I lost my guests. I had Dallas last night. I don’t even know what the spread was. I know they want in the end the Dallas cover. Did they not?


Christian Horton  01:19

They did not cover. No, no. No.

Nestor J. Aparicio  01:23

I’m now one game over 500 I was two so that makes it 90 and 89. It’s convenient. NFL doesn’t play today. I have to wait until Sunday to go under 500. How are you?

Christian Horton  01:36

I’m good. I’m good. Like you said I had a really good week last week. 13 and three. I’m right there with you. I mean, you could put a loss on me I was with the Cowboys to cover it against Seattle. So I’m we’re even though we’re on one Buffon 113

Nestor J. Aparicio  01:49


and three What are you on the season has gone above 500 Oh, yeah,

Christian Horton  01:55

Nestor J. Aparicio  01:59

Furlong horse that just stop and short. You know, and a mile and a quarter? Yeah, I mean, yeah, like you’re just Well, is it week? 13? Is that week? I think it’s we 13 Is that correct? We 13 officially for the we might be week for tasty 14 Hold on when I will. How about the Ravens have played ravens are nine three and spy weeks. It’s 313. Right? I’m gonna look it up here on my on my app, because I’m a I’m gonna make my pigs Live This Week. It’s a little late. We usually make them earlier in the week. These aren’t going to run that long, because only gonna run Saturday and Sunday before the game. So this is going to be the week that I’m going to officially go under 500 All right, so I’ve already lost one on the Dallas game. Let’s start the pics here. Start the madness. Anything you want to say about the Ravens nearby week before we get going here because we’re not going to have them to pick at the end. Yeah, no,

Christian Horton  02:45

no, no, the ravens are the team to be in the AFC right now. You know, they want a lot of big games, you know b2b people. They really should be undefeated if you really think about it, you know they had the loss to the lions or not the lions, the tech who was at the Colts at the end they lost the Colts they lost the the Steelers the Steelers he had to give away games and then who was the other last two might have been the browns. The Browns Yes. Yeah, I’ll give away games you know they really should be undefeated. I’m really impressed with it with the ravens and what they’re doing on the season. So I have gotten nothing but good things I


Nestor J. Aparicio  03:13

try to forget the losses remember the victories? That’s what we do. Yeah. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a victory against you. It’s been about a month my picks been going into the into the circular crapper here. Alright, Broncos, Texans one o’clock game. These are both teams that I thought when the season started stunk. Now they’re both we’re at the point this season where they don’t stink matter of fact, they might be better than the bills of the Bengals or some of these other teams. is a three point spread at home for Houston, which tells me it’s a little pushy. I don’t know, Denver’s Come on. i There’s a feeling for me that I’m more inclined to pick either one of these teams, three teams that stinked that I am sort of becoming a little bit of a true believer in both of them. I’ll take Russell Wilson on the road with three points. I guess at this point, I thought I’ll take that. Yeah, no,

Christian Horton  03:57

no, I’m right there with you. I like I’m never also like you said this whole season you know, we’ve been doing this I’m a Big Sean Payton guy. You know, I thought he would bring the culture and the winning culture that he needed to to them and have Russell perform how he needs to so I’m gonna take the plus three also. The

Nestor J. Aparicio  04:13

Los Angeles chargers of San Diego soon to be in Frankfurt, Germany, go to New England to take on. You got patriots stuff on today. Not today. Where to work not only on game

Christian Horton  04:23

day, only on game days. Only on game days. Yes. Yeah. Only on game days. So that’s Thursdays Mondays and Sundays.

Nestor J. Aparicio  04:29

Keyboard Cam Newton jersey. My presence last week. We both had number ones on there. Yeah. Warren Moon going on. All right. So you’re taking the Patriots right.

Christian Horton  04:38

It’s tough to say unfortunately. I mean, I don’t want to but I’ll take it with the five points. I think they keep this game close and they cover and yeah, they I don’t think they win but I think they cover with the five.

