The votes (picks) are in and if this truly is a democracy we live in, then our home town favorites will be coming home 2-0. As I mentioned here yesterday, I like the Redskins to win and cover the spread. But what about the rest of the “experts” out there.
Peter King over at SI.com agrees, picking the Redskins to win 23-20.
At ESPN 11 of the 12 experts pick Washington to win in St. Louis. So do those that play Pigskin Pick’em on that site, and Accuscore says, the Redskins would win this matchup almost two-thirds of the time. Unfortunately that thorn in the side of ESPN is Wickersham, who just happens to lead everyone on that site at picking winners.
At NFL.com, Sessler is the only one picking the Rams to win, while four are picking the Redskins. Again, the sole person picking the home team is also the one with the best record.
Over at Yahoo Sports, the three writers and the users of Yahoo unanimously pick the Redskins.
The lone place the Lambs should look for sheltor is at CBS Sports where five of their eight experts pick the home team, but the “Machine” does pick the Rams to win.
In total, that’s 25 picking the Redskins, and 7 picking the Rams. So what do you think?
