got a bunch of places up and down Legrand avenue where you can go Christmas shopping. You can pick everything up for the lady for the mistress. For everybody all list, you get everything covered pretty pretty much. Have. You're not kidding. They have pretty much every shop every store up and down from here. All the way to like Sandberg highschool, basically, that's what about probably a four mile stretch. You think to Sandberg? I'd say about a former five mile stretch thirty two block stretch. There's everything you could find furniture, like grocery up, close sports, jewelry, pillars everything. Vitamin shoppe. Drive down the road. It is amazing. You got every store you're looking for. So just on your way. Stop if you it come see us left and right. Stop by. And pick up some wings, wings and cold bear, man and get the bacon. Oh, it's right in front of me. Go ahead and buy once we get to break, I'm going to have some I think you as anyone teeth. You can save the peace and a half. So let's say a peace and a half. Happy Friday everybody. The the sun is shining, which is nice because it is kinda cold outside. It's it's frigid frigid on Sunday. It's good for the bears probably gonna start at thirty. And it's going to get down to twenty one. By the end of the game. You know me. I'm not a big believer in bear weather. I think it's mostly a myth, you know, sometimes it's played into their favor. But a lot of times that we've seen teams come in here dome. Teams cold weather teams and beat the snot warm weather teams and beat the snot out of the beer. It's got to be really cold for it to have an effect. You know, the last time. Degrees when they played Tony Romo in the in the Cowboys fears go remember, I don't think they wanted to be here that night. We'll some teams don't like that the LA raiders when they're in L A didn't want to be in Green Bay in the middle of December. They don't wanna be in buffalo in December either trust me. But then I also remember a December game maybe late November early December many many years ago when the bears hosted the colts, and it was it was a day game at noon game. But I mean, it was one of those like ridiculously cold December thirteen to grain rice fridge Peyton Manning and James came in here. And I mean edge ran for one hundred seventy yards of something ridiculous. I always think the weather game. That's hardest is like buffalo gone going down to Miami. Yeah. If it's eighty five buffalo going to Miami and playing at seventy not really as bad. But if it's eighty five down there those buffalo players going to end up melting on the field. Well, could be the game of the week in the NFL bears and Rams on Sunday night football. I love the Sunday night games. Because it allows you to kind of sit around and veg and watch all the. The other action and you get the bears all by themselves and in primetime with everybody watching and you get the focus in on it a little bit more. Let's hope they either perform good show either. They're going to perform they're going to crap the bed. Hopefully, they performed I guess is. They performed look they perform well against the Vikings. This is a better team. They're going to face. But think about the way they came out with so much purpose in that Vikings game. They got out to an early lead. They executed their offense to near perfection. Really buzzing in the early part of that Sunday night game if you weeks ago against the Vikings, and maybe they can do something similar one thing we've seen about this team weekend and week out for the most part, especially with Mitchell coming back is that they're prepared to start games that Nagy does a good job of scripting and scheming early on. They've put Mitch in sort of favorable scenarios and situations and they've done well early in games. They really have. And you're going to have to do that to come out and stay in this game against the team. You're facing on Sunday night. Let's face it. Good start. Always a key. Right. Well, that's that's especially against this team is pretty good offensively against what happened last week was a nightmare. Start. You found a way to recover. You're still had yourself lead going into halftime. Even though you pedalled away the final handful of second in that by calling the timeout allowed themselves to get a couple of plays put themselves in position. But what you're going to have the crowd behind you so much different. All the bears were five and one at home this year. Yeah. I you say when you're home games split on the road. You got yourself in eleven win season right Caesar when you're home games split on the road. Four eight knows pretty awesome. It I mean, what did you guys realistically wanna do? Like, no worse. Seven one six is worse than sixty two one eight knows top to run. You never ran good teams. You guys sort of had the macho we should be no worse than sixth. And you look at him. I mean, we used to be the difference was we were six to seven one at home. The problem was where to five on the road to section six. So you get to nine wins that way that's no good, right or three and five. So the team that really controls the whole and that could split on the road. And that really is what New England does what those teams have finished twelve and four every single year. You take a look at him and went seven one they lost three games on the road. They do well on the road. Yeah. So you're at home. Now, you home court. You've got hold Serb. And I think the bears going to try to find a way to go ahead and hold surp-. They've got one defensive player on the team that's really dominant Aaron Donald he's the guy that you're going to have to focus Chinese you're going to have to watch. He's probably going to line up against the two weakest offensive lineman. You're TS here. You're right. And he's done most of his work over the left guard this year, and everybody's James Daniels James Daniels, that's going to get a mouthful of Aaron Donald and let me tell you. I hope you could answer the bell. Because it's going to be a tough test form get ready and will break down a little bit more on what they can do to maybe help him inside their inside our goal break. Some of that down. Maybe we'll do it during his keys. The Twitter went nuts. Couple of days ago. We joked about this yesterday. How about Sean McVay being able to rattle off the eleven bears defensive starters? I've never seen anything so ridiculous, quite frankly, a head coach in the National Football League is being praised to having some sort of amazing attention to detail are identical memory because he can list. His opponents eleven starters every coach in this league can name the opposing twenty two starters the week. They're playing a team every single one of them. If you can't you shouldn't be coaching in the NFL. That's not what makes Sean McVay. Great. I it was stunning and by offensive coordinators can name every defense players and the other team and my defense coordinator can name every offense. It's so silly. And I'm glad that at least people finally started making