The past several days have shown us that no one is immune to the Covid-19 virus, no matter how powerful you may be. Whether in the White House or the NFL, the virus does not discriminate. Since the beginning of the madness, the NFL has, unlike any other sport/league, plowed ahead with blinders on. Not once did it publicly discuss postponing the season. And sure enough, the Chiefs and Texans kicked off as scheduled on September 10. Below is my sports betting picks recap for the week of 10/07/20.
The recent outbreaks with the Titans and Patriots caused facilities to shut down and games to be postponed. The NFL is now scrambling to make adjustments with future scheduling, while some players are wondering if they should be even playing at all. The games will go on, but teams will have to adjust, as will bettors when wagering on teams with a short week. Health becomes even more important for those players nursing injuries and trying to heal before the next game. I generally like to take more experienced teams with more experienced coaches who are used to adapting on a short week.
Overall, the NFL has done a great job of providing fans with a good product. Even with limited practice and no preseason, points per game are higher than they have been since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Road QBs not having to worry about crowd noise when they audible etc. definitely has been a factor as road teams have been scoring at record clips.
On the shoulders of a 10-0 run for our NFL props, we broke even for units this week, going 16-12 overall. For those of you without full prop betting access, all I can say is that I am as upset as you are with the NCAAF performance. Last week was a terrible 2-7 (-9.8 units), a run we are not accustomed to, to say the least. We will do better and things will turn around. NFL went 12-3 on the strength of the props (+9.1 units). MLB was 1-2 (-1.2 units) and our PGA underdog won (+1.9 units). A revised Fall Money Management Guide was sent out a week ago to Standard/Premium members, so make sure you adjust.
We are dedicated to getting college football turned around. It’s a weird year, so hopefully the return of a full slate of conferences will get things back to normal. Part of the KrackWins difference is that we win long-term across multiple sports, so my/your bankroll has diversification and less risk when a nasty streak of variance happens in one area. Thank you for your trust in us.
