Week 7 betting recap by @morethanfantasy


                                                                     

Week 7 Results: 3-1 ATS

Season to Date: 5-2 ATS

WIN. The Vikes -6 came through as expected. Ponder was much worse than I anticipated, and Skelton much better. Jared Allen and the Vikings defense wreaked havoc on Arizona’s pitiful O-Line and even managed a pick-6.  The Cards made this look closer than it was by scoring a TD in garbage time.
WIN. The Cowboys -2 just felt too good to be true. The Panther’s proceeded to fire their GM after the game (finally) after years of poor drafts and contract signings. Jones and Tanner didn’t too much for the run game, but Romo picked apart the defense just enough to get the win. Miles Austin stepped up while Dez took a backseat in targets due to his groin issue.
WIN. The Steelers -2.5 fell down early leaving me restless on the couch for Sunday Night Football. Once Heath got in theendzone with 24 seconds left in the half I started feeling much better about the game. The game itself was fairly dull combining the Bengals inability to move the ball with the Steelers inability to capitalize on their drives. Pittsburgh outgained Cincinnati 431-185 in total yards but only won by 7 points.
LOSS. The Raiders -4 were a point away from covering. Of course, the game went into overtime so we would have needed a TD to win. The Jaguars took a 17-6 lead into halftime behindGabbert’s best half of football in 2 years. As karma would have it, Gabbert landed hard on his shoulders and had to pass the torch to Chad HenneHenne came out and proved to the world that the Jags easily have the worst QB-combo in the league.
Now two weeks into sharing my spread picks with you, I am 5-2 (7-2 if you count my concluding paragraph picks in which I have been too afraid to publicly recommend). Both losses have been 1 point away from pushing. The Jets’ made the game close and had a great shot to win the game, but Stephen Hill couldn’t corral the throw from Sanchez. Anytime two division rivals are separated by more than 10 points, it’s a good bet the underdog will cover. I mentioned last week that I would be betting against the Ravens while the public perception of their defense was still high. Stay tuned next week as I try to keep the hot streak rollin’.
