The Winning Stats Predictor last week decided to take the last two games off for the weekend, predicting close games from the underdogs. As you know, neither the Bears or Panthers were in the game past the halfway point of the first quarter, so it was a lost cause and a 6-7 weekend Against the Spread, bringing our season total to 81-65-1, or 55.4%. In past years, this is the point in the season where we have enough data for it to be relevant and more correct, so we see a slight up-tick in record. Hopefully it continues and we keep up the nice record.
Picking games Straight Up went just 8-5, bringing that record to 94-52-1, or 64.3%. This week started out well for picking the winner, as it took the Dolphins, but the Bills decided it was too much work to actually try and score a touchdown at any point in the game, so we lost Against the Spread. Time to pick it up Sunday/Monday.
Picks for Week 11:
SuperContest was 2-3 last week, bringing us to 28-22. What was working early on in the season is now regressing back to its normal hit rate, so have to be mindful and pick the right plays here. Did nail the Jets though last week.
- Chiefs -1.5 vs. Seahawks
- Broncos -9.5 at Rams
- Cardinals -2.5 vs. Lions
- Patriots +3 at Colts
- Titans +6 vs. Steelers
Survivor Pick: It took until the 4th quarter, but the Cardinals got home for us. This week I could take the Broncos, but I'm going to hold out a bit longer on them. I'm going to go with the Saints hosting the Bengals. The Saints hadn't lost a home game since 2012 until last week, so I can't imagine they'll lose two in a row. I'd really like Cincinnati to win for other reasons, but I just can't see it happening Sunday.
49ers, Colts, Steelers, Chargers, Titans, Bills, Chiefs, Bengals, Cardinals
