The only good thing about this past weekend is that the Giants didn't lose as they were on a bye, other than that my picks were a travesty. I have nothing good to say about this past weeknd so here are my stats for week 9 in the NFL.

 

WEEK 9 NFL STATS

BEST BETS    0-2 ATS and 1-1 SU

Regular Plays 1-1 ATS and 1-1 SU

Underdogs     0-2 ATS and 0-2 SU

Over/Unders  1-2 ATS

 

 

NFL OVERALL STATS

BEST BETS      9-15 ATS and 16-8 SU

Regular Plays 10-10-1 ATS and 12-9 SU

Underdogs      7-16-1 ATS  and 5-19 SU

Over/Unders    14-13 ATS

 

I will be back on Thursday with a pick on the Washington/Minnesota game and then back on Saturday with the rest of my pro picks, so until then have a great week.

 

Ya know I should have seen Monday night coming but I'm sure like most people we were licking our chops with Seattle giving under 2 TDs to the Rams with a 2nd string qb. I will remember from now on that Seattle is just not the same team on the road that it is at home. Of course starting 2 rookies on the offensive line didn't help and losing Rice in the game just made matters even worse. Oh well it is what it is. I am putting this out Thursday as I am picking the Bengals as a regular play. So onto my NFL picks for week 9 and because this is the 2nd week in a row that 6 teams have a bye there will be less picks. 

 

 

My first best bet this weekend is on the DALLAS COWBOYS at home giving the Minnesota Vikings 10 points. I am sure the Cowboys are going to have a chip on their shoulder after losing a heartbreak last week in Detroit and not let the Vikes even get close enough to have a chance to win the game late. The whole Dez Bryant fiasco I'm sure didn't help matters but I'm sure it will help him get the ball a whole lot more this weekend. The home team in this series is 4-0 ATS last 4 meetings and the favorite is 9-0 ATS last 9, so the stats are definitely favoring the Cowboys. The Vikings are also 0-3 on the road this year and of course it always helps that the Vikings are just a God awful team this year, except for Peterson, but if they fall behind Peterson is taken out of the game which will not help the Vikes either. So with that I am making the Dallas Cowboys my first BEST BET.

 

My next best bet and last one this week is on Monday night on the GREEN BAY PACKERS at home giving the Chicago Bears 10 1/2 points. Talk about a team that just doesn't function well on offense without their qb, the Bears are definitely the epitome of this. Their defense is also struggling giving up almost 30 ppg and with Rodgers at the helm for the Packers this is not good news. A stat definitely stands out as the Bears are 1-4 ATS the last 5 games in Green Bay. With the Bears injuries on defense as well as Cutler being out on their offense, I am making the Packers a BEST BET.

  

As for regular plays I like the Cincinnati Bengals on the road on Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins to cover the 3 points, and I like the New England Patriots at home giving the Pittsburgh Steelers 6 points.

 

My underdog plays this week are the St. Louis Rams at home getting a point from the Tennessee Titans, and the Buffalo Bills at home getting 3 points from the Kansas City Chiefs.

 

My over/under plays for this week are - Kansas City Chiefs/Buffalo Bills over 40New Orleans Saints/New York Jets over 45 1/2, and last but not least the Chicago Bears/Green Bay Packers over 49 1/2 on Monday night.

 

Well that's it for this weekend and as always,

 

Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

 

Finally my Giants have won 2 in a row and can actually finish 10-6, yeah and if hell freezes over we could walk on it. LOL I'm beginning to think you might be better off betting more on my regular plays than on my best bets as once again I did better on my regular plays as the Seahawks looked awful away from home and the game had no chance of going over. Anyway, below are my stats for week 8 in the NFL.

