2023 PFT Week 15 NFL Picks: Florio vs. Sims

2023 PFT Week 15 NFL Picks: Florio vs. Sims

The competition is still deadlocked.

With Sims and I going 9-6 last weekend (she killed us Monday night), we are both 129-79 for the season.

My 10-4-1 performance against the spread has narrowed the gap in that category, but I still have a seven-game deficit.

This week we have two live controversies and six anti-spread controversies. For all Week 15 picks, scroll down.
