2016 NFL Week 17 – Betting Picks Against Spread

matt mcgloin Week 17 Oakland Raiders playoffs NFL YODAI finished 9-7 last week and suffered a few bad beats. I want to end the regular season with a strong week, but Week 17 is usually a crap shoot.

I’ve spent the last couple days battling a horrible flu. I did have a chance to study who may sit Week 17. I also explain which teams still have something to play for this Sunday.

A lot of weird stuff happens during the last week of the season. We are almost guaranteed to have some receiver or running back have 200+ yards or some backup quarterback pull a ‘Matt Flynn’ and throw for a ton of yards. Can Raiders backup QB Matt McGloin be this year’s Week 17 surprise?

2016 NFL Week 16 – Betting Picks Against Spread

americas-white-boy-week-16-nfl-picks-against-the-spread-2016-ezekiel-elliott-salvation-army-gamblingI finished 9-6-1 last week after betting on a lot of covers. It worked in my favor and most of the favorites did well against the spread last week.

Betting games late in the NFL season does pose a few extra things to consider than betting early season games. Not only do you have to factor in weather issues, but a team’s motivation to win could be a huge factor. If a team has nothing left to play for, it could hurt their performance against the spread.

Also, you don’t want to make motivation the ‘end all, be all’ factor. Players on bad teams are still playing for contracts this offseason and roster spots next year. You have to toe a thin line at this point in the season.

2016 NFL Week 13 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Matt-Barkley-Chicago-Bears-QB-Americas-White-Boy-week-13-gambling-picks-against-the-spreadI went undefeated on Thanksgiving against the spread, but after losing two games by a half-point and Denver blowing their lead Sunday night, I finished 9-7 last week. I could have had a very good week, but I’ll take the nine covers.

I can’t believe we could be seeing the ‘Matt Barkley Era’ begin in Chicago. He was able to move the ball and if it wasn’t for two redzone interceptions, they would have beaten Tennessee. I guess it’s pretty easy to look like a capable NFL quarterback when you’re following Jay Cutler. 

There isn’t much need to keep an eye on weather reports this weekend. All of the games are expected to be nice.

2016 NFL Week 7 – Betting Picks Against Spread

odell-beckham-jr-net-proposal-americas-white-boy-nfl-picks-against-the-spread-week-7-2016I finished strong last week and ended with a 8-5-2 record. I have went 20-6-3 the last two weeks, which made up for my .500 percentage after the first couple weeks of the NFL season. 

I don’t feel like there are as many ‘landmines’ or sucker bets in this week’s lines. Last week was a rough week and took a lot of research and scouring injury reports. 

I did about the same amount of work this week and ended up falling in love with a lot of road teams.

2016 NFL Week 2 – Betting Picks Against Spread

funny-nfl-picks-against-the-spread-week-2-2016-americas-white-boyI didn’t start off the year very well. I stuck my neck out and made some risky picks for large point spread covers. None of the larger point spreads covers hit and I was left with a 6-8-2 record on the week.

I gained a lot of knowledge from last week’s games. There are still a lot of question marks this week, but don’t get stuck in some of the team trends from last season. It’s a new season and teams are fresh (and a little rusty). A team may make adjustments and be much better this week.

There can be a lot of value in Week 2 point spreads. The public tends to take a little too much stock in what they saw in the first week. Preseason team rankings will come in handy this week, since a lot of losing teams will bounce back end up 1-1 after this week.

2015 NFL Week 15 – Betting Picks Against Spread

manziel 100 dollar bill autograph signedI hovered around .500 last week and finished 7-9 on the week. I didn’t have any bad beats, just a some poor outings from quarterbacks that I thought would play better.

Make sure to keep an eye on the playoff standings from this point forward. You need to figure how which teams have something left to gain by playing hard. Also, keep an eye on weather reports. You never know when a game could turn into an ice bowl. If a team is playing outdoors in the Midwest, it shouldn’t be a huge factor since we have weird Autumn-like weather right now.

Can the Steelers keep airing out the ball against the Broncos secondary?

Can Carolina stay perfect against the New York Giants?

2015 NFL Week 14 – Betting Picks Against Spread

antonio brown pittsburgh steelers indianapolis colts goalpost celebration touchdown picks against the spread nfl america's white boy 2015Last week, I had a weird week picking against the spread. I missed some early games, but then my picks were hitting non-stop. I even picked the Philly moneyline in the New England/Philadelphia game. That kind of negated any early losses.

I went 10-5-1 last week against the spread. I’m on a four-straight ‘strong week’ streak. I want to thank the bookmakers for the lack of double-digit point spreads so far this season. It seemed like they were all double-digits by this time last season.

2015 NFL Week 13 – Betting Picks Against Spread

sad tom brady new england patriots denver broncos 2015 america's white boy nfl picks against the spreadI once against went perfect on Thanksgiving. I then hit on a bunch of early games, but the late games nearly ruined a good week. I hit on some moneylines and was super stoked about picking the Broncos moneyline against New England. It was a nail-biter, but I’ll take it.

I went 10-6 last week against the spread. I’ve had three-straight strong weeks and have made up for me bouncing around .500 in college football this year.

There are a lot of division games this weekend. Which ones will end up being upsets?
