Survivor Pool – Week 17 (2011) – 49ers or Saints?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on December 31st, 2011 | Comment »

Question: What would be a good survivor pool pick for week 17?

The first game that I like is the San Francisco 49ers over the St. Louis Rams. However, the 49ers need to be able to play for home field advantage in order for me to take this pick. My second choice would be the New Orleans Saints over the Carolina Panthers.  Although the Saints are on a short week, Drew Brees always plays well at home. My third choice would be the Atlanta Falcons over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I like the Falcons at home who are fighting for playoff position.

Of those three, what do you think is the best pick for week 17? I know a lot depends on what happens on Saturday night with team jocking for playoff position. Any advice would be appreciated. I am one or two people remaining out of 91 people. I hope I win.

Answer:

The Panthers are a dangerous team. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Panthers beat the Saints. You saw the Rams upset the Saints earlier this season. I say you stick with the 49ers. You have the best defense in the league on your side against one of the worst offenses in the National Football League. I don’t think the 49ers will be resting starters as they are still playing for playoff position. Go with the 49ers.

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 7 (2008) – Tampa Bay over Seattle?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on October 16th, 2008 | Comment »

Question:

I’m in a survivor pool and it’s down to 6 teams with $400 on the line.

The top games that I’m thinking about are:
1.) PIT – PIT -9.5 @ CIN
2.) TB – SEA @ TB – 10.5
3.) HOU – DET @ HOU – 9.5

Which game is the least likely to end up in an upset?

I don’t like the Pittsburgh Steelers they’re on the road, but they’re coming off of a bye week.

I don’t like Tampa Bay Buccaneers because if they go down early, they could have a hard time coming back. However, Seattle doesn’t have a quarterback.

I like the Texans because Detroit doesn’t have a QB, but Detroit almost pulled off the upset last week.

My weekly picks:

Week 1 – Patriots
Week 2 – Cardinals
Week 3 – Giants
Week 4 – Bills
Week 5 – Cowboys
Week 6 – Colts
Week 7 – Help Me decide

Which game would you pick?

Answer:

Take the New York Jets -3 over Oakland.  The Oakland Raiders are 3-10 at home when they’re facing a team outside the AFC West. This week Oakland is hosting the Jets and New York has covered four of their last five road games. The Jets are also 10-5 on the road when they are favored and facing a non-division opponent. New York is coming off of a 12-point win over the Browns while the Raiders just got crushed by 31 points against the Saints. That loss against the Saints saw Oakland getting outgained by over 200 yards and things could stay ugly for the Raiders.
