The Pi-Rate Ratings

Selections Against The Spread–September 17-21, 2015

Usually, when we look at a week and find that we like several different games, both straight up and via 10-point teasers, we are more than likely not finding fool’s gold.  Nevertheless, we are going to go all out and reveal the entire list.

What we concluded was that we liked nine different games straight up.  Afterwards, we looked at another seven teaser parlays.  If you are unfamiliar with what a “teaser” is, there are various point totals where you can move the line in your favor by that number of points.  The odds vary depending on the total points in your teaser.  We like 10-point teasers, because 10 points really affects the line, and when you play a 3-game parlay, the odds are about the same as playing sides.  It is called a “teaser” because it looks so easy to win these wagers, while in actuality, they are much harder to win than picking one team on a side or the totals of a game.  However, there are some mathematical wizards that have succeeded to the point where they cannot find a place to wager, because their teaser-picking accuracy is too high.  Note: We are mathematical lovers, not wizards.
