2013 NFL Bet Box: Week 8 

Image description

The good news is that this gambling season from Hell is almost halfway over. The bad news is that things aren’t looking much better for the rest of 2013. Take a look at the Week 8 NotBS Bet Box.



Before we get started, a couple uncommon definitions:


Pick 5: Pool designed to pick 5 winners against the spread. Must win all 5 selections to share in the pot; A push ties. Generally, spreads are 1 3 7 10 14 and 17


2/3 Team Teaser: Teasing is when you are given points for multiple picks (either a team ats or an o/u) for little less odds than a parlay. A 2 team teaser gets 6 points while a 3 team teaser gets 10.


Parlay: Multiple bets correct for maximum profit


Prop: Achievements by teams or individual players


“Hinge team:” There may be a technical term so if you come across it please fill me in. It’s basically the team that you think is the lock to do what you want them to do. So you use that team in multiple parlays and teasers because you are counting on them. Basically if that team doesn’t do what you want, you end up having a shitty day. Feels like Chicago is my hinge team this week. I may have been completely wrong about them. I had them pegged for a 4-12 season and now I think they will win the NFC North. But seriously, I hate the Bears.


Results from the Past:

Going into Week 7: -1536.5 Sonic Rings

Total Risk Week 7: 310 Sonic Rings

Atlanta +3 over Arizona

Washington +13 over Denver

*Note* I’ve all but given up on the pick 5. Usually whatever the first 1PM Eastern game to end is the one that knocks me out. This week I had my fiancé make my picks.

Doesn’t this seem like the line that everyone is going to have in a teaser or parlay this week? The Cardinals defense has been sneaky good and kept them in games despite Carson Palmer being abysmal. I feel like a lot of people are gonna be disappointed when Arizona has 2 defensive/special team touchdowns in the first half. This game just smells too fishy.


Pittsburgh -3 over Oakland

Risk: 110 Sonic Rings

To Win: 100 Sonic Rings


The Steelers win 2 in a row and all of a sudden there isn’t anything to worry about? They beat the Jets and the Ravens, so let’s pump the breaks with all the talk that the Steelers are a legit team. They’re on the road in a hostile environment against a team coming off of a bye with a running quarterback that teams have struggled to figure out.


Now I did take both of these teams, but I am far from confident in them. They seem like the perfect sucker bets this week, but hey I’m just doing my job Mr. Mouse…….


Weekly Risk: 1330 Sonic Rings


To Win: 1404.30 Sonic Rings
