Free Weekly NFL Game Picks Week 4

September 25, 2008

The super computer picked 7 out of 10 correctly again last week!  If New England hadn’t of melted down quicker than the big bang machine, it would have been 8 out of 10.  That being said, if you are trusting in the picks of the super computer, you are still in it to win it.  Remember, it is not just making the picks for you, it is ranking them in order of most certain to win.  So if you picked the number one choice each week so far you are still in your pool!

So here it is, week 4’s picked sorted and ranked by the super-secret NFL pool super computer:

1.  Dallas Cowboys (composite score 10)-  The Cowboys are the number 1 pick for the first time this season, more because of the quality of opponents they faced in weeks 2 and 3.  This week they take on the Redskins who will be out-matched at Texas Stadium.

2.  Buffalo Bills (composite score 14)-  The Bills are taking on the Rams which explains their number 2 status this week.  The Bills are going for 4-0 and the Rams are going for 0-4.  They are trotting out Trent Green for the first time since the 2000 season with the Rams.

3.  Denver Broncos(composite score 18)-  The Broncos have had a little help in getting to 3-0, they may need a little of that mojo in this one as Denver has lost 4 of the last 5 games at Arrowhead.  KC should provide a little of that help on their own…

4.  SD Chargers (composite score 22)-  The Chargers have won nine straight against the Raiders, here’s to number 10.

5.  Tennessee Titans(composite score 24)-  The Titans have been a surprise and new starter Kerry Collins looks good thus far.  Adrian Peterson’s hamstring is a question mark.  The Titans are going for their first 4-0 start in team history, but the Vikings have won the last 4 match-ups.

6.  Jacksonville Jags (composite score 25)-  The one-two punch of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 228 yards against Indianapolis last week.  The Houston defense ranks number 27 against the run…

7.  Philadelphia Eagles(composite score 27)-  Mcnabb and Westbrook are both a little roughed up this week, but both are expected to play.  When Mcnabb posts a 100+ passer rating the Eagles are 37-1 so it is obvious that as Mcnabb goes, so go the Eagles.

8.  Carolina Panthers (composite score 29)-  Both teams are tied for the lead in the NFC South.  The Panthers at home should provide a good test for the rookie Falcons QB.

9.  Pittsburgh Steelers(composite score 29)-  Close call here, but the Steelers should be a little more composed under the bright lights of Monday Night Football.  The loss of Willie Parker takes a little away from their offense, but their defense is looking to confuse rookie QB Flacco.

10.  Green Bay Packers (composite score 31)-  After running into a superior team last Sunday night in the Cowboys, they look to rebound against Tampa Bay.

Week 3 Free NFL game picks for your survival pool

September 17, 2008

The Super-Computer is learning and evolving!  It correctly chose 7 out of 10 winners last week!  It was so excited it tossed down one of it’s micro-chips before it crossed the goal line.

 With it’s data-based computations, the more we find out about the teams the better the picks.  So with that, I give you this week’s free NFL game picks for your last man standing pool:

1.  The New York Giants (composite score 14).  The Giants get top billing two weeks in a row.  The super computer does reside in NY, but the pick has more to do with the Giants week 3 opponents.  The Bengals have not shown much this year, and their inability to rush the QB bodes well for Eli.

2.  The Brady-less Patriots (composite score 17).  The Patriots are playing against a Miami defense that made Kurt Warner look like the old Ram’s MVP last week.

3.  Buffalo Bills (composite score 21).  This was a bit of a surprise, but the super computer knows what it is doing!  The Raiders looked better last week behind the running of Run DMC, but Buffalo held the stout running game of the Jaguars to under 100 yards, so they should be able to handle them.

4.  Seattle (composite score 33).  They are playing the Rams.  ‘Nuff said.

5.  Titans (composite score 34).  The Titans are playing against a Texan’s team that struggles to rush the passer, and that is exactly what Kerry Collins needs to be successful.

6.  Da’ Bears (composite score 38).  Both teams can guard against the run.  Which team can pass better?  The computer takes the Bears “D” over Tampa’s “O”.

7.  Atlanta (composite score 38).  The Falcons are facing a Chief’s defense that gave up over 300 yards rushing to the Raiders last week.  Michael Turner should have a field day.

8.  Denver Broncos (composite score 40).  You gotta love those receivers, and they have to be emotionally up after that dramatic win last week, going for 2 to win it.  The Saints defense has a lot of injuries and won’t be able to keep up.

9.  San Diego (composite score 40).  You just get the feeling they are due after their first two losses in the closing seconds.  They are also playing the weakest team they have faced in the Jets.

10.  Indianapolis (composite score 42).  The loss of Sanders hurts the Colt’s secondary, but Trent Edwards had a good day against the Jaguars so Peyton should be fine.

 

So there is your NFL week 3 Picks for your Suicide pool, last man standing pool, loser pool or whatever pool you are playing.  Have fun and good luck.

Week 2 Free NFL game picks for your survival pool

September 10, 2008

Well, it was a wild first week in the NFL as we all know.  That being said, the super computer that rivals the CERN atom-smasher was still able to pick 6 out of 10 correctly for week 1.  In order to improve the results going into week 2, we have added 6 more expert source picks as well as the latest Vegas line and the percentages of picks from two major pools to the algorithm.  So, it is with great optimism that I give you your NFL week 2 top 10 picks for Last Man Standing and Survival pools.

The Free NFL Picks Super Computer

The Free NFL Picks Super Computer

1.  The New York Football Giants (composite score 11)-   One of the lowest composite scores yet (just like golf, low is good).  They looked good in week 1, but more importantly the Rams looked Baaaddd.

2.  Pittsburgh Steelers (composite score 21)- The Cowboys racked up over 500 yards and three rushing TD’s against the Browns in week 1.

3. Seattle (composite score 27)- It would be good to use this pick early, because the 49’ers may be one of the only teams we will be this confident the Seahawks will beat after losing to Buffalo last week.

4. Green Bay (composite score 39)- The packers looked composed under Aaron Rodgers while the Lions looked like they wanted to kill each other on the sidelines.

5. New Orleans (composite score 40)- This one may be close, but put your faith in the super-computer.  Drew Brees throwing for 343 yards in week 1 against Tampa should help ease your concerns.

6. Arizona (composite score 42)- Again, good time to use up the Cardinals as they only play the Dolphins once this year.

7. Kansas City (composite score 43)- They should have beaten the Patriots last week.  They will beat the Raiders this week.

8. Dallas (composite score 44)- Both teams looked imposing week 1, but Dallas gets back their starting corner Terence Newman this week and Philly is still missing some receivers.  That being said, you may want to save the Cowboys for later as they look like the top of the heap this year.

9. Tampa Bay (composite score 45)- Tampa hung right with a talented New Orleans team last week, Atlanta shouldn’t be a problem for the talented Bucs against a rookie QB.

10. Indianapolis (composite score 48)- Peyton looked a little rusty but he and Marvin were connecting.  Minnesota’s QB situation should make you feel good about this pick.

So there is your top ten picks for your Last Man Standing or Survival pools.  We wish you luck and want to remind you that the earth is in no danger from the black holes created by the incredible fusion that it takes to compute all of this data into 10 handy NFL pool picks every week.  It also works, for Knockout pools, loser pools, survivor pools, last man standing pools and suicide pools.
