First decent week in the SuperContest going 3/5. I’ve already got one point in after going for San Diego +3 in the Thursday night game. The prime reason for the pick was a contrarian strategy. I was expecting a lot of people to side with Denver, and I’ve got a lot of ground to make up. Unfortunately there wasn’t the number of people picking Denver. Most people prefer to give the Thursday night game a miss, but I incorrectly assumed that more people would be eager to back Denver -3 similar to the level that they were backed at Tampa Bay a couple weeks ago.
Philadelphia Eagles -2.5
Spoke briefly about this game mid week. The Philly ML opened up at just under evens at the squarest of square books. That didn’t last long, but there was still plenty of value to be had before it reached the 1.671 it is now.
Oakland Raiders 0
Another game I’ve picked in the SuperContest and backed in real life. You can still back the Raiders at decent odds IMO.
Atlanta Falcons +6.5
Yet again another game I’ve picked in the SuperContest and backed in real life. Based on results this season the Seahawks are overrated, they’re 3-1 but had played 4 of the worst teams in the league so far.
New Orleans +3
The Panthers have been bad this season, and Cam Newton is coming back from a concussion.
- Detroit v Rams
- Dallas at GB
Both ML are still at available at decent odds IMO.
It’s been in the news recently that the NFL viewership is way down compared to last year. Here’s a couple of articles with the reasons why:
Although one reason that hasn’t been mentioned in the above article is that maybe, just maybe, people are finally getting sick of the long drawn out, stop-start nature of a football game. A game lasts 3 hours 10 mins but the ball is only actually in play 11 minutes. I watch RedZone each week as I find just watching the one game mind-numbingly boring to be honest.
