My fellow gamblers, good evening. I know the picks got posted late last week. It might not matter to any of you, but as I said when introducing myself to all of you fine people, I moderate a sizable sports betting forum and frequently see people try to edit their picks or submit them after the games have started.
I will never do that to you so if you have any questions about whether those were my picks, you can see me with the same bets posted and time stamped on that forum here:
Overall it was a fine week going 4-2. I would have liked to add in props for the final presidential debate, but sadly they weren't posted yet. I will have prop bets up for the actual election when we get closer. One of the biggest scores of my life was election night 2012 when my book posted Obama as an underdog to take Florida. I won more money on that than I have on several Super Bowls. Keeping the focus on football though.
Season Record: Overall (18-13) Spread (12-7) Total (2-2) Teaser (4-4)
CHI/GB u46 - The Bears have only broken 17 points once this season and it was against the Colts, who are bottom-five in the league in points-per-game allowed. If Chicago scores 17 then Green Bay needs to put up 30 for this bet to lose, which is something the Packers have only done once this season and that was against the Lions who are bottom-ten in the league in points-per-game allowed.
You have to go back to week 10 of last year to find a game that Rodgers has broken the 300 yard passing mark. That plus Eddie Lacy being ruled out makes me think this is going to be an old-fashioned "black and blue division" game. I could see the spread going either direction, but I like the total in this game to stay nice and low.
