Beat the Spread Week 3: A Week of Hope

New, 8 comments

Three of the Five went positive and collectively we were +66.5

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Cincinnati Bengals David Kohl-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!

Week 2 Recap

  • Mark: 34
  • RK 1101: 34
  • Pete: -3.5
  • Feslen: -13
  • Sixtus: -54

Only Pete was bite by the trap game that saw the Dolphins not only have a +18.5 line but then went another 24.5 points in the hole beyond that. How Miami?!? How?!? Big winner were Feslen and RK who selected the San Francisco 49ers who were +26 on the week…both also chose Seahawks who were +6 so I guess select west coast teams not named Oakland Raiders? Meanwhile, on the East Coast New York Jets were -14, Dolphins were -24.5, New York Giants were -12.5, of those obviously the Dolphins got Pete but no one fell into the New York trap. The Saints losing Brees got Sixtus but who could have seen that coming?

Onto Week 3!
