NFL WEEK 4 AGAINST THE SPREAD PICKS

NFL WEEK 4 AGAINST THE SPREAD PICKS

Baltimore -2.5      Steelers

Baltimore has started of 0-3 for the first time in their history.  The Steelers lost Big Ben and that is a big lost.  I do not know which Mike Vick we will see.  The Vick with the Jets was not good because the talent level sucked.  Vick is prone to turnovers but he still has some speed and a big arm.  I just feel ravens are more desperate and a few days is too little for Vick to be ready.

Baltimore -2.5

Jets -1.5              Dolphins

My team the Dolphin sucks despite all of the talent.  Their big problem of course is the coach.  The Jets are not as great as people thought the first two weeks.  In typical Joe Philbin style he will win this game to save his job and probably go back to the same old boring Joe next week.

Dolphins +2.5

Colts -9      Jags

The Colts have been horrible so far and the Jags have been better than last year and that does not say much.  The Colts will not be a serious contender unless Gore and Johnson play a bigger role.  I say they barely cover here.

Colts -9

Falcons -6.5       Texans

Texans have 2 backups as QB and the only way they can beat a team is with defense.  Falcons offense has looked great so far this year and Texans can’t score enough.

Falcons -6.5

Panthers -3        Bucs

The bucs have shown they are not as bad as they were week 1.  They also show they do have a long way to go.  The panthers are not an offense machine but they will muster enough to beat the Bucs.

Panthers -3  

Bills -5.5       Giants

Bills looked great beating the dolphins but they have not gotten to the level of the Patriots.  The Giants are better than their record and could easily be 3-0.  I think the two teams match up pretty tight and Bills may win but Giants will cover.

Giants +5.5

Raiders -3     Bears

Raiders have been playing great.  Carr has them putting up points on offense and the D look decent. I do not think they are a playoff team but could easily win 7 or 8.  The bears are without Culter just when he started off good.  Clausen will be a turnover machine.

Raiders -3

Eagles -3     Redskins

Redskins are an OK team not as bad as some thought they would be.  The Eagles showed a little sign of life last week against the Jets.  Eagles have a slight advantage here and they will win.

Eagles -3

Bengals -4     Chiefs

Bengals have looked good so far and so has KC but KC had some tough opponents that they lost to. It should be a good matchup and I give Cincy the edge because they are at home.

Bengals -4

Chargers -7.5       Browns

Josh Mcown sucks and look Manziel is not the saviour now but he gives a better chance to win than Mcown.  The chargers have not lived up to expectation but they do cover here.

Chargers -7.5  

Packers -8.5     49ers

49ers finally are who we thought they were. that first week against the Vikings was a farce. Packers have been clicking on offense and it will continue here.

Packers -8.5

Denver -6.5     Vikings

Broncos D has been doing a great job this year and for once a Peyton team does not have to fully rely on him.  Vikings have been playing good ball especially with Peterson back.  At home though I think the Broncos will still roll probably only by a TD but enough to cover.

Denver -6.5

Arizona -7      Rams

Rams have been an up and down team and really only showed they can score against the seahawks. I dont believe Foles is that good and thats a big problem.  Cards look good on offence and defense and they should cover 7.

Arizona -7

Saints -4     Cowboys

I am rolling Cowboys all day.  They almost beat Atlanta with a backup QB in his first week taking over for Romo.  The Saints got beat with Brees at home by Tampa bay so they are not the Saints of old.

Saints -4

Seattle -10      Lions

Seattle does not have what they had last year at least not yet. The Lions are not as bad as their 0-3 record shows.  They put up a fight in the last game and while I am sure Seattle will win I think the Lions can cover.

Lions +10

NFL WEEK 3 AGAINST THE SPREAD PICKS

BEETWO NFL AGAINST THE SPREAD PICKS

Giants -3.5 Redskins

Surprisingly this may be an interesting game.  With Philly’s bad play and Dallas losing Romo and Dez these two teams have a much better chance of winning this division than we thought week 1. The Giants have had the Redskins numbers for the past few seasons and I go with them.

Giants -3.5

Steelers -1.5 and Rams

Week 1 the Steelers put up a decent effort against the Pats and the Rams looked like a playoff team.  Back to earth now the Steelers are pretty good and they are getting Bell back in the run game.  Rams have a great D but go with the best QB on the road, I am not a big Foles fan.

Steelers -1.5

Vikings -2.5   Chargers

Both of these are pretty decent teams and maybe one of the hardest picks of the week. The Vikings are home but I will take the Chargers in this because I really don’t like how Vikings lost to a not so good 49ers team in week 1

Chargers +2.5

Housten -6.5   Bucs

The Bucs absolutely stunk in the first week against the Titans.  I was really wondering if Winston was a bust in the first week.  Week 2 he showed he has the arm and may have potential to break the mold of Heisman winners at QB not being good in the NFL.  Housten probably has the better defense with 2 third string QBs.  Housten may win this one but I think famous Jaemis keeps it close.

