Madness! Underdogs go 11-2 for the day! Not just short point underdogs, I mean the Broncos were 13 points at one point, the Falcons similar, the Chiefs 5 pts, the Ravens 6.5pts!! The 49ers cover 10pts and we’re within a whisker of an upset and the Jets weren’t a million miles away either.

I think one of us on the Experts blog has picked 7 winners and can go .500 or better, I think I can get to .500 tonight if the Titans win otherwise it’s been a week that’s just...beyond words.

A fair few defenders scored in yesterday’s games and tonight we have two teams priced at 5/1 (Titans) and Colts (13/2) for anytime TD scorers for the defense. The 13/2 especially is a massive price for a D with Paddy Power.

Not sure if any regular Sky Sports viewers have heard but former NFL frontman Kevin Cadle has passed away. Very sad news. Was in his early 60’s.

A bad week punting wise. I really don’t want to see my record on the experts blog, was 0-5 on my personal spread bets and as a fan Rodgers is out for the season.
But today’s sad news puts it all into perspective. It seems weird to say I’ll miss someone I don’t even know but Kevin Cadle was a influence in my life, growing my interest and knowledge in the sport. RIP

Crazy week - RIP Kevin Cadle. Loved watching SkySports coverage in the UK. He was the guy on Sky. Top man.

Monday Night Football and at last we have betting on the Colts! The Underdog Blog has been updated because the 14/5 is better than I thought it would be! Whether it's because bookies think he won't play or not, but I had the Colts around 7/4 chances. 14/5 for a team with the incredible record the Colts have against the Titans? I'm on!

I’m surprised on the price for the Colts I don’t see that much between two inconsistent teams. I guess it comes from them being on the road and the fact they’ve only beaten two teams that are still currently winless.

One of those where the value looks to be the bigger priced team but I can’t find great reasons to support them. I’ve backed their D to score at 13/2 though.

No actual bets for me in this one (or any time), but everything I do is on OLBG tips. That said, I can and do play on Draft Kings each week and after a day which set me up really nicely yesterday (thanks to Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Brown, Evan Engram, Cameron Brate, and Leonard Fournette) then even just 10pts from TY Hilton tonight will make this a weekend of very nice return :hope:

Of course with the way I've been betting recently I went with the Titans D/st... Mainly as I thought Adoree Jackson had more chance than anyone else. Arse.

I believe I finished with over 0.500 though ;)

You did Sir and considering how this week has gone anyone (and I mean anyone, blogger, punter, media talking head) going over .500 on this craziest of weeks has done a sterling job so I doff my cap to you TT.
