There have been a lot of surprising developments this season, including how bad the field has done overall to date, but it remains one of the best talking points in the industry and something that we are very fortunate to be a part of once again this season.
This week, we’ll look at the game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Vikings are favored by three points and the total on the game is 40.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already looking at Week 7 in the NFL, but time flies when you’re having fun. Many of the Westgate SuperContest entrants have not been having fun, but things were looking up for us here at BangTheBook last week.
The Week 5 success rate of 53.95 percent had been the highest to date during the 2016 season, but Week 6 actually eclipsed that mark in a big way. The 55.01 percent rate of winners in Week 6 set a new benchmark for the field.
This week we’ll look at a decent matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs are now favored by 1 and the total on the game is 46.5.
The 17-week grind of the Westgate SuperContest is entering its sixth week of frustration, elation, and trepidation. That means that only 25 of the 85 picks are in the books, so just about anything can happen.
In our never-ending quest for knowledge and ways to boost our bankrolls, we sometimes come across some information that opens our eyes. That happened this past week when BangTheBook Radio listener Ben Diaz reached out with some pretty eye-opening information.
One entry here at BangTheBook.com had a fine week and the other had the worst week possible. It was a good week for the field overall, but that didn’t extend to the BangTheBook Podcast entry and the frustrations are mounting.
We’ve always known that the NFL betting market is a tough nut to crack, but the 2016 Westgate SuperContest is almost unbelievable. Through four weeks of the season, the field is at 44.79 percent.
For this week’s game, we’ll look at the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots at the Cleveland Browns. The Patriots are favored by 10 and the total is 46.5.
The Westgate SuperContest struggles continued in Week 4. It is actually incredible how poorly the field is doing at this stage of the game, but it also speaks to just how difficult betting the NFL is on a week-to-week basis.
After starting out with a combined 14-6 record over the first two weeks of the season, we combined for a 3-7 record in Week 3. We’re in search of a bounce back week and here are the teams that we have selected in order to achieve that goal.
