    Mrs. P and I decided to get away, to go back to L'Auberge for some rest and relaxation this weekend. She works on Saturday but we both were able to get off on Monday so we're shifting our usual local run back one day and will be heading to L'Auberge on Saturday, and returning on Monday.

    Sept 14th - Sept 16th: L'Auberge, Lake Charles, LA.

    No REAL plans except for a couple's massage on Sunday. We'll eat, drink, play some VP and slots and hopefully have a lot of slot and VP porn to show you when this weekend is done.

    After this trip I've got to fly out to a work conference in Tulsa, that happens to be located at the River Spirit casino. How could I say no to that?

    Sept 17th - Sept 20th: River Spirit Casino, Tulsa, OK.

    This will be a solo work trip, with a lot of conferences during the day and (hopefully) some straight gambling at night. The LAST time I was at River Spirit was also for a conference, and I wrecked shop there, hitting a royal, and several premium quads, some with multipliers. When all was said and done I think I left with a profit of around $4000, which probably means that I'm going to dump some of that back in this time but, you never know.

    Either way, I hope that I have something in these border states that's picture worthy, and not just artistic shots of meeting rooms etc. Over the first weekend the food should be good anyway. At least we have that. We;ll start the trip with some pre-trip Vegas Vacation tonight, and hopefully some sports betting on Thursday, dinner on Friday at our local joint and then hitting the road on Saturday.

    A good warm-up, for me, for our October Vegas trip, hopefully pad the bank-roll.

    Sports betting stuff: College Football This is from the Blog

    1. Washington State (-9) vs. Houston [-340 & +280] {O/U 74}

    This game is being played at NRG Stadium, so while it's not really a home game for Houston it is played in Houston. This helps the Coogs but probably does not detract from the Cougs as much as many people think. The home field advantage is pretty strong for Houston in the Tillman, not so much at NRG, where the overall size, and acoustics, make the crowd seem quieter. I like Wazzu here, but not enough to give them the nod. I think the play in this game is on the number.

    Predication: Wazzu 52 Houston 40 OVER 74

    2. Kansas State @ Mississippi State (-8) [+260 & -330] {O/U 52}

    IF Bill Snyder was still the coach of K-State I'd give them a serious look, but this is now Chris Klieman's team and I'm not sure whether the shock of not being at North Dakota State has fully enveloped him or not. I think the Bulldogs are good, and have the potential to be very good. We're gong to see a little bit rather I'm correct on that assumption here.

    Prediction: Kansas State 7 Mississippi State 24 MSU to COVER -8 (I also like the UNDER here but that's not a FIVE pick)

    3. Georgia State @ Western Michigan (-8.5) [+260 & -330] {O/U 69.5}

    One thing I like about funny week 1 results is that they can cause some weird line ripple effects that, while diminishing over time, don't really go away until the end of the season because the public can't quite get that huge upset fully out of their minds. I think this is the case here based on my analytics.

    Prediction: Georgia State 10 Western Michigan 42 Western Michigan to cover -8.5

    4. TCU (-2.5) @ Purdue [-145 +125] {O/U 51.5]

    This is one of those games that you initially look at and say "pass" until you start forgetting all of your pre-conceived notions from the past on these two teams and just evaluate them in the moment. My numbers say the line is about right, but I'm looking at the total here. I think it's low.

    Prediction: TCU 38 Purdue 42 OVER 51.5

    5. Hawai'i @ Washington (-21.5) [+1000 & -2000] {O/U 58.5}

    Another case where I hate the number, although there could be some Hawai'i value there, and focus instead on the number. Yes, Washington has a good defense but no one has fully stopped the Rainbow Warrior's Run N' Shoot yet. Love the Over here.

    Prediction: Hawai'i 28 Washington 42 OVER 58.5

    Just set that sweet "Out of Office" message saying that I'll be out until September 23rd.

    Don't call me, I'll call you. (when I get back)

    Thank yo very much. I know I'll have a great time with Mrs. P this weekend.

    The conference will be OK too. Just amazed that a bunch of accountants picked a casino.

    Toughest part of any trip. Leaving these two behind. But we have to because Charlo keeps doubling down when he has 12 or 13.

    Small trip. Smallish bankroll.

    Still obligatory though. 20190914_154330.jpg 20190914_154611.jpg
