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.
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.
Giants + 3 over the Falcons - W
Tampa Bay + 6 over Cincinnati - W
Washington – 10 over the Titans - L
Jets – 2 ½ over Miami - W
Detroit – 1 over Buffalo - W
Dallas – 13 over Houston - W
New Orleans – 3 over Philly - TIE
Seahawks – 3 over the Rams - L
Baltimore – 3 over Carolina - L
San Diego – 10 over the 49ers - W
Pittsburgh – 7 over Kansas City - W
Denver – 15 over Oakland - L
