Best Bets: Week 4

Where do I start? Last week turned into a disaster – 0-3 with two heartbreakers.

I’ve re-watched the Jaguars game and I still don’t know how Jacksonville managed to throw that one away. Then we get to the Chargers game. All they had to do was keep them out of the end zone. A field goal is fine; the Colts would win the game but we still win with the points. But no, T.Y. Hilton scored a 63-yard touchdown with 1:17 left on the clock to put an end to a terrible week of picks. But I’m over that and we move on to this week.

The Gridiron Gentlemen’s Super Fun Prediction League: Week 4

Week 3 was something of a down week for our predictions of which Dave predicted the most wins with 10. I had a particularly poor week with only 6 wins, thanks in part to some risky predictions (which will never happen again, looking in your direction San Francisco). Despite a great week from Dave, James still tops the table:

James: 32 – 16

Dave: 31 – 17

Simon: 28 – 20

Duncan: 30 – 18

Dan: 27 – 21

Week 4 brings with it a number of games that could tell us something about what a number of teams are, as well as a game in London and the AFC South happily playing itself guaranteeing 2 wins in the worst division in the sport. Let’s take a look.

The Gridiron Gentlemen’s Super Fun Prediction League: Week 3

Week 2 hit a little like a slap in the face for a couple of teams (I’m looking in your direction Oakland, Jacksonville and Tampa Bay) as the league started it’s long road to the middle. Despite a couple of more interesting picks though we did okay with the predictions and it’s still all pretty tight, with James out in front.

James: 23 – 9

Dave: 21 – 11

Simon: 20 – 12

Duncan: 21 – 11

Dan: 21 – 11

Anyway let’s take a look at week 3 starting with an apology from most of us to Dark Lord Belichick.
