Week 11 Picks

Record is picking winners. The against the spread contest (which I'm winning) is mgrex03's project.

Week 1: 10-6, Week 2: 10-5, Week 3: 11-5, Week 4: 6-7, Week 5: 9-5  Week 6: 9-5, Week 7: 12-2, Week 8: 8-6, Week 9: 10-6, 10-4, Week 10: 12-2

Total 97-49 (66.4%)    , 97-47 (67.4%)  ATS 83-61 (57.6%)

97 correct puts me behind only ESPN's accuscore system on Mgrex03's list of experts picking winners.

I'm still leading in the ATS contest so I will continue to post my reasonings for those picks.

Jets +3.5    FO says the Jets are better, Advanced NFL Stats says the Jets are better, I don't think the Jets are better and if I hadn't already submitted the pick I would keep flip-flopping on this one, but getting the FG is enough that I'm not stressing the pick.

Falcons -5.5  That Denver D is terrible, and the Falcons are a pretty good team. I hate the Matt Ryan is living up to the hype he got pre-draft.

Lions +13.5, Bengals +8.5, Oakland + 10.5,   The weekly "this teams suck, but not THAT bad" picks. I was a 58 yard FG off the upright from going 4-2 on these last week.

Bears +3.5 The Packers kept it close through special teams play last week. The Bears are the polar opposite of the Vikings in special teams competence.

Colts -8.5, I would never give that many, especially to a team that isn't at the absolute bottom of the league if it wasn't for the Colts

Saints -4.5 Tough call, the Saints are always overrated, but the Chiefs are awful. The Saints are at least competent. I'll go with the giant DVOA and Efficiency Rating gap.

Ravens +6.5  The Ravens have covered every week since the Colts stomped them week 6. They are a very good team, that had a bad game against a very good team having a great day.

Bucs -3.5  a tough one. FO and Advanced NFL stats confirm my opinion that the Bucs are good, but not great and the Vikings are mediocre. I'll take the Bucs, but this one I won't feel bad about losing or great about winning.

Rams +5.5  The Niners showed some life, but so have the Rams at times, I just can't give that many points to such a bad team.

Arizona -2.5 really? One bad game (which they won) and they aren't expected to crush the terrible Seahawks.

Titans -2.5 This line looks so horribly wrong. If linemakers were handing out free money like it looks here they'd go out of business, but I can't force myself to not try to grab it.

Steelers -3.5  The Steelers are a very good team, the Chargers were suppose to be one.

Redskins +1.5  The Cowboys recent struggles run deeper than just not having Tony Romo.

Bills -4.5   oh yeah, lets see Brady Quinn do that against a mediocre defense.


Straight up winners: Pats, Falcons, Panthers, Eagles, Saints, Giants, Bucs, Dolphins, Bears, Colts, Niners, Cards, Titans, Steelers, Redskins, Bills.
