Above are my predictions for the NFL based on point spreads and over/under totals. I think the last time I did these predictions I got 4-5 point spread predictions right and 4-5 over/under totals right and like 6 straight up picks correct. After the week 4 craziness I thought it would be fun to see how seriously bad I am at this and the reassure myself never to gamble.

Have a spiffy Thursday!


Note: as of 10-09-2017 in the a.m. – here is how I fared so far:

Straight up 7-6  / Over-Under 8-2  /  Versus point spreads  5-5
