The Rules are simple- pick one team each week to win the game. No point spread involved. Once you use that team you cannot use it again the rest of the year.
This will be our fourth year picking football games, and we put our record up against the very best touts who sell their services. We have had a winning and profitable season every season, but we can tell you that this year looks tough. In the past we have identified certain trends or reverse trends where we spotted teams that were over rated or under rated and made a lot of money early in the season until the rest of the public caught on and the lines were adjusted.
We are not seeing too many of those as of this moment. But we shall plunge ahead and give you a preview of our picks for tomorrow.
Our own home town Fins open up 2009 on the road at Atlanta, and we are worried. The Fins are +4 and the play here looks to be the Falcons and lay the points. The Fins start a rookie in the secondary, and the Falcons have the superior "non-gimmick" running game along with a great young QB.
The J..E..T...S open the season against an improving Houston Texan team that is giving up between 3.5 and 5 points. Give the points, and lets call it 4, and we like the under 45 as well.
The Tampa Bay Bucs are getting no respect as a home dog to the Dallas Cowpokes. This Cowpoke team will disappoint again this year, but this is a game to stay away from with the Bucs in disarray as evidenced by the firing of their offensive coordinator a week before the season began.
We also like the Cardinals -7 over the 49ers, and the Pack -3 at home over da Bears. Check in tomorrow with our final plays and the amounts.
And remember to bet with your head and not over it....unless you really really need the money and have a good feeling about the game.