Nestor J. Aparicio  04:48

I’m gonna take the Los Angeles chargers that I still like calling San Diego because it makes me feel nice, five and a half’s a lot, especially in New England. I mean, what’s the last time the New England Patriots are five and a half Point dogs at home to a West Coast team. That’s no good. Yeah,


Christian Horton  05:04

no, no, I don’t think ever. Yeah. checker.

Nestor J. Aparicio  05:08

Alright, I’m taking charges anyway, because I like losing. Lions and saints do this more responsibly than I do it. I’ve warned everybody. Lions at saints. Lions are four and a half point favorites at the dump. I’m Alliance believer. They don’t do well with spreads. They win games, but they have not been great with points. I’ll do the four and a half. And I’ll go all in this week on that when New Orleans.

Christian Horton  05:31

So you were in New Orleans on this. I know I’m with Detroit. Oh, you were Detroit right now. So I want New Orleans on this one. I’m just playing the home home field advantage. Like you said, taking the points. Yeah. I mean, Jared Goff struggling at this point, you know, he’s had a few weeks where he’s turned the ball over a lot. And I just liked the home the home of Valence, especially with the four you know, in New Orleans, so yeah, yeah. Give me New Orleans till now.

Nestor J. Aparicio  05:51


Amy, can you hear me from where she is and the Steelers are? Six point favorites at home against Arizona. I’m taking the Steelers. Okay. She’s giving me the Yeah, that means I’m definitely gonna lose six points. I’m spreading on Arizona. Arizona coming across good. There’s nothing to like about Arizona but the Steelers have Kenny Pickett and the Steelers play defense. The Steelers play second half football in close games, and they win close games. Six points is I mean for the Steelers. A lot of points. I don’t know Arizona. Arizona is gonna score on Sunday. But I will spread the six points. I’ll take Pittsburgh, okay. No,

Christian Horton  06:25

no, I’m gonna get you on this back in the loses like Arizona, you know, especially with the five and a half like I’m gonna Riverside with you. You know, I think the Steelers can’t score with it with the Cardinals. You know, Grant taking all

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:36

these points with these lousy teams. Or you got to you got to especially

Christian Horton  06:39

the highest spreads, you know, Pittsburgh’s not a touchdown favorite. Better than argue

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:44

with a guy that went 13 Three last week. Yeah, how am I going to tell you you’re wrong at this point.

Christian Horton  06:48

That’s just the way I view it. So I’m on I’m on the cartons with the plus five and a half.

Nestor J. Aparicio  06:52

We’re Christian Oregon. We’re in Hollywood casino up in Perry Ville. If you do this do this way better and more responsibly than I’ve been doing it lately and picking football games don’t do it this way. Pick a couple of games go low go slow figured out. I’m gonna rework this for next year I keep talking about because I’m still gonna pick every game from the radio part. But I want to like put some extra pro cream in my hair and have my five star special I want to handle I want to do a special Yeah, so I want to do all this is not my five star special. Falcons are a two point favorite on the road going to the Meadowlands to take on the hapless woeful but really well run according to Aaron Rodgers jets. I take the Falcons here I’ll spread the two points on the road with the jet I watched the Jets play last Friday it’s just they’re not very good and I don’t know that they would have been any good at theater and Rogers to be honest I think they will talk on all these judgments we would if we had if you had Aaron Rodgers you might have been eight nine you know literally that’s how I feel about that yeah,

Christian Horton  07:53

um There were team there were team the sort of Falcons but I’m gonna take the Jets at home with the plus two really just for the for the pedigree of the head coach. The defense is better than the Falcons but like you said it was a tough call I wouldn’t pick that I wouldn’t bet this game if I had money on it but I’m going to take the jets on this one

Nestor J. Aparicio  08:14

look you know official your little thing and I touch that yeah, he’s his official look. It’s on holiday like he’s got his pics all done.

