NFL Week 1 expert picks against the spread – Doc’s picks

Wooooooo!!!!!! Footbawwwwww is here!!!! It’s Week 1 of the NFL season. Everyone has hopes of making the playoffs and winning the Super Bowl. Clean slates for everyone! And once again, everyone thinks they have a chance of beating Doc Brown in NFL picks. And once again, that won’t happen.

The Doc has a pristine record as a prognosticator and will continue his run of success this season. Just like many years in the past, the experts here at LBS will be picking games each week. Doc and Del will post our picks straight up and against the spread and keep track of our running totals all season. As usual, we’ll also do our weekly top 3 picks. Those are the money in the bank locks.

This time around we’re also adding a twist — the previous week’s winner in the LBS weekly pick ‘em pool (go here for details on signing up) will also make picks each week. Since it’s Week 1, we’ve asked last year’s league champ BMK to make his picks as well. Those are far below.

Below are Doc and Del’s Week 1 picks against the spread and straight up with some analysis below.

NFL Week 1 expert picks against the spread – Del’s picks

And we’re back, folks. After a painful 2013 NFL season, Doc Brown and Del are with you once again to bring you our expert* analysis all season long. Let’s just say 2013 was not a good year for picks here at LBS. Both Doc and Del were beat up all season and finished below the 50% mark against the spread and with weekly locks. The good news about that? It has us more motivated for the 2014 season.

For those of you who are first-timers, we pick every game against the spread and straight up every week. The picks you see highlighted in blue are the games we feel best about. If you’re a gambler — not that we promote that kind of thing (cough, cough) — and you happen to trust us, those are the ones you want to pay close attention to.

Without further ado and pathetic disclaimer, here are Del’s picks for Week 1 of the NFL season. Read analysis of the Top 3 selections below the chart. Check back later in the week for Doc Brown’s picks.

Congratulations to BK Picks for winning the LBS Pick ‘em Pool

Big congratulations are in order for Bryan K, whose BK Picks won the LBS Pick ‘em Pool. BK Picks finished with an impressive record of 131-89 (59.5% when you count his lowest two weeks being dropped).

BK Picks impressively picked 14 of 16 games correctly against the spread in Week 14, and 11 of 16 games correctly against the spread in Weeks 15-17 to win the league.

Congratulations are also in order for scBslug/Mike22, who missed winning the league by one point. He still had an excellent season and nearly pulled it out by posting 11 correct picks in Week 17.

Bring em’ Back!/Paul finished in third with 126 correct picks. Paul wasn’t able to get over the hump in the final three weeks, posting a five that got dropped, and back-to-back nines, but he still had a great season.

Play Action finished in fourth with 123 points. He started the season by winning Week 1 and kept up a strong pace after that.

Congratulations to all on a fun season and thank you very much for playing. If you were one of the top three finishers, please email me to collect your prize. And if you feel like you deserve a prize for participating all season, winning a week or just because, send me an email as well.

Oh, and as the cherry on top of the terrible season for Doc and Del, below are our results for the full year of picks. This was by far the worst we’ve ever done. Doc is in shame.

See you again next season.

NFL picks Week 17 against the spread – Doc’s picks

Below are Doc’s picks for Week 17 of the NFL season along with his top three selections. The picks have been so bad this season, we’ll spare you the terrible analysis.

NFL picks Week 17 against the spread – Del’s picks

This is it, folks — the final week of what has been an abysmal season of picks against the spread. After going 8-7 against the spread in Week 17 (including 1-2 in the top three picks of the week), Del has officially eliminated himself from having a shot at picking above the 50-percent mark on the season. All we’re looking to do is salvage a little dignity in the final week of the season. Here are Del’s Week 17 Picks. Check back later in the week for Doc Brown’s picks.

NFL picks Week 16 against the spread – Doc’s picks

There were some technical difficulties that prevented the Doc from posting his picks before the first round of games in Week 16, but we didn’t want to think we’re trying to cheat you by not posting them. Below you can see who Doc picked for Week 16 of the NFL season. He’s fighting hard to get back to .500. It’s been a struggle.

NFL picks Week 16 against the spread – Del’s picks

Del somehow managed to pick at above the .500 mark against the spread last week, but 8-7 isn’t going to cut it. We’ve dug ourselves too deep of a hole, so we’re pretty much picking for pride over these last two weeks. Del did manage to follow a 3-0 week of locks with a 2-1 week in the top three, so at least we’re salvaging some respect there.

The goal over these last two weeks will be to end on a good note after an abysmal season. Here are Del’s Week 16 NFL Picks, with analysis of the top three after the chart. Check back later in the week for Doc Brown’s picks.
