It’s not easy weathering the storms of the NFL season but eventually, we will find fair skies and calm waters. Until then, we must don our rain gear and batten down the hatches as both of our totals flamed last week and it’s time for a new approach. Let’s check out a pair of Week 7 totals and get a little back from the book.
London’s calling – again – and the NFL is only too happy to answer the phone. This time the Titans, losers of a 21-0 snoozefest to Baltimore last week, will take on the Chargers. If you don’t think jet lag and the change in time zones play a role in these games, then think again. That doesn’t mean the NFL series in London, since its inception in 2007, has been a license to print money on the “under” because the NFL odds board tends to reflect lower totals to account for such mischief. Nevertheless, three of the last four have gone low in Old Blighty including last week’s Seattle-Oakland tussle.
Special Thanks to my pal Swinging Johnson for stepping in for me this week.