Christian Horton  08:19

No wonder you’re starting to appear you know you’re

Nestor J. Aparicio  08:23

putting effort into this is what you’re doing. Tell me about what’s going on up here because we talked a lot about the casino and food and I talked about pie Gow poker lane. I don’t even know what it is. Yeah. Bacharach was a game on television when I was a kid. I don’t know. People, no sports. Anybody. Listen to us. There’s basketball games tonight. There’s hockey games tonight. There’s f1 Right? There’s all sorts of things and UFC. Things you can wager on things people do wage run. Outside of just football, college football, right people come up here put a bet or all sorts stuff,


Christian Horton  08:53

right? No, no, the golf tennis. We had NASCAR a lot of NASCAR bets on when that was going on. And I’m right now for the sports book. And so it’s a great time. You know, it’s the busiest season you know, we have college football, NBA, NFL, college football just wrapping up. So we have a lot of different things and it’s exciting for us. We you know, just like tonight, you know, we’re very busy. The casinos always always busy and you’re

Nestor J. Aparicio  09:16

waiting for North North Dakota State football game. Is

Christian Horton  09:19

that anything? Yeah, and guys bet all different things. I

Nestor J. Aparicio  09:23


was coming here today and a guy who talked about North Dakota State football without mentioning Carson Wentz as an example. Yeah, I just did that.

Christian Horton  09:29

Even even today like I was talking to guest guest but I’m copying versus UMBC yesterday. You know what I mean? Like just having those conversations like that. Like I said, it’s it’s a tight knit group here but we do a lot

Nestor J. Aparicio  09:42

sir I’m this close to taking Joe Flacco to lead the Cleveland Browns. That’s gonna happen in this segment. I swear to God, it’s gonna happen. All right, Indianapolis Colts at the Tennessee Titans. To one point spread right now Indianapolis on the road in Tennessee. I’ll tell Get the cold sight I mean I guess what the points but I give the point to Tennessee. I was on Tennessee earlier in the year I guess that Euler weekend where he threw the you know it’s like they gotta they don’t have a running game I mean yeah

Christian Horton  10:15

but like I said a little bit last time this is not a game I will personally bet on put money on but if you’re gonna force me I’m gonna take Tennessee really just off the pedigree of being home I like Mike Grable as as a coach will ever still figuring it out. But I’m I’m gonna stick it out with Tennessee, especially with the plus one that I


Nestor J. Aparicio  10:31

don’t know your six games over 500 You’re ahead of me. I’m tracking I got my eye on you. And have we made the same pic yet? Who would we? We both took Atlanta, didn’t we?

Christian Horton  10:40

No, no, no, I got it. I didn’t take a lien on that one.

Nestor J. Aparicio  10:43

So you took the chance as a Jets. You took Tennessee? Yep. Did you take Pittsburgh? And then I take Pittsburgh, Arizona. You took New Orleans because I know you don’t like to wait. Yep. You took New England because why not? And Houston Denver.

Christian Horton  10:56


We got Denver on that one. All right. So

Nestor J. Aparicio  10:59

you didn’t take Denver? Okay. All right. So, man, somebody’s gonna be crying. Somebody’s phone’s gonna be blown up at 415 on Sunday. I promise you that. All right. So at four or less one o’clock in Miami and Washington commanders I’m gonna lay the nine and a half just so I can root for the dolphins you know, okay.

Christian Horton  11:18

Okay, no, I like the command is on this one. The dolphins don’t perform well on the road. You know, they haven’t won many games or are covered many games on the road. So I like like the commander especially at home. It’s a little cold you know, in in DC this weekend. So um, I don’t think Miami just adjusted as well. To the told

