Week 3 Picks!

21 Sep

As always bet the teams in bold! Good luck to you and to me!

Green Bay -3 over Cincinnati: Green bay just has too much offensive firepower, Rodgers hit his stride last week, rest of the league better be on notice. Green bay wins this by a touchdown.

Atlanta +3  over Miami : Dolphins are as overrated right now as they will be all year. They have beat the browns and the colts to be 2-0. I’m not impressed. Atlanta has proven to be a good team over the course of years not 2 games. Atlanta wins this game outright. Dolphins finish seasons at 8-8 or worse. But if they win this one maybe look out for them.

Buffalo +2.5 over NYJ : Jets got offense got picked apart by a bad patriots defense. The Bills defense has surprised me this year. I think another big game for mario williams is in store and I think EJ Manuel could have the best game of his young career here. I Like the bills to win this outright. I think Geno smith is a very bad QB and thats that.

Chicago -2 over Steelers: The steelers are bad like real bad. Chicago’s offense has been revitalized by that new offense line, cutler looks decent, Bennett has been huge for them, everything is lined up for this pick to blow up in my face, but I still think Chi wins by a TD.

 

Lock of the week:

NYG -1 over Carolina : Carolina is a bad football team. The giants start slow every year but not 0-3 slow. They’ll get the win here. Carolina secondary is decimated and the giants will throw throw throw to that top tier receiving core. I don’t think this one is particularly close, G-men win it.

 

Teasers:  Ok lets give the whole teaser thing another shot I guess you don’t need to hit on as many of these because your always getting good odds. But my start to them last week was certainly unpleasent haha. Here we go.

2 teamer:

NYG +5 and Atlanta +9 

3 Teamer:

Add Buffalo +8.5

4 teamer:

Add Detroit +6

 

A few other interesting tease options: New England -1, Rams + 9.5, oh new orleans -1.5 I like a lot actually, Minn -.5. just a few other options for your consideration.

Week 4 NFL Picks!

2 Oct

Greetings sports fans!  A solid start to my NFL betting blog last week as I started 5-2 in regular picks but missed on my lock of the week (DOH!) to put my overall record at 5-3. Lets get right into this weeks action!

As always all spreads will come from http://www.footballlocks.com/nfl_point_spreads.shtml. Bold team is the team to bet on.

 

Buffalo -3 over Cincinnati: The Bills are proving they are the real deal at every opportunity this year, and I don’t see them falling into this “trap game”. This is a Bengals team that the Bills crushed last year after being dominated in the first half (Sound familiar anyone?) and that Bengals team actually had some real players on the offense. Cedric Benson will not outshine Fast Freddy. Bills win in a blowout.

Detroit +2.5 over Dallas :  I was planning on picking Dallas for this game because I figured they would be the team getting the points. I think this is going to be a tight game, potentially high scoring. Romo could be knocked out early another good reason to bet on Detroit. I think Detroit has the advantage with a much better defense than dallas in the end. Detroit wins in a close one.

Houston -3.5 over Pittsburgh : Houston to me has been very impressive this year. There defense may have been torched last week, but the Steelers ain’t the Saints. That O-line is terrible, and the Texans are the real deal. Another case where big ben could be knocked out of this one early. I think the Texans take this one by at least a touchdown at home.

 

Now it’s time for the lock of the week! (sorry about the short column this week)

New York Giants-1 over Arizona : I hate the Giants, but I hate the Cardinals even more. This team just beat the Eagles and they are only favored by 1 against a much worse avian team? Hows that work? Giants D is gradually getting more healthy,and although I don’t think you can ever count on Eli he seems to throw for 2 or 3 touchdowns every week and the Cardinals secondary is on the worst in the league. Especially there corners. I think the Cards get torched in this one.

 

 

Week 3 NFL Picks!

25 Sep

For all point spreads I will refer to   http://www.footballlocks.com/nfl_point_spreads.shtml .

*Bold teams are my picks.

Philadelphia -8.5 over New York Giants: Vick is cleared to play and ready to go, and the Giants are well, the Giants. Eli’s a turnover machine, they’re banged up bad at wide receiver, they’re banged up even worse all over the defense. I believe this will be the first true glimpse of that “dreamteam” everyone was afraid of coming out of Philly. The Eagles win in a blowout.

New Orleans -4 over Houston: Houston is the real deal this year although their offense lacks consistency at times. It appears Foster is a no go and I believe both Tate and ward are injured but playing. However the Saints are the Real Real Deal, despite their 1-1 record they put up an impressive showing against the world champion Green Bay Packers. And dominated an impressive week 1 Bears team all the way around. This offense is electric and Houston will not be able to keep up. New Orleans wins it by a touchdown.

Cincinatti -2.5 over San Francisco :  The bengals have been better than advertised in all facets of the game.  San francisco will struggle to score on this bengals defense if you can imagine that. Gore is off to yet another slow start. Bengals win it by a field goal.

Kansas City+14.5 over San Diego: The chiefs will start to look like a real football team this week. They always come to play against the Chargers and Sunday will be no different. Look for Dexter McCluster to have some big plays in this one as he will be getting plenty of touches. The Chiefs will keep this one within 2 touchdowns.

Denver+7 over Tennessee  : The Broncos are a better than people give them credit for. Orton knows how to manage the game and I don’t believe the Titans are as good as there week 2 drubbing of the Ravens. Hasselback will come back down to earth, I actually like Denver to win this game so I for sure think they take it with the +7.

Carolina -3.5 over Jacksonville: Cam Newton has shown flashes of brilliance throughout both the pre and regular season. The chemistry with Steve Smith is undeniable and rookie QB Blaine Gabbert has shown us nothing in the time hes had taking the reps. The Jags have nothing but Maurice Jones Drew and once the score gets out of hand not even he will be able to help them. Carolina wins it in a blowout.

Miami +2.5 over Cleveland: This is a road game for Miami and we all know how good they can be on the road. But really these Browns are being overrated, after losing to the Bengals week 1, they struggled to handle the Manningless Colts. Not to mention Hillis has strep throat but they say he will play.(Update: Hillis is out!) Miami has too many weapons on offense between Marshall/Bess/Bush/Thomas. Look for Miami to pick up there first win, I say they get it by a touchdown.

AND NOW It’s time for the lock of the week:

Atlanta +1.5 over Tampa Bay: Really?? You’re giving the Falcons points? The team that just beat the Eagles? Turner is averaging like 6 yards a carry? Tampa Bay has looked totally unimpressive this season especially in the first halves of games. Look for Atlanta to establish the run early and never look back. The Falcons will soar to 2-1 with a win by 10+.

Im out of time as I started todays picks a little late and didn’t have time to analyse the rest of the games. I will update for the monday night game however. Stay tuned.

Good luck out there today sports fans!
