I just came back from my second trip to Las Vegas in 2013. I went to the sports book at the Aria and had a nice time and won some money and lost some money (see video above). I did better on my second trip, but I feel I should practice until the next time I'm in Vegas again to make some plays.
One thing in particular that didn't work out this trip was the Ted Baxter system (though I didn't use it).
The Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams were all double-digit underdogs and were all smoked by the favorites by enough points to cover the big spreads.
So now to the NFL Playoffs Odds this week and how I'd play them:
The Indianapolis Colts are favored over the Kansas City Chiefs by one point.
The Philadelphia Eagles are favored over the New Orleans Saints by three points.
The Cincinnati Bengals are favored over the San Diego Chargers by seven points.
The Green Bay Packers are favored over the San Francisco 49ers by three points.
In a simple 4-leg parlay, I'd take the Chiefs, Saints, Bengals and Packers.
Of the over/unders, the under (47) is only favored in the Packers-49ers game, I'd also take that in a parlay. Because it's projected to be below freezing for kickoff in the Eagles-Saints game, I'd take the under 54 points for a six-leg parlay. I'm not really too confident in picks besides the over/under, however.
To recap, I'd be betting this week:
4-leg: Chiefs, Saints, Bengals, Packers
6-leg: Chiefs, Saints, Bengals, Packers, Under Eagles-Saints, Under Packers-49ers
Straight Up: Under Eagles-Saints, Under Packers-49ers
Assuming a $10 bet on each, I'd be risking $40 on chances to win up to $607.80. Let's see what happens.
