The NFL is back and I've had the first of what I hope to be many winning bets.
If you read yesterday's post, you would be aware that I felt the Green Bay Packers had a chance of beating the Chicago Bears.
The bookmakers had Green Bay as three-and-a-half point underdogs when the betting markets for week one were published weeks ago.
I bet on them there and then. For starters, I liked the half a point and felt that it would be down to +3 eventually.
My assumption was spot on. The Pack were +3 when I checked in a few weeks later. They were still at +3 when I looked yesterday.
Not that I needed the points when all was said and done. Green Bay won the game straight up with a score of 10-3.
