NFL Week 16: Winners For a Snowy Sunday Afternoon

Congratulations to all the gamblers out there who have followed this blog all season, and more importantly, have consistently bet our NFL point spread picks. Coming off an impressive 3-0 weekend last Sunday, which included two underdog selections who won out right, The Sportsyack is a sizzling 34-21-3 ATS for the season!

The only thing hotter than our picks right now, is Rex Ryan sitting in a podiatrist's office waiting room with his wife's big toe shoved up his ass, as he pleasures himself to Foot Fetish Monthly.

God, that's disgusting. Sorry.

Anyway, with two weeks of regular season ball to go, and a month of playoff action on the horizon, we're certainly not going to rest on our laurels now. We have taken down our Christmas tree, returned all the stupid fucking gifts we didn't want in the first place, and we've handicapped an eggnog hangover's worth of winners for you. Are you ready for some football?!?!?!


New England at (Buffalo+9)
We know everyone is back in love with the Pats, and this is probably not a popular pick. But we're not sold on New England's 28th ranked defense, nor do we like how the Pats kept the Bills around in the 1st meeting between these two, back in September.

Expect a letdown here from the Pats. Two straight weeks of swinging their dick around, and showing NFC opponents Green Bay and Chicago how Brady and Belichick play football, this game has upset potential written all over it.

We like what the Bills have done over the last month and a half. They've won 2 in a row, 4 of 6, and it should read 5 of their last 6, be it not for Steve Johnson's TD drop against Pittsburgh. The Bills are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games, and have covered 4 straight at home. We like the points, and would even consider a ML bet. Buffalo



Washington/Jacksonville (Over 46)
The number one reason we like the over here, is because the total seems unusually high to us, as if Vegas is begging you to play the under. In fact, the Redskins have not been in a contest all year, in which Vegas' Over/Under Total was this high. On the flip side, this will be the Jags 3rd total of 46 or higher this season, and 7 of their last 8 contests have gone Over the Vegas total.

We expect the Redskins defense to be its usual self, which means yielding lots of yards. We also expect the Redskins new look, Rex Grossman (teacher's pet) led offense, to do its best to keep up. The Jags defense is no great shakes either, ranked 26th in the league. So in honor of each team's defense, we predict the final score to be Jags 32, Skins 26. Over 46


Houston at (Denver +2.5)
The Texans have lost 3 in a row, and 7 of their last 8. The Broncos have lost 5 in a row, and 9 of their last 10. Why would we play this game, between two teams heading in the wrong direction? Tangibles, baby, tangibles.

(1)Tim Tebow, rookie Quarterback (2)Denver playing with an interim coach who is playing without a care (3)The under performing Texans, playing for a coach whose on his way out. These 3 tangibles, baby, are a recipe for disaster if you're Texans fan.

Colin Cowherd spent the week bashing Tim Tebow, which is what he does best, when not bashing John Wall, which is what he does best when not kissing LeBron's ass, which is what he does best when not talking in that odd, dramatic voice, as he tells you "we told you so". (@JudgePatrick does a sick Cowherd impression, btw)

Christ was born 2010 years and 1 day ago. Tim Tebow just turned 23 in August. We're not sure that he's going to die for our sins, but we have more faith in his abilities than Michelle Beadle's sidekick does. 26-20 Broncos


Last Week 3-0 ATS

YTD 34-21-3 ATS
