The 2021 NFL season is moving along as teams move into what would be the second quarter before the regular season expanded. Four 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, there were two people who lead the way picking against the spread at 9-7. It was Bryan and Michael with the top weekly score which kept them tied for the season at 33-30 and are the only ones over .500 at this point. As for who came in at the bottom, it was Matty who finished at 5-11 for the week, but still stays ahead of me overall as I’m only 24-39.
In the over/under, Shannon crushed it at 11-5 followed closely by both Jeff and me at 10-6. This time it was Geoffrey who brought up the rear in over/under at 4-12 this week. Although I am last against the spread, I hold an overall lead of two games over Bryan and I’m the only person over .500 at 34-30.
So here are the picks for the games for Week 5 of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
