Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

My season record thusfar is 29-17-2 against the spread; 34-14 straight up.  I haven't gone back in to make any changes after my initial posts thusfar; but going forward my schedule requires that I make these picks Wednesdays - so it might be that I reconsider a couple of games Fridays. Edit - I did.

Dallas -1 Detroit(loss/loss)
NO -7 Jax(win/win)
Wash over StL(win/win)
Tenn +1 Cle(win/win)
Bills -3.5 Bengals(loss/loss)
KC +1.5 Minn(win/win)
Chi -6.5 Carol(loss/win)
Pit +4 Hou (Houston wins game)(loss/win)
Sea +4.5 Atl(Falcons win game)(win/win)
Ariz +1.5 NYG(loss/loss)
