It’s International Series time again so join us for a look at all the upcoming games.
We got a tie last week!!! The way it's gone that feels like a win. Zero wins, eight losses and one fantastic tie over the past three weeks. We're improving. The lawyers have been in touch and told me I can't continue to use the name best bets for this article each week with my current performance. I'm ignoring them though. If there's one other person who's influenced me in that way of thinking, someone who's a maverick, who does that to the system, it's lan Botham.
I’m afraid I’m a little strapped for time, so this will be brief. Anyway heading into week 5, James and Dave have the lead as you can see….
A lot of fun games in week 5, including a ton of statement games.
Well this is getting silly now. 0-3 again. That’s hard to do. Sort of impressive if you think about it. 0-6 on what is essentially a 50/50 shot.
The Chargers did it again. 13 point lead with less than five minutes to go and they manage to blow it. Even better than against the Colts. Finally pick against the Jaguars and they finally manage not to blow a game. And the Browns probably should have won the game, let alone getting 7.5 points.
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.
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.
