    Liz Cherokee…Bengals, Patriots, Jets, Giants(38)>3-1
    Bobf….Bengals,Pats(34), Browns, Giants>>>>2-2

    Clarification-final point spread on the Pats-Steelers game was Steelers -3 that would make a pick of either team a win by the rules. My understanding of betting is that you get the point spread at the time you place a bet. So this game will go by the spread at the time this contest is posted that at the time was Pats -1.5.

    CUMULATIVE STANDING

    Doug………..…….2-6
    Suitcase Jake….….4-4
    Bobf……………..…5-3 (62.5% success-second place)
    SC………………….4-4
    csg……………..….3-5
    AlJ… ……………..4-4
    Fast Eddie………. 3-5
    Liz Cherokee……3-1 (75% success-current leader)

    If you haven’t figured it out yet picking these games with the spread is really hard.
    Congratulations to Liz Cherokee. Showing faith in the home teams and carving out a clear win.
    Stick with it, this is gonna be fun.

  2. ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR WEEK 3 WILD CARD GAME??? says

    Any suggestions for the week 3 wild card game????

  3. NFL PICK 4- WEEK 3 says

    NFL PICK 4- WEEK 3

    Rules
    Each week the games for the Pats, Jets and Giants will be listed along with the points spreads. In addition one “Wild Card” Game will be listed.

    Pretty simple just pick four teams, one from each game USING THE POINT SPREAD. No ties, no over/under if there is a tie score USING THE POINT SPREAD you get credit for the win.

    Suitcase Jake Tie Breaker- pick the total score from ANY of the four games. Closest to come to that score in the event of a tie wins. If that does not resolve the tie then the HIGHEST of the point totals wins.

    Like in the Pick 6 change your picks any time for any reason up to game time.

    WEEKLY WINNER TAKE ALL-Each week there will be a winner
    SEASON STANDINGS-cumulative results will be tallied. Current leader based on winning percentage will be identified. Current leader is Liz Cherokee @ 75% correct.

    WEEK 3 Games

    Ravens (-3) at the Patriots
    Bengals (-5) at the Jets
    Giant (-1) at home vs the Cowboys
    Wild Card
    Bills (-6) at the Dolphins

  4. Patriots (43), Bengals, Cowboys, Bills

  5. Ravens, Bengals, Cowboys, Bills (47)

  6. Suitcase Jake says

    Ravens Bengals Cowboys (44) Dolphins

  7. Pats, bengals, cowboys, bills 50

  8. Ravens (44), bengals, cowboys, bills

  9. csg Pats 38, Bengals, Giant, Bills

    In future weeks we should consider adjusting any even pt spreads a half point to ensure there are no ties. With only picking 4 games per week. we are going to end up with a lot of ties.

  10. Suitcase Jake says

    CSG…. Good Idea …. 1/2 points eliminate ties….
    Thank you Shawn for the NEW Comm. Picks Location … Great Spot … that makes it so EASY TO FIND !!!!!! Great Idea !!!!!!

  11. All right then we have a proposal on the board and it’s been seconded.
    Like the csg Poll Bonus, csg as the author should be the one to stipulate how it works. Minus or plus a half. You make the call. I assume it would always apply unless of course the published spread is already fractional.
    We’ll start it for the week 4 games.

  12. Doug;
    For week 4, might i suggest the chiefs and buccaneers? Bucs favored by 2.5. But thats probably gonna change 5 times before game time. Personally, i’d take chiefs on that one but…
    Both coming off a loss. Both pissed.
    That could go either way imo.

    NFL Pick 4 Notes:
    -Suitcase Jake and Bobf the current full time participant leaders
    -Week 4 Wild Card game as requested by Bobf will be Chiefs(-2.5) at the Bucs a Sunday night game. Good choice!
    -It’s early but participants need to consider the minimum number of games to participate in for the season long championship. Feedback please!
    -Mike Florio and Chris Simms, both appearing on NBC NFL pre game shows are nationally recognized as experts on the NFL and do picks weekly of all the games. Even they struggle to pick games against the spread and hover around 50%. Making our two leaders that have picked all three weeks so far with a success rate of 67% all the more impressive. Can they keep it up???

    Week 4 Games

    Steelers (-3) at home vs the Jets
    Packers (-9.5) at home vs the Pats
    Chiefs (-1) at the Bucs (provided by Bobf)
    Giants (-3) at home vs the Bears

    Doug, Bobf, Suitcase Jake Pats first four game results side bet update.

