Cincinnati @ Miami NFL Thursday Night Football

Oh, did you think I wasn’t going to take a side in this game.  Wrong.  It’s Halloween. There’s things to be done.  (I hate Candy Corn…just saying)

Cincinnati Bengals at Miami Dolphins

I like Cinci in this one.  I don’t have time to explain.

NFL Thursday Night Football Cincinnati Bengals Miami Dolphins

10 of 13 last week but the games were kind of predictable — second guessed myself on the Arizona Atlanta matchup and switched to Atlanta — always go with your first pick unless there’s been some sort of bleve (boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion) somewhere nearby that’s distracting you.  Missed the Pittsburgh game — I am loathe to even discuss that and Eli Eli Eli … could you keep some sort of continuity going? Even if it is losing.

Week 9’s got 13 games as well — not quite so predictable this time round.  I’m going to go think about this for a day or two.

How to be a genius NFL game picker & Week 6 Thursday Night Game

Realize that there’s no such thing — there are only moments of brilliance that appear to be genius.  Like me picking The New York Jets over Atlanta in Week 5’s Monday Night Football game.  Genius.  Cleveland over Buffalo — got that one but just cause I don’t like to pick BuffaloIndy over Seattle — that one was pretty good too.

Last week I went 8-6 — totals 45-32

Bringing us to tonight’s matchup — and I use that term loosely.  The New York Giants at Chicago.  I’ve taken the Giants a few times this season and they did me … and an entire State … wrong.  If I had a reason to take them I would … but I don’t and I will be catching up on Grey’s Anatomy if they freaking play like they’ve been playing so far.

NFL … Is this Week 5?

It’s Week 5 here.

There was some upsets last week – they upset me – we’re not going to discuss them.

Going in Week 5 @ 37-26 (Mommy’s not happy with this)

Anytime spreads are 3 and under it basically means that the “experts” don’t have a clue who’s going to win – This weeks there’s 6 games in that range including a PK – might as well toss up a coin.

That being said:

New England over Cinci – it’s like a tradition.  New England isn’t immune to getting their clock cleaned but neither is Cinci liable to beat them.

Detroit over Green Bay – yes – it’s in Green Bay but I’m taking them anyway.

Indy over Seattle – Seattle and Russell Wilson are pretty hot right now just winning their 4th in a row to start a season, something that hasn’t been achieved in 400 years or something like that.  They’ve beat some crap teams to do so.

Miami over Baltimore – Miami at home.

New Orleans over Chicago – Chicago does have a good defensive line but New Orleans’ is better.

New York Giants over Philly – Between these 2 teams and the 8 games they’ve played between them – there’s been 1 win and that went to Philly.  The Giants can have this one … if they want it bad enough

Tennessee over Kansas – 2 not so good teams – as above – someone’s gonna have to win … or they could tie I suppose.

St. Louis over Jacksonville – Odds makers have give St. Louis a big spread on this one but I wouldn’t pay too much attention to it.  All things considered, they should win.

Arizona over Carolina – Just giving it to them on a home field advantage – sometimes you can’t overthink these things.

Denver over Dallas – need I explain this?

San Francisco over Houston – every week Kaepernick has more to prove – he’s kind of doing it but he needs to do it in a bigger way … on the field.

San Diego over Oakland – San Diego scores and lets points in – working in their favor is a low scoring Oakland team.

New York Jets over Atlanta – in Atlanta – sometimes you just have to live dangerously.
