It wasn’t the most successful of weeks here at The Sports Geek for Week 2 of the NFL pre-season. We dropped games from Thursday through Monday, and even mistakenly graded a losing selection, as a winner! My sincere apologies on last Saturday’s grading, as we were on the Vikings -3 against Arizona and they only secured a 2-point victory. Though it was not a good week, I can take solace in the fact that four of the defeats came by a combined 6.5... Read MoreIndians vs Twins Pick – MLB August 21st
We notched another nice double-up winner with the Angels dispatching of the Red Sox and Angels almost exactly as prescribed here at the sportsgeek.com, with one MAJOR exception. I didn’t predict the Angels having to do so with star pitcher Garrett Richards leaving in the second inning with a likely season-ending leg injury. It is a HUGE blow to the best team in baseball, and makes the top heavy and chaotic American League even more in flux. Everyone... Read MoreAngels vs. Red Sox Pick MLB – August 20th
The widening of the gap in what at one time looked like one of the more competitive divisions in baseball, the American League East, has reached a season high 8 ½ games. Not many people were picking the Orioles before the season and even fewer were picking them to run away with the division, but that is exactly what Buck Shoewalter’s club has done. And while the fanfare around Oakland and Detroit was loud, the O’s just put their heads down and... Read MoreD’Backs vs. Nats Pick MLB – August 19th
We notched a nice double-up winner last night to make for five winning picks in the last seven (bad day Saturday notched the two losses), and while it could be classified as an “easy winner” the Royals bullpen did introduce a little late drama. Justin Vargas cruised and the Royals offense did some damage to carry a 6-1 lead into the ninth before Minny plated three runs to make the runline wager a little tense. All’s well that ends well, and... Read MoreBrowns vs. Redskins NFL Pick – Week 2 Pre-Season August 18th
It wasn’t meant to be on Sunday Night football yesterday evening as the Chiefs dropped a disappointing defeat to the Panthers back-ups. Kansas City had a ton of opportunities and red-zone trips, but their starters lacked efficiency in the final 20 yards. Today, there’s only one game to focus on and it’s possibly the most highly-anticipated pre-season encounter in recent memory. The Browns travel to the nation’s capital to take on RG3 and the...

We are down to the final six weeks of the regular season, and both leagues have plenty of tight and exciting races still to sort through. One of the more interesting is the continuing drama unfolding in the American League Central as the heavily favored Tigers and upstart Royals are heading rapidly in opposite directions. The Royals went from wildcard hopefuls to a 1 ½ game lead in the division and their sights firmly set on making their first postseason... Read More
