Not a bad start today. For the afternoon games, I took Houston/Denver over 43.5 for $500 and $200 on Oakland money line to win $320.
After being up $755 after the 1:00 games, I hit both of these for another $820.
Going back after it with the Pats game. I'm making a bunch of bets, but for less money. Here they are:
Tease the Over (43) and the Pats (+9). $200
Brady to have more passing yards than Flacco, -15.5 yards, $100
Brady over 25 completions, $100
Welker to have more receiving yards than Boldin, -15.5 yards, $100
Gronk over 69.5 yards, $100
Been about as good a day as I've ever had. In my weekly pick em pool where you pick every game with spreads, I was 10-3 today. I have a 1 game lead with tonight and tomorrow night's games left. However, I took Baltimore giving 3.5 and Green Bay giving 3.5. Every guy that can catch me has the Pats, so if Baltimore covers, I win. That said, I'll still be rooting for the Pats (it's only $150 for a weekly win) and then just hope none of the five guys I'll be tied with have Green Bay, or I win the tiebreaker (combined MNF score, I have 52 points). Of course, this would all be moot had I not forgotten to make my Giants pick on Thursday night. I'm an idiot.
I scored the most points in one of my fantasy leagues, so I won that weekly pool. I have 131 points and still have Gronk left.
All that said, in my biggest money pool ($1,000 entry) where you make 1 college pick and 2 pro picks every week, I managed to go 0-3, even though I went 11-3 picking pro games. The two teams I took in the pool, Detroit and Indy, were 2 of the 3 that I got wrong. I'm currently 1-8 in that pool, and am seriously considering going for last place at this point, which pays you back your entry fee. Of course, if I do that, I'll probably start hitting them correctly.
