So the 2007 Sports Betting Season has come to an end and we here at HCHP’S couldn’t be more happy!  The Final End Tally is:  44 Wins 32 Losses 4 Pushes

That is  44-32-4 for the regular season of the NFL Season!

It works out to a WINNING PERCENTAGE OF 57.8%!

Most sports bettors don’t get near that kind of winning percentage.  In fact,  most Professional Vegas Gamblers only win at a rate of 55%, so we here at HCHP’S are doing just fine, thank you! In fact, since Week 6, we have been an astonishing 62.7% (32-19-2).

Now it’s on to the playoffs!  I just saw Madison’s picks and I must say I disagree with a couple of them, so we’ll see who is correct by the end of Sunday.

Right now I want to say that it’s been a fucking grind to play out the season, just like it is for the players of this tough league.  I want to thank all of you for tuning into HCHP’S the entire season for all of our rants and raves.  I think we had a great season on more than just one front and we look forward to Sports Betting Freakin’ with all of you over the next few seasons.  So in short here is a breakdown of our averages over the course of the NFL Regular Season:

Weeks 1-17:                44-32-4     57.8%

Weeks 6-17:                32-19-2     62.7%

To Breakdown our Winning Percentages for realistic purposes here is a sample:

If you Risked $100 per play for the entire season at an average rate of -110 per game you would have won–  $760

If you had risked $200 per game at a rate of -110 per game you would have won– $1,520

and if you had been playing at $500 per game risked, you would have won, over the course the regular season, $3,800!

Now it’s on to the playoffs!  I’ll have my picks coming out shortly after this post and I look forward to bringin’ home the bacon over the month of January!

Hey Ya’ll Sports Betting Freaks! Get your Drawl on for one helluva match-up tonight in the Big D! HCHP’s is coming off yet another 4-2 weekend in the Money Picks. Are you making Money Yet? You should be if you have been listening to me the past 6 weeks. This was our 3rd week in a row where we went 4-2. If it wasn’t for the Fucking Debacle in Chicago from the entire Denver Broncos team we would have been 5-1. That was the toughest loss I’ve suffered in a long time. I was set to really ‘Clean Up Money Wise’ and was telling my Dog Dante how ‘In the money we were going to be’ with 5 minutes left in the game. I put the blame on Shanahan for not making sure everybody understood that under no circumstances whatsoever do you kick the Fuckin’ Ball to Devin Hester! I don’t know what more evidence you need to get that through to your Punter and everybody else on the squad, especially when you had a kick off returned against you earlier in the game. Well, enough with the past as we have possibly the best game of the weekend coming up tonight in Dallas.

Everywhere you turn in this game the match-ups are amazing. The Pack have a tremendous D-Line that gets to the QB very well matched up against an enormous O-Line of the Cowboys. You’ve got Al Harris matched up against Terrell Owens and both Linebacking crews are playmakers who will stick you. Last, but obviously not least is ‘The Old Gunslinger vs the New Kid on the Block’ at the old corral! Favre against Romo. This could get FUN Kids. Come to think of it Romo does look like he could have been a ‘New Kid’ back in his teenage years.

The key to this game in my opinion will come down to which QB stays away from a devastating interception on their own side of the 50 yard line. The INT that 2 plays later turns into 7 points for the other team. If they both stay away from this kind of mistake then it gets into what O-Line can establish the line of scrimmage. I feel the Packers can get to Romo a few times, especially early on and disrupt him. The Cowboys could very well counter with running Barber III on draws and getting him out on some screens to take away that aggressive pass rush. I do think the Cowboys will have a harder time containing the quick hitting slant patterns the Packers run so well than the Packers will have with containing TE Jason Witten in the Cowboys Pass Offense.

As I run the numbers in this game it looks like it should come down to a 31-31 Tie! Even giving the Cowboys a 4 point Home Field Advantage makes this game a likely 31-27 or 34-28 type of game. The Line in this game right now on betonline.com is Cowboys -7! I’ve looked at this game from the standpoint that you have to assume, given the way the Cowboys have been playing at home this year, they will score 28-34 points. That means the Packers need to score roughly 24-27 points to stay within the spread with a good possibility of them scoring 28-31. The Packers have one of the better defenses the Cowboys have seen this year as well as having ‘Old Man’ Favre at the Helm. Given that this game is for all the playoff advantages next month, you have to side with the underdog and a full touchdown of points.

Money Pick #1 of the Week

Packers +7 @ Cowboys

TAKE THE PACKERS +7

So there you go Freaks. Enjoy the game and I’ll be back on Saturday with my Picks for the Sunday Games!

