The Jetsons might have nailed the future of the NFL when back in 1962 they envisioned that football in the future would be played by robots. You don't have to worry about robots saying something stupid about women reporters and the word "route". You also don't have to worry about fans getting angry at a robot protesting during the national anthem. Nobody will care if a robot damages his dome with a big hit. And biggest of all - you don't have to pay robots massive salaries.
With drone racing gaining in popularity, E-sports being the new next big thing, and sex robots becoming so realistic - things seem to be aligning for a future that includes robots replacing human beings as the gridiron gladiators. In the future maybe MIT vs Cal Tech will be the biggest rivalry in college football.
Anyway - looking at today's slate of NFL games one is reminded of a dumpster fire. But hey - who are we kidding? We are going to watch the games and if we are going to watch a sporting event - money will be wagered. Here's my picks for today (I hope you are betting against me every week):
Buffalo +3 at Cincinnati - buy the half point for +3.5 because this game feels like it will be settled by a field goal.
Tennessee -1 at Miami - two words "Jay Cutler"
San Francisco +2 at Indianapolis - I'm taking three road teams? No wonder my record is 2-8 for the season.
