Thanks to the Seattle Seahawks it was a great night in USFantasy.
For the first time this past week, USFantasy had some NFL propositions. Which one of eight teams will score the most points (Prop No. 8) and what will the winning margin be in the Carolina-Seattle game (Prop No. 12).
In my online article I gave out Seattle by 15-20 and 21 or more points. Seattle by 21 or more was the winner, thanks to the Seahawks 40-7 thrashing of the Carolina Panthers. It paid $22.80 per $2 bet. Seattle also won highest scoring team paying $21.20 for $2.
My quarterback exacta box didn’t work out as the closest two were Ben Roethlisberger 3rd and Russell Wilson 4th. However, Chiefs TE Travis Kelce did plenty of damage coming in PLACE in Prop No. 2, paying $23 for 2nd and his SHOW price was $10.80.
After all the bets on Sunday, after a $38 investment, we collected $83.60, bringing the grand total for these articles to $520.10, winning money eight of the nine weeks I have given out picks.
Also a solid 3-1 picking my totals in the paper last week, en fuego as they once used to say on SportsCenter. That phrase became popular when the show was actually good.
Last Week: 3-1
Broncos-Titans OV 43.5: This is an interesting matchup to me, I think the Titans do win this game because their strength on offense is that running game. The Broncos are a team built to stop the Tom Brady’s of the world not the guy getting handoffs. I would be wary if Broncos QB Trevor Siemian doesn’t return this week, however, so beware.
Chargers-Panthers OV 48.5: After a tough San Diego home loss to the Buccaneers, and the already mentioned Seattle blowout, this is a get right game for both teams. I personally think Rivera has lost this Carolina team and should be fired. If they come out without effort for this game the Panthers D could allow second a straight 40-point performance against the San Diego offense.
Seahawks-Packers OV 46: The Packers can’t stop anyone but their defense is getting to the point where they can probably score enough on this Seattle defense, which will push that total over.
SPREAD OF THE WEEK – Ravens +7.5: Time to put the NFL on notice: The team with 2016’s best defense is hitting their stride and they will wake everyone up this week in Foxboro.
