NFL Betting Picks, Sunday 9.14.14

After a 2-0 opening Sunday, I felt very confident heading into NFL Week 2.  I released four NFL betting picks to clients.  As always, these are the same four bets I made on Sunday’s NFL card.  All four bets were on the 1 PM ET games, making for an interesting three hours or so.

My biggest bet of the day was a 3-Unit MAX BET on Dallas +3.5 (-115).  If you read my analysis, then you know I had this game pegged.  We also popped 2 Units on the Dallas Money Line at +160.  I’ll admit to being skeptical when Tennessee came out firing after halftime and cut the Cowboys lead to 16-10.  Thoughts of “same ol’ Cowboys” were echoing very loudly in my head and I tweeted those same sentiments.  But the Cowboys responded with a TD of their own and took it 26-10.  As I said before, this much-maligned defense is playing rather well thus far.  And the Cowboys have an excellent run-blocking offensive line that has led to DeMarco Murray gashing opponents for nice chunks of yardage.

We also had the Under 43 in the Dolphins-Bills game.  I admittedly did not watch a single snap of this game because I had so much riding on the Cowboys.  But thanks to NFL Sunday Ticket and DVR, I’ll be checking this one out soon.

A 4-0 sweep wasn’t meant to be, as the Giants lost their home opener to Arizona.  I made the Giants bet late and as soon as the bet was accepted, news broke of Carson Palmer’s inactive status.  That led to the Giants being bet up & if I had had time, I would’ve bet out of this position.  I just knew the old “Injured Star” angle would be in full effect.  Sure enough , Arizona got the win and ruined what would’ve been a perfect betting day.

The NFL season record is now at 5-1 (83%) for +11 Units.  Needless to say, I’m very pleased with the start to this season.  Now if I could just get the college football betting turned around…
