It’s a show where I review all the information and opinions I’ve gathered each week from professional handicappers, bookmakers, and even SBR Forum posters, and I put together a parlay consisting NFL picks with the most convincing support.
In Week 1 of the 2013 NFL season, there are a number of public-backed small road favorites, which is the kind of line that burned the bookies and rewarded the betting public in the early parts of last season. All of them were actually recommended by the professional handicappers in the preview vids I did throughout the week, and some made it into my parlay for this week.
Whenever I see big public-backed sides that look attractive, I always ask Brent, the Head Lines Manager from BetDSI in my weekly show with him, Into The Weekend with BetDSI, if he’s gotten any buyback on the other side from sharps. If he hasn’t that is usually pretty telling to me, and encourages me to go with the public-backed side. This week, Houston, KC, Seattle, and Tampa Bay are all public-backed small road faves that were all also recommended to me as plays by professional handicappers in my game previews, and I considered them all for the parlay this week.
Another game I used was the interesting New England/Buffalo game where the Pats, despite question marks heading into the season, are a double-digit road favorite, presumably because the Bills will be starting rookie EJ Manuel at QB. Troy West from AllPlaysWin.com gave me a pick in that one, and I decided to tail his opinion and put it in the parlay.
I also used the pick that Stephen Oh from EventDataServices.com recommended to me in the Cincinnati/Chicago game, and my regular viewers remember him from last year’s NFL season where he had a great record giving us a pick a week, and rattled off 7 or 8 straight winners in the heart of the season last year.
In all I threw in 7 teams into the parlay this week, and will be doing it with a round-robin, instead of just a single 7-team parlay.
