So much for my wonderfully useful theory that the locked-out officials’ return would bring clarity back to the increasingly complex endeavor of picking winners against the spread in the NFL. Suffering through an awful 5-9 week will leave you scrambling for alternative answers. Searching, searching, still searching... Listen, picking winners is hard. It may sound easy on the surface. Team A is better than Team B, Team A is only favored by a field goal, pick Team A. Say the magic word, abracadabra, and Vegas sheepishly hands out free money for everyone!
