Well this is a sad day as we bring the curtain down on another NFL season and now we get ready for the playoffs this weekend. As you know I keep separate stats for the regular season not only in the NFL but also the college regular season and the bowl season. My Giants did me in the last game by actually showing up to play the Redskins, but they won so I guess that I will live with that. As for the Buffalo Bills they are in the playoffs for the first time in forever, LOL. I am very happy to say that I ended up in the black with both my best bets and regular plays and that is saying something with the season that we just had. So below are my final stats for this 2017 NFL regular season. Thanks for following me and I hope I can win you some money in the playoffs. I would also like to give a shoutout to Sean Mesick who is the grandson of a very dear friend of mine. GO CUSE HOCKEY BEAT MICHIGAN !!

And as always - Remember to bet with your head and not over it. 

 

This is a very sad day indeed as it is the last week of  the regular NFL football season. Our football season comes and goes so fast it's hard to believe that in a little over a month we have to go thru withdrawl again. BUT it is what it is and I guess I will just have to suck it up. I must admit after first looking at the lines for this week's games I really can't find a lot that I like, but I will give it my best shot. So with great sadness here are my picks for this last week of the regular season in the NFL. 

 

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET is on the WASHINGTON REDSKINS on the road giving 3 points to the New York Giants. I am so disappointed in my Giants this year and after more chaos with the Eli Apple situation this week I can't se how they could possibly be focused on this game. I think the Redskins win this game by double digits and it will bring to a close one of the worst seasons in Giants history. I am making Washington my FIRST BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the MINNESOTA VIKINGS at home spotting the Chicago Bears 11 points. The Vikings clinch a first round bye with a win here and I think they will take control of this game from the get go and win this game and not have to wait till the afternoon games to back into a first round bye. The Vikes defense will either shutout the Bears or maybe allow a late td. The Vikings are my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS on the road giving 5 points to the Tampa Bay Bucs. I know this is a must win for the Saints and usually that is not a good scenario this time of the year, but something tells me that the Saints with Brees and his running backs as well as his receivers will pull this one off and get a home game in the playoffs.  The Saints are my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My LAST BEST BET is on the PITTSBURGH STEELERS at home giving 6 points to the Cleveland Browns. There is no doubt in my mind that the starters for the Steelers will not be playing this whole game or even part of it. However, I can't see their second stringers being the team that the Browns beat to get off the snide, so I like the Steelers here to cover this small number and leave Cleveland winless this year. The Steelers are my LAST BEST BET.
 
 
 
 
REGULAR PLAYS

As for regular plays I like the San Francisco 49ers on the road giving the Los Angeles Rams 4 points. Other regular plays I like are Indianapolis at home giving the Houston Texans 5 points. I also like the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road getting 3 points from the Tennessee Titans. I like the Los Angeles Chargers at home spotting the Oakland Raiders 7 points. And finally for my last pick in the regular season I like the Buffalo Bills on the road giving 2 points to the Miami Dolphins.

 

 

I will be back very late Sunday night with college bowl picks on the last 5 bowl games before the college championship game on January 8th. 

 

I hope everyone has a very safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR. 

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

Well sometimes it is better to be lucky as the Eagles covered the line with only 45 seconds left in a game that put most of to sleep. My poor Brownies can't get out of their own way and the Giants are just plain awful. So below are my stats for this week and for the entire season.

 

WEEK 16 STATS

BEST BETS              2-2 ATS and  3-1 SU

REGULAR PLAYS   1-4 ATS and 2-3 SU

 

2017 SEASON STATS

BEST BETS              30-23-3 ATS and 38-16-2 SU

REGULAR PLAYS  34-34-2 ATS and 40-29-1 SU

 

 

I will be back on Thursday night with more bowl picks for this week and back Saturday night with my picks for the last week in the NFL. 

 

 

And as always - Remember to bet with your head and not over it. 

 

So I come into Sunday with a best bet win on Baltimore SU but not ATS and not knowing the result of the Minnesota game. I do like a few more of the games this week so below are my picks for the rest of this NFL weekend.

 

 

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET was on the BALTIMORE RAVENS not a winner. 

 

My NEXT BEST BET was on the MINNESOTA VIKINGS and I do not know the result at this time.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the DETROIT LIONS on the road giving 4 points to the Cincinnati Bengals. I once again feel that when a team scores only 24 points in the last 3 games that they pretty much have given up. Surprisingly Detroit is 5-2 SU this season on the road so with the line at 4 I like the Lions to have this game in hand by halftime. The Eagles are my NEXT BEST BET.

 

My LAST BEST BET is on the PHILADLPHIA EAGLES at home giving 8 points to the Oakland Raiders on Monday night. I know by the time this game starts the Eagles will know if they are in a must win situation, my guess is that they will need this game as Minnesota in all probabililty won on Saturday. The Eagles are currently 5-0 ATS at home this year and I dont' see that changing. Oakland is usually a team I bet against as they don't travel well across country. The Eagles will take control of this game early and keep the Raiders at bay and will get the cover. The Eagles are my LAST BEST BET.
 
 
 
 
REGULAR PLAYS

As for regular plays I like the Los Angeles Rams on the road giving the Tennessee Titans 6 points. Other regular plays I like are Dallas at home giving the Oakland Raiders 4 points. I also like the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road giving the San Francisco 49ers 4 points.. I like the New Orleans Saints at home spotting the Atlanta Falcons 5 points. And finally for the first time this year I like the Cleveland Browns on the road getting 7 points from the Chicago Bears, it would be a nice Christmas present for the Brownies. 

 

 

I will be back very late Monday night or early Tuesday morning with more college bowl picks. I will also be back late Saturday night with my last NFL regular season picks.

 

I hope everyone has a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.

Well these 2 games on Saturday poses interesting questions. Do the Ravens play hard enough to just win or do they blow the Colts away, who really don't care?  Do the Packers now without Aaron care less if Minnesota wins and covers? I myself think that both Baltimore and Minnesota will win this week. So below are my picks for the 2 games on Saturday.

 

BEST BETS

My FIRST BEST BET is on the BALTIMORE RAVENS at home giving 12 1/2 points to the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have nothing to play for and haven't for awhile as they are on a 5 game losing streak and have to come out of the dome to play a team that has upped their offensive play the past few weeks and are still in the playoff hunt. No question to me who is going to win, the only question is, by how much and I think 2 tds is very doable so make this my FIRST BEST BET.

 

My NEXT BEST BET is on the MINNESOTA VIKINGS on the road giving 9 points to the Green Bay Packers. Even though this game is in Green Bay, I just don't feel that the Packers will play hard, I think they will play to not sustain anymore injuries. I like the Vikings to win this game by at least 2 touchdowns and keep the pressure on Philly for the topspot in the NFC. I am making Minnesota my NEXT BEST BET.

 

REGULAR PLAYS

NONE until Saturday night. 

 

I will be back Saturday night with the rest of this week in the NFL.

 

And as always  - Remember to bet with your head and not over it.