Nestor J. Aparicio  11:36

Yeah, close Jack Del Rio and IR No, no, Jaco Riona are close and least before he lost his mind talking about the Washington cops which I sent him a text and but we’ve been close for 25 years, right. Yeah. So that’s Jack Del Rio stories. One of the best stories I got actually. Flew, managed saved my wife’s life came to America in 2016. And we took him on this surprise trip all over the country. And we he wanted he loves Steph Curry loves the NBA. Yeah. And but he loves not Christian Laettner. What’s the saying? Dirk Levitsky? Sorry. So, the Dallas Mavericks, he’s German? Yeah, they’re playing on the West Coast. We flew out to Oakland and Jack Del Rio. I said, Hey, Jack, I the guy saved my wife’s life. I’m gonna bring him out. He’s like, Oh, upbringing by the facility. This is where Rob Woodson comes in framing. So Rob was their defensive backs coach at the time. Mike Tice was offensive coordinator for that team. They had just beaten the Denver Broncos bad like Peyton Manning Bronco team. Good Bronco team beat him bad in Mexico City. And maybe maybe man, he was gone there now, man, he was there. So it was a rah rah room. I’m trying to think who was it? Derek Carr was the quarterback at the time. Khalil Mack was there. So we went out to the facility in Oakland, which is long gone. The whole thing’s gone. That’s how long it’s been. So I get there in the morning, Jack’s like, alright, so you’re gonna dress the team, right? I’m like, what? I’m gonna do what he’s like, no, no, no, you’re I’m gonna get you up for the team. You’re gonna tell him the story because we’re gonna get them all swab today, right? Because we were swabbing for the bone marrow registry there. Right. By the way, Eric Sauer was going to stop by today from there goes my hero but couldn’t make it but so my wife had her life saved through DNA on the tip of a cute tip from a young guy like you saving lives. So Jack wants me to tell the heartwarming story. So I had to he introduced me it’s all video go watch. It introduced me in front of the whole team in the team meeting room all these years with Bill at hardball, Marvin, I’d never been in a team meeting room with a meetings going on. Other than hard knocks, you see, you know, TV, you know the classroom setting. I went into that room and gave a six minute. What happened to my wife this guy saved my wife’s life Jack and I’ve been friends for years. And we swapped 41 Oakland Raiders that day. Wow. cluding Derek Carr so I I feel bad about picking against the the


Christian Horton  13:57

saints. Yeah, okay. Yeah, there Carson. Quarterback. Yeah, gotcha. All right.

Nestor J. Aparicio  14:01

There were actually some guys are collecting assemble a god swab that day. He was a raven. And then there was there was one player who was a tackle. Who played on that team. They can’t play through ravens, the man who got swapped that day, and he walks to the Ravens locker room like 2017 or 18. He’s like, I know you man. Man. You’re the one with the wife and Jack and you were there. Aaron Moses name is alignment. Anyway. We’re up here in Hollywood. Meandering I’m Chris Christian weren’t here. One o’clock game last one o’clock game. I’m I’m taking the picking against the commander’s in protest to them firing Jack Del Rio about that. Okay. All right. So that makes sense. For Jack. Jack. You know, you’re really wrong about the DC cops. You’re wrong about everything you watch with Fox News 405 Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s a five point game here. I mean, Baker Mayfield is about it. Somebody called him a journeyman quarterback. The other day and I thought that’s what he is. I mean literally I heard him call that on the, on the postgame Sunday one of the TVs, well Baker Mayfield to journeyman quantum it had been like sims or somebody’s been somebody like legitimate calling him that and I’m like, Yeah, I mean, if you’re a Bucs fan is senior quarterback next year?

Christian Horton  15:19

I think he’s, I think he’s performed well this season. 100% Okay, yeah.

Nestor J. Aparicio  15:24


You think you’re gonna win a Super Bowl with no, no, I

Christian Horton  15:25

didn’t say that. I’d say what I’d be okay with him being the quarterback.

Nestor J. Aparicio  15:28

Overall, though, like can do? Yeah, no, no,

Christian Horton  15:32

and I think a change of scenery helps people. I don’t think he’s gonna win your Super Bowl. No, no, of course not. But I think he might lead into playoffs. He’s okay. He’s in the top 15 of quarterbacks in the NFL right now, which is hard to do.


Nestor J. Aparicio  15:44

I would trade Lamar Jackson for Oh, no. Lamar

Christian Horton  15:46

is in the top five. You know, there’s tears you know, and I like Baker Mayfield I think he’s averaged we’ll

Nestor J. Aparicio  15:54

talk about chaos standard Washington, despite the new owners and firing coordinators. I don’t know what the Panthers are, right?

