2017 NFL Week 2 – Betting Picks Against Spread

After missing two games by a half-point this weekend, I went 10-5 against the spread. I can’t be too sore about the half-point misses cause the ball will fall in my corner at some point this season. I still had a good week.

Week 1 had a lot of new faces making an impact. Marshawn Lynch was trucking defensive lineman for Oakland after sitting out last season. Rookies like Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt also stole the show.

There are so many good games this week. Vegas doesn’t even know what to do with a lot of these games. They gave way too many games point spreads in-between 4 and 5.5.

Will we see more blowouts like the Rams 46-9 win over the Colts?

How many of these gaudy double-digit point spreads will cover?

2017 NFL Wild Card Playoff Games – Betting Picks Against Spread

giants-boat-party-wild-card-game-post-spread-picks-against-nfl-americas-white-boyI’m limping into the postseason after back-to-back near-.500 weeks against the spread.

I’ve already done pretty darn well picking games against the spread in the postseason. I find it to be easier than picking the games straight up. Injuries will play a huge factor this week as two teams are playing backup quarterbacks.

Three of the four playoff games are being played outdoors, so check weather reports before kickoff.

Will the teams that finished hot this year stay hot when the pressure is on?

Will the backup quarterbacks make a name for themselves and pull off upsets this weekend?

2016 NFL Week 14 – Betting Picks Against Spread

andrew-luck-americas-white-boy-week-14-nfl-picks-against-the-spreadYour boy had a rough week. I finished 6-9 and really whiffed on some of the early games. I’d like to thank the Colts for making sure I didn’t end up with ten losses last week.

I’m going to write it off as just having a bad week. I think many of the teams will bounce back this week. Vegas catches up with teams this time of the year, especially when teams are playing in-division rivals for the second time. 

I’ll rolling the dice with quite a few road teams this week. I think there are a lot of 50/50 games that could come down to the last few plays, so that explains why there are so many tight points spreads. Let’s hope for some covers this weekend.

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 12 – Betting Picks Against Spread

americas-white-boy-NFL-betting-picks-against-the-spread-Week-12-Thanksgiving-bettingAfter a few weeks floating around .500, I finished 8-5-1 last week. I hit both Sunday Night and Monday Night Football games for only the third time this season. I was hoping to hit the Thursday night game too, but it ended in a push. 

I’ve historically done very well on Thanksgiving and this year’s games have pretty favorable lines. 

Injuries are mounting up and it’s extremely important to study injury reports at this point in the season.

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 4 – Betting Picks Against Spread

funny-ryan-fitzpatrick-poofy-hair-americas-white-boy-picks-against-the-spread-week-4-nfl-new-york-jets-beardI finished with a 8-8 record on the week after laying some stinker bets on the late games on Sunday.

I think it’s now time to start looking at win/loss records. Make sure you look at the opponents because there are at least one weak 3-0 team out there (Ravens).

I’ve been treading water so far this season. I’ve been hovering around .500 every week, but have fell victim to some bad beats and half-point losses. I still feel like I have a good grasp of these teams right now and I’ll start hitting some big weeks soon.
