The 2018 NFL Regular season comes to an end today. On behalf of the Action Network, thank you for following our Sharp Reports all season long. The next time you read one of these columns, we’ll be breaking down playoff games. In the immortal words of the great philosopher Bart Scott, “Can’t Wait!”

They don’t bet games based on bias or gut instinct. Instead, they are 100% analytical and value-driven.
