After DG ditched on the picks last week because of flying home from Myrtle Beach with strep throat (fourth time this year) the boys return to get you back on track in a lean week 9 slate with six teams enjoying their bye week. November is upon us, and with baseball ending it’s time for the NFL to take over on Sundays, as the temperature drops making for prime football weather.
A live look at DG as he sits in regret of his Bills survivor pick. It was a great night at JetLife Stadium with all three phases posing their dominance for Gang Green.
LordTreeSap – 20-14-1 (Lock 4-3)
Chiefs @ Cowboys (-2.5)
This should be the most entertaining game of the weekend. Without Zeke I may have leaned KC, but with the hottest running attack in the game back in tact I’m going to ride the ‘Boys at home in what should be a shoot-out. Dak and Alex Smith light it up in a great display of mobile quarterbacking. Cowboys get it done late in the 4th.
Lions (-2.5) @ Packers
Picking against the Packers in Lambeau is usually a no-no, but I’m going to keep doing it until I can see any kind of consistency out of Brett Hundley, whom I just don’t believe in. Detroit poses a solid defense and if they can convert those long drives from 3 into 7s they should be able to win in Green Bay for the second time in three years.
Bengals (+6) @ Jaguars
Cincinnati was not impressive at home squeaking by the Colts last week, but in a game that’s a must-win I’m riding with the points into Jacksonville. The Jaguars have alternated wins and losses all year, so they’re due for an L Sunday. Let’s hope that pattern continues for ‘Who Dey’ nation.
Buccaneers (+6.5) @ Saints
Tampa Bay’s season is on the line in New Orleans, who is much improved this year. The Saints kept Chicago in the game late last week and I expect some more of the same in this contest against the Bucs in the Big Easy, especially if Jameis Winston can take care of the football.
Lock: Redskins @ Seahawks (-7)
Seattle played in the game of the year thus far pulling out a dramatic win at home against the Texans last Sunday. After trading for Duane Brown to help sure up the offensive line, the Seahawks should have their sights set on locking down home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Russell Wilson is playing some great ball and the Redskins are super banged up coming into the match up. Jordan Reed and Trent Williams are not expected to play, I can smell a blow out in the making.
DG: 16-14 (Lock 4-2)
I’m back baby. Took last week off as I was at traveling all day. I was coming back from a golf trip in Myrtle beach (HB). Haven’t won a bet in two weeks so let’s get it!
Buccaneers @ Saints (-6.5)
What is wrong with the Bucs? Definitely one of the bigger disappointments this year. After a rocky start to the Saints season, things are starting to kick for Nor’lins (my best attempt at an accent). It’s scary that Brees hasn’t reached his true level yet. I think it’s the coming out party as the Saints go marching.
Falcons (-2.5) @ Panthers
Will the real Atlanta Falcons please stand up? Seriously. I picked you to go the Super Bowl. Start acting like it. The weapons and tools are all there. They just haven’t looked in sync. I actually think this will be a shootout so consider the over. I think Freeman runs wild as Matt Ryan throws 3 TDs for the win.
Cardinals @ 49ers (+2.5)
Home dogs! Why didn’t I listen to my own advice when I bet the Bills last night? Idiot. Not going against my own advice again. This game could be ugly in the battle of backup QBs. The 9ers win in Jimmy Gs debut on the sideline.
Bengals (+6) @ Jaguars
Jaguars are going to win this game, but 6 points is way to many to give to an offense with AJ Green. The Bengals have their backs against the wall and they’ve been playing well in the past few games. I love Swagsonville and Fournette will run wild, but Dalton keeps it close. Take the points.
Lock: Lions @ Packers (+2.5)
Home dogs! The Lions have been gifted this division and they can’t seem to get the job done. They’re fading fast and barely have a pulse. The Packers also looked awful 2 weeks ago without Aaron Rodgers. There’s a reason why this game is so close. It’s because McCarthy will open up the playbook for Hundley this week. Go Pack Go.
