Week 10 NFL Picks

Last night's Ravens @ Falcons game got us into an 0-1 hole to start our Week 10 Picks.  The point spread was not even an issue, as I got this tweet out a couple of hours before game time:
"Although I love the "You are still Cleveland to us. You still stink" sign, I would take the #Ravens tonight."
This gambling thing is really a big hoax.  Over time, every consistent gambler should basically be up or down within a standard variation of their average gambling amount.  The hook is with the addiction of impulsion.  For the most part, we love the adrenaline, the rush.  So, it's rare to handle the required discipline to know when to say when.

"I just have this chemical imbalance
almost like an allergy to alcohol.
It just makes me crazy!"
Just as Kim Basinger would lose control if she drank in Blind Date, most people gambling lose control.  They reach that tipping point somewhere along the line.

Most people take a team they shouldn't, back the wrong cards at a table, or build a parlay that's a little too ambitious.

With a healthy dose of self control, we present to you our Week 10 NFL Picks, brought to us by our proud sponsor: Prestige Worldwide, wide... wide... wide...

"Investors?  Maybe You!"
