The Hypothetical SuperContest 2015 – Week 8


4-1 last week! Eagles blew it because of course they did. It’s fine. I’m trying not to mess this up for me. Let’s get straight to the picks. I’ll explain why after the jump.

Home team gets the asterisk.

SuperContest2015Week8This week I move to New York City. I will have a new home. I don’t know what it will be like but I know it will be new. The one thing I do know is that I won’t have my dog, Rosie.

Life is going to be hard. I will be very lonely. It’s almost 4am on Sunday morning and we already fell backward so really it’s like 5. I have bags to pack, shoes to buy, mac n cheese to make, and picks to pick all before I leave on my new adventure.

I love my dog. I will have a new home. In hopes of sending positive vibes towards those two aspects of my cosmic experience, and because I haven’t worked hard enough to give you the legitimate picks you deserve, this week we’re going to close our eyes and take all the home dogs.

Broncos* (+3) over Packers

Peyton Manning in a night game! Still think this is a bad pick though.

Raiders* (+2.5) over Jets

Raiders! Screw the Jets.

Cowboys* (+6) over Seahawks

This is an awful pick. Put all of your money on the Seahawks oh dear god why did I commit to this gimmick?

Browns* (+5) over Cardinals

Don’t sleep on the Browns.

Bears* (+1.5) over Vikings

This was my favorite bet on the board so this is cool.

Chance the Gambler

Grantland is dead. To honor their memory, I’m sharing some of my favorite pieces here. The date the article was released will be used to determine our picks. Simple enough.
