Week 8 Picks Recap
And Jon takes the lead! Yep, I made some pretty awful picks this week. I should have stayed closer to home. How we fared in week 8:
And this is where we now stand on the season:
As an interesting side-note, Jon and I were marveling this weekend at how unpredictable the Big 10 is and how much that conference has messed up our picks this season (particularly mine). I have gotten 69.6 percent of my Big 10 picks right, while Jon has gotten 78.3. That’s well below our averages for picking everyone else. We both stand at 79.5 on the season. Incorrect Big 10 picks have accounted for about 23 percent of my losses this season, and 17 percent of Jon’s.
Interesting sub-facts about those picks. Jon and I have each been perfect on Big 10 picks in two weeks (Jon in weeks two and three and me in weeks three and six). Week three had a lot of very easy calls. Big 10 picks have accounted for exactly one of Jon’s incorrect picks for each of the last five weeks. And I am 1-2 on Big 10 picks each of the last two weeks. Hopefully Iowa won’t continue to kill me.
