Week 10 NFL Action Includes Pair Bet on Minnesota Vikings @ Oakland Raiders
Through the first 9 weeks of the 2015-2016 NFL season our published betting picks are 37-28-3, including a 5-1 effort last week and a 5-2-1 showing in week 8.
[We erroneously tweeted that our week 9 bet slip was loss-free. This misinformation resulted from our inaccurately logging the result of the Eagles @ Cowboys as a push rather than a Dallas loss -- the error has been corrected in our database.]
We kicked off week 10 with a pair bet on the Bills @ the Jets Thursday evening. Buffalo covered as expected (and actually won outright as 2.5 point underdogs), but the OVER fell just short of the payday.
At any rate, we hope that our strong performance of late is reflective of our system adapting to the idiosyncrasies of this particular season and that, in weeks to come, we continue to handicap games with a higher (and less volatle) success rate than was on display earlier in the season.
For Sunday, our methodology, which is predicated on a multi-factor power rankings approach combined with a multi-variate computer prediction algorithm overlay, identifies seven plays. We are betting each. Our wagers are indicated below, including the vigs we acutally paid. Our composite line estimates are indicated in brackets.
