NFL Wild Card Weekend Preview and Picks

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 5-9

Last Week ML: 0-2 (-2 units)

2015 Season ATS: 128-133-3 (49%)

2015 Season ML: 13-27 (-.2 units)

2015 Season Alt Lines: 4-2 (+6.65 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

 

With a disastrous bowl season behind me, let’s focus ahead. Back to back 60% seasons ATS is finito. Even if I picked all 11 sides and totals correct in the playoffs, I’d finish at 53%. 

That doesn’t mean we can’t wipe the slate clean and make a few bitcoins in the new year. I won’t be playing all 22 sides and totals, because as I learned this season…large cards are a bad idea.

Rough run on the money line plays lately, including a couple of big misses. A lot more picks will be posted over at the FSB Facebook page the rest of the season, but once I have a post up any additions will be in the comments section of the post. Best of luck and Happy Holidays.

My last 9 weeks I’ve gone 69-57-1 (55%), plus look at those money line and alternative line numbers…almost +14 units for the season.

Bowl season is a great time to find really good and really bad spots for teams. Look for the ML and Alt Line plays to really ramp up between bowl games and late season NFL.

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 4-3

Last Week ML: 0-0

This Week ATS: 1-0 (Cincy/South Florida over 66.5 posted on FSB Facebook page)

2015 Season ATS: 80-85-3 (48%)

2015 Season ML: 8-13 (+3.10 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

 

Two losses on NFL totals by a 1/2 point each last week. That kind of season at FSB, but I’m still persevering with 4 of my last 5 weeks posting a black number. That one week was a 6-13 doozy, so there’s still a steep climb to 60% ATS. 


 

NFL And College Picks — Week 11

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 10-8

This Week: 1-1 (Two plays posted on FSB Facebook page yesterday.)

Last Week ML: 1-1 (+.65 units)

2015 Season ATS: 75-82-3 (48%)

2015 Season ML: 8-13 (+3.10 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

 

I’ve actually had three out of four winning weeks, but the one loser was a 6-13 week. Way too many plays this season, as you can see compared to my picks last year. Hence, the non existent card this week. Plus, it was just too damn nice out to stay inside watching football. Now, as the weekend comes to an end, it’s time to strike. The quest for 60% continues.

NFL And College Picks — Week 10

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 6-13

Last Week ML: 1-4 (-2.35 units)

2015 Season ATS: 64-73-3 (47%)

2015 Season ML: 7-12 (+2.45 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

 

Big set back last week, after getting to .500 for the season. The journey to 60% continues. If you had SMU plus the points last night, my deepest condolences.

NFL And College Football Picks — Week 9

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week ATS: 14-8

Last Week ML: 3-3 (+2.35 units)

This Week ATS: 0-2 (West Va and the UNC/Pitt over given out on the FSB Facebook page)

2015 Season ATS: 58-60-3 (49%)

2015 Season ML: 6-8 (+4.4 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

The old gambling credo is that it takes weeks for people to build up a bankroll and a weekend for them to lose it. Here at FSB, I’m pushing for the opposite to happen. I picked up 10 games over the past two weekends in the win/loss column to hit the .500 for the season, before a disastrous 0-2 night last night.

NFL And College Picks — Week 8

sportsbook-lg-01

Last Week: 6-2-1

This Week: 0-1 (Cal/UCLA 2H over posted on the FSB Facebook page)

Last Week ML: 0-0 (Took 9 favorites, doubt you’ll ever see that again)

2015 Season ATS: 44-51-3 (46%)

2015 Season ML: 3-5 (+2.05 units)

2014 Season ATS: 77-48-5 (62%)

 

This strange season of picks for me got stranger last weekend. If I looked back at previous years of  my picks I’d imagine the sides would be about 2/3 underdogs. Well last week I got in bed with nine favorites and zero underdogs and had my best weekend of the season. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.
