NFL Week 17: A New Year’s Day Finale To The Season


With a 3-2 record last week, the season enters it’s final week with a record in this spot of 38-35-6. A little cushion to finish over .500, but with so many teams without much to play for in week 17, it’s a confusing spot to be in. I’ll say goodbye to the 2016 season (and 2016) with these final five picks: Houston Texans +3 over Tennessee Titans (1pmET) – The Texans have secured...

NFL Week 16: Merry Christmas For Anyone Who Plays The Browns and Bears


The comeback continues, with a 3-1-1 week last week to move to 35-34-6 overall. It’s been largely thanks to taking road teams, and almost always road favorites. Let’s continue with the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day festivities: Christmas Eve: San Diego Chargers -4 over Cleveland Browns (1pmET) – Going against the Browns has proven to be one of the most reliable choices you can...

NFL Week 15: When In Doubt, Put Your Faith In Rodgers and Roethlisberger (And Whoever The Browns Play)


Well, after 14 weeks, I finally hit a perfect 5-0 – just in time to bring the overall record to 32-33-5 and almost .500. This week, we’ll ride the road teams again, especially the favorites – a plan that worked last week. Here are the five picks: Green Bay Packers -5.5 over Chicago Bears – Aaron Rodgers may be hurt, but he finally has the Packers playing well and firing on all...

NFL Week 14: The Road (Teams) Less Traveled


With just four weeks left of the regular season, teams are mostly settled along a path of consistency. There are the great teams – like the Cowboys and Patriots, the awful teams – like the 49ers and Browns, and the teams fighting for a playoff slot – like the Colts and the Packers. With that in mind, week 14 should, in theory, be an easier week to predict. Not the end of the...

NFL Week 13: Chiefs, Giants and Panthers Should Prevail (Or At Least Keep It Close)


Thanksgiving’s games were closer than expected, and so the point differential was key – that meant my 1-2 record during the turkey eating was due to missing the margin by a total of just 2.5 points. Let’s turn things around in lucky number week 13, and improve on the overall record of 25-30-5. Kansas City Chiefs +5.5 over Atlanta Falcons (1pmET): The Chiefs won an incredible...

NFL Week 12: Three Thursday Games To Watch While You Avoid Talking Politics


This year, even more than others, it’s important to keep politics away from the Thanksgiving table. And this year, even more than others, it will be a difficult task. Here’s one solution – football! Last week’s 2-2-1 record moved the overall record here to 24-26-5 – here are week 12’s five picks, including the three Thanksgiving games: Thanksgiving games:...

NFL Week 11: Dolphins and Redskins Keep Rolling, Pats To Win Close


We’ve seen 10 weeks of football – nine from most teams. Are the Dallas Cowboys really legit, or will they hit a wall when they face the tough Baltimore Ravens defense? Are the Tennessee Titans really a contender to win the AFC South, or will they be exposed against a week Indianapolis Colts team? Well, the truth is, I don’t have those answers, so we’re going a different...

NFL Week 10: Trump Fans on the Patriots Get A Yuge Win, Cowboys Keeps Rolling


We’ve worked our way past the halfway point of the NFL season, and teams are starting to emerge as better, or worse, than we thought they were. With that, the NFL lines have been closer than ever, as a large number of pretty good teams have bunched up in the middle. What does that mean for the week 10 lines? Well, we’ll see, and take my 21-20-4 (now winning) record with us: Minnesota...
