Steelers Win, is Obama Next?

Earlier, we told you about the Redskins last home game before the election system which is 17-1 in predicting the next president of the United States since 1936. With that 94% system and a 62% Free NFL Pick system of our own, the odds favored our pick of the Steelers at +2 tonight, since the Democrats are heavy favorites to win the office tomorrow.

Although some (ahem, ESPN) adjust this stat and say that it is 17-0 since 1940 based on who wins popular vote rather than who the incumbent party is, either way it's an impressive stat and one that we were going to ride. Since Barack Obama looks to be the favorite over John McCain in the presidential election, we went with Pittsburgh, and rightfully so.

The Steelers took care of the Redskins on Monday Night Football, 23-6, which, if Barack Obama wins tomorrow, would improve the election system to 18-1. When the Redksins lose, so does the incumbent party, so look out John McCain.

More importantly, the Steelers win gives our Free NFL Picks a 4-0 week, improving them to a total of 17-10-2 on the year, up to 63%.

Here's a look at how our Free NFL Picks have done on a week-by-week basis:

Week 1: 3-2
Week 2: 2-1
Week 3: 2-1
Week 4: 2-1
Week 5: 0-0-1
Week 6: 3-0
Week 7: 0-3
Week 8: 1-2-1
Week 9: 4-0
Total: 17-10-2... 63%

As you can see, the picks have been a little streaky lately, but hopefully we're back on track after this 4-0 week.

Stay with us as we continue to provide winning Free NFL Picks throughout the year, as well as a winning politcal pick tomorrow.
