Last week we teamed up to turn your $500 seed bet into significantly more money and we’re doing it again. Thanks to the nuances of sports betting, there are ways we can mitigate risk, boost our bank accounts and, most importantly, make fools of the pundits and prognosticators squawking on radios, podcasts and the television. If we can win cash while simultaneously rubbing it figuratively in Skip Bayless’ face, what’s better than that?
If you’re a novice at sports betting or have never done it before, you’re in good hands. BetOnline makes the whole process simple and painless and will even deposit a $1,000 bonus to your new account in the process when you join up today.

Lock of the Week
I usually give you a couple of options here, with one I like to zero in on for the biggest payout. Of course, betting moneyline locks aren’t built for that, so you have to be careful what you’re calling a “lock.”
For instance, take a look at the Los Angeles Chargers and their -415 moneyline over the New York Jets. Here’s why I’m scared of that. Say what you will about Joe Flacco, the guy that will likely start for the Jets the rest of the season as they begin tossing Sam Darnold’s clothes out the door like a girlfriend during a break up, but he was pretty good a couple of weeks ago. In fact, you can use the phrase “pretty good” to describe Flacco’s entire career. He was a decent starting quarterback in the league. What really set him apart, and it was weird, is the playoffs. Postseason Joe Flacco was elite. One of the best of his era.
The man, even as a rookie, was never one-and-done in the playoffs, something that his contemporaries like Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and even Tom Brady can’t claim. His postseason record is 10-5 with a Super Bowl Championship and he made it to the AFC title game three times. He passed for 3,223 yards, 25 touchdowns and 10 picks in those contests. Playoffs Flacco was the real deal. Which is kind of what he looked like against the New England Patriots two weeks ago.
Playing against an Anthony Lynn led Chargers team with a rookie QB puts the odds, still long, in Flacco’s favor. And, as we discussed a week ago, a team going 0-16 in the modern NFL is tough. Almost as hard as going 16-0. So it’s not my lock.
For that, we’re going with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who made throw rugs out of the Cincinnati Bengals to get to 10-0 Sunday. They’re seventh in points scored and third in points allowed. The Jacksonville Jaguars, on the other hand, are the Jags. Now, this game could be tighter than the spread, as the Steelers have never met an inferior team they won’t play down to, but a straight up win? Talent alone should get them across the …read more
