Made my picks. Hoping to get my picks in every week on time for a change, so I don't miss out a week or three.

I'm generally lousy picking against the spread, but I'll give it a shot.

Glad you posted that. I made my picks Monday, but didn't realize they were vs. the spread. :confused3
Now I have time to fix them.

I picked NO thinking that it would be a better game. I think Rodgers' former mustache had something to do with their ability right now.

So far, I evened out with games on the Spread, so that's good. Didn't expect Colts to look THAT bad without Peyton though. Congrats to some good picks by folks.

You, too!

What do you guys think about the spread in the picks? I could easily eliminate that factor, but not sure it's fair after 2 weeks. Thoughts?

I like the spread, but I'm pretty indifferent about whether it stays or goes.

Sorry Doc. I must not have seen this thread and have been putting my comments in the fantasy thread. I got 2nd in this last year and am #1 (right now). Of course, if I actually bet these in Vegas, I would have lost my house by now. ALso, I guess that by posting this, I won't get any wins today.

And, I like picking against the spread. It makes it more challenging. Everyone knows Green Bay will win, but to cover the spread makes it more difficult.

First GB series. TB free rusher to block the punt. Punter loses the ball twice but manages to get a 1st down. Wow!

AirGoofy
11-20-2011, 03:13 PM
Picked winners who didn't cover the spread. Boo. :sad2:

AirGoofy
11-20-2011, 09:36 PM
Cowboys and Packers can't cover. Why is it when the Eagles play, they are either terrific or stink. Either way, I can't pick it right either way. I'm sure Giants will win the game at the last second but just not enough to cover.

I thought the games and spread were difficult this week. Anyone else?

AirGoofy
11-30-2011, 08:56 PM
Anyone else on here? 20 point spread for NE? Denver underdog my 1 at MIN. What is going on with these spreads?

patkingpin

I thought that too about the spreads, seemed very difficult this week to chose them with any accuracy. I mean, how can you pick against a 20 point spreads even if it is the Pats vs. the Colts.

-Maelstrom Kingpins.

I lost last night. I haven't picked Eagles game well. I thought Pittsburgh would cover against KC last week, but they didn't. I guess cold weather was neutralizer there. Patriots have put up a bunch of points. Colts are going with another QB, and let's face it, they have quit this season. But, 20 points?

AirGoofy

OK, so I am watching Denver because I did pick them and I do have McGahee in Fantasy league, but the officiating in that game is terrible. The ground cannot cause a fumble unless you are a Bronco, and throwing a DB to the ground 10 yards past the line of scrimmage is not an offensive penalty. Wow! Only one was worth 7 points.

I am watching NE and the Colts to see is NE can cover the 20 point spread. A 21 point difference is better than watching a game where the officials are deciding the game.

patkingpin
12-04-2011, 03:12 PM
Looks like the 20 point spread was too much to overcome.
On a brighter note for you, I didn't do well at all in the early games. I think you might have pulled back ahead of me for the season.

Tebow overcomes the officiating. I should have predicted Bellicheck would tank the game in the 4th quarter. He tends to not follow any rules.

It looks like there was a 3-way tie at the top with a 5 game lead. With a good week, there are quite a few in the running. There are 4 more weeks to get position for the playoff run.

AirGoofy
12-11-2011, 04:04 PM
So, I picked Houston to win and Colts to cover the spread, but this AM, I switched my picks for the Jets NOT to cover the spread and for Atlanta TO cover against the Panthers. Pittsburgh did not cover. NE did not cover. I gave up on on the Eagles, so of course they have a great game. Ten and Min are a score of away from covering.

AirGoofy, good job this week, you took a 2 game lead. Still some time left to make it back. What a year it has been so far though!

Thanks. There are still some good weeks to go with a lot of teams trying to make the playoffs or improve their positions, and now others firing head coaches. It's hard to predict how a team will respond - to do they play for their new, interim head coach and try out for next year? Or, do they tank it as the season is over?

Very true. These are the tricky weeks. Some games seem so straight forward, but then that is why they play the games!
Either way, I am excited for the final stretch, I think it will be close right to the end.

Lots of trap games, like the Pats vs Denver. Brady has not played well at Denver, but they score so many points. But, neither Brady nor Tebow covered spread last week.

Only 4 right today. I actually had picked Indy (not to win, but to lose by less than spread) but changed it to TN. Frustrating day thus far.

Very frustrating day. Worst part is that I should have went with my gut. Instead I chickened out on some games (Had Indy winning outright in my other pool), ugh.

I haven't looked yet but know it was a bad day for me. Now, I'm questioning my pick tonite.

After tonite's game, week 17 provides lots of opportunities as starters will be resting as most of playoff seeding is done. Who know what 3rd string RB will do. Good luck everyone.

Ahhh, not a time for a big slip for me. Hoping I can make it back up this week and get back there.

I have a personal goal in the fantasy football pickem league from the fantasy football site. I missed a week of picks when I was in Disney and I have clawed my way back from that. I want to finish third now!

I think most struggled week 1, but to come back from a week with no picks in really good. I confess that I took my netbook to WDW for my trip, but could have made my picks on my phone. Good luck.

That was the MFL pickem league. The weighted picks have made it so I could claw back. I had my Iphone in Disney, but I couldn't get any service at Coronado so I didn't get to make my picks. When I did have service, the picks weren't on my mind. Such is the Disney life.
Ironically I was able to make the Yahoo picks two weeks in advance before I left so I didn't suffer in that league.

I somehow missed the pick em games in MFL. I'll be sure to get that one next year. I have done well 2 years in a row against the spread on Yahoo. I was considering a move to Vegas, although with money on the line, my picks wouldn't go thru.

For the MFL pickem, I am pretty sure you can pick games any week, it is ok that you didn't do it from the beginning. Might be a good idea to do this week's picks on there so you can get an idea of the system that is used. It is kind of confusing the first time you do it and it will prep you for next season.

I'll just start it next year. Too late for me. But, I like the idea of the points bet on each game. There are some games that I figured as locks and others that were much more difficult, especially with the spread.

No system, just analysis and luck. But, 1st this year and 2nd last year so I did something right. But, between phone, computer, car radio - sports is always on. I'm leaving instructions for the sports center jingle to be played at my funeral. DW said no for it at wedding.
