Contributing written content in the name of the Winners Club Podcast is a burden I carry rather humbly. However, last week I crossed the thin line between humbleness and hubris by attacking my good friend and co-host Chris Scheim in this blog post. They say what goes around comes around, and this week my 0-3 against the spread record was the blemish on an otherwise pristine week for the Club. Here’s how we did:
Mut flexed his prowess with a 3-0 week (5-1 on the year), capitalizing on big wins from the Colts and Rams and doing what the Falcons couldn't and barely stave off a Dallas comeback. (Dan Quinn’s warm seat is wishing final scores were more akin to spreads…)
Scheim had a big bounceback week after starting the season 0-3 (3-3 on the year). First he gambled hard by betting on the Ravens, then he copied Mut’s Rams pick, and finally he lucked out by taking the Giants +5.5 against the Bears. I'm a little concerned that Scheim gambled too much this past week.
I had a tussle with Lady Variance as every single pick of my 0-3 week (2-4 on the year) came down to the end of the game: Cam Newton on the goal line in Seattle, the Steelers opting to run out the clock instead of kicking a field goal to cover, and the ghastly corpse of Leonard Fournette streaking through the Panthers’ defense in garbage time.
Minor setback for a major comeback. You can’t start a fire without a spark.
Here are our picks for Week 3 in the NFL:
Mut: TEN -2.5 @ MIN; PIT -4 v HOU; SF/NYG u 41.5
Scheim: ATL -3 v CHI; TEN -2.5 @ MIN; GB +3.5 @ NO
John: CIN +5 @ PHI; CLE -7 v WAS; NE -5.5 v LV
BONUS! - Scheim’s triple-dog dare parlay: GB ML, CIN ML, LAR ML ($20 wins over $300)
