Week 13 NFL Picks

Jumping right into the picks this week. (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

FALCONS (-4.5) vs. Chiefs
This should be a good game. Initially I wanted to say a lot of points, but I have a feeling there will be a lot of FGs in this one.

SAINTS (-6.5) vs. Lions
The Saints are back to being pretty good in the Dome.

Rams (+13) vs. PATRIOTS
This is a lot of points.

Broncos (-3.5) vs. JAGUARS
The Jags are bad. Real bad.

Texans (+6.5) vs. PACKERS
The Texans do enough to stay in the game.

Eagles (+2) vs. BENGALS
Without A.J. Green the Bengals offense is not so good. Not that it was playing well this year with him, but without him they have been bad.

Dolphins (+3.5) vs. RAVENS
Sloppy, ugly, brutal to watch game. First one to 20 wins.

BEARS (pk) vs. 49ers
Who cares?

RAIDERS (-3) vs. Bills
This game is also a good one. I think the Bills keep it close and both teams score a lot. Raiders win in the end.

Giants (+6.5) vs. STEELERS
This is a lot of points. Another good game. I think the Steelers win, but the Giants cover.

Redskins (+2.5) vs. CARDINALS
Another tough one for the Cards. I think Washington wins easily.

Buccaneers (+3.5) vs. CHARGERS
Probably is going to be one of the crazier games of the week, simply because that's what the Chargers do, play entertaining football.

SEAHAWKS (-7.5) vs. Panthers
Not a bad match-up, but the Seahawks find a way.

Colts (-1.5) vs. JETS
I am hoping for no rain. Cold is okay, but no rain. And I wouldn't be surprised if the Jets won this one, but I see Andrew Luck having a big game. Jets lose 31-23.

This Week: 1-0
Last Week: 8-7-1
Season: 93-72-11

Good luck in the final weeks of the fantasy football season. Hopefully you are still alive.

Until next time.

Week 13 Quick Pick

Wow, there might actually be a good game on tonight. This is the first time in a few weeks. The Cowboys take their show on the road up to Minnesota to visit the Vikings. The Cowboys should win tonight, but there's a chance they stumble. Minnesota is a tough place to play. Doesn't matter though, Cowboys win, 31-17.

Until next time.

Week 12 NFL Picks

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and nice long weekend. Here are my picks for week 12. (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

BEARS (+6) vs. Titans
That's a lot of points. I like the Titans to win, not by 6 points though.

Jaguars (+8.5) vs. BILLS
Give me the points. Buffalo is due for a stinker.

RAVENS (-3.5) vs. Bengals
The Bengals are banged up and the Ravens are starting to play better.

FALCONS (-4) vs. Cardinals
The Cardinals have been disappointing this year.

Giants (-6.5) vs. BROWNS
This game wreaks of ugly. Giants win, not convincingly.

SAINTS (-8) vs. Rams
The Rams defense is good, just not good enough to slow down Drew Brees in the dome.

DOLPHINS (-7.5) vs. 49ers
Bad game all around.

TEXANS (+2.5) vs. Chargers
Texans need this game.

Seahawks (-5) vs. BUCCANEERS
Seattle is playing like the best team in the league. That continues today.

RAIDERS (-3.5) vs. Panthers
This is going to be a good game. I have a feeling it will be the most entertaining of the week.

Patriots (-8) vs. JETS
I see no way the Jets can win here. Tom Brady has a huge day and the Pats win easily. Fitz throws a couple of picks and we have ourselves a good old-fashioned QB controversy. Just play the kid and let's see what he's got. It's that easy. On a side, selfish note, I cannot express how happy I am this game was moved to 4:25, instead of the Sunday night game. What does that tell you about the Jets?

BRONCOS (-3.5) vs. Chiefs
The Broncos defense plays big tonight and wins the game. Alex Smith doesn't have a chance.

EAGLES (-3.5) vs. Packers
The Packers are having a bad year, and that continues on Monday Night Football, no matter how many times Jon Gruden compliments Aaron Rodgers.

This Week: 3-0
Last Week: 9-5
Season: 85-65-10

Until next time.

Thanksgiving NFL Picks

Happy Thanksgiving! Family, good food, good beer, and football, what else do you need to make a holiday great? Not much in my eyes. That's why today is such a good day.

Here are my picks for what should be an entertaining day worth of football (HOME TEAM IN CAPS):

LIONS (-1.5) vs. Vikings
Matthew Stafford has a good game in this one. I hope the Lions wear their throwback all blue jerseys and silver helmets. This game will be close. The Vikings hang close, but a late FG wins it for the Lions, 24-21.

Redskins (+6) vs. COWBOYS
I like the Cowboys to win, but six points is a lot here. This will be the best game of the day. I see a lot of points scored and very minimal defense. Kirk Cousins has a big day, and so does Ezekiel Elliot. Cowboys win 34-30.

Steelers (-8) vs. COLTS
This is a must win for the Steelers. Andrew Luck is out, and it is time for the Steelers to get on a roll. Steelers win 31-17.

Here's to a Happy Thanksgiving filled with good food, good beer, good company, and some good football!!

Until next time.
