Losing a 2.5 unit bet on Iowa yesterday knocks me off the unbeaten streak. Here are the current stats:
NFL – 15-11, +22.5 units
CFB – 4-6, -1.8 units
Giants -3, 7.5 units – It’s time to start making some bigger money and that starts with the man who pays the bills, OBJ. He had a monster game last week against the Ravens and will do the same against a banged up Rams team. The Rams are coming off of back to back losses to the Bills and Lions and I expect the trend to continue. The Giants are 3-3 with losses to the Redskins, Vikings, and Packers all of whom are above .500. An odd spot to play in London, but OBJ can eat anywhere he wants.
KC/NO, Under 50.5, 4 units – I’m making this pick on Evan Silva’s suggestion. The Saints don’t play as well on the road and Alex Smith is all about ball control. I hate going with the obvious when I bet but there usually aren’t as many eyeballs on the O/U.
Fire up Spencer Ware! Of course I want a RB to go big on a game I bet the under. Either way, I’m spreading out my players in various lineups for a lot of exposure like usual. My gut feeling is to ride Jameis and Mike Evans because the 49ers are that bad. I also think having Gronk or Edleman is essential in every lineup. I like Jacquizz Rodgers and Matt Jones as cheap RB’s. I even did a few lineups where I pay up for LeVeon and DJ. Patriots and Ravens D are my plays.
Wild Turkeys – Struggling to get back to 3-3 has me in at least a position to strike but I got off to a weak start with Alshon only getting 4.8 points on 11 targets. My opponent has Gronk and Ware which naturally I’ll be playing all over. He’s also going 3 man stack in the Seattle game with Wilson, Baldiwin, and Michael who play the tough D of the Cardinals. I have a feeling I’ll be holding my breath during the night game. Also I have a Shady but no replacement with Mathews and Booker on my bench.
Big Johnsons – I’m a big fan of this team this week with Jameis and Devonta leading the way. My 4-2 record gives me a little slack but this is projected to be tight.
Jameis Has Crabs – A horrible start with Meredith going for a sole point and Reed not playing. I’m also sitting with McCoy who I have to play with Foster and Forte too questionable. Tough spot and I don’t see a W here.
