Hit six of his eight-player prop bets. Wins: Matthew Stafford over 288.5 yards passing (334), and over 2.5 passing touchdowns (3); Cordarrelle Patterson over 35.5 yards rushing (60), and anytime touchdown scorer (yes); A.J. Brown anytime touchdown scorer (yes); Jonathan Taylor over 64.5 yards rushing (107). His two player-prop losses came from Packers teammates Davante Adams and A.J. Dillon: Adams over 95.5 yards receiving (76); Dillon over 9.5 yards receiving (2).

“Cordarrelle Patterson is the man. Atlanta and New Orleans were reminders of why you have to bet at the right time; wins/pushes on the early numbers, losses on the closing.”

– The Professor

The Professor went 2-2 with four plays on over/under total points. Wins: Eagles-Raiders over 49.5 points (55); Bengals-Ravens over 47 points (58). Losses: Football Team-Packers over 48.5 points (34); Lions-Rams first-half under 26 points (33).

Rounding out his Week 7 betting card was six bets on NFL point spreads, going 3-3. The Professor won Packers -8 and hit on two dogs that won outright: Colts +4.5 and Titans +5.5. Losses came from the Eagles +3, and two narrow losses from favorites: Falcons -2.5 (they won by two) and Saints -4.5 (they won by three).


Put together 17 plays for NFL Week 7, with 13 point-spread bets and four overs on total points. First, the “overs.” The Bartender won Bengals-Ravens 46.5 points (58) and Eagles-Raiders 49 points (55). His losses: Panthers-Giants over 43.5 (28, with 15 combined points after three quarters) and Chiefs-Titans over 56.5 points (30, the Chiefs accounted for three of those points).

“They say football is a game of inches. Following a few narrow loses this week, I can attest, handicapping is also a game of inches.” 

– The Bartender

The Bartender cashed seven of 13 point-spread plays, starting with Broncos +3.5 at Cleveland on Thursday night. He got down on the three biggest spreads of NFL Week 7, taking the Cardinals -17.5 (W), Buccaneers -12.5 (W), and Rams -15 (L). Other Sunday wins included the Patriots -7, Titans +5.5, Packers -7.5, and Raiders -3. In the early Sunday window, his losses were Ravens -6.5, Panthers -3, and a half-point Falcons non-cover at -2.5. The Bartender went 0-2 on his primetime plays, with the 49ers losing outright as 3.5-point favorites on Sunday night and the Saints failing to cover -4.5 on Monday night.


Compiled a mixed bag of betting tastes, from point spreads to over/unders, a two-team teaser, and a player prop. The Knish split his four plays on point spreads, hitting Browns -2 and Colts +4.5. He lost Falcons -2.5 and Saints -4.5. He teased the Packers’ line down to -2 and the Dolphins’ up to +8.5, hitting both for the win. His player prop on Kyler Murray over 2.5 touchdowns (3) also cashed.

“I super suck and am awful. [Editor’s Note, WHile being up 20%+ On the Season!]”

– The Knish

As for his four over/under bets, he won Bengals-Ravens over 47 points (58) and Cardinals’ first-half over 16.5 points (17). The Chiefs were a big-time letdown. They scored three points during their NFL Week 7 road loss, handing The Knish beats on Chiefs first-half over 16.5 points (zero) and Chiefs full-game over 30.5 points (3).
