The hot streak continues! Last week, your buddy and guru went 3-1-1 with his picks so hope you loaded up. Full disclosure: I took the Bears +7.5 on thursday night and Brian Hoyer breaking his arm fucked me but good. 3 straight winning weeks so let’s continue this freeeeee money train.
This morning, I took the Giants under 45.5 in London. Case Keenum did he job by handing the game on a silver platter to the Giants by throwing 4 picks. So this puts me up 1-1 going into the 1pm games
As my friend Paul said 2 weeks ago and I’m sticking to it, “I’ll stop betting Minnesota when a team can score more than 14 against them.” Eagles off a bad loss and home for this one. Carson Wentz is slowly being figured out by the league and let’s not also forget the revenge factor for Sam Bradford. He was traded before the season when Bridgewater went down and was a malcontent in Philly. Now, he’s risen like a Phoenix from the ashes and been nothing but consistent. Revenge factor + off a bye week=
I’m taking the Vikings -3
The Jets are trash. Tomorrow’s newsboy sales pitch: “Extra, extra, mouth breathers from Queens jumping off the Whitestone bridge.” Jets are -69 in scoring differential. Forte has been a non-factor since week 2. That secondary has been flambeed, scorched, and stepped on. No Decker and Geno Smith is now the starting QB. Yuck. Yes, Joe Flacco is a little nicked up but I’m getting 2 points against Geno Smith?? Yes, please!
I’m taking Bal +2
Remember gambling rule 1: Don’t be a hero, just win $. This has been a tough week for picks which is why I’m only taking 4 games. I debated about Oak +2 but for some reason, that game yells, “stay away.” Also debated about NE -7.5 in Pitt without Big Ben. Also felt that could be problematic. So, here’s the final pick: Atlanta got FUCKED in Seattle with a non-call for pass interference. They’re coming home and playing SD who has had 10 days to prepare. SD has been playing teams tight, they’re sneaky good ATS. A lot of expert picks have SD covering again. But this is the week that comes to a halt. Atlanta has been flying high and to have their wings clipped in such a fashion last week (I had Sea -6.5, didn’t cover), they’ll be pissed and will air it out at home. SD can keep it close but not closer than a TD against the Falcons
I’m taking Atl -6
