My Fantasy Pick’em: Thursday Night Picks [Browns at Ravens]
Welcome to our weekly My Fantasy Pick’em where Dan Schalk, Brandon Reid and Orlando Torres pick all of the NFL games straight up. At the end of the season we will crown one champion of all champions. You can check all three out on the My Fantasy Podcast airing weekly here on My Fantasy Sports Talk.
Week 9 saw both Brandon and Orlando take a huge chunk out of Dan’s lead. Coming into Week 9, Dan held a seven and eight game lead over Brandon and Orlando respectively. Now after a 6-6 week, Dan is searching for answers as Brandon dominated his picks en route to a 10-2 week and Orlando wasn’t far behind going 9-3. The current standings are below…
Dan Schalk: 78-51-2
Brandon Reid: 75-55-2
Orlando Torres: 73-57-2
Thursday Night Picks
Cleveland Browns (0-9) at Baltimore Ravens (4-4)
Dan Schalk: Baltimore Ravens. I got to see just how bad the Browns are up close and personal this past week against Dallas. The Cowboys may be a great team, but the Browns just lack the talent necessary to win games at the NFL level. We may be witnessing another rare 0-16 season.
Brandon Reid: Baltimore Ravens. This one scares me because Cleveland is a professional football team and they will win a game, most likely. This is a game they could win. I’m just not going to predict it. I think Baltimore’s defense is good enough to keep the Browns from getting comfortable in the game. The Ravens offense is also finally getting healthy. I got Baltimore at home.
Orlando Torres: Baltimore Ravens. Usually Thursday night games are lopsided and a mess. It’s rare that we get to see a good competitive game on a Thursday night. This game shouldn’t be a lopsided one though, even though it’s the Browns, it’s still a divisional game, so both teams will come to play. Cleveland wins if they can find a way to stop the run, but unfortunately for Cleveland they rank at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to stopping the run. Terrance West isn’t Ezekiel Elliott, but this should be a nice bounce back game for West running on a poor Browns defense.
