Week 2

 

Baltimore Ravens -0.5 L

 

Atlanta Falcons -5.5

 

Los Angeles Chargers -7.5

 

Minnesota Vikings 0.5

 

New Orleans Saints -8.5

 

New York Jets -2.5

 

Houston Texans -3

 

Kansas City Chiefs +5.5

 

Philadelphia Eagles -3

 

Indianapolis Colts +6

 

Arizona Cardinals +13.5

 

Detroit Lions +6

 

Denver Broncos -5.5

 

New England Patriots -1

 

New York Giants +3

 

Seattle Seahawks 3.5

 

Just some side notes - I like the KC pick - good value there.  Thinkin' parlay KC and UNDER.  Other picks the method made that I like are MIN & NYJ

As always - these are just leans the method produced.  I don't bet every game and a lot of times I will make various bets based on Value - ie. Sides, Parlays, Teasers.  For example -I like a 6pt 3 team tease - MIN, NYJ, KC

Best of luck this weekend

I don't want to say the exact site since I scrape their site for their data and just in case - you know - but its one of the top 4 fantasy football sites

ESPN, YAHOO, CBS SPORTS, NFL

Ok so put the spreadsheet on g-drive.  Here is the link - I usually put preliminary leans on Tuesday as that's when the week's projections are available on the site I use.  I will then update again on Thursday for the Thursday night game and Saturday before the Sunday games.

Picks for this weekend until I figure out the best way to share the picks via spreadsheet and g-drive

Hey fellow system/handicapping enthusiasts,

So its tough to post and track every week but i'll try to figure out a way to post my spreadsheet with my picks.  Maybe make it available on G-Drive and provide a link for folks to check it and maybe whoever is using it ca help post the plays from the spreadsheet.

I'll see what I can do.  Either way Thursday's pick is.....

ATL+3.5 - you can go down to ATL+1.5 and ATL is still the play.

So that's all folks - I hope this thread inspires some creative handicapping methods using fantasy football predictive scores to help handicap NFL games.

It's far from perfect - I would love to see some folks track the predictive scores / stats and come up with a better way to translate how many fantasy points equates to real live points.
