2013 – 2014 NFL Win Loss Predictions & Picks & Super Bowl Odds, NFL Expert Predictions

On any given Sunday, anything can and WILL happen.  It’s the National Football League after all!   Still, we analyzed every single game of the season, and we picked a winner – during boring NFL preseason play.  As a result, we have a final win-loss record for every team in the National Football League by division (along with their Super Bowl odds as of 09/01/2013).  Now, don’t bet the farm on this – we should take these predictions with a grain of salt… as several unforeseen circumstances are not factored in here.  For that, we would need a crystal ball to read the future (i.e. injuries, etc.).  But for the most part, we’re sticking with these win loss predictions, win or lose.  All for fun and fun for all.  Heck, we are almost 11 years online (at SafePicks.com) with a ton of loyal followers – so I think we know a thing or two about NFL picks & predictions.  Let’s hope some of you capitalize and we see you at SafePicks.com!  So, here we go… by division, here is our final win loss predictions for the 2013 National Football League season:

AFC West
Denver:  Overall 12-4 (Division: 5-1)  Super Bowl Odds:  5/1
Kansas City:  Overall 9-7 (Division: 5-1)  Super Bowl Odds:  50/1
San Diego:  Overall 4-12 (Division: 1-5)  Super Bowl Odds:  50/1
Oakland: Overall 2-14 (Division 1-5)  Super Bowl Odds:  250/1

NFL Experts, Matchup Preview: 2013 NFL Week 1 – Baltimore at Denver -9, Kickoff & Pick!

I decided to post our first site post here… if you want ALL of the killer NFL picks and predictions, come visit us and good luck!

Welcome back all SP users! Another NFL season is FINALLY upon us and we’re all just chomping at the bit to get it started! The National Football League opens the much anticipated 2013 season on Thursday (Sept. 5, 2013) with an exciting match-up in Denver when the Broncos host the Super Bowl winning Ravens.  We want to wish each and every one of you a great season and we’re just happy to be back for yet another great year at SafePicks!  Okay, without much further ado, let’s get right into Week 1 – let’s go first to that exciting kickoff in Denver.

Baltimore @ Denver -9:  Sports Authority Field at Mile High will be the place for when it all goes down, the kickoff to open the 2013 NFL season.  QB Joe Flacco leads the Super Bowl champion Ravens into Denver, where Peyton Manning and the Broncos are highly touted contenders to be hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy come February.  QB Flacco will be eager to show he’s worth the $120 million contract he received in the offseason thanks to the Ravens’ title triumph over San Francisco for the Super Bowl trophy.  Now it’s a re-worked Ravens squad who will take the field, without retired defensive and emotional leader Ray Lewis, and then some, more later.  The Broncos have endured some turmoil, too, with linebacker Von Miller suspended for six games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.  Nevertheless, four-time Most Valuable Player, Peyton Manning, is widely expected to guide Denver to the playoffs as he did last year in his return from multiple neck surgeries. Now, the Broncos have waited almost eight months for their chance to avenge last season’s dramatic divisional playoff loss to a Ravens team that appears ready for the challenge this week.  Riding an 11-game winning streak and ahead by seven late in the fourth quarter, Denver appeared headed to the AFC championship game last season, until Ravens’ QB Joe Flacco connected with Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard touchdown pass with 31 seconds left, forcing overtime and stunning the Broncos. The Ravens went on to a 38-35 double-OT victory in which QB Flacco threw for 331 yards and three touchdowns – along with that long TD to Jones – in the playoff win.  Then that propelled them to a 28-13 win at New England the next week, and they went on to beat San Francisco 34-31 (it was also a SafePicks NFL Expert Prediction) to claim their first Super Bowl title since 2000.  And the rest is history.

Travers Stakes 2013, SARATOGA: Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I just have to post this because it’s such a shame to see all the forums and pundits out there do their best to inform us, but yet they miss the mark!  In the name of winning, I thought I would write this. In addition to those forums and pundits… you should follow me:  @Safepicks.  If not, at least check out @Safepicks and see what I wrote, satisfy some curiosity — confirm the following for yourself.  I don’t tweet picks much, but when I do… well, you get the picture…

Saratoga, Travers Stakes (Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013) Race 12: 

I tweeted my feel on the on #6 horse Moreno.   2 evenings… I studied the field.  I felt the household names in the field were over-rated…. and then I used some other methods to my madness… which I won’t bore you with.   The pundits?  Well we know who they were all over – the usual suspects (favorites like Orb, etc.).

I tweeted:  do a TB of 2,3,5,6 and that… I had taken the beautiful #6 Moreno for the win.

Well what a race it was!!  Moreno almost went W2W (wire-to-wire)… I did not get the WIN – but settled for a very decent Place/Show payout!   Even better???   The TRI box came in at what?  5 – 6 – 2 for a near $2000 WIN!!!!

The most important thing… I hoped everyone that got my tweet cashed, ONLY ONE PERSON confirmed that they did.  Shame.  Yet, every forum/pundit I checked out had it WRONG.  (Which is okay too). But follow me — let’s connect as I am doing with a few in the twitter world.  Collaboration is always good when it pays!

So this is all.   GOOD LUCK HORSE PLAYERS!   Love horse racing!  Hitting WOODBINE RACETRACK this weekend for a track-side family affair!  Feel free to follow me or not – and let’s make some money together?   Again, good luck and all the best!
