Nostrathomas, seer of Sayers, was feeling a correction in the force during the early games last Sunday but recovered in fine fashion to finish 13-3 straight-up and 10-6 against the spread, the third straight week that Nostrathomas has finished .500 or better against the house this season.
Record for the year is now 35-13 straight-up and 31-17 against the spread.
Week 4 is the first bye week of the season. The New England Patriots take a break from the Belichick/Brady screw Goodell and the NFL tour while the Tennessee Titans reflect back on the first three weeks of the Marcus Mariota era.
As always these predictions are for entertainment purposes only. If you lose money you have only yourself to blame and should have listened to your mother about the evils of gambling. If you win, Nostrathomas reminds you that soothsaying is tough, thirsty work and beer ain’t exactly cheap these days.
Baltimore Ravens -3 @ Pittsburgh Steelers
The Ravens are 0-3 but favored on the road against their AFC North rival. The Steelers hold the statistical edge against Baltimore but that was with Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback…
Considering that favorites were dropping all over the NFL in Week 2 Nostrathomas was thrilled to finish the week 9-7 straight-up and 8-8 against the spread. Record for the 2015 season is now 22-10 straight-up and 21-11 against the spread.
Week 3 presents nine teams that will be attempting to stay undefeated, nine that will be attempting to win their first game of 2015 and a few that will try to keep their playoff dreams from dying until the leaves fall.
Remember, as always these predictions are for entertainment purposes only. If you lose money you have only yourself to blame and should have listened to your mother about the evils of gambling. If you win Nostrathomas reminds you that generosity is food for the soul…
Who the man? Nostrathomas the man! Nostrathomas can talk big after going 13-3 both straight-up and against the spread in Week 1.
As for this week, everyone starts Week 2 back at 0-0, unless you missed on Thursday night’s game, which, in that case you start 0-1
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs -3
Nostrathomas had no faith in Peyton Manning’s ability to win in Kansas City after his dismal performance against the Ravens. Even though Manning put up 256-yards passing and an 86.9 Passer Rating, Nostrathomas stands by that analysis. Manning was shot-putting passes all night. (Are receivers allowed to call for fair catches?)…
