Spread ‘Em: Week 17 NFL Picks

Posted by Andrew Zercie on January 1, 2010

My New Year’s resolution is to provide better picks. I don’t expect them to pan out, just like some of my resolutions of years past, such as:

–lose weight

–exercise more

–write more

–complain less

–be a better husband/father/son/friend/professional

In the end, I’ve wound up being the same person year after year despite the empty promises I’ve made to myself. I expect the promise about better picks against the spread to also be an empty one. Without further ado…

Posted by Andrew Zercie on December 24, 2009

It being a holiday weekend for many, including myself, the picks for this week will be brief.

Spread ‘Em: The Rest of the Week 15 NFL Picks

Posted by Andrew Zercie on December 18, 2009

Aaron Rodgers Leading a Sleeper Super Bowl Contender?

Like a playoff contender fading down the stretch, my picks have faltered as the regular season winds down. Following a horrid 4-12 week, and a loss on Thursday night (see my mistake here: https://masterprocrastinator.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/week-15-thursday-night-pick/), I’m now just 108-101 as week 15 begins.

My advice would be to see who I’ve picked, and go with the opposite team. I haven’t been on the money in a while, and I certainly wouldn’t want anyone out there losing cash they probably need to use on presents this holiday season. Without further ado, here are my selections for this week.

Spread ‘Em: Week 14 NFL Picks

Posted by Andrew Zercie on December 11, 2009

Can the Colts get to 13-0?

There are many storylines to follow as the season winds down. Will the Saints and Colts both finish undefeated? Can the Steelers overcome their recent losing streak, catch a few breaks, and reach the playoffs? Will Chris Johnson reach the 2,000-yard plateau? Who will emerge as the league’s MVP in what promises to be a tight race?

If you’re a faithful reader you already know this, but all picks are for entertainment purposes only. As evidenced by my run of losing weeks lately, if you’re betting with me, you’re not going to do well financially.

Hoping to mitigate the damage caused by the Steelers’ loss to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night, here’s the remainder of my week 14 picks against the spread:

The Ledger: NFL Week 13 Review and Steelers-Browns Pick

Posted by Andrew Zercie on December 9, 2009

Mike Vick turned the boos to cheers in Atlanta last week.

As the season winds down, unpredictability seems to be on the rise in the NFL.

As a result, it was another losing week for me, as the picks were 7-9 against the spread, bringing my overall record to 104-88 on the season. While the record is still far above .500, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve had 10 or more correct picks.

What follows is a review of the week 13 games, along with my pick for the Thursday night game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns.

Spread ‘Em: Week 12 NFL Picks

Posted by Andrew Zercie on November 27, 2009

Brady and the Pats have their hands full this week.

Off to a solid 2-1 start for week 12, thanks to the Packers and Broncos, I’m hoping to see that success continue into the rest of the weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve scored a big week I must admit. Following an 8-8 week 11 showing, and the 2-1 start to this week, my record on the season is now 93-70, which isn’t bad. However, after starting off hot, I’ve essentially been a 50-50 bettor in the last month or so.

For those who might be interested, here’s my picks for Thursday’s games:

As always, remember the picks are for entertainment purposes only. Here’s the remainder of week 12 now:

Shortened Spread ‘Em for Week 11

Posted by Andrew Zercie on November 22, 2009

Can Johnson Lead Titans to 4th in a row?

It’s been a crazy week for me. The time needed to write 4,000 words a week on football didn’t exist, unfortunately. I hope to make it up in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, with the three games on Turkey Day.

After going 9-6 in week 10, I picked incorrectly on Thursday, as seen here:

https://masterprocrastinator.wordpress.com/2009/11/19/nothing-could-be-finer/

On the season, including missing on Thursday, I’m 83-62 and looking ahead to the rest of the week 11 games. Without further ado…

Spread ‘Em: NFL Week Ten Picks

Posted by Andrew Zercie on November 13, 2009

Holmes

Holmes and the Steelers have "that look" again.

With the baseball season over with, the NFL finally takes center stage in week 10.

This week’s slate of games features some potential great matchups, including the annual tilt between Peyton Manning’s Colts and Tom Brady’s Patriots.

Following two straight losing weeks, I’m now 74-55 on the season and hoping to bounce back with a slew of winners. I’ve already nailed one game this week (thanks, Jay Cutler). Hopefully, it’s a sign of things to come.

Remember that all picks are for entertainment purposes only. I apologize if you’re not entertained, but don’t ask for a refund.

I base my picks on flawed logic, personal opinion, age-old gambling trends, and matchups. If you’re looking for high-end analysis and haven’t found it elsewhere by now…I can’t help you.

Here now are the week ten picks, with the home team in bold.

Spread ‘Em: Week Nine NFL Picks

Posted by Andrew Zercie on November 6, 2009

Cedric Benson: MVP candidate?

As the NFL begins its second half, parity has been thrown out the window.

It seems that, week in and week out, there are clear-cut favorites and underdogs in more than half of the games played. There are few bizzare point spreads on a weekly basis.

Outside of the 6-1 Denver Broncos being underdogs every week (including this one), there are very few head-scratching favorites and underdogs. Also, the double-digit favorites are easier to pick because the underdogs are, for the most part, so overwhelmingly bad.

At the halfway point of the season, following a brutal 5-8 showing in week eight, I’m 20 games over .500 thus far (68-48), and hoping to keep making the right picks down the stretch.

Despite how well I’ve done so far, remember that all picks are for entertainment purposes only. I’m not perfect. I never will be.

If you’re a faithful reader, you know by now that I base my picks on flawed logic, personal opinion, age-old gambling trends, and matchups. If you’re looking for high-end analysis…well…I’d suggest John Clayton of ESPN, but he picked Denver to go 3-13, or something like that, so I don’t know if mainstream media analysis is the best option.

Here now are the Week Nine picks, with the home team in bold .

The Ledger: NFL Week Eight Picks Review

Posted by Andrew Zercie on November 4, 2009

donovanmcnabb

McNabb and Eagles are soaring.

The Ledger returns following week eight, a week that was, for me anyway, rather unsuccessful compared to the rest of the 2009 season.

I went 5-8 on the week, recording my worst week of picks against the spread all season long. The poor showing put a dent into my solid overall record, which now stands at 68-48. I’m hoping to bounce back in week nine. First though, a look back at the games I picked correctly, and the games I missed horribly on.  Read the rest of this entry »
