Rough week....rough rough rough

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!

Beat the Spread Week 15

BAL -16 Baltimore Ravens New York Jets
NE -9.5 New England Patriots Cincinnati Bengals
TB -3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Detroit Lions
GB -4.5 Green Bay Packers Chicago Bears -3.5
TEN -3 Tennessee Titans Houston Texans 6
KC -9.5 Kansas City Chiefs Denver Broncos
NYG -3.5 New York Giants Miami Dolphins -12.5 -12.5
PHI -4.5 Philadelphia Eagles Washington Redskins -5.5
SEA -6 Seattle Seahawks Carolina Panthers 0
OAK -6.5 Oakland Raiders Jacksonville Jaguars
CLE -2.5 Cleveland Browns Arizona Cardinals
MIN -2.5 Minnesota Vikings Los Angeles Chargers
LAR -1.5 Los Angeles Rams Dallas Cowboys
SF -11 San Francisco 49ers Atlanta Falcons 18
PIT -2 Pittsburgh Steelers Buffalo Bills 9
NO -9 New Orleans Saints Indianapolis Colts -18
Total Week 15 -21.5 0 -12 14.5 0 0


For a second consecutive week we had 3 submissions meaning RK, Sixtus and Heath got the automatic 5 point deduction. That actually might have been the smart play as it would be an improvement over the -21.5 that Feslen suffered and the -12 that Pete had. Perhaps they are onto something here…. I would have joined the collective if not for perhaps the most absurd upset this season as Atlanta has now beat New Orleans and San Francisco as a 5-9 team.
