Week 10

Pittsburgh-10 at INDIANAPOLIS 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS…….Pittsburgh -10
The Colts are a mess and just parted wssys with Vontae Davis awkwardly and have a ton of injuries defensively on a unit that is giving up the most passing yards per game in the NFL.  In comes Big Ben and company of a bye.   Look for theSteelers to top 30 for first time this year with Martavais Bryant getting into the sand zone.   Pittsburgh has beat theColts by 24.3 points the last 3 years and that was withAndrew Luck.
Pittsburgh     37
Indianapolis  13

Week 9

Atlanta-2.5 at CAROLINA 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS  ………Atlanta-2.5
Falcon have won the last 3 contests but this is a different Atlanta offense this year so far.  Matt Ryan and company have struggled in the red zone burr can move the ball.   Their defense has held the last 3 opponents to under 300 yards in the last 3 games.   Carolina hasn't topped 300 yards in their last 2 games,  and the running game is non existent.  Panthers locker room is stunned after losing Kelvin Benjamin.  That will adversely affect the immature Cam Newton in this one as the road team wins a low scoring game. 


Atlanta   23
Carolina 16


Week 8
Atlanta -6 at NEW YORK JETS
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS……. NEW YORK JETS +6
Atlanta is not the same with Sarkesian at the offensive Helm to put it lightly.  Jets are some bonehead plays and controversial calls away from an impressive season.  Jets will shut them down against the run and reduce scoring chances. McCown rebounds behind strong running effort and special teams come up big for New York. Look for the struggling road team to go 0-4 vs the ACC at the  Take the points.
Atlanta 21
NY Jets 23

Week 7

Arizona +3.5 vs LA Rams
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS….Arizona +3.5
Arizona has been in London since Monday where the Rams stayed in North Florida after playing in Jacksonville last week.  The aging Cardinal vets are playing well with Palmer second in NFL passing yards.  However, the story will be the Arizona defense that crushed Goff and the Rams 44-7 last year.  Arizona’ s run defense which only gives up 3.3 per carry will look to bottle up Todd Gurley and force Goff to beat them.  Not an easy task with Shutdown corner Patrick Peterson suiting up after leaving with injury last week .  Look for Goff to have his third bad game in a row in a low scoring game and take thefavorable 3.5 point spread for the Cardinals.

2017 WEEK  6
Miami  +12 at ATLANTA 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS….ATLANTA -12
Miami has fans chanting for Matt Moore , Jarvis Landry calling it embarrassing, O line Coach Forster resingns after Coke video, Gase pointing the finger at players over subpar performance. Now they go on the road vs a rested and talented Falcon team that look to explode offensively.  Quick hitting defense will keep Jay Cutler to a disappointing under 200  passing yards and a couple turnovers as the Dolphin floundering run game will not be able to get going at all.  Blowout  looming. 
Miami      13
Atlanta     31


2017 WEEK 5

Buffalo +3 at CINCINNATI 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS…..Buffalo +3
Bill Lazor is doing a fine job with Andy Dalton and the passing game, but they are going up a defense that held Siemien  to 57% completion rate and 2 INTs, Matt Ryan to 54% and 1 TDs and 2 INT. The Bengals also have trouble running the ball and and though Tyrod Taylor doesn't put up huge numbers, he is efficient with a 100.7 QB rating, while holding opposing QBs to an NFL 2nd best 64.1.  Should be low scoring , take the points and the hotter team.
Buffalo      19
Cincinnati  17

2017 WEEK 4

Carolina +9 at NEW ENGLAND 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS…….. NEW ENGLAND-9
Tom Brady has QB rating of 146, 8TDs and 0 INTs in the last 2 games.  Cam Newton was benched ladt week after clearly not recovered from rotator cuff surgery.  Panthers have mustered just 1 TD in the lkast two games.  New England is worst in the NFL against the run, but Christian McCaffery and company have not done much on the ground this season.  Patriots get Donta Hightower back as well.  Carolina simply doesn't have the ability to match the offensive output of the Patriots who will pull away in the second half.
Carolina          13
New England  30

2017 WEEK 3

Baltimore vs Jacksonville O/U 39.5
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS…..UNDER 39.5
Two struggling offenses that are being led by their solid defense s.  Turnover machine Blake Bortles is seeing his role diminished as he had a career low 21 attempts last week.  Both teams rely on the run as their passing games have been so terrible so far.  Baltimore has offensive line issues however, so Calais Cambell may gave another multi sack game in this low scoring affair that London seems to always get to see.
Baltimore     16
Jacksonville 10

