woah.

If Chicago beat The Lions I will ride around Coventry naked on a white horse!

Again I wouldn't bet against the Packers particularly at home when there is a polar vortex in town! Not saying Patriots are not a better team either!

My only concern now is that you have backed Seattle, ordinarily I would too but now I have to think about itWink!

I hope I haven't been a bit premature re Bears. It is cold and wet!
Report bigpoppapump November 28, 2014 9:30 AM GMT
Good start by the bears (my finger hovered over 1.8 at one point but fought the urge) but easily handled by the Lions.  Stafford back to form against the sorry Bears D.
Loss of 0.35

Didn't stay up for the Seahawks but nice to get on the board.  Win 1.1

Balance +0.75

for the best team in the NFL at the moment 2.6 (which is where the Pats started earlier this week) is a remarkable price.  It's the best value IMO since they were even longer priced to go to Indianapolis and win a couple of weeks ago).

What's the thinking behind laying Pittsburgh. The Saints can't defend or play away from home.
Report bigpoppapump November 30, 2014 4:32 PM GMT
Had Pitts as 1.8 shots - so happy enough to lay 1.5x. 
Steelers too inconsistent to be that short against a fellow mid-rank side - they've just scraped past the Titans and lost to the Jets in their last 2.  Not exactly top notch form.
Agree the home field advantage may make a difference which is why I had 'em as odds on.

I agree that the 8-5 for the Patriots earlier in the week was the value.... the 5-4 they are now is closer to what i would have them.

Going to have a drink and watch the Packers, will have to tape Homeland. Got my Thanksgiving doggie bag ready to be warmed up. Americans in London do put on a good spread! The only problem is that most don't watch football ( speaking in the American vernacular! ). Got plenty of football ( back to English ) bets running till 9pm so today should be a feast.

Patriots are probably a better all round side but I am hoping the Polar Vortex will count for something and at least the crowd will not put off the Packers Offence ( I don't normally apply words like offence to sport buy I guess I have bought into the programme ).

Cannot believe GB never went odds against!  Go figure. It could have gone either way. Pack could have won the game in the first half. Feel sorry for anybody on Pats as there wasn't much opportunity to play the odds but they should have taken a small hit imho after seeing rogers set off like an exocet.

Going to watch Homeland now. Supposed to be one of the best episodes ever.
Report Swagger December 1, 2014 12:30 AM GMT
Falcons (home), Bills (away), Bucks (away), Lions (home) - you never know on any given Sunday and all that but barring Rogers breaking his collarbone or serious injuries to the offensive line, I can only see them winning out. Even if they lost one, chances are with 12 wins they would still get the top seed. I can't see Arizona winning two more games let alone three.

I do think the Seahawks will put the Eagles back in their box next week, it will be men against boys - the Cowboys were just horrible all over the pitch on Thanksgiving starting with the play calling. But the Seahawks have a harder schedule than the Pack. I still think the NFC East will come down to the Cowboys game at Phili as well, just my opinion.

Hope you all well Judge.

Looking back Packers left a lot of points on the field .....the Pats not so.

The Packers O line which has been iffy has really come together the last 5 or 6 weeks.

Would like to see the Packers play Seattle at Lambeau in Championship game.
Report Swagger December 1, 2014 12:37 AM GMT
I still think the Saints are the potential jokers in the pack in the NFC but obviously they have blown their chances of a high seed. At some point, the defence might get back on the same wavelength like last season and the 5 touchdowns today might just get their juices flowing. They also have a relatively easy schedule and I could see them winning out going into the playoffs as the momentum side. I think New England will reach the Superbowl, I have no doubts about that in my mind. I just think this Denver side bottle it when the going gets tough - they almost did it against Indy earler in the season they were there for the taking but Indy lacked the belief. I don't think Indy don't have the defence and from what I have seen they have got schooled by Brady in recent years - I can only see the Pats at the Superbowl myself.

Balance from Thurs was +0.75

New England at GB - lay GB: 2 points to win 3 points  LOSE 2
Cinc at Tampa Bay - lay Cinc: 0.55 to win 1 point LOSE 0.55
Cinc at TB - Back under 44.5 points 1point to 1 point WIN 1
Tenn at Houston - lay Houston 0.34 to win 1 point LOSE 0.34
NO at Pitts - lay Pitt 0.54 to win 1 point WIN 1

So the balance for week 13 is -0.15

shame TB failed v Cinc with 12 men on the field when in field goal range.  New England also a bit frustrating - slow start to trail 13-0 with a lot of penalties the first Q.

Tonight:
Lay Miami 1 point to win 2.6 points.
Back over 41.5 points 0.5 point to win 0.5 point

I'd be extremely grateful if you will advise laying the Pack again for week 14.