 

WEEK 8 NFL STATS

BEST BETS    1-1 ATS and 2-0 SU

Regular Plays 2-0 ATS and 2-0 SU

Underdogs     0-2 ATS and 0-2 SU

Over/Unders  2-1 ATS

 

 

NFL OVERALL STATS

BEST BETS      9-13 ATS and 15-7 SU

Regular Plays   9-9-1 ATS and 11-8 SU

Underdogs      7-14-1 ATS  and 5-17 SU

Over/Unders    13-11 ATS

 

I might be back on Thursday with a pick on the Cincy/Miami game otherwise I will be back on Saturday with my pro picks, so until then have a great week.

 

Well it seems that NFL games this year are not for the faint of heart as there have been in my estimation more upsets then I can remember in years. As for the call in the Pats/Jets game are you kidding me, what the heck was that?? There wasn't a snowball's chance that field goal was going to be good, so why call a penaly that in my 50 years of watching football I never heard called, I don't get it. Anyway, enough ranting about bogus calls here are my picks for this week in the NFL, there are only a few as 6 teams are on byes this week and I didn't have a pick on the Carolina/Tampa Bay game and I'm still trying to figure out why as the Panthers have been on a roll and the Buc are winless.

 

My first best bet this weekend is on the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS on the road on Monday night giving the St. Louis Rams 11 points. If Sam Bradford was the QB in this game I might think this was a more difficult pick but Clemens starting well I just don't see the Rams in this game with him at the helm seeing he hasn't started a game since 2011. The Seahawks have the 49ers breathing down their necks and they just can't afford to lose a game especially to a 2nd string quarterback. I look for them to take control of this game early and stay in front until the final gun. My money this week is on the Hawks as my first BEST BET.

 

My next best bet and last one this week is on the SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS on the road giving the Jacksonville Jaguars 14 1/2 points. I just wish I could say something positive about the Jags but I just can't they are just plain awful, even worse than my Giants. I will use the same philosphy on this game that I did on my other best bet and that is the 49ers just can't lose to a team like the Jags. Kapernick is finally coming out of his slump and the offense and defense are coming to life. That is not good news for Jacksonvile who are trying to lose the goose egg. Look for the 49ers to run and pass on the Jags D and put this game away sometime in the second half. I am making the 49ers a BEST BET.

  

As for regular plays I like the New Orleans Saints at home against the Buffalo Bills to cover the 11 points, and I like the New England Patriots at home giving the Miami Dolphins 6 1/2 points.

 

My underdog plays this week are the Atlanta Falcons on the road at Arizona getting a point, the Washington Redskins on the road at Denver getting 13 points.

 

My over/under plays for this week are - Washington Redskins/Denver Broncos over the 58 1/2Buffalo Bills/New Orleans Saints over 48, and last but not least the Seattle Seahakws/St. Louis Rams over 42 1/2.

 

Well that's it for this weekend and as always,

 

Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

 

OMG the Giants finally won a game but in my view it was a gift from the Minnesota Vikings as I just can't figure out why they would have started Freeman over Cassel or Ponder as he just did not have enough time with the team to do know the offense to be helpful. Once the Giants shutdown Peterson the game was the Giants to win or lose. As for the Pats game what a ticky tacky call to make on a field goal that really had no chance. Sometimes I think these games are fixed, but I try and put that out of my head. Anyway, below are my stats for week 7 in the NFL.

 

WEEK 7 NFL STATS

BEST BETS    1-2 ATS and 1-2 SU

Regular Plays 2-1 ATS and 2-1 SU

Underdogs     1-2 ATS and 1-2 SU

Over/Unders  2-1 ATS

 

 

NFL OVERALL STATS

BEST BETS      8-12 ATS and 13-7 SU

Regular Plays   7-9-1 ATS and 9-8 SU

Underdogs      7-12-1 ATS  and 5-14 SU

Over/Unders    11-10 ATS

 

I will be back on Saturday with my pro picks and best bet write-ups, as I am pretty sure I will not be picking the Thursday game. There will be less picks this week as there are 6 teams on a bye. Enjoy your week.
