The obligatory congratulations is in order as you’ve tiptoed your way through the minefield of the NFL through twelve weeks.  Perhaps people are running short on options but the public is on some teams that I think are pretty bad picks this week.  If you have saved some good teams, then I think you’ll have […]

Week 8 Survivor Pool Analysis

by Travis Reed • October 25, 2017

We didn’t have the disaster zone in Week 7 that we’ve seen in previous weeks.  Some people were knocked out with the Chiefs and Panthers losing as small road favorites but the chalk picks of the Cowboys and Titans came through as well as my pick on the Jaguars last week. There are plenty of […]


NFL Survivor Pool Week 7 Analysis

by Travis Reed • October 18, 2017

Congrats on those who were able to dodge the minefield in Week 6.  The two biggest moneyline upsets of the season both came last week as the Falcons and Broncos both lost as double-digit favorites.  This week there isn’t a touchdown favorite in the entire NFL which could be the recipe for a ton of […]