the point on Twitter, and I did myself last night at one point. I couldn't stand it anymore. I enough with praising Sean McVay for knowing the bears eleven starters the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Of course, he knows. There are eleven starters. He could probably name forty guys on their team. That's his job this way. Did you hear wait Phillips now? So this way Phillips yesterday talking about the bears offense. All right. Chicago. Robinson? Gabriel miller. Burdens a tight end. Tackles are massing Leno. Guards are Weisman Daniels. The senators where it her quarterbacks Kerensky and backup quarterbacks. Running backs are Howard and Cohen. So got that cleared. Space to. Laughing the whole time. It was hilarious, and Ed he bought Trubisky Daniels. But he got the idea knows who they are. I love it. Yeah. We're venzke. I think the whole point of he's laughing because people had the reaction to it. It's not a knock against Nagy. Of course. Mcveigh did not get the people that thinking, Sean McVay. He knows the eleventh. One hundred percent, correct. What in the world is happened? I believe the last forty eight hours at the reaction to that. It's the dumbest thing I've ever seen. Well, that's get. Oh, my see usually people stupidity was under guard. Nobody ever knew how stupid people were why? Right because they didn't have an outlet to show you how stupid they were maybe here. Right. You know used to be Sean McVay knows all eleven players on the bears defense. It's amazing people used to live in privacy with their dumbness. Now. Everybody gets to find out because you got social media. I get us your fantasy questions playoffs. Playoffs. Have started in most leagues week fourteen means playoffs. Fourteen fifty four for me. One of three for me. Yeah. Tough man middle injuries. Hurt us in the Waddle and Silvy six is why I found myself the league is eight and five I made the playoffs. All right.

"New pepper, Jack. She's spread the world's first and only spreadable pepper. Jack cheese. There is nothing else. Like it. How was thanksgiving? Over here. I try and take advantage yoga you hours outside of this time of year. But as you know football reach free and not being a fan of probably wasn't nearly as exciting as it was forever. Chicago watching them go out there and got outta victory. And only fifty six hours of rest, or whatever it was it went they cover every week. Now Todd is favourite says not too long ago. They never covered these games. But they they've been automatic the last month. What's the line going to look like next week against the giants on the road? I think we're gonna see a bears team. Come in over a field goal favoring that particular spot. Now so much is going to hinge on the giants performance this coming weekend against Philadelphia Eagles could be down their entire secondary. So with that being the case, he makes it the number suppressed, although I would be surprised she bears open to that three and a half four range something that we apparently growing real accustomed to this year. We'll see how they handle prosperity. Of course, the big question. Will it be chased annual Willoughby? Mitchell Trubisky back under center does that matter. Much has Vegas. Goes to set the line. Does not. And I think you saw that yesterday that dumper open four four and a half. It was back out a little bit number got down to three ruled out oddsmakers moved to number two one and a half two and immediately professional better said, we don't care that much. It's a system based more than anything else. And as you saw the bears defense that got them to the window for the second straight week pick six ultimately making the difference and not just winning but covering as well. Enter division dog. You look at it the Packers. I thought it was a home dog. But they're up in Minnesota in Minnesota. Vikings favored by three the Packers in a must-win. So both teams and must win situations. But Mike McCarthy fighting for his life with direction you're going into what? For me, your go. I break this game down and I have zero confidence in the Packers at this point in the season. Now, this'll be the largest we've seen in this rivalry going all the way back in November twenty third two thousand fourteen all but when I look at the Vikings are getting healthier defensively Anthony Barr full participant in Wednesday's practice. And despite them losing the game in Chicago that nothing that you would aside from extending drives on third down. So Minnesota's able to try and get a ground game on track. I think it will open up against a very banged up. Packers defense general public sees Green Bay catching points, and they believe it's too good to be true. I'm very different mindset here. I think he laid through Minnesota as they continue to protect fifteen and six against the spread the last twenty one games. They played in the twin city. What are the bears Super Bowl odds? Look like right now. They've come down considerably if you shop around being public team, you're not gonna find the best is the number Vegas. I seen books is lowest twenty two work offshore world before the game against the lions. You could've found twenty five twenty teashop going be curious to see how things shake out the best case scenario my opinion, the bears are three seat which would ultimately mean going on the road have to take on the Rams or the saints. I don't car we've traded texts on it that game Sunday night. Football bears will be short home underdog against the Rams if things project right now, but the cold, weather and everything else wouldn't shock me. At all. If the bears were able to win that football game and really put pressure on the Rams to play for that to spot spotting who's the favorite right now. By the way, the saints the favorite for the Super Bowl or the Rams and the chiefs who is it. The saints have moved into this favorite roles. The highest that you could have had Deva's able with eighteen to warn after they lost the opener against Tampa massive favorites right now never price right around two to watch. But kind of all bunched together chiefs Rams right there. But the saints after last night, and now I've covered nine football games in a row book starting to get real sick of seeing that black paying out those unbelievable. We'll get to Michigan Ohio state and a few. Let's just kind of go in chronological order here and start with tonight. Got a couple of big games that could still decide some things. I mean, these teams that need help Todd's college, football wise, but a couple of big things happening tonight. Let's start with Oklahoma West Virginia Oklahoma going on the road is a small favourite and Kyla Murray. Maybe one last big game here where he could really put some ideas into the minds of Heisman voters. Maybe it's a runaway for two. I don't know. But what do you expect out of Cuyler tonight and the Sooners on the road? We have definitely seen him bridge the gap. And I don't think it's because anything to is done is because Tyler has to go out there and score fifty a