NFL Week 1 comments , New “Dirty 30” fade. My thoughts for a Sunday Morning

A new NFL season is here.  Hopefully, it will not be marred by politics and proceed in the usual course. I am going to go on the assumption that there will be a full season.

Last year in the ALL Spread contest where you pick every game against the spread I hit 55.5% winners:)  In The Westgate where you pick the top 5, it was less than that.

This season is the first season I will not be in the Westgate. I decided against it not only because of the Vig they charge but the political uncertainty throwing another variable into the mix.  I plan on getting back in gear next season.

I did enter the ALL spread contest this season and I will send these picks out to all subscribers Sunday Morning, with my usual comments on each game. 

I started the all spread contest with a win Thursday night on KC. In addition, had a good day in College football with Georgia Tech +13 and UTEP +6 both winning the games outright. I am 2-1 now in college football.

My top 5 picks this week using the Westgate lines:

1. Carolina +3

2Atlanta +2.5

3. Denver +2.5

4. Miami +6.5

5. Cinci +3

Looking over the Westgate top 5:






Historically its been a winning proposition to fade these. Although last season you would have had to weather some punishment:)

I am with them on Atlanta and Fading Tenn with Denver.

The bottom 5 this week is :





San Fran

I am on Denver.

Also, the San Fran game is questionable today because of the fires. Not sure what the status of the game is this morning.

For those following my political plays I added one wager to my “dirty 30” wager last week:

NM-02 Republican 42/58  The line is now 45/55.

I now have 12 of the 30 “Dirty 30” faded with an overall 2/3 odds. I expect to win at least 50% of my wagers on these:)  We will see.

There are 18 more to go and as the lines are posted I plan on betting them.

It’s not too late to join us for a fun football season. Just go to the PayPal drop-down menu and subscribe!!!

I have sent out 1 NFL play so far today to Subscribers.
