KDP's TEN FOR TEN: Wk 8 results, Wk 9 contests, pics and predictions

NOTE TO ALL: NEXT WEEK STARTS THE THURSDAY NIGHT GAMES ON NFLN- I WILL BE POSTING THE CONTEST ON TUESDAY NIGHTS, BUT THE PREDICTIONS AGAINST THE SPREAD WILL STILL BE POSTED ON THURSDAYS. DON'T WORRY, BOTH THREADS WILL HAVE PICS :)

 

Another week, another loss. The disappointing comedy of this Cowboys' season has slipped into general malaise. My NFL meter is giving way to some exciting early basketball action. And I'm 100x a bigger football than basketball fan. BTW, my NBA final four predictions are Lakers (1 seed) over Thunder (3 seed) and Boston (2 seed) over Miami (1 seed). I also have been riding Sacremento as the up and coming team of the season and they haven't disappointed, jumping out to a 3-1 start before facing the undefeated Lake show last night. Make sure you pay attention to my hometown Washington Wiz-- we won't win a ton of games, but John Wall is the absolute truth.

 

As far as the NFL goes, I tried to jump in the layup line and still went 1-2 last week. Tough times against the spread right now for me, but the season is long and the bankroll is safe... for now LOL. The Jets' got way too cute in their bye week instead of Keeping It Simple Stupid. KC letting Buffalo take them to OT, I warned myself but still didn't listen. Thats three large spread games in a row where I've known better but still went with the favorite. I'll try to follow my own rules a little more carfully.

 

PREDICTIONS:

Week 2: 2-0

Week 3: 3-1

Week 4: 1-3

Week 5: 2-2

Week 6: 4-3

Week 7: 1-6

Week 8: 1-2

Overall:14-17

 

Bills (+3)

Chicago (-3) @ Buffalo (O/U: +/- 40.5)

The Bills have covered enormous spreads two weeks in a row and I'm jumping on the bandwagon here. The game is in Toronto, games outside of the US always have a weird vibe to them. The Bills are due- then again, they could be the remedy that Jay Cutler needs to fool people into thinking he's an NFL quarterback.

Over

San DIego (-3) @ Houston (O/U: +/- 50.5)

I think the Chargers win this game and do what they normally do at this time of the year. Start to gain ground on a fraudulent AFC West leader. However, I'm most confident in the scoring for this game getting above the 50 point mark, a very risky calculation. A lot of points here though, both defenses suck, plus SD's special teams sucks, so Houston will have it's fair share of short fields.

Cardinals (+8.5)

Arizona @ Minnesota (-8.5) (O/U: +- 40)

OK, I understand that Arizona sucks, but what exactly has Minnesota accomplished to think they are winning by more than a touchdown? Arizona has lost both road games big, there is no reason to think this will be the result but I think Minnesota is on 100% self destruct mode.

HERE COMES THE CONTEST, REC'IT IF YA LIKE'IT!

Cool, so on to TEN FOR TEN. You know the game. A 10 team parlay of all straight up bets will often result in winning $10,000 for  a $10 bet. I make one of these bets every week and the contest here is to see who can be the first to go 10 for 10. Pick 10 winners of any game on the week 4 schedule. Here are the results for those that picked last week. The number in (parenthesis) after the name indicates their total score going into the week. The way things are shaping up, I'll award a prize to the first person that goes 10 for 10, AND the winner at the end of the season.

 Also, if you had picks from previous weeks that aren't included in your total, I drop anyone that didn't pick last week. Just make a reply and I'll look up your past total and put you back on the leaderboard. You'll be behind in the season race(not weekly), but who knows.

Last weeks best picker:  We had 4people that tied with 7 correct picks: BishopWest, thebigham, Benthere, cwby4lf

Overall leader: BishopWest extends his lead as he clocks in at +51. He has a three pick lead on Creasy729, a four pick lead on KDP and lxblssng and there's a large group of pickers @ +46. We are now to the halfway point of the season, keep up the good work gents!
