Welcome to the recap blog, where we’ll take a look at the results from our previous weeks bets, as well as keep a running season total of our win loss record. Week to week results aren’t important, but I always liked the idea of tracking our bets to see how the season is going as well as providing full transparency to our readers.
Our first of two bets this week examines the Falcons getting 10.5 points over the Chiefs. Fading the Chiefs is never fun and typically results in mild heart attacks, but I care more about my wallet than my health.
Taking a brief look at three of the model's picks: Washington (+3.0) over San Fran, Atlanta (-2.5) over the LA Chargers, and Pittsburgh (+2.5) over Buffalo.
This blog takes a look at the Chargers (-1.5) over the Raiders, as well as the Falcons (-4.0) over the Broncos.
It's been a tough few weeks for the First and Thirty guys, but at least we were able to salvage things slightly with the Saints comeback win on Monday night.
The second bet of the week features the Falcons (-2.0) over the Panthers. This is a classic fade the public bet, the model is ignoring the 0-4 record from the Falcons, instead favoring projections moving forward.
Week 7 was kind to us, but it could have been kinder. We went 3-1 on our bets, with 3 sweat free covers and a very close loss.
This is part one of the recommendations, which covers the Dolphins getting 17 against the Bills, and the Rams giving 3 to the Falcons.