Christian Horton  16:01


Yeah, no, no, no, they’re they’re, they’re a dumpster fire for sure. You know, they don’t know what to do. And that’s just leadership. You know, where it starts from the GM to the coach, they always have to be on the same page of who, well, they’re always getting fired because the auditor somebody’s doing I never know what the how that goes. You know, like, they only get two years to do it. And it’s like, they already have a dumpster fire ever team. What do you think is gonna happen in the next two years? And then they get fired? And the same thing? Very weird. I don’t we

Nestor J. Aparicio  16:26

fire my boy, Frank Reich, who you know, yes. A tarp? Yeah. You know, like, so there’s a point for me, we’re like, why would you fire I mean, he’s competent, let him finish the season Don’t be

Christian Horton  16:38

what’s going to be different between a guy that comes in and me now and what he’s doing

Nestor J. Aparicio  16:42

really speaks to how insane the ownership is. So I’m here with you today as an ex Patriot immediate. I used to be in the real media. Yeah, for like 38 years. So I Chad steel decided I’m not a real media member. So they threw me out two years ago. And what they did this week in Carolina, is indicative of what would happen if you stay in Carolina Panthers fire their coach, the actual owner, and we haven’t seen Steve Ashati he’s like, you know, he’s like a mystery man. Now he doesn’t show up for anything. He doesn’t live here. But the Carolina Panthers owner, tapper, who’s really wealthy, bought the team’s firing all these coaches. He had a press conference on Monday. She has a press conference. The columnist in the Charlotte Observer sits in the front row, as like Arnold horshack. It’s a little old for you Welcome Back, Kotter. Somebody got my horshack reference. It’s got his arm up, oh, then I’ll call on him to ask a question or the owner. See, when you get a press pass, and you get invited in, the owner tells the PR people don’t call on him. And you don’t get to ask a question that these places are wacky. And I guess that’s what I’m saying with the Carolina Panthers. Like if this is the way you’re going to behave on Monday, firing your coach like Ursi last year hiring a former senator off the television. What are you doing? Like how are you gonna win a football game? Your your, your joke, you’re not like a real organization. If you’re frying Frank Reich on Monday and your owner sits up and can’t even be accountable. Like to your your point, what difference would make or the general manager the coach is going to be at that point. So that being said, I’m taking Baker Mayfield this week. What about you? Yeah, no, I’m


Christian Horton  18:20

on Baker Mayfield too. I’m not a big fan of the camera on the Panthers this year and I think like I said they’re just a bad team. Especially going on the road and I like Tampa Bay.

Nestor J. Aparicio  18:30

I’m taking Tampa Bay too. So he starts in three last week Christian Orton up here in Hollywood casino so whatever he says, listen to him. All right, this is where it gets tough because for me to pick the Browns I need to know that Joe Flacco is gonna be the quarterback that’d be the answer not this PJ kid and all this. They’ve been dancing around all week. I never thought anybody looked good Browns gear but Joe had a little swag about him you know Joe looked a little fiddly get a little pep in his step. I don’t know I I love Joe I’m biased about that. So I hate the Browns I’m not unbiased about that. I don’t know three and a half points we got the Rams next week maybe the Browns can soften them up for us. Certainly the Browns play defense and that defense is going to travel well there is a there’s a reason to take three and a half points here so maybe just a half I want to take Cleveland three and a half to take Cleveland less that PJ guy starts and then I’m gonna be part of the Browns they stink.

