Usually for NFL bettors, Week 1 is a guinea pig week. You don’t play it too big and kind of feel out how teams play to begin the new season. At Armchair, we don’t play those games. Every single point matters. In fact, we have added another member to our NFL Pick’Em ranks in our editor in chief Alex Reynolds. His picks were not recorded last week, but he had the honor and integrity to send me a screenshot of his picks before Thursday’s game:
Alex seemed a little confused on the plus and minus of spreads, which is probably a good thing for the rest of us. As for the rest of the the crew, Patrick Mahomes and Ryan Fitzmagic took us all by surprise with their respective performances and wins as road underdogs. We have a three-way tie for first place between NFL Draft wizard Rob Paul, Eagles‘ writer Matt Martellucci and Buccaneers‘ writer Alex Koslow, who all went 10-5-1. Behind them are two writers at 9-5-1 with plenty of picks to come this year.
As for this week, two games will be missing from the list. At the time of the picks being compiled, the Texans at Titans spread is not available because of Marcus Mariota‘s status for Sunday. The Vikings and Packers spread obviously depends on the health of Aaron Rodgers. We will have those picks included in the season archives and you’ll get an update on those when we do. So, here are some more picks in the Week 2 edition of the Armchair NFL Pick’Em.