2017 WEEK 2

New England -6 at NEW ORLEANS 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS…….New England -6
The Patriots have gone 42-6 after a loss since 2004.  Belichick has had 10 days to try to right some of t he issues of last week's loss.  Facing the Saints porous pass defense may be just what they need to have Tom Brady play like his usual self.  The Saints play a lot better at home but are coming off a short week and still without Willie Sneed and are having trouble running the ball. Look for Gronk and Brandin Cooks to have a big day against his old team in a bounce back win for New England.
New England   28
New Orleans    20


2017 WEEK 1

​Pittsburgh -9 at CLEVELAND 
THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICKS IS…….Pittsburgh-9
Deshone Kizer should be a junior at Notre Dame not going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense. Look for the Steelers to give him many different defensive looks and attack him from different positions and angles. This is a tall order for a Rookie’s first start and it will not go well. Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown both find the end zone as the Steelers get up by two touchdowns at halftime.
Pittsburgh  30
Cleveland   10


SUPER BOWL LI

total FGs by both teams  O/U 3.5(-115)......OVER, 2 good defenses, 2 good kickers, no wind

will either team score in first 5 minutes? (-115)  yes, Falcons led NFL in opening drive TDs

Dion Lewis total rushing yards O/U 42.5 (-110)  OVER, he will be big part of game plan.

T. Cole man first rec O/U 15.5 yards (-115)  UNDER, likely early check down, Pats ready.

Luke Bryan National Anthem O/U in seconds 127.5 (-105) OVER, all take their time.


CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK

Green Bay at ATLANTA O/U 60.5

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS............OVER 60.5

 Green Bay has scored 34.8 points per game and Atlanta has put up 36.7 in the last seven games.  With weather not a factor on a fast track and two explosive offenses with QBs at the top of their games, the point should be plentiful.  Even with injured wideouts on both teams, expect the high octane shootout we want in this one.  


DIVISIONAL WEEK 

Seattle +4.5 at ATLANTA 

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS .....ATLANTA -4.5   WINNER

Seattle has the best  rushing defense allowing just 3.37 yards per carry, however Atlanta has 2 amazing backs and and a very balanced attack that was the highest scoring team in NFL.  The Seahawks were not a good road team going 3-5 ATS and scoring just 15.9 points per game while allowing 19.5. Their inconsistencies will emerge in this game as head coach Dan Quinn is very familiar with them having been defensive coordinator there for years prior.  Big day for Julio Jones as the Falcons get the second elusive win in Matt Ryan's career.

Seattle   20

Atlanta   28


WILD CARD WEEK 

Oakland +3.5 at HOUSTON -3.5

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS......HOUSTON-3.5     WINNER

No surprise here.  First time in NFL history that a QB first start will be a playoff game.  It will be a tough go for Connor Cook as he faces a capable Texans defense that only gave up 16.6 points per game at home and can bring pressure.  Look for Clowney and company to harass Cook all day long and do sack him 4 times.  The Raiders managed 30 rushing yards when they lost to Houston in week 11, and on the other side, Lamar Miller returns after missing 2 games.  Brock Osweiler will do enough against the Raiders porous secondary to get the win.

Oakland  13

Houston  21




WEEK 17

Jacksonville +4.5 at INDIANAPOLIS 

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.............INDIANAPOLIS -4   push

Nof more interim coach fire to fuel a fisty performance this week as Indy will play hard and try to keep winning for chuck Pagano.  No Chris Ivory or TJ Yeldon will hurt Blake Bortles chances and make them one dimensional.   Look  for Bortles to add to his horrible turnover totals on the season as the season mercifully ends for both teams.

Jacksonville   16

Indianapolis  23


WEEK 16

NNew York Jets +17 at NEW ENGLAND 

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.........NEW ENGLAND-17

 Big spread but it won't matter in this one.  Jets have not scored more than 17 points in regulation in the last 5 games and Bruce Petty will struggle against the surging Patriots defense. Brady and company looking out lock up home field throughout and will not take foot off gas. Big win.

New England  35

New York Jets 13



WEEK 15

Indianapolis +4.5 at MINNESOTA

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.... MINNESOTA -4.5

​Sam Bradford is a little banged up, but will start and try to keep his methodical play and NFL best 71.2% completion percentage going against the Colts.  Indy will be starting 3 rookies on the O line due to injury, which should be good news for the Viking front 7.  When teams can bring pressure and run the ball well, the Colts struggle.  We will see if Adrian Peterson's role in his first action since week 2 is enough.   Minnesota is 2-2 in their last 4 with the 2 losses by a combined 5 points vs Dallas and Detroit, while only giving up 49 points int he last 3 games.   Luck will be pressured all day and make some poor throws and resulting in as many turnovers as touchdowns.


