Sunday was another action-filled day in the Tuley’s Takes home office, especially as dogs kept barking in the NFL.
Dogs went 8-5 ATS on Sunday with 1 pick-’em (9-5 ATS so far in Week 5, including the Colts’ upset of the Broncos on Thursday Night Football), and we went 5-2 ATS with our Best Bets that we listed in the Sunday version of this column with wins on the Giants + 8.5 vs. Packers, Texans + 7 at Jaguars, Falcons + 10 at Buccaneers, Cowboys + 5.5 at Rams and Bengals + 3.5 -120 at Ravens (and 6-2 ATS if including the Browns + 3 vs. the Chargers from earlier in the week). The losses were on the Steleers + 14 at Bills and Lions + 3.5 at Patriots.
It was also a fun day as I spent it at Circa’s Stadium Swim with my friend, Tony “DURBIFY” Gordon, the reigning Circa Sports Million champion, and Michael “MYCOOL” Sax, one of the Circa Survivor winners from last year.
The day ended with my regular 12:15 a.m. ET/9:15 p.m. PT spot on “The Greg Peterson Experience” as I stayed around for the live broadcast in the VSiN Studio adjacent to the Circa sportsbook as we recapped Sunday’s betting action and looked ahead with picks on Monday Night Football and NFL Week 6.
So, let’s do that again here as we do daily in this space. And let’s also take a peek in Contest Corner at how the contestants are faring in this season’s big Vegas contests.
