A Very Good NFL Sunday Morning Everyone:

Say goodbye to those red figures with the NCAA football bankroll as we picked up over 13 units this weekend in the college gridiron, making last weekend's rough patch a distant memory. A stress-free, 4-1 (+9.6 unit) day where 3 of the 4 winners on Saturday cashed fairly easily. That is a well handicapped card right there. It really feels refreshing to have a profitable Saturday again and finally get that record into double digit units.

Where are the haters now? Where are those idiots that were trashing my comments last Saturday that think they have a clue about handicapping? Where's that putz who posted in my comment section pretending to be Brandon 'I scam you out of your money' Long? Where's the dope who was saying that he was fading my plays. I hope you faded me this weekend, loser.

Alright, I am done ranting. Lets get to the Week 8 Sunday NFL Picks. Again, I worked very hard on this card and I really crunched the numbers here. I am not going to make any promises or guarantees, but I will say this; The NFL is one of my stronger sports. I had a terrible Sunday in week 7 and I rarely have back to back terrible weekends in the NFL. Again, I am not going to promise a big day or anything, but I don't think I am going to have another trainwreck this week. Like I said, I feel very confident in this card and I am looking for a strong close to the weekend.

My week 8 NFL plays include a 5-unit play in the 1pm games and a 4-unit play in the 4pm games along with a few average-to-small plays. I also have a 3-unit ncaa football play in the evening matchup where this play would have definetely been on my Saturday card if it were on the schedule. So, The Visionary has a fairly big Sunday card overall. I do like the Monday Night Football matchup a lot and am thinking that I will have a 4-unit move tomorrow night as well. Alright, here we go for the week 8 NFL picks. Who's riding with me today....?

That Atlanta game was the most frustrating game that I have played this year. I hate when I lose plays like this. The officials called a muffed punt when the player didn't even touch the ball. I cannot stand when you handicap the game perfectly and then you get multiple bad calls and bad breaks throughout the entire game. I can tolerate one blown call or bad play. But, games like this are just terribly frustrating.

It looks like we are going to have a profitable day in the NFL. But, the officials just killed one of my most profitable weekends of the football season. You gotta love the NFL!

Good weekend overall and Tulsa can make it a nice profitable day! But, either way it's a good weekend. I hope some people made some money with 'The Vis'

....And..Let's go Golden Hurricane!

I had a fantastic day.

Atlanta game aside, I hit every other play, including parlays and soccer plays.

Thanks a lot vis.

Willmore,

I am very glad to hear that. Very profitable weekend indeed. Keep up the profits and keep playing the winners. Also, don't forget to keep on managing your bankroll. It's very easy to get undisciplined when you are on a bit of a run. It never hurts to be reminded to keep your bankroll in check either. Just thought I would be that voice for ya.

I hope other readers had a profitable weekend as well. We were just two plays away from coming close to hitting that 150 unit goal that I set for the end of October. It's looking like I can hit that mark again with a strong finish to the month.

I really wish that damn official didn't screw us in the Atlanta game. That 9 point spread was set way too high and I had that game pegged. The Eagles were lucky to win that game and they covered 9 points.

Oh yea...What happened to Westbrook sliding to end the game at the one as he did last year. How come he didn't do that for us today? haha.

Games like that just frustrate the hell out of me and those type of losses are exactly why some gifted handicappers prefer to keep their bet amounts the same for every game.

As for Monday, I have a big play for the Monday nighter. I am also considering move in the World Series game 5. I want to see the line first. So, I will post Monday's card once the line gets released for the game.

Have a good night Willmore...

Hey Willmore...

I forgot to ask you if you played the Tulsa game. They looked impressive in the second half. I can't believe that team isn't ranked higher.

Willmore said...

Yeah, I played it. Good job, though I was a bit worried when it was a 19-14 after the 1st half.

And yeah, I'm managing my bankroll, staying to the same unit value and not forcing any plays. At least I try to.

Great work this weekend Visionary. You never fail to make up for any losing weekends we might have, and then some. Your college action this week was amazing. Keep the winning picks coming.
