Week 5 NFL Picks, SportsGrid vs. The ‘Experts’: Our ‘Expert’ Cat On A Roomba Is So Awful
Our Week 5 NFL picks are here.
Every 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 proved us right Week 1, going 4-12-1, but then somehow went 11-5 last week. Last week, he was .500.
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.)
Just so you know, Rick would be up $1,270 if he had bet $110 to win $100 on every game he picked. (He didn't, I don't think.) Roomba Cat would be down $30 million. Roomba Cat also hasn't yet picked Texans/49ers.
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.
