NFL Picks Against the Spread: Payback Weekend For Dallas, New England & Kansas City


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.

If you’re wondering how I have four more wins in these videos than in the Hilton Supercontest contest, I sadly explained the reasoning here.
