NFL Picks Week 3

Games being played September 27, 2015 The spreads and over/under’s were taken from the MGM Grand Sportsbook as reported by www.vegasinsider.com on September 25, 2015.

Week 2 Recap

Wow, what a shitty week of predicting football games.  I went a lousy 1-4.  There were a couple close calls, but, overall, I just made some really bad picks.  As is always the case, though, the more games I see, the better my understanding of the match-ups.  Theoretically, this should result in a better prediction […]

Games being played September 20, 2015 The spreads and over/under’s were taken from the MGM Grand Sportsbook as reported by www.vegasinsider.com on September 17, 2015.

How can I trust anything I’ve seen so far from either the Packers or the Lions in this tough divisional […]

It was close in a couple games, though, and I’m starting to feel dialed-in. Here’s a quick recap of the games I played and what happened upon reflection. WINS (W) […]

NFL Picks Week 2

I learned more from week 1 than all of the preseason. Still, it’s important not to jump to too many conclusions. Some teams played above their heads because of the extra time to prepare. Aside from keeping track of injuries, player development, individual match-ups, and trends in schemes, the single most important quality to look […]

Week 1 Recap

In this week’s picks, I went 3 of 5 for an accuracy of 60%. Not bad, but I can do better. As much as we learned in the first week, there are still a lot of unknowns heading into week 2. Below are some observations I took away from my first week picks. Can’t wait […]
