    I don’t love them it is only a Rating of 1, but it fits my underdog system that I have played and won all year.

    LOL. 45-10. I wouldn’t have suggested taking Northwestern against Ohio State. Granted, they have been impressive against the rest of the Big Ten, but that’s against teams like Minnesota, Purdue, and Iowa, who aren’t in the same league as Ohio State. NW was beat by Indiana two weeks ago and Indiana blows!

    Just to let you know. Phillips looks for home teams who are underdogs who have the opposing team playing on a different surface. 67% of the time it shockingly works out, but there are some games you just don’t take and NW over Ohio State was one of them.

    Sorry B. Didn’t mean to blow up your spot. Just trying to let people know why you go after the underdogs when the outcomes of games sometimes make it look silly.

    Yea. I will have my posts up later this week. In general the system has been a winner over the year so far. There have been some bad plays, but I reasonably thought NW had the ability to keep it close. I didn’t think for a minute they could win. No big deal.

    Brandon, I need a 15-team NCAA parlay LOCK! Just kidding. I’ll be working on the NFL write up soon. So far I like:

    FALCONS -5.5 over Broncos
    Titans -3 over JAGUARS – Are they due for that loss yet?
    Eagles -9 over BENGALS – If Fitzpatrick remains the QB, I’ll look into that.
    PANTHERS -27.5 over Lions – That’s a joke, they’re 14-point favorites. But Lions won’t score against them and panthers should have their way with them offensively. They can run and pass and they’ll have the Lions D looking like a high school team.
    Cardinals -3 over SEAHAWKS
    STEELERS -4.5 over Chargers

    Damn, there are a lot of good games to take this Sunday!

    I took your bros advice on the Rams with the points. What happened? It was like 24-0 7 minutes into the 1st quarter. How ridiculous is that?

    Yea I saved him from the Rams pick. We played a couple of three team parlays 1. Pitt, Titans, Atlanta. 2. NYG, Titans, Atlanta. So we hit one for a nice price.
