The Football Gods giveth, and the Football Gods taketh away -- like a bunch of spoiled, overgrown babies.
So, yes: I had my best week of picking winners, but I also took a drubbing on my ATS picks.
As for my "Best Bets," well, they just didn't happen, thanks to my participation in the ConvergeSouth tech/media/user conference in Greensboro, NC. I was kinda busy.
But let's put this in perspective: I had a good week because NFL favorites finally had a good week. Favorites went 10-4. with only the Steelers (road), Ravens (road), Raiders (home) and Eagles (home) choking on their opportunities.
And I expected to do well: I ranked seven games as Confident, the highest number I've ranked that securely all season. Six of those games came through for me. Meanwhile, my guesses finally nudged over the .500 mark, thanks to a 4-0 turn in the Just Guessing category.
This week I'm not so confident: Only four games get my Confident label, while seven fall under that Just Guessing header.
