This article is part of our Beating the Book series.I went 7-6 last week, but it was a bad 7-6 as I was dead wrong on my best bet, the Eagles, and went 2-3 in the Supercontest. What's worse, I was 6-2 through the early wave and brimming with confidence before getting wiped out in the afternoon and night games. It's par for the course, though. NFL handicapping is a wild beast, and every time you think you've tamed it, it throws you off its back.
This week I have a lot of big favorites, i.e., what used to be the sucker side, but I'm sticking to the lines I made. The Colts and Chargers feel especially that way to me, and I have misgivings about the Giants, Bills, Packers and Seahawks on the dog side. Teams I like best are the Falcons, Ravens and Broncos.
Remember, the key to a happy holiday is to go 2-1 ATS on Thanksgiving. <
