Have you not had enough angst in your life? Do you have to come visit this addictive weekly exercise in futility? Why is it that this no-frills weekly submission is our most read regular post? Are we doing that well that you must look at our picks before losing your rent money?
We have told you time and again that you should not use these picks to make real wagers, because we sure don’t. So, why is it that we have dozens of visits from web addresses in Nevada, Delaware, Ontario, and Europe, the places where there are legal storefront sports books?
We have figured out the answer. Something in the way we select teams has been tipping off the smart bettors. They know something about our picks we ourselves do not know. Maybe when we select an NFC West game, and they believe the opposite will be true, they wager more knowing they will be correct, and we will not. Or, maybe when we select a money line parlay, they take each of the individual components and wager against our selection?
Our more likely, a couple dozen poor souls do not heed our advice and go ahead and use this site as their reference. When we say “poor” souls, we are hiting the nail on the head, because our picks have been mediocre to this point.
With that in mind, remember that a broken clock is still correct twice a day, and we figure that eventually our broken clock will tell the correct time this year–maybe this week.
We are expanding our picks this week, because in our crazy mixed-up brains, the five of us believe we know things that the books do not. We believe we have isolated some decent picks this week. For your sake, we hope you know better.
