Hopefully everyone has seen the movie Bronx Tale. There is a character in that movie, a gambler, who corrupts everything he touches.
I firmly believe in the Mush Factor. I have a buddy who is complete Mush. He’s a great dude and his heart is always in the right place but when he calls me and tells me that he’s on the same thing I’am, I know it’s a loser. Not only that, it will be an act of god loss. There is no question that the loss will come via a blocked FG or a shot banked in from Half Court. I’m convinced that the Immaculate Conception occurred because of a Mush gambler. My friend single-handedly caused the loss of the Patriots in Indy. After telling him I was in for a parlay with the Pats(+3) and the over he told me he would be taking the patriots money line. We all saw what happened.
Once my buddy told me he was on the Lions Sunday, I knew it was going to be a loss and I should have not only warned everyone but hedged my bet. Stafford’s safety was definitely an act of the gambling gods. This is my bad.
Then, Inexplicably, the same thing happened on Monday with Houston. I knew it. He was the cause of Brown missing both those FG’s. There is no question. Spent 30 mins convincing me that Houston was sick. I bought. I was leaning Tenn. Only Mush is responsible for my losing streak. I’m on R&R and will be returning hung over on Turkey Day. The only Pick I know for sure that I’m taking is:
Westford +4 over Acton Boxboro and Westford +240 Money Line.