Christian Horton  19:18

No, I’m with the Rams on this one. I don’t care if Joe Flacco was out there. PJ Yeah. I just like him just a pedigree of being home better coach team like I’m I’m a big fan of Aaron Donnell I say it every weekend he can wreak wreak havoc in a getaway Mata

Nestor J. Aparicio  19:33


BK is doing a really good Aaron Donald impersonation for the Ravens they Okay, he’s gonna get paid, dude. Okay. And I believe laying that kind of I believe it. Yeah. And that’s when you start to compare people to Aaron Donnell. You’re like it’s different level right there. Okay. Donald is the best defensive player of the century. I mean, I would put that up against Ray Lewis, I would put that up against Wow. Or lacquer. I’m trying I’m trying to think of the people that played in this century this century. Polamalu and read I mean any the guys that sack the quarterback? That’s one thing there’s no Aaron Donald doesn’t have a comparable rate Louis has some comparables yeah Khalil Mack I mean we’re just kids doing now row quants with and you can make an array was better than them in the same way Jim Brown was better than most of the other you know I mean arrays array Yeah, but Aaron Donald when you’re talking about the next guy that’s like Aaron Donnell I don’t know No no there’s no there’s no history to game you’re gonna go back maybe Warren Sapp or like some of the guys different kinds of position. Yeah but Aaron Donald’s the greatest ever played that position

Christian Horton  20:36

I agree. I do agree and that’s an amazing we’re seeing

Nestor J. Aparicio  20:39

an amazing thing and we don’t talk about it because it’s not sexy. I mean he’s a defensive lineman, he doesn’t have commercials and all that, you know, he doesn’t have Sarah gooses personality. He’s not. Yeah, he’s not being like Tom Brady. Yeah, you know, but I mean, he’s been as good as Tom Brady. As for his position, isn’t

Christian Horton  20:57

it? Yeah, I agree. I will say that. Yeah. So that’s what that’s what I’m on. Right. I

Nestor J. Aparicio  21:01

covered him in the Senior Bowl. Aaron, Donald. So Aaron Donald. This is a real tribute to Phil savage. All right. Point one was written Phil. Phil ran the Senior Bowl after he got fired with the browns. He’s now a jet scout. He works for Joe Douglas, who he hired. He gave Joe a job when he was a kid Joe gave him a job when So Phil did the Senior Bowl Dan immobile and this was right after my wife got sick, I think are right before 14. So just before so went down to the 1414 Senior Bowl was being coached by Gus Bradley, on the one side and I’m trying to think who the other coach was. But Aaron Donnell was the best player they had there. And he was also the grown up and a guy that when they welcomed the media, and when they said, Welcome to the Senior Bowl, we have great players here. And Aaron Donald got up and gave a little speech about why he came to the Senior Bowl. And I was there in the room for that and it was a lot of media there. Even then, I mean, senior bowls in the drafts a big deal scouting, combine all that stuff going on. Aaron, Donald was the grown up in the room and Phil savage said to me that day he’s like, get Aaron Donald on the show. He’s gonna be a great, great player. He’s gonna be the best player in that class. Here’s what he told me. And sure enough, here we are. He’s right. You know all these years later, a decade later, Aaron Donald so you’re taking the Rams I’m taking the browns. Man, I’ve taken the browns. I’ve taken the Steelers. What’s wrong with me? What is God making sushi is what? You never would have done this at the bar and back in the 90s it’s money here I’m playing for money is what I’m doing. I’m playing responsibly. Best Game of the Week. 40 Niners and eagles. What are the best games of the season? Right I mean like literally right right up the road here. Three point favorite on the road for the 40. Niners Bucha 14 obviously had a lot of respect. They’ve earned it Eagles not getting a lot of respect I guess because they haven’t won one big whatever. scuffled around kicking around with the bills whatever. You got three on this game. What do you got on this game?

Christian Horton  23:05

Wow, I got three on this game and when you said it, I thought this I thought the Eagles would be favored. I didn’t know they wouldn’t be favored at home. I’m gonna change this one. I’m gonna go the Eagles. Look at this on this one. I read it wrong. Did you I read it right. Well, my reading and writer would think the 40 Niners would be favored against the Super Bowl champion

Nestor J. Aparicio  23:23

well because it will be Niners runner up no disrespect to the Ravens the 40 Niners have been the team that’s played the three phases of the game the best thus far.

