PM Contest: Farmer, Hanson Coming on Strong

Josh Allen

A pair of special guests went 5-0 vs. the point spread last week in our Pick em contest and are making a case for winning it all.

PM Betting Analyst Tony Farmer and Kevin Hanson of were the only contestants in the field of 53 to secure a perfect week thanks to the Bengals, Buccaneers, and Jets all covering. Farmer trusted the Vikings and Bears to cover for his final two wins, while Hanson went with the 49ers and Bills. It was Hanson’s second 5-0 week of the season, and Farmer’s third.

“It’s getting late in the season, and I think the cream is starting to rise to the top,” Farmer said.

Hanson now owns a share of the overall lead at 44-26 along with PM subscribers “SHIEKHERS” and “RMENDIVIL.” Lurking one game behind them is PM subscriber “PENETRATORS” who went 4-1 last week to help stop the bleeding from a 1-9 skid.

Farmer is entrenched in a 3-way tie for fifth place with special guest Kris Abbott and PM subscriber “NICKRICHIE24” at 42-28.

At 41-29 is Bacon Bets Podcast host Iain MacMillan and PM subscriber “JET$$$$$$$” who has publicly stated he’d like to beat MacMillan in this contest. “SMOKESTER4444” also has a 41-29 record.

In the field of 53, other notable participants include former MLB pitcher Andrew Carignan (37-33), former pro bowl NFL linebacker Keith Mitchell (31-39), and Kansas City Chiefs reporter Darren Smith (38-32).

The schedule this week features only six games with point spreads over 3.5 points.
