Weekly upsets picks

Recommended Posts

Always a good thread to have.  I'm going with a pair of NFC east games.  Giants over Titans, Jags over Commies

The wife is in a Survival League and is asking me who she should pick.

Ugh.

I was thinking of helping her by picking an upset. Cards over the Chiefs?

Ravens are a team you want to save for later because they are so dependable against teams they should beat.  Denver could be erratic (maybe even under .500) and stuck with a tough schedule but they will annihilate Seattle.

People always do this in survivor pools.  You take the sure thing every week and let other people make mistakes.

I stay away from division games if I can, those can always go either way

I think Seattle will have the worst record this season.

I would go with Carolina Panthers, the hatred that Baker Mayfield has for the Cleveland Browns makes me think its a lock.

I've been bounced from survivor pools so many times by division games. Even the saddest dogs like Houston steal wins from their division opponents.

yeah but if you got two teams that are equally sure things, you save one for later.  That's the case here.  You can pretty much just follow Seattle around all year and slay half your survivor picks.  I expect Denver to win by more than Baltimore.

Yup. Geno Smith behind one of the worst OLines in the league forced into shootouts by an abysmal pass D.  Throw in a hot mad Wilson looking for vengeance this is the blow out of the week.

I wouldn't touch that game in a bet much less survivor.  Browns have got plenty of talent on that roster and Brissett is no chump.  Should be a nail biter.

I'm hoping Atlanta starts off the season by launching the saints to an 0-16 season......😀

And with the first pick in the 2023 NFL draft, the philadelphia eagles are on the clock......

She went with the Titans over the Giants.

And the funny thing is she was a Giants fan. Then she started dating me and many years later, she is now an Eagles fan. 😎

Well i don't actually play survivor and I guess I shouldn't start...

 

Unbelievable what happened last night.  It was like Denver watched Cincy's mistake riddled mess for the ages and said 'hold my Coors".  It was like they watched the Cincy game and used it as film study.  Even before the two fumbles at the 1 yd line and the WTF sequence for the 64yd miss, the defense decided to not show up in 1st half.  GENO frickin' SMITH and that horrible OLine looked like juggernauts against one of the most loaded D's in the league.

 

Good Grief.  Football man, football.  Thank God Im not a betting man cuz I would have laid the house, the car, my daughter's dog and my own virgin arsehole on Denver last night.

Dunno about that. I was in two pools and was eliminated in both after picking San Francisco and Denver.

Week 1 is always the hardest, the most unexpected circumstances seem to occur. Not to mention a few teams surprise people with how much they've improved or fallen since the offseason.
