Another off week and now we’re officially below .500 for the first time in our 2.5-year existence! Small samples, baby. Chagrined but not worried. We believe we’ve been on the right side of the market and it’s only a matter of time until a bit of the luck goes our way.
0-4-1 last week, including 0-2 on Big Plays. Makes us 19-20-3 YTD (48.7%). We were 0-3 in the Wall Street Journal, pushing our record there to 8-11-1 YTD (42.1%).
Short slate this week. Might be a product of the many close games on tap. As always, our lines are calculated directly from our power rankings – we don’t consider injuries, weather, matchups, etc. Lines are from Bookmaker (via sbrodds.com), as of Tuesday, 10/23, 2:00pm EDT.
Big Plays (9-8-1 YTD)
None this week.
Other Plays (10-12-1 YTD)
OAK (+2) at KC [MP= -1.2]
DAL (+1) vs NYG [MP= -2.1]
WAS (+5) at PIT [MP= +3.0]
A couple of below threshold picks, in case you really need more. We think the Saints should be only 4.2-point dogs at Denver, rather than 6. And we like Philly by only 0.8 against Atlanta, rather than 2.5.
Also, Jacksonville at Green Bay is off the board right now. We have the Packers as huge 17-point favorites.
