Indy has clinched the division and home field through the playoffs. Coupled with a short week and travel, expect a small mental letdown.
The Jags must keep winning or crack the barn door open, for other teams to slip in, and ruin a nice comeback season from the previous year. I took the Jags in a small upset in this one. You get 6.5 points. This was the right pick, as Indy wins 35-31.
Those Vegas guys are good. But I 'M BETTER. LOL The line was 6.5 and Indy wins by four. Now I really like the next pick with New Orleans bashing Dallas and giving that division to a deserving Eagle team.
New Orleans will keep Dallas skidding out of control in December, like a car on black ice, cliffs on both sides. Seven is the number and New Orleans shows the team in control in 2009/2010.
San Diego has a rough situation trying to hammer a team, who lost Chris Henry suddenly in a tragic death, plus all the struggle after another death this season to another close friend of the team.
Cincinnati will have to travel, and the emotion of a team dedication to Henry for the rest of the season, will maybe carry them through the first half of this game.
San Diego will pull away quickly in the second half and get the Bengals back home. San Diego wins by around 10.
Minnesota plays an injury ridden Carolina team, that will tiptoe around in an effort to not get hurt in a meaningless game for them. The Vikings are simply tuning up for the playoffs at this point. Nine is reasonable with the way Carolina has played this season.
The Giants are clinging to playoff hope and will handle Washington, who has looked a bit better lately. The shine, however is worn dull in this rivalry, with a lack of talent to compete at a high level on the Redskin teams of late.
Good luck to all in this weeks games. I am 112-94 against the line this season. Not the best of seasons, but not a losing season, as far as if you were betting on these games.
A good finish would help, in these last three weeks. At a bet of 100 dollars per game, you would be ahead this season 860 dollars. At 1000 per game, you'd be up 8600 dollars, and at 10 dollars per game, a whopping 86 bucks.
Betting on as many games as possible is more fun, and your odds, as you make intelligent picks, are much safer with multiple single game bets then trying a big bet on a sure thing, that messes up quite often.
Have a great week.
