NFL Betting Guide (WEEK 2)

I got the sheet from my bookie last night and I’d be straight up lying to myself if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated by some of the matchups. I asked him to give me a little insider trading info on who a lot of people were taking this week as if I was the Wolf of Wall Street, but he refused. There must be some type of Bookie Oath that they’re all required to take when they first start out or something. With the exception of the Chargers/ Bills game there really aren’t any locks this week, and now that I’ve already mentioned one game, lets take a look at the rest of the matchups and who I hesitantly took in each of them this week

CHARGERS


I hinted at it in the first paragraph but this week is a bit of a doozy. The spreads were not nearly as big as I was hoping for and that leads to a very high chance of some upsets.  These spreads have me second guessing myself like a dyslexic kid trying to read out loud, and I’ve honestly considered reverting back to the coin flipping strategy I used during The World Cup. But hey, this is why we bet. High risk, high reward. That being said, as long as I go 50% or above I’ll be somewhat satisfied for this week given the tough matchups. Only thing to do now is sit back and wait.