game with this Oklahoma defense right now that is a hundred twenty eight in the country in terms of red zone d ninety fifth in the country in defensive efficiency. But you look at this total. And that's I think the best story line here. Number opened at eight. Eighty to eighty four and there was a professional better than what you know, what this numbers too big. They bet it down eighty two and a half it hasn't stopped. There's some shops that have this total with eighty seven. Now, it's going to be nice weather. They're not sure which of these defensively will get stopped just need so many things to go. Right. But I look at this game and trying to figure out if I can make a case for the home underdog. It's gotta be west Virginia's defense were there in the current. When you look at overall, they force turnovers. Oklahoma doesn't do anything close to that. Though. I biggest fears that will Greer they go through laws, and if this offense goes through laws against Oklahoma here. Things are going to snowball quickly talker. Some folks that are out there. They set the environment. Not nearly as electric as it would have been at West Virginia held on against Oklahoma state last week. I'll make a case for laying the points at the favorite Oklahoma, minus two and a half think their defense will get one more stop in the mountaineers have on the apple Cup winner goes on to play in the Pac twelve championship game. Washington state's been a great story Menchu's been unbelievable. Do do. The huskies have enough of a pass rush, quite frankly were they'll be able to slow down that offense tonight. I'm gonna be very curious to see because this Washington defense cry from some of the past we've packing finches we've seen from Chris Peterson and company you look it over the last five years the closest margin of victory for Washington was and that came back in two thousand thirteen the last four meeting eighteen points, more Washington sports, thirty one plus an they've held hooters to seventeen or less. We can go all the way back in nineteen ninety. This is only the eighth time that Washington state enters the apple Cup favorites. And you can arguably make a case there's the most on the line since nineteen ninety seven were Ryan leaf was able to get the win against Washington Gardner. Mitch shot gonna have a little bit more time. I think than any Washington state quarterback seen in the past. My biggest concern is defensively. Jake Browning had a ton of success picking a party scoop. Your defense is they've been able to run the ball. But despite professional money coming in Washington. I would lead towards Washington state. But I really believe this is one of the toughest games of the weekend the handicapped because I feel it's a massive coaching mismatch going towards the huskies. Todd Firmin's our guest at tot from it on Twitter about the board podcasts Carmen in York on ESPN one thousand I let's get to the big one tomorrow unfamiliar territory here for urban Meyer and Ohio State home underdogs more than a fueled goal underdog against Michigan is this finally the your Harbaugh gets done if he doesn't get it done tomorrow. I'm not sure Michigan elaborate over the last fourteen meetings. Michigan h read full one thirteen and Caribbean. Mentioned urban Meyer uncharted territory, a home underdog more than feel this'll bring the nation's longest streak of being favored in Ohio State to a screeching halt. It's been fifty two games since we saw them as an underdog. Now. What's interesting about this Ohio State defense very vulnerable to explosive run? Michigan doesn't do things the same way that Maryland does with athletes getting to the edge. They wanna beat you up in the trenches. They wanna try and wear you down and with a little bit of weather here. I think that'll plate in Michigan's favor. They can. Make Ohio State slightly one dimensional, but you're not stealing anything lean four and a half five with a team that really struggle to get through high states. So for me the number spot. There isn't any I wanna capable come back to the dole. As far as best bets are concerned. Not much else other than I guess pride in the iron bowl can Auburn. Keep it close against Alabama. I don't think Auburn has any chance to really keep this game competitive. We look at Alabama. And the last time they faced an option offense the week before going into an iron bowl. They struggled against Georgia Southern and then came out and beat Auburn by twenty eight point forty two to fourteen I think we could see more of the same here. Alabama had their wakeup call. We just hit the rewind button and watching Auburn offense. They get nothing in Athens against Georgia. Maybe it's fourteen points here, but I think Alabama scores north of forty away or don't play type scenario, and I couldn't argue at all either if you wanted to lay working with Alabama in the first half, I think they get out to a quick start enforce Auburn a place with mine. All right. I like that. What about Notre Dame? USC? This is this is it for Notre Dame here, obviously a win. And they're going to be in the playoff USC is just been miserable. Is this another ladder? Don't play it. This is a buyer beware situation. I wanna make a case for Notre Dame laying a lumber here because I think US will play with a little bit of fried. Not only the Trojans would they love to spoil the baby. Scheme to be boiled. Otherwise, we're talking about them being home for the holiday, which is kinda surprising when you hit the, you know the way back, but and they beat Washington state on a Friday night. I thought clay was getting things going but spoke to folks offshore Dave Mason from bet online that he said this'll be the single largest decision for them of the college football regular season. They can't find any USC money anywhere. You guys know as well as I do, and that seems to be the recipe I'd rather put myself on the side of the house. But even I don't think I ever stomach for SE here unless I was able to get fourteen, but I definitely can't advocate laying a lumber with Notre Dame knowing how much online for the fighting Irish, no, they need some style points. So I don't think they do. But maybe they think they need some style points. That's what you know. You wonder will they go out there really try to take to USC in this game? We'll see. Yeah. I mean, I would be stunned. I can't see any scenario in college football, where Notre Dame going aren't defeated given the strength of the brand. And the pedigree of the program would be on the outside looking into the playoffs. Yeah. I mean, we see things in the past. And I think if you're a fan of chaos, nothing more than the Alabama Auburn convincingly, Georgia hold serve Georgia being Auburn in the SEC championship that would be the only scenario wrenching. But I really believe it would be a one loss big ten champion. Whether it's Ohio State or Michigan. That would be on the outside looking in before the Irish, let's say mission. Well, let's just take the winter. The Michigan Ohio state game whichever team..

