Greg Cote’s Week 8 NFL picks

Inexorably, our overall record is climbing from profoundly abysmal to merely embarrassing. Next stop: Mediocrity. And after that: Good, perhaps? We’re getting there. But against the spread is a different story. Haven’t solved the bet lines yet, and the record shows it. In 21 years on The Friday Page, our worst season mark against the betting number has been .449 (in 2006), so that is the ignominy to avoid. Hey, everybody needs a goal! [Thursday pick: Vikings (-6 1/2) over Buccaneers, 23-20].
