Social Media Picks the NFL’s Week 13 Matchups

Tim TebowWelcome to this week’s edition of Espo’s NFL Picks for the 2011 season. Instead of picking games on who has hotter cheerleaders, my gut or by throwing a dart at the list of games I am picking this season’s winners by using a series of social media metrics with the buzz generated by fans using Lithium’s Social Media Monitoring. The full list of metrics and formulas can be found in this post. Thirteen weeks into the season and these formulas have me in the black with a 90-85 record after an abysmal 7-9 showing last season. Hopefully this week will be better with these picks:

  • Philadelphia 10, Seattle 6
  • Atlanta 6, Houston 10
  • Tennessee 6, Buffalo 10
  • Kansas City 6, Chicago 10
  • Cincinnati 6, Pittsburgh 10
  • Denver 16, Minnesota 0
  • Indianapolis 0, New England 16
  • Oakland 15, Miami 1
  • New York Jets 10, Washington 6
  • Carolina 22, Tampa Bay -6
  • Baltimore 1, Cleveland 15
  • Dallas 10, Arizona 6
  • Green Bay 3, New York Giants 13
  • St. Louis 6, San Francisco 10
  • Detroit 10, New Orleans 6
  • San Diego 15, Jacksonville 1

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 a 123-52 mark. Winner takes home a $25 Amazon gift card.
