    Week 1 results:

    +1.00 KANSAS CITY +8
    -2.50 TENNESSEE -2.5

    Week 1: -1.50 units (W/L = 1-1 overall = .500 pct)
    ---------------------------------------------------

    WEEK 2:
    DENVER +2 at -105 // 1.05 units to win 1

    I might add a unit to this on gameday if Denver gets up to +3
    Other games, obviously Raiders and Seattle should win, but man its a lot of points to lay.
    Tennessee- want to believe they will bounce back but they just didn't seem to click at all week 1 and its dangerous to chase a team in poor form, while Jacksonville on defense looked like the real deal.

    In response to Yoda vid, for NFL season my strategy is best, easy play each week, maybe 2 or 3 tops.

    Rather than spray the board with volume, and deducting juice -units offset winners....Which can work if capper is seeing the picks clearly, gets hot and on a roll.

    This week Titans would have added a win for me....in Week 1 they didn't so just didn't feel confident on them.

    Denver was the game I saw being the easiest. Could I have added others, such as New England? Sure.

    Generally, less is more... you are correct.... but if you're a winning capper volume is what makes you money... no different than poker or stocks...

    WEEK 3:
    CHARGERS +3 // 1.23 units to win 1

    This week I'm of the opinion more upsets/covers by underdogs against the spread will occur, a la Thursday night with the Niners coming back to cover +3 vs. Rams. Although this week appears a difficult board to me overall. I think the Chargers get their first win on the season at home today against the Chiefs. Chargers have not looked terrific but also not terrible in their previous games this year, and have lost both close games, with 38 total points scored in two games vs. 43 scored against for a -5 point differential. This is a divisional game, just "feel" play here if you will -the game will be close so give me the points with the SuperChargers.

    Looks quite a few of us on the forum were duped into thinking Chargers would join the party this week as a dog who would cover/win outright, at home no less. Forced play when it doesn't work, genius when it works.

    well got the first 2, both dogs. So now you don't like my 2 favorites to cover?? probably right...knew this Chargers play was shaky but 1) do like their defense, and 2) just figured this might be the week bettors stay away and they win...why do I still make plays on that type of logic....trying to get back in focus, men thanks for patience.

    Meantime what a paradise for many straight-up underdog winners today.

    KANSAS CITY -2 (-110)
    ARIZONA +6.5 (-106)
    DETROIT -2 (-110)
    L.A. Rams -1 (-110)
    SAN FRANCISCO +2 (-105) x3 Best Bet

    WEEK 7 - early lines picks:

    ARIZONA +3.5 -115 // 1.15 units to win 1
    ARIZONA ML+160 // 1 unit to win 1.60
    WASHINGTON +4.5 -110 // 1.10 units to win 1
    WASHINGTON ML+190 // 1 unit to win 1.90

    might add units if the spreads increase as the week goes along up to gametime.

    Like the Arizona team to win in London (and I have been riding with the Rams up until now).

    Possibly more picks as we get closer to gametime.

    From what I understand the league wants to have a London team permanently...not sure when that happens. But could you imagine? How are the West coast teams supposed to handle travel over there and vice-versa?

    TAMPA BAY ML -120 // 1.20 units to win 1
    WASHINGTON +2.5 -105 // 1.05 units to win 1
    DETROIT +3 +100 // 1 unit to win 1

    Experiment in Week 8 of conducting no research didn't work at all either. Detroit was just ridiculous in the red zone and poor decision not to kick a field goal. Tampa and Washington at home also weren't even close.

    ATLANTA +2.5 -105 // 1.05 units to win 1 (line as of now is +1.5 but I got it Saturday morning at +2.5 and that's why I'm showing my line. Still think it's fine to take Atlanta +1.5 or the moneyline if you like that side on the road against a banged up Seattle defense)

    Stupid getting cute play Oakland vs Patriots in Mexico City game. Once the game started after the first couple hurry-up snaps by the Patriots, you knew this was the wrong play. Oakland made a couple drives early-on, fumbled, then let Pats march right down the field and score on them. Terrible pick.

    Atlanta pick made sense given Seattle's injuries on defense, but even that game came down to the wire as Atlanta once again showed they are suspect closing out games against good opponents.

    Dolphins curb stomped Denver - also Denver just didn't bring any offense to the Sunshine State. Miami did play inspired from what I saw.

    I didn't play a moneyline on this because it was Miami -103 within an hour before kickoff, so I figured +1 -110 was fine, maybe that was wrong. I wanted to get Dolphins at +plus money but it wasn't available until real close to kickoff and I already made the pick.
