NFL Football Contest

Ok guys, Im gonna try throwing a weekly football pool. Im gonna give all the games and their spreads and you guys pick the winners against the spread of course. You can also choose to take the over/unders instead of the taking a team. Home teams are in caps. On Tuesday morning ill calculate everybodies winning percentages and i’ll do this throughout the year to see who accumulates the best record. You must choose a minimum of 4 plays per week. Heres the games:

Tennessee (-1.5) at NEW ENGLAND (40.5)
Cincinatti at BUFFALO (-8.5) (39.5)
Miami at NEW YORK GIANTS (-.5) (37.5)
Seattle at GREEN BAY (-2.5) (45.5)
Oakland(-4.5) at CHICAGO (42.5)
New Orleans at CAROLINA (-6.5) (37.5)
Minnesota (-4.5) at ATLANTA (42.5)
Denver at KANSAS CITY (-3.5) (45.5)
Arizona at DALLAS (-7.5) (38.5)
San Diego at JACKSONVILLE (-3.5) (42.5)
Washington at PHILADELPHIA (-5.5)(38.5)
Detroit at SAN FRANCISCO (-7.5) (41.5)
Cleveland at PITTSBURGH (-7.5) (42.5)
Indy at TAMPA BAY (-4.5) (37.5)

I thought T-Mag was a mans website. I thought real men liked football. I thought real men like to gamble. So why the fuck hasnt anybody replied to this contest. Wheres the balls, wheres the testosterone?

Tony, it was a friday night. Men were out getting action, or at least drinking beer while trying to snag some.

I went 8-4. I’m thinking Tonytriceps bookie busted him up.

'Cake pulls 7-7… but I DID get 9 right in my pool (same picks…no spread)

Ah, thank god for “next week”…

Cake,

That was by far your greatest quote ever.

Sorry Im late guys, been real busy. I did bad last week. Bookie only took $15 from me. I put a big wager on Cleveland sunday night. Lost $220 Monday night on the stupidest game I ever watched, but won it back tonight taking the stars over the ducks in hockey. Anyways here are the results, I promise to be quicker next week:

Doogie 8-4 .667
Eric Cressey 4-4 .500
JP Dubya 2-2 .500
Cupcake 6-8 .433
Phill 6-8 .433
Uniko 4-10 .298
Tonytriceps 1-3 .250

Im in last place, how embarrasing. Hopefully more people participate next week. For everyone who participated last week, your scores next week will be added on. Doogie you win WEEK 1. Thanks to the rest of you for participating.

Only seven people participated last week, hopefully we get a little more this week. Remember minimum 4 plays per week. Heres the games:
