cin BAL 11.5


I really wanted to pick the Giants/Patriots game because of the Giants' past successes as underdogs and as Patriots upsetters.. but it does not look good for the Giants. Eli is 2nd string now, and while peeps have hyped up Daniel Jones a bit, he doesn't actually look so great. I imagined some fun scenario where Brady is made useless by the rain, but it turns out that Brady actually has about a 10% higher success rate when playing in rainy conditions. :|

Maybe Jones gets injured so Eli Steps in? :(
Maybe Brady finally gets injured so the Patriots limp on 2nd string?

I might change my mind and give the Giants a chance, but at the moment, I'll pick the Bengals again :p

Danny Dimes has been overhyped since the beginning.

If this was pick-two late season, I'd double it up with SF. But alas.

Hrothgar, 49's D is no slouch. Pat's D is totally awesome this year. 34 pts allowed in 5 games.

Ah shit, I just remembered that pit was on their #3 qb. The chargers aren't THAT bad.

Change to:

I was looking at these 2 picks as well. Trust the 9ers more than the texans to get the win though.

(Updating/changing bet)
Fuck it! I’ve been betting on the Giants in underdogs specifically for moments like this! :D ... they’ll probably get trashed, but I’d hate myself if it ends up being even a close game. ;p
Ideal game: it was all a ruse! New guy was just a trick to scramble Bill into switching strategies; new guy gets pulled after Q1, Eli comes in and surprises the Pats, Brady can’t hold the ball, slips, Pats put in 2nd stringer. Giants 34, Pats 31
;D

How long until this Daniel Jones hype dies off? He's looked pretty bad when not playing against the marshmallow league.

At least I was wrong about the Bengals too! I was worried that I'd changed my pick from a win to a loss, but I was going to lose anyways ;D

My picks are 4-2 moneyline and 5-1 ATS on the season. Nice.

Same rate here :)

I bet on SF -10.5 this week too. Having a decent time betting so far this season... especially considering it's only week 6. It tends to go better and better, as the season goes on and the teams become more clear.

Going for record profits AND a first Utopia Underdogs win!

Double check your bets/points! I was tallying with a headache, so I may have missed something or added incorrectly.

..
[hood]: "well so far I feel stupid."

I didn't realize what you meant until I had to change "hood 10 (3 + 7)" to "hood 6.5 (3 + 3.5)" ;D

..
Bengals keep having close games... I can't tell if it's because they're *almost* winning or if the other teams just let them get close like a cat playing with a dying mouse ;)

Hey, the chargers were supposed to be a decent team this year. While the squeelers felt like they were gonna have a decent game, it shouldn't have been enough to be a full power chargers with a 3rd string QB. Alas.

Points be points.
