The NFL’s divisional playoff round was a mixed bag for us here at the Tuley’s Takes home office, though I spent Saturday at Circa with VSiN superfan Randy McKay and work colleagues Matt Youmans and Lou Finocchiaro.
I split my best bets on the Rams + 7 and Browns + 10, but as has been the case most of the football season, my teaser portfolio came through to make it a profitable weekend. We posted here last week that I was teasing the Packers, Ravens and Buccaneers. The Ravens came up short at + 8.5, which is hard in today’s NFL when you allow only 17 points, but the Ravens managed just a field goal. That killed my Packers/Ravens and Ravens/Buccaneers parlays, but fortunately I still had Packers/Buccaneers. And then when the Chiefs were bet down to -8 on Sunday morning, I added Chiefs -2/Buccaneers + 9 to my portfolio. (Hopefully readers have learned enough about advantage teasers capturing the key numbers of 3 and 7 to make this play themselves or saw my late post on Twitter @ViewFromVegas.) Middling my previous bets on Browns + 10 with the Chiefs -2 in Kansas City’s 22-17 victory was the perfect result.
