As Sy used to say, we'll rest when we're dead. Rest in peace old friend.
Buffalo Bills roll into Jag land and play the Jaguars in Jacksonville. Are these surprising Bills for real? The line is Jax -6, so we put +50 on the Bills to at least keep it close, and possibly downright win the game.
NE Patriots at the J...E...T...S. A rookie QB versus Brett Favre. Really. Why even bother? Jets are home favourities -2.5. Take the JETS +100. One thought- all last year the talk radios were inundated with the topic could the 72 Dolphins beat the 2007 Cheaters? Well now we get to see if the evil genius is a genius or a fake. The 72 Fins and Shula went undefeated with a back-up QB (Earl Morral and not Don Strock as any Fins Fan knows) going most of the way. Can the 2008 Patriots do the same thing? Nope.
Giants on the carpet at St. Louis. Over/Under is 42. We like the Giant D and the Giant way of playing football, which is run, run, run. +100 under 42.
Dolphins go to the Arizona to play the Cardinals. What did we say at the start of the season? Play the Dolphins under until you can't find a place to store the cash? The Fins game was under last week, and we will keep riding this gravy-train of offensive futility. Under 40. +50.
Green Bay rolls into Detroit. These are two teams going different ways. We told you we liked Aaron Rodgers and the Pack, and we think they keep it up and win by more than 4 against the Lions.
Pack -4 +200.
The suicide pool is set. See yesterdays post.
Sunday at 9:01 AM Rumpole changes his pick. Something about a Seahawks team with 4 starting WRS injured makes us nervous. We go on the road with the well rested Super Bowl Champs and take the Giants.
Rick Freedman with a last minute change to the Bucs, and Surf with a minute to spare, picks the Cardinals with an email at 3:59.
