PFT’s Week 10 2023 NFL picks, Florio vs. Simms
The season is halfway over, and the competition remains very close.
Simms and I disagreed on seven games last weekend. I got four of them right; he got three.
For the week, I was 9-5 and he was 8-6. That makes me 83-53 straight up on the season, and he’s 80-56.
Against the spread, I had a solid 9-5 week. I still trail him by six games, however.
And, for a change, our best bets weren’t our worst bets. I went 3-0, and Simms went 2-1.
This week, we disagree on four games straight up, and seven against the spread. All picks appear below, and the full video of the joint mega pick podcast is here.
