Sports Bet Review (NFL Week 8, 2020)

  1. W – CLE vs. LV Under 52.5 (-110)
    The 50 mph gusts in the first half were a good sign, and a missed field goal and seemingly anemic offense through the same period also bode well. Red zone inefficiency and gusts sealed this one as an early win.
  2. L – GB -.5 vs. MIN/TEN +.5 @ CIN(-110)
    Two surprising upsets for two contenders. Lucky to have these teased together if I’m being honest. Green Bay was much more in this game, and had a chance to tie the game late. However, the Titans still look to be hungover from last week, and the Bungles truly played up to them.
  3. L – BAL -4 vs. PIT (-110)
    Pittsburgh is good. Mistakes from Lamar Jackson cost the Ravens what should’ve been a much more competitive game.
  4. L – DET vs. IND +10 /MIA+10 vs. LAR (-120)
    Betting on the Lions only bring pain. Never again, please, never let me do it again. Really let down that this fell on the opposite end of a raucous Miami effort to net Tua his first win as a starter.
  5. W – KC vs. NYJ -13.5/BUF+2 vs. NE (-110)
    The Chiefs took care of business and the Bills squeaked out a close one against a scrappy Patriots team. It wasn’t certain against New England, but it pulled through.
  6. L – NE Moneyline (+180, Half Unit)
    This one was close, Cam lost it for us. I was thinking this would be a “kitchen sink” game for the Pats, and it was. However, the Pats failed to execute as needed to win.
  7. W – SEA +3 vs. SF/ LV +8.5 @ CLE (-110)
    Las Vegas looked to be the better team all day, both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. In gusty conditions, Josh Jacobs and Devonta Booker thrived. The 49ers had a terrible outing, with the Seahawks easily covering the three points, winning by a blowout.
  8. W – DEN +3 vs. LAC (+100)
    Denver cannot sustain a drive. I thought this would be a game where Justin Herbert is outmatched on the road, but he looked to be in full control the entire game up until the fourth quarter. In classic Chargers fashion there was some late game heroics/chicanery which led to a Broncos win. Very thankful that the extra point went through so that this bet was safely secured outside of overtime.
  9. L – Carson Wentz Longest Pass Over 37.5 Yards @ DAL (+100, Half-Unit)
  10. L – Carson Wentz Over 30.5 Rushing Yards Yards @ DAL (+200, Half-Unit)
  11. W – CHI +10 vs. NO/PHI -5 vs. DAL (-110)
    Chicago doesn’t make it easy, really the entire NFC North has been a pain to bet on/against today. However, they ultimately pulled through when it mattered, as the ten points was more than sufficient regardless of the overtime outcome. In fact, I found myself cheering for a tie. Slim win for the Saints, sure! A paper tiger for sure from my view though until Brees can get some receiving talent back.
    The Eagles looked terrible in the first half, failing to protect Wentz on nearly every play.

On the day we hit 5-4.5 getting us to 49-33.5-2 for the season.
