Toilet, say hello to my picks.
That’s where they were last week, swirling around in a disgusting display of picking games as they flushed my nice start to the season down the drain.
I went 6-9 against the spread, dropping my season mark to 85-77-3. I went 8-7 straight up to get to 97-67-1 and my Best Bets as part of the Pick-Six Podcast went 2-4, dropping my record to 35-34.
It’s weird, but I knew the bad week was coming. I didn’t like the card at all, which is why I went with a lot of dogs, and my picks were more like the stuff dogs leave on the ground as they take their walks.
So let’s turn it around. This week, I actually like the card. And it’s Thanksgiving week, which means I want you to be thankful that my picks came back out of the muck. I have a good feeling.

This will likely be Andy Dalton vs. Tim Boyle in the battle of quarterbacks. Oh, boy. These two teams are going nowhere, but the Lions are still playing hard. That matters. The situation with Bears coach Matt Nagy doesn’t help either. Dan Campbell gets his first victory.
Pick: Lions 19, Bears 16