"We're celebrating the forty year anniversary for everybody there. It'd be pretty great pairs come out of by Todd. They go down to Miami goes talked about the difficulty. Sometimes for northern teams this time of year to get down in the heat and humidity. And it'll be plenty hot and humid. But I don't think this dolphins team is very good. They've been outgained in four straight a lot of money coming in on the bears. Are they decide I think this number has gotten a little bit out of control guys? Miami would have been a one point favorite had this game been played last week in. But of course, we see the dolphins unravel much to my chagrin and the listeners who had the dolphin plus six last weekend thought we were gonna good spot going into the fourth quarter, but Miami is gonna get Laremy Tunsil back on their left side of their line. And that was much different football team to the first three quarters of 'em out. There. You mentioned the heat the humidity the bears going from forty degree temperatures into the high eighties. We're not quite sure how that wear them down this game goes on. And when you talk about the overcome. Compensation or number. The last time we saw the bears they own forty Tampa going to be much more difficult on the road. I'm not going to say the bears or lose this game. But the idea of laying over a field goal and buying in the top of the market rather scary. I think we're gonna see some by back on the dolphins. Closer to kick off. Is there have been some sharp money on the under in this game two? There had been a good amount of money on the a lot of that knowing that the bear strength is obviously on their defense. And you look at this Miami team so limited from a weaponry standpoint that even with the heat and the potential for the bears to wear down late. There's just not a lot of confidence in either one of these teams is going to have a lot of success getting twenty points. You wisely warned all of our listeners a last week that thought about maybe taking enrolling with some of that lane stadium Blacksburg Saturday night magic wisely said stay away. Notre Dame's too good right now. They're at home against pit. And a lot of the trends in the leans with say pits the side here. But I don't know if anybody should be betting against Notre Dame right now. What are you? Think about the Notre Dame pit game. I'm right there. Ricky Carmi actually made this game eighteen there's a little bit of value in Pittsburgh. But when I watched Notre Dame right now, this is a team that has the ability to play downhill, and it's something we have seen the last couple of seasons that they have playmakers in space. They have that the running back and even if they're looking at trion grind out games late. They may be able to score. We saw seventeen sixteen game last week against Virginia Tech really blow up giving a credit to Notre Dame and some of their game prep in depth late in the game. I look at Pittsburgh. And while they wanna try and run the football. I've seen enough of them when they go on the road and that offense really bogged down no greater illustration when they were two touchdown underdogs against UCF and never really mustard and attack letdown spot potentially for Notre Dame. But I really believe he's fighting Irish your for big things here. I don't want to step in front of the freight train. Even though the numbers a little bit inflated can't City Chiefs Sunday night head out to New England. It's three and a half New England looks like they've got some of their weapons back, and it looks like they're gonna find a way to be productive. I know three and a half of one of your key numbers. I wanna go ahead and put a shekel or two down on New England. I think that's the only way to look in this game. And when you. Factor in the Bill Belichick undefeated twenty three and I believe facing quarterbacks under the age of twenty five it's a credit to what they've been able to defensively from a scheme standpoint. I do worry. The New England doesn't have a ton of speed in their back seven, which is a problem when you go up against Kansas City but last week against Jacksonville despite the cheese winning neck three to fourteen they kept Patrick Mahomes in a pocket and limited some of his improvisational skills. Getting out to the edge extending plays and trying to hit the home run New England their weapons are all healthy. No, I look at this offense against Kansas City defense on pace to be the worst ever in the NFL along four hundred eighty one yards per game. They're down a couple of key cogs. Justin Houston expected to miss. We could see Defoe Ford a little bit limited. And if Kansas City can't bring pressure, and they can't stop the run. So he Michelle should have be big day. I think New England reminds us all why they should still be considered front runners in the AFC pretty impressive record against those young quarterbacks. Todd Firmin's are Vegas insider or gambling expert. He is at Todd firm and on Twitter joins Carmen and your Cohen ESPN one thousand. And ESPN Chicago dot com. I'm guessing when the oddsmakers looked at six charges Browns. And I know it's breakfast football for the chargers. But I'm guessing they didn't make that game. A pick em is some some value here on the chargers or are the Browns pretty legitimate right now. And should we not be betting against Baker Mayfield? You know, what guy who's been interesting to watch the money coming on this game. You initially saw some support for the chargers as road favorites. And then he saw a little bit of resistance. What are the sharper angles that? I've seen explored in this game is actually betting Cleveland in the first half thinking can capitalize on the chargers while they start to get their bearing. Of course, Los Angeles won't return home after this had further east to London for a game against the Tennessee titans next weekend. You look at this chargers offensive line. And there are a little bit banged up. Barksdale gonna get ruled out still a little bit nicked up at other positions as well. Fortunately for them last week against the raiders Oakland. Can't bring pressure much different story here with the Cleveland defense doesn't get enough credit for this team's resurgence Baker gets all the headlines, but the