Editors Note--Well, it has already been much discussed all over the land how Indy blew the easy 6.5 point cover on Sunday. This cost Big D (and us) a bid for a PERFECT SEASON. That's right. SEASON. So, he remains "only" 5-1 on the season now in the NFL.So that's a "mere" 83%. The picks for Week 3 are now upon us. Without any further a doo doo, here is the Winning Wizard With Wisdom, the handicapper to the hoi polloi (and everyone else), world famous, BigDick!!--R.B.
That certainly was unlucky with Mr. Luck on Sunday in Denver. 2-1 we will take. But we ain't happy about it, and we got something for the Colts down below. Perfection is what we want. Speaking of, here are 3 selections for Sunday.
We didnt see the stats last week as to how many tackles/sacks Adrian Peterson had against the Packers (a Big D outright WINNER fyi). Oh he didn't have any. Cause he plays running back! Well, he's out of Sunday's game against the defending NFC Champs. How about the cats that were tackling and sacking Green Bay a bunch? Oh they're all playing? Oh ok. How does Cam Newton do when facing tough defenses? Righty. Oh we get 7 points with the VIKINGS who have been covering a bunch dating back to even last year? Take MINNY-SO-DAHHHH.
The Dolphins had a good second half last week. They're still 0-2 though. Now they have their home opener. In steamy hot Miami. Hi Richie!! They play the hapless BROWNS who gave one away last weekend, and are also 0-2. The line is Miami-10. Um, is Coach Shula coaching? Maybe Bob Griese at QB? Csonka running? No? The fish have NO right laying 10 to anyone. We will take CLEVELAND in South Beach, baby!
Finally, the "sneaky play" of the week. If not for a 4th qtr collapse by the defense in Week 1, the CHARGERS would be in the drivers seat in the AFC West. 27 points at KC and 38 points home to Jacksonville, tells us the SAN DIEGO offense is in midseason form. J.S. Ragman (technical term meaning "regular guy") will be unloading on Indy because they are 0-2 and NEEEEEEEEEEED the game, if they want a legitimate chance to make the playoffs. Well you should know what happens when teams neeeeeeeeeed the game? They lose. This has nothing to do with revenge from last week. This is just business. The business we've chosen. The sneakiest part? SAN DIEGO "only" gets 2.5. Not 3 or even 3.5. Nope. 2.5. Something seems to always breakdown with the Colts. Look for it to happen again Sunday. Neeeeed. Indeeeed.
The happy go "lucky" recap for Week 3: MINNESOTA+7 @ Carolina, CLEVELAND+10 @ miami, SAN DIEGO+2.5 @ Indy. 3 fancy road dogs, increasing our stacks of money.
Now this is easily the most requested tune from you faithful folks every year. So we like to play it once a year. So we decided this is as good a week as any. Light the cigarettes, drink the "coffee", and enjoy. Here's to the blue skies and the GREENER wallets. Good luck and god bless.
