How Pungent Are Mark ‘Stink’ Schlereth’s BetRivers’ NFL Picks?

Written By Ian St. Clair on December 7, 2021

Editor’s note: This story will get updated each week to track the NFL picks of Mark Schlereth. 

Mark Schlereth is one of the most colorful personalities in the NFL.

That was true when he played. That’s true today as a Denver radio host and commentator for the NFL on Fox.

Schlereth was an offensive lineman for the Washington Football Team and the Denver Broncos. He played from 1989-2000. At least in these parts, that’s how he’s known. He was a left guard for the back-to-back Super Bowl teams. He helped Terrell Davis eclipse 2,000 yards rushing.

Schlereth is also known for his nickname, “Stink.” The explanation is NSFW, but let’s just say he drank a lot of Gatorade before the game and didn’t want to go to the trouble of taking off his gear for a bathroom break.

In line with the “stink” mantra, PlayColorado will track Schlereth’s NFL picks this season.

Each week, he will make his picks for the BetRivers Colorado Sportsbook. Stink was subtlety sweet last week and was heading into the Week 13 slate of games at 30-35.

For Week 13, Schlereth is back to doing moneyline for his picks (with the spread sprinkled in). All odds for his selections come from BetRivers.

Whether you dabble in NFL betting or not, it’s always fun to see how the experts do with their picks.

Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints

Stink’s pick: Cowboys -6.5

Stink’s explanation:

“Taysom Hill is going to start at quarterback, which I think is a great move for the Saints. Very dynamic. Adds that element of quarterback run in 11-on-11 that everyone desires. But the bottom line is I don’t you think you have enough, even with Taysom Hill, to overcome all of the injuries and all of the issues that you have. You’re going to be minus two All-Pro tackles and it doesn’t look like (Alvin) Kamara’s going to play either. That’s just too much to overcome. What’s the spread, -6.5? I’ll take the Cowboys and give the points.”

Final score: Dallas 27, New Orleans 17

For Week 13, Schlereth went 3-2. After a subtlety-sweet showing, Stink was redolent this week. After 13 weeks of the NFL regular season, Schlereth is 33-37 on his season picks. He’s getting closer and closer to a .500 record.
