I am writing this hungover and sad as I had to watch the whole bar sing NEW YORK, NEW YORK in my face after watching Alex Rodriguez hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth and Mark Teixeira hit the game winner thereafter. Bitter much?!?!?!

Don’t expect stats on these picks. These are based on dumb reasoning.

Minnesota Vikings vs St. Louis Rams 1PM

I think Bill Simmons says it the best. “Crazy stat: The Vikings average more points (29.5) than St. Louis has scored in all four games (24). And aren’t we overdue for an Adrian Peterson “I’m Going To Win You This Week Single-handedly” Fantasy Week? They can’t make this line high enough.”

If that stat doesn’t say it all, picture Jared Allen against a offensive line 20 times worse than the Packers

Pick – 4 units Vikings -10

Washington Redskins vs Carolina Panthers 1PM

If Carolina can’t win this game against a team that struggled to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the St Louis Rams after having two weeks to prepare I will be surprised.

Pick – 2 units Carolina -3.5

New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos 4PM

I always bet on the Patriots. Call it a homer pick if you want. That’s what I do.

Pick – 1 unit Patriots -3

Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans 8:30PM

Peyton Manning against a team that can’t stop the pass. Are you freaking kidding me. Vegas is begging you to take the Colts here with that number. And you know what, I will. Call me a sucker if you want to, but I will be laughing at the end of the day.

Pick – 5 units Colts -4
