Every place I look has the G-men giving points which I find odd that they'd be giving. As a home dog with whoever you use I hope you nail it.

I agree with Saint Louis, got 'em at +2.5
Cleveland +2
New Orleans/Minnesota Over 50
Philadelphia -4
Jacksonville/Indianapolis Over 45.5

Good luck cheeno!

I chickened out on the Jets and added KC in the afternoon. Great weekend. I'm watching the moneylines like a hawk and using Nate Silvers FiveThirtyEight as a guide.

Well that was a good chicken out on your part...although I think the Jets "should" have covered. Got hosed on the fumble call and Geno got careless in the red zone. I ended up taking the over which hit. Although I'm sitting at the bar and for some reason I had it in my head that I had the over at 46.5 and not 45.5. I was none too happy until I got home and looked at what I had written down.

That fivethirtyeight site looks great! Thanks for the heads up...I've been doing a lot of heavy favorite moneyline parlays in NCAA. Eight teams and on up. They tend to hit and while you're only getting parlay odds between +200 - +400 since the moneylines are typically -800 and higher, it's relatively safe. Although one of mine was ruined by those clowns at the University of Southern California losing to Boston College.

the really nice thing about those parlays is if you get down to one or two games left, you get great hedging opportunities taking the ML dogs. What are you using on the fivethirtyeight site? all I see on the sports page is a bunch of articles, none relating to MLs or spreads or any gambling related analysis...

Detroit killed me - took my profits from NCAA (osu, Louisville, IU) and rolled into a parlay Eagles -4, Steelers -5.5, Chargers -7 and lions -5. They were up 8 w/ 8 minutes not only didn't cover, but lost...amazing
