NFL Week 2 Betting Reaction

Posted by in NFL Picks on September 15th, 2008 | Comment »

Overall, I moved up just 2 units this week. I hit the Packers for 8 units, but lost on the Steelers for 6 units, won the Giants for 3, lost the Saints for 3, won the Cardinals for 2, lost the 49ers/under parlay for 2. The Steelers outcome would have been different if it wasn’t for the rain and the Saints just blew the game in the 4th quarter. Here’s a bigger look at the games.

Wow, what a game the Packers/Lions game turned out to be. If you missed how it went down, the Packers jumped out to a 21-0 lead, took it 21-3 in the half, the Lions decided to play football in the 2nd half and were starting to make a comeback. The Lions then made it a 24-16 game. The Packers then gave up a safety after the punter was unable to catch the ball when they were pinned down at the 10. On the next drive Calvin Johnson came up with a huge TD to give the Packers a 25-24 lead. The Packers drove down field off a huge Greg Jennings reception and came out with a field goal to take the lead back, but it was only a 2-point lead. I needed to cover 3 points, so I was screaming at Jackson through my TV for dropping a pass that would have set up a 1st and goal. On the next drive, however, Kitna gave me a gift and there were plenty more to come. Kitna threw not one, not two, but three INTs in the final 5 minutes off the game that were returned for TDs. Thank you Jon Kita. Damn, it sucks to be a Lions fans. Why do they even watch games on Sunday? Why go through the agony each week? Well, I my big play of the week.

My other big play was the Steelers, and althought they got the W, they couldn’t cover. It was a 10-6 game and the spread was Steelers -6.5 Unfortunately, the rain definitly played a part in that outcome. The Steelers were up 10-3 with 3 minutes left and Romeo Crenel decided to kick a field goal when it was 4th and 7 on the 20 with 3 minutes left. I have no idea why. Was he playing against the spread? What an idiot. And the Browns fans let him hear it.

This Week’s Record:
— Straight Up: 8-6
— Against the Spread: 8-5-1
— “Spreads to Take” Against the Spread: 4-2
— Betting Units: +2

Cumulative Record:
— Straight Up: 19-11 (.633)
— Against the Spread: 18-11-1 (.620)
