Can you pick NFL games better than Social Buzz can?

Buffalo Bills at Baltimore RavensIn exactly one week from today, the most exciting season on TV starts up. No I am not talking Real Housewives or Big Bootied Weddings, but the hard hits of the National Football League.

Now as with any season, there will be folks making their weekly predictions based on everything from their gut to uniform colors and cold hard football facts. This season, I have decided to make my picks based on the social buzz surrounding the teams squaring off each week. To come up with my picks, I will assign a point score  based on various social metrics. I will explain more next Thursday, but it will be very similar to my Super Bowl and NFL season predictions from last season. Each Thursday, I will post my picks to this blog and to my ESPN group..

This method may sound silly, but the numbers are just as good as picking a winner by which team has hotter cheerleaders right?

Do you think that you can pick NFL winners better than going by the social buzz? If so, I invite you to join my ESPN group. At the end of the season, I’ll send the person with the best overall record a $25 gift card to Amazon.

Hope to see you there.

    @Tinu 🙂 You can always look to revive the passion. Chris Johnson is more exciting than Eddie George was
