I’m writing this after about four hours of sleep due to a downtime at my work, so hopefully this weeks picks aren’t disastrous. Last week I was 11-4 in the straight up picks, and I was 4-4 (one game was a push and didn’t count) against the spread.

Panthers @ Buccaneers: Panthers
Against the Spread
Remember, I do this for fun. If you’re expecting to make money off of these, don’t.
When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors.
