In the "damned-near impossible to do, but by God, I did it" category, I was a sparkling 11-3 last week against the spread, and still managed to blow the Lock of the Week and the Trifecta. In other galling news, Indianapolis cost me three-team and six-team parlays which would have paid $130 on $8 worth of tickets.
Upon further review, Ryan Womeldorf of Two Pad Stack (yeah, it's a hockey site, what of it?) called me out for being an utter moron for taking Indy when New England has clearly been the better team the past umpteen weeks. In my defense, well ... there isn't one. I thought it would take Bill Belichick another week or two to work Jonas Gray into the offense rather than him suddenly becoming Jim Freaking Brown.
By the way, doesn't that name - Jonas Gray - sound like the normal moniker of some caped superhero? I bet it does to the Colts.
Tonight's contest is below. See you on Sunday!
Kansas City (-7.5) at OAKLAND (42.5): You know it's bad when the Raider fan base is calling for the return of ... Hue Jackson? Wow, folks, set your sights a bit higher. Chiefs 23, Raiders 16.
