NFL Week 4 Circa Picks, Week 3 and Season to date recap, comments on the investing section all posted

Football is moving along and we are already on Week 4 in the NFL!

Last week in the Circa Contest I went 4-1 putting my record at 9-6. Also I had Jacksonville +7.5 on Thursday night so I have a jump on

this weekend

My NFL plays last week went 2-2 bringing me to 6-6 for the season on Sides.

Then in the all spread contest where I pick every game against the spread I ended the week at 25-23  but again has a win going into this weekend. All my all spread picks are sent out to subscribers only the day of the game. With my Road Map of every NFL game.

My 5 picks for the Circa contest this week are:

Jacksonville +7.5 (W)

Jets +7

Giants +7.5

Eagles +7

New England +6.5

They are in no particular order as look look pretty good to me.  I considered the +17 on Houston and would have used the game but the others look like better picks.

It is very hard to wager on double digit favorites in the NFL. Historically its a losing wager.


In the Westgate Supercontest last week the top 5 finally put in a winning day going 4-1. That brings its record to 6-9 for the Season.


The Westgate top 5 are:






I am not on any of the top 5 and am fading 2 of the. A good spot to be as far as I am concerned:)

The bottom 5 this week in the Westgate:






Typically the Thursday night game , both sides show up in the bottom 5 as most of the contest players want to wait until the last second to put in their picks. It is no different this weekend as the Thursday night game is 1 and 2 on the bottom 5.

Today so far I have sent out no plays in the NFL, but  their are several games that look pretty good to me. I typically send them out about 30 min before game time. Much of  my handicapping is evaluating the line moves in relation to the public betting. I have been using this technique successfully for the last 20 years.

On the investing side of the service the markets have been taking a hit. My portfolio and short term trades are holding up very well. I managed to find a very high % trade Thursday night that was good for +1% in SPY in less then a day hold. My short put sale was a winner also on Thursday/Friday.

The investing side of this service is really one of the most overlooked parts. It has been a solid +EV money maker from day 1. And the good thing is the  drawdowns have been nominal.

If you have an interest in finding out more, just send me an email and I will go through everything with you.

Also as part of the investing side, I give an opening commentary before each trading day with my observations as to what to suspect.

The cost of the service is only 49.00 a month. You get a 3 day free trial, and have the option to quit anytime.  Unlike other services far less successful who charge thousands and lock you in for the entire season. It is one of the few values left in sports services at this point.

I have been providing this for 20 years now and most of my subscribers come from word of mouth. 

If you wish to subscribe go to, click on the PayPal button and choose the monthly subscription.

There is an option for a yearly subscription. But I do not recommend it until you have been a subscriber for a few months. Betting sports is not for everyone. It has its ups and downs. Few can weather the variance let alone come up with +EV methods.

I do much better then most for far less the money. 

Good Luck Today
