Result:  NYJets 17 - Houston 24

Result:  Cincinnati 31 - Arizona 34




-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Week 10


One guess this weekend.....


Football - 262 Philadelphia Eagles -6 Loss

Result:  Miami 20 - Philadelphia 19


Up 16-3 at one point early, Philadelphia not only didn't cover, but lost the game.

Of course losing our quarterback in the 3rd quarter didn't help. :(


Crazy weekend so far....just glad my gut said

go light this weekend.

Football - 472 New England Patriots -13½ = WIN

Result:  Jacksonville 17 - New England 51

Football - 474 Baltimore Ravens -2½  = Loss

Result:  Cincinnati 28 - Baltimore 24

Football - 481 San Francisco 49ers +6½ = Loss

Result:  San Francisco 7 - Arizona 47

Football - 484 Seattle Seahawks -15 = WIN

Result:  Chicago 0 - Seattle 26

Football - 490 Green Bay Packers -6½ = WIN

Result:  Kansas City 28 - Green Bay 38



No Play Thursday night.  The Giants are favored (1) because they are home, and (2) because they have beaten the Skins the last 4 meetings.  So far the Skins are at the top of their game in defense, so we will see if the Giants have anything to counter that tonight.  At 0-2 and the fact they were ahead and lost both games coming into this one, doesn't give me a lot of confidence in the Giants tonight.  I want to see more of the Skins also.  Well what do you know, the Giants won.  Good for them.

---------------------------------------------------------------


Week 2

Going with these in Week 2.


San Diego +3.5 at Cincinnati = Loss

Result:  San Diego 19 - Cincinnati 24

St. Louis -3 at Washington = Loss

Result:  St. Louis 10 - Washington 24

Seattle +3.5 at Green Bay = Loss

Result: Seattle 17 - Green Bay 27


You know the old saying "when it ceases to be fun, it's time to do something else"...



--------------------------------------------------------------

Week 1


I have no opinion on tonight's game (Thursday), as far as the

side or total.  So, no pick tonight.  


Good luck if you play it.


Turned out if you waited to play that game, it was a Push in garbage time

at the end at -7 on the Pats, with Pit getting a late TD.


Monday Night (early game):


 I want to see how most of these teams perform in the first week.  So, I am laying off the Sunday games and just going with one play on Monday.


Philadelphia -3 at Atlanta = Loss

Result Philadelphia 24 - Atlanta 26

Result:  Detroit 9 - New England 34

Green Bay -8 (Loss)

Denver -6.5 (Loss)

Result:  Miami 36 - Denver 39


Very disappointing Sunday.  Almost had the Denver game

until they allowed Miami a TD in final minutes, and then came

back with a sure TD themselves, but RB laid down short of

the goal to let the clock play out.  Lousy backdoor cover.


Two games Monday night.  Be back if I see anything I like.

Sunday Night, Oct. 12


NY Giants +1 (Loss)

Result: NY Giants 0 - Philadelphia 27


Let me just say.......$%#@&%$ !!!



Monday Night, Oct. 13


Let's try this again......


San Francisco -3.5 (WIN)

Result:  San Fran 31 - St. Louis 17



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WEEK 5


Sunday, Oct. 5


Dallas -6.5 (loss, win but no cover)

Result:  Houston 17 - Dallas 20


Both teams enter this game 3-1.  While Dallas has Seattle on deck next week, I am more concerned about the focus of Houston...as the Texans will have a quick turn around to play on Thursday vs. division rival Indianapolis.  The Colts are already 2 division wins ahead of Houston. 


Cleveland +1.5 (WIN)

Result:  Cleveland 29 - Tennessee 28


Have you noticed that 1-3 Cleveland only lost by 3 to Pittsburgh and 2 to Baltimore, and beat New Orleans?  I think this bye was needed.


Rams/Eagles OVER 47.5 (WIN)

Result:  St. Louis 28 - Philadelphia 34



Monday, Oct. 6


Seattle -7 (WIN)

Result:  Seattle 27 - Washington 17


---------


Thursday night, Oct. 2


Green Bay -8.5 (WIN)

Result:  Vikings 10 - Packers 42


Rain in the forecast, field could be messy, or not.  Still, taking Green Bay when they have pretty much a full complement of their key players.  Minnesota will have either Teddy Bridgewater or Christian Ponder at QB.  I am not waiting to hear, because it really doesn't matter to me.  We'll have to see if Rodgers is stymied by Minnesota's Zimmer defense.  


-------------------------------------------------------------------------


WEEK 4


Thursday night, Sept. 25

NYGiants at Washington


Obviously both teams will be fighting to avoid going 1-3, basically

a death sentence to even make the playoffs.  


I am hard pressed to find any value in the line or total.


Pass


********


Sunday, Sept. 28


Saints at Cowboys OVER 53.5 (WIN)

Final:  New Orleans 17 - Dallas 38

New Orleans now 1-3 and Cowboys 3-1.  I don't think

anyone expected that.


No play on Monday night

------------------------------------------------------------------------


WEEK 3



On a road trip this week, so picks will be later than usual.


Update:  Sorry, no picks this week.  See you for Week 4.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WEEK 2


Thursday, September 11, 2014

No play for this game.  I wasn't that impressed with either
team's performance last Sunday.
Remembering 9/11....God bless


Sunday day games, September 14, 2014

New Orleans Saints -6 (Loss)
Final:  New Orleans 24 - Cleveland 26
New Orleans is now 0-2 to start the season.  THAT was 
not expected.


Sunday night game, September 14, 2014

San Fran 49ers -7 (Loss)
Final:  Chicago 28 - San Francisco 20
Al Michaels said it best.  San Fran squandered an opportunity
to go one game ahead of Seattle, as they also lost today.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WEEK 1


Thursday, September 4, 2014


Green Bay at Seattle:  No play tonight

   

Thursday night's game showed us something about Seattle.  (1) They were not suffering from a Super Bowl slump, and (2) the offense has improved.  The "12th" man is still alive and well also.....always an advantage for them.


Sunday day games, September 7, 2014


I thought about passing on the first week of games, to sort of get a feel for the teams, and looking for improvements and downturns.  However, I decided to pick some home teams I feel have the best chance of winning their games this week.  Here are the teams and lines as of 4pm ET Saturday:


 Pittsburgh Steelers -7 (Loss)

Final:  Cleveland 27 - Pittsburgh 30

Leading 27-3 at the half, Pittsburgh allowed Cleveland to tie it up, and only

scored 3 pts the entire second half with the game winning field goal.  What a crock!

Philadelphia Eagles -10½ (Win)

Final:  Jacksonville 17 - Philadelphia 34

Jacksonville lead 17-0 at the half and then a miracle happened. Philadelphia

scored 34 unanswered points in the second half!


Chicago Bears -6½ (Loss)

Final:  Buffalo 23 - Chicago 20

Uhhhh....Bears, take notice.  Former defenses are embarrassed.

 

Sunday night, September 7, 2014


Denver Broncos -7½ (Loss)

Final:  Indianapolis 24 - Denver 31

The Broncos took a page from the Steelers' playbook.  Leading 24-7 at

the half, they allowed the Colts to come back with 17 while only

scoring 7 themselves in the second half.  Very disappointed in this one.


No Monday night plays this week.
