Games We Love
NY Giants (+4.5) vs. Dallas Cowboys
The NY Giants travel to Dallas fresh off getting absolutely embarrassed on Sunday Night Football by the Eagles. Now they have to take on (according to Michael Irvin) the “best team in the NFL right now”. The best team is not even favored by a touchdown, which means the Cowboys shouldn’t even break a sweat on Sunday, easily covering the spread that is much too low. I mean, the Cowboys should at least be 10 point favorites after being 10 point dogs traveling into Seattle and coming out with a win.
The pick: NY Football Giants, take the points
Cincinnati Bengals (+3) vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Bengals, after starting strong, have faltered the last two games. They’ve given up a gazillion points to the Patriots and the Panthers. Now they have to play the greatest offense outside of Denver. Andrew Luck is a machine and he should be able to throw TD’s at will. The Colts have covered the spread an amazing 5 out of 6 games thus far this year. Why are they only 3 point favorites, shouldn’t this line be at least 8.5?
The pick: Bengals, take the points
Games We Like
Miami Dolphins (+3) vs. Chicago Bears
It’s hard to figure this game out. What Dolphins team is going to show up in Chicago? On the flip side, the Bears offense is simply dominating teams, but they only have a 1-2 record in the last three. However, last week, in Atlanta, their defense finally stepped up to the plate, shutting down Ryan and Julio Jones. Now that the defense is playing like the offense, the Dolphins should have no chance. Bills barely beat the Bears in week 1, then dominated the Dolphins in week 2, therefore the Bears should mostly dominate the Dolphins in week 7. That sounds logical right?
The pick: Dolphins, take the points
Seattle Seahawks vs. St. Louis Rams (+6.5)
The Rams haven’t covered a spread since Ronald Regan was president and they just got embarrassed on National television on Monday Night Football. Austin Davis completed like one pass in the second half. The Seahawks did get beat last week, so naturally, they are angry and are going to bring their best defense in football into St. Louis and tear some shit up! They traded their disgruntled WR to the Jets, so it should be smooth sailing for the defending World Champs.
The pick: Rams, take the points
Games We Find Interesting
Atlanta Falcons (+6.5) vs. Baltimore Ravens
The Falcons just got beat at home, now they have to travel to Baltimore to play a very tough Ravens squad. Flacco threw a record 12 TD’s last game vs. Bucs. The Falcons secondary is just as bad as Tampa. Flacco could throw 15 in this game.
The pick: Falcons, take the points
Arizona Cardinals vs. Oakland Raiders (+3.5)
The Cardinals are only favored by 3.5 points on the road against a terrible Raiders squad. Doesn’t seem high enough right?
The pick: Raiders, take the points
