Ted Labanowich passes. NFL picks for week 6.

Ted Labanowich dies at 74, after a battle with stomach cancer He was a hard guy not to like and a fellow speed figure handicapper. I wonder if he kept his old interview tapes. He will be missed. Bye Ted.


Tote problems at the Windsor Hub caused a refund for people who bet on Woodbine's third race at Fort Erie race track last Monday
. It took the track more than an hour to make the announcement. By then, pretty much the only people holding tickets that could be refunded were those holding winning tickets (or at least, they thought they were winning tickets). Most tickets were discarded on the floor or in the garbage.

NFL PICKS

I'm calling a mulligan for last week. 0 and 3 for games I picked out? Now I'm 8-6-1 against the spread this year. I'm due for a big week so here goes:

How can Tampa Bay be favored over anyone with their key injuries? Something is fishy here. And bookies don't lose money. Take Tampa Bay and lay the 3 points over Tennessee.

I like the Jets are getting 3 and a half at home to Philly. Philly is erratic, and the Jets seem to be respectable against non top teams (and Philly is not a top team this year).

I love Atlanta this week getting 3 and a half at home to the Giants. The Giants were all but written off without Tiki, but they have found a way to win. That being said, they are too conservative and the game will most likely come down to a game winning field goal. Atlanta looks respectable and they are underrated going into this game.

Last Monday night's game between Dallas and Buffalo has to rank up their in one of the greatest/weirdest games of all times. It was completely entertaining to watch right down to the end...I think even for those who laid more than two touchdowns betting Dallas....maybe not....but that would be a shame.
