Don's Crystal Ball Week 8 Pick's

THE DON'S
Crystal Ball
2008 SEASON
WEEK 8 PICKS

By DonCanabis/D'BOYZ
Analyst/Godfather

I think the damn Crystal Ball is broken. I must run to the pottery barn and get me a new one..... this past two weeks have been brutal.

This week the difference was that there were many close games to call that we all knew that could go either way. Buf vs SD, Ind vs GB, NO vs CA and Bal vs Mia.... in this 4 games it was hard to call the winner and in all 4 cases I went with the hot hand the teams that were playing better right now, in all 4 cases it came back to kick me in the ass.

There were 2 surprises, the first was Dallas I gave Brad Johnson the benefit of the doubt and didn't gave enough credit to St. Louis, I new there was a big chance Dallas wouldn't cover the spread but never did I thought they would get roll over like that. The other surprise was NYJ vs OAk.... for me this was a shoe in, Favre had been playing great the past couple of weeks, came from a bye and oakland looked worse with cable at coach if that was possible.

You get weeks like this when things just don't go your way..... some were great calls like. Ten, Pit and NYG covering the big spreads, the chicago game which also was an expecting close game and the Houston game which everyone expected them to cover the spread against a bad Detroit team.

Sometimes the chips don't fall in your way but knowing you were right in some hard calls is a bright spot that you're going in the right direction. It's always like this when you gamble some times it's just not your night.

Sorry guys having trouble with the column this week can't seem to get to up all the comments so I'll just post the picks. Next week I'll have it fix.

Really not too many diffeerences w/ the exception of the Dallas (sighs) & Miami game. A few on the Ovr/Und picks. Anyways...just for fun to compare.
Under your Hot Picks you have San Diego & Pitsburgh....are those your "lock" games of the week? Curious because I see those as being two games that could definitely go either way.

Yeah those half point spreads are the death.... a really bad week for my part and yes those 6 hot picks are my locks the first 3 are the ones I pick for the league I run but I use 6 picks each week for the column.
