Never bet on the NFL

It is not overstating the case to assert that I am a respectable prophet of NFL results. At 76-39, my record this year is better than any of Yahoo’s four so-called experts, and even surpasses what TMQ describes as the Wisdom of the Crowds at 74-41. I feel quite confident that tonight will see a Steeler’s victory and provide me with a 12-2 record for the second time in three weeks.

That being said, I somehow managed to lose two of the three games of which I felt most certain this weekend. Tampa was upset by San Francisco and St. Louis beat Jacksonville despite being on the road and missing their head coach, starting quarterback and their top two wide receivers.

Never bet on the NFL. Never.