defense is where they're doing a lot of the heavy lifting. I actually think Cleveland for the first half does make a lot of sense. And surprisingly enough guys. We actually saw some over money come into the market this morning. I'm not sure I necessarily agree with that. This feels like a twenty four twenty one type of ball game to me forty five and a half right now. How 'bout the Steelers Bengals game? It's. Big one this week. I'm in the Bengals offense has been one of the big surprises of the season. Todd do the good Steelers show up in cover the small number here. There are about one and a half or two point underdog a little bit of money on Pittsburgh early on number never got to the key point price point of three. So we got two and a half and some betters. What the heck with it's not gonna get their started coming on a Steelers, and as you mentioned one and a half one. I wouldn't be shocked at all at this game closes closer to pick him. And you mentioned the Bengals some of the success. They've had offensively. Andy Dalton got off to a hot start. But over the last couple of games six touchdown interception ratio without Tyler I for just passing game loses a little bit of its teeth but to their credit dad AG green lined up in the slot. And he is a match up nightmare. I look at Pittsburgh. And this is a team that leads the league in sacks. I think they'll be able to put pressure on Andy Dalton Big Ben and his career matched up against the Bengals eleven and three. And when he goes to a high we seem to play his best football looks for James Connor to feature prominently in the Steelers offense. I actually think Pittsburgh goes on the road and get the big win. ESE north Pac ten football doesn't necessarily excite me. But Viking Scott wants to know if you've got an angle on Washington, Oregon number suggests Washington is one hundred percent decide here hasn't every time. The number trends towards Washington only, a three point favorite you see professional support for the huskies. They've dominated each of the last two meetings to the tune of a hundred and eight to twenty four after they had lost twelve straight to their bitter rivals. Chris Peterson gets a major coaching edge. Even though Oregon comes in off the bye look for miles. Gas can have a big day. The only way I think Oregon can win this game or even cover the number. If Justin Herbert is absolutely perfect puts a lot of stress on the guy who I think ultimately becomes the number one pick. I like Washington I like this game under the total out there. Too often stadium LSU alive dog at all at home against Georgia. I think it's a dog with fleas honestly com. They were exposed a little bit each of the last two weeks giving up three hundred sixty plus rushing yards. And why I know the final score against Florida misleading with that late pick six which I'm sure sent under betters to their local city. Dogs and churches to try and pray for forgiveness from the gambling. Got you look at the way this LSU team is constructed and Joe borough has to protect the football this'll be one of the better defenses. He plays. Well, Georgia's still isn't quite battle-tested. The players have come out, and they said the right thing they know this is the second season if they want to get to the college football playoff. It starts with a trip to Baton Rouge. The first few thousand eight everyone who wants to back LSU, I think it'll be disappointed by halftime Georgia really is that good. I give us the best replace of the weekend. But not exactly the way we wanted to go last weekend. We'll have one in the NFL and Olea snowstorm in Denver with the Broncos catching seven it was only a few weeks ago gents where Kansas City closed the three and a half point favorite. I don't think the Rams very full field goal. Plus better than the Rams exceeding. The Rams that much better than Kim city on a neutral right now Denver they bounced back a little bit and take this game down to the wire. And well, these two games in the big ten aren't the best of the number. I'm fully on board with this line movement towards Nebraska Adrian Martinez, any Kathy big day. Both western hasn't been able to run the football. And that's how you attack the Cornhuskers. We know Nebraska fans will travel. Well, it won't be much of a home field. If any in Evanston and Michigan all the injuries to Wisconsin. I think too much to overcome you could've laid seven earlier in the week. So hopefully, folks check out the bet the board podcast on Wednesday. But even can I think there's still some value. This is the kind of game Michigan has had circled. They know they got off track last year when they lost twenty four ten in the badgers. And I think they win this game by north of two touchdowns. This could be one of the signature performances for Michigan. So far in two thousand eighteen the they've been trending in a better direction..

"It's it's it's a really good point. It is I get I I mean, look, I acknowledge all of the wonderful things they've done. But it doesn't mean I just going to cast a blind eye on some of the others. Strategical decisions are strategic decisions that are made leave you scratching your head at times Daniels in Fort Worth. I've heard this what he's going to bring up to on on from some cubs fans. Daniel you're on ESPN one thousand what's up. Not much. Yeah. I think so man worried about Sunday because he's not going to page Montgomery on the final day. If we need the web good Todd. He didn't saw four pitcher on the starting staff at this time. Because today in rigs hamels then Qatada because he probably saving him for the final day of the year. We be the win a fair statement. Yeah. Thanks daniel. I that's why I asked I didn't hear what Joe had to say. After the game. I'm sure somebody asked why would you pull container after seventy four pitches in five innings of the four run lead? And then people have also said that like that's the first I've heard someone say that naming Montgomery gets replaced by container. People have said that if they have to play on Monday in the playoff game against the brewers for the division if they tie, and there's a good chance they could be died that can Tana has been the guy who has dominated the brewers. Right. His numbers against the birds. But