During last year’s football season, Polimom posted picks every week against the spread. Since I ended up second overall in the pool, I was okay with sharing my “expertise” (LOL!!) with the virtual world.
This year, not so much. Polimom seems to have lost the touch — so much so, in fact, that I wondered whether I’d do better to make my picks by simply flipping a coin.
Since flipping this golden coin resulted in 11-5 last week — and also because it has no ego — I hereby present The Golden Coin’s picks for NFL Week 12:
Green Bay over Detroit (+3.5)
Dallas over NY Jets (+14.5)
Indianapolis over Atlanta (+11.5)
New Orleans over Carolina (+2.5)
Jacksonville over Buffalo (+7.5)
Houston over Cleveland (-3.5)
Tennessee over Cincinnati (+1.5)
St. Louis over Seattle (-3.5)
Oakland over Kansas City (-5.5)
Minnesota over NY Giants (-7.5)
Washington over Tampa Bay (-3.5)
Arizona over San Francisco (+10.5)
Denver over Chicago (-2.5)
San Diego over Baltimore (+9.5)
New England over Philadelphia (+22.5 — ack!!)
Pittsburgh over Miami (+15.5)
Point spreads in effect. Happy Thanksgiving, and good luck to (and from) the Golden Coin!
