Micro.Blog Photo Challenge Day 8: Twilight
Micro.Blog Photo Challenge Day 7: Spice
I went 10 and 6 last week but only made .33 because of upping my bets on the wrong games. This week I took my own advice and slightly upped my unit to two full dollars and didn’t vary too much. Except when I did…
Week Result: 8-7-1
Overall Results: 49-30-1
Rams @ Seahawks
Definitely an interesting game I am interested in watching and I could see it going either way. I am going to say the Rams get their offense going against the Seahawks D and cover.
Rams -2.5 ✅
Jets @ Falcons
When both teams are trash, take the underdog to cover.
Jets +3.5 ❌
Eagles @ Panthers
Panthers are doing quite well led by Darnold. Not sure if CMC will be back but I don’t think it matters. Their D can take care of the Hurts led Eagles.
Panthers -3.5 ❌
Packers @ Bengals
Packers are visiting the Bengals and are only 3 point favorites. Bengals are better than people think but I think the Packers can easily cover.
Packers -3 PUSH
Patriots @ Texans
Patriots are a 8.5 point favorite against the Texans. While I don’t think either team is good, the Texans are a special sort of bad. Their homefield advantage doesn’t feel worth 3 points.
Patriots -8.5 x.5 ❌
Titans @ Jags
Titans are a 4 point underdog to the Jags who we saw do decent on Thursday night in the first quarter before collapsing. Do the Jags have a coach? lol. I’ll take the Titans to get right against the Jags after embarrassing themselves against the Jets.
Titans -4 ✅
Broncos @ Steelers
I hated this one. Broncos are likely lead by Lazer Locked Into His First Read and Steelers the corpse of Big Ben. Steelers figure it out at home. Gross.
Steelers -1 ✅
Saints @ WFT
The Saints feel like a lost team. I heard a crazy stat that QBs vs the WFT are doing really well in fantasy. Folks thought the WFT defense would be better. I expect the Heinicke to McLaurin connection to click at home and cover.
WFT +2 ❌
Lions @ Vikings
Lions are a 9 point underdog against the Vikings. Wow! I think they are scrappy enough to cover.
Lions +9 ✅
Dolphins @ Bucs
I think the Bucs have something to prove at home after not covering in the Brady Bowl. Dolphins aren’t as good as I thought they’d be on both sides of the ball.
Bucs -10 ✅
Browns @ Chargers
Reports came out that Baker has been playing hurt. Chargers are hot and at home. Easy.
Chargers -1.5 ✅
49ers @ Cardinals
Lots of uncertainty around this game. 49ers are possibly starting Lance. Cardinals are the lone undefeated team, can they keep it up? Yes. Spread made me a bit anxious but nevertheless
Cardinals -5.5 x1.5 ✅
Bears @ Raiders
Raiders are at home and will get Fields. I expect their D to throw him for a loop.
Raiders -5 ❌
Giants @ Cowboys
Cowboys sneaky good D and rolling offense take care of the not very good Giants.
Cowboys -7 ✅
Bills @ Chiefs
Mannn tough one! A possible postseason preview. I’ll take the Chiefs to cover since they have more on the line and are at home.
Chiefs -2.5 ❌
Colts @ Ravens
Ravens on Monday Night Football with yours truly contributing to the 12th man. Lock it in.
Ravens -6.5 x2.5 ❌
Reminded that Release Notes was 2 years ago. What an excellent time. Still benefiting from the relationships and learnings gained there. Thank you @joec and @dazeend

Micro.Blog Photo Challenge Day 5: Toy
Apple didn’t disappoint on this anniversary of Steve’s death a decade ago. Front page commemoration on their homepage with a video and statement from the Jobs family.
Last week was a bit rough for me and ready for a bounce back.
Week Result: 10-6, +.33 bucks (need to stop weighing the wrong bets and just raise min bid everywhere)
Overall Results: 41-23, -2.82 bucks
Jaguars @ Bengals
I accidentally locked in the Bengals at -6 last week before they beat the Steelers. Still felt good about it but with them down 14 as I write this… not so great now!
Bengals -6 ❌
Titans @ Jets
Titans are a 6.5 point favorite over the Jets who have been struggling. I know the Titans lack AJ Brown and potentially Julio Jones, but I think they can get it done against an underwhelming Jets team.
Titans -6.5 x3 ❌
Lions @ Bears
Bears are a 3 point favorite against the scrappy Lions. The Lions are probably due, and I am probably lighting money on fire thinking Nagy can redeem himself after last week.
Bears -3 ✅
WFT @ Falcons
WFT are a 1 point favorite on the road against the Falcons. Neither of these feel great. Both teams are a bit lost so far.
WFT -1 ✅
Colts @ Dolphins
The Jacoby Brissett revenge game! Dolphins a 2 point favorite at home and I think they are the better team, so I’ll go with them.
Dolphins -2 ❌
Browns @ Vikings
Browns are only a 2 point favorite and I think they are the much better team. I’ll buy that. and double up the bet.
Browns -2 x2 ✅
Panthers @ Cowboys
Really interesting matchup with the undefeated Panthers facing the underrated by Vegas (in my opinion) Cowboys. Cowboys a 4 point favorite and I am taking them here. Lets see what Darnold and the Panthers D are made of!
Cowboys -4 x2 ✅
Chiefs @ Eagles
Chiefs must be stunned to be 1-2 in September. Eagles are about to get beat up by an angry squad.
Chiefs -7 ✅
Giants @ Saints
Giants are a 7 point underdog and I think they can cover that on the road.
Giants +7 ✅
Texans @ Bills
Bills are a stunning 17 point favorite at home against the Texans. I usually stray away from these game but I recall when I thought the Ravens couldn’t do that to the Jets in 2019 and missed out on some EZ money.
Bills -17 ✅
Seahawks @ 49ers
Really hard game to pick . 49ers are a 2.5 point favorite and I think they are disciplined enough to win the game and win it by at least FG.
49ers -2.5 ❌
Cardinals @ Rams
I bet this game goes back and forth and is close so I will take the 4.5 points and the Cardinals in what might be a shootout.
Cardinals +4.5 ✅
Ravens @ Broncos
Ravens are a point underdog at Mile High. Lets see if the Ravens can give the Broncos their first L.
Ravens +1 (should have done ML, oh well) x5 ✅
Steelers @ Packers
Packers are a 6.5 point favorite against the Steelers who are led by a hella washed Big Ben. I’ll take the other old man QB.
Packers -6.5 ✅
Bucs @ Patriots
Oh yes, the Brady revenge game. Boy is gonna rip his old team a new one in his old stadium. I forgot to multiply my bet on this “lock” but asked a buddy to help me out and I think it’ll be a 6x bet.
Bucs -6.5 x6 ❌
Raiders @ Chargers
Raiders are facing a Chargers team that just beat the Chiefs. We know how draining beating them can be so I can see the Chargers having a bit of a hangover and the sneaky good Raiders covering.
Raiders +3.5 ❌
