Yeah that almost looks like a lock. Speaking of locks, Melanie took Atlanta again so the Jets are a lock this week too haha.

I think Detroit as a +7 underdog is a GREAT pick.

The Lions are basically the Bengals but better. Their front 4 is gonna eat Rodgers alive and 60 percent of the Packers
are second or third string guys already or are gimping around on hamstring injuries.

Week 2 I picked the last four games on the list and went 3-1.
I'm still riding that trend and not looking at any other games other than the last 4.

I haven't gone 3-1 each time, but I haven't gone 0-4 either.

Until now since I mentioned it.

I was praising myself for the +7 Lions pick. Didn't know Johnson was out for the game. The Lions are getting spanked 16-3.
They won't even cover a touchdown spread.

Anybody else pick the Broncos as an "immortal lock" to beat the Cowboys by 10? They're losing by 10 right now and look decisively mortal.

So, Pick 4 League...

I picked a team that scored over 50 points...

And they didn't cover a single digit spread.

Should I even bother or should I just throw my computer out the third story window?

Lol. Wild stuff! I wonder how many the Broncos will be favored next week? Home against JAX!

What's the record for a spread in the modern era? I'm guessing we're about to find out xD.

I think a couple Vikings, Rams, Pats, Saints and Packers games have had 19.5 spreads, just based on them being the most high octane offenses of
their eras. I've never heard of a 20 point spread for an NFL game.

In 2009 the Vikings were favored by 17 over Detroit and we won 27-10. Nailed it Vegas! And we were 14.5 point dogs at Philly (Joe Webb game) in 2010 and we won 24-14. Those are the largest Viking related spreads I can find in recent years.

New England was favored by 2 TD's or more in 10 of their 16 regular season games in 2007. 3 times they were favored by 20+ with their largest margin being 24.5 over the Eagles.

The '98 Vikings were double digit favorites just 6 times with the largest being 16 vs Chicago.
