RPJ Betting Syndicate



Greetings folks. I’m riding solo on the Thursday night games as Flash wasn’t feelin’ the games. First, here are our season stats: RPJ $yndicate is 18-15-1, Flash is 5-3 and I am 13-14. I need to pull my weight!!! No better time than now to get back over the Mendoza Line. Here is what I like tonight (3 games total):

Pitt @ S. Florida (-13.5): I must admit that this is my least favorite pick of the 3 I’m giving tonight. Pitt has been such an enigma his year-they have not covered at all this year and they have not looked great in their wins. South Florida has been just as strange-they have only covered once, but they have looked good. Their win over Kansas was impressive. Pitt does not have a similar win.

The keys to this game are location and QB play. South Florida has huge advantages in both. This is a lot of points, but I think South Florida is up for it. They like the Thursday night spotlight. They have a much better coach and George Selvie is ridiculous. I think they cover by a 1/2 point. Tidbit: South Florida is 6-0 ATS as favorites of 5 points or more against teams they beat the year before. Take South Florida -13.5.

Memphis @ UAB (+3): I like this game. Battle of C-USA rivals that are playing for a bronze statue of ribs!! How can you beat that?!?!?!?! I can’t think of a better thing to play for!!!!! Facts: Memphis is 3-14 ATS as favorites of less than 10; UAB is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 against Memphis (4-0 in their last 4 at home) and 9-0 ATS as underdogs of less than 10 off straight-up losses against teams off a straight-up win. Plus, UAB’s schedule has been pretty impressive (Tulsa, @FAU, @Tenn, Bama State, @ South Carolina) and they have covered 50% of the time in lined games. We like them getting points at home. Take UAB +3.

Oregon State @ Utah (-12): I like this game a lot, too. Oregon State is fresh off their HUGE upset of USC last week. It could have ended USC’s chances at a BCS championship. We’ll see. They looked damn good last week. Utah has been just as impressive all year. I predict that they will be in a BCS Bowl game this January. They will do well. Will Oregon State do the same thing they did to USC last week? I don’t think so at all. They caught USC sleeping. USC was not prepared and they took it right on the chin. Utah has seen what they can do, so there will be no surprises. Plus, this game is not in Corvalis. Utah pounds them. Here are some facts: Oregon State is 1-7 ATS against non-conference teams that are .500 or better; Utah is 9-1-1 as home favorites of 11 or more. Utah rolls. Take Utah -12.

As always, good luck.

12/21 Free NCAA Football Bowl Pick and Hot Chicks: Florida Atalantic Versus Memphis

Please join us on our new website. We have the same hot chicks and great picks. Click here….


On this very short bowl season we only have one game out there so far and that is Utah over Navy. Just a reminder on the ground rules….every pick we post is backed up by our own money. We made money on the regular season, up 13 units and we are putting those units to work on the bowl season. We have 6 different betting values we assign to each bowl game so pay attention.

We are assigning this a Heidi Klum bet.

1 Unit Bet = The Heidi Klum bet. You know she is hot but her judgement must be suspect cause she married one of the ugliest human beings outside of Scottie Pippen, Sam Cassell and Charlie Weis (of course we took a dig at Notre Dame in this blog). We love the Heidi Klum but something is off with her judgement so we are only comfortable making her a a one unit bet.

Seal is one lucky dude!!!!


And of course, a shot from the backside:


And on with the game….

Memphis versus Florida Atlantic (-2.5) in the New Orleans Bowl

In a game like this where the casual fan has never seen either team play this year you need to understand who is favored and why. Both teams started off the season poorly and finished strong. Memphis won 5 of their last 6 games with the lone loss a 56-40 beat down by East Carolina. Out of Memphis’ 7 wins, 5 of the wins were by 3 points or less so they know how to win close games. Florida Atlantic was 7 -5 on the season with losses at Florida, at Kentucky, at Oklahoma State and at home against South Florida. So the only loss to really question is their 33-30 loss to Louisiana-Monroe. Florida Atlantic ended the season with an impressive win against Florida International and a very impressive win against Troy as 15 point underdogs (a bet we lost and remember well).

Lets take a look at the against the spread numbers for both teams:

Florida Atlantic
Owls are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on turf.
Owls are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite.
Owls are 4-9 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Owls are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 non-conference games.

Tigers are 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss.
Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0.
Tigers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
Tigers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games as an underdog.
Tigers are 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
Tigers are 15-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Tigers are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
Tigers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
Tigers are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 games following a straight up win.
Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.

