Look at us! 2 weeks in a row with no losers! After all these years, we finally know what we're doing.

One quick reminder. Our JDRF One Walk is tomorrow! We have crossed the $10,000 fundraising mark and have our all-time high of $13,000 in our sights. If you would like to help us get there, you can do so here: Eli's Encouragers JDRF Team.

If you'll be in the Fort Worth area on Saturday morning, 10/14/17, come join us!

Thanks for your support!

Week 5 2017 NFL Picks Against A 10-Year-Old

Before we get to the amazing week we had at The Cheap Seats Pick 'Em Headquarters, I want to make sure to remind you about the Type 1 Diabetes walk that we have coming up in support of The Kid. Go here to support our team: Eli's Encouragers JDRF Team. We are closing in on $10,000! Help us get to $13,000, which would be more than ever!

Thanks for your support!

Now, on to the picks. Wow, what a week we had. We all picked more winners than losers, but Uncle J continues to show that retirement suits him, as he apparently does nothing except handicap football games.

He also was aided by the craziest cover ever. Did you see this: Chiefs cover.

That crazy play was a 2 game difference, as Uncle J was the only one to pick Kansas City. The moral, once again? Don't bet on football. Unless you had the Chiefs. Then good going.

On to this week!

Week 4
Uncle J: 13-3
10-Year-Old: 10-6
JDaddy: 10-6
CDog: 9-7


Overall
Uncle J: 37-25-1
CDog: 35-27-1
10-Year-Old: 27-35-1
JDaddy: 27-35-1

Week 4 2017 NFL Picks Against a 10-Year-Old

Heading into the end of the Week 2, JDaddy was frantic. He was sitting at 2-10 for the week, and the bookies were walking up to the front porch. Fortunately for him, he won 3 of the last 4 games to stave off a date with the fishes for another week.

By some stroke of magic, your faithful reporter picked 11 games right. The html gods must have been smiling on me and switched out some picks or something before I hit "Publish."

The bigger miracle, though, is that after 3 weeks we have 2 of us over .500. Christmas has come early.

NOW!!! A quick break in the action. Many of you know that the 10-year-old kid lives with Type 1 Diabetes. Each year we participate in a walk to raise a lot of money to finding a cure for this disease. If you would like to participate, either by walking with us, donating money, or both, you may do so here: Eli's Encouragers JDRF Team

Thanks for your support!

Week 2
CDog: 11-5
Uncle J: 8-8
10-Year-Old: 7-9
JDaddy: 5-11


Overall
CDog: 26-20-1
Uncle J: 24-22-1
10-Year-Old: 17-29-1
JDaddy: 17-29-1

Week 2 2017 NFL Picks Against a 10-Year-Old

You know, my original title of this page said "5-year-old" instead of "10-year-old." I can't believe it's been that long since we've been picking games.

Week 1 wasn't spectacular for us here at the Cheap Seats, but at least one of us came out ahead.

Sorry this is out late. It was a heat-filled baseball weekend!

Week 1
Uncle J: 8-6-1
CDog: 7-7-1
10-Year-Old: 6-8-1
JDaddy: 4-10-1


Overall
Uncle J: 8-6-1
CDog: 7-7-1
10-Year-Old: 6-8-1
JDaddy: 4-10-1

Week 1 2017 NFL Picks Against a 10 Year Old...We're Back!

It's that time of year again! The weather is cooling, baseball teams are chasing after pennants, Kevin Sumlin is mismanaging the clock, and the NFL is back!

Uncle J won his first Cheap Seats Pick 'Em Contest last year, and he's off to a good start already this year, as he was the only one of us to predict that Alex Smith would outperform Tom Brady.

I had a little bit more to add, but my car died today so I spent the day being shuttled around getting it fixed. It all worked out though. The repairs weren't too costly, and having a serpentine belt die allowed my mechanic to see that my brakes were about to go out.

See, it's just a happy time of year. But enough about me, lets get to the games....

Final Results - 2016 NFL Picks Against a 9-Year-Old

It's January 4th, 2017. Today was a time for The Kid to go back to school. Time for me to go back to work. And here at The Cheap Seats, it's a time for us to once again crown a champion that lost more than he won.

But before I announce the winner, I want you to take a look at this link for a meaningless touchdown in a meaningless game. If this doesn't happen, we would have ended up in a tie. The lesson learned? Don't bet your hard-earned money on people you've never met.

The Winner Is:
