NFL WEEK SIXTEEN
We're up 1039 Blakes for the year, and feeling pretty good. Let's play some more prevent defense and protect our lead.
Are the NY Giants, losers of the last two games that bad? Does losing Buress really affect the G-Men? We think not. They're 3 point favorites over the NFC's number two team- the Carolina Panthers. Take the G Men at home to right the ship and lock up home field for the playoffs.
Giants -3 + 100.
The Fins go to KC in a continuation of their unlikely bid for "worst to first." We think the Fins can win this game, but not by 4. The better number is the 41 O/U. Take the under big time. Under 41 +200. If that number has dropped, and it probably has here's some advice- under 40 +150, under 39- + 125, under 38 +100. The higher number the bigger the bet here. Shop around.
Arizona at NE. The Patriots will win, but 9 is a big number. Why, because there will be bad weather in NE this weekend. The over/under is 44. The worse the weather, the higher the bet. Dan Marino likes to say "if it's snowing, I'm throwing" but the reality is a that a team from the desert does not do well in cold, snowy, windy December New England weather. Under 44 +100.
Anybody trying a case this week? How about the chief judges shutting the system down for two weeks to save some money? Nothing can be going on in civil court, although we're sure family is hopping.
In Criminal court bring back Gerry Klein, give him a court room and a clerk and a court reporter and a PD and an ASA and let him clear out everyones' arraignments and reports. And he'd do it before 11 and he'd be on the golf course by noon. But who wants efficiency these days when we have Circuit Judges who have 100+ page calendars?
Can't say I'll see you in court tomorrow because I won't.
