NFL Week 8: The Cream is Rising. Huh-Huh... Huh-Huh...Huh-Huh...
The world must be right. Bevis and Butthead is back on TV and following last week's 3-0 shutout, yours truly is now 5 games over .500. The J-E-T-S gave us a scare, but our other two winners- the Panthers and Vikings, were pretty much non-sweats. We're taking our talents on the road to Vegas this weekend, and we're bringing our dogs with us. Ruff, ruff.
New Orleans at St.Louis(+13.5)
Ironically enough, the 62 points the Saints posted last weekend against that team Peyton Manning used to carry on his back, was also the same amount(62)of Vicodin pills that injured Saints coach Sean Payton popped during said game.
This is nothing more than a "due" play. I'm not going to try and make a case for how much I love the Rams, because they do in fact suck. How effing bad are they? Well, besides their 0-6 record, in their last 4 losses, they've scored 7,10,3, and 7 points, for a total of 27 over that span. The Saints scored 27 during halftime of their game last week, for Christ's sake.
The Saints are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 vs. a team with a losing record. They're 1-6 ATS in their last 7 as road favorites. Take the points, and don't be surprised if by some strange reason, any given Sunday, the Rams are still in this game in the 4th quarter. Rams
Jax(+10) at Houston
The Jags have been in every game they've played except one, their Week 2 ass whuppin' they took at the hands of the Jets. The Texans have lost 3 of their last 5, and even though they manhandled the Titans last week, they're 1-6 ATS in their last 7 following a SU win.
We like the Jags getting almost double digits. Their 6th ranked defense will allow no more than 20 points in this spot, and we're banking on Blaine to post 10 or 13 points for the cover. Texans win, but not by much. Jaguars
Washington(+6) at Buffalo
The Redskins are starting to resemble a MASH unit. Five offensive starters are either on IR or in the hurt locker. Mike Shanahan told reporters on Monday that its times like these when he gets inspired by Dr. Spencer Johnson's Who Moved My Cheese?, as it helps him plow through adversity.
We're not sold on the Bills. They've cooled off from their 3-0 start, having lost 2 of their last 3. And their defense is very suspect. Currently 31st, you need to look no further than the Bills last 5 games. Beginning with Week 2, the Bills have given up consecutively 35,31,23,24, and 27 points. In their last 7 as a road dog of 3.5-10 points, the Redskins are 6-1 ATS. Redskins
Last Week 3-0 ATS
YTD 14-9-2 ATS
