Daily Blurb
Time to think about the weekend NFL games. In Football Pickoff, New Orleans is currently a 55/45 favorite over the Vikings. In the other game, Indy is favored 80/20 over the Jets. As the current leader in the Pickoff standings, I知 having great difficulty deciding how to pick the Indy game. At any other time in the season, I壇 pick the Jets, as I think they have a better than 20% chance to pull off the upset. But I also think Indy has a much better than 50% chance to win, and in my current standings position (with a small lead and only 3 games left in the season), an argument can be made that I should now be picking the favorite in a lopsided game. I知 still not sure what I値l do, but I値l have to decide soon. Obviously, I知 not prize-eligible, but it would still be cool to pull this off.

Of course, it値l probably turn out that the NFC game will be the deciding factor. It痴 always possible that all of the contenders will pick the AFC game the same way.

Enough stressing over that. In the NBA, Thursday痴 marquis game was the Lakers at Cavs. While the Cavs won a close one, LeBron was the only player on either team to put up a complete fantasy stat line, with 37 points, 9 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, a block, and 58.5 TSNP. Kobe did score 31 real points, but only managed 28 TSNP. Pao Gasol was the top price gainer in the TSN game, but managed only 23.5 TSNP a clear case of 塗igh-buyer-syndrome. Actually, the top producer for the Lakers was Lamar Odom, who managed 33 TSNP as the only Laker to post a double-double.

As a Jets fan, even I don't believe they can beat the Colts in Indy.

Regarding Football Pickoff, not that I have ever done it, but there is another option that sometimes helps this time of year with so few games left: No pick.

That's correct. But with a fairly slight lead and 4-5 teams within range, that seems like a losing option in this instance. It's unreasonable to expect that all of those teams will pick poorly.
