It’s been a quiet couple of weeks since the end of the Olympics. I’ve actually only placed 1 bet in the time since! Fortunately this bout of cold turkey will finish this week with the return of the NFL.
The Broncos host the Panthers on Thursday night and my trusty NFL database has already been updated with the 2015 data. During this season I’ll be taking part in an NFL Supercontest again.
I finished last season joint 17th out of 122 contestants. The premise is simple: for each of the 17 weeks of the NFL regular season, you have to pick 5 games against the spread. So that’s 85 picks in total where you score 1 point for a correct pick, ½ point for a push and nothing for a loss.
The one I’m taking part in is organised by a chap named Fitz and it only costs $115. Which is very reasonable compared to some of the other ones out there. If you fancy joining in too; the rules are here:

Each week I’ll write a post detailing what the lines are, and what 5 picks I’ve gone for.
