    ***goblizz's Sports Picks and Discussion***
    Quick Link: http://bit.ly/23PXKwc
    Over time, I have become a huge sports fan. I enjoy watching the NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB, and NCAA Men's Basketball. I've also always enjoyed picking sports games, studying the stats, and watching the development of teams and players in each of the major North American sports leagues. So, in order to chronicle this picking process as well as discuss sports games, I have created this thread!

    Some FAQs:

    What is the purpose of this thread?
    - This thread is meant to be a place where I can keep track of my correct and incorrect sports picks. Often, I have a hard time remembering if I picked an underdog, a favorite, or when the game happened, so this thread is there for that. Plus, maybe you can find some benefit for sportsbook (as that's where I base the games I pick) ;)

    Is there any cost for picks?
    - Nope, not at all. Since I'm merely collecting my thoughts on sports games and sharing them with the community, they will be free.

    What else is this good for besides picks?
    - This thread is also meant for discussion. Say you disagree with my opinion; feel free to voice it - in a considerate manner of course! I'm just doing this for the fun of watching and picking sports games. It's up to the individual to take it as they wish :)

    Some of the games aren't in sportsbook!?
    - I understand :) But sometimes, I elect to pick games outside of sportsbook for their novelty values rather than for someone to make money!

    Basically, you can use this thread how you want to; this is just my tracking source. Hopefully you can find some benefit! Happy picking! :)

    TD Scorers
    Luke Kuechly - $8,000 - 10/1
    Greg Olsen - $2,800 - 10/14
    CJ Anderson - $2,800 - 10/14
    Demaryius Thomas - $1,400 - 10/14
    Cam Newton - $1,600 - 10/16
    Emmanuel Sanders - $1,400 - 10/14
    Ted Ginn Jr - $6,000 - 1/1

    Scores
    Over 7.5 (First Quarter) - $4,800 - 10/16
    Panthers -0.5 (Second Quarter) - $1,600 - 10/16
    Panthers -3 (First Half) - $1,600 - 10/16
    Broncos +0.5 (Fourth Quarter) - $3,400 - 10/17
    Over 44.5 - $2,800 - 10/14
    Panthers ML - $11,800 - 100/295

    Those are my bets for the Super Bowl this afternoon. Looks like goblizz and I agree on a fair amount of things :p

    For the TD scorers, I can definitely see Greg Olsen catching one, as he's the main big pass weapon for the Panthers. Cam runs one in from five yards out as well, Ted Ginn Jr will either catch one or return a kickoff, and Luke Kuechly is my power pick for the day. I can envision him picking off a shaky Peyton Manning in the first quarter and taking it back 30 yards for a TD.

    On the Broncos side of the ball, CJ Anderson is gonna have to be utilized well against the Panthers; I believe he breaks a few runs loose in the second half, including a TD run.

    For the scores, I predict a 34-23 Panthers win, and a 24-6 lead at halftime. The Panthers, as they almost always have this season, will have a big first half, scoring 14 in the first quarter. The Broncos, losing in the 4th quarter but with the game still in reach, will likely have a much better second half, as Manning gives his all in a last effort to win; they outscore the Panthers in the 4th, but still lose by 11.

    I'll work on it ;)

    Might put in a few picks tonight. I'll probably add in a March Madness bracket and playoff series picks as they approach, and maybe do some baseball WS future picks.

    As NFL and NHL seasons begin to approach their respective starts again, this thread deserves a bump. As the seasons begin, I will be doing this again! :D
