Betting is a lot more fun when we’re all in it together, and there is no better way to get a giant sweat than joining Matchbook’s Colossus NFL syndicate. We pick’em, you bet’em and hopefully, we all end up on Sunday night looking for a big result.
Colossus syndicates are simple. They have crowdfunded bets where a syndicate leader, in this case – Team Matchbook, picks out a slate of bets on the NFL point spread jackpot pool and you can buy a percentage of the total bet amount. If we win you win the same percentage of the jackpot or whatever the bet is cashed out for.
Each week we’ll explain the bets and why we choose them and if you like our thinking then simply buy in and come along for the ride. You can choose to join the Pick 4 or if you want a bigger risk and bigger return join us for the big Pick 7. Redzone will never be the same again.
This week’s picks with Aidan “Sully” O’Sullivan:
Panthers @ Lions – Panthers by 7-12
We’re expecting the Panthers to bounce back here and against a Lions team that are struggling to protect the quarterback this looks like a comfortable win for Cam and them covering 7-12 points should be a good bet.
Cowboys @ Falcons – Falcons by 7-12
This is a must-win game for both teams, but the Falcons are very strong at home and it’s hard to see Cowboys quarterback Dak keeping up with Matt Ryan here and we’d expect a fairly comfortable Falcons win.
Steelers @ Jaguars – Steelers by 7-18
The Jaguars season is done and the Steelers are getting hot at the right time and we can’t see this being anything other than a Steelers win, the only question is by how much. It’s unlikely Blake Bortles will be scoring much against this resurgent Steelers defense.
Broncos @ Chargers – Chargers by either 7-18
You should always be wary of a divisional match-up, but the Chargers are clearly better on paper than the Broncos whose season looks to over. We’d expect the Chargers to cover but we will play cautiously on the spread here and cover a couple of possible results.
Eagles @ Saints – Saints by either 13-24
The Saints are playing with a real urgency right now and they are not only beating teams they are destroying them. The Eagles don’t look the same team as last year and the Saints at home are very tough to stop so a big win looks on the cards here.
Vikings @ Bears – Vikings by 1-6
Another divisional matchup but with the Vikings coming off a bye and the Bears having a terrible record against their rivals we are happy to take the Vikings here but it’s likely to be a close one in a cold Chicago.
Chiefs @ Rams – Either side by 7-12
What a game this looks like being with the two hottest teams in the NFL going head-to-head in what could be a real slugfest. We don’t think it’s a one-score game but at the same time we don’t expect it to be a blowout so a 7-12 point win looks likely. But it’s so hard to call the winner we’ve gone for both.
- Raiders @ Cardinals – Cardinals by 7-12
- Eagles @ Saints – Saints by either 13-24
- Vikings @ Bears – Vikings by 1-6
- Chiefs @ Rams – Either side by 7-12
