Last week's against the spread record: 6-6
Overall against the spread record: 53-33 (62 percent)
Well, I went bold last week and it didn't really pay off.
Technically, I didn't lose the week, but since my goal is to finish at 70 percent by the end of the season, a 6-6 week definitely doesn't help.
Luckily, I'm optimistic about this week, and it's not just for the turkey.
There are some great games this week in the NFL, and I'm taking seven against the spread.
