So It Comes Down to This

POST #    672

***note: I (Tien Mao) do not gamble for money, I merely pick games against the spread for entertainment purposes and to see how I would do if I gambled for money.***

In early November, I nealry made the football pick'em pantheon, but was foiled by the Monday Night Football game. That week vaulted me into first place in the friendly non-money wagering pool I am in. Now, in the final weekend, my lead is a measly 3 games. I have 136 games picked correctly against the spread, which is 57% of the games. 1st place comes down to 6 games - Jets/Dolphins, Bears/Chiefs, Colts/Texans, Panthers/Giants, Raiders/Chargers, Steelers/Ravens.

All games are against the spread. My picks are as follows (home teams in caps, my picks in bold):
- Jets vs. DOLPHINS (-3.5)
- Bears (+9.5) vs. CHIEFS
- Colts vs. TEXANS (-6.5)
- Panthers (+5.5) vs. GIANTS
- Raiders vs. CHARGERS (-3.5)
- Steelers (+7.5) vs. RAVENS

Wish me luck.
