Picking five NFL games against the spread each week is terribly difficult. We’re using lines from the Hilton SuperContest, and remember, 57 percent is considered good. CineSport’s Noah Coslov went 1-4 last week and stands 26-39 on the year. Jason went 2-3 to fall to 40-25*.
Like a marathon runner struggling down the stretch, I’m fading.
After a torrid 14-6 stretch, I’m in a 3-7 funk. This week oddsmakers can’t seem to make favorites high enough: the Chiefs are -10 against Oakland, the Ravens -13.5 against Jacksonville, the Patriots 7.5 against Miami and the Seahawks a whopping -10 at home against the 49ers.
Keep in the mind the revenge factor: the Chiefs just lost to the Raiders; the Patriots opened the season with a loss in Miami, and the 49ers just got throttled by the Seahawks.
Toss in the Redskins (+6.5) at Giants, Vikings (+8) at Lions, Chargers (+4) vs. Broncos, Bengals (pick) at Browns and Cowboys (+3) at Philadelphia, and you’ve got payback weekend.
As usual, Oddssharks trends are highly recommended.
