BTSC Bookie: An exercise in betting on NFL games for the 2019 season

1st September, 16:27

Betting lines have always intrigued me. Although I can count on one hand the number of times I've placed a wager on an NFL game, I've often been interested about the process of sports betting and if I could do it successfully. Between the lines, the over/under, and how things move as a game approaches, I've often felt I could finish to the good each week if I placed my bets properly. I also have a hunch that I am not alone.

For this reason, I've decided to use some virtual money (lets call them "BTSC Bucks") to see how the readers of Behind The Steel Curtain would fare betting on NFL games. Here's how it's going to work:

So that's how it's going to work. Hopefully this will be a fun and worthwhile activity which may give some incentive for some to scoreboard watch on on Sundays. Be on the lookout for the "BTSC Bookie" article each week and make sure you vote for the game with which you would place your hard-earned money.
