We’ve made it to the final week of the regular season with our NFL picks, ladies and gentlemen.
GA Skol: 13-3 straight-up, 8-8 against the spread, 9-7 over/under Eric Thompson: 12-4 straight-up, 11-5 against the spread, 8-8 over/under Warren Ludford: 12-4 straight-up, 3-13 against the spread, 4-12 over/under Christopher Gates: 12-4 straight-up, 6-10 against the spread, 8-8 over/under Ed Brodmarkle: 8-8 straight-up, 4-12 against the spread, 9-7 over/under
Mostly a good week as far as the straight-up picks are concerned, and as usual Eric was the only one that did anything notable against the spread. He’s got those two categories wrapped up for the regular season anyway.
Cowboys at Eagles: Warren and Chris have Dallas, everyone else has Philadelphia Bears at Vikings: GA Skol has Chicago, everyone else has Minnesota Bengals at Browns: Eric has Cleveland, everyone else has Cincinnati Steelers at Ravens: Chris has Pittsburgh, everyone else has Baltimore Football Team at Giants: Ed has New York, everyone else has Washington Saints at Falcons: Eric and GA Skol have New Orleans, Ed and Chris have Atlanta Chargers at Raiders: Chris has Las Vegas, everyone else has Los Angeles
As far as our game, as you can see above the majority of us are taking the Vikings to pull out a victory in what will likely be Mike Zimmer’s last game as the team’s head coach.
GA Skol has the Vikings ending this season with a loss, but the other three of us that have their picks in already have the Vikings getting the W. We also expect the Vikings to cover the 5.5-point spread, and yours truly is the only one that doesn’t see a terribly high-scoring game on Sunday afternoon, as I’m playing the “Under” of 43.5 while everybody else has got the “Over.”
Those are our selections for the final week of the 2021 NFL regular season, folks.
