NFLNFL "Experts" Picks

Week 7 NFL Picks, SportsGrid vs. The ‘Experts’: We’re All Losers, Especially Pete Prisco


Pete PriscoEvery week, the SportsGrid staff will pick every single NFL game against the spread. We will compare ourselves to touted “expert” Pete Prisco, whom we truly believe is not an expert at the fine, difficult art of predicting football games. He has proved us right since Week 1. He’s in last amongst humans.

Bill Simmons is in the mix, too.

We’re not claiming to be experts. We’re just trying to have fun. And showcase our Cat On A Roomba, whom we truly believe is an expert, but sits in dead-last. It’s a long season. The cream will rise to the top.

(And be sure to check out my betting feature with lengthy analysis for each game.)

We’ve all done a good job proving my (obvious, yet somehow often not believed) point that NFL betting is incredibly hard, because ALL OF US would be down money if we had bet on each of these games. If you bet all of Roomba Cat’s pick’s to win $100, you’d be down $2760. If you bet all of mine, you’d be down $30.

No consensus picks this week. I like that.

And if you didn’t notice, we added two participants, readers @NotTheFakeBruce and @BorganMurrows. Cheer them on.

Notes: Point spreads are taken from 5dimes.eu sometime near the end of the week. They fluctuate, but we have to pick a number, and we do. Also, yes, the Thursday game happened already, but everybody had their picks in by then. Mine, Prisco’s and Simmons’ were published, and the others emailed me their picks in time. I swear.

    Yoy guys are really professionals? The best score last week was 8? Pathetic. ..

    Be Bop… It’s just a shame there aren’t “Black armbands” around for people like you… the type of armbands that can identify people that are pure evil and are destined to rot in the flames of hell. Like I said before…a disgusting piece of filth.

    no, we’re not professional bettors, chris. i thought we made that clear, but here it is for clarification

  • chris

    Wow, pure evil bc I said the nfl picks were pathetic bc its in a sports column. Thats sad, im gonna rot in the flames of hell but then again if you truley believed in the flames of hell youd take a different approach to criticize me than using the words pure evil for something like this

  • Anonymous

    haha, i think this wasn’t supposed to be directed towards you, chris. you are certainly not evil

  • chris

    I was gonna say, thats a little harsh dont you think lol. I didnt know what ‘be bop’ was… never the less im sorry for my harsh criticism on your picks but I was anxious for the game and half of you guys picked against my chiefs and we see how that went lol… but game day has ce and passed and alas the chiefs are the only undefeated team left in the nfl and I know every one is still going to undermine the chiefs but remember, the colts are the only winning team the broncos have played besides the cowboys as of this week and the broncos should have lost to them as well

    haha, no worries. i have said many mean things when people insult the jets. although i must point out three things:

    1) 3 of our 4 staff members picked the chiefs (i was the lone one who didn’t)

    2) we’re picking against-the-spread. picking the texans was picking them +7 points (which was a win)

    3) i picked the chiefs to make the super bowl (http://www.sportsgrid.com/nfl/dallas-cowboys-2013-season-preview-pretty-much-screwed/)

  • chris

    I dont think the chiefs weevil won the supervised this year although I do expect them to win a home game and I hate living against the asked lol just bc a team is capable of winning by however many doesnt mean the will keep the pedal down. I would like the chiefs to make the cowboys that would be awesome, the cards (mutt factory baseball team) is already in the works series

  • melissa

    Tell chris that my post was meant specifically for that antisemetic prick named “be bop”… not chris. Have him read “be bops” hateful posts that he put on your blog towards Jewish people and wearing yellow armbands.

  • melissa

    That post of mine wasn’t directed to you at all!! It was for “be bob”

  • chris

    Your jets are on the verge of taking the east I think they’ll be the team to beat in that division with in the next year or 2 vs the patriots like it has been for a while now. Geno was a steal for you guys in the draft, before the chiefs got alex smith I wanted them to draft him 1st overall (and I think he wouldve been worth it) hes a good franchise qb. Not at lucks level out of the gate but has potential.

  • chris

    Oh ok I didnt see his post so automatically assumed you were talkin to me lol
