Betting the NFL (Wildcard Weekend)

Some of you may know that I was a heavy sports-bettor during the time I played Black Jack. I handicapped NFL games for about three years. Unfortunately to do it correctly you have to devot a lot of time for this and I wasn't able to do that anymore. But I still love the NFL and follow the games as good as I can. But with the start of the post-season I usually try to place at least some bets.

For this weeks wildcard weekend I had a bet on each of the games and I'm running good so far.

Although Seattle allowed Washington a huge comback the (480) Seattle Seahawks -3 (-125) wasn't in big danger anytime. [SEA 35 - WAS 14]

On the other hand (482) Pittsburgh Steelers +3 (-120) looked like a steal before the game but Jacksonville was surprisingly good and it was a very ecxiting game and a win (for me, unfortunately not for Pittsburgh) as close as it could be. [JAC 31 - PIT 29]

For tomorrow I have two more picks:
(487) Tennessee Titans +10 (-105) vs. San Diego Chargers
(486) Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3 (+105) vs. New York Giants
Disclaimer: There's no guarantee that these will win too!

Picks are based on numbers and not on the team I like or dislike. But for me there is one exception: I never ever bet against Tampa Bay. In that case I prefer not to bet the game at all. I'm definately a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, especially the head-coach Jon Gruden and the defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin have my greatest respect. And I am more than happy that one of my favorite Quarterbacks (Jeff Garcia) found a new home in Tampa Bay.
