Week 14 was one of those weeks that I thought was going to suck betting wise. The board did not look very inviting when I first looked at it, so I did the only thing I could think of when I’m faced with adversity: Waited until last minute on Saturday night to lock in my picks after drinking for a few hours. Did this method work? Let’s take a look at how I did in Week 14.
REDSKINS +14 FINAL SCORE: 20-15 pACKERS (WIN)
49ERS +3.5 FINAL SCORE: 48-46 49ERS (WIN)
TEXANS -8 FINAL SCORE: 38-24 BRONCOS (LOSS)
LIONS +14 FINAL SCORE: 20-7 VIKINGS (WIN)
BUCS -2.5 FINAL SCORE: 38-35 BUCS (WIN)
FALCONS -2 FINAL SCORE: 40-20 FALCONS (WIN)
RAVENS -6 FINAL SCORE: 24-17 RAVENS (WIN)
BROWNS -6.5 FINAL SCORE: 27-19 BROWNS (WIN)
DOLPHINS +6 FINAL SCORE: 22-21 JETS (WIN)
JAGUARS +4 FINAL SCORE: 45-10 CHARGERS (LOSS)
PATRIOTS -2.5 FINAL SCORE: 23-16 CHIEFS (LOSS)
CARDINALS +3 FINAL SCORE: 23-17 STEELERS (LOSS)
TITANS -2.5 FINAL SCORE: 42-21 TITANS (WIN)
SEAHAWKS -1 FINAL SCORE: 28-12 RAMS
GIANTS +11 FINAL SCORE: 23-17 GIANTS
When in doubt, drink it out. I ended up going 10-5 in Week 14, tying my season high once again. This brings my season record to a still bad, but increasingly more respectable, 76-111-1. I say increasingly more respectable because if you’ve been following along, my winning percentage way way worse than this at one point. If I can keep stringing some double digit wins together to close out the season, I might be able to right the ship and get close to breaking even. It’s a snowballs chance in Hell, but it’s good to have dreams. I’m gonna try my hardest to do exactly that for the last few weeks. Don’t call it a comeback!
I’m working on my Week 15 picks right now, and I’m going to stick with my last minute drunk picks strategy that worked out well for me last week, so be on the lookout for those shortly.