Christian Horton  23:32

Yeah, I mean, it’s just a weird number. Especially Eagles coming off a win against buffalo that that’s that’s my thing on it, but I’m gonna take the eagles on this one.

Nestor J. Aparicio  23:40

I’m gonna take the eagles on this one too. How about that? Don’t tell anybody. You get Eagles fans up here plenty.

Christian Horton  23:45

Oh 100%. Yeah, Eagles fans.

Nestor J. Aparicio  23:47

Yeah. In the parking lot and I I did a big segment with Tommy Conwell from the young rumbles big Philadelphia band. They’re playing the record on Saturday night by the time you hear this, you may come on out it’s good time. And I had Tommy when I was talking to him because this is the third time I’ve been over the bridge in the last couple of weeks. And I can get w MMR from here. I listened to Philadelphia radio on the parking lot. So should not shock me that somebody would come in here wearing a Kelsey Johnson


Christian Horton  24:14

No, no, no, no, I’m not 100 I mean, 100% Yeah, no, yeah, eagles. I would say it’s more Eagles fans and Ravens fans in this area. I would say

Nestor J. Aparicio  24:24

shame on they don’t look as good either. Not that black and gold or that green. Well though the Eagles have throwbacks for good the other night.

Christian Horton  24:31

I fell asleep. I watched a game and have

Nestor J. Aparicio  24:34


a Cunningham’s they’re wearing. Like green? Yeah,

Christian Horton  24:37

okay. Okay. I did I didn’t notice it. Because it was raining and I didn’t I didn’t one of my

Nestor J. Aparicio  24:40

Eagles fans. It’s not lime green. That’s Putri green. That’s baby puke green. Yeah, it’s got a name.

Christian Horton  24:47

Okay. So good for screen. Not for us. Um, but.


Nestor J. Aparicio  24:51

So I was a season ticket holder for the Eagles from 1986 to 1992. Yeah, that’s the jersey they wore okay. It was the whole random Connie and Reggie White gangrene Yeah. Jerome Brown. Baldy was on those teams. Yeah, that was that was good fun up there at the vet. Good time. Okay, nice people those Philadelphia Eagles fans. Do you see the video that poor guy wearing the cowboy Jersey in the middle the Eagles fans that showed up? Christian horns here he is the sports manager for all things Hollywood casino in Perry Ville. We’re up here. We’re gonna have a crab cake at some point. We’re going to be promoting a beautiful Cecil County group the Chesapeake feline Association, including my cat. We have all the cool cats out here picking the games. I did not pick these at a time I’m just picking on the fly here because what difference does it make at this point? chiefs and the Packers a 20 game decent game? I don’t know if the Packers are coming on or not. I mean six points here at home the Chiefs people a little down on the Chiefs right now they’re down everybody but the Ravens the Eagles and 40 Niners right, shoot holes and all the other 29 teams I guess at this point, I’m not gonna shoot a hole on the chiefs. So I’m gonna take the six points lay it on the road. Big TV game, you know, I think this is the time of the year with the chiefs. If they’re going to be the chiefs and they’re going to be formidable in January. They’re gonna have a switch. Okay, you’re gonna have a switch.

Christian Horton  26:15

I’m gonna get you on this one. I’m gonna Greenbay I’m writing this Greenbrae wave. I was with them on Thanksgiving. I had them upset and who do they who do they put the lions? The Lions Yeah. And so I’m gonna ride away with them especially at home. I’m gonna take the six I don’t think I don’t necessarily think they win but I think they cover the spread man

Nestor J. Aparicio  26:30

you and I are just we’re almost on every single game together. I’m really worried. I mean I took Baker Mayfield just to feed make you feel good because you liked him so much but Monday night the Bengals without adding they’re called My McCarran now right the Bengals against the Jacksonville Jaguars we get the Jaguars in two weeks. I’ll be watching this one. I mean, I’m watching all these teams that we’re playing whether it’s rams, jaguars, 40, Niners we’re gonna see the dolphins in a couple of weeks as well. I’m taking the Jaguars I’ll spread the 9.8 I just think the Bengals their DNA is an organization where they are without borough fail I think they’re a bad team without borough and I think a bad team is gonna lose by 10 points. Yeah, no,

Christian Horton  27:15


no, I’m right there with you. I think they kind of pack it in there and they know what their season is gonna be at the end, you know, necessarily not in the playoffs so um, I like Jacksonville to tumble and pretty bad here. So I like a day and a half.

