USFantasy exactas worth the risk because of payouts

The reason that these USFantasy EXACTAS pay so well? Because they are difficult to hit.
Of my picks from Saturday’s online-only article, only Prop No. 3 LeSean McCoy and David Johnson came close to the exacta winner, finishing 2nd and 4th respectively. I also gave out EXACTA plays for Prop No. 1 and No. 2 but those weren’t even in the ballpark.
Payouts for each Prop EXACTA were: Prop No. 1 Drew Brees, QB, NO and Carson Palmer, QB, AZ $148; Prop No. 2 Jordy Nelson, WR, GB and Golden Tate, WR, DET wasn’t hit as no one had the combination of Nelson and Tate. If you had Nelson with anyone, you received a $16.40 payout with Nelson and anyone with Tate got $51 cash. Prop No. 3 Devonta Freeman, RB,ATL and LeSean McCoy, RB, BUF $129.80. All prices are for $2 bets.
Keep going after it everyone, the next games will probably be on Christmas eve so while you can’t use your winnings to pay for presents now, you could actually use them to cover what you already spent.
As for my picks in the paper, yeeesh, thanks Alex Smith for the backbreaking INT in the end zone with your team already up 10 in a defensive game. Way to spark the Titans to victory. So a 0-2-1 week means winning pick 100 has eluded me again. Let’s see if we can do it in style as all I want for Christmas is to hit 100 wins before I make 90 losses.
Last Week: 0-2-1
Bucs-Saints OV 52.5: The last time this was a big defensive struggle in Tampa, moving this thing indoors says to me it’s going to be a shootout this time.
Falcons-Panthers OV 52.5: Atlanta has been the NFL’s big OVER team, 12-2. I don’t see why they can’t do it on the road in Carolina, plus the Panthers will get their scores as well.
Titans-Jaguars OV 43.5: With only two games left the Titans are tied with the Texans for the AFC South lead. Tennessee pounds the rock in this game against new interim Jacksonville head coach Doug Marrone, who won’t draw up anything to stop the Tennessee offense.
Chargers-Browns OV 43.5: Finally, Phillip Rivers will have some time to actually throw the ball in this game. Both teams are just awful, could be a fun game on the scoreboard with lots of scoring on both sides.
Bengals-Texans OV 41: I think the Houston offense is a completely different squad with Tom “Macho Man” Savage under center. I can actually see a blowout here for the Texans since the Bengals just blew an embarrassing lead to the Steelers in Cincinnati. Which leads to…
SPREAD OF THE WEEK – Houston -2: The Macho Man leads the Texans to the brink of the AFC South title with a crushing victory over the Bungles.
