Profits! Profits! Profits!
If you’ve been following our bets, your bankroll has gone parabolic!
Four of our analysts had one or no losses in Week 7, with Casey Olson at 5-0 and Jen Piacenti, Will Laws and Bill Enright at 5-1.
Let’s build on that momentum and continue to win our bets on Week 8. The Bengals are 10.5-point favorites over the Jets, and our analysts are joining in on that action. Four of our writers chose Cincinnati to cover, the most of any team.
As for other similarities: Richard Johnson and Frank Taddeo are both with the Lions at home against the Eagles, but Johnson is asking for a surprise by taking the Lions to the money line (+150). Johnson, Taddeo and Jen Piacenti (leading with a dominant 29-14 record) are relying on the Buccaneers and putting up 5.5 points against the Saints.
Cheers for another week of profitable picks!
Best bets of week 8
These are our criteria for choosing games:
• All probabilities of Sports betting YES
• Each analyst must choose five games
• Three of the bets must be against the spread or over / under
• The remaining two picks (if all five are not ATS or O / U) may be on the money line (but at least one of those picks must be on an underdog)
• We believe that transparency is paramount in the world of sports betting, that is why we trust Sharp Rank to keep track of all our picks / performance
Jennifer Piacenti’s best bet: 49ers -3.5
I like that San Francisco covers the -3.5 margin in Chicago.
Neither team looked good last week, but at least San Francisco can partially blame a cyclone bomb. Chicago can only blame… Matt Nagy?
Justin Fields has failed to ignite this offense, and Chicago has thrown just 1,788 yards this year. That’s 138 yards less than the Texans. If you can’t get Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney on offense, you can’t win football games.
Meanwhile, Chicago has allowed the fifth-most yards and 12 touchdowns to opposing wide receivers (highest in the league). Deebo Samuel should have a good day, and even Jimmy Garoppolo might look good as Chicago might be without Khalil Mack. Elijah Mitchell should be able to run in this Chicago defense that has allowed the running back the fifth-most rushing yards this year. I pick Kyle Shanahan over Nagy for more than one field goal.
Jen’s season record: 29-14
Casey Olson’s best bet: Bengals -10.5
Back to the well. If it is not broke, do not fix it. Insert all the sayings!
The Jets just came off a 54-13 beating last week against the Patriots, where we vanished them against The Spread (ATS) for another walk.
While the Bengals are the NFL’s “cousin Eddie” right now, Cincinnati is firing at full throttle, averaging 27 points per game (Jets 13.3), while also ranking sixth in the league with 24 shots to go ( Jets 12), literally doubling the Jets in both categories.
Further supporting the Bengals team, Jets quarterback Zach Wilson is offside and former fifth-round pick Mike White will make his first NFL start. The Jets have also been outscored 44-0 in the opening quarters this season, so it may be worth a double knockdown if you know what I mean.
Casey’s season record: 20-16-1
Richard Johnson’s Best Bet: Lions to Win (ML +150)
It’s the NFL and there are no moral victories and blah blah blah, but the Lions really do play hard. I don’t trust the Eagles at this point, but I think the elusive Lions outfit can come out of the dumb here.
Richard’s season record: 11-23-1
Frank Taddeo’s best bet: Bengals 1st quarter -2.5, Bengals 1st half -6
My best bets in Week 9 take us back to one of the NFL’s biggest bet maker. Fading the NY Jets! In Week 9, the Bengals head to MetLife Stadium to face a Jets squad that will not have their starting quarterback in Wilson (knee).
New York, which ranks last in points scored (13.3 points per game), is off a 1-5 start direct (SU) and ATS this season.
We will not put the two digits in the margin of the game. Instead, we will focus on a “double bang” of two secondary markets: the first quarter and first half bets! We will support the Bengals in the first quarter (-2.5) and the first half (-6) as the Jets have been outscored 44-0 in the first quarter of this season, as well as 106-20 in the first half of games. of this season. .
Frank’s season record: 16-24
Bill Enright’s Best Bet: Buccaneers / Saints Over 49.5
Tom Brady and the Bucs’ offense is averaging 33.3 points per game, the third most in the NFL, while the Saints are averaging 23.3 points per game. That’s a combined average of 56.6 per game, essentially one complete touchdown (and one extra point) more than the total for this game (49.5).
While it can be a spooky scene in the stands for Halloween in New Orleans, none of the bullshit in the crowd will scare players out of finding the end zone. All goodies, no gimmicks, when it comes to scoring hitting the Over in the Big Easy.
Bill’s season record: 22-18-1
