What I’ve learned: I can’t mess with Houston, may have to ease up on AZ, I need to bet the house on Tom Brady every week, the Vikings could be on their way down, Jacksonville SUCKS, Derek Carr don’t lose, and in Europe, the law dictates all sporting events must end in ties. Not my best week, but certainly not my worst. My winning percentage is 61% and I’m still in the black. For now…

 

Season Record: 10-6-2

Betting on TNF

I’ll have my regular NFL vs My Bank Account post up tomorrow, but since I’ve got money down on tonight’s game, I wanted to post the pick before kickoff.

Jacksonville +3 @ Tennessee $22.00 to win $20.00
Simply put, I don’t think Bortles can get it done against the Titans’ solid defense, especially in Tennessee. Plus, I love integer lines because if it does come down to a Tennessee field goal win, all I have to do is kiss my sister. And need I say it’s gotta be tough to win in the liver disease color rush jerseys.

PS Never betting on the Titans again because of how many tries it took me each time to spell Tennessee. I know there are 2 Ns 2 Ss and a capital T, but apparently my fingers don’t.
