UPDATE: 5-0 Game picks week one; 1-2 totals.
UPDATE: Survivor pool is posted below. The KC/Texans game had a total of 54 points. If the Fins/Cheaters put up between 43-55 points, we are going to have some winners in the totals contest which pays a one week pass in the contest.
UPDATE: Fins lost 21-11. The total was 32 + 54= 96 is the winning number. And your winners are: Rick Freedman(95) and The Ren (A Venue)(97). YOU MUST USE YOUR FREE PASS BEFORE YOU PLAY THAT WEEK. IT IS LIKE A SURVIVOR IMMUNITY IDOL. IF YOU DO NOT PLAY IT AND LOSE THAT WEEK YOU ARE OUT. Kindly act accordingly.
We lost eight good players in the first week with their picks off the Fins, Colts, and Eagles. The KC and Ravens and Bills plays were the safest. 23 out of 31 remain.
And we are off and running. The 2020 NFL season has begun. They pulled it off without preseason games (say goodbye to those for the future) and with keeping players and staff safe. The NFL gets a Well Done...Well done indeed from us.
We cannot promise we will be providing weekly picks and insights that some many readers have used to fund their boats, vacation homes, children's education...but we will try. Time zone issues make this a bit of a problem. We start the season 1-0 with our pick of KC over the Texans this past Thursday. (Win)
Your Miami Dolphins are playing the Cheaters in New England and we will be listening to this game via satellite radio. The Cheaters start a new era with Cam Newton at QB. He has a chip on his shoulder and we cannot advise taking the Fins +6.5. For fun we are taking a flyer on the money line for Miami +250 (250 for every 100 bet on Miami to win without any points), but the pick here is Cam&Bill -6.5. WIN
J...E...T...S JETS JET JETS! shuffle off the Buffalo to play the resurgent Bills who have to be a favourite to win the division this year. Buffalo is for real. Give the 6.5 in this one. Sorry to say this, but shortly the NY Jets will be on the clock for the number one pick in the 2021 NFL draft. WIN
Browns at Ravens. Latst year when we had never heard of Covid, in week four the Browns blasted the Ravens 40-25. After that game the Ravens went on a tear and they are a different team. The Browns will always be the Browns and that means give the 8 and take Baltimore. WIN
The game of the day has QBs with a combined age of 84 years. In their NFL careers Drew Brees and Tom Brady have thrown a combined 1,088 TDs and 151,987 yards. Brady is now a Buccanner and his coach Bruce Arians is a QB whisperer. But we like the talent surrounding Brees: Alvan Kamara at RB and WRs Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Take the hometown Saints -3.5. WIN
Here are some totals we like:
Raiders/Panthers under 48 (L); Bears/Lions under 44.5(L); Titans/Broncos over 41.5; Browns/Ravens under 48. WIN
We will have the survivor pool up Sunday around 1pm. There is still time to enter. Send a pick to Fbpool12@gmail.com.
