EB's Weekly Picks Page - 2012
« on: August 06, 2012, 05:16:05 AM »
Here we go folks... Welcome to the 4th year of EB's pick em's...

Can we believe its already time for another great football season????  I do not do the pre-season, so lets get ready for the regular season... GO PACKERS!!!

Now, for my disclaimer:   i am just a regular guy who likes football, and am in no way claiming to be an expert at picking winners... Therefore, if you gamble and lose money, based off my stupid picks, thats your fault & I hold no liability..... On the other hand, If you gamble and win money based off my now brilliant picks my nominal cut is 40%.   


NGS Career Pick-em Stats:
2009 Regular Season:  173-83 (.676)
2009 Playoffs:  3-8 (.273)

2010 Regular Season: 147-108 (.576)
2010 Playoffs:  7-4 (.636).   

2011 Regular Season: 168-89 (.654)
2011 Playoffs:  5-6 (.455).   


My combined record:
Regular Season: 488-280 (.640)
Playoffs:  15-18 (.455).

Not a bad record Russ..I look forward to dropping by and leaving my 2 cents on the ones I differ on.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

As always bud, your viewpoints are always welcome!!!

I am a homer when the Packers are in the playoffs... lol   In 2009, i never picked the Aints to win a game... and they won 4... lol

Notice in 2010 (when the Packers won it all), i had a winning percentage...

In 2011, I think i only picked the Giants to win the superbowl... not the other 3 games... lol

Are we still talking about football or is Bond talking about the all you can eat buffet, or last call at the bar and Big Sweaty Sally?  487 487


Went out last night and got really wasted. 
I woke up in the middle of the night next to some chick who was snoring and farting, so I knew I made it home OK.

Well folks, here we go for week 1.   I am a little late as I missed Weds games, but, I would have picked the Giants anyways, so no one will say that I "cheated" on that game, since they lost anyaways.... lol

So, Here we go...


WEDS:

NY Giants


SUN:

There are always six to seven games on the 1 p.m. slate on flat screen televisions around the pub regardless of week. And then there’s the game that the bartender just won’t put on. “Nah,” will be the response when you ask for it. It’s the game that’s so bad, the one that has such little national appeal, that it will literally cause customers to leave the establishment. That game this week? This one.
Minnesota over Jacksonville

Now, for the rest of the games....   

Atlanta over Kansas City
Philadelphia over Cleveland
New Orleans over Washington
Detroit over St. Louis
New England over Tennessee
Houston over Miami
NY Jets over Buffalo
Chicago over Indianapolis
Tampa Bay over Carolina
GREEN BAY over San Fransisco
Pittsburgh over Denver

MON:


Baltimore over Cincinnati
San Diego over Oakland

Not Bad... Thru Sundays games, I am 9-4 (.692) so far....

Bringing me to a career record of 497-284  (.636)  If I win BOTH MNF games, Green Bay should give me my 500th win on Thurs night... How fitting!!!

EB,

Last year there was 256 regular season games played. In the cbs and Yahoo Pick-ems I played in and I was 174-82 in all of them ..I looked online and found that 172 favorites won last year. (straight up, not using the points spread to determine the winner)

My percentage was .679

The favorites percentage was .671

This info is just from last year (2011) ..so I can't really comment on what you've done here on NGS in the 3 prior years other than it seems Purty Good!

Best of Luck this year! :)
