On Saturday we had 3 plays in College football going 2-1. Michigan State +2.5 was an easy 23-13 winner as was Miss State -1 28-13. We lost with Stanford -2.5 38-41. That game could have gone either way at the end.
We had two bet or pass games and went 0-2 on those.
In the Westgate NFL Super Contest, I sit at 21-12-2 or just under 64% heading into week 8.
A good place to be heading into week 8. It puts me in a position where a nice rush will put me in the hunt to cash. With the massive amount of entrants, you need to keep having solid weeks to get into the top 100. To win it you need to have a massive run.
After week 7 I have 22 points. First is sitting at 27.5 points with an almost 80% cover rate!
My picks this week in the contest were for the first time in a number of weeks pretty easy picks for me. In the past, I might get excited about this. But, I know it is not a clear indication of a great week coming:)
My picks this week in the Westgate NFL Super Contest are: (in the order I liked them at the time)
The Westgate top 5 picks last week went 4-1 bring their record to 16-19-0. I have to say for the Westgate top 5 through week 7 that is pretty impressive.
Usually, they are sitting around 40% at this time of the season.
The Westgate top 5 this week are:
I am fading 2 of the top 5 and no with any of them. Not a bad spot to be.
An interesting observation is that the number 1 pick is a dog! You do not see that very often in the contest. I doubt that bodes well for Green Bay today:)
My free NFL Road Map of the day is :
Green Bay 68%
Rams 32% -10+111 -8-103 -10 -103 -8.5
Model Edge: Slight Edge Rams
Variable Edge: Neutral
Public % Edge: Rams
When the public is on the dog in the NFL the game to consider is the favorite. If you incorporated that rule into your handicapping your results would improve dramatically🙂
Saying that in this game the models only slightly favor the Rams and Variables are neutral. So that takes the game away for me to consider betting the Rams here. A complete pass for me on this one.
For subscribers, I give a roadmap for every NFL and NCAA FB game similar to this. It is invaluable if you’re handicapping these games. I doubt there are many better.
We are having a great season this year. 4-0 in the NBA, and strong results in both the NFL and College football. NHL Totals have been strong this year also so far.
