Week 15 NFL Picks Against an 8-Year-Old

Last week I compared our picks to the stretch run of a horse race. JDaddy was coming on strong, but the kid felt the pressure, dug in his heels, and pulled away.  We all had respectable weeks-unusual for the Cheap Seats-but the 8-year-old had the best week.  He picked the right time to finally go against the Cowboys.

The best season ever was in 2012 when yours truly went 137-113-6.  The kid needs to pick 30 winners in the last 3 weeks of the season.  Won't be easy, but who's going to bet against him?

Week 14 Results
8-Year-Old: 10-6
CDog: 10-6
Uncle J: 9-7
JDaddy: 8-8

8-Year-Old: 108-94-6
CDog: 98-104-6
JDaddy: 97-105-6
Uncle J: 95-107-6

Week 14 NFL Picks Against an 8-Year-Old

Just like a great thoroughbred, JDaddy is making his move as we turn the corner to head down the homestretch.  The 8-year-old is maintaining his lead, but after back-to-back 11-5 weeks, JDaddy has climbed into second with his sights on the kid.  The biggest problem for JDaddy is that he needs to kid to have a bad week, which rarely seems to happen.  Still, with 4 weeks to go, 9 games doesn't seem to be that big of a deficit. 

Week 13 Results
JDaddy: 11-5
8-Year-Old: 10-6
Uncle J: 9-7
CDog: 7-9

8-Year-Old: 98-88-6
JDaddy: 89-97-6
CDog: 88-98-6
Uncle J: 86-100-6

The kid didn't win the week, but he expanded his lead yet again with a solid 10-6 week.  JDaddy had a great week with 11 wins.  2 straight last place finishes by Uncle J has allowed JDaddy out of the cellar.  Can anyone catch the kid? Will my 3 competitors ever give up hope on the Cowboys? Stay tuned to find out!
