Monday night football picks may seem like the toughest predictions that you'll make each week but the truth is that they're the easiest to beat long term. Long term is defined as "over the years", as everything in football betting is a marathon, not a sprint. As much as we'd love to say that we'll win every week, the truth is that ALL football wagering is a grind and battle to beat 52.38% (the breakeven mark when you factor in the vigorish/house advantage the bookie charges).
The reason that we believe MNF picks are easier to beat is that the bookies know that the whole football gambling world is focused on this one game. The oddsmakers/bookmakers know which side the public is going to side with, so often times, the spread will be a tad bit inflated.
If you're able to determine which spread is inflated, you instantly have an edge as most football spreads are predicated on key numbers (common final score margins) that include 3, 4, 6, 7, and 14 points.
A team getting an extra half point can be HUGE in your long term win-loss record against the spread. Think about how many times you have held your head with both hands, blood pressure up, sweat beads on your forehead, thinking... "Oh man! I lost by a freakin' half point! I think we can all agree that we'd all rather be blown out than lose by that excrutiating 1/2 point that instantly throws your mind into reverse thinking "if that FG kicker only would have made that chipshot that he missed" or any other number of scenarios that caused you to lose a tight game.
Again, the bookies know which side (team) most bettors are going to side (wager on) with. Believe me when I say that extra 1/2 point benefits them more than you over the long run.
In closing, we've picking games against the spread since we were old enough to drive. We're not embarrassed to admit that we absolutely lost our butts for the first 10 years that we bet on games. During that time, the lightbulb went off as losing got old and provoked us to do some studying and get educated on how sports betting really works, which is a ton of psychology and learning key numbers.
We're proud to say that we hold the advantage over the books every Monday night. This doesn't mean that we're going to win every week or every season, but we WILL prevail long term by beating the house at their own game.
