NFL Wk 3 top 5 contest picks, Westgate top 5, Season to date recap for NFL, NCAA FB and MLB all posted

We are off to a great start in the NFL. Plays are 5-0, Contest picks are 8-2 and my picks in the all spread contest are

20-12-0 picking every game against the spread,


I cannot think of a better way to start out the NFL Season:)

Today my 5 contest picks are :

New England +3

Jets +6

Miami +5

Indy +5.5

Denver +1.5


The Westgate top 5 went 3-2 last week again bringing its record to 6-4. This is one of the best starts for the Westgate top 5 that I can recall.

Typically you want to fade the top 5 picks.

This week the Westgate top 5 is:




San Fran


I am fading 3 of the top 5 and not on any of the rest. Exactly where I like to be:)



2022 Season
Wk 1 3-2 +.80
Wk 2 1-0 +1.0
Sides 1-2  -1.20
Totals 1-0 +1.0
Wk 4
Sides 3-2  +.80
Totals 0-1  -1.10

Season to date combined

Sides 8-6   +1.40
Totals 1-1  -.10
Combined Season to date:  +1.30 Units
ROI:  8.125%

Not the fast start we are getting in the NFL but we have an ROI of 8.125% which is solid.

In MLB we are heading into the end of the regular season.

The story this season is overnight sides. I put these out the day before and as you know I changed my database this season. The result has

been great on these:

Sides: 129-135 +19.10  (Top to bottom swing has been -4.5 to +24.00)   ROI 8.88%

Sides line bet to closing line :175-61-14  74.15%

Some things to note. The top to bottom swing is 28.5 units. I predicted in the beginning of the season that we should see somewhere in the area of 30

units top to bottom. The good news is the negative has only been 4.5 units, All of the swing has been to the upside!!!

We are at +19.10 units on these with an ROI of 8.88% on 264 plays.

About as solid as you can get in my humble opinion.

I am looking forward to betting full units on these next season.
