The 2021 NFL season is moving along as teams are having their first bye weeks of the year. Five weeks into the season, only one team remain undefeated while two enter 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, I completely destroyed in the picks against the spread going 13-3 for the week and putting me back in the middle of the pack for the season. Jeff also have a great week going 11-5, and everybody picked at least seven games correct. Bryan leads the way for the season at 43-36 one game ahead of Michael and are the only ones over .500 at this point. Matty has had quite the fall from grace as he and Geoffrey are tied for last at 33-46.
In the over/under, it was Bryan who was in the top spot this week at 10-6 one game ahead of Jeff and Mark. After crushing it against the spread, I really tanked in the over/under at 4-12 this week. For this reason, I lost my overall lead to Bryan and Jeff at 41-39 and are the only ones over .500 on the season.
So here are the picks for the games for Week 6 of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
