    A Fool and His Money – Week 4

    by  • October 4, 2009 • Best Bets • 2 Comments

    Bengals (-5.5) over BROWNS The Bengals beat the Packers and Steelers in back-to-back games. The Browns finally benched Ms. Quinn, but Derek Anderson somehow managed to play worse in his second half debut. I have to imagine it’s tough for anybody to like the Browns in this one. Lions (+10) over BEARS The first...

    A Fool and His Money – Week 2

    Editor’s Note: Yes, we’re a little late with this one, and yes, it’s probably better if you don’t listen to Nick’s picks anyway. We’ll post them now just so we can still hold him accountable for his mistakes. Texans (+7) over TITANS I want to choose the Titans in this one, but for some...

    A Fool and His Money – Week 1

    by  • September 12, 2009 • Best Bets • 3 Comments

    Week 1 is my favorite week to make bets. You get to trust your gut more than any other week of the season, and you feel extremely smug when your predictions come true. But the first games are also full of questions. Which teams developed chemistry over the offseason? Who will exceed expectations, and...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 17

    by  • December 27, 2008 • Best Bets • 0 Comments

    It’s craziness in Week 17. Will the playoff teams even bother to start their studs? Will the backups be decent when they get in there? We can attempt to negotiate through the darkness of the last week of the season, but in reality, we’ll just be happy to be at .500 for the season...

    Nick’s picking solo once again this week as everything starts to get sketchy here at the end of the season. Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys Ravens (+4) over COWBOYS This game could decide who gets into the playoffs. It’s tough to pick against Dallas at home, but I do think the Ravens are the...

    Jacob here. I guess it’s time for us to stop covering up the deep, dark secret we’ve been hiding for the last several weeks. You see, we killed Chadam. It’s not that he was doing a terrible job picking spreads each week … well, actually, he really was falling off there near the end,...

    A Fool and His Money in Week 14

    Note from Jacob: Somehow, after a rager of a game of Monopoly — yes, we are five years old — and a weekend of fantasy football talk, we got Chadam to disagree with Nick on some of this week’s picks. Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers Fools Take: CHARGERS (-9) over Raiders Nick says:...

    While your fantasy season might be coming to an end, there are still plenty of spreads to be picked. Here’s how it’s going down this week… Tennessee Titans at Detroit Lions Fools Take: Titans (-10.5) over LIONS Nick says: How about a round of applause for the Tennessee Titans? Nobody expected an undefeated season,...

    We haven’t had a lot of fancy talk here at the top of “A Fool and His Money” these last few weeks, but that’s because, just like any NFL franchise, we focus during this part of the season. The games start to matter more, and we’re ready to get down to business. Let’s not...

    It’s go time. Once again, a ‘$’ marks all of Nick’s locks of the week while a ‘#’ marks all of Chadam’s locks. Thursday Night Football: New York Jets at New England Patriots SPLIT DECISION! Chadam Takes: Jets (+3) over PATRIOTS Nick Takes: PATRIOTS (-3) over Jets In taking the Jets, Chadam says: I’ll...
