Toledo loses game, dollars for the cure.

Did anyone find it beyond strange that the Toledo Rockets trotted out their pink breast cancer uniforms last night?  That’s 21 days past Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the ostensible reason for the wretched excess of form over substance that the uniform game has turned into.  The shpiel here was that the game jerseys would be auctioned off and something winds...

#CheddarBay Week 13: Brady +2.5 vs. Manning.

Links to this weeks lines here. All-play:  Broncos -2.5 at Pats; Sunday 8:30. . Alternate title: CB#13, The Salty Edition. If this feeling seems familiar that’s because it is.  I don’t mean in a landmark devastating “Drive/Fumble/RR88” way.  I mean in an “it happens three times a year to Cleveland fans, that moment when you snap back into the reality...

Browns over Bengals today.

This was going to be a simple comment inside the Cheddar thread and it morphed into a mini-post.  Here’s what I’m looking at in today’s Browns/Bengals game. I am trying very hard not to be influenced by my fandom nor current 32-8 Cheddar lean to the Browns on this pick.  The second is easy since the public is 63% with...

#CheddarBay Week 12: Browns at Bengals.

Click for weekly lines. Allplay:  Browns +5.5 at Bengals, 1pm Sunday, CBS. Of course the All Play is Browns-Bengals this week.  Lookit.  I know some of you don’t see Browns-Bengals as game of the week and a lot of you don’t want to be forced to bet on or against your rooting team.  I hear you.  BUT.  This really is...

CB#11, Bama over LSU.

My CheddarBay essay is bit more graphical than DISQUS likes so posting here. BGSU (win) Oregon (loss) ***@Bama -11.5 LSU “God has made us for civilizing the world.  Woe and death to all who resist my will.” –Nick Saban Haha, just kidding that was Kaiser Wilhelm II.  But we are under a 4 TD spread at Tuscaloosa, thus Bama covers....

#CheddarBay Week 11: Oregon at Stanford on THURSDAY. Look alive.

Wednesday update All-play line is:  Oregon -10 at Stanford. Weekly point spreads are linked here. Posting early this week due to the Thursday night all play game, Oregon at Stanford.  We’ll use the usual Wednesday morning lines; I’ll update this post and the standings with the lines link tomorrow morning and I’ll tweet it as well.  (FYI, the line is Oregon...

Browns to top Ravens.

I don’t normally do previews but I have several thoughts on this game.  The bettor in me is trying like hell to lean Ravens and the Browns fan in me is screaming that that’s the smart play.  But in the filtering, I keep coming back to the Browns +2.5 at home over the loathsome Ravens. Ravens’ offensive line mess. Keleche...

#CheddarBay Week 10: Ravens -2.5 at Browns.

. We’re coming back to Cleveland for this week’s all-play and it’s a worthy game.  The Browns actually, somehow, are playoff contenders if they beat Baltimore and Baltimore is beat-able.  They’re coming off a bye and have yet to score an impressive win.  Browns meanwhile start a QB better than Brandon Weeden (Are we not all amazed at how bad...

Disqus problems reported.

I’ve received at least a half dozen emails concerning problems with the new Disqus comment system; that means there’s a problem. 1.  My guess on cause: I upgraded WordPress to 3.7 (a new release) yesterday.  If the problems persist, I will explore whether I can revert. 2.  My troubleshooting: Led me to this page.  I’m working through disabling these themes and...

#CheddarBay Week 9: Toledo +3.5 at BGSU. #MACtion!

*****LATE LINE:  COLO ST -4 AT HAWAI’I***** If there’s one MACtion game deserving of your attention and of Cheddar’s All-Play designation, it’s this one.  Acknowledged by Hustle Belt as the MAC’s Best Rivalry, The Peace Pipe, oh sorry, The Battle of I-75 (are you kidding me?) goes back to 1919.  Toledo leads 18-15.  If that doesn’t sound like a lot...
