NFL WEEK 7
Perhaps it’s my lot to go 4-4, as that seems to be the weekly result these days. Another 4-4 week raises the total to 17-22 on the year. Things should tighten up a bit from this week on as far as on field play goes. Bye weeks and in season practice will hopefully make the worst tackling in reason memory get better. Let’s take a look at this week’s slate. As always any losses incurred by relying on said information is not the responsibility of me, The Mountain, Entercom communications, Entercom Northeast, its properties or its subsidiaries.
JETS (-1) over Chargers. Two teams that are evenly matched an in a position to turn the corner into legit contenders. The line I think is a fair line. Earlier in the season it was brought up to the players that they only had one 1pm east coast start this season. The players all said it was such a huge disadvantage to be a west coast team and play that early. Apparently in camp players only need 3-4 hours sleep so they can play video games all night, but during the season they need beddy-bye time. Such is life I suppose. Still any disadvantage on a close line is a huge hoop to jump through. Factor in that the Jets have won 6 of the last 7 tilts against the “bolts” by at least a field goal, well that adds up to a trend. As Fireman Ed goes, so do I: J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!
LIONS (-4 ½) over Falcons. The this week is in Detroit. Those Lions need red meat. Just when you think there’s a turnaround in the motor city, the Lions become a cover machine. LIONS
STEELERS (-4) over Cardinals. Andy Reid is the greatest coach ever! He gets hack QBs to play and trades them for big picks, only to have them exposed as frauds on their new teams (Kevin Kolb, A.J. Feeley). STEELERS
RAIDERS (-3 ½) over Chiefs. Those Raiders have covered 8 in a row against divisional foes. No reason to stop now. Just cover baby! Raiders.
PACKERS (-10) over Vikings. Donnie Mac’s numbers this year weren’t that bad. At least not so bad he should take a benching playing with these hacks. After Adrian Peterson who else on offense can play? Chris Ponder is not the magic bullet. Meanwhile Aaron Rdgers is quietly putting together one of the all time great seasons any QB has ever had. Packers
RAMS (-10) over Cowboys. The Rams have won 6 of the last 10 against the pokes. Spread wise the Pokes have only beaten 2 of their last 10 by more than a touchdown. I had the Rams going 6-10 on the season, which makes them a perfect pain-in-the-Cowboys-neck team to be. RAMS
SAINTS (-14) over Colts. I have never seen one team so dependent on one player as the Colts are with Payton Manning. The Colts may go 0-16 this year. The Saints on the other hand are really pretty good. Saints here
RAVENS (-9) over Jaguars. If not for the Colts, the Jags would be the worst team in the NFL. And it’s almost Halloween. Cover the Ravens ever more. RAVENS
That's how i see it. Enjoy the games!
