Steve, Umatilla County’s biggest Minnesota Vikings fan, is walking on Cloud 9 after last week’s incredible finish put his team into the NFC Championship. We’re thinking his fandom his caused problems for his gambling IQ however, as the pickers went 0-3-1 last week. This week, they go with two more favorites: Minnesota (-3) and New England (-7.5).
Tim and Steve were dealt some blows last week, as underdogs went 4-0 against the spread and the pickers only went with one of them. This week, Steve is worried about his Vikings, so they choose to go with Atlanta (-3), Tennessee (+13.5), Pittsburgh (-7) and Minnesota (-5.)
Steve is back from foreign lands to pick some games with Tim — and none too soon, after last week’s 0-5 debacle. But the playoffs begin in earnest, and the boys are chasing a perfect 11-0 stretch. To start, they take Kansas City (-8.5), LA Rams (-6), Jacksonville (-8.5) and Carolina (+6.5).
The NFL regular season comes to an end, and with Steve out of the country, Tim and George make the final picks of the year. They go with Pittsburgh (-11), Washington (-3), Oakland (+7), New Orleans (-7) and Seattle (-9.5). Thanks for listening all year long, and check in next week as the playoffs begin.
Tim Trainor has to pay off his bet after his Bengals lost to Steve’s Vikings last week. So through the course of this podcast, he ate three footlong corn dogs and one deep-friend German sausage.
The pickers went undefeated last week, but they missed out on their 5-0 goal after they went 3-0-2 with two pushes. That puts their season record at 40-28-6.
This Christmas week they take Detroit (-5), L.A. Rams (-6.5), Cleveland! (+6.5), San Francisco (+4.5) and Dallas (-5).
The end of the NFL season approaches, and Tim and Steve’s teams play each other this week as the Bengals tangle with the Vikings.
Their run of winners came to an end, however, as they went 2-3 in Week 14. That drops their season total to a still respectable 37-28-4 record.
As always, thanks for listening.
East Oregonian sports reporters Eric Singer and Alexis Mansanarez sit down with the newspaper’s all-area football player of the year Andrew James. James helped lead the Hermiston Bulldogs to a storybook season, their last in the OSAA.
Emily Olson interviews senior reporter Phil Wright about this week’s story on the Disability Rights Oregon report about ‘inhumane’ treatment of juvenile offenders at the Northeastern Oregon Regional Correctional Facility in The Dalles.
Fresh off back-to-back 4-1 weeks, and Steve correctly nabbing the Thanksgiving Day Parlay, the pickers are hot. They hope to keep their roll continuing while talking about the NFL news of the week, including the benching of Eli Manning and the Broncos-Raiders brawl.
Their picks this week: New England (-8.5), N.Y. Jets (+3.5), New Orleans (-4), Oakland (-7) and Philadelphia (-5.5)
As always, thanks for listening!
Season record: 32-24-3
Tim and Steve continue to make gamblers money. The duo has come out ahead in 8 of 10 weeks this year, and has an overall record of 25-22-3 — much better than the consensus picks of the professionals.
This week, the duo tries to continue their winning ways by picking Minnesota (-2.5), Washington (+7.5), Los Angeles Chargers (-4), Denver (-2.5) and New England (-7).
