    Week 7 results....

    1. yacraps....(5-0) Impressive!...another solid week.
    2. TDVegas....(4-1)....Lock pick won
    3. Night Attack....(3-2)....Lock pick lost
    3. Bases loaded....(3-2)
    3. von duck....(3-2)
    4. MisterInside....(2-3)
    5. HornHiYo....(2-6)
    6. basicstrategy777....(1-4)....Lock pick lost

    Overall (23-20)

    -Chiefs roll
    -Texans on, off, on, off
    -Giants looked bad...Jets too
    -Dolphins cover 2 weeks in a row
    -Vikings get it done
    -Packers roll
    -Jags win, cover against lowly Bengals
    -Rams steamroll (in hindsight, obvious pick, IMO)
    -49'ers get the shutout, don't cover.
    -Chargers? 1st and G from 1....no can do.
    -Ravens get it done in Rainy City
    -Saints...continue to win and cover w/o Brees
    -Cowboys roll
    -Patriots....just seem like a lock pick week in, week out


    Overall total 123-146-7 (.458)

    No real big "what the hell"? moments this week. No big upsets or games that were totally out of whack...although Saints put a hurting on Da Bears in Chi-town.

    Total results....

    1. MisterInside....(18-16-1) (.529)
    2. Bases loaded....(17-17-1) (.500)
    3. basicstrategy777....(16-17-2) (.486)
    4. yacraps....(16-18-1) (.471)

    5. HornHiYo.....(14-17) (.452)
    6. Night Attack....(15-20) (.429)
    7. von duck....(14-20-1) (.414)
    8. TDVegas....(13-21-1) (.386)

    .524 is break even for making some shekels or doubloons (or maybe a few Big Pineapples?;)). As it stands right now, we are all on bread and water.....MisterInside gets a ma'amoul with his .529....
    Time to turn up the volume.


    Week 8 sheet coming up tomorrow. Good luck.

    YaCraps, Congrats on 5-0 week! Fantastic.

    This is impossible for me. I am the guy the books set the lines for. I always get sucked in to the wrong side. I am worse that a coin toss. I'm not sure how Vegas gets on the wrong side of some of these games?

    No clue for Week 8, many double digit spreads, is that good or bad?

    Edit: the Jets pick was just being a Homer. They didn't even show up; insulting to their fan base. I love Bill Bellichick. He actually took his foot off the gas punting late in game on short yardage situation which they would have made, easy. Fuck the losers, stomp on 'em.

    Thanks. I didn't know what is represented by an X on a line sheet.

    No problem.

    Typically it means they are holding off on the line until they get a better read on the injured player. I believe some books have a spread listed...maybe -3 or -4?

    I didn't know what the X meant either until I asked the director a while back.

    I think Matt Ryan did a light practice today....

    I actually considered giving all the double digit points in the 5 games, a total of 64 1/2 points!

    Bucs
    Bears
    Eagles
    49ers
    Colts

    It's not a bad thought to get those points, IMO. Both double digits covered last week and it seems some relative parity might be entering as the season is in full mid stream. It's a lot of points to get....about an average of an extra 2 TD's per game.

    Have you heard? Social Security recipients will receive an extra 1.6% in 2020.

    When I informed my wife, she couldn't contain her excitement. See for yourself.
