The 2021 NFL season is moving along as teams now entering what would be the quarter mark before the regular season expanded. Only three weeks into the season, only five teams remain undefeated while another five entered the week looking for their first victory. With it seeming like almost any team could find victory or defeat each week, it makes picking games even more difficult.
For the 2021 NFL season, our “Excellent 8” of BTSC staff will be picking every game against the spread and the over/under point totals. We are keeping up with the changes we made last year and including the Thursday games. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers, and if you need to be reminded of this simple look at our records. We are just a group of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.
We are using the same program as last year called Tallysight It allows us to show picks in a much more “friendly to the eye” manner. To understand how it works, the default tab is for our picks against the spread. To see the over/under picks, click the “O/U” tab in the upper left. Also, make sure you scroll on the graphic to see all the picks.
Last week, Shannon put a hurting on all of us by going 11-5 and pulled himself up from the bottom with his big turnaround. There were four people who went 9-7 and two more going 7-9 while I brought up the rear at 5-11. For the year, it’s Shannon, Bryan, and Michael all tied in leading the way against the spread at 24-23 and are the only ones over .500 at this point.
In the over/under, Bryan crushed it at 12-4 followed closely by Geoffrey at 11-5. While Shannon took it to us against the spread, he brought up the rear in over/under at 6-10 this week. It is once again Bryan leading the way overall, this time all by himself, at 26-22 with two others lurking one game back.
So here are the picks for the games for Week 4 of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
