The Steelers at Tennessee. Did you know that Pittsburgh has lost 7 out of 8 meetings in Tennessee? I still think that Tennessee is the best in the AFC. I take Tennessee straight up here. And is that O/U right?? 34.5?? I am all over the over in this one. 6 units Tennessee over the Pittsburgh Steelers S/U +120 on the moneyline. 5 Units on the Over 33.5.
Next up we have the new Miami Dolphins traveling to KC. MMMM KC, BBQ. MMM, and I think the Chiefs are gonna slab some BBQ sauce on those Dolphins and go to town! We’ll have Smoked Dolphin, Dolphin Briskett, Dolphin ribs, mmmm. And that 39.5 O/U is calling for a pick. We’re going long the over here. 3 units on the Over 34.5 and 3 Units on KC +3.5 over Miami ATS
The Patriots will win this game, there is no doubt in my mind. But can they cover the spread? I have thought about this and I can’t remember the last time the Patriots DIDN’T cover against the Cardinals. Arizona chokes this time of year, maybe it’s the dry air, who knows? I don’t care, all I care about is how to profit from it. -7.5 is a bit steep, but I can’t help myself. 4 Units Patriots -7.5
Next we have the WHOCARES???? Bowl. Cincy at Cleveland. I like Cleveland to win this game 8-6. Two of the softest offenses in football going at it, I am looking for a low scoring game. SO is Vegas, O/U is only 32.5, tempting to take the over, just what your bookie wants. Slap 5 units down on the Under and don’t be a sap. 5 Units on the Under 32.5
Philly at Washington. Great match-up, I like this game to be either a defensive battle, or a Philly juggernaut, but one thing it won’t be is high scoring. 5 Units on the Under 38.5.
San Francisco at St. Louis. What teams has covered the spread against St. Louis more than any other this decade? The past 5 years? You guessed it, SF. They own St. Louis, and so can you. 10 Units SF -4.5 over St. Louis ATS.
New Orleans at Detroit. The Saints better win this game, and they had better keep Detroit under control. I don’t see a 50 point game here, I just can’t see what the guys in Vegas see. I am taking 5 units on the Under 50.5.
Carolina at New York. The Giants are struggling, their receiver core is non existent, Carolina is striving, their running game is unstoppable. I like Carolina to win, this is my upset, sure pick of the week. And since I have now jinxed it, I am only laying 2 Units down on Carolina +3 over the Giants ATS.
New York Jets at Seattle. Gang Green enters the Emerald City. Oh how the mighty have fallen. The Seahawks were in the big game a few years back. Now Santa has given us a gift. The Jets, Brett Favre, only favored by 5 points?? I love it, because it lowers the money line on the game. The Jets win this one, but that 5 irks me. 7 Units Jets (-190)over the Seahawks
Houston at Oakland. Can you feel a blow out? I sure can. Oakland has never beat the Texans, EVER. Maybe next time. 3 units Houston -7 over Oaktown ATS
Buffalo Bills at Denver. Two cold weather cities, playing in the snow. This is what football is all about. Denver is favored by 6.5. They have progressed this season as Buffalo has digressed. I have 5 Units on Denver (-270)
San Diego at Tampa Bay. I like TB a lot. But SD owns them ATS. They have covered all their match-ups. TB lost a crucial game to Carolina, I am not sure they can pull it off against a seriously superb SD team. I am sure that this will be a high scoring shoot out. 4 Units San Diego +3.5 over Tampa Bay and 5 units on the Over 42.5
New Orleans Bowl
Troy -4.5 vs. Southern Miss. I like Southern Miss S/U in this game. Southern Belt schools play well in this bowl. I have 2 Units on Southern Miss (+160) money line and 3 Units on the Over 54.
Record: 35-32 (+1.5 units)
