NFL WEEK EIGHT
3-3 dropping 2.70 units last week. I can live with that. I felt like I had a horrible week, but barely lost and I am still in the plus for the year. Here is what I got for week number 8
New England -2½ (-110) vs. Pittsburgh……….(bought a half point)……(3 unit best bet)……Why not buy it down to 2½ It was -3 at +110. I would rather lay my usual -110 and get it down to less than a field goal. Steelers have shown moments of being back, they there are not the same team….especially on defense. Plus give Pats coach an extra week to prepare and we have a solid investment. Steelers will not be able to keep this Pats offense in check the whole game. Steelers might score a few, but Pats will score more.
Detroit -3 vs. Denver (3 unit best bet)…………..I am banking on Stafford playing. If not I may have to buy this one off and lose the vig. Detroit too good to lose three in a row. Don’t let Denver’s win over Miami fool you, they were completely dominated. Tebow is not an NFL QB, he just cannot throw. If Miami sacked Tebow a billion times, Detroit’s D line should have two billion sacks.
NY Giants -9½ vs. Miami (2 unit play)…………..I just cannot picture Miami’s horrible offense scoring very much in this game. At the same time Miami may have been able to stop Denver’s QB less team, but they won’t have the same luck against the Giants QB. This one might get ugly.
Jacksonville +9½ vs. Houston (2 unit play)……………While it may have been a fluke shutting down Baltimore last Monday night, I have to go with that defense plus all these points. Keep in mind the Jags scored enough to win against the vaunted Baltimore defense. Might see another low scoring game where the points come into play.
St Louis +14 vs. New Orleans (1 unit play)…………..The only reason I am taking this is because I cannot think of a single reason to take St Louis. Looks like look you can a million dollars on the Saints and we all know what happens when it looks this easy.
Carolina -3 vs. Minnesota (1 unit play)…………….Carolina went from sucking last year to being favorites this season. I will try them again.
Good Luck Everybody!!
