The final week of the NFL is today and typically what you have is a lot of lines that look weird, along with a maze of possibilities for the playoffs to consider.
The general idea in the final week is to be looking at teams who are against another team that is in a must-win situation or secondarily has something to play for. In addition, you want to be looking at teams that are playing against teams that have nothing to play for, that are resting players.
The second category of matchups produces some crazy lines:) Do not be tempted to think that the lines are wrong. Historically, you want to be on the team with the crazy line.
A good example of that today is the Dallas Phil Matchup.
You should not consider Phil!
Last week I went 2-3 in the Westgate NFL Supercontest and after a very promising start, I find myself at 38-40-2. Disappointing but there is always next year.
My picks this week in the order I liked them at the time:
The Westgate top 5 picks in the contest this week are:
Last week the Westgate NFL Contest top 5 picks went 2-3 and stand at 35-43-2 or 44.78 %.
The bottom 5 picks this week are:
I am fading one of the top 5 and with two of the bottom 5. Not a bad spot to be:)
Today is going to be a very busy day with all sports having a full schedule of games. But things lighten up tomorrow and I plan on giving my year-end breakdown down along with what I anticipate 2018 will bring. It will be detailed, the good and the bad:)
Good Luck Today
