NFL Week 5
Another vanilla 3-3 week brings our total to 9-14. Time to start racking up some “W’s.” The tricky part for the next 4 weeks is a reduced schedule from teams having byes. Crazy that 6 of the 8 weeks have teams off, but not in a row. What a wacky league. Lets take a look at what’s up for this week. 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
EAGLES (-1.5) over Bills. Why are the Eagles favored and not the Bills? Vegas thinks the Eagles are still the Eagles and the Bills are still the Bills. I agree. Look for Philadelphia to gigure things out this week in a big way. Eagles
BUCCANEERS (+1) over 49ers. San Francisco wins one of the ugliest games seen in public by fans not wearing bags and they’re a favorite? Alex Smith almost got benched in the second half before stumbling on to 3 touchdowns. I like the Bucs big, over the past three years they’ve been cover monsters on the road. As they announcer used to crow in the old big sombrero, “TAAAAAAM-PAAAAH!”
CHARGERS(-3 ½) over Broncos. The favorite has covered in 6 of the last 9 in the series and that favorite is usually Sand Diego. The thing about Denver is no one is afraid of them anymore. San Diego Super chargers…
GIANTS (-11) over Seahawks. Normally I would stay away from this game. I try to pick Eagles, Giants, Steelers and Jets, plus Sunday and Monday nights, as those are the teams and games people tend to follow. This spread is really fat. On the other hand, the Seahawks have real problems. Tavris Jackson is, well, he’s not that good, That 1pm new York start time is not to favoring for those bay birds either. Giants in a romp.
STEELERSs (-3) over Titans. You know, I would roll with the powder blue here, but Kenny Britt on injured-reserve sways me to Pittsburgh. Be careful, these Steelers are suffering the post superbowl runner up hangover. Steelers.
FALCONS (+6) over Packers. All you need know about the Falcons is Matt Ryan is 22-2 at home. Those dirty birds are relentless. Falcons
JETS (+10) over Patriots. Psst, there’s a blood fued between these teams, and the Patriots aren’t as good as people like to believe.. jets cover
LIONS (-5) over Bears. Once they dumped Matt Millon the Lions stock piled great players with those last place drafts. Pick first a few years in a row and you’ll have a stud team, too. Lions
That’s how I see it, enjoy your games
