1 UNIT ON PITTSBURGH -7.5 AT $1.91 (CENTREBET)
Bad news for anyone like me who used an early round fantasy football draft pick on Doug Martin. Firstly, he has scored as many points thus far as I have. And secondly, this Bucs side is putrid – tough to run the ball when you’re four touchdowns behind.
1 UNIT ON CHICAGO +1.5 AT $1.95 (SPORTINGBET)
On form alone, this line is completely out of whack – essentially, you’re paying a 5-7 point tax to back Aaron Rodgers. I’m too much of a tight arse to pay such a tax.
1 UNIT ON PHILADELPHIA +5.5 AT $1.94 (SPORTSBET)
Another line that appears to have been set based on 2013 form, not 2014 form. And another game were an early round running back fantasy pick (Frank Gore) will almost inevitably make me wince for three and a half straight hours.
