The season, at least from my standpoint, can be salvaged. Disappointment can be erased. Positive financial developments can transpire if the next three weeks go far better than the weeks have gone before it.
Although my first Westgate SuperContest voyage—courtesy of Odds Shark—has not been the smoothest of trips, the final three weeks of the season present another possibility to cash.
There’s $15,000 up for grabs to the person (or persons) who deliver the most favorable three-week results. For people like me—people who went 1-4 last week—this presents a rather interesting and favorable proposition. Not all hope is lost…yet.
Last week, all hope was lost. Losers included the Bears (gross), the Dolphins (gross), the Eagles (nope) and the Chargers (double nope). At some point I will pick against New England and it will lose, although it may not come in this lifetime. (Spoiler: We’re gonna try again, though.)
The lone winner was the Browns. That concludes this portion of winners.
I’ve already turned my attention toward more winners, which I hope will come through this week. As always, the goal is to beat Odds Shark’s super smart computer; anything else is gravy.
Ahoy positive three-game stretches. Maybe. Hopefully.
Dolphins (+7.5) vs. Patriots: Back to the well—both of them—with feeling. Miami is better than they have looked, and they will show it accordingly.
Redskins (+6.5) vs. Giants: Curious line here. Given the way the Redskins have looked, it feels like it should be higher. I think Washington offers up a game effort in a loss.
Titans (+2) vs. Jets: The assumption is that the Jets will look like the more talented, less injured team. Ultimately, however, I think Tennessee finds a way to not lose less.
Eagles (-3) vs. Cowboys: It won’t be Thanksgiving, but it won’t have to be. Philadelphia picks up the disappointing pieces from last week and wins by (hopefully) more than three.
Bills (+4.5) vs. Packers: To me, this is the most interesting point spread all week. While Green Bay will ultimately eek out a win, Buffalo makes it tough.
