Been a tough year overall for us thus far but that’s across the prognostication kingdom.
Example: My .609 mark straight-up would be fourth-best on ESPN’s 11-person NFL experts panel. Underdogs are 100-78-1 against the spread (56.2%), another sign of a turbulent season to predict. We’ve accumulated some momentum lately, though, both straight-up and against the spread, finally creeping back up to .500 ATS. Last week we nailed a fourth consecutive Upset of the Week pick with Broncos beating Chargers (“Aawwk!”), had a second outright mini-upset with Dolphins beating Panthers, and also had Lions-with-point on a Thanksgiving Day cover. Let’s keep it a green-light go on the mo’! [Note: Thursday night pick was Cowboys (-4 1/2) over @Saints, 27-24.]
Week 12: 10-5, .667; 9-6, .600 vs. spread.
Season: 109-70-1, .609 overall; 89-89-2, .500 vs. spread.
Final 2020: 166-89-1, .651 overall; 130-120-6, .520 vs. spread.
