5-4-1 last week kids which makes it 2 weeks in a row of being a winner. Let’s see if we can build on 2 winning weeks:
As the old saying goes, you learn by getting burned. I learned to NEVER go against Bellichek at home, even when he’s trotting out a 3rd string QB. Pats are fresh off of a Tom Brady-led thrashing of Cleveland. Now he’s back home against the Bengals who are fresh off of getting demolished in Dallas. The Bengals haven’t shown me shit except for they can beat Miami. Whoopty-fucking-do, so can me and 10 other comedian friends of mine. Brady’s first home game after deflate gate and if you don’t think that crowd won’t be bloodthirsty like the ones of the Roman Colliseum, you must be wondering how the Massholes got their name. Tyler Eiffert out for Cincy and Edelman as well as Blount are questionable but I would expect they’re going. The line is now NE -7.5 and the Pats are 30-10 ATS while at home when the line is <10. Cincy defense hasn’t been as special as it was in years past and did I mention Tom Brady is still in “Fuck You” mode?
I’m taking the Pats -7.5
Saints are back from the bye and in marches in a wounded Panthers team. Saints D is worse than white dogshit and the Panthers D ain’t what it was a year ago. Fun fact: Carolina is 11-4 ATS in NO which makes me take pause. The line is hovering around 2.5 and if it were to get to 3.5, I may be inclined to take the Saints. But rule #1 of gambling is don’t be a hero, just win money. And I think the over of 53.5 is certainly attainable.
I’m taking Saints over 53
The Browns are bad. But when you break it down, they’ve lost in double digits to 2 decent teams and nearly beat 2 average teams. And we all had Miami as the suicide pick with our collective assholes puckered when the Browns lost in OT. The Titans are by no means good. Browns have a few guys who are questionable but this line is wayyyy high. I’m talking Snoop Dogg on 4/20 at 4:20 high. You want evidence? Fine, Tennessee has covered in FOUR of their last 23 home games. Now, if you can lock it in now at +7 or above, do it! It may drop closer to game time. A lot of people are putting Tennessee as their suicide pick and I didn’t because this screams trap game. And do you want to put your faith in the Titans? Not me. I should say that I’m not loading up on this game and nor should you.
I’m taking the Browns +7
Death, taxes, and Andy Reid off the bye. Reid is 19-3 SU and 16-6 ATS after the week off and he goes into the Black Hole where the Raiders have been hot. Raiders D is cold diarrhea but that offense is delightful. The lines range from 1.5-2.5 and you better believe the Chiefs are playing ball control. No way then can match scores with Oakland. But everyone rested up for the Chiefs and they can win by a FG. The cholos in Oakland go home disappointed as KC pulls out a road win.
I’m taking KC +2
The statement game of the week: Are the Falcons as good as people are starting to think? I think they’re good but this is the ultimate test. Russell Wilson destroyed the Jets secondary with a gimpy leg and now he’s had a bye to rest up. Let’s also add that the Hawks are home. Now, the Falcons went into Denver and just manhandled that vaunted Denver D. But I think Sea off the bye and home is too much for the Falcons. The line is a manageable -6 and let’s remember we’re a short memory away from Matt Ryan throwing picks like Slash at the end of a concert. Take a moment, you’ll get that joke.
I’m taking Sea -6
If you took Andrew Luck in fantasy, that sucks to be you. He’s been sacked 20 times already in 5 games. Lamar Miller HAS to break out sometime and no better time than against an awful Indy D who’s allowing a robust 29.6 a game. Indy D gives it up more than a teenage runaway in a bus stop bathroom. 2 more fun facts: Indy is 0-3 ATS on the road this year. Hou is 3-0 ATS when at home.
I’m taking Hou -3
