The Roy Boy Football Challenge

Hark! Who Goes There?

If you are not a Horton, you have mistakenly meandered into our family football pool.

Still here? If you have to know, we pick all games against the spread using the Las Vegas odds. Use the Sunday Chicago Tribune for the "final" line on the Sunday and Monday games. In the case of a Thursday or Saturday game, use the Chicago Tribune from that day. We each select a lock-of-the-week as a tiebreaker. You can find our picks each week on the message board. Use them at your own peril.
