SUPER BOWL SWEEP …. SWEET!

The Animal absolutely CRUSHED the side, total and propositions in Super Bowl 52 yesterday.  The 5* major on the OVER 48.5 was sweet, but I really enjoyed that Missed Extra Point prop that paid +260. Nothing like being up >+2.5 units in the first quarter 🙂 That brings the 2017-18 NFL & College Football season to a successful close.  I hope everyone had a fun & profitable season. Thank you all again for your...

“Shorestein Says” 2018 Super Bowl Breakdown

The Super Bowl Spread Calculation:   My case for the Eagles: The Eagles have the traditional pieces that have historically given the Patriots problems in some of their key losses.  The ’07 and ’11 Giants, the ’13 Ravens and the ’15 Broncos are some of the defenses that made the Patriots offense look ordinary.  The commonality between these special defenses is the ability to generate pressure up...

“Shorestein Says” 2018 NFL Conference ...

Vikings -3 @ Eagles Take the Eagles calculation with a grain of salt, as their data is still heavily skewed by Carson Wentz’ elite play.  Since Foles has taken over they have not been able to pass with the same level of efficiency.  I would probably lean Minnesota despite the Eagles’ Money Zone calculation.  The Vikings finished the regular season ranked #1 in passer rating differential and I think they have...

NFL PERFECTION!

The Animal goes 3-0 today in the NFL Playoffs. How about a repeat tomorrow?     Saturday Premium NFL Plays:  3* Philadelphia +3 4* New England -13 3* New England ‘OVER’ 48   It’s hard to ignore the following:  The Eagles were plus 96 yards per game with Wentz as their starter but are minus 101 yards per games with Foles in three outings.  One website this week that evaluates strength of schedule has Atlanta playing...

“Shorestein Says” NFL Picks – Week 17

Since Week 17 is generally such a crapshoot, I recommend scaling back your bets or just avoiding altogether.  The calculations are difficult to read this week because the spreads have accounted for teams that have nothing to play for or are resting meaningful starters.  Again, I think it would be wise to save that bankroll you built up from the last few months to make smarter bets once the playoffs start. Spreadsheet...

“Shorestein Says” NFL Picks – Week 16

Jacksonville +4.5 @ San Francisco: Remember back in week 5, I compared the Jacksonville defense to that all-time great 2013 Seahawks defense?  Looks like I wasn’t crazy after all… We are now 14 weeks in and look at how they compare now: To make matters better, they are finally getting efficient and may I even say explosiveness from their Bortles-led offense.  The Jaguars now rank #1 in the NFL in passer rating differential...

Razor NFL Thursday 12/14/2017

Broncos/Colts Last week the colts played in tough conditions in snow in Buffalo. Frank Gore had 36 rushing attempts in the overtime loss to the bills. On a short week after playing in several inches of snow, I don’t see how the colts will have enough fire power to play a tough defense that may have found some life. Denver only allowed 100 yards to the jets last week and should get back Domata Peko for tonight. I love...

“Shorestein Says” NFL Picks – Week 15

Chargers @ Kansas City +1:  I see great value in taking the Chiefs as a home underdog against an opponent within the AFC West.  In case you aren’t aware, the Chiefs have absolutely steamrolled the AFC West for the past 2+ seasons going 11-5 ATS.  Also consider that KC will be playing as a home underdog, which hasn’t happened since 2014.  They were home dogs twice in 2014 and were 2-0.  You probably recall their Monday...

“Shorestein Says” NFL Picks – Week 14

Baltimore +5.5 @ Pittsburgh: I like the Ravens as FG+ underdogs this week.  The Steelers will be without several key players in Shazier and Ju Ju Smith Shuster.  The number that stands out to me this week has been the Ravens performance within the AFC North.  Since 2016, the Ravens are 7-2 ATS within their division, and I really like their ability to bounce back from their early season loss to the Steelers.  Big Ben has been...