Bucs +6.5

Jets -2.5     Eagles

Who would have thought the Jets would be 2-0 and eagles 0-2. Seems they are going in opposite directions. Fitz has looked good at QB the first couple weeks and the Jets D look great.  The eagles however do have a good amount of offensive weapons and Chip is starting to feel the heat after all his offseason moves. Be prepared for Chip to compromise his system a bit to get their first win because hes desperate.

Eagles +2.5

Panthers -6.5    Saints

The Panthers are not an offensive juggernaut by any means but this one is easy.  Drew brees may or may not play.  Even if he does though Carolina defense is pretty good that paired with them being home and Saints offensive being very watered down since trading Jimmy Graham.

Panthers -6.5

Pats -13.5   Jags

New England looks incredible. The jags beat my team Miami last week and Miami really stunk it up.  New England wont make the same mistake especially at home.  Look for Pats to put up over 40 points and Bortles to get a beaten.

Pats -13.5

Ravens -2.5   Bengals

Division games are usually tough to call.  The ravens have been known for tough D from I started watching football.  This year however they seem soft especially with the loss of Suggs.  The Bengals have had ravens number for the past few seasons and they are a better team.  Flaco is better than Dalton  but since this is not a playoff game go Dalton

Bengals +2.5

Browns -3.5   Raiders

Raiders to win 2 in a row? What year is this? Yep believe it.  Raiders are not a great team but they will be good for 6 or 7 games this year. Starting McCown for browns is about as exciting as kissing your sister.  Expect for the Browns to lose. if Manziel started I would probably pick Browns not because he is great but he brings a spark.

Raiders +3.5

Colts -3.5    Titans

The colts really let me down the first 2 weeks and looked terrible.  The offence is in shambles, running game is not what it was thought to be.  Gore and Johnson seem to only add age to the roster so far.  their defense is nothing to brag about either.  On the other hand Mariota is not what he showed in week 1 and will put up a game similar to last week this week. Run with Colts.

Colts -3.5

Atlanta -1.5    Cowboys

Before their injuries Dallas looked poised to be a real Superbowl contender.  That being said i think they have a complete team that could still make the playoffs.  this week however while they decide whether they will keep Weeden or start Cassell until Romo returns I think the ATL gets the best of them.

ATL -1.5

Arizona -6.5      49ers

49ers are not as bad as we thought they was but don’t mistake that for being good.  The Steelers could be charged with assult for what they did to them last week and Arizona should get the death penalty for what they will do this week.  Cards roll

Arizona -6.5

Seattle -14.5  Bears

I hate high point spreads but this one I will have to go with.  The hawks offence is slowly coming together and the addition of Chancellor in the D should give them an advantage.  Jimmy Clausen is about to be lunch meat

Seattle -14.5  

Miami -3     Buffalo

Miami is my team and we have been playing real bad. This one is a tough one for me because Bills have owned us and Rex Ryan has had success against us.  I think it will be a close game and if Miami wins it will be 3 or less

Buffalo +3

Denver -3    Detroit

So far this season Detroit has not looked that good at all Denver has a fierce D that causes alot of turnovers.  Some people feel that Manning has lost it and its probably his last season.  I think its possible its his last season but he hasn’t lost it. The coach tried to put in a new offence and so far it has failed.  They will go back to the usual offence this week expect Peyton to throw 4TDs

Denver -3

Green bay -6.5   Chiefs

The Chiefs are a good team but they are on the road against one of the best QB’s in the league.  Rodgers numbers and stats at home are great.  And they win by  more than a TD.

Green bay -6.5

NFC AND AFC CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND PREDICTIONS

NFC AND AFC CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND

This weekend will be an amazing one of football.  Regardless of regular season records for both conferences most people felt that these were the 4 best teams this year and they made it.

We will start off with the NFC which should be one of the great defensive battles of all time.  Both teams are sort of mirror images of each other.  They both have amazing running games and very athletic quarterbacks.  Seattle should have the advantage when you compare the defensive backs and San Fran may have a slight advantage when it comes to the defensive line.  Kapernick is faster to me than Wilson but Wilson makes the best decisions and is the better quarterback.  49ers by far have a better receiving corp with Crabtree, Davis and Boldin which should be a great matchup against the Seahawks amazing secondary.  Gore and Lynch are both physical “grinders” at running back but Lynch is faster and I would pick him out of the 2.  Truth is this is one of my hardest picks ever and I am thinking this may go into overtime which will be classic.  Two great coaches who players love to play for.  I have to go with the momentum that the 49ers have and pick them to win.  Whether Percy Harvin can play or not will have a big impact on the game.

49ers 19 Seahawks 16

The AFC Championship is like the headliner of a major boxing match. Manning and Brady is what everyone wants to see.  It is kind of sad both are in the AFC so we will never see a Manning / Brady Superbowl but this is the next best thing.  Starting off with coaches John Fox is a good coach but Belichick is incredible and may go down as the best ever.  It is going to always be an argument between which QB is the best.  Manning is thought to be the better regular season QB while Brady has had more success in the post season.  Peyton has 3 great receivers, great running back and a great tight end.  Brady has some unknowns and 2 solid receivers.  It is basically two great offences against two average defenses.  Both teams have great run games that are based on the explosiveness of their pass games.  In the end it will be Belichick with his great planning that pulls of the win.

