LazyLine NFL Week 9 Betting Selections

Pulling Out of a Nosedive

No wisecracks this week. Just a rock-solid selection to partially make up for our worst week ever last week and a very bad 2-week run.

Lazy Line results for the year: 8 wins and 12 losses against the spread, with 11 winning units vs. 16 losing units. (Using $100 as a base betting unit, we have […]

LazyLine NFL Week 8 Betting Selections

Ebola Panic Yields to Manning Mania
Remember when Peyton Manning adulation reached its peak before last year’s Super Bowl…from sports networks to ad agencies to betting parlors around the globe? During last season’s playoffs we joked around here that pretty much any anchor or analyst at ESPN would get naked and oiled if Manning entered […]

LazyLine NFL Week 7 Betting Selections

Last week we bet with the squares, taking two favorites of 7 points or more. And we paid the price, going 0-3 for the week. This week we’ll try to bet like the sharps and reverse that horrible outcome at the betting windows.

Results for the year: 6 wins and 6 losses against the spread, with 8 […]

LazyLine NFL Week 6 Betting Selections

Two picks last week. Both were winners. The Chargers blew out the Jets. And the Seahawks won and covered as road favs in Washington despite having 3 TDs nullified because of penalties.

Results for the year: 6 wins and 3 losses against the spread, with 8 winning units vs. 3 losing units. (Using $100 as a base […]

LazyLine NFL Week 5 Betting Selections

One pick. One big 2-unit win. That’s the tally for last week, when we bet 2 units on the Packers in Chicago. The new tally for the year: 4 wins and 3 losses, and 6 winning units vs. 3 losing units. We see two games offering value this week:

NY Jets at San Diego

LazyLine NFL Week 4 Betting Selections

Other than a momentary lapse of reason that had us backing Ryan Fitzpatrick on the road, we were perfect in week 3, hitting 3 of 4 games. With our 2-unit bet on the Seahawks, we notched 4 winning units. That elevates us into the profit zone for the year: 4 wnning units, 3 losing units. […]

Washington at Philly
Official Line: Philly -6

Super Bowl XLVIII: Grab a Comfy Cushion!

by Roger LeBlanc and Terry Tortorich

Official Line: Denver -3
Lazy Line: Seahawks -7. Seahawks are a 4-unit play.
Comments: The opening line varied from one sports book to another, but for the most part the Seahawks opened as the favorites. By game time they might be 3-point ‘dogs everywhere.

After Richard Sherman’s infamous rant at the end […]

NFL Conference Wrap-Up

The Seahawks delivered a 4-unit win for us, putting the Lazy Line picks in the black. Since we started posting them in Week 13, we’ve notched 8 wins and 8 losses and a push. However, in terms of betting units, we now stand at 16-13. (We erroneously totaled our units as 13-14 last week, but the […]

NFL Week #17 Lazy Line Plays