again, I think you get into trouble when you start saving people for tomorrow. Do you know what I mean? Yeah. Remember Lou did that with Zambrano for game four or five of that series against their Zona that never happened. Like you gotta live for today. Don't you? Yes. I totally agree. And in Addison, you're on ESPN one thousand which Patty. Hey, guys love the show. Thank you. I think Joe is playing numbers game with Kim tunnel space in the order three times through. And I think he's got to stop doing that once in a while. All you gotta go out of pitching. I I guess he got it. Hardly anything before. That's why they took them out. And but I would've I would've had Cassano stay in bonds with second and third. Got. Thank you. I'd he's pitched five innings exactly in each of his last three. He did it out of damage. I was at the fourth when he threw out the remember they tried to bunt. And he was able to get the force at third. I think it was to sorta stop their rally. The Joe answer the question. I mean, did we hear an answer from Joe as to why he decided to pull cantata again navy? That was as the caller from Texas said, maybe it's in his mind that he's got to save him for for the final game of the season. If it's important, maybe can Tana was telling him feel great. I mean, I don't know what the answer was. We'll look to see if we have the sound or look for the quote Alfonzo in Orland park. You're on ESPN one thousand what's going on Alphonso. What's going on guys? So first off die-hard cubs fan for thirty thirty five forty years and just like every San I'm appreciative of what Joe did and obviously breaking the curse, but I haven't got over and I lost so much trust since what happened in game six and game seven that. I am. Questioning and wondering are we winning in spite of him, and the the names that I can think of our Phil Jackson Glenville and Mike Ditka. We all love. Mike ditka. But he only got us one. And we know that that team was capable of possibly two or three. So my fear is that Joe is possibly hindering that opportunity for us. And again, we all love them, and we're appreciative. But I have not been able to get over the questions of game six and seven because every single thing that he is doing just doesn't seem to be in line with what common sense tells you to do. So what are your thoughts? Is he gonna be the one one shot wonder like, Mike Ditka? It's interesting. I was I did Dan dockage show. He was in our studio today because he went to the Cup game last night. He does show on ESPN in Indianapolis. And he asked me 'cause he loves Joe, man. He asked me what are our callers talking about? Because he he was suggesting that some of his listeners that are. Cubs fans were have been upset with some of the decisions that Joe's may. And I said to him as it, look it's more of a you can hear the drum beating more now than several years ago. I think we we've always talked about the culture that he is set and why you know, how they don't win a World Series title without him. But by the same token, there are a lot of instances the die-hard cubs fans point to whether it's Pedro stroke pitching or going to the plate in Washington. It's two thousand sixteen with the closer situation. Comrie pitcher getting pulled after four I mean lackey last year in the postseason, right? I mean, so there are a lot of tactical decisions that have been made that don't sit. Well with a lot of cub fan. Yeah. Mainly not just the fans just something to keep in mind. Jesse joins us right now on ESPN one thousand really quick give us the because you're gonna join us at five. What's the answer on the container? Getting pulled for the pinch hitter. Oh, yeah. Well, the the the key is two times through the order. Yes. Against thirty three the third time through it's nine thirty three exactly three hundred points higher. According to baseball reference to me, there's another trip media, whatever it's very similar to hundred ninety five points higher. So that's the difference course, trying to extend the lead and the fact that he was getting hit in the fifth inning. I think all make sense to me, Phil. That's why he was pulled. That's why he gets a lot between the second and third time through all ask you the question quickly that Sylvia asked about how that philosophy works completely against the philosophy in Washington with Pedro stroke. Yeah. Now that was different though. He didn't trust we had behind him. And I agree. I agree that was a mistake. But he just figured these are my relievers strokes my last guy in that department and category reliever. I'm gonna try to stretch him out for another inning is really reliever at this point. Well, he's trying to get him back to being one. And I think it's the right move to put him in a four run lead. That's how you you find out with blowing the game three sort of bad performances for them to blow that lead. And look if they have like two relievers going to the postseason, it's gonna be a short postseason. I'm gonna tell you about everything he did last night, and they sent on so many different levels, absolutely whereabouts. That you guys. Are we got to let you yourself scrapping outlets continue this at five, but that was the answer. It was it was strictly on. Astronomic higher the PS that he wanted him out. Sunday, the bears go for three in a row and looked to stay on top of the NFC north after the game joined former bears Matt forte, Lance Briggs. Alex Brown for some fun on a football after show on NBC sports, Chicago can the bears dominate defensively. Again, you won't want to miss the guys talk. And it's the football after show presented by Buffalo Wild Wings on NBC sports, Chicago plus this week after the game spirited cubs talk, and that will continue one more against the pirates tonight, and then three against the cardinals in boy, if you could not hate the cardinals anymore than you already. Do the one time that you're sort of rooting for them. They completely crap the bed in Saint Louis. And now they're gonna come here. And if they play like a revitalize team, I know what a minute. Well, when we come back, you can tell us what you're gonna do. Yeah. I was just telling her bosses. I'm not as mad about the cubs anymore. I've sort of gotten over that they can convince yourself.

