WEEK 16 NFL PICKS: SUNDAY’S BEST

A good start to the weekend for us with the Panthers pulling through for us against the Cowboys. With Saturday’s win, our season ATS record stands at 60-47-1. Here is what we like on Sunday:

Packers @ Bears +8.5: The Bears gave the Pack a surprising beatdown in their match-up earlier this year. The Pack have been dominant since then. Their only blemish was a debacle in Dallas. The Pack won’t make those mistakes again. However, the Bears are hungry to salvage something from this season. Kyle Orton gets the start again and the Bears D knows that the game is in their hands. They love playing Favre. Especially at home. We think they will be amped for this game. The Pack will win, but the Bears D will keep them in it. Plus, the nasty weather in the Windy City will help the Bears. Take the Bears +8.5.

Texans +7 @ Colts: The Texans have been up and down all year. The Colts are CRUSHED by injuries. They squeaked by the Raiders last week in Oakland. We think their injuries on D will produce the same result this week at home against the Texans. The Texans can score some points. They will score some more this week. Ignore the fact that the home team in this match-up is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings. Take the Texans +7.

Dolphins @ Patriots -22: Before last week, everyone was looking to this game for a Cinderella story and hoping that a winless Fins team could end the Pats run to perfection. The Ravens made sure that the Fins would not be winless coming into this game last week. The Patriots are going to make sure their run to perfection will stay in play this week. Not only will they win, they will win big. Don’t follow the public in this one. The Pats beat them by 21 in their match-up earlier this season in Miami. They will do better than that on Sunday. Take the Pats -22.

Redskins @ Vikings -6.5: The Vikings managed to win last Monday night against the Bears despite a ton of turnovers. They will remedy the turnovers this week. The Skins will be without Rocky McIntosh. This is huge. Look for Adrian Peterson to have a big game. Take the Vikings -6.5.

Falcons @ Cardinals -10: The Falcons are getting players back from injuries while the Cards are pretty banged-up. There were signs of a little turmoil in the Cards loss last week as Kurt Warner blew up on the sidelines at one of his offensive coaches. That said, the Falcons are a joke. Take the Cards -10.

Jets @ Titans -8.5: With this line and how these teams have played the past few weeks, we would LOVE to take the Jets here. However, the reality is that the Jets are just decimated by injuries. Kellen Clemens was injured last week and is not expected to play. Laveranues Coles is out. That is just too much for this Titans team at home. Take the Titans -8.5.

Browns -3 @ Bengals: The Bengals have been infuriating to watch this year. Are hearts go out to any Bengals fan. This season must be torture. They are at home this week against their in-state rival. Their last meeting was a huge shoot out. This week will not be the same. The key to this game will be the D’s. It will be a close game. We just think the Browns have more weapons on offense than the Bengals do. Plus, the Bengals D is much worse. Take the Browns -3.

Good luck with your picks.

NFL WEEK 15 PICKS: MONDAY NIGHT MADNESS

We are ready for some football! Another glorious Monday of football is upon us. It is amazing how fast the NFL season is flying by. We had a disappointing Sunday-going 4-5 and bringing our season record to 58-46-1. However, we do like Monday night’s game. Here is our take:

Bears +10.5 @ Vikings: The Bears are in shambles and look to Kyle Orton to salvage what’s left of their season. Orton has started games in the past, but it has been some time since he has seen meaningful playing time. All signs indicate that he has had a great week of practice and he seems to have used his time on the bench to know the offense cold. He will need all of his wits tonight as he looks to upset the heavily favored Vikings and their ferocious D. Pat Williams and Ken Williams have been monsters in the middle of that Vikings line. They should cause a lot of problems for Orton and the Bears offense.

However, the key to this game will be stopping Adrian Peterson and Tavaris Jackson. If the Bears can do that, they have a shot. Lately, they have not been able to stop anyone and the last time they saw Peterson, he crushed them. We think he will have another good game, but we think the Bears learned a lesson from the 49ers last week. The 9ers were able to make Peterson a non-factor. The Bears will do the same. We also think Jackson will come back down to earth. he is not as good as he has been. We think his play will balance itself out.

Ultimately, we think the Vikings will win. We just think the Bears will keep it close. Take the Bears +10.5.
