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…

RAIDERS (+3) over Chiefs

This matchup looked a lot more appealing before the season started. It’s not like the Raiders are bad but they are clearly in a funk. Last week they lost to the lowly Chargers courtesy of a missed extra point by kicker Giorgio Tavecchio. That miss led to a last second field goal by the Chargers, dropping the Raiders to 2-4. Things do not get any easier as they welcome the first place Chiefs. The Steelers beat them up last week. Le’Veon Bell was the battering ram of choice and he…

NFL Week 6 Spread Locks

As we venture into the second quarter of the football season, chaos has ensued. There are no clear cut elite teams, but a lot of drek in the basement. There are some surprise stinkers, most notably the Giants who we covered last week. With Odell Beckham Jr., and Brandon Marshall done for the year the tank is officially on for Big Blue. The Giants aren’t the only team facing a crossroads. Ben Roethlisberger has been ole reliable for so many years, but all good things come to an end. Last…

Thursday Night Football: PANTHERS (-3) over Eagles

This week’s Thursday night tilt features two of the better teams in the NFC. Both the Eagles and Panthers come in hot, each winners of their last two games. The quick turnaround will effect both teams as the Panthers are coming back from Detroit while the Eagles hit the road after flambaying the Cardinals at home. The three point spread should tell you right off the bat that Vegas thinks these two are even. Carson Wentz has been pretty damn good all season, following up an impressive rookie campaign. Surrounding…

NFL Week 5 Spread Locks

That was a letdown. Following an electric Week 3 it’s easy to look at Week 4 as a letdown. But that is not the case. There were upsets- Panthers knocking out Patriots in Foxboro, Bills winning in Atlanta. There were “did that really fucking happen again” moments- Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota going down in the same day for second straight season, Dolphins shut out again. All in all the action is starting to settle. The Chiefs have ascended to the top of the league, Deshaun Watson has become the…

Thursday Night Football: Patriots (-5.5) over BUCCANEEERS

I’m like a degenerate gambler that can’t get off the roulette table. I’ve put $100 on black three straight times and lost, yet I convince myself it will be black the next time. For four straight weeks I have trusted the Patriots to cover. My reward has been a 1-3 record. Still, I cannot stay away from the GOATs, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Does the Patriots defense stink up something awful? Absolutely. Does Brady’s dominance hide the impotence of that defense? Again, absolutely. Brady has shredded the NFC South…

NFL Week 4 Spread Locks

To quote the GOAT LeBron James, about damn time. Offense returned in a big way in Week 3 and the result was one of the better NFL Sundays in recent memory. The Rams and 49ers kicked things off Thursday night when both teams combined for 80 points. Blake Bortles of all people continued the explosion with four touchdowns in London as the Jaguars mollywhopped the Ravens 44-7. Tom Brady also got in on the fun. He reminded us all that he is the one and only GOAT as he spazzed…

Thursday Night Football: PACKERS (-7.5) over Bears

Which Bears team will show up Thursday night? At home they seem to carry a certain bite. In their sole road game they looked neutered. They will be in Green Bay on Thursday so according to the pattern it means we should be in store for the Bears defecating the bed. You should never make game picks on patterns because at the end of the day each game is individual of itself. You need evidence, so let’s get some. Aaron Rodgers will be calling the shots for the Packers while…

NFL Week 3 Spread Locks

Folks, we officially have an offensive outage. The first week jitters are not an excuse. What we saw on Week 2 is more or less what we will get for the remainder of the season. Once again we saw low scores, poor quarterback play with very few big plays. Tom Brady and the Patriots shook off a weak opening week and Jameis Winston’s Buccaneers looked pretty damn solid in their debut. On the flip side Cam Newton and the Panthers are the most underwhelming 2-0 team in the league. They…

Thursday Night Football: Rams (-2.5) over 49ERS

Look away, look away. If you thought last Thursday night was a pile of crap then this week is pure diarrhea. Division rivals (and I use the term rival loosely) lock horns in a battle of the bums. In one corner we have the Rams who are actually not that bad, but as Jared Goff showed us last week, should not be fully trusted. In the other we have the 49ers who are 0-2 but have not embarrassed themselves considering how bad their games could have been. The matchup that…
