Have Yourself A Merry Little Windfall, But Not From These Picks

Oh, what a festive weekend!  Even in these trying times for many, we all have something to be thankful for.  For us here at the PiRate Ratings, we are so thankful for our families and friends, of which there are many. 


Now, of course, if there is some secret Santa out there, we wouldn’t mind a really excellent closing to our NFL football ratings’ season.  By excellent, we are not talking about a particular team.  The PiRate Ratings have moved up to number two in the overall against the spread comparison in The Prediction Tracker, just a slice of a percentage behind number one.  Never mind, Santa.  You have a lot more to do in the next couple of days. We’ll have to try to reach your female friend, Lady Luck.


Okay, here are our merry picks this week.
