Week six overtakes week four as officially the worst weak. Six people had to drop it. Joe Pesci emerges as the king of the slope with Aceluby coming in second and Bronn and Beavers tying for third. Here's where we are through the season. On to week seven!

A very tight bunch of games after three with big spreads.  Double digit numbers on games with spreads of 3.5 points or fewer will be mandatory.

Same, and honestly we're not doing bad record wise, just getting killed with the high confidence upsets.

I had picked the Saints, then switched to Chicago after hearing Kamara was out, whoops, wish I hadn't heard that news! Only 5 points but still.

Week seven is in the books and finally most players got back to having normal weeks. The Beavers get to claim the top spot for the first time this season with the Ballers coming in second. There was also a three way tie for third. Interesting to see that people are finally making up ground on ME. That early season heater appears to have cooled off.

Don't think that your picks go unappreciated! I see some crazy ones and I'm like WTF? There is a pool here at work and a guy is taking Cleveland over the Patriots. So much so he placed a cash bet, with NO points, he refused the points! He is a Cleveland fan and he made 200 when they beat Baltimore so I can't bag on him too much.

One thing I noticed is that for some website glitch reason I don't understand, ME's games add up to one more than everyone elses.  It's like he got to pick Georgia-South Carolina and thought he was getting free points.

On topic, the measurement bars this week suggest that most games are going to have consensus picks over 75%.

as to the picks this week, yeah i think you mean the % bar graph on the far right of pick screen...i look at it, and i also use nfl pickwatch...lots of experts who aren't even doing as well as some of you guys at the top...

even though i know i ain't the first to do this...i go against the stream just to see if i can sneak in a big payoff...it is why i don't always put big points on sure things cause either we all get 'em or we don't but if i go low on those games i can spend the big bucks on toss ups where i have a chance to advance...straight into the cellar :commie:

Everyone had a monster week. The worst score was 103 and the Ballers were one point away from a perfect game. Because Mitch.....

Here we are at the halfway mark. Your humble narrator continues to plummet despite having good weeks......:

Not a relatively good week for me.  But at least we aren't picking the winners of games from the World Series.  I think I would have gotten every game except Game 4 wrong.

Drat.  I lost 14 points because I picked New England. 

I think I'll keep doing that and hope for the same result. (after the Bye, of course)

exactly what i was thinking when i put 12 on dallas...i would happily sacrifice for them to get a spanking
