NFL Picks Week 11 against the spread – Del’s desperation

At this point, all we can really do is roll our weekly picks out there and see what happens. Del followed up an abysmal 2-11 week against the spread in Week 9 with a less-than-impressive 6-8 record in Week 11. The only positive we can take from last week is the 2-1 in the top-three selections. We’re a full 15 games below the 50-percent mark against the spread with seven weeks remaining. Will it be impossible to get our heads back above water? No, but we need a lot of luck.

Hopefully, that luck starts this week. That’s about all I have to say for myself. Here are Del’s Week 11 NFL Picks, with analysis of the top three (or four this week) after the sheet. Check back later in the week for Doc Brown’s picks.

NFL picks Week 10 against the spread – Doc’s revenge

Doc has been destroyed on his picks over the past few weeks. Frankly, it’s been embarrassing. So we’re trying out a new strategy this week, and it already worked on the Thursday night game. We’re going with the Costanza plan.

If every instinct Doc has had lately has been wrong, then the opposite must be right, no? Instead of tuna on toast, coleslaw, and coffee, we’re going chicken salad on rye, untoasted, with potato salad, and tea.

There’s just too much bizarre stuff happening in the NFL lately and everything we think is going to happen has not been going down. That’s the logic behind these picks. Sure, Seattle’s much better than Atlanta, but the Seahawks probably aren’t going to cover on the road in the dome.

Everyone thinks the Broncos should blow out the Chargers, but it won’t be so easy on Sunday Night Football in San Diego. The Chargers have actually played very well in their last three games, and don’t underestimate the importance of John Fox not being on the sidelines for Denver.

Cincinnati’s 6-3 while Baltimore is 3-5 and has lost three in a row. Everything points to the Bengals being better and this being a game they should win, but the Ravens are at home for the first time since Week 6 and will put on a good show for the occasion.

NFL picks Week 10 against the spread – Del’s misfortunes

Last week was a complete embarrassment. That’s pretty much all I can say. There’s no excuse for going 2-11 against the spread and 0-3 in the supposed “top three” selections, but Del figured out a way to do it. Simply put, we have to kill it over the second half of the season. Otherwise, we’re going to finish below the dreaded 50-percent mark. Del will do his best to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Without further misery, here are some Week 10 NFL Picks. Be sure to read the analysis of the top three (if you dare) after the chart and check back later in the week for Doc Brown’s picks.

NFL picks Week 9 against the spread – Doc’s picks

The best part about having so many NFL teams on byes this week is there are fewer chances for us pick games wrong this week. That’s always a good thing, right?

Well after two bad weeks in a row, it’s time for a bounce-back week. We’re going to get it this time. Analysis of the top 3 is below.

NFL picks Week 8 against the spread – Del’s selections

Now that we have reached the halfway point in the NFL season, it will be crucial for Del to establish some consistency going forward. Last week, Del posted an impressive 8-5 record against the spread while going 2-1 in the top three. If we can string together a couple more weeks like that, we can finally get above the 50% mark for overall picks and locks.

One theme you’ll likely notice with the Week 9 lines is that injuries are starting to influence spreads. Green Bay a 10.5-point favorite over Chicago? Don’t forget Jay Cutler is hurt. Oakland laying 2.5 against Philadelphia? The Eagles quarterback situation remains a mess. You get the point. Here are Del’s Week 8 NFL picks against the spread, with analysis of the top three after the chart. Check back later for Doc Brown’s picks.

NFL picks Week 8 against the spread – Doc’s picks

Last week was absolutely dreadful for Doc Brown. A total week to forget. 0-3 on the Top 3 picks, and the rest didn’t do much better. But that means we’re primed for a turnaround this week.

There’s a game in London with weather being a concern. Mike Vick is likely in at quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Jason Campbell is getting the start for the Cleveland Browns. Christian Ponder is back in the saddle for the Minnesota Vikings. Doc and Del’s Week 8 picks are below, with analysis of the top three picks after the chart.

NFL picks Week 8 against the spread – Del’s selections

This is getting very difficult to sugarcoat. After bouncing back with some impressive work against the spread in Week 6, Del is finding it difficult to gain momentum. Week 7 did not go very well, as we went a measly 5-10 against the spread and 1-2 with the top three. We’re entering the halfway point of the season this week, and it needs to get better — fast.

Hopefully Week 8 will begin the dominance. Here are Del’s Week 8 Picks, with analysis of the top three after the sheet. Check back later in the week for Doc Brown’s picks.
