This article is part of our Beating the Book series.Last week I went 13-3 by my criterion (Should have taken the Falcons, 49ers and Lions) and 10-6 ATS. I won my best bet (the Broncos), but went 2-3 on LVH contest picks, to go 4-6 on the year there. Overall I'm 28-3 according to my subjective scoring and 15-15-1 ATS.
I'm enjoying this column more than I have in years, largely because the process of figuring out what I really think about the games is more rewarding than trying to find some objective reasoning on which to hang my hat. That said, it's not always any easier. What do I really think about Saints-Panthers, Broncos-Bills, Falcons-Lions and Jets-Dolphins? I'm trying to get clear on that. Other games (Chargers, Bears, 49ers, Seahawks, Redskins) came more easily to me.
I'll pick a best bet and add my LVH picks (when I make them) in the comments.
