Sweet Action: Week 6, Could this be it?

No comments:
Kevin, the host of the D.C. Sports Guys, will start the NFL season with $100 of his own money. The objective is simple: make as much money as possible betting on NFL games. No funds can be added during the season and if the account ever hits $0 Kevin will have to pack it in and admit defeat.


For the second week in a row I've hit on exactly zero bets.  It's only week 6 and things are pretty grim.  The Rams not only failed to cover against Lions, it's debatable if they even got off the plane.   The Chargers fell to the Raiders and the Saints seem to have more problems every week after taking it on the chin in Arizona.  Out of three parlays last week exactly 1 team from each lost leaving only $30.97 left to gamble with.  Could it be? The end? After just 6 weeks?  One bet will decide my fate.  Everything is on the line in a 4-team teaser which includes 2 dogs that should win, a team that can cover, and favorite to win.

The Bet:

Instead of listening to me, you might be better off investing sub-prime mortgages.  You'd lose less money and have a chance to get bailed out by the government. Following me will just lead you into going 0-6 and turn what was 20% of winnings on the season into a %40 loss.  I was wary of relying on so many favored teams in week 4 and as it turns out, I should have just taken a bye week.   The Titans struggled against another 3-4 defense, Peyton couldn't overcome a pitiful Colt's defense, Cincinnati never led against the Browns, and the Bears decided to take a week off from pass blocking.

With the account down to a mere $60.97 I'm looking for redemption this week. Or at least around $40 in winnings so I can take a deep breath and re-set for Week 6.  The Falcons and Saint should both roll to victory over vastly inferior opponents and I don't think the addition of Randy Moss will be enough for the Vikings this week against the Jets.  The Titans and Rams are dogs against teams with losing records, while they may not win I expect both to keep their respective games close.

$30 is on the line to win $52.07 in Week 5.  Check out the entire season of wagers, payouts and losses here.

I looked over the games again and again.  Every time through I thought to myself, "damn, a lot of heavy favorites this week".  Only the Bears going up against the Giants feels like a game one can be confident in the dog.  The Broncos can't run and are throwing the ball 57 times a game. Beating Washington didn't really prove anything about St. Louis.  Buffalo on top of being being terrible cut their Week 1 starter.  Jacksonville's defense will get owned by Peyton Manning.  Arizona, Cleveland, San Francisco and Washington aren't worth a look.  Detroit and Carolina are +14 and it's possible both should be higher.  Oakland's game is boxed and the Pittsburgh-Baltimore and New England-Miami games are too close to call.

I should be happy things look so obvious, right?  The problem is there are always upsets to be found.  Rarely do favored teams make it though each week in big numbers.  Anytime I look down and find all my bets heavy with favorites I cringe.  But it's favorites I will roll with this week, six of them, with Chicago as the only dog in the lineup.  One big 7-team parlay will try to shoot the moon, then 5 more parlays organized to mitigate the risk.

In Week 4, $60 is wagered to win $197.48.
