Another week, another picks column. Another week, nothing but the picks column. Like I said a couple of week ago, I might need to consider changing the name of the web page. But, and this is important, two thing have happened. Chris is back from his trip to California, so we can record on the weekends. And, our weekend craziness is going to take a break with soccer finishing up soon and Liam’s play performance happening next month. That will free up a lot of time for us to record, too. Oh, I thought of another thing. Winter break happens for all of us in December and continues into January for me. That means we will definitely get this thing on track for the new year.
Until then, I’ll continue to amuse and amaze with my weekly picks column. After a 10-5 record two weeks ago, I went 11-4 straight up last week. I’m also plus .500 against the spread over the last two weeks. Either what I said last week about the first 4 weeks of the season being crazy due to a shortened preseason and I’m getting the hang of things or the gambling gods are setting me up for a fall in the coming weeks. We shall see.
The Cosmic Joke of Thursday Night Football
A couple of weeks ago I stated that I would henceforth just be picking home teams on Thursday night football as they have an advantage and I’m quite busy during the week to pick a game before Thursday night. Well, the gambling gods responded to that challenge by making the Giants the home team last week and then the Cardinals this week. I suppose that says something for making such broad and sweeping proclamations. Needless to say, I did not pick the Cardinals this week.
Week 7 Picks
To hit my deadline, I need to just list the picks again. Going to scarecrow in the park and then a 2 year old’s birthday party.
Chargers over Titans in London
Pats beat the Bears, but I have Mitch in daily fantasy so hopefully their defense still stinks.
Colts roll the D3 Bills
Detroit steals a win in Miami
Vikes beat a surprisingly frisky Jets
Browns over the Bucs. What can I say other than God Bless the Browns.
Jags nip the Texans
C’mon New Orleans, beat the Rats
LA Rams stay undefeated against the 49ers
Dallas over the Racists
Chefs get back on track against Cincy
And, the Falcons beat the hapless Gynts
Nothing here to really get excited about. Certainly nothing on the order of the Chefs/Pats game last week. The Steelers are on a bye, which gives me the chance to talk about how I’ve gone from a life long Steelers fan to actively despising the team. See you next weekend.
