Gleason’s NFL picks, Week 10

As my old friend David Byrne was prone to say: same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was…

You have to hand it to me: At least I’m consistent. Like most of the previous weeks, I got off to a rip-roaring start last week. A 6-1 start, to be exact. I gave a satisfied nod and thought, “Maybe this is it. Maybe this is finally the week I drop an 11-pack of wins on my dear readers.”

Then I won two of the final 7 games.

But you’ve been fairly warned: Bank on my early picks. I’m a big-time 1 o’clock player, but when the sky starts to darken, my football world fades similarly. I have flat-out bad picks. I have heartbreaking losses, like Baltimore taking Pitt in the final seconds.  I just know how to lose the late ones.

But I persevere. Still finished a credable 8-6 last week. Still went a spit-shined 3-0 in best bets, which, by the way, are a sparkling 17-9-1 on the season. And I’m already 1-0 off my Oakland pick — what a gimmie that was — on Thursday night. I’m so ready to break through, so ready to spread some daylight into the night.

Best bets are in CAPS:

Atlanta pick ‘em vs. New Orleans

PITTSBURGH minus 3 at Cincinnati

KANSAS CITY minus 3 vs. Denver

Jacksonville minus 3 at Indianapolis

Buffalo plus 5.5 at Dallas

Houston minus 3 at Tampa Bay

TENNESSEE plus 3.5 at Carolina

Miami minus 4 vs. Washington

Chicago minus 2.5 vs. Detroit

St. Louis plus 2.5 at Cleveland

Arizona plus 13.5 at Philadelphia

Seattle plus 6.5 vs. Baltimore

San Francisco minus 3.5 vs. Giants

Jets minus 1.5 vs. New England

Green Bay minus 13 vs. Minnesota

Last week’s record: 8-6

Season record: 60-64-6

Last week’s best-bets record: 3-0

Season best-bets record: 17-9-1
