5-0 on locks last week… Is that good? That’s good right? I think so. I think that’s pretty good.
Outside of my 5-0 record on Locks, your boy Ham got back on track with an 8-6 overall week. Looking to keep that streak up this week with a new slate of games. After all those vegas zone numbers last week, we’re back to more in that 3 and 7 range here.
After nailing New England at -8 last night, I figured I’d add a fifth lock of the weekend with NY Giants +3.5. To hear me and Consoli’s thoughts on this weekend’s games, go listen to The What’s The Action Podcast – NFL Week 8. We’ve got some thoughts on the World Series, FOX dropping the TV signal, a Pete Rose Cam, Sammy Watkins’ illiteracy, and Clemson murdering Miami, but jump to 18:40 into the Podcast to get to our Week 8 Bets. A couple of the lines moved more than a half a point, including Cleveland from +4.5 to +5.5, and Detroit from +5 to +3.5. Obviously still like Cleveland getting an extra point, and I think I still like Detroit at just over a field goal. Everything else remained mostly the same.
Go give the Podcast a listen, and check out the picks below.
