’21 NFL Pick’em Week 4

NFL Pick’em is one of the best and worse ways to make money while gambling on sports. The odds are usually in your favor. However, the underdogs do come through sometimes and pull off a miraculous upsets, which then makes you question whether or not you actually understand the game.

The best pickers stumble sometimes and never see the New York Jets coming. The only way to win your pick’em group is to roll with the favorites but expect an upset now and then. The best advice is to always read the game and injury reports because they can be a lifesaver.
