Had better weeks, but with 7 wins - 5 losses and one push, I'm pulling in at 50 - 31, against the spread, for the season.

Random thoughts...
Congrats to the Bucs on their first win... Shocked that the Seahawks couldn't cover... Steelers put a beating on the Chiefs but I'm not convinced they're out of the water just yet... Raiders looked pitiful, but still skated by against the spread - Strange week. No doubt oddsmakers will be tightening the reigns with Denver's offense next Sunday.
