Week 11 Recap

SportsBookThe first annual Pick Bonanza didn’t go they way I had hoped (5-7).  I made money from slot machines and table games but nothing from sports betting.  For awhile in the fourth quarter of the 1:00 PM games, I had a six game parlay hitting.  The experience was entertaining and fun.  Next year’s trip to Windsor, Ontario should be even better and hopefully more lucrative.  Here’s how the picks worked out.

WINS

(W) Dallas Cowboys 24 Miami Dolphins 14

I took the Cowboys to beat a 1 point spread against them.  They came through without much trouble.

(W) Tampa Bay Buccaneers 45 Philadelphia Eagles 17

I got the win by taking the Buccaneers to beat a 6 point spread against them.  Thanks, Sanchez.

(W) Washington Redskins 16 Carolina Panthers 44

This was a prediction that Carolina would cover a spread of 7 points, which they did easily.

(W) New York Jets 17 Houston Texans 24

I bet this game would go under 44 1/2 points.  A rare win on Over/Under for me.

(W) Denver Broncos 17 Chicago Bears 15

My only other win on over/under bets this week.  This game was a bet on under 41 total points.

LOSSES

(L) Oakland Raiders 13 Detroit Lions 18

I predicted Oakland would cover a 1 point spread in their favor.  It all looked promising until the Raiders lost their starting center to injury late in the game.

(L) Indianapolis Colts 24 Atlanta Falcons 21

I’m not sure what’s going on with the Falcons anymore.  I’m giving up the idea that they will regain their early season form.  This was a loss that the Falcons would cover a 6 point spread in their favor.

(L) St. Louis Rams 13 Baltimore Ravens 16

Case Keenum did not look better than Nick Foles as I predicted, but I’m still I lost this.  The Rams were up most of the game and at one point I stopped watching because I thought this game was a lock for me.  I ended up losing this game on a bet that the Rams would beat a 2 1/2 point spread against them.

(L) Oakland Raiders 13 Detroit Lions 18

I double dipped on the loss in this game predicting this game would go over 48 points.  What happened, Amari? 

(L) Indianapolis Colts 24 Atlanta Falcons 21

Another double loss.  This time I predicted this game would go over 47 1/2 points.  Close, but Atlanta let me down again.

(L) St. Louis Rams 13 Baltimore Ravens 16

More over/under woes.  This time, I predicted Case Keenum would light it up and put plenty of points up on the board.  This was a loss on predicting the game would go over 41 points.

(L) Tampa Bay Buccaneers 45 Philadelphia Eagles 17

A big ol’ L for picking this game to stay under 45 points.
