Kibbles and Picks 2021 – Week 3

And so it begins.

After a brief respite in Week 1, where Stella and I finished with identical 8-8 records, Week 2 finds the natural order restored. Specifically – Stella is winning once again.

Now, it’s not by a lot – she went 11-5 and I was hot on her heels with a 10-6 record – but a lead is a lead. She has historically proven quite reticent to relinquish said leads when she gets them, so … buckle up, I guess?

We’re at odds on six of the week’s contests this time around, so we’ll see what happens.

Kibbles and Picks 2021 – Week 2

And we’re off to an underwhelming start.

It’ll probably come as no surprise to anyone who followed Week 1’s upset-riddled slate that neither Stella nor myself had a particularly good week. In fact, we had pretty much the same not particularly good week – we both managed to go 8-8.

So we’re back at it with a clean slate this week, both of us essentially starting from zero. Not that we’re likely to see a ton of separation after this coming week, because Stella and I are at odds on just five of this week’s contests.

Kibbles and Picks 2021 – Week 1

That’s right! Everyone’s favorite man-versus-dog NFL picks feature is back!

For the ninth(!) year, The Maine Edge presents Kibbles and Picks, wherein I pick the winners of each week’s slate of NFL games in direct competition with my dog Stella. And for those keeping track of such things, Stella has outpicked me in six of those previous eight seasons.

Yep – out of eight attempts, I’ve outperformed my dog exactly twice. And both of those were close.

But hey – hope springs eternal or whatever. Maybe I’m steadfast or maybe just a glutton for punishment, but either way, I’m back to try again. So is Stella, though she’s less in her head about it than I am. She’s fully prepared to defeat me yet again – just because she is adorable and loves me doesn’t mean she’s going to take it easy on me.

It’s on. Wish me luck.
