The outstanding negative correlation in our picks--what we've dubbed the Costanza factor--was interrupted last week by two shockingly correct picks, taking us to a merely terrible 2-9 on the season for picks. We still believe in our ability to predict the exact opposite of what will happen, of course, so we present this week's Costanza picks in our favorite poetic form, haiku, in hopes of riding the haunting 5-7-5 rhythm to victory this weekend.
