In Week 7, I had my best gambling week of the NFL season so far. I haven’t posted the recap blog yet (Probably will tomorrow), but I hit double digits for the first (And probably only) time this year, finishing 10-4. At the end of my Week 7 Picks blog, I prayed to Satan and said that if I got double digit wins I would become a Satanist. I guess Satan works in mysterious ways, and seeing as I’m a man of my word, I am now officially a Satanist. Hail Satan (So long as he continues to help me win bets).
You know what that means: I’m destined to have a terrible week this week. I don’t make the rules, the Gambling Gods do. Somebody like me isn’t allowed to have too much success, so naturally, Week 8 should be brutal.
Although the odds are clearly against me, let’s take a look at who I’m going with in Week 8.
Washington Redskins (+15.5) @ Minnesota Vikings (-15.5): VIKINGS -15.5
Denver Broncos (+6.5) @ Indianapolis Colts (-6.5): COLTS -6.5
LA Chargers (+4.5) @ Chicago Bears (-4.5): BEARS -4.5
Seattle Seahawks (-3.5) @ Atlanta Falcons (+3.5): SEAHAWKS -3.5
NY Jets (+5.5) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (-5.5): JAGUARS -5.5
Arizona Cardinals (+9.5) @ New Orleans Saints (-9.5): CARDINALS +9.5
Philadelphia Eagles (+1.5) @ Buffalo Bills (-1.5): BILLS -1.5
Cincinnati Bengals (+12.5) @ LA Rams (-12.5): RAMS -12.5
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+2.5) @ Tennessee Titans (-2.5): TITANS -2.5
NY Giants (+7.5) @ Detroit Lions (-7.5): LIONS -7.5
Carolina Panthers (+6.5) @ San Francisco 49ers (-6.5): 49ERS -6.5
Cleveland Browns (+12.5) @ New England Patriots (-12.5): PATRIOTS -12.5
Oakland Raiders (+6.5) @ Houston Texans (-6.5): TEXANS -6.5
Green Bay Packers (-4.5) @ Kansas City Chiefs (+4.5): PACKERS -4.5
Miami Dolphins (+14.5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-14.5): STEELERS -14.5
Like I said above, I’m expecting a bad week because I had a good one last week. That’s just the type of gambler I am: Bad.
I’m also extremely shook at the fact that I only took one underdog this week (Cardinals), but I just didn’t like the spreads this week and had to go with the favorites. Hopefully this works out for me, but most likely it won’t.
Kickoff for the Skins/Vikings game is a little over an hour away so hopefully I’ll be able to start on the right foot and be 1/1 by the end of the night.
Good luck this week everybody.