Indianapolis   14

Minnesota      23



WEEK 14

Arizona -2 at MIAMI

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS . .........Arizona -2   loss

 David Johnson leads the NFL in total yards from scrimmage and the Dolphins are last in the NFL surrendering 130 rushing yards per game.  look for David Johnson to have a huge game especially with Kiko Alonso Miami's leading tackler out.  Arizona is a much more talented, veteran team than the Dolphins whose playoff hopes are starting to vanish.   Jumpon the small spread now.


Arizona  27

Miami    20




WEEK 13

Denver -3.5 at JACKSONVILLE  O/U 40

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS . ......Denver and Under 40   2 WINNERS

Paxton Lynch will start for the Broncos against the reeling Jags who have not won at home since Dec 13, 2015.  The losing streak will extend to a calendar year after this loss, which might just be the last for Gus Bradley.  With no Chris Ivory, Allen Hurns, Julius Thomas, and TJ Yeldon hurting, the Jags dont have much of a chance.  Denver's swarming defense will dominate the day in a very low scoring game with rookie RB Davontae Booker getting a ton of carries in this one.  Take the Broncos to cover the FG spread and the total to stay under in this one.

Denver           21   20

Jacksonville   10   10  Final


WEEK 12

Tennessee-6 at Chicago 

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.........Tennessee-6.

Matt Barkley gets the start against a desperate Titans team that needs to win to keep slim hope alive.  They will get versus a bad Bears team that will be without its starting QB, best WR Jeffrey, leading tackler Freeman and Guard Kyle Long.  The wheels are about to come of in Chicago as Demarco Murray runs all over the floundering Bears.

Tennessee    30

Chicago    13

THANKSGIVING DAY

Minnesota +2.5 at DETROIT 

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.......DETROIT -2.5   WINNER

 Matthew Stafford has eight touchdown passes and zero picks in his last for home games. he also has 10 touchdowns to only 2 interceptions  in his last 3 Thanksgiving day games, all wins.   Minnesota's League worst offense averaging only 217 yards a game will likely be without their best player in Stefon Diggs. they also have a slew of injuries on the defensive side of the ball with three conerbacks not practicing.   Look for marvin jones and Golden Tate to have big days as the Lionsgo up by double digits and take division lead outright.

Minnesota  13     20

Detroit         26     23 Final 


WEEK 11

Chicago +7.5 at NEW YORK GIANTS

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS....NEW YORK GIANTS -7.5

The Bears are imploding as the infighting and finger pointing gets louder and louder.  With Alshon Jeffrey serving a suspension, this team has very limited play makers and Cutler is turning into a turnover machine as he tries to make something happen offensively.  Meanwhile Manning and Beckham have been putting up solid numbers during their 5 game win streak.   Rashad Jennings return gives them balance as well.  Look for the outstandng O line play for New York to continue as the Bears only sack Manning once ans Big Blue marches on toward the postseason.



WEEK 10

San Francisco +13.5 at ARIZONA

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS......ARIZONA -13

Colin Kaepernick completed 9 of 19 for 67 yards, had 4 INTs 2 of which were pick 6s last time he played at  Arizona. He will have to have an amazing game to counter his own defenses problems.  San Fran has given up 33 points or more 6 times or more this year ans 4 in a row, and has also allowed 7 straight 100 yard rushers, an NFL record.  Cardinals, on the other hand own the NFL's best defense giving up only 297 yards per game, and a very hot David Johnson and are coming off a bye at home.  Lay the big number and expect a big win.


San Francisco  16

Arizona     35



WEEK 9

Jacksonville +7.5 at KANSAS CITY

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS ........KANSAS CITY -7.5    loss

Chiefs are 3-0 SU at home.  Where they average 28 and allow just 17 ppg.  The Jags average 17.7 on the road and surrender 30 ppg.  Look for those trends to continue even with Nick Foles at QB.  The running games will be the difference in this one, as Jacksonville will struggle to top 80 yards on the ground all game.  The hot seat is under Gus Bradley grows warmer by the day.

Jacksonville     13    14

Kansas City     27    19  Final


WEEK 8

Washington +3 vs Cincinnati  (London)

Cincinnati has not player listed int he injury report, which is rare.  They rebounded nicely against the hapless Browns as they look to get to -4-4 before their bye.  Washington has a few key offensive weapons hobbled as Matt Jones is out and Jordan Reed coming off a concussion.  Look for Jeremy Hill and Giovanni Bernard to put up big numbers on the ground against the 26th ranked rushing defense, who gives up 119.7 YPG.  AJ Green will find the end zone as well as the Bengals claw their way back into he AFC North race.

