House it going, everyone?
So...this is really crazy... it seems there's been some consistency over the past three weeks. The House's take in those weeks? $2650, $2700, and $2700. This nice little streak I have going has catapulted me to almost $10,000 fake profit on the year.
And this week, I pulled it off even without Harry making any bets!
Ah, I kid. Anyway, here are the results from this week. The race for Gambler of the Week is pretty close - I think you guys are going to have to share. At_Home@Wrigley, Curly Lambeau, st857, and NCshvDavid all missed one but made up for it with big wins elsewhere. Curly had a parlay that played out, David boldly took the high spread on Indy, st857 took advantage of my tendency to avoid high spreads on division battles, and Wrigley got Jacksonville and Philly right.

And now, for the spreads. If you're new to the House, you have $1000 of fake money to start with. If you're at 0, you may borrow from the Loan Shark for $100 interest per week until you pay the full amount back.
Here are the spreads - positive numbers mean the home team is favored, negative numbers mean the visitor is favored:
Denver at Houston +2.5
Cincinnati at San Francisco -11
Seattle at Carolina -10
Buffalo at Cleveland +3.5
Tennessee at Kansas City -6
Baltimore at Miami -4.5
NY Jets at New England +27 (stole this one, but it sounds good)
Arizona at New Orleans +2
Jacksonville at Pittsburgh +2.5
Green Bay at St. Louis -16
Atlanta at Tampa Bay +13.5
Indianapolis at Oakland -12
Philadelphia at Dallas +7.5
Detroit at San Diego +6
Washington at NY Giants +2.5
Chicago at Minnesota +5
Yes, you read those right. 6 spreads in double digits. Last week's Hanukkah blowouts are probably responsible.
So place your bets in the comments below, and let me know if you're borrowing from the Loan Shark, or if you'd like to repay earlier debts so you don't keep paying interest.