Looks pretty even. We will say that the Florida Atlantic ATS numbers of 4-9 ATS vs. a winning team and 2-10 ATS in their non-conference games are not that meaningful to us because they go out and play the likes of Florida, Kentucky, South Florida, etc…

When you look a little deeper at this game, Memphis’ defense sticks out as a problem. Memphis held only one opponent under 21 points this season and conceded 50-plus points to three C-USA opponents. When you combine that with the fact that Florida Atalantic averaged 36 points per game in the second half, including a 38-point performance against the conference favorites in the final game of the season you have a potential recipe for disaster. Also, Florida Atlantic has a 19-9 edge in the turnover ratio department and averaged almost 3 takeaways a game.

Now we get to the X factor, Florida Atlantic Coach Howard Schnellenberger. Coach is looking to go 5-0 in bowl games. That is right, he has never lost a bowl game and when we see the line under 3 points in their favor we are loving it. Coach coached his team to a 6-1 conference record and took out Troy when nobody was expecting it. We are not betting against this man and team again.

Florida Atlantic wins and covers!!!

2007-2008 NCAA Football Bowl Preview: RPJ Syndicate’s Guide to Making Money

We concluded the NCAA Football regular season with a record of 59-54. We were 6-4 on Eva Mendes bets, which were our super bets meaning we bet 5 times our normal unit. This approach led us to win 13 units on the season. Take away the Vig (about 10%) and we are working with with just under 12 units….11.7 to be exact. We would have liked to win more but we won and that is a lot better than other so called “experts can say”.

The reason we started our blog is because we went 19-4 during last season’s Bowl Season. We crushed it!!!! Combining our record with an article in the Wall Street Journal about a sports picker out in Cal-Berkely who was giving away his picks for free and winning at a nice rate. Well this Cal-Berkeley guy made his picks for pay when he had enough of a fan base and he was making $10k a month in his first few months on top of his gambling money. We know our system and our picking are world class and we are revealing all of our picks to you for free. You the reader are reaping the benefits of a free winning system. The point of gambling is not to have more fun while watching games…the point is to make cold hard cash and when you follow us, as we proved during this season, you make cash!!!

Now the point of this Bowl season is to take your/our 11.7 units and turn that into a lot more. We are going to give you specific reasons why we are picking a game and sometimes we might just tell you to pick a game just like we did with our pick of PITT to cover against West Virginia for their December 1 game. Our betting system is based on a trial and tested system and we always put our money where our mouth is with no exceptions.

For this bowl season we are going to set up a system for you where you bet 1,2,3,4,5 and the Super Bet for as many betting units as you are willing to risk. The Super Bet is our 99.99999% lock!! These bets are called:

The Super Bet = The Keyra Shake that Money Maker bet – These will be our super lock bets. The bets we are taking out second mortgages, bank loans, hitting up friends and relatives…you get the picture. Bet as much as you can stomach bets.

5 Unit Bet = The Eva Mendes Bet – We love us some Eva and think she is a Goddess. Since we renamed the Brinks truck bet the Eva Mendes we went 3-1 with it.

4 Unit Bet = The Shakira Hips Don’t Lie bet- We love us some Shakira and her hip shaking bits. In honor of this Columbian love ma-cheen, we named one of our bets after her. For the Shakira bets, place 4 times your typical unit of bet.

3 Unit Bet = The Dahm Triplets bet-A lot of great things come in threes. The Dahm Triplets are no exception. Indeed, they are Dahm hot!! For these bets, bet 3 times your typical betting unit… one for each one of these lovely ladies. Be sure to send the vig to their parents as thank you for gracing us with them. The world is definitely 3 times better since they were delivered from the heavens.

2 Unit Bet = The Derek Jeter Bet – In honor of one of our favorite athletes, the 2 unit bet will be a tribute to all of the women Derek Jeter has allegedly slept with including, Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johanson, Mariah Carey, Anna Kournikouva, Miss Universes, models, etc…. We have a ton of chicks to choose for this bet in honor of our man Derek Jeter.

1 Unit Bet = The Heidi Klum bet. You know she is hot but her judgement must be suspect cause she married one of the ugliest human beings outside of Scottie Pippen, Sam Cassell and Charlie Weis (of course we took a dig at Notre Dame in this blog). We love the Heidi Klum but something is off with her judgement so we are only comfortable making her a a one unit bet.

Below is the schedule for all bowl games this season. We are going to pick as many games as our system spits out. Do not expect us to pick every game but we will have action on most of them. We will probably post our picks on this blog 1-2 days before each bowl. Please feel free to ask us any questions or post comments on this blog. Our email is rpjsyndicate@gmail.com.
