Survivor Picks - Week 2
Our Survivor picks this year will be twofold. We’ll recommend two choices every week, a safe one and a not so safe one. The problem with playing the popular pick or the biggest point-spread favorite is that when that team loses, you go down with a high percentage of the pool and if they keep on winning all year, the pool will be split several ways. A mix of both and avoiding potential upsets is not a bad strategy either. One of our cardinal rules is to never play road teams because big road favs get beat too often and when one inevitably goes down, it will knock out a good percentage of participants and you don’t want to be one of them.
Week 1 safe pick – Buffalo √ ---- Week 1 not so safe pick – Minnesota √
Week 2 safe pick – Oakland over N.Y. Jets
There is plenty to choose from this week, as Oakland, Seattle, Baltimore, Carolina and Tampa Bay figure to get some play. While the Seahawks look like a virtual lock to win outright, we’re going with the Raiders because the Jets simply cannot trade punches with this team on their best day. Furthermore, Oakland’s schedule gets real tough after this week so this becomes their easiest scheduled game of the season.
As for our “gamble play” of the week, there are simply too many good options to gamble this week on short priced teams to win outright so there is not any reason to gamble. This week, take Seattle or Oakland and move on to Week 3. Carolina, Tampa Bay and to a lesser degree, Baltimore are not locks from our vantage point.
Week 2 Survivor picks are Oakland and Oakland.
