When I made my picks the Week 9 of the NFL season last Friday, I warned you all, saying, "I decided to jump back into the prediction game, if only to make a fool of myself one more time." I proved myself right, picking only five of 13 games correctly. Here is a look back at Sunday's NFL scores, along with my misguided picks, with odds:
Miami Dolphins 31, Kansas City Chiefs 3: Probably the most shocking result of the day, with Miami picking up their first win, on the road in Kansas City against the four-point favorites, whom I picked. 2-3.
Arizona Cardinals 19, St. Louis Rams 13 (OT): The Rams (+1) had a chance to win at the horn in regulation but had their 42-yard field goal blocked. Patrick Peterson took care of them in overtime with an amazing 99-yard punt return. 4-6.
Favorites were 6-7 in Week 9 against the spread. The lesson, as always: if you want to make money, pick the opposite of what I do.
