SUPER BOWL LIII PICKS — updated with final Sunday picks!

This is the condensed version of picks for Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII (53) for Winners and Whiners between:

Los Angeles Rams vs. New England Patriots

(Just a heads-up: It’s long)

Conference Championship review:

Won’t lie, both of those games hurt my feelings. That’s all I’m going to say about it.

Besides, the better narrative is me making a triumphant comeback with my Super Bowl picks and everyone lives happily ever after (or at least with a little more scratch in their pockets). That said, this has been a learning first season of handicapping, and I’m looking forward to reviewing all my too-clever by one-half mistakes to make sure I DO NOT do them again in my second season.

For those who have reached out to me via Twitter (@AlTruda73) and other social media with questions and comments, I thank you… In the end, we’re all trying to get better, and some of the points absorbed have helped to that end. 

So one last time: Follow Winners and Whiners on Twitter here (@WinnersWhiners) and follow me here (@AlTruda73.) In addition to me, there are some really good handicappers and writers in the stable, and they know what’s up.

And lastly, THANK YOU for reading! It does mean a lot you take time out of your day to read what I offer.
