My pick: listed first. Home team: CAPS. Post-game comments in italics.
After a dismal showing this regular season I’ve done quite well the past few weeks. So far this playoffs I’m 8-4 against the spread and 11-1 straight-up.
The questions I’ve been toiling with this week are – “Can Tom do it again?” and “Am I crazy to root against Mahomes?” I don’t think there are any stats or advance metrics that can answer either one of those questions, and so it’s a matter of heart. And my heart says Tom Brady is the GOAT. The one thing I’ve learned watching football for most of my life is this, never bet against Tom Brady.
BUCCANEERS +3. vs. Chiefs ✅ All hail the King
What a great playoff run. I went 9-4 against the spread and 12-1 straight up. My only loss came when I broke my own rule, never bet against Tom Brady.
Playoffs to date (weeks 1-4): 9-4
