How to play:

Here is the way this game works. I will supply the Weeks matchups. With each matchup will be the line as of the last 24 hours. What you need to do is:

  • Step 1: Pick 3 teams who are NOT the favorites that you think will cover the spread
  • Step 2: Well…that’s it

What you are trying to do, is select the three teams most likely to beat the spread in the comments below. You will get the points POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE that each team earns vs. the Spread. Also, if you miss a week, 5 points will be deducted from your score, so once you start, you can’t quit!

First the good. Four of us all picked the Dolphins on a +15 and we were collectively right to the tone of 1.5. Then the bad, the Bears were nickel and dimed across the board save Feslen who took the Eagles at a +20 this week and for that, he triumphantly sits in 2nd place.
