We went 1-1 this week, getting last Monday night’s Bills side teased with the Vikings, who covered the teaser by half of a point. While the Dallas Cowboys had their chance, our pick of the week did not come through and got negative closing line value. That brings us to 36-33-1 on the year, with roughly 0.4 points of closing line value per pick.

This week, there are six games for the first time in NFL history — and with it plenty of chances to place some bets. We’ve found some value, so enjoy!

Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills (-0.5) AND Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1.5) at Washington Football Team

With both of these, you’re teasing through the key number of three. And with the Tampa Bay game, you get the added benefit of teasing through seven, as well.
