Picking against Colin, errr Fisch

Those that follow Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio know that he does his Sizzlin' Seven picks each Friday.  I like to see how my computer measures up so I've gone back to see how the computer did in the same games and have also sent my picks in to him the past 3 weeks.  No response yet, but perhaps that is because for the year the computer is ahead!

Here is how the results have compared this year:
  • Week 1 - 3-4 (Colin was 2-5)
  • Week 2 - 4-3 (3-4)
  • Week 3 - 2-5 (5-2)
  • Week 4 - 6-1 (4-3)
  • Week 5 - 4-3 (2-5)
  • Week 6 - 4-3 (2-5)
  • Week 7 - 4-3 (3-4)
  • Week 8 - 3-4 (3-4)
  • Week 9 - 4-3 (4-3, note these were Fisch's picks)
  • Totals - 34-29 (28-35)
This weeks picks are:
  • Falcons -9.5 - Agree on the pick, Atlanta should blow them out.
  • Packers -10 - Agree again, but not a blowout at all, computer picks Green Bay by 10.8.
  • Chargers +5 - Agree again, this can't be right!  Still picks the Giants to win by 1.2 though.
  • Dallas +3 - Finally, don't agree!  Philly, but only by 1.4.
  • Virginia +13.5 - Computer picks Miami by 11.8.
  • Duke +10 - Computer picks UNC by only 3.8.
  • Penn State -4.5 - Computer likes them by 5.3.
We'll see if the computer can extend its lead!
