NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 10
by T.O. Whenham - 11/9/2010
It was a decent week last week in our efforts to pick straight up winners for NFL office pool picks. It could have been better, but then I don’t feel bad at all about not picking the Browns to beat up on the Patriots. If you saw that one coming in the way that it happened, you live on a different planet than I do. Here’s how this week’s game set up. Remember that the Ravens and Falcons play the battle of the birds on Thursday night, so you need to get your picks in early this week:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 9
by T.O. Whenham - 11/3/2010
Last week we won more games than we lost, but it wasn’t pretty. Let’s do better this week. There are six teams on a bye again this week - Denver, Tennessee, St. Louis, San Francisco, Washington, and Jacksonville. Remember, we are picking straight up winners here for these NFL office pool picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 8
by T.O. Whenham - 10/27/2010
With this week we are almost halfway through the NFL season. This is the lightest schedule of the year to date because six teams - Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, the Giants, and Philadelphia - will be enjoying their bye week. Here’s how i see the games for the 26 active teams turning out:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 7
by T.O. Whenham - 10/20/2010
This past week in the NFL made more sense than some of the ones that came before it, but there were still some odd outcomes - with the Rams over the Chargers chief among them. That game proved at least three things - anything can happen in this league, passing offense and wins aren’t always linked, and Norv Turner is dangerously incompetent. Last week was more successful for my NFL office pool picks as well. Hopefully this week is even better:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 6
by T.O. Whenham - 10/13/2010
Last week was a very rough week for my NFL office pool picks. Thankfully it was also a rough week for the large majority of others as well because it was such a strange week. Tampa Bay over the Bengals on the road? The Cardinals over the Saints with an undrafted rookie QB? The Raiders over the Chargers? Strange week. Here’s hoping that this week makes more sense. The Bills, Bengals, Cardinals, and Panthers are on their bye weeks. Here’s how the week sets up:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 5
by T.O. Whenham - 10/6/2010
This week the teams with the bye are Miami, New England, Seattle, and Pittsburgh. That means that we should enjoy this week for one big reason - it’s a week of sweet relief before we have to listen to the endless Big Ben talk when he returns next week. Here’s how I see the games this week breaking down with my NFL office pool picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 4
by T.O. Whenham - 9/28/2010
It has been yet another strange start to the NFL season. Who really thought that when the Chiefs and Niners played in Week 3 it would be the Chiefs who were unbeaten and the Niners who were winless? Or that the Kevin Kolb era would last just minutes, and Michael Vick would play better than he ever has before? Or that Chicago would be the only undefeated team in the NFC after just three games? Or that Austin Collie and Brandon Lloyd would be the leading receivers in the league? Strange times. It wasn’t a very good week here when it came to my NFL Office Pool Picks, but picking St. Louis to pull off the upset eased some of the pain.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 3
by T.O. Whenham - 9/21/2010
It was another interesting week in the NFL last week - a lot of results made sense, but a few didn’t. More significantly, a couple of teams that were supposed to be very good continue to confound. We had a solid week last week picking straight up winners for our NFL office pool picks - not great, but solid. Let’s do better this week:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 2
by T.O. Whenham - 9/14/2010
That was a very strange first week of the NFL. Every time you think you have the league figured out it throws you some curve balls. There was a lot of strangeness in the opening week, but that’s all what makes the NFL so great. That being said, hopefully this week goes a bit more according to plan:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 1
by T.O. Whenham - 9/6/2010
The NFL season is finally here - or at least it will be on Thursday. That means a lot of things, and all of them are good. One of the greatest parts of the great NFL is the annual tradition of the office pool. As we have the last couple of years, we’re going to help you out with your NFL office pool picks by picking a winner for every game all season - straight up, not against the spread. Without further ado, we have NFL office pool picks for Week 1:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 17
by T.O. Whenham - 12/28/2009
I love football, but I barely consider Week 17 of the NFL season to be football. I hate it. There are a few games that mean a lot, but in so many more the teams don't have anything to play for, and they just don't care. That makes picking NFL office pool picks winners hard to do - it's even more of a guessing game than normal, and you need to be an amateur psychologist to figure it all out.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 16
by T.O. Whenham - 12/22/2009
It wasn't a great week last week thanks to some unexpected and truly bizarre games. Dallas? Oakland?!? Tampa Bay?! Carolina?!?!? I hope that this week will be a better one, though I'm not totally optimistic. The last couple weeks of the NFL season are so hard to call because you can never be sure of he motivation of teams and the intensity that those with little to play for will play with.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 15
by T.O. Whenham - 12/16/2009
Last week looked like a reasonably straight forward week on paper and, with the possible exception of the Monday Night Football game, it turned out just that way. Let's hope that this week goes as well. As always, these picks are straight up, not against the spread:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 14
by T.O. Whenham - 12/8/2009
Sometimes it's like you know what is going to happen before it happens - like your making picks after practically knowing what is going to happen. Last week was definitely not one of those weeks. It wasn't a total disaster, but there were more than a couple unexpected results that I didn't see coming. We're going to do better this week - saying it makes it so.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 13
by T.O. Whenham - 12/1/2009
It was a solid week last week - one of those ones that makes you feel like you like you have this whole NFL office pool picks thing figured out. That's almost always a dangerous sentiment, but let's go with it anyway. Here's what we have in Week 13 - a week that seems set up for us to do well. Remember, these picks are straight up as always, not against the spread.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 12
by T.O. Whenham - 11/24/2009
It was a solid but not spectacular week last time around - 11 winners. We didn't have any of the big upsets, but I'm okay with that. You can call me overly conservative if you want, but I don't think that there is a lot of upside in chasing major upsets in office pools. You look like a hero when you are right, but you'll be wrong more often than not, and a slow, steady winning rate is almost always more successful than a risky one over the course of a long season. Boring, but true.
NFL Office Pool Picks – Week 11
by T.O. Whenham - 11/17/2009
There are no more bye weeks. That means that we have more games this week for our NFL office pool picks than we have had in a long while. Hopefully that means we will pick more straight up winners as well:
NFL Office Pool Picks – Week 10
by T.O. Whenham - 11/10/2009
This is, thankfully, the last of the bye weeks for this year. That means that we are back to a full NFL schedule next week. More games means more opportunities for bettors, more games for fans to watch, and a generally better Sunday. This is also the first week that we have seen a Thursday night game since week one, so make sure that you get your NFL office pool picks in on time.
NFL Office Pool Picks – Week 9
by T.O. Whenham - 11/3/2009
The Falcons are on a bit of a slide, and Matt Ryan isn't looking particularly good right now. That's a concern. Or at least it would be if they were playing a real team. Washington is coming off a bye week, but I'm not convinced that they could fix what is ailing them if they had a month off. Atlanta needs a boost of confidence, so this home game comes at just the right time.
NFL Office Pool Picks – Week 8
by T.O. Whenham - 10/27/2009
Back at it - another week of picking straight up winners in the NFL. Here's hoping that this week provides a more interesting set of games. Six of 12 Sunday games last week were decided by at least four touchdowns - talk about a cure for insomnia.
