Tampa Bay at (Washington+1)
The Redskins Peter Northed Albert Haynesworth this week. Although he hasn't been officially released or traded, getting rid of that huge load will do wonders for their locker room, and we're sure sideline rat will do what he can to prove that point.
Although the Bucs record may indicate that they're a winner, we feel both teams are about equally shitty. The Bucs haven't beaten a team with a winning record, and are currently on a two game slide. The Redskins have shown spurts of ability, but ultimately are the 5-7 team that their record reflects, and they too are riding a two game losing streak.
We do like the Skins here as a slight dog, in what is supposed to be a cold, wet day at Fucked Ex Field. Trust us when we tell you, that Team Shanahan will try to throw the ball down field, as part of their new look, Albert Haynesworth-less offense. The result will be points, and turnovers. Look for a combination of at least two defensive and/or special teams scores here, and include the Over 40.5 when playing this game. 27-20 Redskins.
(Green Bay -6.5) at Detroit
Last time these two teams met, the Pack had a two touchdown lead twice, and twice almost blew that lead, eventually holding on to win 28-26. In today's game, with the Pack a game behind da Bears (who get the Patriots today in a blizzard), and needing to probably win out to win the division, it will be Dandy Don's "turn out the lights, the party's over" for the Lions.
Its been 11 games since the Lions beat the Pack. And in the ten losses since, the Pack have won those games by an average of 13.3 points. The Aaron Rodgers/Mike McCarthy combo has covered 5 straight in December. They've also covered 4 straight coming in, and if not for last minute Matt Ryan heroics, would be riding a 6 game winning streak.
The cream rises to the top come playoff season. Do yourself a favor, and load up on this one. Packers.
Atlanta at (Carolina+7.5)
Just prior to giving out the Raiders last week, in what ended up being a Charger ass thumping of epic proportions, we told you that the NFL is a strange, befuddling entity. And trust us when we tell you, this is a game that will make bookies across the country, wet dream like happy.
The Falcons have become everyone's NFC pick to represent in Big D come February. But they do play more close to the vest games once they're out of their domed element, and we don't like them laying 7 and a hook, on the back end of consecutive roadies.
The Panthers are awful, no doubt. And we're not even going to try and make a case for a 1-11 team who is playing most likely the NFC Super Bowl representative. But this point spread reeks of suckerdom, which tells us that Falcon buyers beware. Panthers.
Philadelphia at (Dallas+3.5)
This trend of ours to play against Philly is not just because we hate Mike Vick, but because they're not that great a team, and will be early exiters come January. Take that to the bank.
The Cowboys have responded well to the guy who looks cool when he throws the challenge flag onto the field. In fact, if not for Roy Williams getting stripped like a Beamer parked in Southeast DC, the douchebags with stars on their helmets would be undefeated under their new leader.
Listen folks, Mike Vick lit up a not so great Redskin team on a national stage, and then all the assholes at ESPN (and most of the mainstream media) wanted to hand him the key to Bristol. Mike Greenberg practically sodomized Vick on air last week, when passionately defending his right to play after doing time for drowning and electrocuting dogs.
The Boys own Philly. They've won 3 straight against them, and 4 of the last 5. Ride the wave of Garrett's undefeated ATS record. Dallas wins outright.
Last Week 3-1 ATS
YTD 30-18-2 ATS
