The 2021 NFL season is now in the final two weeks and teams are entering January with the goal of making a move if not already in playoff position. 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, Bryan stood out above the rest of us when picking against the spread as he led the way going 11-5. Everyone else was bunched together with three people going 9-7, two going 8-8, and one going 7-9. Mark continues to hold his overall lead in picking against the spread by only four games over Bryan with a record of 129-109.

In the over/under, Matty and I were the only ones who finished about .500 coming in at 9-7. Jeff still has a very big lead in the overall over/under for the season by 9 games ahead of me as he is now 138-102.
