Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 14

And just as quickly as I took back the lead, I bid it farewell once again.

Week 13 was not kind to me; I managed a subpar 7-9 record on the week. Stella didn’t have her best showing either, but her 9-7 was enough to turn my one-game lead into a one-game deficit. She’s on top again … and I haven’t got much time left to rectify that.

Of course, weeks like Week 14 certainly help. We’re once again at odds on fully half of the slate; eight games on which we disagree. Hopefully, that will serve to help my case this time around; if not, I could be looking at a tough hill to climb in the season’s final stretch.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 13

And look at that – I’m back on top!

Granted, it’s just one game, thanks to my 10-4 week. Stella did just fine at 9-5, but it wasn’t quite enough. And so I’ve regained my lead. Again – good weeks for both of us … just slightly better for me.

That could all change pretty quickly here in Week 13. Stella and I are at odds on eight games – fully half of the full 16-game slate. That’s a lot of room for one of us to make a move, although with the even number, we could just as easily wind up with another push.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 12

And just like that, we’re back to square one.

Thanks to a stellar 11-3 week from Stella and a slightly-less-stellar 9-5 out of me, Kibbles and Picks is officially all tied up. We can basically just forget the first three months of the season and move forward from here.

And there doesn’t look to be a ton of movement after Week 12; Stella and I differ on just five of the week’s 14 games. That said, if one of us really crushes it, we can open up a not-insignificant lead. Regardless, since we’re at odds on an odd number, the tie will be no more. Someone will be winning at this time next week – it just remains to be seen who that might be.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 11

That was … bad.

I came out on top in Week 10, but my 6-7 record is hardly worth bragging about. Stella did just one game worse at 5-8, which doubles my lead and put me two games up on the season. Again – it’s a net win, but there’s nothing to be proud of about any of this.

Let’s hope that we see a rebound here in Week 11. We’re at odds on half-a-dozen of the week’s 14 contests. I’d call it an opportunity for one of us to make a big move, but the reality is that neither one of us has truly shined this season. For now, let’s just assume that this NFL season has been less predictable than usual thus far and this week will be the week that we start to lock it in.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 10

It really has been an up-and-down year here at Kibbles and Picks.

Week 9 saw Stella put up a solid 9-5 record, while I lagged behind at a mere 7-7. That two-game bump cuts my season lead back down to a single solitary game. Things are just about as close as they can be.

And there’s a surprising amount of room for movement here in Week 10. While there are just 13 games on the slate, Stella and I differ on over half of them – seven, to be exact. It’s the kind of week that lends itself to a big shift in the standings. In which direction? Well, we’ll have to wait and see.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 9

Things are getting serious.

No change in the overall picture – I maintain my three-game cushion – but that’s only because Stella and I matching killer weeks, with each of us going 12-3. I can only hope I won’t need to maintain this pace, because I don’t believe I have it in me.

Week 9 is another slate where we don’t disagree all that much. We’re at odds in just six of the 14 contests; not a lot. Still, if one of us happens to hit, we could nevertheless make a move.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 8

Now we’re talking.

Thanks to a clutch 11-3 record this week, I’ve added to my season lead over Stella. I gained two games, courtesy of Stella’s still-quite-good 9-5; my lead is now up to three. It has been some time since I approached the midseason mark with a lead; I’m just crossing my fingers that I’m able to maintain.

There shouldn’t be a ton of movement this week – Stella and I differ on just six of the week’s 15-contest slate. Of course, there’s nothing to say that one of us won’t go five-for-six and make a four-game move.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 7

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Stella and I put up identical 7-6 records on our picks last week, and so the score remains the same. I maintain my slim single-game advantage for the season and Stella continues to bide her time, allowing me another week of hope before my inevitable defeat.

Or maybe not.

We’re at odds on fully half the slate this week – seven of the 14 games are in dispute. And with an odd number, we’re at the very least ensured of SOME movement, even if it’s just one game. But Stella and I both played hunches and took some gambles here in Week 7. We’ll see whether they pay off.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 6

Can we all agree to just sweep Week 5 under the rug and move on?

Neither Stella nor I had much luck in an up-and-down and unexpected week. However, Stella still managed to squeak out an 8-7 record for the week, while I was right on a mere six contests.

That means that my three-game lead has been reduced to a single game. We’ve moved past the quarter-point of the season, so I can only imagine that Stella, having given me a chance to feel at least kind of good about myself, has decided that enough is enough.

We’ll see if this is the week where she starts burying me – we’re at odds on eight of Week 6’s 14 games, so there’s plenty of room to make a move. Whether she (or I – it’s possible) can make a big jump depends on the outcomes of the following.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 5

Another week, another game gained.

Neither Stella nor I had a particularly great week last week, but mine was just a little bit better – 9-6 to her 8-7. This means that I add another game to my lead, now up to three on the season.

Obviously, I know that this is all an illusion and that Stella will almost certainly rise up and crush me. I imagine her eventual victory may be rendered all the sweeter by the fact that she allowed me to have some modicum of hope before my ultimate demolition.

Will this be the week that she takes the power back? She certainly has the opportunity; the two of us are in disagreement on eight games this week – more than half the slate. It’s certainly enough for someone to make a big move; we’ll just have to see if that’s the case.
