Take a good look at this week’s slate of games and you’ll notice a few things. Some big spreads. Some tough selections. And so, unsurprisingly, we here at Pick It and Stick It have the equivalent of a hung jury, which is to say we are more divided on this week’s selections than we have been on perhaps any other this year.
That just can’t be good.
Also, in the interest of full disclosure, we’ve been a little inconsistent of late, though we rallied in Week 8 to salvage a 7-8 performance that kept us a comfortable margin over .500 for the season. In theory, things should be getting easier as we get deeper into the schedule and have a better read on the strengths and weaknesses of every team, but the shuffling of bodies at the trading deadline coupled with some whopper point spreads make this a challenging week.
Also, just so everyone understands how we operate, let me make this clear. I email the games and lines to Felger and Murray each week. They then return their selections separately (and privately) via email. I make mine before I look at theirs and we go from there. No politicking allowed.
So how do I feel about this week’s picks?
Just being honest.
Last week : 7-8.
Season to date: 64-56-3.
