Browns -4 over Bills, #CheddarBay essay.

***SUBMIT CHEDDAR PICKS WEDNESDAY’S POST PLEASE, THANKS.*** In our friendly Cheddar Bay Pickstravaganza, we (or at least I) tend to tie ourselves up in knots with research to validate the pick of the week.  In thinking about tonight’s Bills at Browns game, it occurred to me that there’s no team I have more research on than the Browns.  So if I’m thinking...

Cheddar Bay week 6: OSU -7 at NU.

Here is your happy Week Six Cheddar open thread.  In addition to being way too happy with the Bucks, Browns, and Indians from last weekend, we’re happy because we/Cheddar hit at 52% overall and a very good 61% one essaypicks. Clearly the Bobby Brian Hoyer* effect reaches further than Berea.  Could the improved Cheddaring be related to the eerie likeness between...

No complaints here.

. I got nothing.  Not right now. Is Andy Dalton a bag of suck?  Oh sure, you bet; but now’s not the time.  Have I said that Buster Skrine plays good positionally and my greivance is with his size?  Yeah* sure, but who cares… cover your ass posts are boring in general and particularly self-centered if done after such a...

Cheddar Bay week 5: Wisconsin +7.5 at Ohio State.

. . LATE LINE:  AFA +10 at Nevada. THIS WEEKS LINES ARE LINKED HERE. THIS WEEK’S ALL PLAY IS WISCONSIN +7.5 AT OHIO STATE. IPAD/MOBILEDEVICE USERS:  THE STANDINGS ARE LINKED HERE. AND REMEMBER TO DOUBLE CHECK MY ENTRY OF YOUR PICKS ON THIS SPREADSHEET. Well that’s a lot of capital letters. Hey ladies and gents, this is your Cheddar Bay...

The Banner Plan.

. I wrote a post Thursday/Friday that was triggered by the Trent Richardson trade.  It was emotional, hot, angry, pleading, salty.  But yet it seems its point was not made effectively.  I’ve read several responses to it where the reaction centers on the trading Trent Richardson (and what value the Browns got for him).  That not just misses the primary point...

Banner to Browns fans: EFF YOU; National Wags to Browns fans: Smarten up and be patient longer.

. Looking for at least one post that doesn’t tell you how fucking smart Joe Banner is?  Just one write-up that doesn’t tell you, Mr. Browns Fan, that you’re a petulant child for expecting a competitive team this year?  One piece that calls bullshit on the Banner regime’s performance to date?  And what in the hell does the Carmen Policy...

Cheddar Bay week 4: We [are now no longer] goin’ to Ypsi.

LATE LINES: Arkansas +2 at Rutgers; Toledo -13 at CMU; FAMU +49.5 at OSU. . After an emergency session of the Cheddar Bay Executive Committee, the all-play for this week is no longer the sleeper sneaky MAC game between Ann Arbor and Detroit. We are now asking our pickers to choose this game: . Packers -3 at Bengals. 1pm Sunday....

Be a better bettor.

. Cheddar Bay is off to a slow start this year.  Our weekly win rate has gone from 48.7% to 44.6% to 44.0% as of Monday night.  Compare to last year (49.0-40.2-49.7) and 2011 (49.5-48.8-45.4) and we’re down a tad. (Note:  we always figure it out after the slow start.  We closed positive in those last two years:  2012, 50.9%;...

Browns/Ravens preview.

I doubt I’ll be in the business of previewing games but in this case, it seems like a lot of points are being missed.  Since it’s not fun or fair to point these out after the game here are the factors the will lead to an easy Ravens -7 cover.  (And super easy current Ravens -6.5.) 1.  Chris Canty versus...

Cheddar Bay Week 3: Browns +7 at Ravens.

This week’s lines are posted here. _____ Late lines:  OSU -15.5 at Cal; Ole Miss +3 at Texas. Reminder:  use the “Current” column for your point spreads, not the “Open” column. _____ All-play is Browns -7 at Ravens. We had three solid candidates for the All-Play this week.  My pref, I admit, was the Niners/Seahawks.  A great case can be made...
