by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

We’re here, again, to discuss what Jose Mourinho has done/said this week.
If you think that this is a weekly feature, it isn’t, but it probably should be.
But with things between the United manager and star midfielder Paul Pogba seemingly worse than ever, it’s an impossible story to ignore.
After United’s 2-2 draw with Southampton, Mourinho reportedly [...]

NFL Week 13 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from betway.com and the home teams in CAPs.
NEW ORLEANS -7.5 over Dallas
Well, that was unexpected. The Saints offence had few answers for Dallas’ defence. And they can’t even blame this one on being a Thursday night game as both teams had played on Thanksgiving.
Denver -5 over CINCINNATI
The Broncos are headed in the [...]

EPL FREE KICKS: Which ‘Invincible’ side is more bullet-proof?

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

And then there were two.
After a listless Chelsea side fell to Spurs at Wembley on Saturday, we now have only two “invincible” teams remaining in the Premier League. It’s actually surprising that there are two remaining heading into December, but here we are.
Manchester City and Liverpool are just two points apart at the top of [...]

NFL Week 12 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from betway.com and the home teams in CAPs.
DETROIT +3 over Chicago
It turns out that either who the QB is doesn’t really matter when you have the Bears’ defence or Chase Daniel is, in fact, a good NFL backup. Or, the Lions are just pretty bad.
Washington +7.5 over DALLAS
Amari Cooper will never live [...]

NFL Week 11 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Betway.com and the home teams in CAPs.
SEATTLE -2.5 over Green Bay
Could that have been the loss that seals the fate of Packers coach Mike McCarthy? Green Bay would be stupid to stick with him if they miss the playoffs and that’s looking even more likely now.
ATLANTA -3 over Dallas
This is a [...]

BILICKI: NFL Week 10 picks

PITTSBURGH -4 over Carolina
That was the most points that the Panthers have allowed in franchise history. And the Panthers have had some pretty bad teams before.

EPL FREE KICKS: FFP allegations could put Man City in world of hurt

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

Even with some fantastic football on the pitch this week, the biggest story was off it.
German news magazine Der Spiegel has published more leaked information from Football Leaks regarding Abu Dhabi’s involvement with Manchester City and how the club is allegedly skirting FIFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.
It’s no secret that City has been flush with [...]

NFL Week 9 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Betway.com and the home teams are in CAPs.
SAN FRANCISCO -3 over Oakland
The Raiders should be relegated to the CFL after that loss.
Pittsburgh +3 over BALTIMORE
The Ravens won this matchup in Pittsburgh, so we’re expecting some payback. The Ravens have slumped to a .500 record while the Steelers are riding a three-game [...]

EPL FREE KICKS: Loss of Leicester City chairman shakes more than just football

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

Sometimes there are things that take precedence over football and this week we saw just that, with the tragic helicopter crash and death of Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Srivaddhanaprabha was a true man of the people, giving away free beer and hot dogs to fans on his birthday. He bought the club when it was [...]
