    Purplepat's Wagers for Week 8

    OK, I really took a big hit last week. With the bankroll greatly depleted, time to scale back. This one is a Viking fan "can't lose" proposition:

    3 TEAM PARLAY - BET $20 TO WIN $233.29 (PROFIT + RETURNED BET)

    GB -2.5 @ WAS
    DET to win @ DAL
    PIT to win at home vs NE

    The Packers and Lions games are both 1:00 games, while the Steelers game is at 4:15. If I pick the two early games correctly (or it looks like they'll finish that way), I'll consider laying a $21 hedge bet on the Patriots to cover the -3 spread.

    If I lose one of the two early games, well then I'm only out $20 and that probably means either the Packers or Lions lost, so as a Vikings fan I'm still coming out ahead in some way!

    For some diehard Viking fans out there who don't mind risking some money, betting on the Giants to win this week is another "no-lose" proposition. The money line on the Giants is +250, so you'd win $25 ($35 considering you get your bet back) for every $10 you bet on the Giants to win. So if you want to guarantee that the Vikings win this weekend, go put some money on the Giants money line. Vikings win, hey you're out some dough, but the Vikes are 6-1. If the Giants pull the upset, you make some good money.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    And then take all your winnings and put it on the 49ers for Sunday nights game! This is the week to rebound from last week!
