Week eleven in the NFL gets underway tonight. Time sure flies, don't it?
Our pickers in our Annual NFL Pickoff VS the Spread, Colin, John Reidy, Our Buddy Snyder and Producer Scott Stafford continue to slug it out in what remains a relatively close contest. Snyder currently holds a the lead, as he has for three weeks now. It's unlikely that any of our pickers will create any separation this week, as all four picked this week's games pretty similarly.
This week we welcome Woody Roseland, a future guest on the South Stands Denver Fancast, as our guest picker. Woody is some kind of badass, and amputee, a helluva comedian, a cancer activist and a force for good in our Community. Most of us first got to know Woody when he played catch with Jeremy Guthrie. You can visit Woody's web site RIGHT FRIGGIN' HERE.
Our picks are "after the jump" (we stole that term from Deadspin)
Eleven weeks into the NFL season Colin and Reidy are once again tied in their annual NFL pickoff VS the spread. Colin entered the week up by two picks but Reidy gained ground. He went 8-4-2 on the week to Colin's 6-6-2. The fellahs share a record of 76-74-5 on the season.
What this exercise demonstrates is that it's really hard to make a living betting the NFL. Even sports experts like the fellahs find themselves jammed up more often than not.
