NFL Predictions 2012: Week 8

Sport

 Maybe Microsoft Word bugs should screw up my picks more often. I went 12-1 straight up (67-37 overall). I nudged out a 7-6 week against the spread (53-48-3 overall) and also went 7-6 on the over/under (52-50-2 overall) to stay ahead of Vegas.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 7

Sport

A wacky week, especially after the midway point, really did me in. It’s rare I lose straight up like I did at 6-8 (55-36 overall) but obviously it does happen and it hurt to miss on the final 7 results that came in. My lone bright spot was going 8-5-1 against the spread (46-42-3 overall). I lost on the over/under at 6-8 (45-44-2 overall) and in general need to get better against Vegas.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 6

Sport

I think I finally had a week I can be proud of. Certainly straight up going 12-2 (49-28 overall) was great. Even better I was 10-4 against the spread (38-37-2 overall) and even being a flat 6-7-1 on the over/under (39-36-1 overall) didn’t bum me out too much.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 5

Sport

Life was not too bad for me last week. I returned to double digits in straight up wins at 10-5 (37-26 overall) and went just south against the spread at 7-8 (28-33-2 overall). Most importantly I did my thing on the over/under going 9-6 (33-29-1 overall). Hopefully it will get better and better for me from here on out.

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 4

Sport

I have been picking games for a long time, since I was in high school in fact. Never before have I seen an ending like just happened on MNF. Heading into the play I felt a small consolation knowing I had the straight up winner and spread winner in my pocket to cap off a horrific prediction week for a lot of people who tried to guess these things. Granted, a lot of crazy plays go against me to cost me wins or over/unders, whatever. This felt criminal and I didn’t even have money on it. This is the first time I have wanted to report my “real” results, but I can’t. After the jobbing I was 7-9 straight up (27-21 overall) 8-8 against the spread (21-25-2 overall) and 6-10 on the over/under (24-23-1 overall).

NFL Predictions 2012: Week 3

Sport

To be honest I was surprised to do have done so well against Vegas in the opening week because early games are so hard to predict. I’m not at all surprised to have given back the progress I made overall in my “bets”. Straight up I went 10-6 again (20-12 overall) which I will take. Against the spread I had a frustrating 6-8-2 week (13-17-2 overall) and lost on the over/under at 6-9-1 (18-13-1 overall).

Sport

Not a bad opening week. Picking winners I was a respectable 10-6. I stumbled just a bit against the spread at 7-9, but made up for it on the over/under at 12-4.

 It might be the end of the world as we know it in a couple months if you believe the Mayans or Hollywood or whoever is yelling on the street corner. I could care less. It's the beginning of football season and I'm ready to kill it again this year.

NFL Predictions 2011: Super Bowl XLVI

Sport

In the title games I again split straight up and the 1-1 mark left me 6-4 for the playoffs which hurts. However, I was perfect against Vegas for the second time in the playoffs. My 2-0 mark against the spread left me a wicked 9-1 and the 2-0 on the over/under put me at 8-2. On the total season I am now 175-84 straight up, 133-128-5 against the spread and 155-106-4 on the over/under.
