The 2021 NFL season is moving along as teams like the Steelers are coming out of their bye week and hitting the road for their next AFC North matchup. Seven 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 “Spectacular 7” of BTSC staff who 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, everybody finished above .500 picking against the spread. Both Shannon and I led the way at 9-4 and brought each of us up to 53-53 on the year. Michael still leads the way for the season at 57-49 two games ahead of Bryan. At this time, Matty is the only one under .500 on the season coming in at 47-59.
In the over/under, I was in the top spot this week at 8-5 along with Michael as we were the only two who had a winning record this week. This week, it was Mark who really tanked in the over/under at 3-10. The overall lead still belongs to Bryan at 56-51 and is the only person over .500 on the season.
