Beating the Book: Handicapping Week 2

Beating the Book: Handicapping Week 2

This article is part of our Beating the Book series.

Week 1 went okay – 10-6 ATS, 2-2-1 in the Supercontest (only got three with the Bengals instead of 3.5 there) and won my best bet (Bengals.) 

This week, it looks like I'm on a lot of ugly and underperforming teams from Week 1 like the Eagles, Giants, Cowboys and Colts. I'll post my Supercontest picks in the comments later in the week.

Bengals +6 at Browns

I wanted to buy low on the Browns, so I made this line four even though I thought it would be three, but the market wasn't having it. So give me the Bengals plus six. 

Browns 23 - 19


Rams -1 at Eagles

The Rams looked good at home against the Cowboys, and the Eagles fell apart in the second half against the Football Team, but this line seems like an overreaction. Give me the home dog. 

Eagles 24 - 23

Panthers +9 at Buccaneers

I made this line 8.5, so I'm narrowly on the Panthers, but it's pretty much a coin flip. Tom Brady didn't look good, and his receivers are banged up too. Take the points. 

Buccaneers 28 - 20

Broncos +7.5 at Steelers

This line jumped after the Monday night games. I had it at seven, so while I was originally on the Steelers (when it was 6.5), I'm now on the Broncos, who play good defense and could get Courtland Sutton back.
