NFL Picks, Week 1 – 2015 Season

nflpICKSFor the first time, I will be sharing my weekly NFL game picks that I will be submitting in my office pool, putting my reputation as an analyst on the line.

I will be using an analytical system I developed based on spreads provided by Las Vegas, and how well they tend to do when they provide certain spreads. I added a few other factors to lean my pick one way or another where the odds makers are about even in their performance. I developed this system last year and got 178 games of 256 correct. That was 10.4 per week on average, a 69% correct rate that was as good as the odds makers, and better than all the ESPN analysts.

What’s the Vegas Odds the Patriots Will Cheat for Super Bowl XLIX?

The Super Bowl is the biggest betting day of the year. There are bets and odds available for just about everything, including some really ridiculous things!

Given that premise, I want to know the odds being offered for something far less ridiculous, which is the New England Patriots cheating. Seriously, they are serial cheaters. When they get caught, it’s not for an instance, but a long running scheme they had been running to the point of getting caught. They know the NFL marketing machine well that big penalties aren’t going to be handed out so that the crime is well worth the risks. No wins forfeited. No Super Bowl trips retracted. But also no big prizes if they don’t cheat either cause have they won any Super Bowls since Spy Gate?

So yes, very seriously, what’s the Vegas line for the Patriots cheating this Super Bowl XLIX???

I’d bet on more than even. Question is will the Pats get caught, not would they do it. 🙂

However, if the world celebrated Mother’s Day, it would be easily the biggest holiday on the planet because we all have Mothers. Of course, we all have Fathers as well, but there aren’t nearly as many deliquent Moms as there are Dads so Mother’s Day would rule. It already does given Father’s Day doesn’t rank with Mother’s Day in the measure previously mentioned.