SUNDAY RECAP OF NFL PLAYOFFS

SUNDAY RECAP OF NFL PLAYOFFS

SUNDAY RECAP OF NFL PLAYOFFS

Well if you look at my previous picks for the weekend I was 3-1. I could have been 4-0 had it not been for some bad coaching but we will get into that.

The game with the 49ers and the Panthers turned out basically like how I thought it would. The Panthers started out somewhat dominant but in the end 49ers pulled away. The Panthers had a great season but their problem is on offence. Steve Smith is their best receiver and while he is great he is the only legitimate option. Lafell and Ginn are far from reliable and didn’t make any dynamic plays. On the 49ers side of the ball i will say off the top that i am still not impressed by Kapernick this year. His athletic ability allows him to mask his bad quarterback play. He is surrounded by talent namely Boldin, Davis and Crabtree who makes him look very good. He has to make the good decisions if the 49ers plan to get to and win the superbowl this year.

The Chargers and Broncos game showed a few interesting things. It proved what I heard on the Jay Mohr show that Wisenhunt, the Chargers OC interviewing for other jobs during the week HURT the team. It was a horrible coaching job because their star running back Matthews was obviously hurt, it was then they should have switched their offence gameplan. They waited until they were down bad to start throwing when it was wayyyyyyy too late. This game also showed that the Broncos are not as good as they are supposed to be. Chargers played an absolutely atrocious game for at least 3 quarters yet still had a chance to come back at the end. Manning played well but it seems they are not as invincible as they were earlier in the year.

Aside

DIVISIONAL

 

THE DIVISIONAL ROUND PLAYOFFS

Chargers and the Broncos

Let’s start off with the Chargers and the Broncos.  Peyton Manning is one of the best QB’s ever if not the best.  His only critisicm is that he can’t play in cold and he is not as great in the playoffs.  The cold itself may not be a factor maybe it’s just playing away from home that might be a little difficult for him.  The reality of it all is that Peyton isnt completely to blame for when his teams failed in playoffs past.  Teams in the playoffs make their defensive schemes to take away Manning and the rest of the team does not step up that is why they lose.  Denver is a team that has alot of pressure on it.  It is not one of them teams that sees going to the playoffs as an accomplishment; they are built to win now and anything short of at least a Superbowl appearance is not accepatble.  Philip Rivers is an amazing QB and the Chargers are playing with house money.  These guys with skill and alot of luck got into the playoffs so it is an exciting ride and I don’t think it will end this week.  It will be a very close game it could be a shootout but the Chargers will find a way to pull it out because these teams see each other twice a year.

CHARGERS 34 BRONCOS 31

Colts and Patriots

The matchup that most people would love is if Broncos won and Colts won this week so that the AFC Championship would be Luck against his predecessor Manning.  Sorry to say that won’t happen this year.  The Patriots will win this one.  Andrew Luck showed us last week that in his second year he is even better than we thought.  They proved to be a team that despite losing a big piece in Reggie Wayne; they came together and steped up to the occasion.  This game will definitely be close and despite the power of both offences it may be relatively low scoring.  This year Brady is playing lights out and no the stats are not there to prove that.  They have lost Gronk, Hernandez and Welker which were Brady main targets and Brady was still able to get 12 wins.  With a week off to prepare expect Belicheck and Brady to be ready to win.

PATS 27 COLTS 20

 

Panthers and 49ers

The Panthers deserve alot of praise for turning around their season after starting slow they finished very strong.  Cam Newton has matured through this season and is showing why he is a superstar.  They have a great running game and dominate the line of scrimage.  Their defence is one of the best in the league. They however will not win this game they have no chance.  These teams have played earlier this year and Carolina came out with the win.  This time the 49ers will come out with the victory.  These teams are known for the same things.  They all run the ball well, have QB’s who are athletic, great defences and can dominate the clock.  The difference in this is Michael Crabtree.  This one man changes 49ers from an average offence to a very good one.  Their passing game will be the key and Carolina only has Steve Smith who is a real receiver. San Fran had Boldin and davis all year but that 3rd  reciever will be a big impact.

49ERS 24  PANTHERS 13

 

Saints and Seahawks

Sean Payton is an amazing coach and showed last week that the Saints can pull off a win on the road in the playoffs.  He will be doing things to try and simulate the envirnoment they will be in this week in Seattle.  Truth is though the Saints defence has lost some key people on defence and despite Rob Ryan being a good defensive coordinator they won’t be able to hold Seattle in check.  Seattle does not have an amazing passing offence but their great running game allow for a decent pass game.  Drew Brees will have a difficult night against this amazing defence seeing that the Eagles defence made it hard for him.  Seattle’s defence will show up in a big way in this game and help Seattle to make it to next week to face San Fran.

SEAHAWKS 21 SAINTS 13
