NFL Office Pool Picks Week 1
by Trevor Whenham - 9/1/2014
We are finally — FINALLY — at the start of the NFL season. That means different things to different people. One of the biggest things to me is that I have another chance to win the office pool. Another shot at bragging rights. Another chance to gloat mercilessly. Another chance to get lucky and pretend it is all skill. It’s what the NFL is all about.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 17
by Trevor Whenham - 12/24/2013
We have made it — the last weekend of the NFL season and the last weekend for office pools everywhere. I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of looking forward to the end. This has been a haywire season — harder than normal to get a sense of. Time for what should be a wide-open and exciting playoff run. Without further ado, the last straight up office pools picks of the year:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 16
by Trevor Whenham - 12/17/2013
We’re in the home stretch of the NFL season. Just two more weeks remaining. There will be a lot of garbage games next week, but there is actually a lot to like this week — and far less need to close our eyes and gamble as there was last week. Here’s how the 16 games set up for our office pools this week:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 15
by Trevor Whenham - 12/10/2013
Every week we offer free NFL office pool picks to help you win your office pool. As always, all of our free picks are without the point spread, and these will be posted on Doc’s Sports homepage every Tuesday during the NFL regular season. The following are this week’s office pool picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 14
by Trevor Whenham - 12/3/2013
We’re heading into the home stretch — week 14 of 17 on the year. This is when office pools are won or lost. Some teams are desperate for wins and are playing at full intensity. Others are dreaming of the offseason’s merciful arrival. The trick is to know which is which. Here’s how I see this week playing out for you office pool players:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 13
by Trevor Whenham - 11/25/2013
This is the definition of parity. We are at the point in this season where pretty much no result we see can really surprise us anymore. Bucs over the Lions? Sure. Chargers winning in Kansas City? Why not. Cards crushing the Colts? Broncos taking the second half off? I can’t be surprised anymore.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 12
by Trevor Whenham - 11/19/2013
There were not many major surprises last week in the NFL. Only the Steelers over the Lions qualifies as a reasonably big one in my eyes, and the odds don’t really suggest it was much of an upset at all. Again this week we have a reasonably straightforward looking week -- at least from where we sit now. Here’s how I see the week playing out for office pools:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 11
by Trevor Whenham - 11/11/2013
There is absolutely nothing good to say about last week’s office pool picks. The Rams?!?!?! The Jaguars?!?!? Ugh. Forget and move on. Here’s how I see the 15 games on the schedule playing out this week for straight up picks for NFL office pools:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 10
by Trevor Whenham - 11/5/2013
Two weeks ago things mostly made a lot of sense in the NFL. Last week wasn’t quite as straightforward. The very good Saints getting solidly beaten by the Jets? Didn’t have that. Nick Foles with seven touchdown passes? Nope. Seattle needing overtime at home against the Bucs? That was just strange. Miami getting past the Bengals?
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 9
by Trevor Whenham - 10/28/2013
Last week in the NFL was what was needed for office pool players — a week that mostly went as expected. Some may not have had the Giants winning two in a row or the Cowboys being that determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, but most of the games turned out as they were reasonably expected to. You can never really tell in advance, but this week’s games also look as if they are more straightforward than the league is capable of being at times. Here’s my straight up picks for all 13 games on tap for this week:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 8
by Trevor Whenham - 10/25/2013
Another week, another set of straight up office pool picks. I don’t even want to talk about last week because there were too many strange things for my taste — or at least for the health of my picks. It’s a whole new week, though, and I like how this card sets up. Following are my straight up picks for Week 8 NFL office pools.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 7
by Trevor Whenham - 10/14/2013
Last week was a strange week — mostly predictable, but with a couple of real head scratchers. In other words, it was just another week in the NFL. This week promises more of the same. It’s weeks like these — not stunningly difficult but far from easy — that separate the office pool pretenders from the contenders. Here’s how the week plays out:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 6
by Trevor Whenham - 10/7/2013
Last week’s games weren’t perfect for me and the health of my office pools — far from it, in fact. These things happen, though, and it certainly could have been worse. This week is somewhat clearer, and things will be much better. Here is the way this week’s games break down, and the straight up picks for each contest:
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 5
by Matt Severance - 10/2/2013
What's the biggest upset of the year? The Titans winning at Pittsburgh in Week 1? Now we know how awful the Steelers really are. How about Cleveland winning at Minnesota in Week 3? Or Indianapolis surprising the 49ers in San Francisco? I don't think those qualify as huge upsets. I don't think this will be the week where we see another large upset, either.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 5
by Trevor Whenham - 10/1/2013
Early in the late afternoon slate of games on Sunday, I was pretty sure I was in trouble. In a sign of how things can and do change, though, by the time games were settled things had turned out pretty well. Sometimes you just need to be lucky and patient, I guess. The nice thing about last weekend is that I don’t really regret the ones I got wrong, either — always a good sign.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 4
by Trevor Whenham - 9/24/2013
There are many weeks during the course of the NFL season in which you feel like you know what is going on. You had suspicions about how games would turn out, you made the picks in your office pool, and you were right far more than you were wrong. This past week was absolutely not one of those weeks. Ouch. I didn’t see Cleveland waking from the dead. Or the Giants being that bad. Or the Ravens laying a major beatdown on the Texans. Or the 49ers forgetting how to play football.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 3
by Trevor Whenham - 9/17/2013
Last week was a solid week — 11 wins — and would have been better if I had maintained my faith in the Dolphins and Chargers and had given up on the Panthers instead. Lessons learned, and now we can apply them to this week. On the surface this seems like the most straightforward week we have seen yet in our pursuit of Office Pool glory. Here are my straight up picks for the week:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 2
by Trevor Whenham - 9/10/2013
It was a solid first week for me in office pools —12 wins that should have been 13 if someone had told new San Diego coach Mike McCoy that his team has to play for four quarters. Now that we know a little more about what to expect from teams than we did last week, let’s see if we can improve on that with these straight up picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 1
by Trevor Whenham - 9/2/2013
It’s time for another NFL season. Finally. That also means that it is the season for office pools. Egos and reputations are on the line as friends and co-workers duel to show who knows more about football and who can pick more winners from week to week. It’s office warfare. To help you claim your rightful place atop the heap at the end of the season, I’m going to help you out by providing a straight up winner for every game played all season.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 17
by Trevor Whenham - 12/24/2012
It seems like this season has gone on forever, and so much that we thought we knew back when it started has changed now. Just think about some of the highlights and lowlights -- the replacement refs, the return of Peyton, the rise of the rookie quarterbacks, the brutal collapse of the Eagles and Chiefs, tragedy following tragedy, Chuckstrong - it goes on and on. Through it all we’ve managed to pick more winners than losers, and that’s really the point of it all. In hopes of finishing on a strong note despite facing a tough week where it’s so hard to know what to expect from too many teams with no pressing need to win, here are the straight up picks for the last 16 games of the 2012 NFL regular season:
