Games We Love
Indianapolis Colts vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (+3)
The Colts are amazing. They come into this game on fire. They’ve covered the last 5 games and are rolling. Andrew Luck is the best QB in the NFL and he’s shredding defenses. They come off their complete dominance of the Bengals last week and nobody is stopping them. The Steelers come off a lucky win against the Texans on Monday night. If not for a short two minute stretch the Steelers would have lost…again. There is no way a suspect Steelers team keeps up with the surging Colts.
The pick: Steelers baby! Take the points.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers (+5)
The Seahawks don’t appear to be the Seahawks of last season, but that doesn’t stop the general public from loving the team. The Panthers team is falling apart and they have no running game to speak of. This means they’ll have to air the ball out into the teeth of the Seahawks Legion of Boom. It will not be a pretty day for Cam Newton. Wilson and his legs should easily cover the five point spread even if they don’t look as dominating as they did last year.
The pick: Panthers, take the points. Another great home dog.
Games We Like
Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals (-1)
The Ravens roll into Cincinnati looking for revenge for their week 1 embarrassment at the hands of the Bengals. The Bengals are definitely not the same team that they were in week 1, mostly because they are without dominating wide receiver, AJ Green. In addition, the offense is completely sputtering, after getting completely dominated by the Colts last week. Sense a pattern here?
The pick: Bengals, give the point, which is essentially a pick em game.
Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints (-1.5)
The Packers offense has been on fire since week 3 of the regular season. The Saints defense has not been. In what should be a high scoring affair, the Saints are somehow favored. Aaron Rodgers should be able to keep Cobb’s 85 game TD streak alive and well and blow out the Saints this week for their first home loss.
The pick: Saints, give the point and 1/2
Editor’s Note: 4-0 BABY!!!! Every pick correct.
