I don't know how you've done it, but you've stumbled around original content on The FAN's website! Reap your rewards by using my NFL picks to break even this weekend. The spreads are based on a confidence pool league I'm in through Yahoo.
Last Week: 8-7 Year To Date: 93-92-5
16 points - Cincinnati (-6.0) over Cleveland
I was watching on Facebook this week a video game simulation done by the folks at Bleacher Report where the Browns actually lost to Alabama. I won't credit them with a link because when I was writing a blog they would take my articles and plaster "by Bleacher Report staff" with no credit to me, so screw them. But I'm starting to think - and I know it's terrible - that Alabama could win! They are a lot better than the best college football teams I've seen in recent memory, and the Browns are a lot worse than the worst NFL teams I've seen. So I know that argument shouldn't be had, EVER, but I think this year might be the year!
15 points - New Orleans (+2.5) over Tampa Bay
Saints are struggling and the Buccaneers are hot, so the trends would lead you to believe that Tampa will win this game. But the NFC South is weird and I like bucking trends, so I'll take the Saints.
14 points - Indianapolis (-6.0) over Houston
Seems like a great game to nap through before the Packers game.
13 points - Atlanta (-6.0) over Los Angeles
Rams are in line for some 4-12 bullsh&t.
12 points - New England (-7.0) over Baltimore
Tom Brady to Macolm Mitchell please! (fantasy playoffs, of course)
11 points - Pittsburgh (-2.0) over Buffalo
Commence the annual Pittsburgh gets hot before the playoffs stretch.
10 points - Denver (-1.0) over Tennessee
I just don't see Denver letting this one slip away when they need wins to keep up in a very good AFC West.
9 points - Minnesota (-3.5) over Jacksonville
Don't count out Minnesota in this NFC North race that we all assume is a two team race. They have the 3rd easiest remaining schedule in the league!
8 points - New York Jets (+2.5) over San Francisco
Seems like a great game to nap through if you're at the game.
7 points - San Diego (+1.0) over Carolina
Carolina's season is over.
6 points - Washington (even) over Philadelphia
Philadelphia's season is about to be over.
5 points - Arizona (+1.0) over Miami
Don't count out the Cardinals in the NFC Playoff race!
4 points - Detroit (-7.5) over Chicago
The spread seems high, but Detroit will keep on rolling.
3 points - Dallas (-3.0) over New York Giants
Could the Giants hand the Cowboys their second loss of the season and be the only team to do so? Could me asking this question prevent me from having to make a comment on the game?
