Week-14 Picks

Last week we were 4-3, including 2-1 on Big Plays. YTD we are 37-36-2 (50.7%). In the WSJ we were 3-2, pushing the YTD to 22-20-1 (52.4%). So surprising that we’re short the Giants. And, for that matter, long the Bills and Jets, two of our other most familiar positions. Hoping the edge on that…

Week-13 Picks

A painful 0-4 last week. Apparently we are the high-variance outfit this season.  YTD we are 33-33-2 (50%), and 19-18-1 (51.4%) in the WSJ (they published no picks last week due to the holiday). For QBs we have Roethlisberger and Vick out, and the Niners playing Kaepernick. Quick note on line moves, which we accidentally…

Week-12 Picks

5-2 last week, including our Monday post on the Niners, pushing our YTD to 33-29-2 (53.2%). We were 3-1 in the WSJ, so now 19-18-1 (51.4%) YTD. We’re still adjusting for the 4 big QB injuries. Present rankings assume Roethlisberger and Vick are out, and give Smith and Cutler a 50% chance of playing. As always,…

Week-11 Picks

3-5 last week. We hit some gloriously high-profile upsets (Saints, Bengals and Texans), but missed the others. In the WSJ we were 3-4. YTD we are 28-27-3 (50.9%) here and 16-17-1 (48.5%) in the WSJ. This week we are grappling with the rash of QB injuries. We detail this in separate blog posts, but our…

Week-10 Picks

5-0 last week! Our first undefeated weekend. Been waiting for that one. They’re tough to get, of course, but there’s so much chance involved that if you pick long enough the odds favor eventually getting one. We enjoyed it. Pushes our YTD up to 25-22-3 (53.2%). We were 4-1 in the WSJ (dropping a winning…

Week-9 Picks

1-2 last week, missing getting back into the black by a Dez Bryant finger or two. We’re now 20-22-3 YTD (47.6%). We were 1-1 in the WSJ, making us 9-12-1 YTD there (42.8%). As always, our lines are calculated directly from our power rankings – we don’t consider injuries, weather, matchups, etc. Lines are from…
