Weekly Market Watch: Trader Anxiety

⚾️ Market Movement: NLDS Game 3: ATL Braves @ PHI Phillies, Friday October 14th, 4:37pm ET

Honestly? I’m not even worried about what the pregame price of this game is because I cannot handle 9 innings of playoff baseball. Not with these bullpens. October is for manifesting Baseball Magic and while I assume Philly will be favored at home in Game 3, these two ‘pens combined to allow 8 runs in Game 1. I’d rather save my bankroll and figure out in-game how to trade as crunch-time approaches.


🚨 Biggest Game of the Week: BUF Bills @ KC Chiefs, Sunday October 16th, 4:25pm ET

Imagine this: Your NFL team leads the league in scoring. You’re 4-1 and have been to 2 Super Bowls in the last 4 years, not to mention 4 consecutive AFC Championships. You’re also a home underdog Sunday to a team you’ve beaten 3 times in the last 2 seasons. The Chiefs are trading at just $43 at home against the Man-On-Fire-Incarnate Bills ($58 to win) despite a rolling offense and much improved defense. 


🐻 Bullish or Bearish: 3 Alabama @ 6 Tennessee, Saturday Oct 15th, 3:30pm ET

One of three games featuring unbeaten teams this weekend. Alabama is more talented (obviously), but has shown major cracks against inferior opponents this year. For some reason, the Vols are screaming ‘value’ to me. Tennessee is priced at $28 to win and $38 to cover +3.5. Plus their endzone is checkered. That’s just cool. Are you bullish or bearish on the Volunteers’ chances vs. Saban and Co.?
