Clinton v Trump II

The future course of America will technically be decided on November 8th. In reality it will be decided TONIGHT, right before our eyes. We will know immediately after the debate if Donald Trump has ANY CHANCE to win this election. If he leaves independent voters with even a fleeting positive thought about his campaign – he has a chance. If things continue on their current track and he can’t shift the momentum, it’s over. Many have opined in the wake of Friday’s bombshell audio clip in which Trump boasts about…

Bills @ Rams (-2.5)

If you’re putting money on this game you need help. Both teams are more than capable of laying an egg – leaving you with a non-competitive waste of time AND money. I like the Rams at home in this matchup almost “just because” but I’ll give you a couple reasons. Buffalo is coming off a good win, which naturally makes me suspicious of them winning a third game in a row, thank Rex. The Rams D led by DT Aaron Donald can be an elite unit any given week and…

Monday Night Football: Giants @ Vikings (-4.5)

Shame on me. I believed in the Giants last week as home favorites when recent history has told us to RUN THE OTHER WAY. Eli and the Giants have always been road warriors which is why this week you should….take the Vikings. That’s right, this is the game the Giants theoretically WOULD cover, but they’re 0-2-1 against the spread this year, and for me–this isn’t the team they’ll end that spell against. The Giants are coming off a tough week. They lost Shane Vereen for the season leaving a void…

Bills @ Patriots (-7.5)

People affiliated with the NFL often joke that it’s an acronym meaning, “Not For Long.” The league is cyclical and we see this phenomena with teams all the time. Years back, we saw the Jets have 3 really good years under Rex Ryan and then…they fizzled. We saw the Kaepernick-led 49ers have 3 really good years and then…they fizzled out too. Most recently we can point to the Seattle Seahawks. The last 3 years have been phenomenal, and while they have started 2-1 this year, there are a lot of…

Kentucky @ 1. Alabama (-35.5)

Mark Stoops and the Wildcats have, let’s face it, no chance to win in Tuscaloosa. Alabama has better athletes across the board and will thoroughly outclass Kentucky in their homecoming game this week. Here is all you need to know: Alabama can pound the rock like no other; Kentucky can’t stop the run. Nick Saban & Company have a two headed monster in the backfield with Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough. Harris is a little banged up but that won’t have any effect as the Alabama O-line is a superior…

Lions (-3) @ Bears

On any given week in the NFL you’re guaranteed a handful of really good games–Lions @ Bears is NOT one of them. If you’re outside of the Chicago/ Detroit market and don’t own Matthew Stafford or Alshon Jeffery in fantasy, you probably have very little interest in this game. The pick Lions (-3) is made solely because I have no faith in DA BEARS, none, not even a little bit. If the Bears can magically cover, that’s fine, I’ll live with it. I’d rather go about my Sunday with peace-of-mind…

1st Presidential Debate Breakdown

So who won the debate, you ask? I would pose this question: What did you hear? There is an old saying that goes: “Show me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.” As far as who “won” the debate, it simply comes down to this… which channel did you tune into after the event? Fox News (and Trump himself) would tell you that he performed wonderfully while pretty much EVERY other network would tell you Hillary took the night. I believe it was either a draw…

Presidential Debate

The multi-billion dollar machine that is the NFL may have a little problem on its hands. According to “TV By The Numbers,” the Eagles-Bears Monday Night Football telecast generated an 8.3 in the Nielsen metered market rating. The sub par grade reflects an 11% drop from last years Week 2 MNF matchup between the Jets and the Colts. All and all, the NFL has seen a dip in viewership over the past 4 seasons on Monday Nights. This trend undoubtedly triggers great pleasure in two circles: MLB purists still clinging…

Redskins at Giants (-4.5)

At first glance, it would appear wise to go with Washington+4.5. Why? Well if you’re Washington, it’s always easy to get up for a Division rival. Especially when you’re 0-2 and heading into a hostile environment. Even the most ardent, hog-nose wearing Skins fan would agree that Sunday IS their season. Look for an emphatic effort from the road dog in this “all hands on deck” game. But the fact is that the Giants have better hands on deck and they will not be surprised by Washington’s intensity. Let’s remember:…
