Week 1 WILDLY INACCURATE NFL Pick Results


MAN, did my picks SUCK last week!  But that shouldn’t come as a surprise, after all these are the WILDLY INACCURATE picks.  Gotta live up to, or more accurately down to that name, I guess.

Let’s look at that inaccuracy, shall we?  In the order of the picks.

No pick for the Packers/ Saints game.  Oops.

1) Falcons @ Bears;  My pick: Take the Falcons(+3) and the Over (40½.)  Final score: Falcons 27, Bears 17.  Actual score: Bears 30, Falcons 12. Bears and the over was the right pick.  LOSE on the over under/LOSE on the pick against the spread.

If you think you are noticing a trend here, you would be correct… which is more than I was capable of being.  To continue…

7 wins, 8 losses as far as O/U goes.  7 wins, 7 losses, 1 push w/ picks.

___________________________________________

Frankly I thought I did much worse than that.    But some of those losses were just ridiculously bad.

I was so wrong on the Ravens game, and the Bears game, and the Browns game, and the Colts game,  that it cancels out the good picks I had with the Niners and the Patriots.  The Chiefs wasn’t a good pick, despite being a win/win.  I still had the Chiefs winning by 3 but losing ATS. The score disparity was HUGE.  That win feels like a loss, and should.  Ya, I won seven games, but it feels like I lost 100 this week.

But you tell me that YOU seriously expected the Steelers to turn the ball over 7 times.  Tell me YOU expected Ryan Fitzpatrick to toss 4 TD’s, have a qb rating of 133, and for the bills to outgain the AFC west defending champs by 150 yards.  I don’t know that anyone expected the Colts to walk over the Texans, but I don’t think anyone expected the Colts to get only 1 TD either.

My personal favorite goof was me saying that Arian Foster would run over the Colts.  He didn’t even play.  JOY!
