    Week 7 wasn't easy for anyone. A few upsets. I fared not so well on the games with point spreads this time. Tough week.

    For those interested in trivia; The Favorite won 9/15, but lost 2 without using points. The Favorite lost 4 giving points (did-not-cover). The Favorite did cover 5 points games.

    Usually, I avoid using games with spreads over 14. Do you prefer the focus on ranked teams, or minimizing points games?

    I like the point spread games. Just didn't think them out more like I should of. Maybe 4 spread games a week at most.

    I think the points games rely too much on Vegas, and the people in Vegas are not sports experts as Finebaum said on his show this week. Does it make sense to divide the plus/minus by some factor, say 2? I don't like points games, but with no points the slate of teams is just a boring bunch of teams, especially if the spread is over 14. There's no "point" (pardon the pun) in putting a game like Florida versus Towson on the slate with no points because everyone will pick the obvious team, and that's not fun. At this "point" in the season, I like seeing the important games on the slate. I'm talking in circles. You know, it just depends on the week and how many good teams are playing each other. I understand how hard it is to pick the slate, cnestgr. I prefer focusing on ranked teams.
