If by next summer things are back to normal, the National Football League will open camps in July, preseason in August and the regular season in September. Last year, the pandemic eliminated both the length of camps and the entire preseason schedule. Some might have noticed that the lack of a preseason didn’t seem to make as much of a difference as many thought it would.
Perhaps because all 32 teams were working on the same restrictions, the play on the field in September didn’t look as ragged as was feared. For those in favor of reducing the number of preseason games, on top of that list are season ticket holders forced to pay full price for those games, the results in 2020 support their case.
At Qoxhi Picks, we did our work as if the 2020 season was going to be played even as the situation seemed to dim that prospect. From my personal point of view, I had little optimism that the league would get all 16 regular season games played during the 17 week season and that we would ever crown a Super Bowl winner at season end.
I’m glad we did, and while the 2020 regular season was the first ever to use all seven days of the week for games, rescheduling during the season prompted every day to be utilized, the regular season started and ended on schedule.
Turned out to be a very good year for Qoxhi Picks.
Our six preseason choices for season win totals finished the year with four wins, one loss and one push. While we promote season profit margins of 30 to 60 percent for those adhering to the Basic Money Management strategy available to clients online, last year, the Basic strategy generated a 71% profit during the 17 week regular season and the Top Pick Aggressive strategy more than doubled client opening account balances.
Successful NFL seasons require year round work. Before the draft in April, we are reviewing each team for player development, movement and prospects. This year, one team jumps off the chart in our early 2021 evaluations, the Los Angeles Rams.
