Week 6 NFL Betting Results

Looking at its record picking NFL winners in Week 6, maybe we dusted off the OddsShark.com scores prediction super-computer a week too early in 2012.

The machine dive-bombed to a 2-12 ATS mark in a week when underdogs covered the spread in 12 of 14 games. The dogs were led by Green Bay, Detroit, Buffalo, Denver and the New York Giants, who all won outright as road underdogs.

Mike Pickett, making his selections along with the Scores Prediction Computer, was 7-7 ATS and predicted underdog winners in Tennessee, Dallas, St. Louis and Green Bay. Like most cappers, he feels it was really an 8-6 ATS, after picking the Chargers who pulled an epic collapse in the Monday Nighter to Peyton Manning.

On the plus side, Pickett’s three strongest plays of the week all hit. Tampa Bay, Green Bay and the New York Jets all won and covered. So there’s the positive spin – 3-0 in ‘best bets’ of the week.

The computer picks did much better picking totals, going 8-6 on the week.

So we will preach to the masses when we kill it, but confess our sins when we fail. And Week 6 was a failure for many bettors and another clean-up week for the sportsbooks. [ See latest Week 7 lines and check out the best online sportsbook reviews for news and information ]
