You always get your money's worth at IG

 Week 1 

Let's start the season in winning fashion! Here are three NFL picks that can't lose but if by some miracle they do lose I'll give you three more next week and the week after that and the week after that....

Bears +2 - WIN
Chiefs -4 - LOSS
Chargers -9 - LOSS

 Week 2 

Let's hope we can improve on last week's 1-2 start. Here are three more NFL picks destined for glory:

Panthers +10 - WIN
Texans +3 - WIN
Eagles -2½ - LOSS

 Week 3 

With a season record of 3-3, let's take a shot at four NFL games this week:

Bills +7 - WIN
Titans -7 - LOSS
Jets -2½ - LOSS
Packers -4½ - WIN

 Week 4 

With a season record of 5-5, let's try at three NFL games this week:

Lions +2½ - WIN
Bears -7 - LOSS
Giants -1½ - WIN

 Week 5 

The season record now stands at 7-6. Here are four picks destined for greatness:

Colts +1½ - LOSS
Bengals -2½ - WIN
49ers -3 - WIN
Patriots -7½ - WIN

 Week 6 

Last week's 3-1 effort raises the season record to 10-7. Here are three more winners:

Packers -14 - WIN
Panthers +3½ - LOSS
Patriots -6½ - LOSS

 Week 7 

We went 1-2 last week to lower the season record to 11-9. Let's try four games this week:

Jets +1 - WIN
Titans -2½ - LOSS
Chiefs +3½ - WIN
Saints -13½ - WIN

 Week 8 

Last week's 3-1 mark raises the season record to 14-10. Not bad! Let's take a shot at three games this week:

Panthers -3 - LOSS
Rams +13½ - WIN
Browns +9 - LOSS

 Week 9 

Last week's 1-2 effort lowers the season record to 15-12. That's still okay. Let's go out on the limb for four winners this week:

Buccaneers +8½ - LOSS
49ers -5 - WIN
Patriots -9½ - LOSS
Ravens +3½ - WIN

 Week 10 

We split four games last week to put the season record at 17-14. Here are three picks for this week:

Chiefs -3 - LOSS
Saints +1 - WIN
Eagles -13 - LOSS

 Week 11 

We're now 18-16 after last week's lame 1-2 record. Can't believe the Eagles are 3-6. Let's cut back this week and pick only two games:

Bills +3 LOSS
Rams -3 LOSS

 Week 12 

Reno Carbonara's NFL handicapping season is in a free fall. A 4-8 mark in the last four weeks evens his record at 18-18. Flipping a coin would have done just as well. I've got an idea. It's Thanksgiving weekend, so let's just take the week off.

 Week 13 

Let's hope last week's vacation puts Reno's picks back on track. Here are four educated guesses:

Dolphins -3 - WIN
Steelers -7 - WIN
Lions +9 - LOSS
Packers -7 - LOSS

 Week 14 

Reno is now 20-20 for the season. Mediocrity is my middle name. Let's take a shot at three games this week:

Packers -12 - WIN
Dolphins -3 - LOSS
Bills +7 - LOSS

 Week 15 

The record continues to slump and is now at 21-22. :( We are going for three winners this week:

Seahawks -3½ - WIN
Rams +7 - TIE
Cardinals -6 - LOSS

 Week 16 

The season record is now 22-23-1. We must find a way to get over .500. Let's try four games this week:

Jaguars +8 - WIN
Ravens -11 - LOSS
Vikings +6 - WIN
Lions -1 - WIN

 Week 17 

With one week to go, the season record is now 25-24-1. Let's take a stab at three games this week:

Panthers +7 - LOSS
Steelers -7 - LOSS
Jaguars -3 - WIN

 Week 18 

Dang! Last week's 1-2 effort leaves the season record at 26-26-1. Could have done just as well flipping a coin. We can't quit now. Time to suck it up and pick some playoff winners:

Bengals +4 - LOSS
Saints -10½ - WIN
Giants -3 - WIN
Broncos +8½ - WIN

 Week 19 

Woohoo! We went 3-1 last week! Let's try four more:

49ers +3½ - WIN
Patriots -13½ - WIN
Ravens -7½ - LOSS
Giants +8½ - WIN

 Week 20 

Another 3-1 week! Reno Carbonara coming through in crunch time! Here are two more winners:

Giants +2½ - WIN
Patriots -7 - LOSS

 Week 21 

Both our teams won last week but the Patriots couldn't cover the spread. Reno has a 7-3 postseason record going into the Super Bowl. Look for Reno's free pix the day before the Super Bowl.

 Week 22 

After a lot of thought, Reno is going with the Patriots minus the three points. It'll be close and the game could go either way but the big boss man insists I make a selection, so there it is.

 The End 

A tough loss in the Super Bowl gives us a 7-4 postseason record after going 26-26-1 in the regular season. See you all next season!
