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 10 – Betting Picks Against Spread

richard-sherman-tom-brady-week-10-2016-nfl-season-picks-against-the-spread-betting-americas-white-boyI went 8-3-2 last week and actually hit the Monday Night Football game for the first time in a few weeks. I have no idea what’s going on there, since I have decent track record in the past.

We are back to fourteen games on the schedule this week after having a lot of teams on bye week the last two weeks.

The election is over and even if you are unhappy with the outcome, you can now focus more of your time on sports. There might even be a portion of the country that has no idea the NBA season has started. Welcome back to the real world, political junkies.

2016 NFL Week 9 – Betting Picks Against Spread

jay-ajayi-americas-white-boy-miami-dolphins-nfl-picksI went 7-5-1 last week after missing on some late games. I did hit on a couple nice moneylines, but really wish the Vikings looked better. They started out so hot, but they have now fell on their faces.

There are six teams on a bye week once again and there isn’t a game in London…so you can sleep in on Sunday!

We are starting to get some more division games this week, so there’s some historic information out there that can help you out. That info will be huge the last month of the season.

2016 NFL Week 8 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Joey-Bosa-Week-8-2016-NFL-betting-picks-against-the-spread-americas-white-boyI went 7-8 last week after whiffing on some road favorites. I definitely underestimated San Diego and Green Bay, but felt solid about the rest of my picks.

There are six teams on a bye week this week and an early game in London. There could be some weak football watching on Sunday if we are stuck with some blow outs.

Fall weather is in full force in the NFL, but I don’t think the weather will interfere in many games. Rain is expected across the Midwest, but I don’t see it affecting any bets.

2016 NFL Week 5 – Betting Picks Against Spread

nfl-week-5-picks-against-the-spread-americas-white-boy-gambling-odell-beckham-new-york-giantsI finished with a 9-6 record on the week and hit on a couple sweet moneylines, so I’m a happy man.

A quarter of the season is in the books and there’s two teams that have no business being over .500 (Ravens and Rams). I don’t think either will fare well this weekend.

I’ve been hovering around .500 this year and I currently sit at 30-30-3 on the season. I hope to widen the gap between wins and losses. I feel pretty good about this week’s picks.

2016 NFL Week 3 – Betting Picks Against Spread

jay-cutler-catI started off great last week, but the late games destroyed me. I finished with a 7-8-1 record on the week. I really like this week’s lines, so I hope for a better week.

I think you must take records with a grain of salt right now. There are a lot of quality 0-2 teams that play winnable games this week. Also, there are a couple 2-0 teams that have kind of lucked into an undefeated record. Records will start coming into play more after the first four games.

Week 3 is always a litmus test for many teams, especially if you currently sit at 1-1 or even 0-2. You don’t want to fall below .500 or end up winless after three games.

2015 NFL Week 8 – Betting Picks Against Spread

jim bob cooter detroit lions nfl picks against the spread 2015The Lions fired a ton of their offensive coaching staff and promoted a guy named Jim Bob Cooter to run the offense. He has the best name in the NFL and possibly the entire world. We wish him the best of luck…he will need it.

I went 7-6 against the spread last week. I hit on an underdog moneyline with Oakland to come out positive on the week.

Which team will stay undefeated, Green Bay or Denver?

2015 NFL Week 5 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Week 4 seemed a bit early to start worrying about major injuries to key players. We wrote last week’s article on Thursday morning and things changed so much from then until Sunday morning.

I went 7-5-1 last week against the spread. I pulled two games off the board due to last-minute injury substitutions. Sportsbooks adjusted the lines too late in the week after Hasselbeck started for the Colts and Brees started for the Saints.

A few players are returning from injuries and suspensions this week. Andrew Luck appears to be ready to start on Thursday, but is it too early? Also, thankfully we don’t have a London game this week, so we can all sleep in on Sunday.
