The 2021 NFL season is moving along as teams like the Steelers are experiencing their bye week. Six weeks into the season, only one team remains undefeated while one other enters 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 who will be picking every game against the spread and the over/under point totals is now down to a “Spectacular 7” as Geoffrey Benedict failed to make his Week 7 picks in time and is now eliminated for the season. 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, mediocrity ruled the day as Mark led the way picking against the spread by going 8-6 for the week. A group of four finished a game behind at 7-7. Michael now leads the way for the season at 49-44 one game ahead of Bryan and are the only ones over .500 at this point. Geoffrey brought up the rear in his last week picking games going 4-10 and was 37-56 overall.
In the over/under, four people tied for the top spot this week at 9-5. The winning cluster consisted of Bryan, Mark, Matty, and Geoffrey. For the second-straight week, I really tanked in the over/under at 4-10 this week. The overall lead belongs to Bryan at 50-44 as he is up by two games over the pair of Aussies.
