Week 9 NFL picks from social media

Heinz FieldThe NFL season is nearing its halfway point and teams are starting to emerge as favorites to make it to the playoff tournament. How is your team doing? I have been enjoying watching the Ravens as of late and even though their win against Arizona was less than overwhelming they are still sitting at 6-2 heading into a Week 1 rematch against the Steelers. Aside from watching the action like many of you, I participate in a weekly pick ‘em pool. Most years I pick on a combination of gut feeling and stats. This year I decided to break away from that method and decided to make my weekly selections with social media buzz metrics using Lithium’s social media monitoring tool (full metrics here). Despite an abysmal 5-8 Week 8 showing, I am sitting at 59-58 on the season sticking strictly to the metrics. Below are my picks for Week 9:

  • New York Jets -6, Buffalo 22
  • Seattle 7, Dallas 9
  • Cleveland 3, Houston 13
  • Atlanta 6, Indianapolis 10
  • Miami 3, Kansas City 6
  • Tampa Bay 6, New Orleans 10
  • San Francisco 6, Washington 10
  • Denver 16, Oakland 0
  • Cincinnati 13, Tennessee 3
  • St. Louis 8, Atlanta 8*
  • New York Giants 6, New England 10
  • Green Bay 0, San Diego 16
  • Baltimore 1, Pittsburgh 15
  • Chicago 0, Philadelphia 16
  • Bye: CAR, DET, JAX, MIN

*= Tie breaker – larger difference between positive and negative mentions

 How are you picking the season’s winners? If you’d like to try your luck against the social picks, I invite you to join the ESPN Pick ‘em league where Mike Schaffer is currently leading the pack with an 80-36 mark. Winner takes home a $25 Amazon gift card.
