More on the Free NFL Pick of the Week

Questioned on the Atlanta pick. My response:

I think it should be more of a pick em. give me a field goal and a 1/2 point and I'm on the ATL.

Granted the Falcons have beaten up on some weaker teams, but I love the match up of the #1 rushing offense vs the 25th ranked rushing defense. Vick and Dunn run all day and Atlanta controls the clock.

For all bets, see last post.

Week 8 NFL Football Sports Betting: 7 Bets

This is a big week with 5 sides and 2 overs. Plays below :O)

San Francisco 49ers/Chicago Bears
29-October-2006 10:00 AM PST
Total Points OVER 41.5 for Game -104
Prediction: Bears it blow out early and San Fran scores well in garbage time.

St Louis Rams/San Diego Chargers
29-October-2006 1:05 PM PST
Total Points OVER 45 for Game -106
I like the Charges to win at home, but with key injuries to their defense (and other drama) I can't give points. BUT I can bet the over.

Jacksonville Jaguars (over Philadelphia Eagles)
29-October-2006 10:00 AM PST
Spread +9 for Game -118
I paid for a few extra points on this one, but with these prices, how could I not? I see a few points value in the line. The Jags should cover this one.

Cleveland Browns (over New York Jets)
29-October-2006 1:15 PM PST
Spread -1.5 for Game -115
The Brownies playing at really disappointed me last week. Well, the Jets are not Broncos, and I see Cleveland winning this one. WARNING: everytime I bet against the Jets I lose, but I'm still trying.

Oakland Raiders (over Pittsburgh Steelers)
29-October-2006 1:15 PM PST
Spread +9 for Game -104
Standard sports bet: Home dog getting nine points...

Atlanta Falcons (over Cincinnati Bengals) Free NFL Pick of the Week (should be a warning)
29-October-2006 10:00 AM PST
Spread +3.5 for Game -106
Vick and birds win this week (well, maybe). There is value in this line, and I'm betting it.

Monday night football bet:
Minnesota Vikings
30-October-2006 5:30 PM PST
Spread +1 for Game +101
Small home dog on Monday night. Minny is underrated this year, and the public is all over the Pats. This line opened at 3 and I wish I grabbed it. I still like it at 1.

Good luck this week.

NFL Week 7 Football Picks: Final Card

Added Play:
Miami Dolphins (over Green Bay)
22-October-2006 10:00 AM PST
Spread -6 for Game -110

What happened to Miami this year? SI had them to win the Super Bowl... Well they'll win today. The Pack is in bad shape, the running game is a huge question as are they're wide receivers. If Miami rushes Farve effectively today, look for him to give up some big turnovers.

Other games this week:
Buffalo Bills Spread +5 (over New England Patriots) NFL Play of the Week
Kansas City Chiefs +5 (over San Diego Chargers)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +5 (over Philadelphia Eagles)
Cleveland Browns +4.5 (over Denver Broncos)
Oakland Raiders +3 (over Arizona Cardinals)

Good Luck.
