Favorites and dogs split the final week of the regular season going 8-8 ATS.  Dogs finished 134-115-7 overall (53.8%) on the season. In review, underdogs hit over 60% during the first half of the year, but favorites took over in the second half.  If you predominately play one or the other, 2012 gave new meaning to "peaks and valleys".

Week 17 Recap

Sunday was a light day for me as I didn't want to get too involved in a bunch of meaningless games.  The Packers and Texans both came up short and both of them were head-scratchers.  There's not much we can do when Christian Ponder had the kind of day he did.  He not only managed the game well and limited his mistakes, but he also threw 3 TD passes on the day.  A sign of things to come next week?  I highly doubt it.

The Texans once again had another big letdown game after failing to clinch home field advantage in the playoffs. It's one thing to lose to a hot Vikings team, but losing to a team with nothing to play for is concerning.  Will things be different at home in the Wild Card round?
