NFL 2018 Week 5 Recap

SIN Fishermen Balancing

Life is all about balance and when the pendulum swings too far in one direction disaster usually follows. That said, you always want the pendulum to be firmly on the winning side, but we all know it doesn’t work that way and there are always going ups and downs. This is a job and every professional knows this from the beginning.

This brings us to our Week 5 results and yup, you guessed it – our results were bad. But let’s qualify what “bad” is for a professional sports betting network, which is arguably the greatest assembly of prognosticating minds ever put together to focus on realizing gains and inspiring lobster memes. Do you know how hard it was for me to get Jacques Tannenbaum to agree to sell his NFL prop prediction model on this website? That man doesn’t do anything except think about, and bitch about, laying action, all while chugging Pepsi and puffing on bootlegged cigarettes. We’re all lucky that he’s both A) still alive, and B) sharing his masterpiece with us.

So now “bad” around here is a week where under a 55% win percentage – you know this by looking at old recaps in our Gambling News Section and admiring our posted final record for the 2017 season: 58% for game lines and 57% for props. (Please use your lobster bib to wipe that drool off your face.) To be clear, these numbers are not only “great”, they deserve even higher praise because every play has been posted on this website for full transparency. I’m honestly getting tired of having to explain this to you every week.

Anyway, we did bad this week and only won 51% of our props, dragging down our season percentage to 53%. Sorry guys. However, we didn’t crash and burn (yet) so our numbers remain reasonably balanced around the 50% mark. Yes, we always shoot for 55% with anything over that being gravy, which we up here in Quebec use to drown our french fries and cheese curds in.
