Get Outta Delaware Park Week 13:Rocky Mountain High
Adam’s a little busy this week to make the picks, so aside from panicking desperately that another blog has woo’d my writer, I’m gonna go ahead and take my attempt at picking the NFL lines.
Mind you, I went 1/5 last week and I’ve been in Colorado the past 5 days inhaling rocky mountain air and organic granola burritos, so I can’t be held accountable for the ridiculous amount of money you could lose if you happen to listen to these. So lets gooooooooo.
Buffalo +5 over Minnesota – Even though the Vikings won with their new coach last week, Buffalo has been a legit contender losing 3/4 last games in OT. Field goals for every one.
Miami -5 over Cleveland – Chad Henne is coming back. Ricky Williams is getting high in the parking lot. They are at home (and don’t have many wins there) but I gotta think with Jake Delhomme making his 2nd start since injury, picks will be in abundance.
Jacksonville +3.5 over Tennessee – Yeaaaaa Rusty Smith making his 2nd start for the Titans after throwing 3 pics and getting shut out by the Texans last week. The Jags have been upsetting and holding their own.
Denver +10 over Kansas City – I have no idea about this game. Who knows what Denver team is going to show up, and Kansas City has literally gotten it’s biggest favored margin in what like 6 years?
Washington +7.5 over New York Giants – I think the Giants are gonna win, but McNabb can always keep a team in a game. A touchdown sounds about right.
Chicago -5 over Detroit – Ugh. I feel sick about this. Chicago at this point has to be considered legit though.
Green Bay -9.5 over San Francisco – Cannot play with em. Cannot win with em. Cannot coach with em. Can’t do it. I want winners. I want people who want to win. Aaron Rodgers will do that.
New Orleans -7 over Cincinnati – I wonder if at any point in the game, Carson Palmer trade’s uniforms with his brother, and he goes out and plays a quarter or two. New Orleans secondary vs. ANY Palmer? Yea, I’ll take NO.
Atlanta -3 over Tampa Bay – I think this is the point where Tampa Bay stops being considered a playoff contender team. September seems like a long long time ago, and with the Falcons rolling, Matty Ice is gonna destroy. Honestly, if I could though, I’d push. I could see Atlanta winning by a field goal.
Oakland +13.5 over San Diego – These two teams always play hard. I don’t see the Raiders winning, but I don’t see San Diego up by two TDs by the end of the game. It really all depends on what Oakland we’re gonna see.
Seattle -4.5 over Carolina – Uhhhhh seriously? I know the Seahawks aren’t that good, but John Fox is literally mailing it in the rest of the season. Jonathan Stewart is back you say? Who gives a shit. Lofa Tatupu could handle the entire O line himself.
Dallas +5.5 over Indianapolis – I smell an upset.
St. Louis -3.5 over Arizona – Well, Derek Anderson could back up all the insane jabber that came out of his mouth in that post game interview, but most likely he’s just going to continue sucking and enjoy his fifteen minutes. Sam Bradford IS the best QB coming out of last year’s draft, and the Rams are for sure a better team than San Francisco.
Pittsburgh +3 over Baltimore – I actually don’t understand this line at all. The Ravens have lost almost every game against Pitt except earlier this year when Charlie Batch was QB and it was only by a late field goal. Big Ben ain’t hurt. He ain’t going nowhere.
New England -3.5 over New York Jets – I’d feel a lot more comfortable if the line was 3. It’s going to be a close game, but I have to take experience (and cheating) over shit talking and a lucky record. Rex Ryan is a douche.
Don’t you feel confident about those picks now?
