The Bills O/U is 54. The next highest O/U is 48.5!

I need a decent week (4-2) to get back to being Mr. Average.

My lines already have Bills as 3 point faves, not 2.5. Bills have dominated Tua in their meetings. Even the n the Bills loss last year the Bills dominated the game, outgaining Miami by around 300 yards.

Think how bad the Bears must be…. 3.5 point home underdogs to a team that gave up 70 last week…..

I know I was 4-1 last week but I feel like my picking the under in that Dolphins point fest should count as more than one loss!

This update is to document the following:

Picks Received: 11

Reminders Sent: 13 (I am still myself. Usually.)

That makes 25. Everything checks out. I haven't decided which awful Picks I want to make this time. I haven't really put any thought into my Picks, so I think I am going to continue with that strategy and try to save myself $75. LOL

Steelers AND Raiders because I don’t think I’ve ever been right about a Steelers or Raiders game. Meta strategy.

The Picks will likely be up before noon EST. Absolutely before 13:00, of course.

Lots of love for the Seahawks on MNF and for the Bengals and Eagles.

The picks on Dolphins vs Bills are highly divided; there will be picks blood on the floor no matter who wins.

Five picks ATS on Raiders v Chargers, despite all the injuries including late announcement on Garropolo. Should be interesting to see what the outcome is.

Formatting mistakes: Please Correct these on future weeks.

When sending picks to Mission this week these errors were made and I needed to search them out and correct by hand.

1. Names of teams did not start with an uppercase letter: nunbeater (all picks); JohnnyQ (Giants as giants)

2. Jets were written as JETS: JohnnyQ

3. Buccaneers was written as Bucs: Rainman

Sorry to be so nit-picky; but it would help me if you can clean this up in the future.

Sounds good. I should also accept some level of responsibility, particularly for 'Bucs' as I should be checking that myself. In the case of Ed's program, it wasn't concerned with letter cases, but I will keep in mind this one is and do my job better.

Let me know if there are any errors in this table.

Not at all! Looks great! It is remarkably close to (well a bit under) the bullseye of what one should expect from it!

Average win% = 42.54%, so really not TOO very hugely worse than the theoretical outcome of 25 blind monkeys flipping coins.

And, toward the ends of the somewhat asymmetrical bell curve, 5 of the 25 (20% of participants) have over a 60% win rate, while somehow 8 of 25 (32% of the assembled WoV brain trust) are impressively managing to win fewer than 40% of their expertly deduced selections among outcomes that are designed to be inherently 50/50 propositions. So I'd say arguably it's not all THAT much lower skewed of a distribution curve than than a sports tout outfit employing a hypothetical herd of drunk hamsters running loose on a sportsbook's keyboard, to randomly and inevitably show up with several "hot, hot, hot, proven winners setting the world on fire with their brilliance!"

And so far, if one has the continued indulgence of a book or two raking-off a reasonably thin juice percentage, making flat bets that simply fade each and every pick equally could actually turn a small profit to date! If maintained (or dare I hope even sucking worse?) to year-end, potentially enough to actually buy something interesting! Remarkably accomplishing something that no reputable academic study, among the many conducted on this eternally popular topic in worldwide grad-school geekdom, has ever been able to find existing with any lasting significant consistent extent among those identifying themselves as successful "professional sports bettors."

So please carry on, exactly as y'all are. Sincerely. Because now you can be comforted with the knowledge that DrawingDead will be quietly appreciating all your collective efforts, and is looking forward to not so quietly enjoying the accumulated end of season (upside down) results in the Champagne Room of a local brass pole performance art establishment when it's time to cash out. And I know how that will warm a few of your hearts, or something like that, on a frigid winter night when this year's episode of the superhyped made for TV head bashing festival is officially done.

Picking the NFL games has always been a humbling experience. I'm just slightly below 0.500 for the first 4 weeks.. So a blind monkey would be an upgrade - a notion that my wife would probably agree with.

Sorry !

And thanks for helping with the game this year.

Usually I cut/paste my picks straight from the original post, deleting all the games I don’t want. But I don’t know how to do that on my IPhone while I am traveling. I will type in my picks more carefully from now on.

Thanks, Gordon!

I tremble to think what Drawing Dead would think of our aggregate % wins/losses, and the extraordinarily erudite ways would post cleverly about it, such that you could never be sure we are being insulted except it’s clear he’s trying to be insulting.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Formatting mistakes: Please Correct these on future weeks.

When sending picks to Mission this week these errors were made and I needed to search them out and correct by hand.

1. Names of teams did not start with an uppercase letter: nunbeater (all picks); JohnnyQ (Giants as giants)

2. Jets were written as JETS: JohnnyQ

3. Buccaneers was written as Bucs: Rainman

Sorry to be so nit-picky; but it would help me if you can clean this up in the future.

Sounds good. I should also accept some level of responsibility, particularly for 'Bucs' as I should be checking that myself. In the case of Ed's program, it wasn't concerned with letter cases, but I will keep in mind this one is and do my job better.

I’ve updated the spreadsheet so it’s no longer case sensitive (if I did it correctly). So hopefully less issues going forward. Vikings, vikings and ViKiNgS should all work fine. Vikes will not work.

Appreciate it if people put the colon after their name as I started to formula around that but it was rather annoying to fix for so I quit.

Greetings!

This is the notification that I have sent the reminders for this week's Picks:

Mission---I am still myself. That's one.

SOOPOO---Off-forum, Picks Received. That's two.

There are ten sets of Picks in my Inbox, so that's twelve.

That means I must send thirteen reminder PM's. Thirteen reminder PM's have now been sent. Excellent.

"we don't want more action on this bet"

that's what I interpret it to mean when a site has the odds at -10,000, which it went to if you want Miami on the moneyline bet at DK and betMGM.

Or you can take em and give up 20.5 pts to get -110

Well, somebody make a big bet just now, now it's -6500

gonna be changing , you can do your own keeping tabs

update: -20,000 now
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!”   She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder
