The bad news? Last week didn't go so well for me in the picks department. Jacksonville's late touchdown cost me a win, as did several dropped touchdown passes by Seattle's receivers. The Jets scored 48 more points than I thought they would, and I wish I could say Monday night was the first time I'd ever lost money because of a long snapper.
Alas, life goes on.
The good news is that as badly as Week 1 went for me, it went just as badly for everyone else. Nobody picked Cleveland, Detroit or Washington to cover. It was a great week to run a casino.
Whether this is just my justification for a bad week or a sign that I really just don't know football is irrelevant. I'm going to keep pounding away at these lines and, assuming you have any faith in me, you'll keep winning (or, more likely, losing) money thanks to this column.
We're coming back stronger than ever in Week 2. This is going to be a 12-4 week. I just have a feeling. Here are my Week 2 picks against the spread.
Record For the Season: 6-10
