NFL Week 11: We Continue To Pummel Our Man
Buffalo at Miami(Under 44)
The Dolphins somehow are favorites for the second week in a row, after starting their season 0-7. Buffalo has lost 3 out of 4, after starting off 4-1. We're not quite sure how the Bills are dogs in this spot, and that is exactly why we're staying away from a side here. However, the total is quite appealing. The Dolphins have played in 8 straight unders, and these two teams have played 4 of 5 unders in the last 5 played in South Beach. Play the Under, and if you're really bored, play a Buffalo/Under parlay and/or tease.
Oakland at Minnesota(-1)
This game doesn't look sexy on paper, but I've been looking at this game all week, and I can't contain my Adrian Peter, son. The Vikings are back home in the friendly confines of a building whose roof collapsed last winter. The last time they played at home, they took a 17-13 lead into halftime against the undefeated Packers, and then you can guess what happened next. In fact, the maligned 2-7 Vikings have blown 5 second half leads this year, 3 of which have come at home.
Oakland sucks, just like the rest of the AFC West. They've lost 2 of 3, all to other AFC West shitty teams, and now they're on the road (for the second straight week) against an NFC team whose record is a bit deceptive.
The before mentioned Adrian Peterson, and his 4.7 yards per carry, will have a field day against the league's 25th ranked run defense. And don't sleep on Jared Allen's league leading 13.5 sacks. Carson Palmer and his, "I don't need to play, I have enough money in the bank" schtick, will be up close and personal with Allen and the other Purple People Eaters all day. This is a friggin boat race. Vikings
San Diego at Chicago(-3.5)
I wasn't sure why the Bills were dogs at Miami, but I'm sure as to why the Bears are only laying 3.5 at home to a horseshit Chargers team; Vegas has no faith in Jay Cutler. Or maybe he's getting no credit, as the Bears scored 21 non offensive generated points last week, in the butt thumping they gave divisional foe Detroit.
In any case, the Bears have won 4 in a row, and 5 out of their last 6. And during this 4 game winning streak, Cutler has thrown just 2 picks. Hell, Rex Grossman has throw two picks from the time I started writing this post, and that fat bastard is sitting at home eating Oreo cookie ice cream.
Have a little faith in Cutler, folks. He's not turning the ball over, he's being protected, and the Bears defense and special teams speak for themselves (see last week). The Chargers have lost 4 in a row, and are going nowhere fast. And you NEVER BET ON NORV. Bears
Last Week 2-1 ATS
YTD 20-11-3 ATS
