2017 “Big Game” Pick

Apologies for not updating this sooner…been a crazy 10 days out in Vegas doing prop betting. Believe it or not, we do have a play–well, it’s officially going to have to be a lean, but if you can price shop, it’s good enough to be an “Other Play”. We make the Patriots a 4.7-point favorite (and…

2017 NFL Divisional Picks

We didn’t have a single official pick last week–we did have a lean on Seattle, which won–but unfortunately, for the seconds straight week, we don’t see much value on sides. In fact, three of the four games are within a tenth of a point of the market. For those of you who really want SOMETHING to…

2017 NFL Wildcard Picks

  Rufus sends his greetings from Havana. He also sends our take on the weekend via text message (apparently not all communists countries are good with computers)… Finished off a dismal NFL regular season with our best week of the season (by a mile), going 5-1 on our official plays, and losing our one lean…

2016 NFL Week 17

As usual, this year’s Week 17 games provide a set of unique circumstances in many cases. There are four teams who have their seed completely locked up and have very little incentive to play starters–New York, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Houston. Point spreads for those games are pretty disconnected from the actual strength of the teams, so…

2016 NFL Week 16 Picks

Another tough week last week. Philadelphia was our lone big play to cover, while San Fran lost and San Diego either pushed or lost depending on whether you got +2.5 or +3. The Jets, after dominating the first quarter, got steamrolled by Miami, and Cincinnati blew a 14-point lead and couldn’t cover the +3 or…
