Week Six Picks in Review

Posted: October 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

ImageWeek five was a struggle for SkoodSports. After the first month saw us go nine games above .500, we sank to 3-11 on the week and fell to 38-37-1 on the year. Let’s see if there will be a rebound as October football continues:

Blue = Correct answer

Another poor week. I didn’t even pick the correct winner until Washington-Minnesota (thanks to spreads, it’s not really necessary to do so and succeed). A 6-8 record isn’t great and it pushed my season record to below .500 for the first time at 44-45-1. Hopefully this is an improvement and by next week, SkoodSports will be back on the winning side of things.
