2016-17 NFL Best Bets 121-93-1 (56.5%) – 82-42-2 (65.1%) on NFL Sides
I deserved to be celebrating my way to a second consecutive 3-1 week on Best Bets but my Best Bet on Indianapolis +3.5 went to overtime and lost by 6 points. It is rare that an overtime game gets decided on a touchdown and even more unlikely when the team that scored it has only scored one other touchdown all game.
My other Best Bets went 2-1 with wins on Carolina ( upset Minnesota 31-24) and the Tennessee-Arizona Under (only 19 points scored) and a loss on the Philly-Rams Under, which went way over. The Strong Opinions were just 1-3 with a win on the Thursday night Under and losses with Washington, NY Giants, and Pittsburgh.
I am still just 21-24-1 on my 2017 NFL Best Bets and 18-16 on the Strong Opinions.
I know it’s been frustrating so far, especially for those of you that had the NFL service last season, but the play-by-play model has worked best in the latter part of the season and I feel confident that we’ll win going forward, as should have been the case this week.
