Last week's record against the spread: 4-5
Overall record against the spread: 60-42 (59 percent)
I'm not going to sugar coat it folks, I have botched the last few weeks. I started off strong at one point, being at 67 percent.
Then I got carried away with picking some of the same teams to cover every week, which became a bad idea.
Still, I am sitting at a respectable 59 percent in my picks against the spread, and there are some great games this week for the NFL fans to be excited about.
I'm taking eight games against the spread this week, but I can tell you right now that Chicago to cover or beat New England is definitely not one of them.
Here are the spreads for each game this week.
Indianapolis at Tennessee: Indianapolis -3
Oakland at Jacksonville: Jacksonville -4
Cincinnati at Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh -8.5
New England at Chicago: New England -3
Cleveland at Buffalo: Buffalo -1
NY Giants at Minnesota: NY Giants -2.5
Green Bay at Detroit: Green Bay -6.5
Atlanta at Carolina: Atlanta -7
Tampa Bay at Washington: Tampa Bay -2
St. Louis at New Orleans: New Orleans -9
Seattle at San Francisco: San Francisco -5.5
Miami at NY Jets: NY Jets -5.5
Denver at Arizona: Denver -5.5
Kansas City at San Diego: San Diego -7
Philadelphia at Dallas: Philadelphia -3.5
