Quick post on the NFL this week as I’m away this weekend. I’ve just wrote this quickly on my phone this morning. Another bad week on this sport last week. I’m looking more and more likely to stop betting on NFL to focus solely on basketball. I’ll write some more on that this coming week.
Ironically 3 days after promising to write about more just a weekly NFL post… the next post is the weekly NFL post! I’ve got a couple of posts half written that will go out next week. And I’m gonna to finish off the NFL season anyway.
With only 5 weeks to go in my Supercontest I’m 13 points off the top..I’m beginning to think I may not win it this year…
Atlanta Falcons -4 home to Kansas City Chiefs
Arizona Cardinals -2.5 home to Washington Redskins
Seattle Seahawks -6.5 home to Carolina Panthers
There’s 3 home favourites I’m taking this week, which is quite rare for me. With Arizona I was tempted by the number foremost, being the right side of a key number. Seattle are currently -7.5 on pinny. And Atlanta was my 5th choice/scrapping the barrel pick.
Denver Broncos -4 at Jacksonville Jaguars
It opened at -5 but now it’s in to -3.5.
New York Jets +2 home to Indianapolis Colts
Another move that I’m the ‘wrong side’ of, it opened up a pick’em. I’m ok with it.
Looking back at recent posts, I’ve only been writing one post a week, and that has been about NFL. When I started this blog this wasn’t the plan. I don’t even enjoy watching the NFL anymore! I only bet on it because I make money on it, or at least I used to. My NFL picks haven’t been very good this season, I’m currently 3.72 points down.
Anyway. So if we’re being honest: this blog hasn’t been a riveting read recently. It hasn’t been fun to write either. My problem has been setting aside time to write something and recently I’ve just been writing about NFL picks as I’ve forced myself to write something before Sunday afternoon.
So my choices are currently:
Either improve the quantity of posts and the overall quality or pack it in…
…to the dozens of Winners Win readers around the world: fear not! I’m going to up my game blog wise.
I don’t want to spend a massive amount of time on this blog. It’s not like it’s bringing any money in. So I’m just going to have to be more efficient in writing.
The Athletics has started in Rio. The big PEDs related news story surrounds Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana who won gold in the women’s 10,000m, and smashed the world record by 14 seconds.
The previous world record was set in 1993 and is a confirmed dirty record. She beat that by 14 seconds and didn’t exactly collapse at the finishing line. Oh and the 2nd half of her run would have been an Olympic record at 5,000m. So she ran 5,000m quicker than anyone else… after already running 5,000m!
