Pilfo's Picks: Week 17
December 23th 2008
OK folks, those who have the guts usually get the glory. With a few exceptions
of course, i.e. Plaxico, O.J., etc., etc. Enough of that. Let's get back to
football. It is the last week of the regular season and all the point-spreads go
bonkers in the NFL. I have found that if you play all the underdogs who are not
going to the playoffs vs. the teams fighting for their lives or for a better
seed, you will win. It's that simple. The people that balk at this suggestion
are the same people that have tried this on a small scale and tried to pick one
or two dogs and have fallen on their faces. No good. You have to go all the way
and play all the teams in this situation because undoubtedly one or two will
give up midway through the 3rd quarter or not show up at all. There appear to be
6 games that fit the bill this week. I will only list the dogs because that's
all you need to know:
The key here is to wait as long as you can before betting these teams because as
the games grow closer the betting public just can't bear to bet on a team that
has nothing to play for so the already high spreads become even bigger. The edge
goes to those who have the guts to take all 6 of the above teams and march to
the windows to collect their 5-1 or 4-2 winnings with pride while hearing others
say things like: "how did the Raiders do that?" and "Rams???, come on Rams?? who
woulda thunk it?" You get to say to them things like: "you laid 15 points in the
NFL?" and "Playoffs?, Playoffs?, we're just trying to win a game."
Oh what a glorious day it will be come Sunday. Oh, what a glorious day it will
This is my gift to you people with guts.
Happy Holidays all.
