Big Ben hoping for playoff fun!
A record of 10-6 last week keeps the spiral going upward for winning trends against the point spreads this season.
There have been no losing weeks for me this season. At $1,000 per wager, using my games you would currently be up $13,400 NFL Mikee knows all.
Starting Thursday Night with the Steelers playing Cleveland, I see no possible way the Steelers lose this game. After a solid cover versus a better Cincinnati squad, Pittsburgh should have no trouble with this number.
The Steelers are in a heated division race with the Ravens and should have the afterburners on for the remainder of this season. Steelers -14.
Matt Ryan and company have been up-and-down so much this season, it makes you wonder what the real problem in Atlanta is.
Injuries and just some bad breaks can turn an NFL team with a lot of talent into a 9-7 team, but the Falcons take care of business here in a game they desperately need to win. Atlanta -2.5.
Houston, with a rookie quarterback in tow, visits Cincinnati and will come crashing down to earth momentarily this weekend. With a 9-4 record, the Texans are still going to make the playoffs with a win or two added on somewhere—but not this week.
The Bengals run defense is outstanding and with Schaub, Leinart, and possibly Andre Johnson out, or slowed down at best, I see the Bengals coming out ahead at home.
Andy Dalton was unimpressive last week against a tough Steelers defense, but he should be back on his game this week—so be on the lookout for a decent day. Cincinnati -3.5.
Detroit at minus 7.5 seems a bit too high, however. Minnesota +7.5.
Chris Johnson is back and if Tennessee had a couple more receivers, this team could be very dangerous.
The problem is Drew Brees can score more points than Chris Johnson. New Orleans -3.5.
Indy, still winless, will remain so in Week 14. They travel to Baltimore to most likely get demolished. I took Indianapolis last week with a huge spread and they covered.
That's not likely to happen twice in a row. Ravens -14.5.
The Vick experiment is failing miserably and I bet McNabb or Kolb would have a better record then 4-8 with the talent on that team. Who thought Vince Young would be a good back-up? Wow! Dolphins -4.
New England's defense better come back from vacation in the playoffs or it might be a one-and-done run for Brady this season. New England -8.
The hardest game to pick this week is Tampa Bay versus Jacksonville. Only because Maurice Jones-Drew is productive leads me to pick Jacksonville. There's not much to say about both of these franchises except that they are not very good. Jacksonville +1.5.
The Niners have clinched the NFC West and now will play for home advantage in the playoffs. Arizona is playing fantastic defense and has weapons in Beanie Wells and of course Larry Fitzgerald.
I am leaning towards a field goal game to win it here, which means at 3.5, Arizona is a bargain. They win, you win. They lose by three, you still win. Cardinals +3.5.
This should be another excellent week. Good luck to all your teams this coming football week.
