Tuley's Takes on NFL Week 12


If you read the VSiN betting recap on NFL Week 11 by Ben Fawkes and yours truly, you know that the vast majority of bettors had a bad week. We saw that coming as the top 5 most-selected plays in both the Circa Sports Million and Westgate SuperContest went 0-5. I’ve always said those serve as a solid barometer of how the public does against the sportsbooks as they show the most popular bets and tend to include the biggest line moves.

But if you’re a contrarian bettor like we are in the Tuley’s Takes home office, you probably fared better. I went 3-2 with my major contest picks and on the VSiN NFL Best Bets page. But we wish we had done a little better with our overall bets as I went 4-4 in this column (4-3 ATS and a loss on Falcons-Saints Over 51) to stand at a respectable 43-35 (55%) on the season. Our teaser recommendations didn’t fare as well as they had recently, going just 4-3, but that was a result of the overall market not faring as well.
