The above picture, displaying just coins, represents a meager victory this weekend, but a victory nonetheless. Let’s review.
Record for the Week = 7-6 or 7/13 correct or 53.8% correct
Room for Improvement:
Kansas State -6.5 @ Iowa State (-110)
Baylor -3.5 @ Texas (-110)
Miami -2 @ Notre Dame (-110)
Eastern Michigan -7 vs. Miami of Ohio (-110)
Seattle -2.5 @ Saints (-110)
Minnesota -6 @ Chicago (-110)
Big 12, you’re killing me smalls. Other than that, a trend here is to be careful taking favorites when they are on the road. Also, Jay Cutler proved me to be wrong as he was very sharp in his return on MNF.
Utah +10 @ Washington (-110)
San Diego State U -5.5 @ Utah State (-110)
Nebraska +9 @ Wisconsin (-110)
Oakland +1.5 @ Tampa Bay (-110)
Patriots -6.5 @ Buffalo (-110)
Denver -5.5 vs. Chargers (-110)
Dallas -4.5 vs. Philadelphia (-110)
The NFL picks fared much better this week. Partly due to the fact that Oakland and Dallas were bailed out with OT victories. Big shoutout to Utah and Nebraska for being tough opponents, falling short in the game, but covering the spread. Lastly, each week I hesitate to take the Patriots as big favorites on the road, but each week it pays off. Ride ’em until they fail you (looking at you Vikings).
