UPDATE: A few early week 9 picks are now posted.  I'm waiting on line movement for the rest and my mid-season review will be up soon.

Week 8 is almost in the books with only the Monday night game to go.   The good news about today was that I continued my hot streak on sides and props.  I went 4-1 on sides and 11-2-2 on sides in the last three weeks.  I ended the day 8-5-1 on props and 21-14-1 over the last three weeks.    

The bad news is that both totals fizzled out and are turning out to be a complete crap shoot.  It doesn't seem to matter how much of an edge I have on a total, the results continue to defy logic. Teasers went 1-1 as the Jets got nothing done on offense getting shut out at home after their bye. I wanted to play the TB/ARI under based on the stats, but that game sky-rocketed over the total.  I will post some whacky trends in this area in my first half review.

The public once again had a losing day going 5-7.  We are now 8 weeks into the season and the public has yet to have a winning week. The pros picks aren't done yet, but so far the Hilton consensus picks are 3-1 and defending champ Steve Fezzik is 2-2.  

In my first half season review I'm going to break down how things have gone in all categories - sides, totals, teasers, props. I will break it down how each area did in the first four weeks, and how they've done in the last four weeks.  I'll also outline how the public and pros have done and what trends to look for in the second half of the season. Enough data has accumulated to make the necessary adjustments down the stretch and I'm expecting to finish with my fifth straight profitable NFL season.

My first half season review will be up tomorrow along with some early week 9 picks.
