Week 11 NFL Picks

It was nice to get back on track with a 2-1 week. The Browns covered easily, and even were leading most of the game. The Falcons were getting points, and won outright. Only the stinking Lions lost last weekend, but this weekend they’re at home, not on the road. Anyway, the record now stands at 10-7-1 for the year. Check out the week 11 picks, as posted at FanHouse:

Hey, it’s always fun to have a little something extra riding on the Reggie Bush/Mario Williams matchup. And damn, I learned my lesson with the Niners a few weeks ago. Losers.

Week 10 NFL Picks

Something about those road dogs, I dunno. It was pointed out to me that for the second week in a row, I took three road teams. Last week it didn’t work out so well. We’ll see how this week goes, but I’m taking three dogs and like the chances. Here are this week’s picks, as featured on FanHouse:

I’m telling you, the Browns are for real. (soon as I say it, they’ll stink up the joint, of course). Gotta love it.

Week Nine NFL Picks

Finally came back to Earth a little with 1-2 week. That actually felt good because I was getting worried about picking so many winners. The season record stands at 8-3-1, and based on my alternating weeks, I’m due for another hot one. Here’s this week’s installment of Doc Brown’s Sports Almanac Picks on FanHouse:

Ocho Cinco, baby!

Week 8 NFL Picks

Now we’re rolling at 7-1-1 on the year after another 3-0 week. You know what that means? I’m due for an 0-3 week coming up! Just kidding. Here are this week’s picks, as shown at FanHouse:

I never thought there would be a day that I would pull for Alex Smith, but there’s always a first for everything.

Week Six NFL Picks

Last week I introduced you to my new series at FanHouse where I’m picking games against the spread. In the first installment, we hit on all three picks to go 3-0. Here are my week six picks, and as you might have guessed, I offer my thoughts on the Cowboys/Patriots game.

Week Five NFL Picks

I started doing some video picks for FanHouse this week, all against the spread. Check it out:

Doc Brown’s Sports Almanac Picks

I’ve wrestled with these games like Angela Keathley and Renee Thomas yet I’ve been unable to come up with a viable conclusion. Who to pick, what to choose? These games seem tougher than ordinary. With this mental predicament in mind, I have no choice but to turn to a higher power for enlightenment.

Patriots (+156) – There are several rules that must be invoked here. 1) Never pick against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the playoffs – especially against Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy. Never. For good measure, last week’s win over the Chargers put me back in place. 2) Can’t take a guy with a lame comb-over instead of a buzz-fo-hawk and sideburns. Nothing speaks conservative tight ass quite like the comb over. Think about it, who do you want leading your team with 2 minutes left in the game, the straight arrow comb over or the reckless yet refined model look? The Sports Almanac Pick – Patriots 27 Colts 20

Bears (-2.5) – 1) life sucks. The only reason we have movies with happy endings is because they are scripted that way. There’s no way the Saints’ story ends with them reaching the Super Bowl, much less winning it. 2) Never take a dome team playing in cold weather in January. Never. 3) It’s the Aints we’re talking about here. This is their first appearance in a conference championship game. A Super Bowl berth would just be far too overwhelming. Henceforth, they physically cannot win. The Sports Almanac Pick – Bears 17 Saints 13
