NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Last week I was a perfect 16-0 on the straight up picks (GO ME!!!), and I went 6-3 against the spread. Not too shabby of a week if you ask me.

Against the Spread

This will be updated as the lines change, up until I make my bets. Remember, if you are planning on making money off of these, don’t. I do this for fun, not to feed my wife and kids.

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.
