Week Six Thursday Night Pick

October 12th, 2017

For the second straight week, I need to isolate my pick on the Thursday night game, because there’s just no way I’m finishing the rest before kickoff.

Of course, I might ask myself why I even bother. Last week’s results suggest I might be better off flipping a damned coin. I finished a horrible 6-8 straight up in week five. I was slightly better picking with the points, but 7-5-2 isn’t exactly the kind of thing one wants to be seen thumping ones chest about.

For the season, I’m now 44-33 (.571) straight up, 36-39-2 (.468) against the spread.

Let’s see if I can’t start making things worse right away this week. Here’s what not to expect in Charlotte.

Philadelphia (+3) at Carolina
No one ever plays well on Thursday night. And in a fairly evenly matched game with the prospect of sloppy play running high, the smart thing to do is to take the team that didn’t have to travel on short rest. But, you know, I look at these teams and I like the Philly defense, particularly their ability to create turnovers. So I’m looking for the upset here. Eagles by three.
