LAS VEGAS -- It was another solid performance for "Tuley's Take" last week with a 5-3 against-the-spread record from a Sunday/Monday card that saw favorites go 7-6 ATS. I did lose with my "Chalk Play of the Week" on the St. Louis Rams, but I went 5-2 with my underdog plays (the New York Jets were the only covering 'dog that I missed). By hitting 62.5 percent of my plays, my overall win percentage dipped from 63.8 percent to 63.6 percent, but I'll take that, too. For those who complain in the comments section that I take all underdogs and pass on the other games, that's exactly my goal and I believe being selective has paid off.
