Welp, that whole undefeated thing didn’t last very long.
After a 5-0 week to start the season and the inside track to $1M dollar in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship, Simon Hunter and I had a little tiny stumble in Week 2. Rather, Cam Newton had a stumble at the goal-line. So instead of a respectable 3-2 run in Week 2, we finished 2-3.
Have no fear, we are still in the Top 40 and in the money.
As I’ve said, every week this NFL season on The Favorites podcast Hunter, a professional bettor, will join me to chronicle his quest to win the DK title.
But, in case you missed the pod or have never heard of the pod, how about some free NFL picks and predictions! Because I’m a giver, here are the games Simon and I loved when we spoke, as well as other games Simon plans on betting but won’t make the cut in the DraftKings contest. If you want the analysis so you can, you know, get smart, you’ll have to listen to the pod.
One caveat, lines are always moving. And he won’t lock his picks in the contest until Sunday morning. Follow “Simon Hunter” in the Action app to see where he lands before games kickoff.
