Last Week: 9-4, Locks 4-1
Season 52-53-2, Locks 14-20-1 Last week was more like it, bringing my overall record near .500. I look to keep the momentum rolling on Halloween weekend as the NFL's midway point nears. We begin by making a rare Thursday night play. Arizona -6.5 v. Green Bay - This has been a good year to pick favorites covering the spread, in particular seven-point favorites are 11-3 against the number and have won all 14 games overall. I am going against the Packers 6-0-1 record since Week 1 but their receiver corps including Davante Adams has been hit by the COVID bug. Look for the Cardinals to roll to 8-0 on the year.
Buffalo -13.5 v. Miami - Double-digit favorites went 2-1 against the number in Week 7, the exception being the Lions covering at the Rams. The Bills already have recorded one shutout of the Dolphins this year and expect them to win convincingly again. Detroit +3.5 v. Philadelphia - Was 2-0 picking underdogs last week, so will go with one this week. Eagles running backs Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott will see increased playing time and make for good budget plays in daily fantasy. Cincinnati -10 @ NY Jets - Seriously, how many times in recent memory have the Bengals been double-digit favorites on the road. My favorite bet stat comes from the college side where the University of Kansas will be an underdog in a conference game for a 105th consecutive time. The Jayhawks may be retiring that record.
Denver -3 @ Washington - Both teams are similarly subpar and offensively challenged. This is WFT's second straight road game in a tough environment so I will go with the Broncos.
