Weekly Gambling Spreads.
 
Along with picking every game, I will also have 1000 "fake" dollars to spend on the lines throughout the year that I feel are worth while.

I will bet price and potential earnings in every pick.

Anyone else can play too, see how you would do theoretically.

2014
Bank Account - $2363.20


Superbowl bets:

Seahawks +220 (426.45 to win 1363.20)

Any time there's a double digit spread I'm tempted to take the underdog. Bovada has the Pats and Colts at -10 right now.

Carbine bout to find out just how difficult it is to outsmart Vegas...take into account their 5% take from the winners, the "juice", you really need to be correct on 60% of your picks to make a profit


and the way many handicappers do things, is that they will list games out as Carbine has done here, but they will have 1-3 games each week they consider "locks" where you are to put 2x or 3x the amount of money down that you would on all the other games.

Pats/Bills being a division game benefits Buffalo as well, less likely to blow them out I would think.

I need to pick 5 out of these. So far i am leaning towards Texans, Vikings, and Bengals. Trying to figure out other two. Any opinions?

NO, Seattle, and KC maybe.

I have read several places that Giants have looked like poo-poo during the preseason...

my gut is telling me that Dallas will roll them in Jerry World...they are due to end that 4 game streak anyway


that might be the homer in me though...but if I had to bet on one of these games I think I would take Dallas -3

I'd bet Dallas too but that's not a good game to bet. You are betting against a whole bunch of trends ending and you have injury issues. Still i'd take Dallas -3 but can't you see Dallas winning 35-18 and the Giants getting a couple of late score to bring to 35-33? Something like that?

I never bet on my team, think about last year when you told us all Dallas would roll Seattle in Seattle. 100% no doubt, Cowboys were going to have fried Seahawks for dinner. We all have those thoughts about our teams.

I would probably take Dallas at -3 and TB at -3 if it we my money. Actually prob sub out Dallas for Seattle.

Oakland is awful. Picking against them might be a good idea. They are really awful.
