NFL – Week 1 Picks, Gambling Picks

This. Is. Awful.

This. Is. Awful.

It’s Week 1!!! Rejoice my friends!!! Rejoice like this Packers fan!!! Let’s talk picks.

BUT FIRST A QUICK RAGE-FILLED MESSAGE FROM YOURS TRULY:

THANKS BIG BEN AND THE STEELERS FOR THAT MEANINGLESS LAST-SECOND TD ON THURSDAY NIGHT TO BEGIN MY GAMBLING SEASON 0-0-1. That’s right. I hammered the Patriots (-7) on Thursday Night. They won 28-21. They would’ve won 28-14 and secured me a safe cover and a 1-0 start to the season but NOOOOOOOOOOOO. For the rest of the season my record will not be a typical X-X record, it’ll be a soccer style X-X-X record. Lame.

New Rules for 2015!

I want to do something different this year than the run-of-the-mill “pick every game” scenario. I like upping the ante here. Each week I’ll pick six contests from the slate of games. I will then rank the games from six to one – six being my “lock” – one being my “upset special.” The “Six” pick – my “lock pick” – will be designated my “Money Marco Lock of the Week.” If that bet comes in – I will be awarded 6 points. If that pick DOESN’T come in I will be DEDUCTED six points from my weekly total.

My 1 pick or “Upset Special” is a wild card. This pick has to be an “upset” pick – I cannot designate a favorite in this slot. If I correctly pick the upset, I will be awarded 6 points. If I don’t correctly pick the game, I will be awarded 0 points. Picks 5 through 2 will be awarded the standard confidence points (5, 4, 3, 2) with a win, and 0 points with a loss. Quick note: A push is 1/2 the points of what I would’ve originally been awarded.

A “Perfect Week” is a 6-0 record for 26 points. A “Moron Week” is an 0-6 record for -6 points. Yay! We have negatives now!

Now let’s make some money!!!
