I have picked the Chiefs all three weeks -and once as a confidence pick - and they haven't covered the spread once. What a disaster.

I started out in 16th place, fell to 17th and now to 18th. So, um, . . . I am really stinking up the contest. I can't seem to get the hang of what is going on this season.

Even FastEddie, the so-called AI bot, is ahead of me. Mission just went 0-6 and yet he is still ahead of me. AZDuffman started out by announcing that he would be terrible at this -and he is ahead of me. I'm just an epic fail.

    Well, you are still ahead of me, if that makes you feel any better! I'm seriously considering rolling dice to determine my picks from here on in.

    It's still very early. Long season ahead. No reason to get worried yet at all. Everyone is still fine.

    Well I appreciate the encouragement.

    NOTICE:

    Reminders will go out this evening, though there aren't very many to send.

    Aside from that, FastEddie has been Nuked on the grounds of being Buzzpaff. Given that he has already started playing the game, and I know he will honor his bets, he will have the option to send his picks via E-Mail for the rest of this year's game. I also didn't know he was Buzz at the time that he started playing.

    Per the Rules of the Game, I have PM'ed him an E-Mail address to which he can send his Picks. Though Nuked, he is able to receive PM's, just not send them.

    Also:

    Here's another article about Tom Brady and the upcoming Sunday Night Football Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New England Patriots matchup:

    https://wizardofvegas.com/articles/brady-is-still-the-system/

    I usually wouldn't write an article about a specific game, but some comments made by Bill Belichick cranked up an already great narrative such that I didn't have a choice! Since the article is about a specific game, I had to go out on a limb and offer a prediction that I hope is right.

    Please excuse the lack of images, but the article had to be published in a hurry, so there was no notice for our publishing staff to get images ready. They will be added within the next 1-3 days.

    I hope everyone enjoys the article and will offer comments either in this thread or the comment section. Go Bucs!

    Zimbo vs the Field
    Our current leader, JohnZimbo, has picked the 49ers as his Confidence Pick.

    The rest of the contestants have ZERO picks on the 49ers and have picked their opponent, the Seahawks, 11 times.

    Current Week 4 Results after Sunday 10/3/21:
    Regular Picks: 37-42
    Confidence Picks: 8-9

    Results if the Chargers cover tonight:
    Regular Picks: 37-50
    Confidence Picks: 8-10

    Results if the Raiders cover tonight:
    Regular Picks: 45-42
    Confidence Picks: 9-9

    Nine people are on the Raiders, with one of them being a Confidence Pick.
    (Zero picks for the Chargers.)

    Obviously, for those of us who didn't select the Raiders, we are really rooting for Los Angeles to cover!

    The Rams vs Seahawks is a Thursday night game and is not available.
    The Jets vs Falcons is an early Sunday game so if you are picking from them be sure to have your picks in before kickoff.

    My initial PM to Mission had me selecting the Rams. I am sending a new PM with legal picks. I assume they will be accepted.

    Very good catch on this and thanks for pointing it out.

    I hadn't noticed this myself. (Isn't usually a bit later in the season, that we have an overseas game?)

    This game is being played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and yes, it starts at 6:30 am here on the West Coast.

    I teased the Rams from -2.5 to +3.5 and parlayed it with Tampa Bay Rays moneyline tonight.

    Got that parlay for +141 at my book.

    Good luck. I think I would have rather teased Seattle to +8.5. Get the 3 and the 7.
    The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

    I teased the Rams from -2.5 to +3.5 and parlayed it with Tampa Bay Rays moneyline tonight.

    Got that parlay for +141 at my book.

    Fingers croased.

    Good luck. I think I would have rather teased Seattle to +8.5. Get the 3 and the 7.

    I feel like the Rams winning in a blowout is more likely than Seattle winning by more than 3. Only reason I went this way.

    NOTES:

    1.) There were a few sets of picks that came in after the early game kicked off, but none were for the early game. In fact, I only paid special attention based on PM timestamp and opened those separately, so I don't know that anyone even picked the early game.

    2.) We should make an effort to get Picks in before the deadline. We had three late sets of Picks this week that I chose to accept as Picks had not yet been posted, so Commissioner's decision. However, I usually endeavor to get the Picks posted as close to 10:00a.m. EST as possible; I just had something going on this morning.

    That said, I'm going to make it a point to have everything ready to post within seconds of 10:00a.m. next week, so make your picks the day before if you have to!

    I will also admit that the deadline is somewhat arbitrary. The main reason for it is so that I have enough of a window to be able to post the Picks before the main games kickoff. The original deadline was 12:59p.m., EST, I believe and it was changed mainly because folks (understandably) like seeing the Picks posted before games kick off.

    RideTheEdge has had a winning week each of the past five weekends.
    JW17 and Wizard have yet to have a losing week.

    I expect that there will be no payment from FastEddie. I guess its one of the drawbacks of not having an upfront payment.

    CHARGERS -2 CONFIDENCE (win)



    First, thank you to the folks working behind the scenes for all of their hard work.

    Second, I believe the Falcons covered the -3, agree? I believe that is a mistake in your results.

    Thank you!!

    Likewise, wasn't anyone who had Jets +3, including a distinguished poster/admin/founder/guru who is on my tail, also given mistaken credit for a win?

    Whoops. Good eye. Thanks.

    I entered the score wrong for that game. I gave the Jets the 27 and the Falcons the 20, instead of the other way around.

    Revised results and standings coming up.

    We don't count pushes in the scoring.

    Confidence Picks are worth two points, not one. You lost a Confidence Pick and a regular pick. That's a total of 3 losses. You won two of your regular picks. That's two wins.

    Your score for this round is 2-3.

    I expect that there will be no payment from FastEddie. I guess its one of the drawbacks of not having an upfront payment.

    I'd be surprised if he didn't pay; he'll probably send it to me at the end to give to the winner.

    Updated Perfection Bonuses:

    Week 1: UnJon ($10)

    Week 3: JohnZimbo ($20)

    Week 6: $30 Available

    We had two 5-0 records, as well as a 4-0 record, with all failing to get the 6-0 required due to the same push!

    Not so much. JAX likes to volunteer for it because they cannot sell tickets at home. Other teams probably do as well. And don't think teams with better playoff chances do not try to get out of all the hassle of it.

    I wouldn't say the Jags can't sell tickets. Not counting last year (where attendance was way down league-wide because of Covid), their average attendance for the previous 10 years was 63,000, which is about 94% capacity of the stadium.

    The thing is, the revenue generated by the London game far outpaces even a sellout home game for the Jags. I would say that this is true for all teams in a so-called "small market**."

    I hate the term "small market." It is really just a euphemism for "poor" or "cheap," and has little to do with geographic location. Case in point, the Oakland A's are always referred to as "small market," but the Giants are not , even though they share the same market!

    I wouldn't call Oakland a small market either. Plus, there is so much money in the East Bay. Stupid to leave that market.
