In the NFL, a lot can happen in a short period of time. Just ask Aaron Rodgers who was Discount-Double Checking in the Tampa endzone up 10-0 in the first quarter. We see how that ended up huh? Point being, the early window of last week’s games could have resulted in a 6-3 record for yours truly had the results held up from midway in the fourth quarter at Tennessee and Philadelphia. Houston was covering against the Titans and the Ravens were throttling the Eagles. 15 minutes later? Houston plays it safe and Tennessee wins in overtime on a touchdown then Philly musters a 22 point fourth quarter to cover. 8-6 turns to 6-8. I guess I need to drink a big cup of Tough Crap.

Last week YTD

Record 6-8 48-42-1 (53.3%)

Top Picks 1-2 11-10 (52.3%)

Betting Result DOWN 19.2 Units DOWN 14.2 Units

As for this week, I will be honest with you. I don’t like any of these picks. So, you get three top picks and a bunch of shoulder-shrugging...

TOP PICKS (10 Units)

Pittsburgh (-2) at Tennessee

I will concede to you that Tennessee is 5-0. However, have we looked at the defenses that the Titans have played this season?

Jacksonville - Horrible

Minnesota - Just lost to the winless Falcons giving up 40

Buffalo - Fair

Houston - Not very good

Denver - The best of the bunch

If four of the five teams Tennessee has played have fair or worse defenses, I like Pittsburgh’s chances to win by a field goal.

Dallas (+1) at Washington

Being a WFT fan, I know better. Sure, both teams stink. However, the Cowboys record against the WFT is like 38-6 or something. Maybe, I have embellished this to prove a point. Or maybe, I was too lazy to do research.

San Francisco (+2.5) at New England

What version of the 49ers is going to show up? The Miami version or the L.A. Rams version? Regardless, it appears that there are some offensive woes in Foxboro. They scored 10 sans-Cam in Kansas City and scored 12 with him against the Broncos. Seems to have an issue against tougher defenses. Let’s go with the Niners and the points.


N.Y. Giants (+5) at Philadelphia

Detroit (+2) at Atlanta

Cleveland (-3.5) at Cincinnati

Carolina (+7.5) at New Orleans

N.Y. Jets (+14) vs Buffalo

Houston (+4) vs Green Bay

Seattle (-3.5) at Arizona

Denver (+10) vs Kansas City

Jacksonville (+7.5) at L.A. Chargers

Las Vegas (+3) vs Tampa Bay

Chicago (+5) at L.A. Rams

Do you see this? What the heck is the computer thinking? The Jets? Really?!? Damn thing still loves the Stache in Jacksonville. Of course, this damn bag of chips has a better picking record than I do. Regardless, I hope y’all make some money this weekend.