"Haven't even said anything if I knew you were going to be this crabby, I would have taken the day off. I was asked. I was gonna ask if you've already made your plans to take Super Bowl Sunday off. Are you? You're ready. No me like the back of your hand. You're damn right. I took the weekend off going to Atlanta. I love Miami clinches the division three weeks in. I love it. I love it. You know, what I think Arne? I think I've decided to take a whole new approach on this sports radio. Yeah. I've realized I've been doing it wrong. I've been doing it wrong my whole life. I mean, I I try to inject some logic and some common sale, but not at all. Oh, no. I mean dudes complaining about a guy holding a cellphone. They're on national TV. I maybe I'm doing this wrong. So I think it's time for Brady to go Arnie. He's got to go. I mean, I don't know who their seconds. Is it Brian Hoyer? They got some guy named Danny link. It's over. I mean, I'm watching a Washington quarterback here tonight. He's gotta go. If I'm Bob crap. I'm thinking about maybe firing Bill ballot. Check tonight. Why do you think about that is not a good way to go? You know, you think you'd be funny. But I watch it on the stand something if Tom Brady wasn't Tom Brady if Tom Brady played for Zona for buffalo. If he was tight Taylor. If if he was Bradford he would have been replaced by what are the rookie? Quarterback's going twelve for twenty four one thirty one thirteen one touchdown one interception. He would have been yanked. So quick your head would have spun. So funny, I believe it preying on daddy. They've got a rookie quarterback on. What are you talking about? Don't you study the depth chart settling time in New England? Let's go what are the real real rookie quarterback? You know what I'm saying? A real somebody to replace Tom Brady, you knew what it was eventually going to come. And I really see on Twitter chief Phillies trolling me, and I heard Jonas. And and and Brady Quinn going. I can't wait till tomorrow till everybody got you don't have to wait till tomorrow. I'll tell you right now we finally saw where were you on Sunday September twenty third when Tom Brady Guasta skills. I was right here on the radio with you. Well, again, if see I just can't do this. I got to inject common sense into this. You remember it's funny because whenever we hooked up when I started talking movies Arnie have you seen ferris Buehler's day off? Okay. There is an epic line where the principal is thinking. He's talking to fairus on the phone doing a voice, right? And he says why don't you just wheel grandma's old carcass right down here. Just just bring praying that coffin on up here. And let me see that's kind of how I feel when it comes to the patriots. This is cute that they're wanting to right now. Game today. Oh, yes. I know. I've watched a game. I've seen this active before I saw this last year. I saw this on Monday night football two years ago. I've seen it already been there done this. I will believe it when you wheel that carcass into the Geico Fox Sports radio studios. And I see the New England Patriots. Bad analogy, you should he used weekend at Bernie's. Because we'll we'll it and use it for the whole day of movie. Let me tell you something they gave up a hundred yards to a team that hasn't had one hundred yard rusher in five years that doesn't really make much of a difference. Does it this team is only a mere shadow of what it used to be Tom Brady has no weapons. Tom Brady's forty plus years old. They have no running game to say of they really have a problem defensively. They and by the way, they've already been mathematically eliminated from the AMC's division. So you take your pick, buddy. If you think it's going to be a good year. I don't think so I'm just pointing out the same thing that I point out every single time. We do this show after New England Patriots loss we've done this bit before Arnie. This is like the second date that the FM radio stations tried to do that is fake so fake. I mean, I feel like we've been here and we've done this who can them to loss in a row, gosh, we'll have to go back to these notes from last week that we had can you guys pull up the? The notes from whatever this happened two years ago and the year before this and Arnie buried in this story right now, it's the patriots old for crying out loud. I'm telling you what Arne I'm not doubting that there's problems there. But this is a week to week league. Did you think buffalo was going to go in and beat Minnesota today hail? No. I thought maybe they could thought maybe they could. Okay. Listen. I can I can buy your lies for a while. Shape or form the buffalo was going into Minnesota and beating the Viking the one that told you that Detroit was going to beat the patriots. Nobody believed me on that one. Either. My gosh. Yeah. So you're telling me if I go through the archives. Have you seen the pool that were I should probably should talk about this on the air who do you winning the pool with the football picks? Of course, it's me is it you now this another is a pretty big cat saying you only miss the picks that you don't cow. I mean is that kinda six? Six and three in my picks. I don't know who's really doing better than me. But I I feel guilty because I have unfair advantage because I know football better than everybody else. So you're in the area you're in the region. I think you've laid it out as as much as you can Miami's off to a great start through three in on the season. How to win. I think anyone that watched that game realized they had no business that was that was a very unique game today between the raiders and the dolphins. Buffalo gets a win. So maybe a little bit more life. They don't know what to make it the jets. I mean, outside of the fact that we gave him the Super Bowl trophy in week one. Right. And now the team they beat by hundred patriots tonight. So I I I don't know what to make of that. But with all that said Arnie legit problems. I mean, come on you don't get smoked by Detroit. Like this tonight. Not whenever you're calling out there audibles. I mean early in the game. They were calling out there audibles, and yet Detroit is still rolling like they are tonight. We can sit here and have fun with it all we want and patriot fans are very sensitive to these types of issues, but damn mardi. You're getting destroyed on Sunday night. Football for the entire country to see it. It's only twenty six to Ted. It could be like thirty five or forty two to ten. Let me tell you something if we had people tweet on in. I promise you more than sixty or seventy percent agree with me that the patriots and Tom Brady are done. I promise. I'd bet your watch. Chris that more people are going to agree with me agree with you. Well, and again, I'm telling you, I'm not necessarily arguing with you. But Arne we've been hearing we've done this and seventy percent of NFL fans would agree with you as well too. Because they hate the patriots. I mean, you could basically come on Tom Brady's overrated. Seventy percent would probably agree with you. Because they hate the patriots. That's kinda weird goes the New England's concerned the only victory they had now that we find out is not against the very not so good, Houston, Texas tea. That's victim victory. They could muster up. You know? What's interesting is we come to you live tonight from the geiko