Nestor J. Aparicio  27:28

Jacksonville. You know, you’re sketchy. I never know what I’m getting out

Christian Horton  27:32

of there. Hit or miss. Definitely hit or miss a young you know what I mean? Let’s expect it. Well, our friends at the Maryland lottery

Nestor J. Aparicio  27:37

did a big big ravens giveaway this year, and the top prize. The top prize is $20,000 really the top prize you can win tickets for life. And they did a giveaway for the Jacksonville trip so we have some lucky winners they’re gonna be on the team plane going down to Jacksonville for that game. So we’ll see how that turns out ravens Rompuy week I’m not on by week I’ve had extra extra crabcakes all week long. We began the week Pappas last week with Christian began earlier this week over Coco’s with Marcela had great guests there with microcytic Liano and Ron Cassie for Baltimore magazine. On Thursday, we went to the BMA and the gertrudes had John shields on ahead for different kinds of crabcakes had a great conversation with Dan Rodricks about his show, Baltimore, you have no idea. And right now we’re up here at Hollywood casino in Perryville. Having fun, lots of bands, big New Year’s Eve up here with the journey band and a YouTube band. Lots of ways to win. Lots of ways to play lots of fun and just 20 minutes from home for most folks out there to get on up here. Get yourself a pen play card. And don’t beat this guy over to sports book. It takes some of his money pick against the Patriots and make him angry. Come in here no picking against her for the Rams. A question for you with ravens in this search. You get people coming in saying 100 bucks on the ravens and win a Super Bowl 100 bucks they’re able to get to the Super Bowl because the odds on the ravens are going down


Christian Horton  28:54

100% I’ve gone down I’m not we had we had a lot of at the beginning of the season and you’ll

Nestor J. Aparicio  28:59

see a team where they were you getting a nice number on 21

Christian Horton  29:03

to one around around that around that mark and which where are we now? We’re probably I can’t lay a number on it but if I had to guess 8181621 in that range Yeah, yeah, I’m because they’re the best team in the AFC right now in my eyes. You know, they have one of the best records. I don’t know what they how they measure versus Kansas City. But I would think they’re

Nestor J. Aparicio  29:23


at the end of the weekend. Depends on who wins and loses. Yeah, the last column is three. Okay, yeah. Threes, one, nine and three. Yeah, we’ll see. Okay, yeah.

Christian Horton  29:30

So let’s see how it goes. But um, I like the Ravens. Like I said, I’d like him to come out the UFC. I mean, I shouldn’t say that. When I said it. I kind of went back on it. You got to see what happens with the mark Andrews is Isaiah likely steps up. Kind of who replaced

Nestor J. Aparicio  29:42

Stanley I mean, all the way up here late Luke and Dennis we’re talking 20 minutes about and I remember what Stanley went down a couple years ago. I said boy, if they can’t win the Superbowl without him. I felt that way. In 1920 21 I don’t know I mean, Humphrey, but they have so many better players. Cole Hamilton ro Quan Smith pay these guys have all stepped up in other ways. That would have made them great had they had JK Dobbins had they had Mark Andrews had if they had healthy Marlon Humphrey, but they don’t right now and that’s the health part of all this. Hey, something happens to Kelsey. Right? I mean, sometimes the mahomes Look at the bangles. Yeah, yeah. I mean, the bills haven’t even taken on that kind of an injury. We’ve had a confidence and perception problem with it, right? Yeah. Yeah. So I mean, that’s December football. Get on up here to Hollywood casino you can play the games you can play on your app as well.
