Last week, 5-8-1; for the season, 101-72-1. Pick of the Week, 0-1. For the season, 9-3.
I must be honest. Some weeks when I’m having trouble picking a certain game, I have been known to go with the home team. This past week I struggled with a good number of games, and lo and behold my penchant for going with the home team was very costly. I ended up taking 11 home teams only to see seven of them lose and one end in a tie. In addition, my Pick of the Week, the Giants, were one of those seven teams. So much for the “go with the home team” approach.
