Beat the Spread Week 12: LOTS of movement this week

The Jets came through big?

NFL: New York Jets at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

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!

Pete did two things this week. First he moved into first place knocking me out and ending my seven week reign at number 1. Second he joined Sixtus in a 31.5 pt swing with their Falcons pick and he joined everyone not named Mark and Heath in their 18.5pts in the Jets pick. Feslen was bit by the rough Texans outing (I really expected bigger things out of Texas too) and finally RK was the lone believer in the Broncos who came reeeeal close to beating Minnesota.


  1. Pete: 62 pts (up 1 spot)
  2. Mark: 59.5 pts (down 1 spot)
  3. Sixtus: 28 pts (up 2 spots)
  4. RK 1101: 8 pts (up 1 spot)
  5. Feslen: -8.5 pts (down 2 spot)
  6. Heath: -50 pts (no movement)