What up all you sports betting freaks? Alikat is back with a recap of Week 10, which was very good for us. HCHP’s went 4-2 in our Money Picks and 5-3 in our Gun To The Head Picks! The biggest disappointment came of course from the Vikings being shutout against the Packers. I’m more concerned with the health of Adrian ‘Purple Jesus’ Peterson than I am the final score. It sounds as if he’s going to be back at some point this year. I hope the ‘Vikings Brass’ has enough sense to take a lot of time and care with the best running back to come into the NFL since Eric Dickerson. There is no need to try and salvage Brad Childress’s 2nd Lost Season. He needs to GO HOME! I’m so tired of this idiot trying to run plays with players that don’t fit ‘His System’ and not making ‘In Game’ adjustments that I’m about ready to send in my Head Coaching job application into the Vikings as we write.

The other big story was the Colts/Chargers game. What a bunch of SHIT that ball placement fiasco was at the end of the game. First, we have Joseph Addai getting the first down and the ball being placed where it should have been, Then VEGAS gets it’s precious little dirty hands on the situation (you know the whole country had the COLTS to COVER) and we sit through 15 minutes of phone gabbing between the NFL and VEGAS and God knows who else to see if we can’t Back that Ball Spot up about 10 inches. After all of this has taken place we of course wind up with the spot of the ball being just shy of the first down and the Colts having to make the Chip Shot Field Goal to WIN. VEGAS could care less that the COlTS will pull this out, despite Manning throwing an unprecedented 6 interceptions, so long as they won’t score a Touchdown and Cover at the end of the game. You see, up to that point, the Sportsbooks couldn’t have been doing that well, as there were a lot of underdogs covering, and we all know the majority of the public bets the favorite. Well, we get the chip shot field goal and lo and behold the best kicker in the game, ADAM, misses it! Norv Turner’s job is safe for another couple of weeks. I about tossed the Beer I was drinkin’ through my front window. The Colts would have ran that in for a touchdown and cover giving me a 5-1 record on the day. Anyhow, there are so many more important things to bitch about!

Since Week 6 we are 13-6-2! Our Season Total is 25-19-4 for a wonderful 56.8% winning percentage! If you take away Week 1 and tally up results from Week 2-10 HCHP’s is 24-16-2 for a whopping 60% Winning Percentage. Now, where else are you able to get this kind of WINNING for FREE?

RECORD FOR SEASON: 25-19-4 (56.8%)

WEEKS 2-10: 24-16-2 (60%)

WEEKS 6-10: 13-6-2 (68.4%)

Just keep on stopping by guys and girls and we’ll continue to make some MONEY as the Season heads into the Home Stretch. Check back on Friday Night or Saturday Morning as I will release my Pick’s for Week 11!

What’s going on sports betting friends? I’m finally getting my life back to some sense of normalcy as the 2, not 1 bathroom renovations at my house are finished except for some minor touch up work. I’m finally getting a chance to spend all day looking at the trends and numbers that go into my picks. I thought while I’m sitting here working on the picks for Week 9 I would catch up with you all with the results of the past 2 weeks.

In Week 7 we here at HCHP’s went 2-1 in our Money Picks and last Week we were a very Cool 3-0. The past 3 weeks have been very good as we are 8-2-1! Those are some fantastic numbers that I’ll put up with anybody in the business! Last week had the Raiders holding up as the 7 point dog in Titanville, the Steelers destroying the Bengals in Cincy, and the Saints getting their season back on track by blowing out the hapless 49er’s.

Even my Junior Varsity picks last week went an overall 9-4 ATS! Can’t beat that for making a little extra money for all your bad habits! The games I’m zeroing in on for this weekend so far are the Redskins -3.5 @ Jets, Bengals -1 @ Bills, Chargers -7 @ Vikes, and the Saints vs Jags game down in New Orleans. So stay tuned for the Picks post which will be out later tonight or first thing tomorrow morning. Enjoy happy hour!

