It looked so good early on for me in Week 8 with the picks.
Then I faded. Badly.
After opening 7-2, I finished 9-6, against the spread, which isn’t good enough. That means I went 2-4 down the stretch. When can I finish a week strong?
That 9-6 puts my record ATS at 66-53-3. I went 8-7 straight up to bring my mark to 74-38 for the season. My Best Bets on the Pick-Six Podcast went 3-4, which brings my season mark to 25-26, which certainly isn’t good enough.
Maybe this will be the week when I start and finish well.
The Jets will continue to start Mike White, who was outstanding in the upset of the Bengals last week. The Colts aren’t great against the pass, either. But this is a short week for a young team that isn’t used to winning. That matters. The Colts will win it behind a good offensive showing by Carson Wentz.
Pick: Colts 31, Jets 19
New Orleans Saints
