Week 10 2018 NFL Picks Against an 11-Year-Old

Any of you ever been to the horse races? Well I have. And the worst feeling is picking a horse, waiting 30 minutes for post time, getting excited about the start, and then watching your horse fall further and further behind the pack and lose by 30 lengths. By the time your horse crosses the finish line they're already lining up the next race.

That's how I feel about my picks each week. I'm that horse that's just lagging behind with no clear direction, falling further and further behind the pack.

But that's not the case for everyone else. JDaddy and Uncle J put up a good week in Week 9, but The Kid felt the heat and put up a good week as well.

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

Overall
11-Year-Old: 67-62-5
Uncle J: 65-64-5
JDaddy: 63-66-5
CDog: 55-74-5

Week 6 2018 NFL Picks Against an 11-Year-Old

The Kid continues his roll. It's been quite a week for him. Goes 9-5-1 and takes a trip to Disney World.

But the Magic Kingdom isn't forever, and it's now time to get back to real life, which for me includes missing a bunch of NFL picks.

Also, today was our JDRF Walk day to raise money for a cure to Type 1 Diabetes, something The Kid has battled since he was 2 years old. Unfortunately, a massive storm forced the walk to be cancelled. However, you can still donate if you'd like. Here is the link.

On to the picks...

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

Overall

Week 4 2018 NFL Picks Against An 11 Year Old

After 3 weeks the NFL has proven to be difficult to predict. Buffalo beating Minnesota? Detroit beating New England? Obviously, the fact that our amazing prognosticators are all below .500 means that it's the league that's all screwed up. Not us.

Right?

Week 3
11-Year-Old: 8-8
CDog: 8-8
Uncle J: 6-10
JDaddy: 5-11

Overall
11-Year-Old: 23-24-1
JDaddy: 21-26-1
Uncle J: 18-29-1
CDog: 17-30-1

Week 2 2018 NFL Picks Against An 11-Year-Old

Week 1 had a lot of unexpected results. Or maybe we're just not very good at picking games. Hopefully we get this thing turned around in a hurry!

The Kid has jumped out to an early lead. But what does he know?

11-Year-Old: 7-8-1
JDaddy: 6-9-1
Uncle J: 5-10-1

Week 1 2018 NFL Picks Against an 11-Year-Old

It's 99 degrees today in Arlington, TX. Who's ready for some football?!

Our pick 'em contest against a kid continues on for its 8th season, and this time The Kid is firmly a pre-teen. What does that mean? It means that he sometimes makes his picks with a sneer. :)

I'm joking. Sort of.

Anyway, yours truly won his second championship last year by holding off Uncle J down the stretch.

Overall, The Kid leads with the most championships with 3. Uncle J and JDaddy have each won once.

Whether the North Texas weather cools down or not, it's finally football season. Lets get to it!
