Every week I write how each game is more bizarre than the last, and this one was no different. What stood out more than the Ravens bursting out of the 0-4 coffin just as the hammer was about to strike the final nail was Todd Haley and Mike Tomlin’s Tom Coughlin-esque end-game management. Good coaches call plays in combination like a skilled billiards player who not only knocks the ball in the pocket, but leaves the cue ball in good position for his next shot.
About half an hour in, I thought it would be a brutal week, and it was just sort of bad. I went 5-10 ATS, though 3-2 in the LVS SuperContest and 2-1 on best bets. Some of my important teams did well, others did poorly. In one I wisely used Nick Foles over Colin Kaepernick. Another way of putting it is I foolishly started Foles over Andy Dalton. If you think streaming QBs is a picnic, let my experience be a cautionary tale.
Okay, I lied. I’m putting in three more $5 Rallys today. Yesterday was so annoying because I had two Rich Hill lineups, both of which failed to cash, and 11 Carlos Martinez ones. In truth the Martinez lineups weren’t great and only a couple would have had minimum cashes had he gone off anyway. My bankroll was $1310.24, now it’s $1230.24.
