Back by popular demand, we present our Pitiful Picks! We’ll pick a selection of games, including the Dolphins game, every week. At the end of the year, we’ll look forward to being mocked….endlessly. Last year, we started off slow, but were able to rebound and finish above .500. We even took the Seahawks as underdogs in the Super Bowl and won! But that was last year, this week we’re starting with a blank slate.
In our preseason predictions, we had the Dolphins beating the Patriots and losing to the Bills. Are they that predictable? Apparently so! We won’t count those 2 victories, like I said, we’re starting fresh this week. If you choose to play along, leave your picks BEFORE THE 1 O’CLOCK GAMES, in the comment section! We’re using the CBS point spreads, so if you have a problem with the spreads, take it up with them. Here we go:
Colts – 6.5 over Jaguars
You’re probably going to notice a theme here: desperation. The Colts are 0-2 after tough losses to the Broncos and Eagles. They’re on the road, but it’s hard not to pick them when they NEED a win, they’re playing the Jaguars, and the spread is less than a touchdown. Andrew Luck will not lose to the Jaguars and I’m betting the Colts come out and make short work of their AFC South foes. Prediction: Colts 30 Jaguars 13
