Week 8: Magic 8-Ball’s Football Pick ‘Em
With the KATS 2018 Pro Football Pick 'Em contest underway, brought to you by Yakima Steak Co., Todd and I have a little bet to see who will do better -- his knowledge of football, stats, teams and history, or my use of the dark arts ... i.e. a Magic 8 Ball. After the first seven weeks, the Magic 8 Ball, hasn't done horrible, dropping in percentage from last week but sitting at 56-51 with a 52.34 winning percentage. Definitely better than my brother from another mother... and father, John Riggs (41-66) and our broadcasting brother from the country station Gunner (36-71). Week 7, I/Magic 8 Ball had our worst week for this run, getting only five games correct this week. So I don't know if I shook the lil' wizard inside the ball too hard or if he took a vacation (I'm not sure how the 8 Ball works), but it's been sucking lately. This week looks to be interesting because it voted for every home team sans one! Check out the stats and my picks below.
Now for previous weeks I've alternated how I asked. Odd Weeks I ask if the Home Team will win, and Even Weeks I ask if it'll be the visiting team. How I ask, simple, "Oh Magic 8 Ball, will _____________ defeat ______________." Here's my/Magic 8's Week 8 pick em's! Check out previous weeks below.
Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, Week 6, Week 7
