Paul Zimmerman writes this week about why sportswriters have such a lousy record of picking games. Why are these experts unable to do any better than 50-50?
"Because they're not experts," says Zimmerman's source within the betting industry. "They're just people pretending to be experts. Sportswriters are notorious for not being able to pick games. We, and by we I mean the professional handicappers, are in a different universe out here." Interesting stuff.
