After going 3-1 last week I figured that I would post my picks this week. I took all of the underdogs again. The Saturday games are my favorite.
Baltimore +3.5 – Each of the last four meetings have been decided by exactly three points. These teams are evenly matched, in fact the Ravens are probably slightly better. This game should go down to the wire. The hook could make all the difference in the world.
Green Bay Packers +2.5 – I think the Packers will win the NFC. The books seem to think so too. Some Las Vegas sportsbooks have the Packers at the same odds to win the Super Bowl as the Falcons. This would seem odd because the Falcons would host two games where the Packers would have to play on the road both games and are underdogs here to the team they are equal to in odds to win it all. The Packers are healthy, have discovered a running game and are on fire. The Falcons are simply overrated in my opinion. They beat up on the Panthers, Bucs and the NFC West for 8 of their wins.
New York Jets +9 – The Patriots are certainly the better team here but I don’t see this being a blowout. I think the Patriots host the AFC Title game next week, they just don’t win this in a big way. Don’t bet the farm on this one though.
Seattle Seahawks +10 – This is a better team than people think. Sure they aren’t a great road team but they beat the Bears earlier this year on the road. I think this will actually be a low scoring game. Cutler has a way of giving away games and this could be one of them. Don’t expect a blowout here.
Good luck this weekend on the games but only if you are on my side. Remember that sports gambling probably isn’t legal where you are so make sure to place that bet legally.
