Favorites destroyed the dogs last week, which is a contrarian’s nightmare. Home dogs were slaughtered. Given that, I was very fortunate to escape with an 8-8 win-loss mark.
The losses were very demoralizing — as the live home dogs were pretty much out of the game early.
Worse, I took at least three horrific beats on first quarter plays — the worst of which was in the DEN-CINCY game when an official blew a call when the runner intentionally ran ot of bounds with :22 left on the clock (the next play was a CINCY field goal). Yet the official inexplicably let the clock run and I lost the wager. The other horrible beat was getting points in the TAMPA-OAK first quarter. Bucs were kicking a FG to go up with about 4 minutes left in the first, when OAK blocked the kick and runs it back 30 yards the other way. OAK proceeds to milk the clock all the way down to :30 kicks a FG and I lose. Then, there was HOU-BUFF where it’s scoreless until :36 seconds left and then HOU runs a trick play and throws a 40-yard touchdown pass. Any play in bounds there would have run the clock down to a scoreless tie and a win. DAL-ATL should have gone over as well, as the first four drives crossed midfield — including three drives within the opponents 25-yard line. But all we could muster was 6 points.
So, four brutal first quarter losses and three live dogs that failed to show resulted in a maddening day. But, getting to the .500 mark was somewhat a relief considering the way the early games turned out.
Coming off the frustration, going 8 wins and 8 losses for a net loss of -.6 units.
My overall record remains in the black in all categories, but need to improve. Lot’s of attractive wagers this week, including two “Best Bets.”
Making 14 wagers on Sunday.
