The DOL Too Many Legs Teaser of the Week hit yesterday for the first time since week 7 and experienced its first true 8 for 8, +1000 payout since week 4; #Yikes.
It's been so looooong (one O for each week) since I wrote a #TooManyLegs victory recap blog that you can clearly see how much "I use food to cope with existence" weight ya boi has put on since our last cash out. #DoubleYikes
Luckily January will be here before you know it.
As for the teaser itself, not only did the teaser hit, but the lines/totals that I teased went 7-1 in their original state. While I'm a big advocate of responsible gambling, that really makes me wanna bet the entire board next week. The only teaser pick that didn't cover in real life was the Raiders.
Oh those pesky Las Vegas nee Oakland; Los Angeles; Oakland Raiders. This blog might as well be only about them. Sure, Gunner's 2nd kickoff return TD of the season was sick..
..Kyler's passing line was hilarious (before both teams went OFF in the 2nd half)..
.. and the Packers made me sweat for a minute or 10 when Jalen Hurts gave the Eagles a serious jolt until Aaron Jones made sure the teaser stayed alive for Sunday Night Football.
None of that would've matter if it wasn't for the Las Vegas Raiders and Gregg Williams going full send in a blaze of glory in what would be his final game as Jets defensive coordinater. After getting blown out in Atlanta last week, I made the Raiders the first official leg of this week's teaser to not only challenge them, but myself as well for trusting these frauds.
When the Raiders allowed a nearly six minute touchdown drive to Adam Gase's New York Jets to open the game and followed that up with a pick, I was officially terrified that the Raiders never got a chance to check out my blog and didn't realize what was at stake for both of us.
The Jets held a 13-7 lead in the 2nd quarter before the Raiders scored 17 straight points (highlighted by an over seven minute touchdown drive coming out of halftime) to take a 24-13 lead. It seemed like this game was going to go as the "experts" expected.
Then the Raiders decided to play like a team who's allowed the 28th most points in the league vs an 0-11 football team.
On the Raiders ensuing drive they were able to get within the Jets 10 yard line before turning the ball over on downs. Needless to say I was not enthused.
The Jets got the ball back on their own 9 yard line with only 1:37 remaining. Since the Raiders only had two timeouts, one first down would end the game and more importantly the Too Many Legs Teaser's hopes for a 6th straight week. After forcing a three and out, Vegas got the ball back on their own 39 with 35 seconds remaining.
Fast forward to 3rd and 10 from the Jets 46, just one play after Derek Carr nearly hit Nelson Agholor for the game winner.
Thank God for that bounty scumbag POS, Gregg Williams sending the house and having no safeties deep for two straight plays.
Not only did Derek Carr shut me up, but Henry Ruggs got to atone for a big drop earlier in the 4th. What a moment!
I don't know if that was some long con to keep the 0-16 "Tank for Trevor" year alive for NYJ or just some of the worst situational coaching of all time, but either way I am not asking anymore questions and gladly taking my payout. -1.5 never in doubt!
After going 7 for 7 in the 1pm and 4pm slots, all I needed was less than 57.5 points in SNF and #TooManyLegs Week 13 would officially hit for the first time since week 7.
If you didn't watch a down of SNF and saw that the final score was 22-16 you may think "wow, Doz, that under was never in doubt".
Andy Reid did me and all other under backers a favor bigger than his baggy speedo mask by not challenging an incomplete pass that was actually a touchdown.
Even Tyreek Hill didn't realize he caught it. Had the touchdown counted, Kansas City would've been up 9 (likely 10 even thought Butker has missed 6 extra points this season)-3 with 10:51 left in the 2nd quarter. Instead they punted and the Broncos went on a 4:11 touchdown drive to take the lead.
Have you seen the Chiefs play football before? They score in bunches, putting up points like the pre-2019 NBA Finals Golden State Warriors. Who knows how differently the game goes if they get their swaggaaa back less than five minutes into the 2nd quarter? After this clearly missed challenge, it took the Chiefs almost 44 minutes to score their first touchdown of the game.
Ladies and gentlemen, that's how the Too Many Legs got to 5-7! Sunday we go for two straight. #HireDozo
