These picks will win because I think they are wrong. To explain to you the method by which I will be arriving at these winning Week 16 NFL picks, you must first know a small bit about me.
I am among the world's most accurate fantasy football experts as measured by FantasyPros.com, an independent third-party evaluator. I have been through almost two years of being tracked. My weekly spreadsheets are comical.
Any normal person would think I was a lunatic with one glance at the two monitors I have positioned next to one another in order to see all of my inputs.
Still, I always seem to lose when I bet money on actual NFL games. It seems like Las Vegas is always one step ahead of me. It's like they know when a last minute, cover-blowing, meaningless safety is set to occur in garbage time.
I have devised a whole new winning strategy. If it works, I will give credit to George Costanza, my inspiration for this winning system:
I'm going to tell you why I like one team, but I am going to suggest that you bet on the other team. I want you to fade me.
Like Jerry says, "If every instinct that you have is wrong, the opposite... would have to be right."