I know I’m a couple of days late with this post Sports Betting Freaks. I guess I’m acting like my contractors working on my girly bathroom renovation who decided to not show up at all on Tuesday. The reason for their absence has ranged from a “24 hour drug binge” to “I just got caught up working at another chicks place and lost all track of time”. Hmm… I wonder if Madison is secretly doing a kitchen renovation I don’t know about. Just a little reminder for all you contractors out there that tune in to the site and love a little action on Sundays: Just because this stereotype of Contractors coming and going with out so much as a phone call seems to be true to form doesn’t make it right. At the very least, a Girl deserves to know why she is getting stood up! You know, we chicks can be very understanding if ya all just give us a call. Hell, I can even deal with the guy who has the balls to say “Um, I got really fucked up last night and I had a few beers for breakfast this morning, so I just don’t think you want me operating saws and hammers”! Anyhow, enough of my girly saga. On with the rest of the show…

How about them apples! Our Money Picks went 3-1-1! The grand total of the weekend was an excellent 8-5-1. I’ll take 75% on the Money Picks and 61% for the Junior Varsity Picks. As most of you know, we started a little pick’em contest with the readers over at The Fan Yard last week. From the looks of things they had 7 wins total, with the Giants covering for both of us on Monday Night. Pretty close! We’re going to be competing with them the rest of the year so sit back and enjoy the smackdown! I gotta say I like the way the readers get to chime in and work out the spread in their own unique fashion over there at thefanyard.com It’s kinda like how us girls get together and hash out all of our boyfriend troubles, eventually coming up with the Lines we’re going to use to wrap you guys around our fingers for the next week.

So far for the season we are 15-14-3 in our Money Picks. If you take away that ridiculous Week 1 debacle we are 14-11-1 for a consistent 56% in our Money Picks. We get better as the season rolls on. We have much more work to do, but that 60% milestone is right in front of us and we’re hot on it’s heels.

So far I’m not liking to much of the games coming up this Sunday. I do have my eyes on the Colts -3 @ Jaguars, Steelers -3.5 @ Broncos, Ravens -3 @ Bills, Bears +5 @ Eagles, and Bucs +2.5 @ Lions. I’ve got some more research to do, but I’ll be back tomorrow with My Picks for this Sunday.

In the meantime I have to go pick out the Tile for my bathroom. Anyone want to come help me?

What’s up sports betting boys and girls? How many of you had the 45 point under last night? It seemed like the under was becoming a popular choice as the day progressed. The line moved a 1/2 point down on BoDog and the rumors out there seemed to be favoring that thinking.

Hell, I even put down a little side wager with “Hollywood,” my big brother. He rode the motorcycle, wore sunglasses, and swaggered like Jim McMahon when he was a stud high school quarterback so one of his coaches nicknamed him Hollywood and it stuck! We always gave him shit for that. Anyway, that little hotshot went on to play some pro baseball before a severed finger injury took him out. Hollywood became a bit of a bohemian and drifted around for awhile and now splits his time between Minnesota and Costa Rica. Anyway, we wagered on the over/under for the Bills team total (17.5).

kc_bills260213×1035.jpg

I, of course, took the under as I thought there was no way in hell the Bills would score more than that on the Cowboys. Hollywood took the over because he thought there might be some Crazy Ass Bills Fan Theatrics to motivate the home team and that the Cowboys would be looking ahead towards the Patriots next week. Well, we all saw some Crazy Ass Shit last night. I can’t remember a game so crazy in recent years! I lost of course due to Tony “Don’t call me Brett Favre” Romo’s playground antics. He seemed to be having a case of color blindness for the entire game. The Bills only scored 3 points on offense for crying out loud and should have won the game…which brings me to my Week 5 Picks Recap.

Speaking of Favre, the sonofbitch got back to his old ways in the second half of that Bears game and threw one right to Brian Urlacher. The Pack were up 20-10 at that point and despite Coach McCarthey forgetting how to call an offensive minded play in that half they would have gone on to win if not for that pick. It made me go to 3-3 this week on the Money Picks as opposed to 4-2 ATS.

The Jags did what I thought they would as the D-Line stuffed the Chiefs for 12 yards rushing.

The Redskins took care of the “Jesus is my God” Kitna led Lions. I swear, it’s not enough that the whole United States is becoming a bunch Jesus freaks and abandoning all reason when it comes to making the simplest of decisions, but now I have to read full ESPN Magazine articles devoted to Kitna’s God and football heroics. Jon Kitna and God…Hmm! Will the Bush Administration ever be over?

falwell.jpg

pope_bush.jpg

The Chargers came out like closeted Midwestern cowboys after a 3 day, eye-opening vacation in West Hollywood; they were on FIRE! L.T. got the cape out and the Valtrex worked for a change on Norv “Don’t call me Ike” Turner. We’ll see if this was a one time thing or if the Lightning Bolts are back like the “Chucky” movie sequels.

The Saints can’t even cover 3 points at home, when their season is hanging in the balance! Knowing how badly Bush & Halliburton bungled the Katrina response, maybe Brees and R. Bush are just too exhausted to play football after putting a city on their shoulders last year.

