SIDE PRIMETIME COMBOS
PUBLIC PUBLIC HOUSE
Much like the Primetime Combo results of last year’s regular season, the people have a much better record on SNF than they do on MNF.
The people are an astounding 4-1-1 with their SNF Side action, while still struggling on MNF at 3-4.
When we concluded last season, remember one of the future lessons we decided on? Correct. We should have trusted the public more on SNF, and stayed contrarian as possible for the MNF bets.
So, guess what we’re gonna do for this week’s picks. Right. We are going to have faith in the people’s hunch on SNF, while staying away from their MNF action.
I know. A little scary, right? It’s roughly the equivalent of expecting Eli to actually produce like he did last week, two weeks in a row. Plus, with the core of our sports betting philosophy being one of constantly bucking the trends, it seems risky to expect this public SNF Side record to be 5-1-1 after seven weeks, but whatever. Let’s ride with them in the SNF action this week, and stay with The House Side on MNF.
By the way, I’m starting Eli over Luck this week in fantasy. I got so sucked in after those two OBJ scores last week, and couldn’t be more fired up for this London matchup against the Rams. I want Eli in Silent Assassin Mode, like Denzel in this bar scene from “The Book of Eli”. Turn up, E.M! Let’s do this thang!
SEAHAWKS +1(-105) @ CARDINALS-1(-115)
TE: J. GRAHAM
K: S. HAUSCHKA
EMOTIONAL RED FLAG ALERT: 10
PEOPLES DOG CROSS(PDC)
PICK: SEAHAWKS +105 & OVER 43.5[over(-115)]
We won’t be bucking the Public Side trends, but I guess we are in a sense. See what I did there? Was that lame? I don’t care. I loved it.
JUMP SHIP AUDIBLE:
It’s a Seattle Moneyline bet or bust, along with a House UNDER 43.5(-105), if the people jump on that OVER 43.5(-115). Plus, we also ride with the Seattle Side as well, if they become the favorite by kickoff, which I totally see happening. We take the House Total Points wherever it ends up.
TEXANS +9(-115) @ BRONCOS -9(-105)
EMOTIONAL RED FLAG ALERT: 0
HOUSE DOG PEOPLES FAVORITE SPECIAL(HDPFS)
PICK: BRONCOS -360 & OVER 40.5
FANTASY FACTOR: NONE
JUMP SHIP AUDIBLE:
We are going for a House Side regardless of where it ends up, so take the Denver Side along with that BRONCOS-360, if need be.
As for the OVER 40.5, let’s stick with it, even after the public grabs it. We are going for a HOUSE CROSS OVER here, staying with the Denver Moneyline pick, and we are not taking the UNDER 40.5, if the people switch to the over.
No Primetime Domino Effect Golden Rule trumping this OVER 40.5, even if the public rides with it this Monday night, following a SNF Total Points win on the OVER 43.5 or UNDER 43.5. Got all that?
Did the play clock run out on me during this audible? I think it might have. Did anyone call a timeout for me? Did we even have any to begin with?
Goodnight, and good luck.
