The 2021 NFL season is moving along as teams are heading into the last week of the first half of the season. Eight weeks into the season, there and no remaining undefeated teams while one team goes into their by still 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, Michael and Mark led the way picking against the spread at 10-5 and moved into the top two spots for the season. Michael still leads the way for the season at 67-54 three games ahead of Mark. At this time, Jeff and Matty are the only ones under .500 on the season as Matty fell even farther behind by going 5-10 this week.
In the over/under, there was a three-way tie for the top spot this week at 10-5 between myself, Michael and Jeff. The overall lead still belongs to Bryan at 65-57 but Jeff is closing in at 62-60 as he now joins Bryan in the over .500 club.
