Sports Junkies NFL Picks: Lurch Catches Fire in Week 8

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Another week, another tough flip of the coin for John “Cakes” Auville.

While the other Junkies used logic to make their picks in Week 8, Cakes again relied on the fickle finger of fate — or thumb in this case.

After correctly picking the first four games on the schedule, Cakes pulled a Redskins and crapped out. He finished Week 8 5-8 after adding another loss Monday night as the St. Louis Rams weren’t able to come away with an upset victory.

Lurch, meanwhile, was en fuego. He correctly predicted 11 of 13 games to easily win the week.

Season leader JP finished 9-4 courtesy of the Seattle Seahawks win on Monday Night Football.

EB, who trailed JP by two games on the season total, matched JP’s 9 wins.

The pair will remain first and second, respectively, entering Week 9.

Season Standings

JP: 80-39
EB: 78-41
Lurch: 68-51
Cakes: 58-61
