NFL Week 12 Spread Locks

Has the NFL peaked? This is a serious question and we may already have an answer. Last week a good chunk of the league’s drek were off on bye. Logic says that that should lead to good football. Unfortunately that was not the case. Excluding the Redskins vs. Saints game which was nothing short of electric, the rest of the games missed the mark. The AFC West, considered the elite division of the league before the season, flat out stinks. The Chiefs choked in New Jersey against the Giants. The…

NFL Thanksgiving Day Picks

Name a holiday more satisfying than Thanksgiving. Go ahead I’ll give you a minute… Okay by now the only other valid answer is Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa because who doesn’t love presents. Other than that, Thanksgiving is the cream of the crop. The one day where eating until you literally fall asleep is considered a success. When your significant other does not care that you have left the couch just to grab another beer or plate of food. And above all, there is football on from the minute you wake up until the…

NFL Week 11 Spread Locks

Last week the playoff picture became a whole lot clearer. The contenders have begun to hit their stride. The pretenders have started to regress to what they were projected to be. The Patriots went into Denver and stomped out the Broncos with almost as much ease as Cam Newton sauteed the Dolphins. The Jaguars found a way to win against the Chargers. Well really Philip Rivers was just Philip Rivers so the Chargers blew a fourth quarter lead. The Jags are now in pole position in the AFC South, especially…

Thursday Night Football: Titans (+7) over STEELERS

Typically Thursday night games carry as much anticipation as going to the dentist. Sure we watch, but do we watch because it’s good football. Nope. We watch because we either love football, bet on football or my personal favorite love football while also betting on the games. Tonight satisfies all needs. The Steelers have been a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde team. They are at their best when Le’Veon Bell gets the ball 25 to 30 times a game. Ben Roethlisberger is a no doubt Hall of Fame guy,…

CARDINALS (+6.5) over Seahawks

Thursday night’s matchup features two teams extremely familiar with one another. For the past few seasons the Cardinals and Seahawks have been the class of the NFC West. That has been less the case this season with the Rams being so good, but both remain in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Cardinals will trot out Drew Stanton at QB (Carson Palmer is out with a broken arm) which should be a huge advantage to Seattle. Only Seattle is missing their QB on defense, Earl Thomas who is doubtful…

NFL Week 9 Spread Locks

We gather here today to remember Deshaun Watson’s rookie season. Coming out of Clemson Watson’s former head coach Dabo Swinney compared him to Michael Jordan. We laughed at such a stupid statement. Well apparently Dabo does not lie. Deshaun was the real fucking deal. And now he is gone. A torn ACL in practice is heartbreaking to say the least. When Tom Savage and Matt McGloin are the alternatives it elevates to tragic. Toss in that your owner may or may not say the n-word with a hard “r” and…

Thursday Night Football: JETS (+3) over Bills

Remember when we all thought the Bills were tanking because they traded Sammy Watkins? Well it was all a ruse. Not only do the Bills plan on competing this season, they replaced Watkins with Kelvin Benjamin, who they acquired at the trade deadline this week. Playoff football is a possibility in Buffalo but first they have to keep pace with the Patriots in the AFC East. The Jets have proven to be quite the road block. They too were supposed to be tanking but instead have been a thorn in…

NFL Week 8 Spread Locks

Week 6 was an overall L for the league so in comparison Week 7 was a much bounceback. There were no major injuries-unless you’re ready to deem Carson Palmer a major player in this league, which would be incorrect-this week thankfully and there were even some late game entertainment. The overarching theme of the week however was shutouts. For the first time this season there were three shutouts in the same week. The shutouts ranged from unsurprising (Jags blanking Colts), to somewhat surprising (Rams shutting out Cardinals) to completely surprising…

Dolphins (+3) over RAVENS

If you did a double take at that spread, don’t worry you weren’t alone. Common sense says the team that has won three straight games would be favored. Especially when the alternative is a loser of their last two, including an ugly home loss to the Bears in overtime. But dial it back a bit. A three point spread is essentially home field advantage, nothing more and nothing less. The Ravens can absolutely win this game. Yes, the Dolphins are hot but they also have looked real bad (20-6 loss…

NFL Week 7 Spread Locks

This year has been the true epitome of peaks and valleys. The past couple of weeks prior to Week 6 can be considered peaks. Week 6 could be considered death valley. Not only were there few great games, but once again the injury bug came out to play. Football without Odell Beckham Jr., already sucks. Now it appears as if we will also have to finish the football season without Aaron Rodgers either. If you’re keeping score at home the most watchable receiver (Odell), defensive player (J.J. Watt) and now…