Fox Sports radio studios. Listen, we're open guest wise, we want to hear from you. I guess you to read from Frank too. Okay. I guess Todd Firmin's gets a TV show, and he needs to big time for it. So we'll continue to try to get Todd firm and on. Why am I not doing my picks on that TV show? Why am I not sounds like a problem between you and your agent or you and your people or whomever when it comes? Well, maybe it's because you've had the same Super Bowl every single year. Are maybe it had something to do with two of your four final four teams already being eliminated in college football my face. That'd be read. The fun fact the patriots are tied for last place in the AFC east with buffalo and the jets can't even get through anything without something shiny going off. If you ever want to throw Arnie off tweeted him something shiny like a dog. The wall. Everybody was ripping you earlier don't think I don't have Mark died in high wider gonna read that later on you use a highlighter on your tweets. I I was just had to come up with something. I didn't know. Yeah. You could like it. That's one way to do it. But no. So tonight, we want to hear from you is what I'm trying to lay out at plank show at stink genius one. Of course, everybody should be hitting us up at Fox Sports radio will take you to the post game press conferences, we may hear from a member of the lions when this game raps up, of course, last week. We heard from table in Austin afterwards. But we got we got tons to get to. I mean, we we could talk other sports. I don't think we're going to. I don't think we're going to be able to get into too much tiger tonight. We'll leave that to the weekday guys. And we'll leave that the Ben proper cloth. But you brought up Houston as a handful of Owen three teams right now in Arizona Oakland in Houston. And I think of all of the most surprising is where the Texans aren't it's interesting because that is the one win for New England that's the opening week win. But I don't know if there is a bigger disappointment even with the patriots and wanted to right now. Yeah. I guess you could say the jets after what happened in week one where they are with back to back losses. How is a team that people had pegged as a Super Bowl contenders? Sitting right now with Owen three with one of the best. If not the best defensive player in the NFL with one of the better up and coming quarterbacks in the NFL based on a six game sample size heading into this year. What the hell's going on down in Houston right now? You know, I I gotta be honest. I thought this was going to win the division. And now, I got it. They got pushed around by the New York Giants. The giants that stuff the Texans that they've been able to do it in years. I mean e y manic through for almost three hundred yards. It was twenty five at twenty nine. That's almost impossible for him. I mean, jeez. That that's like Aaron Rodgers ask. They had the running game. Go with the Shawn Watson was good. But you know, when you get out to the big lead. I've time when I think it was like twenty to six or something like that. I know Houston tried to make a rally, but when you're at home, you get down big like that. That's just a, you know, a a recipe for disaster. And that's exactly what happened the other. Their defense is not as good as advertised, and that's Romeo Colonel. And again, one of those guys that that's in that way Phillips. Mode where we consider him to be somewhat of a savant a genius when it comes to defensive mindsets. But man that was that was a really hard watch based on how much the giants had struggled. I mean, they're week three to me with teams that are Owens who was all about desperation Wright who plays with the most urgency, and I'm blown away that in watching that game the team that came up with the big play late was was New York. And I kind of like New York after watching them in week one with the giants did against the Jaguars and hanging in that game. Right. That's shocking as all get out to me that they were able to hold on ended up getting that wind today where where's the problem in Houston? Where's the problem in Dallas? Where's the problem in Oakland? Arizona Arizona, and Oakland aren't gonna fire coaches. But could you see a move being made in somewhere like big day or even heels when it comes to O'Brien gear tell you something this Jason GARRETT'S last year? I've either fire amid season. But this is it. He's done the Cowboys. I mean. And you could think up crazy the they would more than one or two games the rest of the year. They go the rest of the season and not wanna game. That's how bad they are. Okay. So we're we're in week three, and they're one and to and you think they could end up three and thirteen right? I did I say from the very beginning that I didn't like them. Right..

"Game. Putting it in the case today. I'm going to say he's taking the Browns. He's on the firm and bandwagon. We'll take the Brown. Right. Well, let's bring in cousin Sal writer performer. Jimmy Kimmel has a gambling podcast Todd Firmin's, a former oddsmaker Caesar has a podcast Caesar's palace has a met. Todd had dinner. He picked it up. Okay. Guys, run a new show called lock it in. So you are bringing out the mystery suitcase. I feel like this is a sexier version of deal or no deal kind. Okay. So now, it is interesting that you're bringing out the suitcase today, which would infer Todd that last night's game was my bet I was clearly off then I thought you had a little insider information on a game on Sunday. So I'm just curious as anybody, you know, what's going on inside the firm and thought Todd thought I was doing the Packers game because I did have a source the week before and Aaron Rodgers. Drum roll if we could here, this is the biggest bet of my life. All right. A thousand by the way before cousin south, Florida. How often do you bet a thousand dollars every three hours? Slow down a little bit. By the way, when you were at Caesars and tie, you know, the industry for professional gamblers of which I'm not is a thousand dollars a lot or minimum blue plate special. What is it? You know, it all depends on the sport and the National Football League professional bettors are going to have larger limits. Extended to them if you're talking about the WNBA or a college basketball total in the sunbelt on a Tuesday in February everybody for a professional better is a little bit different. In terms of the overall impact they can have on the market. So it's not uncommon in the NFL to see somebody come up with a Brown paper bag, especially around the big game at the end of the year for the NFL and go, you know, I want twenty or twenty five thousand to try and plunked down cash call and we had a player with us who had bet two hundred thousand dollars a game in the NFL. He would bet twelve to fourteen games a weekend. Now that might be like a five or ten dollar bet to everybody else. He didn't even blink. When he had a square up his figures at the end of the month drum roll, Jon cousin, Sal, you're going to unveil right? This is your picnic. Serving the scene. I think this is the closest Todd has ever been to a woman. I was waiting for the jet. But you know, what going to be disappointing. That's still not gonna say Handmaid's tale. And when you get your bankroll. So all right here, we go. This was Collins pick a thousand dollars. The jets.
