Week 1 NFL Picks Against a 9-Year-Old

Week 1 of the 2016 NFL season is upon us. The offseason is now a distant memory, and we are ready to kickoff another disappointing 17 weeks of being outsmarted by an elementary student.

This is our 6th year to pick games against my oldest son. He's 8 today, but he will be 9 by Sunday. Of the 5 years we have done this, he has won 3 times. JDaddy and I have each won once. We are also joined by Uncle J, who recently retired from the basketball court but can still be seen singing at a local pub near you (if local means Corpus Christi/Port A to you).

I can't stand to look,it's like a car wreck, but if you're interested, here are the final tallies from years past.

2011
2012
2013
2014
2015

Here are the overall records. I will show them two ways. 1) Since 2011 - this will only include The Kid, JDaddy, and me. 2) Since 2012 - this will include Uncle J, since he started with us in 2012. You'll notice that while the kid has won 3 outta 5, he's not on top of our all-time record. His 109-142-5 really threw him off.

Since 2011
JDaddy: 612-632-36
The Kid: 609-635-36
CDog: 609-635-36

Since 2012
JDaddy: 496-502-26
CDog: 492-506-26
The Kid: 488-510-26
Uncle J: 482-516-26

The lesson? If you want to see how a kid picks against an adult, you're in the right place. If you want advice to take to your local bookie, you are free to go somewhere else for your sports talk.

On to the picks!

2015 NFL Picks Against an 8-Year-Old - The Winner Is...

Yes, you read that right. Here it is, Opening Day of the 2016 NFL season, and I am just now getting around to posting the final results to the 2015 picks contest between us grizzled NFL experts and a little kid. I could give you all sorts of excuses as to why that happened, but it's been so long, if I did have an excuse, I can't even remember what it is. So sorry.

As I went through Week 17 to give the final tally, I realized it was good that I didn't update results. Because they were terrible. We all were terrible.

However, for the 3rd time in 5 years, the kid came out on top. It was a close race to the finish, but he held off a late season charge from JDaddy to claim the prize. Congrats to him.

Week 17 Results
JDaddy: 6-9-1
Uncle J: 6-9-1
CDog: 5-10-1
8-Year-Old: 4-11-1

Overall
8-Year-Old: 124-124-8
JDaddy: 121-127-8
Uncle J: 117-131-8
CDog: 117-131-8

Stay tuned for the first set of picks for 2016. Lets go Cowboys!
