Week 5 NFL Picks Against an 8-Year-Old

Through 4 weeks we're looking pretty good.  No one has completely tanked, and we are all holding our own.  We've always graded the kid against the point spread, just like the rest of us, but this year he's actually taking the spread into his own thinking when picking his winners.  I don't think he knows what to do with that information, but then again, neither do we.

Week 4 Results
CDog: 7-7-1
JDaddy: 7-7-1
8-Year-Old: 6-8-1
Uncle J: 5-9-1

CDog: 33-28-2
8-Year-Old: 32-29-2
Uncle J: 30-31-2
JDaddy: 30-31-2

Week 2 NFL Picks Against an 8 Year Old

Well how about that. After years of futility by us here at the Cheap Seats, we had quite the week.  JDaddy was the only one to pick more losers than winners, and even he only missed by 1. Maybe this is the year we get things straight.

Week 1 Results
CDog (I'm first because I do the posts, sorry): 9-6-1
Uncle J: 9-6-1
8-Year-Old: 9-6-1
JDaddy: 7-8-1

Week 1 NFL Picks Against an 8-Year-Old

Editor's Note: These picks were made before the games.  I just didn't get a chance to post them before the weekend.  My sincere apologies to our millions of readers.  I'll try to do better in the future.

 Like Rocky and Jason, we keep coming back, and we won't go away! Welcome to the 5th season of our experts picking against a kid.  We started when the kid was 4.  He just turned 8 yesterday.  My, how time flies.  If you're new to this, we have 4 contestants.

JDaddy - been watching football for a long time
Uncle J - been watching football for a long time
CDog - been watching football for a long time
8-Year-Old - watches football until he gets bored; then goes and does something else

The record stand as:

8-Year-Old - 2 wins (including the inaugural year when he was 4)
CDog - 1 win
JDaddy - 1 win
Uncle J - 0 wins, although he skipped the first year

We pick against the line, although the kid typically doesn't take that into account.

So, without further ado, here are our Week 1 picks.

And the 2014 Picks Winner Is...

Now that the Seahawks have thrown away the Super Bowl, and Tom Brady has joined company with Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana, we can finally announce the winner of the 4th Cheap Seats pick 'em contest against a kid. 

This year the kid did not fare too well.  However, he did finish strong.  Uncle J tried to make a comeback to finish 2nd but was just a little short.

But the winner by a mile was the founder of this website, JDaddyDu.  Congrats to him, it's been a long time coming.  

Thanks for reading, and we'll see you next year!
