NFL Week 15 Spread Locks

The Locks Packers (+3) over PANTHERS We’ve seen this movie before. Aaron Rodgers has been out for weeks with a broken collarbone yet the Packers have held it together. Credit to Brett Hundley who looked anemic when he first took over for A-Rod but in the end did his job. Now Rodgers has to come in and win three games to have a chance at yet another playoff berth. His first game back he gets a tough, but beatable opponent in the Panthers secondary. This should be a close one…

NFL Saturday Spread Locks

The NFL is here to save college football lovers from withdrawals with a Saturday slate of games–or at least they think they’re saving us. There are only two games on tap for today, one with no stakes and the other monumental. Let’s start with the game that means nothing other than being it being a NFL game on a Saturday. Bears (+5) over LIONS By all accounts the Lions should win this game. They have the better team and need to win this game. The Bears are the inferior team…

Thursday Night Football: Broncos (-3) over COLTS

One word for this matchup–yuck. NFL viewership is already in the toilet and this game is going to be visual diarrhea. The Broncos absolutely stink. The Colts are atrocious. Vance Joseph may have been dealt a bad hand with quarterbacks. Chuck Pagano is the bad hand in Indy. That’s all you really need to know but for the sake of explaining the pick let’s run through both teams quickly. The Broncos are all defense, if they’re on this game will be over regardless of how anemic their offense is. Andrew…

NFL Week 14 Spread Locks

The Locks Cowboys (-3.5) over GIANTS Which Cowboys team will show up Sunday? Last week they took advantage of the sloppy Redskins to win their first game without Zeke Elliott. This week they get a Giants team that is free of Ben McAdoo and welcomes Eli Manning back into the fold. Typically a team that just fired their head coach tends to perform well. That can still happen. My reason for picking the Cowboys has more to do with the weather. It snowed all day Saturday and it will be…

Thursday Night Football: Saints (+2.5) over FALCONS

Before we talk about any football let us rejoice. There will be two good football teams playing on Thursday night at relative full strength with stakes on the line. On the Saints side they can get one step closer to locking up the NFC South. They took down the Panthers last week, one more division win will have them focused on securing a first round bye. Mark Ingram remains a game-time decision and left guard Andrus Peat will be out with a groin injury. If Ingram cannot go rookie Alvin…

NFL Week 13 Spread Locks

The Locks Patriots (-8.5) over BILLS The Patriots are peaking at the perfect time per usual. It’s kind of amazing how similar Tom Brady and LeBron James are. Early in the season the masses seem to question if they have fallen off. By midseason we realize how stupid that notion is. And by the end of the season we remember why they are the GOAT. Right now Brady is reminding us just why he is the best. Over their last three games they have scored 30-plus points in three straight…

The Classless Giants…Fire McAdoo

The Giants are now a classless organization after the handling of Eli Manning’s situation. First off, let’s forget the 210 consecutive start streak. When Eli was drafted, he forced his way to New York because that’s where he wanted to be. Love him or hate him he’s been reliable during his tenure in New York. They offered him to start the game but be taken out. Why would anyone want to start a game just to be taken out? He’s being replaced by Geno Smith, a guy who won’t even…

Thursday Night Football: Redskins (-1.5) over COWBOYS

Okay here is what we know. The Cowboys are without Zeke Elliott. Since Zeke started serving his suspension the team is 0-3. In that same span the offense has failed to crack double digit points. Dak Prescott simply has no other viable options other than himself and Dez Bryant who is also blanketed 90 percent of the time. You couple the offensive drought with a spotty defense and disaster is the result. The Redskins know what it’s like to not be at full health but unlike the Cowboys they won’t…

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…
