Got out of the gate with the Green Bay Packers OUTRIGHT underdog Win in Chicago on Thursday and it's time to crank it up for the first Sunday in the NFL with more Stone Cold, Lead Pipe LOCKS!!!
Lots of low numbers today as we turn the corner into the 2nd half of the NFL season.
Time to get some winners for the Thanksgiving Feast and early Christmas shopping.
Read that if you just bet AGAINST Cleveland and the 49'ers and WITH the New England Patriots and Dallas this season, you'd be 29-5 against the spread. Thankfully I stopped getting sucked into the Browns on Thursday night like most logical folks.
4 picks for your dining and dancing pleasure...
Going with 4 favorites. Jags stink, but they're home and the Gus bus may be impounded if they don't get a win at home. Going with Jacksonville + 2 against Houston.
Carolina is a FG fav at home against KC. I have to lay the 3 and take the Panthers
Dallas has been a machine, but Pittsburgh needs to reset their season with a big win. Rematch of SB XXX when Neil O Donnell was the Cowboys best friend. I'm going Steelers - 3 at home
and the Sunday Night game should be a decent one. Pats home vs Seattle. Seahawks getting better but the Pats are even better. Lay the 6 1/2 and go with New England
For amusement only, of course
As someone who suffers from SAD (no, not a bad week of NFL selection of which I've had zero - except a bunch of 2-2 Sundays) I hate when we switch from Daylight Savings Time to shorter, earlier darkness for the next 5 months. It's the dumbest idea ever and servers no purpose!
Now, on with the Sunday Selections.Coming off a 3-1 Sunday where my only loser was by 1/2 pt as the Browns couldn't find a way to cover the 3.
The games start taking on bigger meaning for many teams as we make the turn into the 2nd half of this season. The Philadelphia Eagles are on of those teams on the brink of making or breaking what started out as a surprisingly better than expected season at 3-and-0, but have lost 3 pf their last 4 since. They have OWNED Eli Manning and the Giants the last 9 games at the meadowlands, going 8-1 there. New coaches on both sidelines, but I have to take the Birds today, simply because they would drop to 0-3 in their own division and the G-Men haven't been lighting anyone up so far this season. Philly PLUS the 3...
Minnesota's offense is sooo bad Norv Turner bolted this week, realizing they can't run what he wants, so Pat Shurmur re-unites with Sam Bradford AGAIN as the Vikes are back home and face a decent Detroit team in a huge game to re-right the suddenly sinking Longship. I'm laying the 6 1/2 with Minnesota
I smell a couple of trap games, but I won't go with really bad teams hoping for a cover..i.e..Cleveland getting 7 1/2 at home vs Dallas or Jacksonville getting 7 1/2 at KC..so you know both of those dogs will cover, right? Enter with caution.
The Baltimore-Pittsburgh game will be interesting. Ravens have lost 4 straight, Pittsburgh 2 in a row. Big Ben is coming back and you know isn't 100% and even if he is, it's been a hell hole for him down in that joint for a while. Must win for Baltimore..Lay the 2 1/2
Out in LA, the Rams have set in the west while Carolina is showing signs of snapping out of its trance this season. now that Cam Newton has alerted the commish about him not getting any calls for late and dirty hits, expect the flags to fly non-stop in what should be an ugly game. Cam stops whining and the PANTHERS win and cover the 3 1/2
