NFL Week 8 Deadly-Accurate Expert Picks and Predictions and Week 7 Recap

Our Week 8 “expert” NFL picks and predictions have been posted and are available for your viewing pleasure on our “Beat the House” contest page. The Week 7 “Beat the House” recap is below.

After not even coming close to beating the readers in the first five weeks of the 2011 NFL season, there was a push in week 7 at 9 correct picks a piece. Finally, for the first time this season, the House defended it’s title and bested the membership in our “Beat the House” competition… barely.

By the smallest of margins, a half of a correct pick to be exact, the House won week 7. The half win came as a result of the Bucs-Bears games in London being a deadlock in voting at 50/50, therefore the members neither won nor lost the game.
