Can this get any simpler? Based on the way Bleacher Report’s expert NFL analysts are currently faring against the spread this season, it certainly can not get much tougher.
Picking at every game, Gary Davenport, Brad Gagnon and Brent Sobleski had yet another run in Week 12, dropping their album that is joint . Individually and as a crew, here is the damage through 12 months (last week’s records in parentheses):
1. Gary Davenport: 92-78-6 (7-8)
2. Brent Sobleski: 81-89-6 (7-8)
3. Brad Gagnon: 78-92-6 (5-10)
Consensus choices: 83-87-6 (7-8)
With December loomingwe asked longtime sports betting advisor Dave Tuley if there might be some light at the end of the tube to the betting public or when the sportsbooks will continue to benefit from bigger samples in the summer season.
We were given a hope, but not enough to get by tuley.
“There was a time less than a dozen years back where I had a bunch of years in a row where I just killed it the second half of this year and in December,” he explained. “At that time, I felt like it was only the time of year once the great teams were being overrated and the terrible teams were being underrated, and with parity exactly what it had been, the underdogs were performing a lot better at the time.”
However, Tuley notes that neither the books nor the bettors have encountered advantages lately Decembers. “As much as bettors wish to believe that we’re becoming smarter the more people see these teams play,” he said,”clearly the oddsmakers are seeing the same things we are, and they are adjusting and which makes it hard also.”
However, he believes it’s likely to pick out lines which have been exaggerated by midseason slumps. In particular, he pointed at the 7.5-point spread in favor of this New Orleans Saints at a road matchup with the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.
With that line, oddsmakers are indicating the Saints will be preferred by as many as 13 or 14 points if this game were in New Orleans, which does appear high considering that the Cowboys are riding a three-game winning streak.
“That is [a reflection of] the way the Saints have been enjoying,” Tuley said. “For the novels to balance their action, they must put it in the number.”
It is something to remember as we enter the last month of this 2018 regular season. It may not save your entire year as a bettor, but if you’ve been after us any guidance helps.
Here is what Sobleski, Gagnon and Davenport are considering heading to the first 16-game slate in two or more months.
