The 2020 NFL season is down to the final game. For 30 teams they have moved on to the 2021 offseason while the Chiefs and Buccaneers will batter to be the top team in the NFL for this highly unusual season.

For the 2020 NFL season, six of the BTSC staff (a group I have affectionately named the “BTSC Super Six”) have signed up to pick every game against the spread and the over/under point totals. We are doing things a little different this year and including the Thursday games. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers. We are just a group of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.

We are using a new program called Tallysight this season. It will allow us to show picks in a much more “friendly to the eye” manner. To understand how it works, the default tab is for our picks against the spread. To see the over/under picks, click the “O/U” tab in the upper right.

Two weeks ago, when picking games against the spread, Michael, Bryan, Geoffrey and Jeff led the way by going 1-1. Michael, Jeff and Bryan correctly picked the Chiefs to cover while Geoffrey was the only person who took the Buccaneers to advance to the Super Bowl. Bryan took the top spot overall at 136-132 as he holds an 9-game lead over Geoffrey with only the Super Bowl remaining.

When it comes to picking the over/under, Michael was the only person to go 2-0. Michael continues to hold the top spot overall at 139-129 by three games over Geoffrey. When combining both sets of picks, Bryan remains in the top spot at 267-269 combined. Michael could pull into a tie as he is needing to make up 2 games and Geoffrey held course at 5 games back.

So here are the picks for the games for Super Bowl LV. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
