Two minute drill or NFL Week 11 Like so many people your Prognosticator is scrambling like Fran Tarkenton to get things ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  This weekend to me seems busier than anytime during the Christmas Rush.  So we’ll get right down to business and pick games.  As always any losses incured by relying on the following information is not the responsibility of me, The Mountain, Entercom Communications, Entercom Northeast, it’s properties or its subsidiaries. Carolina (+11) over Baltimore.  I know, Carolina is plain bad, and the Ravens will make the playoffs.  But it’s one of the Prognosticator’s creeds: Double Digit Dogs at home in November and December cover a whopping 88% of the time.  Go Big Cats! 49ers(-3) over Buccaneers.  I am still not sold on the Bucs.  I am sold on Troy Smith. He beat Joe Flacco for the starting job In Baltimore before suffering an emergency appendectomy that derailed his career.  Flacco went on to guide the Ravens, Smith took his Heisman to San Francisco.  The Niners may get the better art of the deal.I am sold on the fact the Tampa clan are 7=19 ATS on grass, while the 49ers are a cover machine against teams with winning records, 10-3-2 ATS their last 15.  Works for me.   There’s gold in them California hills.  Take the Niners Denver (+10) over Chargers.  How does a 4-5 team get to be 10 point favorites?  If it wern;t for the Cowboys those Bolts would be the poster children for underperforming.  Take the Broncos Oakland (+10) Over Steelers.  Call it a tale of two cities….in week 11.  Oakland is 8-2 ATS their last 10 in week 11 while the Steelers are 1-9-2 ATS their last 12 in the same week.  That 10 point thing is pretty big, too, as in too much lumber to lay.  Just Cover Baby! Take the Raiders. Eagles (-3) over Giants.  The Giants that won the Superbowl a few years ago did it with two dominating lines.  Now those lines have injuries.  They looked really human against the Cowboys after I was about to give the Giants the nod of beast team in conference.  Not any more.  Michael Vick has 10 minutes every game where it just looks stupid-easy.  Besides, the Eagles are 11-4-1 ATS at home, while the Giants are  3-11 ATS their last 14 on the road, and 2-7 ATS their last 9 on grass.  Fly Eagles Fly. There you go.  Find time to relax this weekend. Your Prognosticator
