The 2021 NFL season is now in the final week of December and teams are entering their final three games to make a move, or fall out of contention. Upsets appear to be the theme each week. With it seeming like almost any team could find victory or defeat every time they take the field, 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 there was once again average success when it came to picking against the spread. Bryan led the way going 10-6 as Jeff and I were one game back at 9-7. Mark continues to hold his overall lead in picking against the spread by seven games over Michael with a record of 121-101.
In the over/under, the scores were below average with the exception of Jeff who led the way at 11-5 with nobody else reaching .500 for the week. This allowed Jeff to open up an even bigger lead in the overall over/under for the season by 11 games ahead of me as he is now 131-93.