Washington    17

Cincinnati        24



WEEK 7

New England -7 at PITTSBURGH

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.......New England -7    WINNER

With no Big Ben this matchup lost its luster.  With Landry Jones the Steelers chances of keeping it a one score game are slim.  Antonio Brown has not scored a TD int he 11 games without #7.  Le'Veon Bell will definately get an increased workload and should perform against the banged up Patriots linebackers, but Pittsburgh has had trouble defensing Gronkowski and Brady is lifetime 6-2  with 22 TDs and only 3 INTs.  The Steelers will look to get their revenge in the playoffs after dropping 2 in row without their leader.


New England   28      27

Pittsburgh       16       16  Final


WEEK 6

Pittsburgh -7.5 at MIAMI

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.........Pittsburgh -7.5    loss

Big Ben leading NFL is TD passes with 15, 9 of which came in last 2 weeks, with off 2 impressive performances while sustaining injuries. Eli Rodgers is back if Sammie Coates cant perform, and Le'Veon Bell looks to exploit Miami rush defense the NFLs worst, giving up 158.3 ypg.    Conversely, Ryan Tannehill has 4 turnovers in the last 2 weeks and has been sacked 11 times.  Even without Cam Heyward, and Ryan Shazier, the Steelers D get 3 sacks and Tannehill continues to struggle along with his rookie Head Coach Gase.

Pittsburgh   35      15

Miami           10       30  Final


WEEK 5

New England -10 at CLEVELAND

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS ........New England -10   WINNER

No surprise here.  Tom Brady back, anxious to play well,  Bill Belichick pissed after getting shutout by loudmouth Rex Ryan, against rookie QB Cody Kessler and the hapless Browns.  Brady is 11-0 vs teams that are 0-2 or worse.  This one will get ugly fast.

New England     35    33

Cleveland           13    13  Final


WEEK 4

Denver -3 at TAMPA BAY

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.........Denver -3    WINNER

Denver is coming off an impressive win over Cincinnati last week, and Trevor Siemian looks more capable of being the starter every game.  The Bucs broke out with an impressive offensive performance last week against the Rams, but still lost after giving up 37 to the inconsistent LA team.  Mike Evans is leading the NFL in receptions and slot receiver  Adam Humphries and TE Cameron Brate emerged last week. However, they will have their hands full with Denver' defense.  Talib and Harris should contain the Bucs receivers quite well, while the front 7 gets to Winston at least 4 times.   Look for turnovers to result as Tampa is only better than the Jets in turnover margin with -6.  Denver rolls on.

Denver          27       27         

Tampa Bay   17         7  Final



WEEK 3

Chicago+7 at DALLAS

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.......DALLAS -7     WINNER

The Bears will be without several key players vs the Cowboys. Jay Cutler, Alshon Jeffery, Lamar Houston (IR), Danny Trevathan, and Ed Goldman are out for this contest.  Hoyer gets his first action since his horrible outing vs the Chiefs in the playoffs last year.  Those key injuries will not help the Bears position as the worst scoring percentage for offensive drives.  Cowboys rout.

Chicago  13      17

Dallas      33      31  Final


WEEK 2

San Francisco +13.5 at CAROLINA

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.......CAROLINA -13.5     WINNER

The 49ers won 28-0 in week 1, but that looks to have more to do with the new LA Rams being that bad instead of San Fran being that good.  They travel cross country on a short week to the well rested Panthers having played last Thursday.  Carolina will be looking to avenge their 10 point 4th quarter collapse last week and have won 13 straight at home by an average of 14 points per game.  Look for dominant defensive performance and Cam Newton spreading the ball around early and then literally running away with the win the second half.  


San Francisco   10      27

Carolina             30      46  Final      


WEEK 1

San Diego +6.5 at KANSAS CITY

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS.........KANSAS CITY -6.5     loss, (by .5)

The Chiefs have one of the best rushing offenses and the Chargers had one of the worst rushing defenses last year.  Don't expect too much improvement from this Bosa-less bunch.  San Diego only averaged just 240 yards of offense in both losses last year to KC and lack any weapons to stretch the field.  Andy Reid is always great with extra time to prepare for an opponent as well.  Chiefs win big in the loud, comfy confines of home.


San Diego      10      27

Kansas City    28      33  Final



Carolina -3 at DENVER

THE FOOTBALL WINNING PICK IS..........Carolina -3   loss

Cam might say this is not a revenge game, but he definitely wants the win.  Going against an unproven Trevor Siemian helps who also does not have the help they did on defense this time around.  Look for the Panther run game to move the chains and allow Cam to turn long drives into points.  Expect a low scoring game that Carolina manages better than the home team as Denver adjusts to their new QB.

Denver      17       21

Carolina    24       20  Final