The Ravens may have the worst passing attack around since the days when helmets were made of leather. You gotta do better than 9 points against a middle of the road defense! You would think Brian Billick could do better than this, being that he is the former offensive coordinator of the 1998 Minnsota Vikings, who hold the record for most points scored in one season (513) by an NFL team in league history.

Unlike this past weekend, I like many match-ups coming down the chute this Sunday. A few I already have my eye on are: Titans +3 @ Bucs, Eagles -3 @ Jets, Redskins +3 @ Packers, and Patriots -4.5 @ Cowboys.

The past 4 weeks we are 11-10-1. Not great by any means, but if Favre didn’t throw that pick or the Ravens had scored another field goal we would be 12-9-1 ATS (54.4%). I get better with age (don’t all of us gals?), meaning that I get better as the season goes on and we shake out who’s for real and who the posers are. Tune in on Friday for my picks and remember: always tip your bartenders and servers.  After all, they put up with your drunk asses!

I love when I take myself and all my sports betting freaks out there to the Bank! I went 3-1-1 in my money picks and 6-4-3 with the rest of the games. Had you been playing $1000 per game you would have walked away with a cool $1800 profit. Maybe a few more weekends like this and even a sports betting junkie chick like myself can one day look like Grace. As Jack Nicholson once said to Anjelica Huston at a Broadway Show when Anjelica was complaining about the comments Katherine Hepburn was making about the acting in the show and told Jack to go tell Kate to quiet down. Jack said, “Honey I may be famous, but I’m not THAT FAMOUS”! Well I’m beautiful, but not that beautiful! Even though Grace spent some time at the Monte Carlo I think she would have lost her bra betting against me just like the sports books did this weekend. I just Love To Win!

I totally got burned on the Rams this weekend as they went down hard against the Bucs. I really felt they were going to get their offense going against a so so D in Tampa. Boy was I wrong on that one. Marc Bulger is looking unsure and hesitant in the pocket and Stephen Jackson, though he did run for over 100 yards finally, can’t seem to break off that huge game changing blast that he did all the time last year. It’s looking like 2007 could already be going up in flames for the Rams. Speaking of Jackson, he is going to be out this Sunday with a groin injury against the Dallas Cowboys. The hits just keep on comin’ for the Rams!

The Colts had yet another tough game with the Texans despite the loss of WR Andre Johnson. I told you all to make sure you took the Colts at no more than -6. Let’s hope you all listened as they pushed at 6 points. The Texans are probably the most improved team from last year and I see them having a lot of value over the next 13 games.

Now we can talk about the 3 winners: How about the 2 overs I called for you guys! The Cardinals looked pretty rough for 3 quarters, but in came Kurt Warner to save the day and our Money. Who said Jesus Lovers don’t care about Money? Kurt came in and damn near led the Cards back for the straight up Win. He got a couple of touchdown drives and that took us over the 35.5 points for this Hottie! Then came the most exciting game of the day in the Redskins vs Giants. I figured this would go over the 40.5 points it was listed at and I told you to buy a 1/2 point to get it down to 40 just in case you have a missed extra point. Eli Manning started getting the Giants going in the 3rd quarter as the whole Giant organization could feel this was their season in the balance. They finally started to play some Defense and ended the game on a great goal line stance as time ran out on the Redskins. Tom Coughlin lives to see another Sunday.

Finally we turned to the Cowboys and Hexy Rexy in Chicago for the last wager of the day. Hexy Rexy did what I thought he would do…Suck up the joint! He was so bad that we may have finally seen the last of him as a starter in the NFL. Rex had 3 interceptions on the night and was so bad at staring down his first receiver that some of my girlfriends could have picked him off. Tony Romo just earned himself about 80 million dollars after a terrific performance. That Tony is easy on the eyes and finally feeds the ball to Crybaby T.O. enough that we don’t have to wonder if Mr. Owens is going to slash his wrists on Monday morning. The Cowboys are looking like the front-runner of the NFC so far and we’ll just have to see if that secondary can hold up.

So there you have it sports betting freaks. I’m getting back to my winning ways after a FUBAR 1st week. All told here are my MONEY PICK’S TOTALS TO DATE–

Week 1: 1-3-1

Week 2: 3-2

Week 3: 3-1-1

Totals: 7-6-3

Well I gotta go and do some research for this Sunday. Stay tuned tomorrow as I start to preview the first of 3 match-ups I think will be electrifying this weekend!