    Suitcase Jake 0-4-he’s out
    Bobf 1-3 and correctly identified the Steelers win.
    Doug 1-3 and incorrectly predicted the Ravens game as a win.

    Both Doug and Bobf predicted a Packers loss. Therefore Bobf wins the side bet having correctly identified the Steelers game.
    Well done Bobf you know football as well and local short track racing.

  15. Week 4 Picks
    Steelers
    Packers
    Chiefs
    Giants (40)

  16. Hmmm, what to do. Seems pretty clear it’s necessary to go against the grain on at least one pick to win. Liz got her win in week 2 picking the Jets. Suitcase Jake picking the Dolphins in week 3.
    Anyone gutsy enough to pick the Pats to cover against the Packers for their pull it out of your ass week 4 pick?
    Hoyer hasn’t won an NFL game in 11 starts but the Packers run defense not great. Who knows maybe Rogers will be bored and get careless.

  17. csg steelers. pats 40. chiefs. giants

    Hoyer comes out to Foo fighters hero

  18. Suitcase Jake says

    Steelers, Packers, Bucs, Giants 44

  19. Steelers, Pats, Chiefs 50, Bears

  20. Teaser you Doug you.
    I agree, usually some kind of upset somewhere, but which one? Hmmmm
    My heart says chiefs, so I’m gonna go with bucs as my upset. So….
    steelers, packers, bucs,(44) giants

  22. New England sans Mac Jones at Lambeau Stadium early on had all the makings of a blow out. Not so fast. The chatter now is leaning Pats to beat the spread with just maybe an interesting game going into the 4th quarter.
    Congratulations to the UCONN Huskies beating the Fresno State Bulldogs who were picked to win by 23 points. Perhaps UCONN getting the crap beat out of them by national powerhouses is starting to pay off.
    The Kraft’s may want to keep an eye on how Jim Mora is progressing trying to bring UCONN back from football purgatory. Defense was outstanding and the offense while anemic was creative.

  23. Normally I’d stay away from a game with that big of spread (talking about pats packers).
    I’m sure most people think the way to be competitive is to keep ball on ground ala harris/stevenson. I’m sure pack will be ready for that. Which makes me think pats will do something different. What? I don’t know if they have many other options to consider to stay in it.
    My bigger concern, not so much mac being out, but Lawrence Guy out. They can get around Meyers out imo. I still think pack covers, but like racing, its football, where anything can happen. 1 key injury can change the whole complexion of game as we all know. Crap shoot.

  24. Good commentary.
    Pats did over perform in 2020 against good teams like the Chiefs and Bills and in 2021 against the Cowboys and Bucs. I’d be more suspicious of a Belichick team finding a way to keep it under the spread then most other coaches.
    I’m thinking the Pat’s do go with the run game plus dink and dunk. If the Packers shut down the run completely Katie bar the door the Pack covers and more because Hoyer is not a down field passer.
    One thing the Pat’s aren’t doing that is driving me nuts is pre snap movement and play action.

    NFL Pick 4 Week 4 Notes:
    -csg roars back into contention in the year long standings
    -Despite Suitcase Jakes contempt for a Brady-less Patriot team at some point he may have to pick the Patriots
    -Doug the only player to pick the Jets and blows a golden opportunity to out perform putting too much faith in Brady and too little in the Patriots.

  27. The slam dunk packers to cover, third string qb for pats, and right to the end of overtime! Great entertaining game! I thought originally that game would be over by halftime!
    I outfoxed myself on bucs. Outplayed in every aspect by mahomes and co. Ouch for me.
    Bills do it again! A late decision by harbaugh that i bet he wishes he had back this morning. Mahomes knows how to fall, jackson knows how to fall, Hurts knows how to fall, on and on. Allen? Takes a tackle like a back. How long before he gets seriously hurt?
    Looks like over abundance of caution now that the neurologist that cleared Tua was fired. Look for the league to really be tough on coming back from any type of head injury. A good thing.
    So who backs up Zappe? Turns out Meyers but he was injured too! Whew! On to week 5…..

  28. NFL Week 5 Wild Card Game Choice Wanted! says

    Possible week 5 wild card games.

    Cowboys at the Rams
    Raiders at the Chiefs
    Bengals at the Ravens
    A fourth choice not listed???

    Anyone want to pick one?
