Believe it or not, a quarter of the 2011 NFL regular season has come and gone already. More unbelievable is the fact that our expert prognosticator, the “House” in our “Beat the House” contest, is 0 for 4 to start a season for the first time… ever. Our boy Cletus is in his sophomore year as the TMR expert and the Vegas odds of him returning for his junior year have dropped to 20 to 1.
Still, the beat goes on and the week 5 picks and predictions have been posted and are waiting for your approval or disapproval. Click the link below to get to the “Beat the House” entry page to see all of the House week 5 picks as well as the point spreads for all of this week’s games.
There is still plenty of football left to pick, but a 4-week, 10 pick deficit is pretty hard to overcome. Week 4 was the worst yet for the House as four picks were in the balance and all four did not end up the way the House predicted. We still don’t know how the Giants pulled their game off, but in the record books it is still a loss.
Since the House was beaten, the member with the best pick set will receive a movie prize pack and a care package from AXE Hair. This week it looks like member sender picked all 16 games correctly. Good job! That is no small feat. If you did the before the recession we’d have a super awesome prize for you… but since PR budgets are still low you’ll have to settle for a greasy hanshake from Cletus.
The rest of week 5 went as follows:
|*||The House||Madden Sim||Members|
The overall tally in 2011 now is Members 3, House 0, Madden NFL Sim 1.
Votes are already pouring in for week 5 so make sure you enter yours before the deadline… kickoff of the 1:00pm EST games on Sunday.
Stay tuned for when we announce the results for NFL player of the week and find out of any member was able to correctly guess them and win the Jagermeister Cooler!
