Update: check here for Cousin Sal’s week 4 picks
Our Cousin Sal is back! Hop back on the bandwagon fellas! Sal swept his card last week, going 3-0. Carolina started off pretty shaky, gave us a scare early on, but it was not close by the end. The only game that was a bit iffy was the Giants game, where Giants actually had a chance to score a TD on their last drive with the game tied, but Tom Coughlin is a genius, kneeled 3 times at the 1 yard line and kicked a chip shot game winning field goal as time expired. Nice week Sal!
Starting Week 2 Bankroll: $8,450
+$1,400 Carolina + $700 Pittsburgh + $800 New Orleans
Ending Week 2 Bankroll: $11,350

Here are this week’s winners:
COUSIN SAL 2016 NFL WEEK 3 BEST BETS:
Best Bet of the Week (Season Record 1-1)
[winner] Arizona at Buffalo (+4.5) – Basically Sal’s going by his favorite system for this bet, it seems like a ballsy bet, but it’s not a large “best bet” like the past week, it’s only for $1000. Cardinals are travelling across the country to play a 10am game (Arizona time), and a road favorite to win by over a field goal. Buffalo is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against the Cardinals. Take the home team and the points.
Other Best Bets (Season record 3-1)
[loser] Denver at Cincinnati (-3.5) – Last week Denver lost starters DeMarcus Ware and right tackle Donald Stevenson, not good for Siemian’s first road game. Cincy is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 following a loss, look for a bounce back. Sal’s putting $700 on Cincy to cover.
[loser] Los Angeles at Tampa Bay (-6) – TB just got blown out last week and lost their starting RB Dougie Martin, while the Rams just beat the mighty Seahawks, and TB are still almost a TD favorite, Sal thinks this is the ultimate suckers bet to take the points. Rams are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, and they haven’t won a week 3 game since 2010. Sal’s taking TB (-6) for $800.
