Betting Preview – NFL Week 12

WEEK  11 BETTING PREVIEW RECAP So the least said about Week 11’s selections the better.

Onwards we move […]

NFL Betting Preview – Week 7

WEEK 6 RECAP Not the best week last week, despite Geno Smith’s late pick six seeing Denver somewhat fortunately covering the spread. In our other main selections, the total was well over in Buffalo against New England, while for the luckless Jaguars, I echo Pacman Jones’ words: “Do your job” Josh Scobee! CINCINNATI BENGALS @ INDIANAPOLIS […]
