The Cardinals and Browns landed on the exact number last Sunday which gives us our first push of the season, although you’ll be happy to know that we have some more value for Week 7 after some lean weeks in terms of the number of selections.
Whilst we’re on that subject I did have someone directly email me last week to say that they were unfollowing as I wasn’t providing ‘enough’ selections, and for me that’s the first sign of gambling becoming an addiction. It may not sound like much, but in his/her head they NEED a certain number of selections each week to feed their addiction, and that’s a dangerous path. I have never and will never provide a selection unless I have firm reasoning and that I’m backing it myself, this is exactly the same as my golf service. This person clearly wants 4 or 5 selections every Sunday so they can get that ‘buzz’, whether those selections are in fact profitable or not probably makes no difference to them. All I’m saying guys/girls is to be careful.
Carolina Panthers at New York Giants – Giants +3 @ 1.91 with Several (back down to +3)
It’s been a very disappointing season for the Giants, some had them pegged as a potential playoff team, but injuries and turnovers have been very costly. After being thoroughly embarrassed by the Rams last Sunday they need to redeem themselves in front of the home faithful. The Panthers after a hot start now sit at .500 and I can’t say I’m surprised; I mean two of those were against the Jets and Texans for crying out loud. Carolina’s road record doesn’t make for pleasant reading with just 4 wins in their last 16 games. If the Giants can get back at least some of their receiving talent, they could sneak the ‘W’.
Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers – Football Team +8.5 @ 1.91 with Unibet (back down to +7.5)
Nope, I’m not drunk. I am taking the Washington ‘Football Team’ (I hate that name) to cover the spread. For the life of me I can’t figure out why the Washington defence has performed so badly thus far, but after being called out on National TV by a lot of pundits I think this may be the game that the front 4 wreaks havoc. For me Taylor Heinicke has been more than serviceable and has lived up to his end of the bargain. The Packers look strong on offense with Rodgers under centre, but the defence did look fragile, even against one of the worst offences in the league (Bears). I think 8/9 is a big head start and I can see the Redskins giving the Packers a fright as we approach Halloween.
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers – Colts +4.5 @ 1.93 with Mansion Bet (back down to +3)
We’ve already been successful twice this season going against the 49ers and I don’t see any reason why we can’t do it again this week. As I’ve said before the defence isn’t anywhere near as good as it has been in recent years and the offence seems to be struggling to find an identity, especially with difficulties in the run game. The Colts have had a rough start to the season but with Wentz looking more comfortable under centre I feel like they may make a run to get themselves back into playoff contention. San Fran have won only 1 game at home of their last 10!
All selections are advised at 1 point each, with a 100 point bankroll.
